A WELCOME PARTY is a wonderfully fun pre-wedding event that most of our clients include in their destination weddings. For some, the casual, light-hearted, mix and mingle aspect can replace a traditional rehearsal dinner, or it can be an extension of one, allowing late arrivals to join in without stress. For other clients, like Nina and Douglas shown here, the welcome party is a totally separate and distinct event from the rehearsal dinner, taking place on a different day entirely. And, more than likely, at a completely different locale than the host venue or resort.
As you can see from these breathtaking photos from Ashley Bosnick, Nina and Douglas’ Welcome Party was a chic “White Party” gathering on the beach at The Resort at Pedregal, the location of their wedding. The bride and groom decided to make the introductory event easy for their guests, and what better venue to launch the love fest than the amazing Pedregal?! Working from the already warm elegance of the resort, Elena, our Creative Director, incorporated sexy custom-made lounge furniture with natural woods, rustic lanterns, weathered metallic candles, and organic floral pieces for a taste of modern Mexico. Claudia Morales, one of our savvy wedding planners, created a festive menu with the client, focusing on what the couple knew their guests would want the minute they arrived in paradise: delicious tropical cocktails and Mexican-inspired hors d’oeuvres!
Combined with the stunning setting, perfect weather and playful entertainment, this Welcome Party let guests ease into the long weekend and, without a doubt, it set the tone for an incredible wedding experience!
