    We would like to take our guests on a luau in Hawaii, but I too am concerned about the costs of taking 30-40 people. Depending on numbers I may pay for half, and have the guests pay the remainder.

      I'd love to do it but we have such a wide array of ages attending the wedding that finding an activity to suit the majority would be difficult.  And I think a lot are just coming for a 3 day weekend and some are doing Thurs-Sun and some Fri-Mon so I can't even imagine where we'd fit it in.  But our resort has soooo much to do that we'll organize some free activities on-site.

        Skp1: You are getting married at the Atlantis?! That must be so beautiful. Are you doing it on the beach or by one of the towers? The Atlantis is my favorite resort!

          we're getting married on one of the patios overlooking the property - we wanted tropical but not beach.  we've been to Atlantis about 4 times and love it - it really is beautiful...but expensive.  and our guestes seem excited about the choice.  can't wait!

              I'm thinking about doing a day cruise. Obviously depends on the numbers and cost but thought it would be a nice idea

                We have booked a fishing boat to take our guests out for the afternoon. It holds up to 70 and cost $2000. We are inviting 100 so let's hope they don't all come!

                  I love the idea of a catamaran cruise! I would love to do that for my guests, and I love the suggestion of paying for more immediate family and/or bridal party and partially paying for others who are interested in going. If my group is a reasonable size I'd love to pay for everyone, but if we end up with 30+ people, the costs could add up quickly!

                  Can't wait to marry my best friend on April 11, 2013!

                  49 Guests booked, and counting...

                    I plan on scheduling a catamaran/party cruise for everyone. I know it is asking a lot of the guests and I would not be mad if some did not want to do it. If we were to pay for anyone it would be our parents and maybe some of the bridal party. Otherwise that is a lot of money since usually, at least in DR, these type of excursions cost anywhere from $75-$100 per person, specifically the Catmaran cruise was $90 pp. At least that is how much they were when I went this past June.  But how  much fun would it be to go on one of these with everyone?? I am going to try and set it up and see how people feel about it.

                      We are considering something like this too.  But like others, we will have to see how many people attend and what we can afford to do.
