Asking guests to stay at an all-inclusive resort
Posted 21 May 2008 - 12:38 PM
I'm just beginning to plan my wedding. Most likely it will be in Mexico, though the DR is a possibility.
We are working with a really tight budget and of course one way to save is to use an all-inclusive resort and have guests stay there and have the wedding package included. But is it ok to ask my guests to stay at the resort of my choosing, especially an all-inclusive? Some might want more freedom in choosing where to stay and how much money to spend on lodging/food.
Any etiquette advice here would be appreciated. Thanks!

The way I felt is if people didn't want to stay with us, I'd rather them not go. I just wanted a small group & only people who really did want to make the trip. We've made it super easy for people to skip it. We'll only have 24 guests & I'm very happy with that. We are all staying at the AI together & I think we'll have a blast.

When we sent out our save the dates, we included a letter in there that told them we realized they had many choices to strongly encouraged them to stay at ours because traveling between the resorts/hotels can take up a long time.
Also, for each guest that stays at a different resort, most resorts make you pay for a day/night pass to have them come on the property... some of them go up to $100 per person. So def check out how much they are at your resort (that was a major deciding factor of where we decided to host our wedding). Mostly everyone has stayed at our resort thus far, but there are about 4 people who are going to a different one.
