    Hi Brides,

    I am new to the forum and have enjoyed learning so quickly of what I want the wedding to be. With that being said, my wedding party will be very small <19 guests including ourselves. The wedding and reception will be held at the Somerset, YAY!!! However I need some help... Due to the small numbers, I am concerned the reception will be too relaxed, what can I do post-wedding to ensure everyone mingles, dances a little, and has a blast. I know the island is relaxed, I just don't want the guests to wander away out of boredom.

    Thanks!!

      I know we just took our I-pod but we only had 9 people with us & we all tended to just sit & talk & actually turned the music down at 1 point. When the 2 hour reception was over we all changed into something more casual & hung out at one of the bars together until about 10.

        I don't think I've ever seen people wander away out of boredom so just put that worry out of your head What's nice about a small group destination wedding is that people will be visiting and sharing experiences during their trip and will be closer because of it. You can do an ipod and as you get closer to the date see if there is anyone playing at the resort. They have a small duo/band called Nada who I play guitars and sing at the Somerset on a fairly regular basis. I know the reviews of them on trip advisor are always great.

        One thing with Provo is that entertainment changes on a regular basis. As you get closer to the date, check and see what's going on at the resort and then we can also look at the where/when/how website to see what's going on around island. You could check with Kissing Fish Catering (next door to the Somerset at Bay Bistro) and see about doing a bonfire on the beach. Hang out at O'Soleil at the Somerset which is a lovely location and listen to entertainment they may be having. Or if you have some adventurous people, grab a cab and head to Blue Hills and go to Horse Eyed Jacks. If there are gamblers in the group, you could go to the Casablanca Casino....lots of options depending on your group. If you've got lots of activities during the week (which I think you seem to be planning) I think the guests will end up visiting/dancing and enjoying being together.

        I think one of the bonuses about destination weddings is that the bride and groom's family and friends really get to know one another and form a great bond that supports everyone for the future.

          I have to agree with you Krys! My family only met my husbands family once before our wedding and they really had a great time talking to each other, hearing family stories & spending time with us. It was so much more intimate than we thought but it was awesome

            I pmed you back and Krys name it correctly it is Horse Eyed Jacks....lol...where did I get one eyed jeacks?!?! Stick with Krys she knows the haps on the island though I have to agree I don't think anyone is going to wander off out of boredom. Are you having dj William John for your reception. I've heard he is quite lively and good.

              Krys - are you out there? lol...I'm wondering if you can share any info about entertainment either at or near Beaches resort? I'm in a similar situation as the brides above, where it will be a small wedding (less than 10 probably) so we won't be doing a big private reception, but it would be nice to know that there will be something going on to keep everyone entertained that evening. I see the Beaches site lists that they have entertainment, but it doesn't really give specifics. Do they do any type of bonfire on the beach during the week? Any info you can share would be appreciated!

                Heather,

                Just saw this (last week of school this week and is a bit crazy in my house LOL). I know Beaches has constant entertainment during the week but because it is a restricted property to people on island I can't really comment on it. As for things going on around Provo, there are always things going on from full moon parties at Horse eyed Jacks to bonfires coordinated by bay bistro. As for specific events this far out, the island just isn't that organized and things change (we're very laid back). If you want to arrange something for your guests, Bay Bistro (Kissing Fish Catering) is a great option and Arlene at Horse eyed Jacks just asks that you call ahead (maybe a week or so before) to make reservations for parties of 6 or more. As we get closer to your date (around April 1 or so) you can start checking some of our events calenders. But I wouldn't worry too much now about it.

                And for your wedding/guests, you'll find that you'll really enjoy just being together and visiting (that's my experience with big and small weddings here). Beaches always has something going on around the property (but I don't think they do a bonfire). They have a staged area for nightly entertainment and I know a lot of the musicians on island have regular gigs there.

                Hope that helps.

                  Thank you Krys!!! And no, I'm definitely not trying to organize anything...at least not yet. We are a pretty laid back group and are happy to go with the flow. I was just curious about possible options available more than anything. I guess I feel responsible in a way to make sure our guests have a good time since they are traveling so far just for us :) But thank you for the info - it definitely helps.

                  Thank you Maureen! This helps as well. Like I said, the Beaches site lists that there is entertainment, but it doesn't really say what, so was more curious than anything else, and it really helps to hear from someone who has actually been there :)

                    I have the same concern.   We are planning on having a bit of entertainment, using an Ipod - we will probably dance away the night but I'm not much a speech girl. Infact - I want to stay as far away from speeches as possible. My FI's best friend will be our MC and he's hilarious - we just want it to be a big party so I'm really unsure if we should structure the evening or let it flow - hmmmmm what to do...
