Recommended Posts

Good idea on the email i was wondering the same....But my problem is i have close friends who i wouldn't bunk w/ certain untrustworthy family members and/or those slightly unbalanced family members if you get what i mean...that would just be a whole other issue!

Maybe you could go in contract with the resort that you are going to reserve this number of rooms but that could go less but not less than n, which is a number that will surely occupy rooms.  Then state an RSVP date for strict compliance so that you could avoid any unwanted incidents that would make it ugly. Been there, done that, it is going to get ugly if not handled properly.  Let your coordinator do it for you, they would be more than willing of course.

The people on our guest list who are likely to come alone are long-time singles and married people whose spouses might not attend, so they're unlikely to be scrambling to find a date and will plan on coming solo from the get-go.  We have a small guest list and feel comfortable suggesting pairings/groups via e-mail, based on similar interests and personalities and/or whether they've met or not.  So far, no one has stumped us with a disagreeable personality.  Most of our friends are used to bunking up with others to save money.

We had this problem too. We are getting married Nov 30! But what we ended up doing was suggesting pairs... but that doesnt always work especially age and gender differences. What we also did was suggest that the singles bring someone else who was not invited to the wedding with the understanding that they would not be included in the wedding events due to extra cost. This actually went over phenomanelly! People are happy to bring someone they would enjoy travelling with but arnt necessarily someone you know. This also gives the single person an opportunity to have a travelling companion for tours and dinner partners. We are pretty relaxed and thought this was a good solution. Also one group rented a junior suite. So one individual is staying in the bed out in the main room and the couple is staring the enclosed bedroom. Saving on money compared to the astronomical price for a single to rent.

 

Hope this helps.
