Wedding Reception Ideas for 30 People?

Recommended Posts

Hi and thanks in advance for any assistance! I am getting married Oct. 15th at Aventura Spa Palace. We are having 30 people. I want a really fun wedding reception party that evening but am afraid we are too small a wedding party for a DJ? Thoughts? Also, any other ideas that would be fun for a group of 30 for wedding reception? I thought a boatride party like Carribean Carnival would be fun but they don't run that on Saturdays (only the pirate one).

 

Thank you!

We have roughly 25 people including us, and we are doing a reception. Small or big - I want a beach party...so we're going for it.

I've only shot one wedding at the Aventura Spa Resort. Im not sure if they have changed their resort policy yet, but we were told they did not allow any outside vendors but allowed us on the one time.

I have gone on a rented catamaran with a small group for the wedding. You have to remember that this will take up a fair chunk of time to get everybody organized, transported to the boat, tour and back again... so this may be something to think about.

While this is a great idea to gather everybody for an adventure... my only suggestion would be to organize it on a different day than your wedding. Take your wedding day in as it unfolds and enjoy every minute of it. Don't try and do too much. There is already enough going on that you need some time to even relax... especially on your wedding day. Even if its for 20 minutes. Everybody always loves the cocktail hour! That is my only advice.

Kim- I got married almost 2 months ago and had 36 people (including B&G) and let me tell you, we PARTIED!!! my reception was sooo much fun. We hired DJ Doremixx and he kept the party going! so believe me, if you have a partying crowd, then you can have the best reception ever no matter if it's 10 people or 100! good luck! =)

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
