      Hi Heather,


      I actually got a really good rate through bookit.com.  For a very upgraded room we were definitely under what other tour operators were offering.  I called their number directly after doing some research online and booked everything over the phone.  Fantastic customer service!  I would highly recommend them.  They are an American company, but do offer Canadian airlines also. 


      One reason booking through them worked for us, is that we are not getting a group rate through another provider.  Our guests are coming from Canada and the US, and I know that we will have enough people to qualify for a group rate leaving from Canada.  As such, everyone is responsible for booking their own vacation.  It definitely takes the pressure off of me and my fiance.  It puts the onus onto our guests.  They can also stay for as long, or as short as they like!  I have given them the information for the dates we will be traveling and what they do is now up to them!  I know this is not traditional for DWs, but it is what will work best for my FI and I, and our guests.


      If anyone has questions, I would be happy to answer!

      Sorry, we will NOT have enough people to qualify for a group booking or a group rate.  This makes the price substantially higher.


      I also think one of the reasons why the cost is so high for us from Toronto, is that there are other wedding parties flying out that same day.  The cost is almost 500$ more from Toronto than it is from other Canadian cities (weird!).

      Yep I know what you mean! But we were totally set on Antigua and it didn't matter.

      I know the other places are cheaper, but we are going to make a day trip over to Montserrat where my FI is from :)

      Last time we were there was 2005, so his family there has never met our kids!

      Killing 2 birds with 1 stone!


      I'm glad that you guys can make it there. I would've loved it, but even my FI didn't want to go back to Antigua for the wedding. We're on a tight budget and it would've been hard for his family in Antigua to come on the resort to attend the wedding anyways. So we decided to change. We were just at Jolly Beach this past September (2012) so we've promised we would go back to visit sometime after the wedding. But after the FI comes back to Hong Kong with me to meet my family. LOL


      this is great im from montserrat how did ur wedding go?

      The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.
