Reception After Wedding

Recommended Posts

Wondering what other couples did for a reception the night of your wedding. I'm uncertain if I wanna do sit down dinner reception or just a poolside, or beach party. We are staying at n all inclusive so I feel its silly to pay extra for a sit down dinner. Any suggestions. We are getting married at RIU Tropical Bay Negril

Are you having guests?  A reception after the ceremony was included in our wedding package, so we're going that route.  I'll have about 30 guests, so I am pretty sure that I am going to spring for the private reception.

We are at an all inclusive also. However, we are paying for a reception afterwards. We want time to be with our guests and do the dinner, toasts, first dance, etc. We have 50 people so we have to do something.

Yes we have reserved the bar for 4 hours after it closes. It does feel silly to be paying for this since it is an all inclusive but it will be nice to have it for just our wedding guests and then we can move the party to the disco once it opens at 11!!

Same! It's all inclusive but you have to pay for the privacy. We are having a semiprivate reception in one of the restaurants there. After that, we will do a private beach bash (which we have to pay for). Our own open bar, party food, misic, set up on beach. After that, we'll head  to the club to party with other people staying at resort.

My wedding package includes a 3-hours sit down dinner on a private outdoor terrace.  The 3 hours includes the dinner AND dancing, so I'm having a pretty short reception (7-10pm).  The resort charges an extra $500 PER HOUR if I want more time... umm no thank you!

 

My resort will decorate our room with rose petals, chocolate-covered strawberries, and champagne so I think once my recpetion is over we will just head back to our room to enjoy all that ;) But for my guests who want to continue to party, they can just go to a bar at the resort.  I have mostly older relatives, so I don't see too many people wanting to party past 10pm.

About 80 @ the RIU Tropical Palace in Negril. Does anyone have any info on what my options are. Do you pay extra just for solely dinner, no extras, we do not want table décor.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
