Reception Ideas (Beach vs. Booking the Disco)

Recommended Posts

no, i totally would contact her. there are about 3 weddings a day. if you are the last to put in your request, the stuff may already be booked. i would say email her sometime in advance. i don't know about this soon but sometime. also, don't worry if it takes her awhile to get back to you. give it about 2 weeks, if you don't hear anything by then, i would resend the email. oh, and dinner is usually at an assigned place, like for me it was the plantation but for other people when we were there it was Mammee bay. same menu, different location.

I am wondering the same thing. I want to do dinner at Mamee Bay and then move to Seagrape. My wedding isn't until June 12 09 but I just want to know that everything is set.

When you use the terms "beach reception" or "poolside reception" what exactly does that entail? I understand the logistics and what's included in Mammee Bay/Plantation but I'm confused on the beach reception.

Do you mean having the BBQ menu, on the beach or the poolside?

I was going to have the beach reception. I was under the impression that it meant you have your dinner at the Mammee Bay, then go to the Seagrape and you have to pay a certain amount ($10) per person. Plus you would have to pay for the entertainment (D.J. or band)

I had not heard of the poolside reception, does anyone have more information on it?

There is not too much info out there on the pool reception, but my TA walked me thru the picture of the pool and where everything would be set up. There are no pics of it at this point.

 

Round tables of 8 with white on white linen. Standard food is the BBQ menu but that can be changed. $55 (2008/2009) price per person includes alcohol. DJ is a separate cost. Hope this helps.

 

The same can be done on the beach.

My wedding is in April 09, and I recently tried to book for my reception location and it was already booked....so that kind of gives you an idea of how far maybe you should book for the reception.Also, I tried to book thru Chandlyn, but got nowhere and got a response that she will talk to me 2 months before my wedding. I got my TA is call to book our dinner at Mammee and I tried for the Seagrape but it was already booked.....so now onto plan B for me!!! (Which i dont know what that is, I think see if a poolside reception can be set up WITHOUT having a dinner)

    • 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?
