    @zoecn:  I would enjoy the boat idea the best however I’m not too keen on guests paying for their own lunch afterwards- especially after having spent so much $$ to get to the destination wedding (flights, hotels, food). If you can’t afford to pay for everyones food then I’d go with option 2.

    I would love the cruise to see the islands, however, i agree i think it would be lovely if you could fund this seeing as they have spent so much money to get there. In saying that i don’t think would be expected you pay for pre-wedding activities. i went to a wedding in Thailand last November and they had a pre-wedding cruise and we had to pay (which to be honest i never thought it was rude). They sent out details to all guests saying we will be on a cruise and if you have no plans we would love for you to join us, the cost is $$$$. I never crossed my mind that we had to pay.

    Unfortunately we didn’t make it to red beach but Perissa and Kamari both had lots and lots of restaurants on the foreshore that would def be big enough for 30. another option could be to pack a picnic if u decide to still do the cruise. Your hotel could help you with this, everyone I met on the island was very helpful like that. There is a supermarket right in the middle of Fira if you wanted to DIY. The boat is a FANTASTIC idea & a really nice gesture for your guests as they’d be spending SO much $ getting there if you can afford to pay for everyone, it would be nice to keep the group together & not split them up beforehand. I think definitely pay for your reception dinner & have everyone together, I would imagine guests will expect this. I have not been to a reception where I’ve had to pay before & I’ve not been to a wedding that was ceremony only and no reception dinner.
