I guess it depends on whether you really want the additional guests to come. If so then yes send the invitations listing additional places to stay. That’s what we had to do seeing as the penthouse only hold a max of 14 people and we are sending out 20 invitations & all have a plus one listed.

What you could do is put info for other resorts near by on a website. Or if you do not have/like the idea of a websit I would include some info in the invitation. I dont know about you, but some of my guests are definitely not very travel savy and having a list of resorts would definitely help them.

@Lizzie123:  I’d make a wedding website (free!) and include your resorts info and any nearby info, including how to get there, what to do, places to eat.

is your wedding going to be AT the resort? If so, will guests staying elsewhere be able to enter freely for your wedding festivities?

@Lizzie123:  I would suggest a wedding website…we did noe for ours and it was a hit! We also only sent invites to the people we knew were alaready coming to the destination wedding and were booked at the resort

@Lizzie123:  I’d include the info for the other resorts on your website AND in print with the invitations.  If you only put it on the website, nearly all those ppl who haven’t yet booked will call/email/text you asking about where they should stay, how far it is from your main resort, how much it costs, how they’re supposed to get between the two, etc.  Just advance warning that putting it on a website is not enough even for web-savvy friends- so save yourself the annoyance.  

I had the info on a website and sent everybody a link to it, but I was still getting questions from every single guest nearly.  But as soon as I included a lil insert with the same info when I snail mailed out save the dates? like magic, not a single inquiry about the hotel info.

you might also see if you can get a discounted group rate at one or 2 other resorts.  they might do this even for a small # of rooms with no minimum reservation required.  that’ll make it a tiny bit easier for the extra guests & who knows, the new spots might even throw in free shuttle rides or something.

@Lizzie123:  no problem at all.  it’s funny. I remember debating whether I should even make the little accommodations and travel print outs to include with the save the dates.  it wasn’t until I saw your post that it dawned on me that I haven’t gotten a single annoying text/call/email asking me for that information since ppl got that info with the save the dates.  it’s so nice now- I will never debate that type of thing again.  whenever I’m thinking about whether to easily print out some info at home to include it in a guest mailing?  I’m just doing it.

@Lizzie123:  If you’ve sent people an STD I think you need to send them an invite.  I would go with the plan to include info about an alternate location.

I also wouldn’t send an invite to someone who has alreayd told you that they aren’t coming.
