    Hi I was wondering if you could offer any suggestions for a small hotel that can offer a great venue for a destination wedding ?

      Are any of you getting good group discounts or reduced rates for having a large group book? I haven't been offered any by my travel agent and now am wondering if I should have all my guests book through a different TA that can offer some sort of large group special (or even get my room discounted?)

        If you are NOT going to receive any perks for booking as a group than don't bother with the stress of it all. However, you SHOULD be getting some deals. Definitely! To count as a group you need ten people and that alone should get you better rates. With our tour company... the 21st person was free... which can be applied to anyone (of course we are taking the $$).... then after that the 42nd person is free! So I am really hoping for that. We are currently at 34 (the 4 others that make 38 are kids and don't count). In addition... I do believe we will be upgraded to a suite. My TA is working on that.

        Fight for deals / perks if you are going to book as a group. Originally to get the deals we got, we all had to fly out of the same city, but we are spread out all over the country. My TA worked real hard to have all the cities included so we can take advantage of the 21st free trip incentive. When you do the math... our group of 38 people consists of $60,000 +++ to the airline and hotel! Bringing in that kind of cash better get me something, LOL

          Do you have Air Transat or Nolitours in your area? We got some great deals with our rep from there. Got a discounted group rate for all inclusive air/hotel package, every 16th person is free AND>>>they now offer wedding packages at select hotels at a discounted rate! Worth looking into! Hope this helps

              Hi All!
              I just got engaged in May & am getting married in December of 2010. People (future mother in law) keep saying we're crazy for waiting so long to do a DW, but I'm from Minnesota and we need to get away from the cold in the winter
              Any advice on responses to these opinions??

                  We got the same reactions about our decision. You know what though, it's YOUR day and you have to celebrate it how YOU want. Accommodate the people that mean the most and that's it. Do it for you. My mom probably won't be at my wedding because she can't afford to go, but it's what fiance and I want so that's what we are going to do. At least you are considering their opinions- you could just elope!

                      I don't know... she has 13 months to save up... I could not get married without my mom, unless it really was an elopement that included only myself and my fiancĀ©e.
