$Cost of DW - Request for info from all brides - mini study

Recommended Posts

After reading this post:

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!!! drum.gif

 

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?
