    Hi everyone

     

    Just got engaged before Christmas and we have always wanted to have a DW!

     

    We want an amazing resort but affordable for our guests. Airfare + Resort + Taxes = $1000-1200 pp

     

    Any help would be great!

     

    Thank you so much

     

    Heather

      Hey Heather, Congrats on the engagement! I am from Sudbury,Ontario, and my budget for guests was about the same as yours! We decided on the RUI Ocho Rios. We are paying 1299 tax in for flight, transfers, transportation from the airport to the resort and of course it's an all inclusive resort. My travel agent is in Welland, Ontario and of course I'm in Sudbury. We have only talked on the phone and exchanged emails and so far so good! If you need any more information pm me, and good luck! :)

          Congrats on your engagements. I'm from Toronto, ON and I'm having my destination wedding in Riviera Maya at Gran Bahia Principe and my travel agent quoted me $1103pp for double room for next November. I went with Destinationweddings.com and they assigned me a travel agent who's based in Kitchener. Happy planning!

              . I too am a newly engaged lucky lady from Ontario. We have not picked a resort either and have a budget for each guest to be max 1300 dollars. We are wanting our resort to be in the cancun area. We are still in the early planning stages. We are going to cancun this February to look at some resorts :) Wedding is in February 2014

                  Do the travel agents specialize in booking destination weddings?

                    I went to Flight Centre and spoke with someone from Sunwing as well, but they were not very helpful. I ended up going with the travel agent now, and she's amazing. She's been handling all the guests bookings for me so I don't have to worry about that, and she helped me negotiate my rate. So travel agent, I would say, comes highly recommended. I think the travel agents from BDW (Wrights Travel) would probably be pretty dependable as well, and probably know really well what they're doing.

                      Thanks! We are very excited! My travel agent specializes in destination weddings! She's been doing DW's for 28 years!
