I call upon you jerks of The Saloon once again for guidance. Who here is a travel agent, or has been to a destination wedding, or travels a lot? I need advice. Here's my deal: Friends booked through destinationweddigns . com I suspected they are just a re-seller of travel packages, I finally googled this, and it's true. among mostly bad reviews, the most popular suggestion to to got through Expedia, or the Resort directly. Most of these reviews are from the bride and meant for other brides organizing the whole shebang it seems. I don't know any travel agents to ask or have any as customers to ask these questions. I'm not picky. I just want to fly there on the day everyone else does, have a room on the same floor/wing as the other guests, upgrade to face the water not the jungle. can I make sure that all happens through an outside route? What are the perks of going through the site with the group? If not will I be left out of the ceremony? locked out of the banquet room? I just want to go, drink all day in the sun and save $800 or so. Oh, and rub against some bridesmaids, depending on my situation and if I bring a guest or not. Thanks, I'll take your answers off the air. No, I'll check in to answer any questions/provide more details.
