Thread: What's the first step?

    What's the first step?

    Ok, so I'm overwhelmed. I've spent a lot of time searching for resorts, locations, wedding packages, photography, etc, but feel like I am still at step 0. Is it possible to have tooooo much info? I just want to make one decision to get the ball rolling, but can't seem to do it. What is the first step? How did you get started?

    I know the feeling! I know this is going to sound cliche, but GET A GOOD TRAVEL AGENT!! I did what you did and spent days looking down at my phone, and even made a spreadsheet to keep track of the hotels. The wedding packages were enough to drive me batty! I reached out to TA Shelli here on the forum and have been super duper happy ever since. She weeded through all the hotels and sent me her suggestions. I made my wedding deposit 5 days later. No joke! To all the brides out there reading this... get a travel agent to help! Ok, end PSA!

    Wow! I'm new and have already gotten my first tip! I will get a TA to help me with the planning. We are not sure where to go yet, but it is still early. I was just proposed to a week ago! Wish me well and thanks for the help.

    Hey Sammie! Yes, I did! What a world of difference. Thanks for the tip! I still odn't have a lot of decisions made, but at least I have direction now.

    I agree, get a TA and many other service providers to save you the hassle of trying to do everything on your own. I see a lot of brides-to-be trying to beat time and as the wedding day approaches, they are too stressed out and tired and so they keep waiting for the big to come and pass. A destination wedding (in particular) isn't easy to hack and you need a good travel agent to handle the logistics. It's actually good to hear someone recommend TA Shelli; makes it much easier for the rest of us.

    I've been working with Romance Travel and they have been great! Totally took the stress level down several notches! I see several "TA" agents from Romance Travel on this forum. I've been very impressed so far.

    I will totally vouch for Romance Travel Group, too. They have made my life so much easier! And no, I'm not getting paid to say that! hahahaha!

    You have to start by determining the budget, this will help narrow the circle!
