Thank you for the post! Found it to be so helpful. Still currently deciding on a restaurant for a rehearsal dinner.

We've only got 13 guests coming with us and am now wondering what to do, didn't really want to pay for the wedding dinner but it's now looking like we'll have to. Any ideas most welcome

Sorry i've only just seen this!

we have changed from El Caribeno now, because we went for the Brazilian (accreficles?) as we could have a semi private area on the terrace, that swung it for us!

but at El Caribeno we had 30 people and they said it was fine. no extra cost, but we did haev to choose a menu, people couldn't just order once they got there. but that's no big deal i guess!

Soo disappointed now.. I was originally planning to have my rehearsal dinner at MoMoNoHaha. WC says due to the number of guests coming, they cannot reserve more than 10 people at Los Corporales, MoMoNoHaHa or El Caribeno. I have to pick between El Manglar, Bugambilias or La Gondola. Any suggestions between the three?

Is Arrecifes not available? A lot of people like that one. I know they can handle more than 10 & you get a private terrace there. I was really hoping to have mine at El Caribeno, and my WC told me the reason I couldn't have it there was that it was booked. I'm using the dinner reservation for my welcome dinner, so I've offered to push back the welcome dinner one night (when a few more guests will be there anyway) so I can have it El Caribeno, but I haven't gotten a response yet. Woodsylou mentioned in her last post that she had planned to have her dinner (with more than 10 people) at El Caribeno, so there seems to be conflicting information coming from the WCs. I know we'd have to break into a few tables at El Caribeno, but I'd be willing to do that, but my WC hasn't gotten back to me in the last week or so to let me know if that's an option. Of the choices you have, I think I would choose Bugambilias.

I had mine at Los Corporales with about 17 to 18 people. You can get it if you are persistant!! I was told no at first too.

Hmm.. Only thing is, I have 35-40 people coming! I'm at the point wherein, I really do not care about the food. I just want a place where me and my guests could actually mingle without worrying about noise and stuff...

Yikes, that may be a bit much. I didn't invite everyone to the rehearsal dinner. Only parents and siblings.

I know... I was going to make it like a welcome dinner/rehearsal dinner. And they did say that included in the package was dinner reservation for 35 guests in a restaurant of our choice.
Anybody ever been to La Gondola or Bugambilias? I just need a place that is not too loud or too noisy.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
