@@DinaQtobe regarding the discount room rates for our wedding guests they stated to go through a travel agent ? What did u end up doing ? , and was it even that great of a discount as oppose to guests just going their own way and booking through online sites.

 

We booked through bookit.com (USD to CAD was pretty similar at the time).  We had guests coming from all over Canada and the US, and they all booked on their own.   A travel agent will be beneficial if you have multiple guests flying out of the same location.  This way you might get some promo - ie every 12th guest is free.  I knew that we weren't going to have enough guests flying out of one location to make having a TA worth it for us.   I am not sure if you are in Canada or the US - it changes your options a bit.  We flew down on West Jet and they took such great care of us when they saw my wedding dress.  I just booked our travel for my sisters wedding and booked hotel and air separately as we found a great deal on the hotel and got a seat sale through West Jet.  Some of your guests are going to need help booking (I had to help book my entire husband's side of the family which was a little bit of stress and a lot of work to get them all together at once).

 

You will not be disappointed with the Now Sapphire!  We upgraded to the preferred status and I felt it was worth it - for the Adults only pool alone.  AND you get to reserve chairs on the beach!

 

Let me know if you have any other questions.

@@DinaQtobe Thanks so much for your response! We are in the US and the majority of us with the exception of 4 guests all live in the same state, (we have a small guest list 20-30). I will definetly look into the upgraded room, my fiancé and i love the beach so the reserved chairs sounds nice ! Question, i know we don't necessarily plan until 2-3 months before i believe, and costs depends on the extras we choose , my fiancé and i have a budget of 10k for the wedding, if possible our travel expense too, but we will save an extra3k for travel expense if we can't budget it to 10k for both, do you think that is manageable there at NOW?

You can absolutely do your wedding for 10K, even with travel.  We only upgraded on flowers - 3 bridesmaid bouquets and 2 extra boutonnieres.  I had very simple decor that I brought myself and we brought our own bluetooth speaker system down with us.  All in (dress, suit, invitations, rings, wedding party gifts, favors, travel, and wedding package) we  came just over $10,000.  Keep in mind this was almost 3 years ago and prices have changed a bit. We splurged in some places and kept a tight budget in others.  You have to be willing to do your research on how to save money.

@@DinaQtobe thank you so much for taking the time to respond on my post ! i greatly appreciated ! I must say , that my fiancé and i have finally decided on NOW Sapphire, we are currently in communication to try to save a date ! We are wanting a beach ceremony and the tequila terrace for the reception/cocktail hour. Im getting exited and cannot wait for the day even though its a ways away!

 

 

Hi! So glad to meet another 2018 bride :) We also have decided on Now Sapphire for our 2018 wedding. I've spent countless hours on this site and it gives you so much valuable information. Now Sapphire plans beautiful weddings and you get a lot for your money there. We have a strict budget and are planning for no more than 35 guests. If you are willing to do the research you will not be disappointed.... there are a lot of ways to cut costs to make sure you have your dream wedding within your budget. Also we are going through Wright Travel Agency, we have Babs as our TA and I must say she is AMAZING. If you haven't already, check out Now's special offers http://www.nowresorts.com/offers they have some good promotions that will help you with costs as well. 

 

There is a forum on here dedicated just to Now Sapphire there are a lot of pages but lots of good information and the brides are very nice.

    • 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?
