Kick Backs For Bride And Groom

Recommended Posts

I am booking a wedding at Azul Fives for May 2018. Wondering what other brides/grooms have received as an incentive for bringing a large group to their hotel or does the travel agency vary? We don't have a confirmed # yet but we are thinking there will be approx 75-80 ppl. I am only being offered from my travel agency every 21st guest stay free up to 3 people. I don't feel that is very fair, but not sure what anyone else has recieved or is this what most other groups are recieving?

 

Thanks!

Hi there. Where are you from? Canadian and US brides have very different promotions. As a Canadian getting married at the Azul Sensatori, I received very little from the resort itself. Even had to pay for the "free" basic package. Their argument is that we see the savings in the packages offered by our tour operators (Sunwing, Transat, etc.). Apparently, our combined flight/hotel/transfers savings are substantial so we lose the right to free cocktail parties, etc.

 

I would highly recommend that you find a GI Certified Travel Agent as they seem to have access to additional promotions. I had my travel agent chosen before deciding on a resort so I didn't have that advantage. She's been fabulous though so I'm not too concerned on what I might have missed out on. LOL

Hi,

 

We're having our destination wedding at Azul Fives in December 2017.  Justin at Beach Bum Travel Agency got me some really good deals, including waiving the fee for the sky deck, a discount on the food, and a bunch more things that were just awesome and got a great deal on the rates.  Feel free to shoot me a message if you want more details or justin's contact info.  We're expecting between 90 and 120 people.

We are May 2018 at Azul Sensatori in Riviera Maya. Our travel agent and our contract outlined the perks and they are pretty standard. Karisma has gone to a "Credit" based comps for the bride & groom. so everything is a credit back to you, after the event. So you'll pay 100% for your room, and then get a check/credit to your card - probably 4-6 weeks after. 

 

Check our the promo predicator - enter your dates, # of double rooms you plan to have booked, wedding date and resort and BAM! estimated comps will be listed. keep in mind, only double rooms count towards the wedding comps - any single rooms that are booked aren't counted.

Keep in mind - different promos for US vs. Canada and even different promos for weekday weddings vs. Saturday weddings. 

 

Your contract from the hotel / travel agent should outline exactly what you're getting...We are getting 1 free room for every 6 paid rooms (7th room free). But "rooms" = nights in this case, so right now we have 35 nights booked (8 rooms) - so we're estimated 5 or 6 nights free, right now. The free nights do not include taxes or fees and are the lowest room rate possible.

TandA, I'll be getting married at Azul Beach in June 2018 and I qualify for the same promotion you described. Thank you so much for posting the link to the calculator...it's immensely helpful!

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
