Need travel agent help for aruba!!!
Posted 07 June 2010 - 09:09 PM
I'm planning my wedding for October 2011 and have been working directy with the hotel, the Westin. I think their prices are a bit high. I had a friend get married their on May 6th and her guests paid $159 per room and got upgrades. I know my wedding is 15 months away and prices do go up but October is not the high season and they want $179 per room. I know it's not that expensive, but I know my guests don't want to pay that. I thought I'd get the rooms for around $149. I will have at least 10-15 rooms and about 30-35 people at the wedding but I don't think they are willing to negotiate on the room prices. Is there a travel agent out there that can negotiate a better price and also get a group rate for airfare from Boston?
HELP! I thought I was going to book my wedding today and this is a deal breaker for me. I don't want to have to start all over.
Any help would be appreciated.

FYI, I considered the Westin for my wedding (May 2010) and was given a $169/night price for the group. So the prices are going up slightly but you won't have to worry about that once you sign the contract for a specific price for your group rate.

It won’t hurt if you contact a few travel agents and see what they say. Make sure you get them to give you a group discount too. My TA got my family a group discount and there were only 6 of us that booked together. If you want her contact info just PM me, but I think you should definitely check out a few TA’s and see what kind of prices you can get before you start searching again.
I love being a Mrs.!

We're getting married in August, and I think the Westin offered us a group rate of $169, my challenge is grouping the room rate along with flights, so I'm pretty much depending on travel agents to get me a deal, and yes, I am having a couple of travel agents work on it.
