I am not sure what to do for my guests regarding having a welcome dinner/rehearsal. I think we have decided not to have a private dinner for our reception since we are only having 10 people for our wedding, so our reception will be the free dinner at the resort. My question is what should I do the night before the wedding, do I host another dinner at the resort, private cocktail reception (which might look odd since there is only 10 of us) or don't do anything? I feel like I should do something since everyone is spending so much to be at my wedding!

 

Any advice?

Thanks,

Jennifer

I am also getting married at EDR with under 12 people - so was wondering what other people were doing. Does anyone know where I can find info on smaller cocktail style parties? I have also been thinking about doing an excursion - again, does anyone know the cost of visiting one of the nearby ruins - Tulum for example?

Thanks

how about working off the cuff - ask people to meet you in the bar ask what people fancy doing and then they aren't under any pressure to go and neither are you

 

Then take it from there

I would think that for 10 people, you don't need to do a private cocktail reception, you can just all meet at one of the bars. We went to dinner with about 10-12 people at La Isla after our private cocktail party and got seated pretty quickly too.

 

If you had enough money, I'd agree with the others and do an excursion. Whether a catamaran close by or a trip to Tulum, depending on how long your guests are staying.

I agree with this.
Especially since with most DW, and I know at EDR, you dont do a rehersal of any sorts.
I dont think people would expect anything either.

If you want to do something
I think an excursion, meeting at one of the bars on the grounds (a dinner you might not be seated together from what I have read), and/or going to a resturant off site are all great ideas!

    • 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?
