    A couple questions... I did a search and didn't really find what I was lookin' for!

    What does one do if you have too many people for the Welcome Dinner (over 35ppl) but don't want to pay for a private event?? I really wanted to just do the welcome dinner at one of the restaurants and make it easy, but I think I'm going to be juuuuust over. (Including Bride and Groom we have 36 booked, are expecting 3 more but unsure.) I need help!

    Also, what does one do for an after party in Playa del Carmen?? Easy transport or even by foot from The Royal? At the Royal? I'm trying to figure out what to do with my guests afterward because I'm pretty positive that my group will not be done by 10-11pm! Haha.

    Thanks in advance! :)

      I am kind of wondering the same thing. It looks like we will have about 50 people, but want to do some kind of welcome dinner - off the resort. But obviously I don't want to go overboard with costs.

      Then our reception begins at 6:00 and will probably go until 10:00 but I am sure some of us will want to continue the celebration afterwards!

        I think that we will take our after party to Blue Parrot. Our reception is at 6pm on a Friday night and the Blue Parrot is known to have an excellent fire show on the beach on Friday's. From what I understand you can have a welcome party at Maries at the Gran Porto for 10$ a person. Not sure if this price difference is in your price range. I would check with your WC to make sure this price is accurate

          I'm doing my welcome dinner at Maries at the Gran and it is $15/person. I have 37 including me and the groom and my wedding coordinator hasn't told me no...she went ahead and booked it out.

            Thanks for the replies! We have 38 confirmed for Marie's, $15/pp talked to Angie today and she said that was fine, and if we end up with more guests or not enough room they might move us to another restaurant.

            Thanks for the info on the Blue Parrot!
