Hi Ladies!!

 

I have been very actively watching this thread, taking lots of notes...but now I have a question...

 

My fiance has a very large family...we have only invited adults to the wedding in Turks...but now all the Aunts and Uncles have gone behind our backs started booking, and looking into the vacations with children included. So, ok, we can't do anything about that, and we explained that it's an adults only wedding and reception and the kids will be invited to the AHR. Wellllll now a bunch of the family, actually majority, are looking into a house to rent off the Beaches resort....So now I have a new stress.....the day passes.

 

Everywhere that I'm reading says that off site guests to Beaches need a day pass. We are doing the private wedding reception and dinner, so it says there is a negotiated rate of $150/pp including their plate at the reception...so have any of you brides had to pay this guest pass? Did YOU pay for it?? OR did you expect the guest that didn't stay on property to pay the 1/2 of the pass since it's normally $75/pp for the private reception? I'm so confused, and got really upset on the 4th of July because it was brought up then....Because I got so upset about it (tears, not screaming lol) the family said they would just stay on property if it was going to be an issue. This will make a huge difference in budget....and also the other factor of the kids in our family on the Beaches resort when we were hoping not to have to worry about them...(our honeymoon is for the full week after the wedding and we are staying at Beaches...the family members are all staying as well).....

 

So I guess this question is just wondering what has happened with these guest passes in the past for brides...who paid for them, etc....

 

Thank you for any input!!!

Welcome Wendy5512.  You're right - this is such a great site!  Everyone is so willing to share information and wonderful ideas..  The past brides are super too and many have remained on here after they get married to give input which really helps us newbies. 

I'm getting married one month after you on 6/4.  One of of these pages there is a list with all of the upcoming wedding dates.  Be sure to add your name/date and post it for here for all of us to see so we will have the latest & greatest.  Lizdee do you have that list?

 

Happy wedding planning!

Mary

Hi, beachbride0519

 

I was wondering the same thing.  What have others done.  When we first started looking into Beaches a few months ago their listed price was $85 for a day pass....now I see it has gone up to $150 pp!!  WTH?  That's a substantial cost increase and for what?  It's not like the guest is going to be eating and drinking more than they did a couple months ago.  I wonder if they will negotiate this down if we ask Beaches (or better yet complain about the pricing!)

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • Please help me out, I am little bit confused in choosing the right website. As I am looking for a wedding ceremony script, I visited many websites but I found only three useful but still have doubt in choosing one. So I put a poll to determine which is the better option. Please vote and share your opinion. Thanks🙂 
    • Congratulations Kim and follow all mandatory guidelines and be safe. BEST WISHES both of you💞
    • It's so sweet, Nice idea. Perfect for a cute wedding.😍
    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
