ROR Big weddings...

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married January 19th, and curious if anyone on here had a large wedding?? We're bringing about 100 people, and Chandlyn said a restaurant couldn't accomodate that many people. If thats the case, then what have other brides done on here??

 

Thanks!

Kristin

I know Lizz had a big wedding, like 80 people i think and she was in the plantation. Mammee Bay where they have the free receptions is not that big, but the plantation has upstairs and downstairs. Maybe you could do a beach reception.

I had 85 guests at my wedding and we fit in the downstairs at the Plantation no problem. I can easily see fitting 100 there. If for some reason they won't let you do that (which you should complain about), you can have your reception on the beach.

 

Also, Marcia had at least 100 guests (if I'm remembering correctly?) and hers was in the Plantation a few days before mine.

We just don't want to pay that much, she said it would be $55 per person for the beach that's just waaay to much to pay for 100 ppl. We wanted to get the free dinner at the plantation, then have the beach reception afterwards. If you wedding includes dinner for your guests then it should be included, right??

Isn't the only way you can get the free dinner is if you go to Mammee Bay? Don't you have to pay to rent the Plantation? (I may have missed something along the way)

 

I do agree, if you are to have a "free dinner" it should be accommodated somehow regardless of the number of people in your group.

My understanding is that the only "free reception" offered at ROR is at Mammee Bay for groups less than 50 people. If you have more than 50 you will have to pay for some sort of private reception.

 

Previously it has cost $500/ 2 hours to rent out the Plantation. The $500 includes the space and dinner for the group. (not sure about a bar though?). There are also options to upgrade the menu, but I believe the $500 covers a basic one for your group. Brides have rented the Plantation for 2 hours and then moved on to Seagrape or the Disco. Others have rented the Plantation for 4 hours ($1000) and had the dancing portion there as well. You can have a dj for $150/hour I think.

 

Also just wanted to make sure you know that for the beach (Seagrape) reception... if you want open bar it will cost $10/person.
