    After reading this post:

    http://bestdestinati....0-4#post494719

    The crazy statistican came out in me, and I didn't want to highjack the post with this request but I am curious to know this info - i think it could be a neat study (i am a closet geek of a statistican).

    I read everyone's comments and am curious about the cost of a DW and it's correlation with the number of guests that attend - I ask this because as brides we worry that we are asking too much of our friends and family to spend for a DW - but I wonder if it matters.

    I am curious to know the following (fill in the blanks):

    _________ $ for 7 nights occupancy (double) - cheapest room option possible at your resort (inc airfare and taxes)
    _________ # of invites sent
    _________ # of guests attending
    _________ Resort Name
    _________ # of stars of resort


    ME:

    $1415 $ for 7 nights occupancy (double) - cheapest room option possible at your resort (inc airfare and taxes)
    144 # of invites sent
    77 # of guests attending
    Barcelo Marina Palace, Varadero Cuba Resort Name
    4.5 # of stars of resort


    RESULTS as per ~*petals*~ advice!


    So I noticed someone looking to see what the ratio's were for guests attending a DW and the number of invites sent, when I realized that Results of my poll hadn't been posted...

    Without further ado... this is pretty neat!!!

    ALL $AMOUNTS ARE FOR PER PERSON BASED ON DOUBLE OCCUPANCY AIRFARE AND ROOM INCLUDED AT ALL INCLUSIVE RESORTS!

    The average cost to guests attending a DW is
    $1765
    The median cost is very close as well
    $1700


    The average number of invites sent to invite guests to a DW is
    73 Invitations


    The average DW has
    34 guests in attendance


    The median for attendance is slightly lower
    29 guests in attendance


    I think think this is really cool - regarding the number of guests attending versus the number of invites sent....
    55% of people invited to a DW actually GO!


    WOWZERS!

    Thanks for participating!

      Fun survey, although my answers are kinda boring due to my limited guest list(since I stopped inviting people when I found out our wedding party couldn't come)

      1500$, 1600$ & 1900$ (from Ottawa, Halifax and Winnipeg respectively) for 7 nights occupancy (double) - cheapest room option possible at your resort (inc airfare and taxes)
      12 (immediate family + BM / MOH and their spouses)# of invites sent
      8 (immediate family only)# of guests attending
      Dreams Tulum Resort Name
      5 # of stars of resort

      *those who didn't come, it had nothing to do with the cost of the resort (they are teachers who could only go away during school breaks or for a weekend, so I guess in that sense it's indirectly a money thing because it's not worth it cost wise to go down south for 2 days)

                My #'s are a little skewed as our hotel is not finished. Many of our guests will not be paying for hotel as we have booked our residences for the week.

                    We didn't do a room block so our guests' costs were all different.

                    Yari - it's only $553 for 7 nights including air?? That's crazy cheap! Is that a TA rate or how the heck did you work that out?
