understandable. I mentioned the 5 ONLY thing on my wedding website but I guess it didn't work. . This has me so worried and feeling bad for some of my guests.

So what happens if less people than are supposed to stay there stay? I mean, they wouldn't stop the wedding would they?

The bathrooms are busier, the walkways are busier and overall you are not getting the vacation you paid for! You'd be really upset- I know I would be!
The resorts are built to accomodation comfortably a certain amount of people. The amenities and overall ambience is based on that head count. The more expensive an resort generally the more "space" you have per person (this goes for cruise ships also!) and usualy the less people they will allow in for a day pass.
The resorts do limit the number of day passes they give out-especially at an all inclusive as they don't want the facilities over run and the guests who are staying there upset.
I'd let your guests know that although you sympathize and hope that they can still attend- if they book elsewhere their is no guarantee they will be allowed in to attend the wedding.

When you want a beverage instead of walking right up to the bar you can't get to it because every seat is taken and there are people standing 2 deep? Now it takes 15 minutes to get a drink- the bartenders are too busy to be friendly and keep everything spotless.
You go to get a chair by the pool but the weddng guests have taken them all..... really where else will they go when waiting for the bride & groom because they don't have rooms ?
You want lunch but the restaurant is full and instead of a 10 minute wait you now have an hour ?
Many times the guests will get there early to fully enjoy the resort (especailly if they are trying to save $$ by not staying at an AI) but the day passers only have access to the public spaces.
These are many of the reasons that the resort can not allow unlimited amount of day passes for people to come onsite just for a wedding. The people who have spent the $$ to stay at that propery have certain expectations and it would not be fair to them for El Dorado to over run the property with non- guests.
They could probably make more $$ by allowing an unlimited amount of guest and charging day pass fees- think about it...the resort fills to capacity ( and El Dorado does quite often) and then get another 100 or so per day pass.....
They'd do quite well as they have so many weddings!
