Hi,

 

There really are no cons to using a travel agent as we help negotiate the best rates and amenities as well as provide service and advice...most of all, we act as your advocate when issues come up.

 

Our agency does not charge a fee and gets paid by the hotel/supplier :)

 

If you want to ask any questions, feel free to use the link in my siggy :)

@@MrsGuralewycz2B,  You have plenty of time until October, with the right team of professionals you will be fine. I cannot think of any cons about working with a TA just as @@TammyWright mentioned.

 When it comes to working with a travel agent, find someone who specializes in Destination Wedding. The can help you narrow down your options, based on what on your requirements. Also find someone who you feel is a perfect fit for you, you will be trusting them with such an important occasion. They can get you a some special group rates. They also offer more benefits for your for the Bride and Groom for booking your group. Most bride who work with with travel agent are able to put their focus on the booking the resort part. while you put your focus planning the wedding.  

 

 

Happy Planning!

@MrsGuralewycz2B  I'm absolutely on the travel agent side!! First of all, why would you want the stress? Let a professional handle it. A good agent will work with your budget and the budget you have for your guests as well as helping you stay within that budget. They'll also help with your wants and don't wants. Your guests will have a resource for their questions instead of trying to contact you while you're in the middle of wedding planning! A travel agent is definitely the way to go and one that specializes in destination weddings is a good route to go. The owners of this site - Wright Travel - are destination wedding specialists. You can go to the top search area and look under vendor reviews for the section on travel agents and see what past brides have said about their experience.

 

I'm also an October bride and we renewed our vows this past October in Mexico. For health reasons I couldn't go full steam on planning until about this time last year and it all came together in time so you're fine to put it together for October of this year!

 

Good luck and happy planning!

@MrsGuralewycz2B Congratulations on your engagement!!! 

 

Las Caletas is a truly magical place to exchange your vows and celebrate this special occasion. It is our private beach cove in the south bay and is only accessible by sea, giving it the seclusion and ambiance of an island hideaway. It covers an enormous area and features several beaches, a pyramid amphitheater built into the tropical forest and mountain side, various facilities/buildings (spa, kitchens, eating areas/restaurants, bars, restrooms, etc.), and several hundred acres of tropical forest.  We have Plenty Space for October 2016 (including wekend)

 

Our 3 wedding packages are just perfect for a beach wedding, please find  our website and packages on this link: http://bit.ly/PlanYourWedding

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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!
