So, I found a TA i really like, from BDW. But, the problem is many of my guests are not comfortable with doing a credit card authorization and would prefer to do online payments. Since, I am marrying at Moon Palace it is essential that everyone books through the same source and I get that online payments are easier. So im stuck, the TA ive been working with is AWESOME and she has given me great rates.
One of my friends is using destinationweddings.com for their wedding and it allows online payments, but I dont like how you have to pay $50 before they start working with you and I have no clue what their rates will be. My TA from BDW said as long as we block our rooms and if other people want to join thats over our room block that they will have the same rates. Our friend using DW said we needed to pay our deposit by a certain time to get the group rate. Granted, the deposit was only $100 per room.
I have seen mixed reviews on DW so im absolutely confused on what to do and I want to make this convenient for my guests. Has anyone had this problem with people not wanting to do card authorization forms?
