In my invitation I stated:
It's best to make your reservations with our travel agent since it is the only means by which we can coordinate the entire wedding and keep everyone together and informed.Through word-of-mouth. I told everyone to at least book their rooms with her because she promissed to match or beat any rate.
Well my resort (Occidental-Punta Cana) charges for non-guest. I believe the cost is $100 per person/per day. I can't afford that cost!
Also through word of mouth I stated that their is a cost if they do not stay at the hotel.
I understand some of my guest reasons...which is they don't want to be a bother/inturupt the bride and grooms space. I have said on many occasions that we will be on the other side of the resort. PLUS we are leaving after the wedding to another resort. :-)!
Any advise how to relay this message anymore....or should I just not worry about it at this point other than word of mouth?
