ROR Past Brides
Posted 05 October 2009 - 08:37 AM
Im debating over what to do after dinner, our dinner is at Mamme Bay at 6:30-originally we were going to have a reception follwoing dinner, and have a dj etc....but now Im having second thoughts. Theres 30 in our group-Im wondering if perhaps we should just head to a bar or go to the disco.......I dont want to bore my guests either......and really, there's nothing traditional about this wedding--so Im leaning towards canceling the reception.......
any ideas? How do the past brides feel? Was the reception a must? Was it important to you?
Im wondering if maybe we can set up some tables in the disco for our group when it opens.........funny--because all this stuff was so important to me back a year ago when I started planning....but now everything is adding up, and Im very overwhelmed.........

We had our dinner at Mammee Bay at 6:30 and then at 9:30 we rented the disco for a private party. It's $200 for 2 hours. The DJ is included as well as a bartender. We had a blast. We did the traditional first dances and then everyone partied. I would recommend this option for sure.

I actually am 99% sure we are having our wedding at the Riu Ocho Rios in May 2011. I just emailed Chandlyn last week. I want to rent out the disco after dinner. The price went up a little, $250 for 2 hours including dj and open bar. She also said it can go up for next year. I think the idea is great. Let me know what you end up deciding.

While we enjoyed having it privately, the party really did get much better once the disco opened up to the public. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't change a thing.
In terms of tables being set up in there, I'm not sure if you'd be able to do that. There really isn't room for any tables. The bar takes up a bit of space and then there are barstools along the bar & along the outside walls of the disco, then there's the dance floor & the DJ's booth. You could talk to Chandlyn about tables but again, the space might be too tight.
Definitely take some time & browse through some past ROR threads. There are tons that discuss the DJ & other reception options such as the poolside reception & using Seagrape.

We just had some drinks at the bar, watched a bit of the show and went to the disco when it opened at 11 - still had a blast. Wouldn't change a thing.
