    Ooh the next person who asks me "why aren't you having it in a school holiday" will be shouted at!, because those of us who don't have kids don't want to pay a fortune for flights!!!M

        Please. I have a child in school and mine is not around when the kids are off. This is about what is the most economical for us. But then again my son will be the only kid invited. lol.

          Can I add mine to the list? After booking our venue (which is off-resort in Punta Cana) I was telling my aunt and cousin about our plans so far and the resorts we were deciding between. They were not too happy with the price ranges we told them we were expecting. The next day my aunt sends me an email with a link to a groupon for a resort in the Dominican. Um, thank you, even though that resort is not even in the same city as my venue. She also sent me a link to a "love boat" cruise line where you can get married by the ship's captain. Thank for trying to plan my wedding for me...?

           

          Same cousin freaked out when I told her we were expecting the resort prices to be $1500 per person. She said the price was too high and that she would book on her own, because she was assuming that our wedding costs were included in the prices and that's why they were so high for guests. Yes, you're right, I'm trying to get my guests to pay for my wedding... *eye roll*

           

          Another cousin said to my mom, "I hope your meal at the wedding is included so you don't have to pay for it." What?! I don't even know what to think of that question. 

           

          It's true though, a lot of people's rudeness has to do with money.

            I am a teacher and I'm not even planning my for a holiday -- its bumps the prices up like crazy and it means the resorts could be full of children...no thanks, my vacation (wedding, no less) is just that a vacation!

              I don't think $1500 pp is too high at all - people need to recognize that a 3 star resort that you get for a great deal (ie under $1k pp) might be great for spring break or a last minute trip but it is not necessarily the ideal location for a wedding!

                Lol. The audacity of ur aunt to give u unsolicited options for ur wedding. Hahaa. Lately I've been getting a lot of calls, emails, and text messages from friends and relatives complaining about the price of flights. Like...I have the secret magic phone # to call the airlines and have them lower the prices. Mind you, we are still 6 months out from the wedding. I don't know how many times I've had to say, "setup an alert on Kayak, and prices typically go to standard fare prices about 3 months out for the Carribbean". And I also have folks complaining about possibly having to take a flight with a layover to keep it affordable. Imean really. Is a 90 min layover that terribly hard if you want to save $ and see us married and enjoy a great vacay?!!

                  Exactly! I think people see all the groupon deals for $500 for a resort stay or all the last minute deal and are coming to expect it as the regular price. My one cousin (the one complaining about the price) was saying that she's stayed at resorts with her husband for $1500 total the two of them. I just wanted to say, "what kind of resort are you staying at that's THAT cheap, and do you really think that's where I want to spend my wedding week?!"

                    Hahaha, yeah, and it wasn't like I was asking for their opinions on the resorts. All I said was we're still deciding between this one and that one. Well that's an open enough opportunity for my aunt apparently. I couldn't believe it when I got the emails. My response was, "Thank you, I'll keep that in mind." lol

                      Exactly!  I also think some people don't realize that when you are planning a wedding you can't wait to do a better deal last minute because there might not be sufficient room on the flight over or at the resort.  So yes, prices may get cheaper closer to the date but if you want a guarantee that you will definitely have a seat on the plane and room at the resort than you best book with our group!
