Wedding Guests That Are Single. How Did You Work Things Out?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

My wedding is scheduled for Feb 11, 2015. The resort is a couples/adult result so double occupancy rates apply, like with most resorts. 

I have a few non coupled friends that I am trying to pair up to save costs, but I am worried that if one of the pair backs out, that the other person may not want to go because of cost. There are options of 2x double beds in some of the suites.

 

Did anyone have this situation and how did you deal with it? Did anyone have a single odd person out?

 

Much appreciated!

My singles were young adults and we ended up booking rooms for them together.  If one backs out I guess we will make up the difference in cost to a single room.  Hope we don't have to deal with that though

My singles were welcome to bring someone along as a guest- or if they want help finding a roomie I would offer to help pair them... But so far our singles want their own room and have booked that way. We ended up getting them a great rate of only an extra $200 for the single supplement

Wow $200 is great. Ours is something crazy like $900. So we've been pairing people up and even have some people in triples now

I have a few singles going. I think at our resort it's about $146 more so no one really cared. And didn't want to bunk up with someone they didn't know.

We have pretty much left it up to our guests! Some have talked and doubled up, others just got single rooms, and some have invited a friend with them. The cost was about $200 for a single as well...not too bad! I had a single room for my sisters wedding 6 years ago and loved it!! Only my mess around, room service breakfast for one on my patio in the mornings...it was great!

Our resort is a family friendly resort so I'm leaving it up to the guests to decide. I think most of the singles may be bringing a guest or there's enough of them that are friends that will room with each other.

Wow! I had no idea that that sort of arrangement could be made! I will have to ask the resort to see if they accommodate that kind of thing. If they do that would really save me some mental stress! Thanks everyone!

Every hotel allows only one adult in a room- you just need to ask your TA what the single occupancy rate is for your various room types reserved. Obviously rates are normally based on double occupancy so when they are only getting one person in the room it is more expensive, and conversely when there are 3-4 people in the room it works out to be less $/pp. We got pricing for single, double and quad occupancy.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
