Should I wait to book until air and resort can be booked together?

Recommended Posts

I think I'm feeling the way everyone else is- I'm just so excited to get going that it's hard to wait! But...I'm happy to hear that it's possible to book your wedding ceremony date without doing air and hotel as well, I think that's what I'm most worried about.

 

Marie- I can't believe you have 25 confirmed guests- that is awesome for so far out from the date! I definitely have no idea who will actually venture to Jamaica for our wedding, I guess I'll just turn it in to a fun guessing game...

I used a TA for my hotel accomodations in Jamaica. I did not put together a package because in my group there are people who I know have a ton of miles and will use their miles for the airfare. There are quite a few in my group who will only travel first class and will want to make their own arrangements. Air Jamaica stopped flying from LA, ( I am devastated!) so there are lots of airlines to choose from and the prices are all comparable. The big difference is schedule. Additionally since I started planning, airfare has went down. My point in saying all this is that I think you have to look at your guests and their requirements to help you decide whether to book everything as a package.

There was another thread similar to this - I'm using a TA for my Hotel booking to get the better rates and I have rooms blocked. She will help my guests get airfare if they want, or they can do their own if they want - it's totally up to the guest preference. Personally I would rather let someone else do all of the work! With the TA the room rate for the blocked rooms is also guaranteed, so it can't go up, but if it goes down we can get the better rate.

 

Marie - I'm like you - I want to do everything NOW : ) I almost wish it was this year and not next year!

I don't know a whole lot about booking flights and stuff so I might be using the wrong terminology but our TA bought some sort of tickets that allow us to get a lower price within a certain period of time if the rates go down. It was something like bulk air or contract air maybehuh.gif I don't know if that helps or not but you might ask the TA's you talk to :-)

 

Good luck!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
