$300 Deposit/person??

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I am wondering if it's normal to pay such a high deposit of $300 per person to our TA?! We have to initially book 10 or more. So right off the bat it is $3000 for deposits. If it turns out that only 9 can go we will loose $300. Keeping that in mind we have around 60 invitation we will be sending out.


I am so confused as to what to do. I anyone at all has and suggestions or advise it would be wonderful.


Thanks Ashley

That sounds normal. I'm assuming you're booking a package so you are probably paying between $100 and $200 per person each for the hotel and $100-$200 per person for the airfare.


When you break it out, it sounds better. If you have questions as to what the money is going for, ask your TA.


If you are worried about no-shows, start with your definites, family, BP, etc and see where you are. I mean you and your FI are 2, so you only need 8 more guests.

Mine is $150 a person as well. Keep in mind if it's 10 rooms booked or 10 people. Mine is 10 rooms in order to get the group rates.


We went after my family, his family, a bridesmaid and definites for our initial 10 rooms booked. But because we got that, they locked in the rate for everyone else’s cheaper rates.


I would stress to your family/friends if you don't get your 10 the prices will go up!!!!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
