I think its a great idea to have your dinner a bit earlier - like 5ish and do the mango walk (or other location) until 10:30. Its not too big, but not very classy decor. Its a typical club - but you'll have an awesome stereo and lighting system.

But I feel like 10 pm is pretty early to call it a night, and I would like a PRIVATE reception to go a bit later into the night, like midnight at least. I'm not sure if it makes sense to have a DJ and dancing if we have to clear out by 10 pm. Am I missing something? How is everyone else planning the reception? Is there any way to have the reception last until midnight?

I notice a few of you have the dinner, then go to a bar for dances and speeches and then head off to the disco. Is this a must?
I dont know what your parents/older relatives are like, but mine all stuck around and stuck together on the dance floor after the club opened to the public. It actually felt more fun because there was a larger crowd and everyone was congratulating us. With only 25 people and some who dont dance, the floor was a bit empty until the public came.
I also know that the noise by-law in Jamaica doesnt allow music on the beach after 10:30pm.

While the by-law may not allow late music outside - I dont know why if you rent your own dj and system, that you couldnt rent out an inside restaurant until later than 10:30pm. Might be worth discussing with management...
