Sealing travertine before grouting? Yes or no ?

I am involved on a re-building / remodeling project of a backyard patio floor. I am having travertine tiles set of the so called "brushed and chiseled" type. Friends and trade people including HD personnel have recommended sealing before applying the grout, to preserve the natural colors and look of the stone.
Installers think it is not needed. Reading on the web I have also found some opposed opinions, 
My main concern is the grout adherence to the edge of the tiles after applying the sealer which will probably run or spill to the edges.
Thank you in advance for any input.
