Find Your Nashville Wedding Travel Agency
We realize that there are weddings that happen everyday. And they happen in the same old way that thousands of other weddings do. If you really want to step outside the box and spice things up quite a bit, consider holding a destination wedding. Talk about a unique way to say I do. Think about it, you will be surrounding by your closest family and friends in the most romantic of settings. We are talking about a fairy take wedding that most people only dream about. A destination wedding can be as lavish or simple as you desire and there are numerous options to fit a wide variety of budgets. But that doesn't mean that they are easy to plan, especially the details. In fact, a destination wedding involves knowing the ropes and knowing the intricacies of planning an event that requires all of the people that are participating to travel to another location. This usually involves airline tickets and hotel rooms and many other details to be worked out. We cannot stress enough that it would be best for you to hire a professional travel agency to handle all of the details for you, the last thing you need is a lot more work heaped onto all of your other wedding plans. So, if you take our advice, you need to start searching around the Nashville area in order to find the travel agency that will suit your needs well. We have provided you with some tips below on how to do just that.
As you begin your search, allow us to put a bug in your ear about one thing. Look for a travel agent that has special training in and has been certified in Destination Weddings. And do not hire anyone that you do not meet in person. There is something about meeting someone in person that helps you to understand whether you will be able to work together. Make sure you know how many guests that will be coming to you wedding before you meet with any potential travel agencies. Alright, now to the nitty gritty work. You need to find some candidates in the Nashville area. We suggest asking your friends, family, and coworkers first and foremost. Has anyone you know had a great experience with a travel agency where everything was done decently and in order? If so get the agencies name. Also, you can do a Google search for "travel agencies in the Nashville area." Or have you considered your wedding vendors. There is a very good chance that one or more of your vendors has a contact name or two they could throw your way. Once you have your list, start checking each one out.
Setup face to face meetings with each one. Be ready to answer questions about your wedding and you should have questions ready to ask the travel agency. The first topic of discussion should be what price range you want to keep everything within for your guests. Keep in mind that this is a huge undertaking for your guests. The cheaper you can keep it the better and they will appreciate you for it. Talk to the agent about what they can do in this regard. Find out how long your guests will be wanting to stay at where your destination wedding is. Some might only stay as long as your wedding is going to be while others might want to make it more of a combination vacation. How much experience do they have? How many clients have they had in the last year? How many destination weddings have they planned and booked? Have they worked with the number of guests you will be having? Again, check if they are certified in Destination Weddings.
Talk about whether the agency will charge you or your guests fees. If they say that will be the case, we suggest that you move onto the next candidate because there should not be. Also, because they are a travel agency, they should be able to help you and your guests save quite a bit. Have a talk about whether all of your guests will be staying at the same hotel? D they offer travel insurance? Will they provide your guests with a listing of attractions and amenities and their locations in the area where your wedding will be. Once you have all of this great information, it will be time to book the travel agency that will have you and your guests where you need to be when you need to be there.
