I apologize if this isn't in the right location, but I really couldn't find one that fit. For those of you that planned a resort DW (or are far enough along in planning to respond), I am curious to know what percentage of your guests stayed at the location you got married at? Also, if they had the choice to opt in or out of an all inclusive package, what percentage of your guests chose AI (if applicable)? Lastly, if anyone of you strongly suggested (or required) your guests to stay at your resort, would be curious to hear the language you used on your invites and/ or wedding website.
I'm in the midst of picking a venue in Cabo, and there are some locations that have pricing that varies significantly depending on how many guests choose to stay at their location (in some locations, our costs could more double if many of our guests decide to stay elsewhere). It makes me nervous that so much of the cost depends on what my guests do, so am wondering how how may of yours stayed at your location if you directed them to?
One of my friends had a DW just over a year ago, and she said only half her guests stayed at her resort...so wondering how common that is.
Hearing some other opinions on this may help me narrow down our options.
Thanks so much for your thoughts and opinions!
