3 Factors that Determine Guest Costs
Destination: Your wedding costs will rely heavily on the destination you get married in. Our recommendation? Go with one of "The Big 3" - Mexico, Jamaica, or The Dominican Republic! These locations are romantic, affordable, and have the largest variety of resorts under the sun!
Time of Year: Guest costs are also determined by the time of year you get married. For example, the best rates are found during off-season in September and October. Besides the best room rates, you’ll find that resorts have lower occupancy levels during this time, leaving plenty of pool chairs open for everyone. November and December are also good options, as long as you avoid the holidays (when rates and occupancy go way up)!
Resort: If you want the best pricing for your guests - definitely go all-inclusive. When all your meals, drinks, entertainment, airport shuttles and taxes are included, guests can gauge their budgets and plan accordingly. This is especially true for wedding groups, as the cost you pay for private dinners and events is significantly reduced. Convenience is also huge reason couples opt for all-inclusive!
Average Guest Cost Break Down
The Resort: Most resorts charge between $150-$250 per person, per night –but that includes your room, your meals, your drinks, taxes and tips!
The Flights: Two round-trip flights cost around $1,000 depending on airline and destination.
Average Total Cost: For a 3-night/4-day package, each wedding guests will spend about $1,100 - not too bad!
