Appropriate Cost for Guests
Posted 05 January 2010 - 11:22 PM
We're really trying to find something reasonable... but at the same time it's a wedding and we would like the experience to be beautiful. I guess there must be a compromise somewhere!!!

Honestly, we made the decision to pick something a bit cheaper than we would have for just the two of us out of courtesy to our guests. I figured not everyone would be willing to spend as much for our wedding as we would, you know? Plus this way we can easily afford to stay for an extra week after everyone else leaves!

Hey lp579...I'm considering Punta Cana and $1500 is the price range I'm looking at, too for the guests. Was $1500 flight included from Vancouver? Which resort did you go with? Was it 4 nights or 7 nights? Sorry for all the questions!

When FI and I went in 2007, it was about $900 pp flying from the bigger city. Sure, it saved money, but we had to pay gas, to leave the car parked a week, and drive 3 hours home after flying back! It was worth the couple extra hundred to fly from 5 minutes from my house.
ANYWAY, I'm rambling. We had 15 people sign up and come on the June trip! That was just for fun/vacation and that many people actually came along (many others were interested but things came up). I figured it if's for my wedding, even more people may find it worth their while!!! Everyone wished we had stayed longer for the last trip.
