Not too sure where they haven't booked their flight yet. Who did you book with? We got a price of 1350$ tax and service fees included with Transat. Booked with a family member that is a TA. Are you bringing your own decorations for the reception? I was thinking of doing it but I'm not too sure. And we also wanted to give everyone a bottle of rum as a party favor, probably going to buy it there. Are you getting a photographer from Montreal? Or the one that the hotel offers? I'm not sure what I want to do. Happy planning!
I'm actually getting married May 8th so we are flying out on May 4th. I originally reserved with Air transat flying out on the Sunday as it was $100 cheaper and we had a week to book the seats but funny enough they sold out two days later even though the wedding is a year away! so air Canada matched the price who were originally $1459 but leaving on the sat, which we didn't mind too much bc that would give everybody an extra day to relax when they got home before they started work again. i think if the price goes down 60 days before the departure date you can renegotiate the price.
As for the decorations i'm still up in the air, i'm having my reception at the Piscis and i originally wanted to bring some kind of lighting like lanterns but my TA was actually there last week on vacation and she said that the piscis is actually quote big and it would take a lot to decorate it. My TA said that they do a really good job of decorating so don't go through all the stress and hassle of bringing it on the plane. So in other words i still have no idea and am really confused of center piece too. i asked the wc and she said that if i send her a photo she can provide me with a quote but i still have no idea. Do you have any ideas? For some reason i'm stressing about them.
As for the rum would definitely wait till you are there, last time i was in DR a bottle of rum was $3.
I'm getting the photographer from the resort as you still have to pay $600 to bring your own photographer and from what i heard from people who have been married there their photo's were great.
