New and Overwhelmed!

Recommended Posts

Hello, just got engaged xmas day and my fiancee and are starting to plan for Jamaica, Feb/March 2011! Trying to figure out where to start...how do you give guests a years notice so they can save without a price, since prices don't come out till late spring for the next year? Any advice is much appreciated!!

Welcome to the forum! We have the same problem because we are getting married in Cabo June 2011. Luckily we are working with a wedding coordinator there. She agreed that this can be a problem when estimating costs. However, she estimated cost (for every vendor and site fee, etc) based on the increases from previous years...i.e. just a guess, but an educated guess. If you're working with a wedding planner, I suggest asking them what their experience with annual cost increases have been. If not, I would imagine there is a wedding coordinator or someone else at the hotel who you can ask. Sometimes I've found they are afraid to commit to a number, but if you just let them know you are simply looking for an estimate and will not hold them to anything. Just be sure to let your guests know that these rates are not guaranteed into the next year. Good luck!

Hi,

 

Congrats and welcome! I'm also in the same position trying to plan for a 2011 wedding. Haven't decided on a definite date or location, but leaning towards Costa Rica. Looking forward to learning with and from everyone else!

Congratulations on your Christmas engagement!!!

my suggestion would be to tell your guests when and where... and then give them an approximate cost. Then when it gets closer and real prices come out, send an update and booking instructions.
