      welcome! i would advise that all your guests stay at the resort where your wedding is going to be held at. one reason is that you'll likely get charged fees for bringing guests to your wedding who are staying at a different resort. another reason is that sometimes it's hard to spend time with everyone if you are all separated.

        Congratulations and welcome to the forum! Don't worry about selecting a resort. It's always overwhelming in the beginning, but you'll find the more research that you do, the more you will know what you want. Plus, this forum has some awesome info that can help you. Good luck! :)

          Hi Sharon, welcome to the forum!!!
          I'm also getting married in early December!

          The great thing about destination weddings is that the rules are not set in stone and you can throw tradition out the window (if you like) and do whatever you want! lol

          I think most people do all stay at the same resort. I know that for me, part of what I am going to love is having a week long celebration with my family and friends, rather than just a day. As well, many resorts charge a day pass fee for those not staying at the resort to come in for the wedding, and this can be up to almost $100 at some places! I think this is why many of us struggle so much with picking a place - because we're trying to find somewhere that is going to work well for everyone, so that everyone will want and be able to afford to stay together. If this is an issue, you might want to consider some of the larger resorts that have different areas/resorts within one complex (like the Riu I think?), or different types of rooms and price levels so that those looking for luxury and those looking for thrift can be satisfied in one place.

          Good luck, hope we all can be of some help :)
