How long did your guests stay?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how long did your guests stay at the resort? Did you ask that they not stay after a certain point so that you could continue on with your honeymoon? Or did are you going somewhere else after the wedding for the honeymoon?

 

If you asked them to not stay after a certain date, how did you let them know?

 

Lets say your wedding is on a Saturday and the guests arrive earlier in the week, do you ask them to leave or move to another location on Sunday?

 

Any advice would be appreciated. Not sure what we are doing as of yet.

I am just going to let my guests stay as long as they like. I figure far be it from me to stop people from enjoying their vacation. But then again I am not honeymooning where I am staying so I guess it is different.

This is one of the reasons we're going somewhere else for our honeymoon (Hawaii) and why we chose not to have our wedding in Hawaii - we didn't want people tagging along!

We went to another hotel for our honeymoon starting the night after the wedding. The longest people stayed was about 5 days after. I have to admit, we kind of missed them though...knowing that they were all together at the hotel and we were alone. But we got over it quickly :)

 

I don't think there is any nice way to ask people to leave by a certain date, sorry.

We will have a few days at the end by ourselves. And even before I've made it clear that I want some just us time. I'm excited to have most of my guests stay for a while though.

We just flat out told everyone that they can stay as long as they want but that we were going to be on our "honeymoon" so don't come knocking.. :-)

We are moving to another hotel after our wedding night. Some people are staying in Cabo up to 5 days after the wedding. We wanted our friends & family to make a vacation out of this, so we really encourage people to stay. While we will go off to our honeymoon hotel after the wedding, we still plan on hanging out some with the people that stick around. My BF's 30th birthday is happening while we are there, so we will definitely go hoot & holler with her.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
