Hey

I am in Toronto and am trying to plan a DW. My guests budgets are under 1000. Any reccomendations for all inclusive places? I am thinking Ciba or Mexico?

You are probably looking for a 4 star resort.  Try the RIU resort chain.  They have 3-5+ star resorts.  I've stayed at a bunch of their 5 star and always had a great time.  Some of their properties have more than one hotel on site so guests can stay at whichever one suits their budget if you prefer to go to a more expensive one!  Good luck!

Hmm that's a tough one. I had trouble finding anything in that range. You'll want off season for sure and east coast. DR?

I'd say Dominican or Cuba... But, its gonna be tough - I'd get a few travel agents working on it and see what they can find!  We wanted to go cheaply, and we are going to Dominican for $1400.  Good luck!

Hi Lyssa,

 

I forgot to mention this, I went to Marlin Travel (usually found in Walmart).  They had a wedding specialist that I got connected with.  When you get a group rate it is for 10 or more guests.  Anyone who books this rate is guaranteed a one time price adjustment if the price goes up until 60 days before departure, which is a great bonus because they usually do go down $50-$200 dollars.  Another awesome thing about Marlin is that you can use Airmiles.  You can cash in 950 points for $100 dollars off your trip.  So there are a few ways to bring the cost down.  I had two different locations (Orangeville and Oakville) get group pricing for me for 4 different resorts and then picked the best one.  So we are going to Majestic Elegance May 5th-12th for $1380, which is amazing for this resort!  If you need any contacts the lady I am working with is amazing! So let me know :)

To add to your choices, Air Canada has something along the same lines as Marlin Travel.  Only thing is you don't get to work with a travel agent, only the group person.  They have thins promotion going on.  http://www.aircanadavacations.com/media/PDF/6646_Groups%20Terms%20&%20Conditions_EN_HR.pdf

 

I know the Bahia Principe Coba in Mexico is less than 1300$ and it's not the cheapest resort so there might be something along those lines for you.  

 

And defintely book off season, thats the biggest price changer I find.

 

Good luck!

I would also like to know more about this? Is it Marlin Travel that  guarantees the price drop? We booked our vacation with Sunquest and were told they have a similar price drop guarantee. Has anyone else had any difficulties with this?

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
