      I have tried to get in touch with Liz Moore Destination Wedding. I have not been able to get in touch with them. No response via email and I can't reach them by phone. I hear Laurie Lee is recommended, but I went to her website and it seems like it hasn't been updated in two years. I was wondering if she is still doing DW. It is so frustrating! Does anyone have insight or can message me a travel agent in Canada? Thanks so much.

      Oh no, I'm sorry they haven't gotten back to you. Did you send a generic inquiry or email Susan directly? I can email or call her if you like to contact you

        I had sent a generic email and called them multiple times but I couldn't get a hold of them and no response. I sent a direct email to them this afternoon, after I posted here. I received a response! Thank you all for your responses and help. I am so glad to have found this community. The amount of support and guidance is amazing.

        Hi ladies, great info. I was wondering how long in advance do you send out the info to you guests about booking their vacation package? We will be getting married in Cancun in April 2016, so when should ppl start booking?
        Thanks so much

        Depends. Did you get a group rate thru a travel agent or do you just hope people book alone? If thru a travel agent, the airline dictates the deadlines.

        Hi

         

        I am also a newbie bride-to-be from Toronto seeking a Travel Agent. I have been working with one but find the process really overwhelming! Too many emails, prices, deadlines..... head spinning for sur!

         

        My suggestion would be to narrow your resorts down to 1-2 places if possible. I was trying to find the "cheapest" 5 star resort within my time frame and it was not working. I am now going to worry less about the price (sorry guests!) and focus on finding a resort that does an excellent job at weddings.

         

        Still have not booked yet......


        @meandhim  - Thanks for the suggestions!

        Once you have your date booked, did you send out save the dates with the travel agency info? How are you telling guests that they need to pay the deposit asap?

         

        Thank you!

        I know an AMAZING agent if you haven't found one yet. One of my girlfriends found her when she was looking for a TA for her Destination Wedding and she referred me to her after going through so many agents who weren't helpful.

        She is super responsive, great prices and has been going above and beyond for anything i've needed/questions. If you haven't found one yet, let me know and I will give you her info :)

        Thanks for your reply! No, actually, we just decided this week that we will be getting married in Mexico, so I really haven't started planning. We're in Toronto, Ontario, but most of our guests will be coming from Montreal, so i would probably need to find a travel agent from there first.
