I had a HORRIBLE experience with DestinationWeddings.com.... Was taking weeks just to get pricing for resorts I was interested in, and when they finally came back, all were well over the respectful budget I had asked my agent to stay within...
After over 2 months of frustration (no alternatives being offered, doing all my own research after paying the company to do this for me and lastly, being told that I should wait for it to be closer to the "one year away mark") I decided to start shopping around with another travel agency.
Good thing I did!!! Firstly, not only did they find my 1st choice resort IN the budget range I had asked for (strangely, the first company had quoted the same dates/same airlines, but was over $400 per person higher???) BUT I also received an "early booking bonus" of $200 off per person, which would have expired, had I listened to the first agent and waited any longer!
In my experience now, it takes agents approx. 2-3 business days maximum to receive their group rate quotes back from the Airlines.
P.S. When I contacted destinationweddings head office to report how my agent had left me hanging and missed the early booking discounts... I was refunded the money I had paid for their "services" Don't be afraid to shop around Ladies! I highly recommend "Flight Centre" for my fellow Canadian Brides!!!
