    Hey Girls!! I need some ideas!! Our wedding is at 1pm and we are only doing the 1 hour reception. So, we'll have the whole day, after pictures, to hang out and celebrate. What can we do!? We have thought about going to Rick's Cafe, but don't really know if we want a full on bar scene. We don't want to spend a fortune, either. Any suggestions?

      Personally I like Rick's and I think we may have our rehearsal dinner there. Everytime I have been there it didn't turn into more of the bar scene until later in the night. Yes, it does get crowded around dinner because everyone wants to see the sun set, but the rowdiness didn't really start until a little later on. But it's all a matter of personal preference.

      What are you looking to do after the reception? Do you want to just move to another restauarant type atmosphere? Kuyaba on the Beach has good food from what I remember, or you can look at the restaurant at the Rock House. If you want something a little more active, look into going to YS Falls - it's really beautiful.

      Or after the reception, you could let everyone have a little break to go swimming, take a nap (you and your new husband can have some alone time!) or whatever they want to do, and then maybe meet up later on in the evening to have dinner and then dancing?

        Yes, Beaches is also allowing guests to take the photos with a minumum night stay!

        Your travel agent should be able to assist you with the requirement!

            Here is the information from the resort on the private cruise they offer. It would be more private than going to Rick's, but is kinda pricey. It would be something different to do after the ceremony. We looked into doing it instead of having a rehearsal dinner.
            There is also a beach bbq/party one night a week at the resort. You could look into what night it is held and maybe it would be the same as your wedding. Then you wouldn't have to pay extra for your guests to have a great beach party.

              Thank you Jennifer!! And if you had anything to do with getting them to bend the rules a little bit - an even bigger thank you!!! This seriously could have been a deal breaker for me if wouldn't be able to use the photographer of my choice and I may have ended up moving to a different resort.

              I'm not able to open the attachment but would love to see the info. Am I still new on the boards and that's why?

                  Thanks for posting the details Sherri! The price is close to what it would cost to do the private dinner, so it's not a bad alternative. I'll have to try and see if I can get opinions from anyone who has booked this before.

                    I am also new and also interested with your experience... I've read that you can't use outside vendors, I'm mostly concerned about photography.

                      Check out the post above by TA Jennifer. It sounds like Beaches will now allow you to bring in an outside photographer if they are staying at the resort for a minimum number of nights. I haven't been able to touch base with our WC just yet to get details but once I do, I'll provide more details for y'all :)
