I am getting married at RMB June 9, 2012 and this policy has worried me too.  I can't believe that they would cancel a wedding for not booking the right amount of rooms.  I am hoping my guest choose to stay at RMB for the convenience and because it is a nice resort.

THANKS!!!

You get points here on BDW by posting on threads, starting your own thread, etc. It seems like it takes forever at first to get points but just keep reading threads and posting and you'll have enough in no time!

 

Happy planning!

 

Thank you, that explains it!  This means I have some sharing to do and friends to make. Easy enough. :-)

Our travel agent suggested not really giving guests the option. Don't be pushy of course, but she suggested just saying, "The wedding will be held at Riu-Montego Bay. Here is the link to check out the accommodations." If you start having guests spread out in different hotels, you'll have so much more of a headache later.

-They'll have to get day passes.

-They won't have the all-inclusive meals and drinks

-If there is time between ceremony and reception, they won't have a room to go back to

-They will have to make travel arrangements to get there, and cabs can be very expensive.

 

Of course, it is always up to your guests where they want to stay, but having everyone at the same hotel would make your life a lot easier. Plus, then you can all enjoy each other's company at the pool or beach for the rest of the time you're there.

I too cannot stand those ugly blue wicker chairs that most certainly wont go with my peach and green decor so i decided to rent the chiavari chairs for the reception and use chair covers with tiebacks for the ceremoney...my Tai Flora bill is already past 3000.00 already
