Hello everyone!


I am desperately trying to find a venue to host my 100 guests for a casual welcome dinner/reception. We are looking to stay under 5k. We would like something different than beachfront because our wedding reception will be beach front. We are thinking a casual taco place, a place we can rent and get catered tacos/buffet, or some passed hors d'doeuvres on a rooftop or somewhere unique. Please let me know if you have any suggestions, thank you!!!

Welcome to our forum community hopechest and Congrats on your upcoming PdC wedding!!!


You've chosen an amazing location in PdC, and one that's super popular with Lots of wedding couples coming to our magnificent Mayan Riviera - great choice!

Which resort have you selected for your wedding? There's a wonderful rooftop area at Azul Fives, as you can see in the wedding reception we captured there....possibly they'd be open to a welcome reception as well. Here are some images of what we're talking about to show you ......from our Azul Fives Wedding Story Album:





Hope you find the perfect place you're looking for. Wishing you happy research, and all the best with your plans - cheers!

@@hopechest we do agree with @@DreamArtPhotography those are some great restuarant to look into,


In addition check this rooftop http://www.thepalmatplaya.com/weddings-events/default-en.html 

its right in the center of playa del carmen. they do quite a lot of rehearsal dinners or cocktails.


Happy Planning!

I haven't been there but I was actually thinking about Alux Restaurant for my bachelorette dinner/party.  The other restaurant that @@DreamArtPhotography looks nice as well.  I'd like to know what you end up doing. :D

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
