TO brides arranging hotel pre departure for guests?

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies (and gents)

 

Just wondering if any of you brides are trying to arrange a hotel pre departure out of TO? I am trying to arrange park and fly for guests and I am just wondering if anyone was able to get a group rate? How many people did you have to have for a group rate?

 

Thanks!

Im not sure what the group rate is but I know there are coupons on the Park n Fly website that we are using. We are also encouraging people to park their cars at FI's family house and we are arranging a limo to come take them to the airport. The limo is way cheaper than parknfly so for us this works out well. There are a lot of airport limo and cab services that have reasonable prices in TO.

My travel agent arranged for a group rate at the Double Tree. I think most of my guest will take a shuttle into TO the night before; and some are flying into TO the day before as well.Did you ask your travel agent about possibly getting a group rate?

That was where I was trying to book but they wont give us a group rate because we have under 10 room. Do you mind me asking how much you are paying? My rate was quoted at $141.

I've heard of people getting rates with hotels (I think the Holiday Inn is one of them) where they can stay one night (either coming or going) at the hotel and park their car there for the entire week. But I'm not sure on the exact details...sorry I couldn't be more help!

All I can say is get your TA on board to help you shop around. There are a ton of hotels in the area...you should be able to find a good price somewhere.

 

As a side note...if you are departing the airport only one (maybe it's two!) taxi services have the contract to take people from the airport and they charge you $20 more than a regular cab. We always go to the arrivals doors & call our own cab to come there & get us! I know...sneaky, sneaky!! But hey...I'd rather 20 bucks in my pocket instead of theirs!!

For the wedding we are hiring a limo service though!

My guests are booked at courtyard mariott for $99.00 and that includes our parking (for the week). Ours was a bit more $159 as we are gonna be away the second week. My travel agent arranged this for us.
Even with the stay over in Toronto we still need to be at the airport for around 4am. Yikess....that is an early start to the day!!!

As most of our guests flying out of TO will need to stay near the airport the night before we too are looking at hotels. Usually you will get a group rate with 10 rooms. Try the Econolodge Inn at the Airport I think their rate is 114.00 per room plus your guests can park their cars for the week. I spoke to Ceaser at Groups. Mention a destination wedding!! Hope this helps! Good Luck with this - share any good rates you get and I'll do the same!

Hey Chicklet & Christenew!!! I just realized we are bride twins (or triplets I guess!!) Although I'm a DR bride! When do you both fly out?

 

Also, on this topic - everyone might want to look into the Airport Sheraton...it's attached to Terminal 3. It might be a bit pricier, but for those who are starwood members you might get a bit of a deal, plus some of you might be willing to pay for the convenience!! But I'm not sure how parking works there.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
