Talk about a unique way to say I do. There is nothing in this world that compares to having a destination wedding. Your friends and family will absolutely love you for it as they get a chance to have a little bit of vacation combined with your nuptials. You will all be in paradise as you say your vows in a location that has always been in your dreams. Truly, the sky is the limit when it comes to planning a destination wedding. But you also need to know that planning a destination wedding can be extremely overwhelming. There are so many details that need to be considered and hammered out and overlooking just one can all of a sudden send your special day down in flames. That is why we strongly urge you to find and hire a professional travel agency. They know the business of travel and they have experience working with wedding groups. Believe us when we tell you, this is one task that you do not want to take on, leave it to the experts. The El Paso area has some top notch travel agencies that should be able to help you. You just need to take your time and look for them. We want to help you with your search as much as possible so we have put this guide together to help you target the one vendor who will be able to pull off your unique destination wedding.
There is a great chance that you have never had to look for a travel agency before, but now you have been thrust into the moment. And you need to take this search very seriously if you want everyone to end up in the right place at the right time. Your best bet is to start talking to your family, friends and coworkers about your plans. Ask them if they have ever used a travel agency before and if all went well. If you get a name or two from them, you are off to a good start. Also, make sure of the wedding vendors that you have already hired. Being in the wedding business, there is a very good chance that they have a connection or two in the travel agency business. And we would be remiss if we did not advise you to use the world wide web. Do a Google search for “travel agencies in the El Paso area.” Check out quite a few of the results and try and find some online reviews of the companies that you take a liking to. These three sources should provide you with enough quality candidates that you can now start calling up each one and setting up a date and time to meet and discuss your wedding and what they might be able to do for you.
The first thing that you want to provide to each candidate is the number of guests that will be coming. Then talk about what kind of packages they offer that get all of your guests to your destination as well as a hotel room. Does everyone have to stay at the same hotel in order to realize any discounts? Can they help you set everything up for your wedding at the destination. For instance, can they arrange with the hotel to provide an officiant. What about someone to coordinate your wedding? Do they have references that they can provide to you so you can check how things went for another wedding party? When you feel really confident about a specific candidate and the price is right, ask them for a contract. Check it over with a fine tooth comb and make sure everything to be provided is spelled out. Now is the time to make any changes. Once you are satisfied, sign on the dotted line.
