    Welcome dinners are wonderful and always such a good time for the couple and their guests -- without the stress or any timelines of the wedding day :)


    If you're on an AI resort, plan to have a gathering at one of the restaurants or even a bar to keep is casual. If you're on a private property (condo/villa), plan something super casual but festive -- a taco bar is always easy! Or even propose it as a meet and greet for all your guests with just drinks and appetizers. We actually shot a wedding where all the guests were invited to a local restaurant that sectioned off an area for the party and the couple provided non-alcoholic drinks and appetizers, for those who wanted to eat, they had to order. It was fabulous and festive!


    Everyone is going to have a great time regardless of how formal or casual it is, they'll all be pumped in anticipation of the big day!!!  :)  Oh and all-white party is an awesome idea, since it will just be you and your hubby-to-be in all white come the Wedding Day!!!

    We did 2 welcome parties of sort - a welcome party the night of arrival where we had dinner, passed out OOT bags and played some drinking games.  We also had a white party the day before our wedding (we had a lot more guests arrive then).  It overlooked the beach and we hired a cigar roller -  it was a blast :)


    You can see pics of both on my review under Part 1

    We are doing a semi-private dinner (but there will be 80 of us so I'm sure we'll take over where ever we are) followed by a bonfire on the beach with a steel drum band. We have to pay extra for a bar on the beach (and the band, of course) but our wedding reception will be indoor (because I sweat way too much) so it'll be worth it to do this event outside.
