We are getting married at an AI and I think we are just doing the semi private reception dinner w/ cake and toasts that is included in the wedding package. I really can't bring myself to pay what they want for an extra reception or food/activities at an AI. Plus we will be having an AHR wen we get back and are putting money into that. Our group is pretty laid back so I think we will have our own party on the beach in between ceremony and dinner (our ceremony is at noon and dinner not until 6). Then see what the resort entertainment is for the evening, or visit the nightclub on premises and keep it simple. We will be going on an excursion either rthe day before or after the wedding so that's something else we will all do together.
Is Anyone Just Having The Simple Cocktail Reception?

@fmyers562015.. Well we want to do a couple things but I also want to make them optional as I dont' want to take up our guests whole vacation with wedding stuff. One thing we really want to do though is take our wedding party on a catamaran cruise. I wanted to do it the day before but now I'm thinking maybe the day after the wedding as I don't want anyone having "too" much fun the day before haha! Like I said, we are pretty laid back so I think this will work for us. We will pay for them and then just make it optional for the other guests.

I have been to Jamaica twice before, so I am just thinking of what I thought was fun. I definitely loved the catamaran but it was pretty much a party "booze" cruise so you need to have the right group! They provide drinks and snacks, stop and let people off to snorkel for a bit, and from our area in Negril cruise up to the cliffs to Ricks Café and watch the cliff divers before heading back. Its a blast! I am sure you can get more laid back ones if you wanted. Also the last time I went we did do a smaller glass bottom boat ride.they did not have food or drinks but it was pretty cool to see everything!
I am going to ask my wedding coordinator for a list of current offerings though as it has been a few years since I have been there. My FI has never been and neither have most of our guests so I'm really excited about it!
