This is very variable. You Need A Budget per person for the portion travel package and you'll need to budget for your wedding package. Note that some hotels offer a free basic package with a number of guests (adults). For example the chain Melia Cuba provides free legal wedding package if you have 17 adults, including you. In addition, many hotels offer free every 11th adult passenger. If you have a group of 22 adults for example, you are entitled to two freebies that give, on average, between $ 1,500.00 and $ 2,500.00 (sometimes more ...).

This differs from one country to another, the date chosen and the type of wedding! I would say at least 12 months in advance and the reason is simple; if you have a significant date for you, important and specific in mind, you'll have the chance to book it.

There are several other reasons. Indeed, if you have a large group and want to have a private room for your meal and your reception, it is recommended that you take in advance in order to get it. There is also the price factor; rather you will make booking your wedding package group, the better the price due to promotions offered by wholesalers, in addition to some exclusive deals offered by hotel chains directly.


What time choose for a wedding in the south?

This differs from one country to another. For the Dominican Republic (January, February, March, April, May, June, September, October, November and December). In Cuba I would avoid January and February and December due to temperature variation. For Mexico I would avoid December and January because the temperature can be quite cool and that same day. For jamaica, I would say all year without problems but know it can do so extremely hot and humid perhaps avoid the summer. In the Bahamas I suggest avoiding December and January.

Ideally tell us the period selected and we will advise you on the best destination.
