Cancun Mexico â€“ Guest Event Suggestions Needed
Posted 10 October 2009 - 10:38 PM
Is it proper etiquette and or required for the bride and groom to host an event other then the wedding when doing a destination wedding?
An example I read about was a day trip to one of the Mexican Ruins or renting a cameraman for a few hours.
If yes, who is required to pay?
I have heard you are not required to pay for anyone just inform your guest of your plans and let them attend if they are interested. I have also heard you must pay for your entire guest list that wishes to attend. Lastly, I have read about an option were you pay for your wedding party and family then offer all other guest the option to attend and to RSVP by sending a check for their entrance with their reply card in the invitation (is this tacky?).
We are having our wedding on a Saturday evening in Cancun. Does anyone have any suggestions of an event for us to host? We are staying at an all inclusive resort so I do not want to do a meal for most of our guests have already paid to eat there. I am hoping to find some kind of activity.

At the Hotel
- Spa Day for girls
- Salsa Lessons for couples
- Cooking Lessons for Girls (can be Mexican food or favors to be set up on the Wedding Day)
- Tea Time for Girls
- Mexican Party (Mexican Fair)
- Mayan Village Theme Party or Mayan blessing for the group
- Beach Party
- Beach BBQ
Outside the Hotel:
- Catamaran/ Sunset Cruise
- Fishing trip for Men
- Golf Day for Men
- Snorkeling Tour
- Charity Event/ Helping a local community in need or eco friendly activity
- Mayan Ruins (Chichen itza, Tulum)
- Traditional Event at an Hacienda
- Night Club/ Show
Many of these ideas can be used as Bridal Showers, Bachelor/ette Parties, Welcome Events, Greet & Meet Events, Rehearsal Events or just to share unforgettable moments with your friends and family!
Please, let me know if you need more information in any item.
Good Luck and best wishes!

TheOneDay: The guy's trip is being organized by the Best Man (hooray!). I think they are going fishing and snorkeling, and I am fairly sure that frosty adult beverages will be served. I'm not even worrying about it. As long as they show up to the wedding (not even the welcome dinner!), I'll be happy. haha
When my FMIL heard that the boys were having a party, she felt left out so she wanted to plan a "Ladies Lunch". She keeps adding on events, which is a bit maddening, but at least our guests will have something to do! Plus, I'm glad SOMEONE is excited about my wedding! I would have been fine just having my own private spa day, but I need to take advantage of seeing friends and family that have made the trek down. Plus, on a personal level I need to get out of my introverted shell.
Also, since we are getting married in Tulum, the day of our Welcome Dinner, during the day, we are meeting people at the ruins, getting some guides and going in for a tour. That's an easy option for us b/c we are just down the road, and if people show up, great, if not, then we'll go by ourselves. I'm pretty sure that people will show up, however.
So it goes:
Thursday -- Gender-specific events
Friday -- am Tulum ruins / pm Welcome Dinner
Saturday -- pm Wedding / Reception
Sunday -- sleep, sleep and more sleep hahaha
Sorry so long, but I can't stop thinking about all of this...

That is so great you were engaged at the Tulum Ruins! How romantic! I love it there, and I'm so glad that we are getting married in such a magical place (on the beach, too bad we can't do it at the ruins themselves).
Are you sure you want my wedding party? They have been great, but trust me, I have had my share of headache and tears...
