Reception after wedding

Recommended Posts

Okay so I may be premature on this , I don't have a appt to speak with my WC until the end of July, I am a planner and panicker and my wedding is July 31st 2012. Still 8 months away but feels like every day is trickling by and if something is not completed that day I feel like I am wasting time.

Ok any who, I was wondering what some brides did after their Sandals wedding. I am expecting about 20 guest so I do think that I want to have the sit down dinner I think it was $50 a person, all my guest are most deffiently staying at the resort, so what did everyone do after, did you go dancing with your group did you do something special. My wedding is at 4pm so I'm assuming that the dinner will be around 5:30 or so and than that will run till like 7:30 , that just seems so early.... any suggestions!!

My sister is getting married there at 4pm on June 19th.  (I am June 21st so our family could be at both weddings) She's going to also do the 2 hour reception and we figured since by then it would already be after 7pm that most people would probably end up just hanging around and partying with each other anyway.  We are all staying at BSB so it makes it easy to get back to the room after celebrating all night!  We do have kids that will be there too so unless the bride and groom ditch the kids for the night going out to a club is off the table for them. 

Good luck with your planning!!

We went with the 1 hour cocktail reception after our ceremony. We had 16 guests and  our wedding was suppose to be at 3 but it rained an hour before the wedding and it was pushed back to 4 . I don't think 5:30 is too early for dinner. Happy planning!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
