Hi there going to Playa del Carmen, Grand Riviera Princess.When we were there last spring we went to Coco Bongo (club/show).A wedding party was there.We thought that was awesome and are doing it as well instead of traditional dance after dinner.Its about $100/pp for the full deal there is grp discount but not sure how much yet.Whats the rules with this? We pay?Pay 50% or have guests pay? Please advise thanks

I think you can do whatever works for you.  I'd say traditionally you would pay, but if that's not an option and it's something you really want to do, explore your options!

Personally I would be offended if I paid/traveled to Mexico for a destination wedding, and then was asked to pay $100pp to go to a club/show as the reception. I wouldn't ask an invited guest to pay for their dinner at the reception, and I really don't view this differently.

 

Just my opinion...

Preferably the couple would pay but if its optional and not your 'main reception' then I think the guests can pay. So you have the ceremony, dinner or whatever with the first dances etc, and then whoever wants to go on can go on. Especially since coco bongo might not be for everyone!

if it's a party after your reception, guests should have no problem shelling out for that part since you paid for the whole reception

    • 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?
