Costs Pp Of Destination Wedding

Recommended Posts

Thank you ladies! I have been getting quotes from Sunwing and other companies like it....I really am not finding any difference in the prices except that, like you said, the n'th passenger goes free. That is maybe $100 off per person. We're looking at a group of 30 (plus us)

 

Hi Petra, if you are really organized and determined you can build your own package. Contact the hotel directly and coordinate your flights.

Dimps - did you do this? How did it work out for you? I just contacted the hotel to see what the prices would be.. but I'm afraid the flight costs would be too much coming from Toronto!

You need to work with a TA not just direct to that tour operator, it's your best bet on getting added perks at your resort and the best pricing.

Hi there, do you have any suggestions or do you suggest using our local travel agent?

$100 off is a $100, better than nothing IMO. At the start we were about $100 less but as time went on and until our flight and resort sold out it was close to $500 less we paid.

 

I also agree go to a TA not just the airline. They can work better deals, etc. Local or not isn't an issue but one who has some experience with destination weddings is a good idea. I'm in AB and mine is in BC. She was great.

 

Being Canadian I don't recommend doing flight and resort separate. We have one guest doing this as they are moving and weren't sure when and it's costing them soooooo much more.

Definitely work with a TA. Where are you going?

Were you able to do this and get perks?

 

I got 2 free trips and an upgrade to first class. Well worth using a travel agent.

 

Things work different in Canada and I assume the OP is Canadian as Sunwing is a Canadian company.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
