Palace Resort requires everyone going to the wedding to book under "one source group booking". Meaning, everyone attendign the wedding must book via the same travel agent and the agent will submit the group all together.
If a guest books OUTSIDE the group (example: via expedia.com or any other website or travel agents), resort will charge the guest an additional fee to attend the wedding. $25 per person for cocktail party, $50pp for any other private event like ceremony and reception). Those who book outside the group also do not count towards the minimum room nights required for the perks and benefits.
Now, how do I tell the guests this? Do I put it on my invitation? Do I put it on my webiste (what if someone doesn't look at the website)? How do I word this so it's not offensive? "you MUST book with MY TRAVEL AGENT or else you will have to pay an additional $125!!" doesn't sound too friendly.
Please help~ Thank you.
