SMALL wedding...

Recommended Posts

I'm in the same boat, we have 10 people and are getting married at 4pm. I'm going to get a band for an hour or 2 and do a semi-private dinner. I figure after that, we'll just chill and have drinks and go to the disco later. I was hoping the beach party was that night, but it's not. Oh well! Bonfire sounds like a good idea if it's possible to set one up though!

We are having a small wedding also. I plan on having dinner with our IPOD set up for music. Will do our cake cutting there as well. After that go to the bar for drinks and then later to the disco for dancing. May do the first dance at the disco = )

not at all! I have a pretty casual dress. i didn't want to be running around the hotel in a big gown if I wasn't having a private deal. I plan on just removing my veil & being just a slightly more dressed up hotel guest.

If you don't feel comfortable, you can always change into a more casual white dress.

I'm glad to hear more people are not planning their own reception. It's really not in my budget. I also know we can have a blast without it. I'm hoping we can just find a less crowded area of the hotel to hang out at. Hopefully that area has karaoke :)

We're having a small wedding as well - 17 guests (4 1/2 weeks to go!!) We're getting married at four, then have hired a steel drum band for an hour and have ordered champagne and O'rderves (sp?:)

to be served on the beach. then pics, then dinner at 6:00pm. We will then head to the disco from 8-10pm. Then just do whatever from then on!

 

Whatever you decide will be perfect! And if you get the upgrade to the suite-drinks at your place will be perfect!

This is what I'm doing too. I have about 25 guests coming but my ceremony is at 11am, lunch "reception" at noon, then FI and I are going to do our TTD pics and tell everyone they can meet us later that night for drinks or at the disco if they want.

Thanks everyone for your advice!! It makes me feel more comfortable with just having people back to our suite for drinks, then going to the disco later. I was just so worried that our guests would expect more... but then again it has been me reading these forums, not them! It is so nice to hear so many other destination brides with small groups! I think I am definitely leaning this direction now seeing as our budget is already tight as it is (we are having a formal reception when we get home, and have to pay for this as well!!). Thanks again for all the help!

Mine is at 4. Wedding 4-4:30, guests can hang out while we take pictures. There is a place that serves ice cream that I thought they'd enjoy at this time. Then dinner 6ish. Afterwards we'll just do whatever seems fun. We'll probably figure out the night before what bar/ activity we'd want to do. I'd enjoy just sitting by the pool or beach drinking a beer & talking to everyone. I think that's a great thing about a small group. You don't really need structure. I also don't want to stay up all night. Otherwise I know I'd pass out as soon as I hit the bed. So we'll probably head to our room around 8-9.

AFter dinner I was thinking of going to the beach party they have every friday night. I think that would be a great thing to do to get the full Jamaican experience! Atleast that is what Holly's sister did after her wedding (I love The Girls Next Door!) lol!

And if we want to go to the Disco later we can, or whatever!
so that party at holly's sister's wedding wasn't just for her wedding? definitly do that. it looked amazing. I was thinking they really put together an extravagant party for her wedding. Now I know that was just a typical friday night.

who doesn't want a booty shaking contest at their wedding? seriously, their party looked like a blast.

are you getting married at the same hotel? I would request rory (was that his name) the butler to be the one that married me. He was awesome.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
