It really worked out well this way - those that wanted to spend money did & those on a budget were happy too.
    You know that's a fantastic idea!! I never thought the guests could just plan their own thing. In fact, I spoke with one of my stepbrothers yesterday and I was trying to breakdown costs and what not, and he's like "Hey Sam Greg (his partner) and I are staying at the Marriott & we booked our flights on Continental ...." I guess I should give my guests more credit!!

      I choose a less exspence AI hotel on the south side of p.v to try and keep the cost down!!! that was one of the main things for me
      for air and hotel its about 800 per couple ( if the damn taxes dont go up to much !!)for 7 days. Its a hotel we have stayed at 2 times and will be staying there again in oct of this year so we know exactly what to exspect
      I have told most of the guests that its not really fancy but Breakfast is amazing and the drinks are strong and you cant beet the location !!!

        Oh my goodness.. For all of those needing to feel better about themselves, I have just the response..

        My guests are paying approx $2400 PER person to come to our wedding, so just under $5000 a couple! Everyone is flying out of Western Canada and we are going to the Dreams Resort in Huatulco (its opening Nov 200. The reason its so expensive is not only b/c its a dreams resort, and a new one at that, but also because Huatulco is JUST starting to become a popular destination (still not that many flighst there, and its the one place that its cheaper to go to from canada than the US!) and the kicker is because we are going the week after christmas, Dec 25th to Jan 1, 2010. We have given everyone a year and a half notice though and honestly have not had all that many people comment on the pricing. Everyone knew it would be pricey because the time of year we were going- and we picked that time of year to accommadate our teacher friends, students (cousins, family etc) and people who dont get much vacation time from work-since most people get that week off b/c of xmas and new years.

        Hopefully that makes everyone feel better! LOL. But in all honesty, we originally thought we would have 80-120 people join us, and we still think we will get that!! YAY!

                  I originally wanted to get married in Costa Rica at Paradisus Playa Conchal - but with AI prices around $3000, FI nixed that. Hehe. I would have been happy just eloping and not worrying about other people, but hey, Im not the only one getting married right?

                  We ended up choosing RIU Palace Tropical Bay in Negril, Jamaica. We got a pretty decent group rate. Our guests are paying $1850 + cancellation/medical. FI and I are staying for 2 weeks and our trip is $2700. We'll be flying out of Toronto.

                  Most of my invited guests wont be able to attend and we knew that when we decided to do the DW thing. Its what we want, not what others want! We've booked 10 so far, wedding is in April 2009. Anyone else that books is just a bonus.

                      I am getting married at The Dreams Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta and for:

                      4 nights plus airfare all-inclusive my guests are paying approx. $900
                      which I thought wasn't bad at all.

                      The resort is $108 per person all-inclusive and airfare is around $300-$500 from all over the states.
