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 everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
