Canadian Package Perks?

Recommended Posts

@maredith get in touch with Wright Travel Agency , there are many good reviews about them on this site. I recently got in touch with them, and I am glad I did. Babs is my TA, and she ROCKS !! I have a bad experience with another company, and she has came right in and made everything right. Here is the link, check them out http://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ .

Wright it awesome for American brides but Canadian packages are completely different.

 

In Canada it's important to have a Canadian TA who has relationships with the tour operators since flight,hotel and transfers are included and priced differently than US

Hey ladies, who are your TAs? I'm on the lookout for one!

 

Where abouts are you? I've gotten recommendations for Sandy at Jubilee Travel in Saskatoon from locals, and Laurie Lee for Calgary from other brides on here.

@@tygrrlily I like that idea, making everyone's rate lower. I wonder if I could give the travel agent a list of people we'd like any credits to be distributed amongst?

 

Yes, you should be able to!  We chose a hotel that was more expensive, so this was something we wanted to do. We told our guests about it already and adding it to our "booking" page as an incentive to get people to book with our group

Thanks for the rec! I've considered it, as I've read some of the Canadian brides have used them

We booked with Flight Centre they have specialized locations that deal directly with weddings. They are super amazing and worked within our price range to get our best possible rate. We booked Dreams Tulum April 2015 - VERY HAPPY with our choice and every 6th room booked we get free meaning the price of the room for the week goes toward whatever we want. The Palace resorts were another option that give great perks depending on the size of your wedding we are only having 35-40 people and the Palace resorts are on the higher end of our budget in which we wanted our guests to pay. The ladies at Flight Centre were able to break down the perks each resort was giving it was great. They also counter offered flights between West Jet & Air Transat as West Jet would not gaurantee a direct flight for us from Vancouver but Air Transat would. We booked our air with Air Transat as they took West Jets lower price, they fly to Cancun more then West Jet from Vancouver and their customer service is awesome!!! Hope that helps :)

We get a free passenger every 16 (max 3) so we used it for my FI sister who is a single mom paying for her son as well. And we used to fly in our photographer then one for us. We are with air Canada vacations

 

We are getting married on the same date - but I am marrying at the Grand Sirenis. I am also using Air Canada and was to leave January 18, but they cancelled our flight. Awaiting what they are changing us too. Are you running into this problem??

 

 

I get the same perks as dreamteam17, and then at our resort if you have 10 double bookings you get the base wedding package free. Which I am doing, then doing all the upgrades I want!!!

Lucky you! I heard great things about them but could NEVER get a call back. Even when she said she would, she wouldn't. So I finally had to find someone else!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
