I need a little help. We have had our wedding booked at Sandals Carlyle (Montego Bay Jamaica) since the end of April and had our invites completed and mailed out the end of June to ensure our guest had 1yr of notification and time to plan.
We were informed last week that our butler room would no longer be offered and our accomidations were changed to another resort ( Sandals Montego Bay) so we could still have our butler room.
The Sandals resorts in Montego Bay have 3 resorts and you have access to all 3 when you stay at any one and free transportation to each resort is included. Guest passes are not necessary.
Should I go through the process of sending out postcards, update the wedding website, make a facebook page ect. Or is it really necessary? I want our guests informed before they start booking rooms but it’s really up to them which resort they want to staty at.
Thanks for any help

I’d send an update postcard just to give people a heads up.

Could you send out an email to everyone? I don’t think it necessarily needs a mailed out flyer/postcard but a subtle change to a wedding website might not be noticed by everyone. Based on experience from planning my own dw…lol. Will your wedding still be held at the original resort?

MrsBlake2015: I think your guests deserve to know that the venue has been changed. Some people will want to ensure that they stay at the same hotel.
I think you can notify them with a new postcard, email, however you normally communicate with them. I do not think a website entry is enough.

Thanks for the input everyone. I really didn’t think the website entry would be enough, email would work for some but not all. So i guess the postcard would be the best to ensure everyone is notified.
jlc3: No, the wedding will have to take place at the resort that we are staying at. That was my only concern with having to change the resort. I assume that everyone would want to stay where we were, even if the other locations are 5-10 minutes away. I do know that we have a few guests staying at the other Sandals resort since they will be celerbrating their anniversary or there was a certian feature that they wanted (swim up rooms ect.)

You should put it on website and also let everyone know. You don’t have to mail something out, but you should let ppl know between email, phone calls, texts, and pms. Otherwise some ppl will choose which hotel to stay at because they think your wedding is there and then be irked because you didn’t even bother to tell them that the wedding has moved – that could really annoy a person especially if they’re paying for plane flight and accommodations and you knew it’d moved 8 or more months out and just didn’t feel like letting them know.

Email and update the website.
