We are doing the same thing, no BM/GM, just the 2 of us with maybe 10 people. We are going to have a cocktail hour while we are doing after wedding pics on the beach our guests can enjoy themselves while we are off taking our pics. We are going to do a private dinner after the cocktail hour, they, Excellence Playa Mujeres, close 2 of their restaurants every night, so we will have our dinner in a closed one so it is private. Since it is an all-inclusive, it will on be an additional $14.00 per person for each event, so we thought that would be nice for everyone and not cost us too much either. :-) After the dinner, we are just going to play it by ear.
I hope this helps you, I was wondering what to do as well, but I am happy with our plan.

We weren't planning a traditional reception because of the small number of people but what do we do after the ceremony? Do you still have a reception? Just go eat at one of the restaurants? (we're in an AI) Just curious how other small groups are handling things. I feel like we'll have the cermony and then I'll say "Now what?"

I think this is the way to go and I like everyone else's ideas posted above as well!

2PM Wedding (actually started at 2:30 since MIL was 20 minutes late)
3:00-4:30 Social Hour with Mariachis, we took pictures during this time
4:45-6:15 Food, toasts, thank yous and cake
6:30 or so - we watched the sunset from the room of the house
7:00 or so - we all hit the pool and hot tub
We kept it super simple... I was worried about having a father daughter dance, cake cutting, all the other traditional things people do, but we really only had a little push back from MIL when we didn't cut the cake in front of everyone. I think the key is to keep things flowing. People liked that it wasn't a traditional wedding.

We're having 9 people at our wedding, but it's at 4 p.m. Our package includes a cocktail hour w/ apps for our guests to enjoy while we're taking pics and then we're going to have a private and intimate dinner w/ our family. We'll do one 1st dance, but not dj or dance floor, just our ipods or maybe a friend's guitar.
