A destination wedding is a dream for most brides. The appeal of destination weddings is understandable—the magnificent setting, highlighted by the exoticness of the place, with every single guest having that vacation glow. The whole scene looks like it was taken straight out of a romantic novel. However it is also something that a lot of brides consider as a disaster waiting to happen if most of the guests have not traveled before, or if there is no one left to do the dirty work. If you are having one yourself, and still in doubt whether you should get a travel agent or not, check out the reasons below to help you decide!
A travel agent can help you look for and find the best room for the price that you want to pay. One of the primary things that you consider when planning a destination wedding is the price. Sure, this is the more expensive option, but by hiring a travel agent, you get to streamline your bookings to the price that you and your guests want to pay. Aside from that, getting the services of a travel agent is also equivalent to tapping into a network of discounts, since they already have relationships with most resorts. Get group discounts, bridal discounts, early bird discounts, and a lot more. Wedding packages also have hidden perks that only a travel agent can help you take advantage of.
You have someone at your beck and call to handle your guests’ travel needs. By getting a travel agent, you can already delegate the task of taking care of your guests’ travel needs. That’s good because we know that a bride already has a lot in her plate right? With a travel agent, you and your guests no need to worry about visa applications and other bookings. Plus, offering a convenient option is also a big factor when your guests decide whether to accept your wedding invitation or not.
Seamless service not just for you. Even if you are very travel-savvy, the same cannot be said for your entire guest list. Having someone that you, your wedding coordinator, and your guests can contact for travel and “tourist” related concerns is really helpful, especially for last minute ones. Your live band did not show up during the wedding reception? Your travel agent can hire the island’s best fire dancers in an instant! Your maid of honor needs speed boat for a surprise bridal shower? The travel agent can take care of that, too! So some of your guests want to extend their stay in the resort. No problemo because your trusty travel agent can make the necessary arrangements.
If you like the idea of a relaxing destination wedding then it is evident that you need a travel agent. I know that it’s an added cost and that you can DIY almost everything now, but the perks, the extra time that you get to allocate on the other details of your wedding, and the convenience that you and your guests can get with a travel agent is priceless!
