Canadian Brides getting married in Mexico!
Posted 04 April 2010 - 11:59 PM
So far what I found is the big chain TA companies seem to charge the most... I did quite a bit of shopping around and where I found the cheapest deal to be is iTravel2000 groups and a small local agency in Edmonton called 'Travel With Us Inc.' which I went with because they are very attentive.
The most expensive I found was destinationweddings.com which charged on average $300 over a local agent (lost my $50 deposit on that one, oh well) and Uniglobe.
Our price from Edmonton to the Barcelo Maya Tropical in RM Mexico is $1458/pp including taxes/AI.
Hope this helps!

The prices were up and down a few times but our guests booked starting about eight months ahead up to about two months ahead.
I definitely recommend checking through WestJet Vacations (or find out about group rates at a specific resort then book flights on west jet) to see if they have any of the resorts you like in their packages. Oh yah and we had guests flying from Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver - just to mix it up a little bit

So excited to have a resort picked (again)! All I can say is thank god I started planning early so I had room for mistakes and rebookings.
Thanks for all your help and suggestions!
