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!

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! =)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
