Hi! Does anyone have any recommendations on restaurants/ bars at the resort where guests can meet for drinks after the ceremony? I've decided not to have a private cockail party anymore, but I was hoping to suggest a place where everyone can go and mingle while my FI and I get our pictures taken... I was planning on putting this cocktail location on our 'schedule of events" for the wedding day, in attempt to direct people and keep things somewhat organized.

Lots of options. Depending on where and when you get married I would suggest the following. If your wedding is on the beach late in the afternoon, there is a bar right on the beach. However there is not much seating, other than the wedding chairs or beach lounge chairs. Just above the beach is the bar on the back side of the Mexican restaurant-called Cantina Zocalo. Beautiful setting , lots of chairs and an ocean view. I would suggest here. If your guests are all adults you could also suggest Wave bar. The bar on the rear side of the adult pool. Lots of tables and chairs and starting about 6 pm they usually have live music(guitar, saxophone, etc)

Murmel - Thanks, I think Cantina Zocalo sounds perfect!

 

Jess - I actually got this informal cocktail party idea from other brides on BDW as well as this thread! I just don't see the point in paying for a private cocktail party at an all inclusive resort, so we're saving a lot by doing this.

Yea I didn't really either but I didn't want my guest to just be wandering around with nothing to do before the reception. I'm still thi king about changing but I already had the invites worked on. The lady is just working on the physical proof the mail me. I think changing now would cause an extra fee. Which I guess would still be cheaper than the whole cocktail party... Hmmm I guess I'll ask my fi and see what he thinks.

Has anyone heard any reviews on the s'mores welcome party? I have only seen one bride who has done it so far. We are considering doing this instead of the rehersal dinner at soon. Any thoughts or suggestions?

We did the s'mores party and our guests had a great time! A ton of food and your own personal bartender for 2 hrs- well worth the $15 per person.

I think it would be worth it to change the invites too!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
