Private Reception vs. Dinner Reservations

Recommended Posts

Hi! I am a Moon Palace Bride and I'm torn between PAYING extra for a private reception or just doing the dinner that they provide. Has anyone actually done the dinner?? I mean I want it to be exclusive to our wedding party - There are about 30 people coming - Just wondered what everyone was doing!

Hi,

I'm also getting married at MP, actually the week after you!

We are doing the private reception. We were happy to do the dinner thing, but my dad REALLY wants dancing and such so we figured we'd just suck it up and pay the additional cost. I've heard great reviews either way, I guess it just depends what you're looking for!

Best of luck!

if you can guarantee like 20 rooms and do it through a group blocking you can get free events.

a group block is when you block a bunch of rooms at a set rate for your group.

Oh thanks. This is the main problem I'm finding. We are going to have at least 50 people come. Do you know of any resorts off hand that cater to large group weddings.

I'm trying to do this really inexpensively, so we don't have to have our parents help and we don't have to go into debt.

Dreams, el dorado, palace resorts...most of the larger resorts.

Moon Palace would be really affordable because they do not charge an extra fee for the private event and it is all-inclusive.

Dreams cancun does a nice reception at a great price. el dorado is a little more expensive but they also have beautiful events.

I know MP does offer free packages for a cocktail hour or private reception if you book over 15 rooms or something - and we aren't having that many people come - I just wondered if anyone used the dinner that MP throws in and how it was......

Please let me know what you go with and how it goes. My FI is really against paying $40-$60 per head for a dinner at an all-inclusive and thinks its ridiculous. But I don't want to have a crappy reception either! We are going with Dreams Cancun and I'm hoping I can come up with some kind of comprimise....

can anyone confirm that El Dorado Royal and the Karisma resorts are adult only? these would have been my top picks but my TA mentioned that they don't allow children and we'll have our 9 nieces and nephews with us...
