Help! Is it poor taste to have my reception at the all-inclusive resort's restaurant?

Recommended Posts

That's what we are doing! We are having 19 guests total -so we are doing a semi-private dinner at one of the restaurants (with food included) and then renting a private space after dinner for the cutting and dancing!

I held a private welcome dinner at my resort for our guests (my wedding was off resort property.) Anyways, everyone told me it was a waste of money and tried to convince me to just cancel it so we could just all meet in the buffet. Well geez- I wish I would have saved the money to do that. I was trying to give them a special treat and everyone thought I was just doing too much.

 

Point of my ramblings- I don't think it looks cheap. Your guests won't care and probably will think it's silly if you paid to make it private.

We were also going to do this, as it is included in the wedding package, then we were going to have a party when we got hope, because we didn't think many people would come abroad with us. However, most of the family are coming now! So we aren't having a party back home, but paying extra to have the outdoor private reception at the hotel!

 

I don't see anyone minding that you have your reception at the hotel. Thats the reason people go all inclusive!!

We stayed at the Barcelo. They have their private dinner on their master suite's terrace. It was beautiful, but I wish now I wouldn't have spent the $500 on it.
