I was just wondering if anybody out there has planed or is planning a dw for more then 60 people...My Fi and I have extremely large family's, we knew we wanted a dw, even though it would be big but now were worried that this might be getting out of control? Any help would be great, we have a guest list of 150+ people and we already know over 50 will be coming...are we over our heads?

We might make it up to 60 people (I actually hope we don't!). Not because of the out of control thing but we just wanted a small wedding and because of the reception cost. There are quite a few gals that I've seen who have had up to 80 or so and they had a fabulous time. Depends on your group of people I guess! Just don't feel responsible for all of them, that's the part that would get me I think!

We have large families... we will likely have a larger Mexico wedding. We are sending out invites to over 300 people.

 

... we are planning on doing our wedding at Moon Palace because you can "earn" private functions with a certain number of rooms booked.

 

I just responded to you on that thread -- in your case, I'd definitely get a TA to help handle the logistics of all the people.

 

Hope that helps.

We just sent out our STD's last week to over 200 people. Although many people are excited and told us they'll come, I think when it comes down to it, we'll have less than half (50-100).

We also wanted a large wedding but after doing calculations of all the expenses we are hoping we can cut it to at least 25-30 and do everything I want including little things that are pointless to have but will just make the wedding a little special. We decided to splurge on gifts for our guests and have an open bar all night. It gets pretty pricey

I'm curious what reception venues you all used to accomodate up to 100 guests? I posted the question but got no replies. We are planning a site visit to Playa del Carmen in mid-August and do not plan on staying at a large AI resort so we're looking for restuarants, event centers, beachclubs...

 

Thanks!

We're expecting about 100 and we're having it at the Hilton in Cancun. It's not an AI and they have plenty of room!

 

The Marriots would be great, too!

 

I'm not sure about Playa del Carmen though...

 

Good luck!

My wedding was at the FA Condesa but my guests stayed in different hotels

    • 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
