is it a bad idea to have dinner on the beach??

Recommended Posts

I really want to have my rehearsaldinner on the beach at sunset and decorate with tiki torches. I think it will be a fun experience for everyone. It just occurred to me that it gets really breezy in cancun at night and that may be a problem with the food. Has anyone had dinner at night on the beach or attended someone else's?? Should I be concerned with the wind blowing sand in people's food??

I think you will be fine. Lots of people have dinner on the beach! I've never been to Cancun though but I've seen a bunch of girls on here with weddings and dinners on the beach.

 

I had our reception on the beach in Puerto Vallarta and it was amazing - people loved it.

I think the beach will be fine, and will give your guests something they have never experienced before. Im not 100% positive on this, but I think that most of the beach dinners are done buffet style.

A beach dinner sounds like fun. In Puerto Vallarta we had a bonfire on the beach and a private dinner on the beach and both were fabulous. Your guests will like whatever you decide!

I can't speak from personal experience but I don't think that it's a bad idea at all. I actually picked the Royal in PDC b/c of all of the great things I heard about their beach reception. If you're concerned about the cold, you could consider giving inexpensive pashminas to your female guests as the wedding favor. I've been to the riviera maya in Jan and it was cool on the beach at night but would have been perfect dancing weather :-)

I don't think it should be a problem. I've never been to a dinner on a beach but I would think if many people complained about sand in their food or too much wind, the resorts would stop offering dinners on the beach.

thanks ladies! Feel so much better now. I also think it will be something cool that my guests have never experienced before. Most of my family/friends are coming from NYC and Texas so they've definetly never experienced that before, especially with the whole family together:)

 

My wedding is in April so i don't think it will necessarily be cold...it was more the wind blowing sand in the food that I was concerned with. I just went to Cancun two weeks ago for my site visit and there was an awesome breeze at night but it was not cold. It was just a nice warm breeze.

We actually had a romantic dinner on the beach during our honeymoon and it was fine. It was REALLY windy and we had no problems with sand in our food. I'd say go for it!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
