Hey,

 

Just wondering how you're informing your guests of the price of your trip.  I feel awkward announcing it on our website, but I think it might be worse for them to call the travel agent then decide they can't go... any tips?

Why feel akward? People need to know the cost if they plan on booking and joining you on your special day! It would of course not be appropriate to have on your invitation, but your website is the perfect place to detail pricing!

I think the website is the perfect place for it. I think people just want to know the hard facts as cost literally means everything for a DW IMO and that may possibly be the first question they ask/info they look for. Don't feel awkward everyone does it :)

I put it on the website and it's also on our booking link (with more details such as leaving from other cities in the country) I included the prices of only our city but only because most, if not all, of our guests are leaving from the same place

How do you include airfare in the pricing you post when that changes daily? Also did everyone put money down to hold a certain amount of rooms at the group rate?

The travel agent says it is refundable when everyone puts there deposits down and I will get the difference back for whatever rooms were held and not booked. They said if I did not put the group deposit down then I should not quote the rate because it could change.

It's all included in Canada. That's probably the difference.

I had to pay a deposit to hold 15 rooms/30 seats on plane but it was non refundable if we chose to cancel. When our guests pay theirs to hold the price we secured them with our deposits they are also non refundable.

That is awesome I wish it was combinable here through the travel agent we couldn't reserve the airfare unfortunately in less we paid the full amount for everyone even then I don't think it was an option. Airfare won't be out for another year for us so I'm not sure the pricing. I am nervous Bc we are getting married on a holiday weekend so prices will probably be high.

Canada is so different. We get hotel, airfare, and transfers in our cost

I wouldn't just because that's why you may get a TA plus prices vary.
Good Luck :)
