Another Cad couple are also thinking Majestic Elegance Feb 2011! we're from Winnipeg! We are waiting for the 2011 group rates to come out to see if this will be feasible for our guests as well. Our TA said they should be out in the new year, maybe we will be there the same time!

That's awesome! I just got some quotes from Weddings By Oceans TA. The rates seem very high... I don't know if that is because it is too early or what the deal is.

For those of you who don't mind a little extra work, I suggest booking with WestJet Vacations groups department. I did it for our group and got really good rates for our wedding in June... or at least I think so. It means you have to follow up with your guests when it comes time to book but it saves all the money that is wasted on TA fees.

It will probably be in and around 2 grand for one week, which is how long our guests will stay, and we will stay for 2 to have our honeymoon as well.
We actually met a real nce TA at Sell Off Vacations in Wpg, who advised we wait until the new year so she can inquire as to what the group rates will be for Feb 2011. Most airline/vacation companies will offer a group discount rate for a min of 10 people, which we figure we certainly should have!
We are hoping it will come under 2 grand for the week. We know that may be pricy, but we don't want to sacrafice the location for the most important day of our lives to make it lighter on friends/family wallets. After all, they are getting a vacation out of it as well!

1500 from TO is nice, but the flight from Wpg to TO would prolly be like 400! lol so we wouldnt be savng much in the end! Damn flights within canada, whats up wth that!? Its so frickin expensive to fly within our own country?
Were you going to use a photographer? I was thinking of HDC Photography, they hae pretty good reviews on this site, and Arneaud is really friendly, he responded very promptly to my emails, and pricing is very reasonable!

I agree about WestJet vacations. Since this is a new service being offered by WestJet they are very competitevely priced, their taxes are almost 200$ less than what Signature/Air Canada/Sunwing/Sunquest are charging.

I'm going to try to get around to getting a review done, and hopefully a (very late!) planning thread (my laptop that has everything on it is currently in the shop! eek).
But for now I have a few pics to share:
