    Ok so I'm less than 2 months away from my wedding and I'm stressing about activities for my guests. The wedding is April 26, 2008 and the itinerary is as follows so far:
    THURSAY 4/24
    Welcome Party

    FRIDAY 4/25
    Ladies: Spa
    Men: Golf/ATV Riding/Jet Skiing (Need Suggestions Por Favor)
    Rehearsal
    Rehearsal Dinner (at the Paradisus)
    Group Trip to Downtown Karaoke Bar -Showtime
    (Has anyone heard of it?)

    SATURDAY 4/26
    Wedding

    SUNDAY 4/27
    Farewell

    Can you all give me your Friday suggestions, or day before the wedding activity suggestions. I'm stressing out over here!

    Has anyone ever gone to Showtime for Karaoke?

    Or had a Casino Night activity brought into their resort?

    What are some of the things you're planning?

    Anyone staying on the property the entire time?

    Please Help

        Hi LeShay!
        May I suggest you let them just hang out and enjoy the pool, beach, going to the market or anything else?

        I only had 41 adults and they hung out together, found things to do and the few things we did have planned other than the welcome dinner and wedding, some people still did their own thing. Which was good because we stressed about it a little and people just enjoyed the resort.

        This is what we had:

        Thursday night - out for bachelor/bachelorette
        Friday - rehersal and welcome dinner
        Saturday - wedding
        Sunday - Brunch (no one really showed at 10am... they either got up early to enjoy their last day, or slept in from partying all night!)
        Sunday afternoon - Jungle tour (only 10 of us went - people wanted to stay at Dreams)
        Monday - Chichen Itza (6 of us went - again, people didn't want to be away from the resort all day - 7:15am -8:30pm)

          Wow I like the idea of having your bachelor/ette party there, and it was probably great that you were right downtown? Where did you do your rehearsal dinner?

            I think you have plenty planned. I wouldnt stress if you dont have to. Im sure its going to be a vacation to alot of people so they might not want there whole time planned for them. Just my thoughts, because i was originally going to plan something for everyday and after talking to alot of quests they would rather plan as they go and just relax.

              Yeah, remember this is a vacation for them too. They may have things they want to do but will feel obligated to go with you. Just let them feel their way through it. You have plenty planned.

                Yes, we walked to Coco Bongo - it was a blast!

                We stayed at Dreams, we met in the tower lobby at 6pm... took until 7pm for everyone to get there which was right when dinner was being served in the ballroom with a Carribbean show.
                It just worked out that they closed all the restaurants that night for the Carribbean dinner.

                  The resorts often have a different theme everynight. When I was in Cancun our hotel had karaoke one night, casino the next. Just take advantage of the entertainment already at the hotel. That way guests don't feel obligated to participate & you don't have to worry about/ pay for any of it. Just being in Mexico @ one of the great resorts is fun. You don't have to make fun happen, it just will.

                    I agree - don't stress over it. I think you'll find most of your guests will just be happy to do their own thing - it's a vacation for them too!

                      You ladies are right! I was really stressed about this for 3 days straight - but THEY DO WANT THEIR OWN VACATION. I think I'm going to take Karaoke off the itinerary - thanks so much for the suggestions.
