How much are your guests paying?

Recommended Posts

My guests are flying in from many different cities, and they're free to stay at whatever hotel they like since my wedding is at a beach club, so costs will vary from person to person.  But here's an estimate:

 

  • round-trip airfare from NYC to Cancun is around $500 per person
  • hotel rooms in Tulum are $100 - $300 / night for two people
  • let's assume each guest stays for 5 nights and spends $50 - $100 / day on food and activities

 

So if the guests want to do it on a budget, they can come for less than $1000 per person; if they want to splurge, could be $1800+.

We are getting married at the El Dorado Royale (gourmet all inclusive) in Riviera Maya, Mexico and our guest cost breakdown is:

 

Flights ranged from $300 to $600 depending on when the guests purchased them and where they were flying from in the U.S.

 

For lowest category room (everyone in our group is staying in these rooms):

 

For 4 nights (majority of our guests are staying for nights):

1 person: $860 per person

2 people: $660 per person

We have guests flying in from all over, most flights are $400 - 500/person and we booked rooms at 2 different hotels.  The hotel where the wedding will be is 329/night and a second hotel is 159/night so people have the option to stay where they want and for however long they want to stay!

The majority of our guests will be flying in from either Boston/New York and Chicago. It looks like flights are around $450. We are waiting on the room block contact to come back but I think double occupancy at Now Sapphire (all-inclusive) will be about $250/night. It seems like most guests are going to be be staying four nights (Thur-Mon) so my best guess is about $1000 pp.

Our guests are paying just under $1500 all in for flight, taxes and 7 nights.  Most people have thought it is a good price for a 5 star but we have had one friend who made a point in telling us how he went to Mexico for around $1k last year on a last minute deal (I bit my tongue and didn't say yes for a 3 star you booked a week out - haha!)

We are getting married at The Royal (adult only), Playa del Carmen. Some of our guests are staying there and others are staying right next door at The Gran Porto (kid friendly)

 

Guest's staying at The Royal paid $2300.00 for 2 people. That incluces flight, hotel (AI) and transfers to and from the resort.

Guest's staying at The Gran Porto paid $1996.00 for 2 people. That incluces flight, hotel (AI) and transfers to and from the resort

 

Both of these are for 4 nights/5 days with an oceanview room. I think we got a good deal!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
