Resort Wedding Receptions

Recommended Posts

My fiance and i are looking to get married at a resort in mexico. We were really interested in having our wedding at the now jade resort in cancun, but we noticed the the reception dinner will only for up to 25 guests. Then they charge per person for additional guests over 25. Does anyone know of resorts in mexico that will allow up to 80 guests attend our reception without charging an arm and a leg?

Hello Icwitek,

 

Have a look at Hacienda Tres Rios and Playacar Palace.

This has been my issue with resorts.   They charge for extra guests but the guests are already staying there.  I have seen additonal person fees up to $80 per person.  It can get really expensive.  I am currently looking in Jamaica but I can't find any resorts that include packages for more than 20 persons.

Dreamweddings: thank you for your suggestions.

 

Futuremrsglover: I've looked into a bunch of other resorts and just like you it seems like I can only find resorts with 20 to 25 max. It's frustrating. Now we have to think about if we cut our guests list, continue to look for other resorts

Or pay extra :/

Crazy isn't it? You'd think these resorts would make it EASIER not harder on us brides when we are bringing them more guests (this more $$)! It's the extra costs everywhere that are stressful for sure!

Yes everyone seems to be a bit flabbergasted when I tell them our projected costs. I think there's this assumption that destination wedding means free. Resorts should definitely offer larger packages, and esp. since we're all staying at the resort and paying a ton of money for AI already. The biggest package I've seen is at the Paradisus. Their tailor made is actually for 42 people... but the package costs 12K (along w/ a lot of other stuff admittedly)

 

Are there any off resort places in the Cancun/Riviera area that are like the Jellyfish in Punta Cana?

I ran into the same problem. Unfortunately, we are going to have to suck it up and pay extra.. I have found that many resorts give you a monetary credit for x-amt of guests booked after 30 or so, if that makes sense

We went to Now Jade for a resort review and had such a bad experience (food issues, bugs in the rooms, rusted shower)... We also felt that the wedding packages were cookie cutter, not including enough and you paid an arm and a leg for guests over 25. We are now going with a Karisma Property... Take a look at Azul Sensatori or Azul Fives

@@lcwitek - I had the same issue, I think we are just going to "bite the bullet".... (sigh)..


PS I feel like "small" destination weddings are a thing of the past... since I have been on this site, I hardly see anyone mention a guest list less than 50... Sooooo, just thinking out loud...resorts increase their "up to 25 guests" packages

    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
