      I was going to recommend Joyce but I see she chimed in already. If you get the green light from your resort, I would definitely get in touch with her and see if she can help you out. I've already started working with her, and as soon as I get medical ok to go ahead with our plans, I'm going to get her help to book our vow renewal for next year.

       

      She has already made great suggestions and had ideas for what I want and I'm really happy so far.

       

      Good luck!

      Im curious, why would someone hire an outside wedding coordinator if the resort has coordinators?


      So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.

      I THINK why some go this route is that many brides want a beautiful wedding day, but don't want to deal with all the hassles of creating that vision. Putting together the little details can be not only time consuming- but overwhelming for some... And many find the WC process leading up to the wedding a bit daunting since you often have to know what to ask and what you want, since the WC really don't suggest a lot.

      For me, I'm waaaayyyy to type A/detail orientated and I love being a part of every little decision and part of the planning process. I think adding one more person in the middle would make me lose my mind- so I chose a TA that specializes in DW and can help me with certain aspects, while leaving the real wedding detail to me (which I love).

      It's whatever works best for each individual bride.

      What aspects is your TA helping you with outside your travel packages and maybe excursions?  Just curious if I am maybe missing some things myself :)  thanks!

      Mine is a GI certified rep who has affiliation with my specific resort (and many others in the area- GI is only the certification for my specific resort company)... So she is negotiating free events at the resort, created my save the dates, helped vett my DW website, is coordinating my pre-travel mailers and programs, suggesting reputable vendors and providing guidance on timing and activities I should arrange for my party.

      The other thing for me is that because we're going to be such a small group, and it's a renewal rather than our wedding, I've decided to go off site. I know what I want, and if we were a group of 25 or more, then I would go with a resort plan but they don't seem to do really well with very small groups in terms of still having private functions. It just seems that as soon as you go below a certain number, you have to go semi private instead. I also don't want beach for a ceremony. I have no desire at all for sand between my toes so I want something a little different that still keeps us near the water but without gawkers. Joyce has been super with suggestions and ideas.

       

      And I completely agree with @kmk2016 that for some people the planning part of it is just too time consuming for them and they want someone to handle the "little details" for them which a resort coordinator can't do since you still have to communicate with them. An outside coordinator will take it all and basically do it for you when you tell them what you want.

       

      I've said it before and will say it again. Your TA will become your new BFF, and when you look at what an agency like Wright can do for you, who wouldn't want a new BFF like @Tammy Host !!  Sorry - I figure a little sucking up can't hurt......

       

      But seriously, when you think about all the questions your guests might have, and the perks you might miss out on by not having a travel agent working for you and on your behalf, getting one just makes the most sense. It will take the stress away and they know things that I guarantee you don't!! lol
