How much did it cost for your guest to attend your DW?


Recommended Posts

Hey girlies!

 

I just got my first quote from a TA regarding the amount of money my guest will have to pay to attend my DW in Puerto Rico April 2009. Price only includes air & hotel. Hotels are not all inclusive!

 

1) RT airfare plus 6 nights hotel @ the resort we are getting married at(5 star resort) =$3,400/couple

 

2) RT airfare plus 3 night in San Juan & 3 nights at the resort=$2900/couple

 

I'm just wondering how it compares to other DW's?

 

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

I'm assuming you're staying at an all inclusive resort? If yes, that sounds like an appropriate price, if it's not all inclusive, that's A LOT!

 

We had our wedding at the Barcelo Palace (a 5 star beautiful resort), Riviera Maya June 2008- Our 7 nighters paid $1,300-1,400. 5 nights $1,100, 4 nights $450 etc... The price included resort, taxes, transportation to & from hotel/resort and airfare. The all inclusive food & alcohol (a lot of top shelf) was worth it. All guests booked their own air, but at the time it was $370-400 range for roundtrip (most guests flying from Pittsburgh).

Our guests thought the price was right, we had 60!

I think the pricing is pretty comparable to what we spent.

 

It would be about $1700 per person for the week. Ours paid $2100 but it was an AI. You guests can probably get away with spending $100 a day for food etc. but alcohol is very expensive.

I feel a little better now. I'm just sooo nervous to tell everyone what the cost is going to be!!!!crybaby2.gif
Not to mention my stepmom has been totally against this DW since the start! Ugh!

I too am just getting started with booking hotels/airfare....I had a mini freak out too about telling everyone the cost! But then my lovely FI reminded me the reasons why we decided on a DW! It is what WE want to do and it is OUR wedding! If some people decide not to come due to the cost of it all we understand and are certainly expecting a few of those...that is why we will be having an AHR too! Just remember this is your wedding!
