We haven't planned anything for after dinner, couldn't afford the beach reception. I think we'll see how things go once we're there and just pick a place for all our guests to meet after dinner. Socialize, maybe hit the disco. I hear there is a place where you can provide a CD to the band and they will play a couple of songs of your choice for a first dance/family dance. Who knows? I'm kind of leaving it to chance. Since we're having an at home reception, we don't relly feel like we're ripping people off by not having an event planned. It'll be spontaneous.
How many people are you at? When are you getting married? I told her I expect about 47, and they agreed to the Fondue stipulation. If it were over 50, I don't know if I'd be as confidant...

So Annoying!! Especially since she won't "promise" me the restaurant. She keeps saying when I know my numbers she will talk to her manager. Grrr....We aren't going to know our numbers for probably another 3 months! We have 30 confirmed and booked, but we are expecting between forty and fifty. It is really hard to know exactly how many in tough times like this when peoples situations are changing daily. We aren't doing a reception when we get home. We are planning to rent a catamaran either the day before or the day after the wedding and take all our guests out snorkeling and cruising. We figure that we'd rather shell out the money on that than on the $85 pp beach reception We are getting married January 21, 2010. How about you guys?

I think if you make a big enough stink when it comes down to time to book the restaraunt, you'll win in the end. Afterall, none of this was revealed to you prior to booking the trip and providing the info to your guests. And you ARE bringing a lot of business their way. At this point you could even threaten taking your wedding elsewhere as I assume your final payments have not yet been made. The threat may be enough to get them to cooperate.
Good luck with it!!

how much is the catamaran per person? We were also thinking about doing something like that. I wonder if it would be possible to do the wedding on a boat, taking the business away from the resort, as they seem to want to charge for everything any way...
