Before you do anything, you will need to find some high quality candidates in your area to talk to. We always suggest that you start your search by beginning with your trusty web browser and search for “Atlantic City travel agencies.” Take a look at many of the websites that come back to you and pay particular attention to what customers have said about their service in the past.

Once you are seated across from each agent, take your interview task very seriously. Try and show up with a as many details as possible. Make certain the person you are talking with is going to be patient and pleasant to work with. Are they a member of any type of associations? You also want to make sure that they have a lot of experience. The last thing you want is to work with someone who will make a lot of rookie mistakes. If you have worked up a budget, which we believe is a very good idea, share it and stick to it. If the agent tried to up sell you, don't bite, if they continue, it is time to visit the next person on your list. Be flexible as to where you will stay because the agent might be able to obtain some pretty hefty discounts. Talk about the specifics of your wedding as well and see if they will be able to help you with all of the details at your chosen location. Make sure that they understand that the more reasonable they can keep it the better because your guests are footing much of the bill. Go home after all of your interviews and compare each candidate. It should become abundantly clear which candidate is the one to hire.
