      Our resort offers a reception for $30/person. I think that is crazy considering it is an all-inclusive resort. I'm going to ask them to rope off a section of one of the restuarants so that we can make sure we all eat together.

        we are running into that at least so far, as far as numbers. I didnt want to pay for a reception to begin with, because the resort is all inclusive; I dont think we should have to pay extra.. so with that being said, we are just going to let them know ahead of time that we have a semi large group who all would like to eat together and just have them set up the tables together or have us all very close to another. I really think that this will be fine. Good luck to you!

          I am only having a small group also. We are inviting everyone, but less than 20 are coming. We are at an all inclusive resort in Aruba and we are going to have the reception in one of the restaurants. We are also going to try and go out to a place that night for dancing and drinks after we eat so we can still celebrate without having a private reception.

            MeganMarie, we only had 15 people total and were able to have a private beach reception. I don't think that should be a problem, unless someone else is getting married the same day as you and has requested the beach bbq. If you are planning a reception in one of the restaurants, your other option is to ask Yaly about sectioning off an area in the restaurant just for you and your guests. I know that they have done that for other weddings. That makes it a little more of a private affair.

                I am sure they can just give you a small section in a restaurant or patio. I've seen them done this before.

                  I only have one piece of advice. Remember to TIP -- this can be the encouragement that is needed to make your day perfect. Money talks.
