So, you have decided to take your wedding plans to the next level and plan a destination wedding.

What you need is a professional travel agency who will be able to save you money and time and use their connections to get you exactly what you need and want. The Albuquerque area has plenty of great travel agencies to consider, you need the one that fits you and your plans perfectly. In order to make sure that is exactly what happens, we have put together this guide that you should pay very close attention to.
Your first task in this important quest is to locate some quality travel agencies in the Albuquerque area. There are a few different ways to accomplish this task. One of the easiest is to begin talking to your family, friends and coworkers. There is a very good chance that someone you know has hired and worked with a travel agency. If you receive some excellent feedback about one in particular, jot down their name and start keeping a list of potential candidates to service your wedding needs. You also should make an attempt to harness the power of the world wide web. Do a Google search for “travel agencies in the Albuquerque area.” Click on each website link and make your way through the list as you search for quality travel agencies. If any impress you, add their contact information to your list. And there is another source that many people neglect. Don't forget about your wedding vendors that you already have a relationship with? Once you like the list that you have accumulated, call each one up and make an appointment to talk to them about your wedding needs.
We urge you to take each interview that you conduct very seriously. Remember, who you hire could be the difference between your guests being at your wedding or still being on a plane to your wedding as you say I do. Talk about their experience in the travel field. How long has the agency been around? Do they have a good reputation? How many destination weddings they have planned and handled the details for? What size groups have they booked? Are they certified with any travel agency organizations? What are your payment options? What are your guests' options? What about travel insurance? Make sure that once you have conducted all of your interviews that you take the time to go home and do a side by side comparison of all of the vendors. Once you do, one of the candidates will emerge as the one to pull off your destination wedding.
