Farewell Brunch: Mandatory?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Is it mandatory to do a farewell brunch for a destination wedding? We are hosting events on thurs-sat with wedding on sat. We are planning an afterparty and I honestly don't expect to sleep that night at all. I'd rather sleep in but is this rude?

in my opinion, there are no rules for DW's ... I did not have a brunch the next morning and in fact, my husband and I went to Havana that morning as a little get away from the resort and our guests.. its up to u what you want to do... but i dont think that, that is necessary

not mandatory as far as I'm concerned. many guests probably want to sleep in too.

 

We had breakfast with some guests, but it was just because they were up & we were up. Then we had a 2nd breakfast a few hours later and ate with some other guests. It was all very casual & we'd just run into each other at the buffet.

 

I didn't want a lot of structure so we could all just relax.

We aren't doing one, we are doing our TTD session the next day and I just don't want to feel rushed into planning a breakfast as well. I don't think they are mandatory and you pretty much say thank you to everyone the night before! We are doing a welcome dinner though.

the only thing mandatory about ANY wedding as far as im concerned is saying I DO! that being said, its all a matter of personal preference. if you want one, do it! if you dont, dont! :)

Agreed, not mandatory. We are having a welcome dinner. But we're doing ttd almost all day they next day so we may do a lunch w/ everyone cause alot of our guests are leaving that next morning (second morning after wedding), or a BBQ or something.

We aren't planning one either. I just want everyone to enjoy their vacation and just need them to be around on our wedding day for sure! lol

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
