    Jennifer - thanks so much for that explanation. I never understood the reasoning behind those kinds of rules, but that makes total sense!
    I think the problem is that it's not clear.

    Linda - could you explain this to your guests? maybe if they understood why there was that rule, and they did the math, they would see that not only is there barely any diff in price but also that your hands are tied by a reasonable rule?

    I know if someone explained it to me that would completely let me know that
    1) if I want to go, i have to stay at EDR
    2) if I wanted to stay somewhere else, I can't go to the wedding.

    Simple decision for me, if I want to be at the wedding! :)

      Perhaps in letting your guests know you could have a page on your website that says something about:

      We very much prefer our guests to stay with us at EDR. This will allow us to spend more time with one another during the week doing fun things that are not necessarily wedding related. We all know how weddings are, they come and go so fast, and sometimes you do not have time to visit with all of your guests.
      However, some people may choose the option to stay at a nearby resort for a variety of reasons.
      I would like to point out that in choosing this option, please explore the options heavily first. While it may look better financially, there will be the cost of travel between your hotel and the EDR both ways. As well, to be on the grounds of any All Incusive hotel, all guests entering a hotel they are not staying at are required to pay for a day pass. That also applies to EDR. So for each day you choose to visit with us at EDR, there is a day pass fee of ____$. If you are consideing choseing an alternate hotel, please speak to myself or ____ so we can help you weigh out your options.
      I do believe all guests who would stay at EDR will love it. In researching the different hotels in the Mayan, we felt confident that the rooms, reagrless of class, are all amazing and well appointed. We felt that there were many daily acaitivies to allow you to create the vacation you want , and we felt the abundance of restaruant and bar choices would suit everyones needs!

        That is awesome, very well stated!
        I may have to copy and paste that on my website if my guests start wanting to book elsewhere.

          That's great BandE2008!!

          I would also heavily stress that there is no guaratee that EDR will allow a day pass for your wedding, as they limit them to only 5! There is the very likely chance that they will not be allowed to come onsite and will miss the wedding.

          A brief explainantion such as I provided above will help to clarify why they do the limit. Feel free to copy and paste.
