    I was nervous because I thought that was per couple and mine wasn't near that for a couple. I am getting quotes about 1,877 per person for 8 days.

      Well I haven't gotten any quotes but we expect our guests to pay from $900-1500 for a week of stay . . . that includes a flight estimate
      I think our price is low because we are traveling to jamaica in the off season July and the resort is new so they are offering better prices. . .
      Honestly, I wouldn't care if my guests complained about the price. They don't HAVE to come. I refuse to compromise on a location that we want based on someone else's expectations. To be frank, my fi and I won't be terribly disappointed if everyone doesn't show up . . . that's just part of having a destination wedding. actually, it's the whole point for us, we don't want a large guest list. .
      hope you get the prices you want. ..

        I decided to opt out of the 5 star resort because I wanted a good number of my friends to attend my wedding in Negril. So i found an all-inclusive 3 star resort that was $135 per night per person that has an amazing wedding views. This way their 3 night is under $500 and their plane ticket will range between $300-500 making their total roughly $800-$1200, depending on how many nights they stay.

        I took into consideration money is tight for a number of people so a cheaper hotel would be okay because they shouldnt be in their rooms the whole time anyways. Activities at many places are offered out side the hotel as well. And my guest are very happy to have a cheaper hotel so they can make the trip.

          Yup, per person...and that's tax included. From Ottawa we will be paying $1450 tax included in April.

            There's an option missing on the poll: between 1400 and 1700$.

            Our guests will be paying between 1400 and 1600$. Right now, the prices are around 1600$... we're hoping it'll go down a bit.
