Is a Destination Wedding right for you and your Guests?
So we suggest that you check with these guests to see if attending your Destination Wedding is possible for them. Below is a sample of an email/letter that you could send to your guests prior to making your final decision on having a Destination Wedding.
Group Reservations versus B.C. Travel Company Wholesale Rates: What’s best for you and your guest?
A signed contract is required*
A non refundable deposit is required prior to the signing of the contract*
A deposit for each room/person is required usually within ten days after the contract is signed*
Contracts have cancellation penalties*
Contracts may have financial penalties if all contracted rooms are not utilized*
Generally recommended if your wedding is over a holiday or school vacation timeframe
Generally recommended if your wedding is at a small resort that may become sold out prior to all of your guests reserving their rooms
If guests deviate from the contracted block (dates) they could be required to pay a deviation fee, i.e. you contract for rooms Friday to Monday, guests want to go Thursday to Monday
Your guests that do not book through B.C. Travel Company, or choose to stay at a nearby resort, will not be counted towards the contracted commitment
This is not recommended for weddings at small resorts that may become sold out prior to all of your guests reserving their rooms
No signed contract is required with non refundable deposit
Deposit only required at time of individual guest booking
No minimum number of rooms required
Best way to go using B.C. Travel Company destination wedding email or invitation cards to encourage guests early booking with preferred resort information
