    We did the group rate through Air canada vacations. 10 ppl booked with a deposit confirmed the rate which was good until about 6 weeks before teh wedding.

      So Missy, for the rest of your group, they had to pay a different rate, based on what was available? Did the rates end up being similiar, or was their a big difference. The group rate is so far quite a bit less expensive ($1726 taxes in, compared to $1735 plus taxes).

        Thank you for Miguel's email address Lauren. I was trying to find it, but it was deleted from the email that I was sent yesterday from my TA.

        I think we'll be OK too. When do you guys arrive and depart from the PRC?

                The group rate was the same for every guest (including us!). The way most bulk rates work is that to "secure" the group rate you need to have a minimum of 10 ppl book. We had our parents, grandparents and sibligns put down deposits before we even sent out our invites.

                We told ppl they could: 1) book through our TA and get the group rate 2) book on their own and look for a different rate

                Cost wise - the group for us was a little bit cheaper but not by much. For us it was about having everyone on the same flight and arriving and leaving on the same days.

                  Thanks Missy. That's how I understood the group rate as well. Trying to arrange a meeting with the TA tomorrow to sit down and discuss and get this sorted out.

                  In the meantime, I am happy to announce that I am officially a Paradisus bride!!! I spoke to Perla this afternoon and booked January 21st, 2010 for my wedding. So rain or swine, guests or none, I am getting married then!

                    Congratulations SMB&CRZ!! Good to have another Paradisus bride on board.

                    Lauren and FutureMrsC I hope everything works out in terms of being open. I can see that that could be very stressful!!

                      Congratulations! We should be able to give each other a lot of help as our wedding timelines are very similar (mine's the 9th!). I'm so excited for you! I can't believe that you are getting so many people to come. I am looking at 60 tops, but honestly that was the point of having it in Mexico otherwise we were looking at like...300 to 400. That's just crazy to me.
