How did that work for you? Did you have a lot of guests going elsewhere? Did it impact your perks and bonus offers through your TA? Are you still able to link all the reservations as a part of your wedding group for those that booked elsewhere? I have read too many horror stories on here of parties being moved to other resorts not knowing they were part of a wedding group when overbooking happens... And for guests not being linked to the wedding and it causing confusion that I pushed my guests to book only with our TA. All by 2 of my 82 guests did so (they have a time share in the area and are coming just for the wedding), but I'm worried we might have stragglers book with someone else as we get closer to the date & and am not sure how resorts ensure they are linked to the master.

I offered my guests to book alone or at other resorts too. No one booked at another resort and only 1 family didn't book with us as their son works for westjet. We have 2 families in Mexico - one booked with us and one didn't.

 

I have to submit my own guest list to the resort as well, so everyone will be on it. I'm sure they just confirm if they are all at the resort as I didn't request any day passes. Didn't affect anything with perks as thankfully 99% booked with us.

 

Are these horror stories when people book alone or as a group? (I've read some) I bet it happens with both :( It's unfortunate but will not worry about it!
