... for the guests that are REALLY concerned with the costs...
I suggest they stay 3 nights at MP and then go find a bargin basement place elsewhere for after the wedding. I have a good majority of our guests that prefer it that way... especially those with timeshares, ect. They get to be a part of the wedding festivities... and then they get to have a vacation.
I'm still working on a cost comparison... I just got back from a surgery, so I had to put it on hold. I'll keep working on it and see what I can come up with in the next week.
Thanks Ash! I'm starting to make some major headway. I haven't sent out the invites as yet, but several family members who are RCI members have already booked the week of the wedding at the MP. One of my girlfriends that originally asked if she could stay at another resort and just come the day of the wedding is now opting to stay a the resort.
Ash, is there a 3-day requirement for guest to stay at the MP or can they stay for 1 night and go back to their resort the next day? I've left a message with my WC inquiring about it, but have not yet heard back.
