We are going to have diffrent tours in our gift bags with prices if they wanted to do that, but we are going to plan things that don't cost money at the resort such as a beach vollyball game or things like that which would be tons of fun for those staying at the resort

Hey ladies... I am getting married at the Grand Lido Negril. The first night we are reserving a few tables for guests that arrive early for a Welcome dinner (al inclusive, no additional cost to us. The night before we are having our 'rehearsal diner' however invited all guests and having a jamaican themed beach party where we will pay about $5 per head for buffet and full bar on a sectioned off part of the beach. we are also thinking of hiring a steel drum band or fire swallower for a few hours. Sat for the wedding we are having a private reception again $55 per person 5 hour buffet open bar. we are hiring a DJ. we are sooo looking forward to it.

We are just going to do activites that the resort has such as beach volly ball game or something like that, however wants to play can join in. I don't want to have too have our guests pay for something outside the resort being that they have paid enough to be there.

I don't know if your all-inclusive resort has a-la-carte restaurants, but mine did, and everynight we had reservations to different ones. It made everyone feel as if they were at a fancy restaurant and we were picking up the tab! But it's an all inclusive so it's free!! lol

 

During the daytime they did whatever they wanted. Many just enjoyed the beach or pool on their own. They loved the fact we got together as a group for dinner. Especially sine afterwards, we'd hit the bar/club as a group as well.

I was able to do 1 excursion with a group of 12, 2 days after the wedding. It's hard to get everyone to agree.

Most of our guest are saying for a 5 days, Monday to Friday so Monday when we arrive we are going to have a cocktail party, possibly dinner on Tuesday (haven't decided yet) and the wedding on Wednesday. Thats all I have decided to plan out for people. I realize it is there vacation and they should have the right to enjoy it themeselves.

I agree...It was just a question, that I thought we could discuss.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
