    I'm looking for quotes right now for a June 2010 wedding. I've gotten quotes from $1900 - $2150 for the Riu Palace in Los Cabos from Toronto. This is higher than I expected, but we're also looking at passing on the savings of the "16th person free" to our guests. We don't know if we should wait and see if the prices drop.

      Congrats, and welcome. I would suggest Cuba to you since you are Canadian. There should be no problem finding something less than $1500.00 We are going and our 1 week guests are paying just over $1000.00 and we are going for 2 weeks and paying just over $1300.00 per person. Time of year will also greatly affect the price. To keep prices at their lowest I suugest you go in one of the off seasons. That will keep the resort cost down as flight hardly ever changes. The Dominican is also cheaper. These places tend to be cheaper for us because the flight is a little shorter. I have found that the longer the flight the more the package tends to cost. Good Luck I hope you find the place of your dreams.

        Our guests are paying about $1000 pp for 5 nights. This includes all alcohol and most food. We figure airfare for most people will be $400 average since most are on the west coast.

        We definitely considered our guests costs but we also had to take into consideration the wedding location. We didn't want to get married at a big AI and we also wanted to hotel to be more intimate so our group could all hang out together.

        If you're not as concerned about cost of the wedding for you two, you might consider an AI that is reasonable and have the wedding at a villa. However, so many AIs are really great locations and offer great wedding packages.

        Good luck!

          Our guests are paying $764/pp for 4 nights. The airfare right now is $400 so we are waiting on that to drop before we tell people to start booking their flights. We travel a lot and have noticed that they usually start discounting the air fare abour 2-3 months out from travel dates. So, I think it will end up costing everyone about 1,200/pp for 4 nights. Thats $291/pp per night which includes EVERYTHING. I think that is a pretty good deal.

            For an 8 day cruise from NYC to Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and Grand Turk, our guests are paying from $1200-$1500 depending on the cabin they choose. This includes all taxes, port charges, travel insurance and gratuities.

              I have a timeshare at Sandos in Playa Del Carmen. They are allowing me to book multiple weeks at once. The rooms usually cost $300 per night but my guests are paying $150.00 per person for the rooms for 7 nights pluss $55 a day for all you can eat and drink. The plane tickets are around $300 so each guests total is $850 for the whole week including flight. My timeshare is insured and the only reason I got it was for the wedding. We are gonna sell it after our first anniversary.

                  We are looking at the Los Cabos but for Oct or Nov 2010, if we decide our guest may pay $700-$850 pp for air and hotel(AI) It will be more cost effective for everyone including my FI and I.

                    We decided on going to Punta Cana in April 2010 becuase it is definatly cheaper than other islands..my sister is my Travel Agent and found Grand Paradise Bavaro for $1,147 taxes in all inclusive, 7 nights, flight with Sunquest and hotel transfers which is an amazing price..I was so happy we totally jumped on it plus for every 8th guest booked 1 goes free so my fiance and I are going free and we were thinking of auctioning off the other free trips at our Stag & Doe...but definatly look into Dominican...Bavaro beach is the most beautiful beach and the price is definatly right! Hope our info helps you out hun!

                      Our average guest is paying $1,150 for 4 nights or $1,700 for 7 nights. This includes airfare from the U.S. and their stay at an all-inclusive.
