Private Reception...is there such a thing?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

My FI and I are just about to book our date with the resort. We have to put down a 10% deposit to hold our date.....no biggie.

 

I am trying to find out thou, if we can have a reception. Everywhere i have looked in the wedding packages, all they offer is a private dinner.

and by a reception i mean, a time where we can dance, have a time to do speaches ect.

 

We are having our wedding at Gran Bahia Principe. in Punta Cana.

So if anyone knows any info, pls pls let me know! thanks a bunch!

Not sure about that resort specifically but I do know they are offered. I've seen them called private events though more often than not.

hmmm not sure about that particular resort. However I do know that arrangements can be made at other resorts for a private dinner, which you would have to pay for. My FI and I aren't too fussy about it being private but for a rehearsal / get together dinner we are just planning on booking space in one of the restaurant for all of our guests.

 

Our resort allows for private rentals for about 500 - 700 $ if I remember correctly your safest bet would be to bug your wedding co-ordinator about it and hopefully you'll get a timely response.

 

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Most of the hotels do offer private receptions and I believe Bahia Principe does too. It might help to repost your question and put Bahia Prinicpe in the title section. that way former BP brides would catch it quicker and provide you with a timely answer.

Hi there,

 

I'm getting married at the Gran Bahia Punta Cana on Nov 17 2010. They do offer a private reception as well. Their private dinner pretty much is the reception as well. It is from 6:30-10:30. The cost varies depending on the number of guests you have. I think it is $600 for 30 ppl or less. But you can have time for speeches and to dance. You can bring your own music... with a laptop and rent speakers from them for example, or you can rent their DJ ($500 for sound and lights)

 

Hope this was helpful. If you have other questions, just let me know, and if i know the answer, i"ll gladly help :)

 

Take care

I'm sure that they do but you could always go with the Jellyfish Restuarant and have it to yourself by renting the entire place for your wedding. Happy Planning!
