Cost of Travel for Guests

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

My FI and I are getting some complaints about the cost of travel to our wedding. I was hoping you could let me know what range your travel packages are in.

 

We are considering 5 star resorts in Punta Cana-so although I appreciate hearing back from everyone, would really like to hear from other brides in the 4.5-5 star category.

 

Thanks ladies!

Hi Amelie-Mellow,

 

So far I am getting quotes for about $1700, but I'm hoping the price goes down to the $1500 - $1600 range. You don't have $1400 - $1700 in your poll. :)

the prices should go down. plus the price the bride/groom pay will always be higher than most guest because we tend to purchase a year in advance. I also noticed your wedding is 2012, you are getting quotes already or is this based on this year?

 

Best wishes in your planning.

Hi! Our resort is supposed to be 5 stars in Punta Cana. I put in $1700-$2000...it really depends on how many nights they're staying and what type of room. I wasn't sure if you were doing per person but that's how I broke it down. I didn't include airfare. For a week my FI and I are about $2000 per person in Royal Service. I found a great deal on Orbitz for the regular room and our travel agency honored it so his parents paid about $1000 per person. Normally it would have been around $1500. It's really hard to narrow down since there are so many factors involved. I hope this helps!

I'm hoping to be under $1500 per person. The cheaper the better of course, but I told the TAs I'm working with that $1500 is my absolute max for the guests. FI and I will ask to be upgraded and pay for it if they can't do it for free.

I see your looking to book now for 2012, i highly suggest holding off right now until you get about 6-9 months away and start looking at prices then. The company i work for has a travel agency apart of it and I can tell you for sure the prices are going to change from now until 2012.

 

I booked 8 months away and the price has gone up and down since we booked. It is now about the same price as when i booked, $1500.00 per person for the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana. Thats a group rate.

We are paying just under $1000 per person for 8 days including airfare. If your not set on the month trying pricing out a different month and the price can drop a lot.

depending on when our guests book.. they paid at all different scales.. but Beaches tends to be pretty expensive! We paid $4950 total for 9 nights. But some of our guests paid $1575 total for 3 nights because they booked early enough. It all depends.

 

above prices did not include airfare.

Our resort is a 5 star (Dreams La Romana) and we booked our wedding for the beginning of September because it was WAY cheaper than May-August!!! Our guests are paying about $950 for one week and about $1450 for 2 weeks (tax included)...

I had the same problem as you; I was in love with many resorts but my guests refused to pay more than $1000 for a week so I was feeling pretty stressed and down for a long time until I realized I could still have a wedding at a beautiful resort for cheap just by changing the month to September.

 

As the other ladies mentioned, the prices will change for sure by 2012 so I would suggest you wait some more; we booked our resort approx. 6-7 months in advance. :)

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
