    Hello everyone my name is Shaneque and I recently got engaged in August of this year. I was planning a traditional wedding but then a coworker told me about his destination wedding and the price of it was half the reception fee. I went researching and tried a lady who does the planning but got discouraged today once she sent me pricing options for hotels for my guest. I mean is 600-700 the normal range for 3 night stays? I thought that was ridiculous. Also ladies if you have any tips or recommendations please let me know. If you planned your destination wedding on your own please fill me in.


    Sincerely,

      @MissWest Congrats on your engagement and welcome to the forum.  My first advice , you might want to get in touch with a travel agent who specializes in Destination Wedding. There owners of this page are travel agent.  Also check out the low season resort prices depending on where you prefer to have your wedding. you might find some good deals.  

       

      So many Brides do plan on their own especially when having a resort wedding.

       

       

      Happy Planning!

            If you want a more intimate setting the off season is much better and the prices are sometimes half of what you will find otherwise.

            TA are great ideas - they will take what you imagine and let you know a realistic budget for what you want
