Will they let us not eat dinner until 7 in order to give us time to take photos while the guest are at the reception? Thoughts please!!!!!!! My reception is 6-9 as well but my ceremony is at 4pm and cocktail hour is from 5-6. I would consider adding a cocktail hour, I think there is a fee to break up your ceremony/reception and the cost of cocktail hour would be less.

Have a great time! 3 people can have their hair done at a time, per my WC and the schedule she gave me for hair and makeup

Also, I am having a private reception which is $15 per person. She sent me a menu, however, it is 15 pages long. Does anyone know what I am even aloud to chose from? If the bouquet is included in your package you don't have to pay for it, that's the a la carte price, if you want to upgrade to a luxury bouquet and only the standard is included in your package you will need to pay full price. I upgraded my cake and had to pay full price, so I assume all services are the same. I received a 30 page document when choosing my menu but everything was labeled (Wedding menu, Mexican Wedding, Indian Wedding, Breakfast, etc) so I went to the applicable section and chose from there. For example, my package includes soup, salad, entree and dessert which I chose from the wedding menu based on my package

I would assume the $15 includes setup, plates, white table cloths etc. I bought a package and I know that the fee includes everything for the reception (4 course meal, white linens, plates, service, etc) and if I go above the 40 included in the package I pay by the person but it covers everything.

Thanks for you help! =) Nevermind based on MOrdonez response I went and double checked, it's a Mexican Trio. I honestly didn't know the difference though until I just googled it. We did the luxury wedding package and it comes with it.

I have one included in my package, I didn't pick them out though its whoever the resort uses and I probably won't hear them very much because they're playing during cocktail hour. I guess that's not very helpful, sorry

I'm interested how you're going to do without flowers Are you replacing them with something else? There was a delay between getting my emails responded to I remember that but assumed it was because it was during peak wedding season. I would definitely have done flowers if it wasn’t a DW because I LOVE them but I knew I’d be spending well over a 1,000 to just throw it all away 5 hours later, it’s not like people are going to bring centerpieces and bouquets back from MX, so I decided I was going to think of something that didn’t require flowers. My bouquet and my FI's boutonniere are included in the package so we have those. The other boutonniere’s I ordered off of Etsy, they’re from KateSaidYes. The girls will have clutches and I’m having the GM escort them down the aisle, we have one extra GM (I had a BM drop out) so I can have the best man stand with my FI at the altar and everyone else will come in with a GM and a clutch. The clutches were designed to match their dresses and have little flowers on them. I found the idea on a wedding blog and it looked cute and reusable. For Centerpieces I’m doing flameless pillar candles on glass plates with a ribbon around them that matches the table runners I’m bringing. Everything is pretty much white, pastel pink and a few hints of silver thrown in here and there. Simple but hopefully pretty

I have most of the big stuff done, just waiting on all of the RSVP's to come back so I can finalize some of the details I've been waiting on. Are you using an outside vendor for flowers? I was going to use Maya before I pretty much nixed flowers entirely

  11. I'm wondering the same thing, right now I think we plan to add an hour but b/w the DJ and extra per person charge not sure if it's worth it...
