Who pays for day passes?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

If a guest opts not to stay at the resort you've booked for the wedding, does he/she pay for the day pass or should the bride and groom? And how do you communicate the arrangement to them?

 

thanks!

I think it is a personal decision for the couple. If you can fit it in your budget I think it's a nice thing to do. But if you can't do it then I would include that in the information you send out in your invitiation and your website if you are planning to have one. At a wedding I went to guests paid the day pass and I was totally fine with that.

We are paying the guest passes for anyone not staying at our resort. We realized that some people couldn't pay the extra money to stay at our hotel but after traveling so far to come to our wedding, felt it as the least we could do for them.

 

When we sent out our STDs, we put a note in there that basically stated we strongly recommended they stay at our hotel because the hotels tend to be spread out and transportation can take awhile. (We were hoping that would get them to stay at our hotel, lol).

 

So far, of the 50 who have booked, only 4 (a family) are staying elsewhere.

I think it depends on the bride and groom and the people coming. We are opting to pay for guests day passes if they don't stay at our resort. Yes, we want everyone to be a guest where we stay, but some people can't afford it and we feel that if they are making the effort to get to Mexico to see us get married, we can cover their day pass.

 

But again, it depends on the bride, groom and guests involved.

Thanks for the input---and the link to the other thread really helps! I'll have to think about it; I'll probably just be clear about it in the invite and then see who opts for what. If only a few decide to stay elsewhere we should be able to pay for it.

 

Thanks!

Oh...and we did tell people we'd pay for their day passes for the day of the wedding, but are VERY clear that other days, if they want to hang out at our resort it'll be almost $100 per person....when I tell them that and then tell them the things they get when staying with us (food, drink, excursions) they opt to stay with us (except for one couple who are on teh fence still)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
