Cancun welcome dinner ideas?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - I am new and looking for ideas! I am going on a scouting trip next week to Cancun. We are looking at the Marriotts and a couple of other places for the ceremony and reception. I don't have any ideas yet on a welcome/rehearsal dinner. We will likely have about 100-120 guests. Is anyone planning a welcome dinner in the Cancun area for a big group? I'd love to get your thoughts. Thanks!!

The marriott is gorgeous!!!! I loved the gazebo, I'm having my religious ceremony there.. I posted some pics in my review thread..

I don't think I'll have a welcome dinner since I have more than 200 guests.. If I have it'll be a pay yourself dinner.. blush2.gif

Thanks Anny - I saw your pictures of the Marriott gazebo, they are amazing! We are discussing dates with them right now to see if they have availability for winter 2008.

Yes, I think we'll check out everything within walking distance of the Casa Magna Marriott (including the JW)...I will definitely pass on anything useful when I get back.

We are also looking for maybe a few restaurants to have a "meeting" place outside of the resort. We and all 40 of our guests are staying at Dreams Cancun and I will be very interested to see what you think when you get back from your site visit! Make sure you let us know when you get back!

Good question. I guess I'd like to stick to the Cancun area because I think we'll need to transport our guests if it's not in walking distance, and the farther we go, probably the more expensive. I would love ideally to find something in the Hotel Zone that is walkable or an easy bus ride. I imagine it would be harder to find a restaurant in the center of Cancun that can accommodate a big group and microphones for speeches, etc., though that would probably be a lot of fun if we could.

I'm sure when you visit the hotel zone that you'd be able to find restaurants that can accomodate your party. Also, try talking to the coordinator at the resort you're staying. They can probably offer you plenty of good suggestions. Good luck!

    • 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?
