I've been getting quotes from my TA and they seem a bit expensive! 800 pp for 3 days + flight to either Jamaica or DR... Does that sound high?!!!! (Family is going to fly from ATL/Clev)

Ya, unfortunately you don't get the best deal if you go for less than 7 days. It works out being a better bang for your buck if you do the full week.

@perianjay it goes to about $1700 pp without airfare at that point... Ughhh I think that sounds crazy expensive, but then again it's only supposed to be close family so maybe it'll deter the extras

Oh wow! What time of the year/resorts are you looking at? My guests aren't paying that far off ($1663 per person).

When I first started I was all over the place with destinations and resorts. I found Jamaica to be a bit on the pricier side, but Mexico seemed to be the best option for what I wanted.

The hard rock (punta Cana) and the moon palace resort in Jamaica that has yet to open... Those are the only 2 that I've gotten quotes for so at first I thought, ehhh that's not bad, but when I get on here and see the price differences it makes me second guess it @perianjay
And it's near the end of May.... Doors the price your guests have to pay include airfare/7days? @perianjay

@Cablelove11 My wedding is December 10-17 and the quote is currently $1660, but it's a year early and there's a one time price drop gaurantee.. My TA said it will drop for sure.

And ya.. I think $1700 is a tad bit high for May because that is OFF season in the caribbean.

Yeah those quotes are a little expensive {in my opinion} for only three nights.  However considering the locations, that may be the going rate.  We originally looked at Punta Cana and Jamaica but due to nigher rates, we switched to Mexico.  We were quoted something similar for a resort in Punta Cana for three nights.  Our guests are paying ~$850 for 4 nights and airfare {booked separately} to attend our wedding.  

 

If your heart is set on Punta Cana and Jamaica reach out to other TAs who specialize in those areas.  Some have a "relationship" with different resorts which could result in lower rates.

Canadians get better packaged deals. So would make a difference if you are comparing prices of USA vs Canadian.

@AyeWatSoon where are most of your guests flying from? That rate is awesome! It's all inclusive? How are the wedding pckgs at your resort? I may have to keep reaching out to see if I can get a better rate. The TA that I'm working with now just gave me that feeling (you know the one!) and I just knew she'd be able to find me something. @calgarybride2015 haha that sucks for me I guess I
