Our wedding will be in NYC and we are thinking of hosting a fun event other than our rehearsal dinner… brainstorming at this point. Was wondering if any other destination bees are hosting any additional events for their guests?

hmm for NYC I might book one of those tour buses for whoever is interested or some kind of event like that (depending on interests and how many out of towners will be there). Maybe a happy hour or a brunch the morning after the wedding?????

@imnotorange: ours was a semi-destination – probably 2/3 of the guests came in from out of state. Instead of a rehearsal dinner, we had a BBQ for the entire guest list on Friday night, and we also had a bagel brunch Sunday morning. A bunch of us (probably 25) also went hiking, swimming, and then out to dinner on Thursday (by the time dinner came, we had more like 40-45 people). Our attitude was basically the more events and fun, the merrier!

The only hosted events we will be doing is a welcome dinner for everyone the night before the wedding and then the wedding. However we will be doing a brewery tour the day before the welcome dinner and brunch the day after the wedding, these will not be hosted but we are letting people know we will be there and they are more then welcome to attend.

@imnotorange: I am hosting a “farewell” brunch the day after the wedding at this organic farm not far from my wedding site in San Jose del Cabo.

Ours is like a destination wedding in that most people are coming from out of town (to the city we live in, where the wedding will be). Since my fiance is having his closest friends come in early for a bachelor “retreat” (camping trip), I am having a casual dinner at our house (I’ll cook, it’ll be a buffet) 2 days before the wedding since they’ll be getting back that night. I’ll have my family, his, and anyone else who is already around and would like to attend. The next day we’ll have a cocktail party at a restaurant for out of towners, followed by the official “rehearsal dinner” for the families. The next day will be the wedding.
