    I have two outside guest so far and they are paying for their passes. It will have to go through me since the resort changed their prices and will honor the old price for my wedding.

        Thx for the info.  Could you explain a little bit more about what you mean that the "have to go through you"?  Does that mean you have to put in the order and your guest will be paying you back?  How did you ask your asking?  I'm going back and forth whether I should ask them to pay for it and if so, how to be polite about it.

         

        When I was told about outside guests need day passes, I was under the impression that it was $99.  Is that the price that the resort is honoring?  What's the price now?

          We got engaged in our trip to Mexico last April and we are getting married June 2014... I'm so happy I found this forum because I had sooo many questions, right now I'm getting all the quotes from Katia. I want to do the Catholic ceremony at the amazing chapel but still thinking about our reception.... I want to see pics and get as many ideas possible!!! Thanks!!!!

            I can respond to this. When you pay for the guest pass it includes their meal & the pass to the hotel from I believe 8am to 11pm.  They can take advantage of food & drinks and everything else as if they were staying at the hotel.

              The resort will honor the original price they gave you for the guest pass, even if they had a price increase.

                We paid for our guests day passes (they're actually locals who live in Cancun so I argued the cost because they weren't coming to hang out at our resort for the day and we're staying at a rival resort) because technically it's their reception meal etc... You're not asking your other guests to pay for their reception meal so you wouldn't ask them either. Now if they come and choose to hang out and use the faculties all day perhaps figure out the difference between the prices of the reception etc (food, cocktail hour) for your guests staying at other resorts vs the guests staying at your resort and suggest they pay the difference? They don't have to know the cost per person...you figure that out and then say "hey, are you planning to come use the pool and restaurants all day? The resort requests you pay $10 in order to take advantage of all their facilities" type of thing...and you pay the rest. Does that make any sense? Lol ;)

                    Yes, @Billandstina!  Does make sense.  And thank-you @monicamb for your input as well. Very much appreciate it
