    Hello all,
    I am getting married at EDR but am now thinking of having guests stay at another hotel nearby since it is very expensive (especially now with the flight prices increasing) then they can come to EDR for the wedding/reception. Anyone know of a nearby hotel to EDR?

    Thank you!!

      You know I did a lot of research on this for some friends that could not afford to stay at the resort. In my opinion, the cheapest hotels looked to be in Cancun. I'm trying to locate what I found and will PM it to you. My TA suggested Iberostar as the closer cheaper alternative.

      In the end, these people did not end up booking and will not attend.

      Keep in mind, you will have to buy day passes for everyone to attend the wedding (somewhere around $76/person). If you plan on having any cocktail parties, you would also most likely have to purchase more passes for them to come on the property.

      I personally would think long and hard about whether you want to get married at EDR if your guests will not be there. I think a lot of the fun of a DW is the big ol' party the whole week with your closest friends and family.

        I think what we would do is everyone (including me ) would stay at a cheaper hotel then go to EDR for ceremony/reception. then i would just stay there for my honeymoon. Guess we'll see what the rates end up being :) Thanks for the suggestions!

          I don't think that EDR would go for that. I doubt they will allow day passes for the entire wedding, including bride and groom. I would be very clear with them about your plans upfront, so that there aren't any surprises later.
          Good luck!
