        Anyone planning an after the wedding reception?  I wasn't originally thinking of doing one, but now I'm thinking about it.  Any thoughts?  I'm worried about cost.

          It's so funny that you posted this question! I have subscribed to this thread but haven't been on here for months and just happened to click on it today :) I have confirmed my date at the majestic on 12-4-13, symbolic 5pm on the beach. We are very concerned about cost as well so we were going to skip the reception. After doing some thinking we have decided to have the ceremony, a non private dinner, and then a private 3 hr reception at the parrots bar. With the package, renting the pool side area, and a dj it was only like $3000 all together which I didn't think was terrible. And we thought it would be worth it to give our guests a small private party and we could have the traditional speeches, first dance, etc :) hope this helps!!

            Oops.  I was unclear.  I meant upon returning home ... for the guests that can't come on the trip!

              I have been going about adding everything up and was confused about some of the pricing details. We are doing the same ( semi private dinner and reception) cab you tell me what you included in your reception? any add ons like lights dance floor ect? The private recp option comes with a sound system, yet it is added into each of the options, I am so lost.

                It is so confusing! It took me forever to get it. When you're looking at the sheet, it talks about a private reception "custom" and then a reception "package". Depending on how many people you are having and what you are wanting, either option might work best. In the pre-packaged you get the location, basic set up, sound system to play your own music, and national open bar for all of your guests. For me, I didn't care for the selection on the national open bar and I wanted a live DJ/MC to control the music. So I went with the custom package. We are renting the space for $300, the cocktail package (instead of national open bar) for $4 per person per hour, 1 bartender for $10/hr, DJ for $550, 2 wireless mics for speeches for $30 each, and the screen and projector for $290. We aren't too worried about the light up dance floor and some of the other options. Although after some consideration, we might have to go with one of the decoration packages so that I don't have to worry about putting someone in charge of going in and decorating the tables (although it's SO expensive!!) oh....and depending on the budget and my ability to convince my fianc© ....we might hire the fire dancers :)

                    We plan to have an at home reception but something VERY simple and casual. Our plan is to rent out a pavilion at our local park and just have more of a party- bring in a casual catered meal, provide drinks, have some games, etc. Not a typical reception, just a celebration! It will only cost us around $1,000-$1,500- $250 to rent the space for the day with the rest being spent on food and drinks.
