Yeah, 80 is alot but that is guessing on the high side - I think it will be more like 50ish in reality (including many kids).


Theme - I am getting married in Jamaica so I guess I would like to incorporate some of their foods, and also a beach theme - shells, sand, etc.

This is one of my favorites, and very easy to do for a large group. It reminds me of summer, good for your Jamaican theme. In Italy, they use honeydew melon, in Spain they use cantelope. Either way it tastes great!


-Take a Honeydew melon and cut into cubes

-Wrap thin strips of prosciutto around the cubes of melon

-Secure with a toothpick

-Set out on a tray

-Keep refrigerated until serving

Sam's club has some great apps in large quantities. You can get cheese/sausage platters, veggie trays, ham/turkey rollups, mini quiches, potstickers, mini eggrolls, meatballs, and the list goes on and on....


I have a ton of recipes too if you need some down the road...spin dip, stuffed cherry tomatoes, bbq chicken pinwheels, buffalo chicken dip, firecrackers, etc....

Jerk chicken is fairly easy to do. There are some fantastic bottled brands of seasoning, so you could marinate and then either bake or grill the chicken, cut into bite sized pieces. Serve with a mango chutney or fresh mango salsa and they're delicious!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
