Some of my friends have asked and I mentioned the pass. My mom said some of her friends have asked and she wanted to know WHY but I just told her that is a common policy at AI resorts.

So I guess it's going by word of mouth, but I think that that at a last resort I will add it to my website.

i posted on our wedding website that if guests plan to stay at another resort they will have to pay a $100/pp day pass. so far everyone is staying at the same place. there's no way we could afford to pay that price for everyone.

My situation was similar, but its FI's fam that lives in the DR, the day pass is only $50 at my resort, but we are telling his family that if they want to attend the wedding they should stay for the night. They can book for 1 night for $65-$95 per person, might as well enjoy 20 hrs of leisure time. :)

I put it in the Q & A section of our website and I've reminded the few people who have mentioned staying somewhere else.

I gave notice to my guests on both my website and invitations. On the invites, I just said something like if you are not staying at the host resort you will be required to purchase a day pass directly from the resort. On the website I said basically the same thing but I also included the price of the day pass.

Yeah maybe I am just not proper but I think if some guests decide to book last minute to save a few bucks and end up not being at the same resort as me, I am not going to be out that same few bucks for their day pass! But that's me...and my non proper ways! lol.

I wish I was more on the ball on this one. I didn't even think about this issue until NOW!

 

Now I have 10 ppl booked elsewhere and our resort charges $95 for a day pass! That's $10,000 if I am going to cover it. That's ridiculous! I guess I will just give those people a call and let them know that they will have to pay their own day pass. Oh god! I feel so bad.

 

Wish I would have thought of this 6 months ago. I definatly would have put it on the invites, STD and website!

I'm in the same boat now and wondering what I should do. 8 ppl, my FI's cousins, are staying at a rental house nearby. I just found this out and apparently my FI never told them they would have to pay to get in for the wedding. I never thought of mentioning it on my website, I only mentioned the resort with the TA info for booking there and they never asked me otherwise.

I feel bad making them pay, but us paying for all 8 is just too much. I think I'll have my FI tell them they need to buy the day pass themselves but have him mention that they can use if all day there. Maybe they won't be upset about paying it they can make a day of it. They can snorkel, hang out by the pool, eat and drink all they want, then get ready in someone's room before the wedding since it's not until 5.
