Guest paying for all inclusive=guests paying for wedding food?
Posted 06 April 2009 - 04:37 PM
Our wedding is coming up in June and I expressed to my fiance that maybe we should give our guests the money for that they paid for the all inclusive rate for that day but he thinks I'm over analyzing and thinks that it is the norm when it comes to destination wedding and all inclusive resorts. The other problem is that even if we wanted to give back the amount they paid for the day of the wedding, we don't have the money in our budget since we never budgeted for this in the first place.
What should we do? Anything? What are you guys doing about food for your wedding? Is is per plate or it all inclusive

How about treating your guests to a group excursion? Maybe you can find something that fits within your budget!

The party sounds fun! Your guests will love it. I wouldn't worry about the rest. If I was your guest, I wouldn't care since it's a vacation anyway : )

We are having ours at an AI within a similar price range. We aren't even having a formal reception bc I just cant justify paying extra for food at an AI resort. We are just having tables reserved at one of the restaurants on the resort. We may do a cocktail hour on the beach that is private which our resort charges around $100 for... but that's it. IMHO, you are fine .. I think it would get tricky if you start paying people back for the day.

Honestly, though, I don't think you should worry about it at this point. If any of your guests noticed this part about the wedding and actually cared about it, the damage is already done. If they haven't noticed and/or don't care, then "giving back" the money for the day of would only highlight the situation and be a little awkward.

Just relax, Enjoy your Day
Remember worrying will cause wrinkles!

I agree with the other ladies in suggesting that if you really feel you have to do something, then maybe you and your FI can pay for an excursion for the guests, or if you haven't already thought about it, give them really nice OOT bags filled with things they can use during their stay. I'm sure they'll be happy with any thoughtful gesture you extend.
Your guests are there to celebrate your special day with you, I really don't think it would cross their mind that they "paid" for your wedding. In all honestly, a lot more goes into the wedding than just the food and drink -- you guys will be fronting money for other things aside from that, and in the end your guests will simply be happy to share that special day with you.
