Welcome reception

Recommended Posts

Hey brides! How do you go about setting up a welcome party at the hotel for your guests? I have like 6 people coming in on Thursday and 6 people coming in on Friday. . .so I am not sure what to do or how to go about doing it.

Why don't you just have one in your room. You have the liquor from the despenser and I am sure you could get from the resort whatever else you want. Have so drinks and then go for dinner?

I contacted Chandlyn and rented out the Seagrape Beach Bar on a night when all of my guests will be there. But I agree with what was said above...you can save some money by doing it in your room since you have a smaller number of people.

Chandlyn told me we can do it at St Ann's semi-private and free of charge. That's where we're doing ours!

...and what a bout St. Ann's ? what is required of a welcome reception is it just drinks? or food also? what exactly is done at the welcome reception? (stupid question) how long does it last?

We are doing informal welcome receptions each night. In the letter I'm sending out a few weeks ahead of time -- I am putting in the time and location of each night's welcome reception. (Since it's an AI, I didn't want to spend extra money). So one night it will be the Lobby Bar, one night the Beach Bar, etc etc etc. And I will have the OOT Bags to hand out to the new arrivals each night.

Seagrape is $10 per person and includes open bar for 3 hours. I am having it from 8-11pm, so hopefully people will eat beforehand.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
