Drinks at the Reception

Recommended Posts

HI Everyone,

 

Hoping someone can give me some insight into the drink situation for wedding receptions. Since the RIU is an all inclusive resort I was under the assumption that all drinks would be included during the week we are staying at the resort....including our wedding reception. I have read however that you need to pay $10/person for an open bar during the reception. Are there any alcoholic beverages included during the reception? Does this mean that whats available is limited unless you pay? Does anyone know?

 

Thanks

Alcoholic drinks are not included in your free reception at Mammee Bay. If you want an open bar, then it is $10 per person. In addition to non-alcoholic beverages, I think only wine is included, free of charge, in the reception dinner at Mammee Bay.

 

We decided not to pay for an open bar & we're glad that we didn't. Mammee Bay is close to the bar, which is next to the disco. When people wanted a drink, they simply went to the bar. If one guest was going, they would bring back multiple drinks for our other guests. Also, we were lucky enough to have the waiter even go get drinks for us. So we were able to avoid paying $10 per person for an "open bar".

Thank you. As long as wine is included than I don't see a need to pay extra for an open bar during dinner personally. We bought the Caprice package and it includes sparkling wine for the main toast only. Just wanted to ensure there were at least come options (preferably wine) available for dinner. Thanks so much ladies

Just double check with Chandlyn to make sure the wine is included. You may also want to ask what brand it is just to make sure it's something you're familiar with. I remember a guest having wine but they didn't quite like it.

well if a bar is right here, then i guess people will just have to get up and get stuff from there if they want to drink!!! kinda sucks, but whatever...im already paying 15/person for the after dinner reception for ppl to drink so im not going to pay another 10 so they can get drinks waited on them for dinner, esp if the bar is right there!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
