So just reserve a big table for 20 at a nice restaurant and have a late lunch.  It doesn’t have to be private at long as it’s festive.

A post wedding lunch with a station is always a great idea. Where is your wedding?

I am in the same situation as you…. Small dw wedding 12-16 people. It’s at an all inclusive resort. We are going to have a cocktail hour while we do pics after the wedding. Our resort told us they only seat parties of 8 max to a table in the dining areas….. Boooooo

 

Then they told us that we could only have a private party if we have 20. So we are really torn on what to do???? There is a possibility we might have 16 at the most. I am stressing over this as well bc I feel my guests after spending so much to come are going to expect a nice dinner all together and not split up!

Im glad you posted this…. Keep us posted on what you decide!

I am having only 20 guests and we are doing a cocktail hour and a private reception w/ a seated dinner, small cake, and a DJ with dancing and all of that. I think it depends on who your guests are but I don’t really see why you couldn’t do a reception even though you will have only 20 guests.

We are kinda in a similar situation – we are having a DW in Montego Bay as well.  Had been back and forth over a three hour cocktail hour and then reserving a table for dinner later on in the evening or having a traditional cocktail hour and then dinner and reception.  (short version our wedding is taking place at 2pm and then following the ceremony is cocktail hour and then dinner and reception.  Our wedding and reception will technically be over by 6:30).  There are only going to be 8 of us altogether – so in the end we are sticking with the traditional cocktail hour and then dinner/reception (I think, I still have two weeks to change my mind).  We are also going to have a steel drummer play at the reception.  I, too, am a little worried that we might get bored, but it is what it is for now – we are in Jamaica and we will have a great time no matter what!

How about just catering a cocktail on the beach from the hotel. You can definitely do this through the concierge. I can help you out (no charges) just send me a message. I love helping out brides.

I too am having a destination wedding with a guest list under 50. We are doing a nice dinner at a restauraunt right after. I thought about having my ceremony late morning, if I did that, I was going to have a late lunch.
