I just started my research for a Destination Wedding and am wondering what places give/have the best deals? I will be having a small wedding (just under 30 people). I am open to any destination. What do you ladies suggest?
Thank you 🙂

We had ours in the Dominican Republic at the Melia Caribe Tropical. It was about 1600 pp air fare included for a week. We had 32 people.

@Kimura: i think your best bet is to look at travel agents who handle Destination Wedding…so you ca see what the best deal is if you do a group booking
for example dreams like pp mentioned is expensive if you book it as a hotel seperately, but there are some great deals when you combine flights and hotels
but first you need to have an idea which country youre looking in 🙂

my best friend had her wedding at Dreams in Cancun. It was AWESOME we loved it there. I want to say she paid 90 a head (about 30 people) for cake, food, unlimited drinks etc. it was really beautiful.. i’ll email you some pictures if you want to message me your email.
its completely inclusive, room service, all alcohol, mini fridge, 5 restaurants on site and a buffet for every meal.
loved it! i’ll answer your other questions if you have any! I was her Maid/Matron of Honor so i should know most answers lol

also if you happen to live in atlanta there is a travel agent here that specializes in Dreams and gets great rates (she upgraded all our rooms for no charge)
there is also a Dreams specific bridal forum that she used to plan her wedding and she sold her decorations to a bride that was having a wedding the same weekend!

I am not sure if you meant the price for the trip or the actual wedding like I said the trip was 1600 pp with air. The wedding csme to 9500 for 32 people. We got all the extras originally the basic wedding was about 4000.

I got married at Now Jade in Riviera Maya. Highly recommend it. I think it was about $1400/person with air. Our wedding package was $3000 and I didn’t have too many updgrades. The resort does a lot of weddings so they know what they are doing. I also highly recommenct the website bestdestinationwedding.com…everythink you need to know about resorts for weddings! I met a lot of girls on that site that were incredibly helpful. You can pm me if you have any questions!

I know it seems off the path but Eureka Springs has 100’s of beautiful resorts/resort like cabin groups…A lot of them offer the same packages as some big resorts. And elopements and small weddings and…
It’s a really beautiful place.
A friend once planned her elopement/surprise wedding for 15 people including her three day honeymoon for less than 5k
