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_

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
