Destination Weddings: Reputable Vendor?

Q.

The in-house wedding coordinator at my resort keeps recommending vendors, but how do I know if they're really reputable?

A.

The best way to gauge whether a vendor is reputable regardless of what your in-house coordinator says (your taste may be different) is to ask to see his/her work. Make sure you're satisfied with what you see, and before making any final decisions, ask the vendor for American references -- other brides and grooms who have worked with them in the past. Then make those couples' experiences were picture perfect before signing on the dotted line.
