Package price???

Recommended Posts

I am not sure where I should have started this thread.... But anyways my question is:

 

How much did your guests pay to come to your wedding, and for how many nightshuh.gif

We were originally thinking that it would be about 1000.00 per person for 4 nights, and my travel agent just called and told me that the rates right now are between 1250.00 and 1305.00 for four nights at EDR. This scares me! I wasn't expecting this, and we are already in the planning process ( and put the deposit down) for January 19th. I think this is a lot to ask my siblings and even my wedding party to pay to come to my wedding.... especially for only 4 nights! I was just wondering if this is pretty typical, or low, or really highhuh.gif!!!?

Thanks-

For January I think it's pretty typical. January-March are typically expensive in the RM.

Our location is in Jamaica...BUT for 3 nights (which is what most of our guests are doing) it's $960/couple in the standard room and airfare is approximately $450 per person - so that's $930pp. I have other friends who are staying 5 nights and with airfare they are paying $2500-ish (per couple) - $1250pp.

It seems like it would be fairly typical. That is a popular time of year for that part of the country. Maybe somehow you guys can get a good deal on a flight to help bring the cost down??

I guess since it is AI... I just know our guests are going to flip!

Our air is already at 350.00 per person for a direct flight.... and I think coming from Minnesota that is about as good as it is going to get. I really just don't get it though since it was 986.00 per person when I looked last fall for the same date.

Am I slow when it comes to other people's destination weddings?! lol. When my cousin sent us an invite, the price tag on the trip was $2500 to El Dorado Royale, and I didn't think twice! I thought that was a pretty good price considering almost everything is included! Her "wedding" (it was cancelled but we all still went!) was in March and we traveled from Canada. I think that's a pretty good price. When people think about what they would normally pay for a vacation with food and drinks and some activities - that's a pretty good price in comparison!

No, no... $2500 per person! It hurt a bit, but it was a fun trip! That makes your quoted price look good though, doesn't it?!

Edited to add: It was the cost for the flights from Canada that really hurt us though, I don't remember how much the breakdown was (flights, room etc), but I do remember the flights being pretty high.

I've been quoted $2100 for the standard room for 7 nights. coming from Calgary/Edmonton. includes everything (even taxes). But that was is for May

It sounds to me like the pricing is about right from what I have been quoted.

But don't forget - you are getting a great resort. all other resorts, IMO that were close in quality to it in the area were much more expensive (ie at least $2500_

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
