Help-Destination Wedding Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Ok so we have decided on a destination wedding.  However I am having a hard time trying to figure out what would be the cheapest location for us to get married out.  We have been getting a lot of flack of how expensive a destination wedding is going to be for our guest.  Therefore, I am trying to find a location that will inexpensive to travel to, and also have reasonable accomodations.  I want the hotel to be all inclusive, and want the price per person to be $700 is this possible?

I had a similar conversation with my mother about me being inconsiderate for wanting a destination wedding. But to answer your question I don't know how you feel about cruising. This is seems to be the least expensive option for my family and I. The cruise I chose prices begin at $637 for 5 days not including travel to the port. I hope this helps.msnwink.gif

Speak with a TA or too.  They should be able to help pinpoint the perfect place w/ the best budget option.  And...the wedding is about what you want, not your guests.  It would be nice to have everyone show up, but not everyone will.  However, it will be an amazing trip for you and the FI!

I can understand wanting it to be cheap for people to travel.. i had this disscussion as well because people were concerned but in the end me and my fiance made the decision to do what is right for us. After all people have to understand that this is a wedding not just a vacation. it is very easy anytime of year for people to book cheap 700-900 all inclusive vacations, but for a wedding we wanted something nicer and something you wouldnt just do as your annual vacay. We just had to realize and accept that not everyone would be able to make it. Those that love you and really want to be there will make it possible what ever the price. you have to realize that with most 700 all inclusives you getting a 2 or 3 star hotel.. which in mexico or the DR is not the greatest of hotels and is usually packed with young springbreaker types.

 

Not saying that you probably wont be able to find something nice for that range but it will be very difficult, hopefully you find something

We searched all of the travel sites and found which destination would have the cheapest flights. Since our families will come from Houston or New Orleans, Jamaica was the cheapest flights by far and that is how we chose that destination. Once we picked a country, I found an AI resort to match our needs and budget. Good luck! Anywhere will be amazing

I would say that probably isn't possible just because the cost of airline tickets has gone up significantly.  Alone, I've seen flight from 550-1100 for my destination wedding in Mexico.  I would say realisticly speaking the cost would be around $1100-$1600 per person including flight.

Thank you, ladies for all your feedback.  We are still trying to firgure everything out.   I originally thought about a cruise wedding because I thought it would be the cheapest.  A lot of people were like they dont like cruises, so I quickly changed it to a destination.  Will see how everything goes.

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
