Recommended Posts

Great thanks I've heard of her will check her site out!

Also does she charge for booking with her or Are most travel agents services free?

@@kmk2016 I would love to recommend LaurieLee, but she hasn't responded to my emails since July 21! She responded to my initial inquiry and said she'd get back to me by the following Wed, and then nothing. I sent her another email a few days later, nothing. Earlier this week, nothing. I just sent her one this morning asking if she was even receiving my emails since I hadn't gotten a response in over 2 months.

No she doesn't charge for her services. She has amazing relationships with the DW resorts and is such a pleasure to work with! She managed to get us a bunch of perks we wouldn't have known about otherwise!

Really????? I know she is knee deep in helping a 1/2 dozen brides who had their weddings cancelled in Cabo and who are devastated and left with little to no options... So she may be bogged down - but she is usually awesome at replying to emails! I wonder if she isn't getting them somehow!!!

HI! wondering who your travel agent was??  Canadian bride to be from Winnipeg here just starting out as well, just finding it overwhelming but looking to find a travel agent first that specializes in destination weddings.

thanks 

 

I couldn't find one in Calgary to return my phone calls, and didn't know of this site before I booked (ie - never knew of Laurielee).   My travel agent is in BC, but we do everything thru email and/or over the phone.  Her name is Christine Smith with Summit Travel. I can PM you all her info if you don't make headway anywhere else.    She is free, but I plan to send her a thank you gift as she has done A LOT for us... including Air Canada cancelling our flight and advocating we get a new one we want.   Let me know :)

First you need to narrow down the country then the resort. You may want to consider the Iberostar chain of resorts in Riviera Maya. There are 5 resorts on the same property from what I know and they have different price ranges. The Iberostar Paraiso Beach seems to be the cheapest. Essentially this might give your guests more pricing options while technically being on the same property. Something to consider.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
