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!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
