The extra cost comes into play too if we go over our #s because it will be like 11 extra people if they all come and bring guests....Let me know what everyone ended up doing!

 

We have allowed our single friends to bring a guest, we are not staying at an AI and do have to pay per person for the recpetion dinner, open bar even set up fees, but it only ends up being about 3 or 4 extra people for us and we wanted those guests being comfortable. My brother is even just bringing one of his friends down. It just even better for excursions that way those guests dont feel they have to hang around people they dont really know.

We're in the same boat. I had a couple of my aunts tell me they were bringing their girlfriends (because they thought it would be fun to hang out with them in Mexico). And a couple of my friends who aren't dating anyone seriously are planning to bring someone to room with them. I didn't exactly like the idea of having to pay for random people; but at the same time didn't think it was fair to tell some people they could bring a guest and tell others they couldn't. So we just decided to bite the bullet on that one. We're staying at an AI resort and having to pay per person for the meal. We're also taking all of our guests on a catamaran excursion for the day and that cost is per person as well so it will definitely add up. Oh well, just add it to the other gazillion trillion dollars we're already spending on this wedding. LOL

Thanks everyone, yeah I am thinking I will have to bite the bullet as well and just invite them with guests. I am assuming not all will come anyway, so hopefully it will all even out in the end. Our AI is expensive if you go over the set amount of guests in the package as well, the fear of the unknown is killing me at this point! Especially with not being able to do certain things (welcome bags, budget, ect.)

That would be awesome if i dont come up with any other sources or ideas.. i might drop lace altogether and do a paper bellyband with the ribbon around that....

so wait, all of you DIY brides,  how are you getting all your wedding stuff down to your destination weddings?  Shipping them?
I don't have the heart to ship anything. I would die if something didn't make it or got got damaged in transit. It's all coming on the plane with me or a friend/family member.
