    In the end it worked out just fine. Most people will find you and make that extra effort.
    This is a great idea if you are worried! We just all met for dinner every night at one of the restaurants together and even thought the resort we got married at was HUGE (Moon Palace Cancun) we ran into each other every single day at the pool - we had our own little spot and somehow we found each other!

      Our group is very small (15 people including us) and half are flying out with me and my FI. The rest are coming from different locations and will arrive a few days after us so I've let everyone know that on Apr 15 when everyone is at the resort, it would be great if we could all have dinner at an a la carte (I plan on making the reservation when we get there). Other than that, I've included info on our wedding website of things to do at the resort and around the city for our guests and most everyone has done research on their own and have told me what they would like to do while they're there. Most people in our group are viewing the trip as a holiday for themselves which is great. I think if we had a bigger group of people I would feel more obligation to entertain.

        I didnt read any of the other girls responses but here's mine. Stop stressing. Your guests are on vacation too let them do what they want to do on their vacay. You dont have to plan their vacay for them. Trust me they'll be fine. My guests all happened to see each other and than would meet with whomever they wanted to during the day or dinner. They also did a snorkle trip together but i didnt plan it they all did it on their own when they got there. So let your guests do what they want and you will have plenty of wedding stuff to worry about when you get there, keeping your guests occupied shouldnt be a concern. It will all be fine.
