    Just trying to get a sense of averages and wondered what everyone else's group rate is/was. How much are your guests paying to attend your wedding and have you gotten any grief about it?

    I'll go first...my guests are paying approximately $1500 taxes in....5 star resort.

      Our wedding party is staying with us in a private Villa $836 for 4 nights and $300-$500 for flights. Other guests are staying in an All- Inclusive resort for $1500 for 7 nights flights included thru expedia. I haven't heard any complaining YET.... I can see how our wedding party can have a problem paying so much more than guests but we are taking care of a lot for them. So hopefully its a wash??

        Hi-- you're right. There are a bunch of threads and even a study about this on the board.

        Here are a few:

              Sounds about right for your pricing. Does Expedia include your transfers? That is VERY important.

                1500 sounds about right...mine are paying $1650 at the RIU in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. All-inclusive, 5 star resort, includes flights and transfers.

                We didn't really get any grief about pricing...but some guests were unable to attend because it was a bit steep for them...but we expected this to happen so no big deal.

                    Ours is all-inclusive at Dreams Punta Cana. For 7 nights incl airport xfers its $886 per person for 2 ppl in a deluxe room. Flights have been averaging about $400 per person. So, in total its been around $1200-$1300 per person.
                    Noone has complained about the cost and we specifically chose this resort for the lower cost. Those that can't afford it; just aren't coming.

                      My guests are paying $1428.00 pp (taxes included) to stay for one week at the Melia Caribe. Depending on which website you go to, it's a 4.5 to 5 star resort.

                      Originally I wanted to go to one of the Paradisus resorts but the quotes were $1800.00 - $2000.00 pp. So we chose the Melia (owned by the same company) because of the lower cost for our family and friends. And like sunsetbride1, those who can't afford it, won't be coming.
