Or should we look for another resort. Don't know what to do. Please help!
Also a question on the beach party - with other weddings taking place on the same day, can there be several beach parties? Are they in different locations?
we are having our ceremony at 2 as well. It has nothing to do with the resort, times are set according to the judges schedule. So if you switch resorts you might run into the same problem. This was a major concern for me too. Not sure where you plan on having your ceremony, but the gazebo does provide some shade. But I figured the ceremony is 15 mins and I'm doing a sand ceremony so that would add on another 10, then they do the champagne toast and then pictures. I have my photographer until 4pm, dinner usually starts around 6 so it's only two hours, you could do a cocktail hour if you want. We decided to give everyone an hour to freshen up and then meet at a bar for cocktails. As far as the beach party, I was told they allow two at a time but they are on opposite sides of the beach. I was so stressed about the ceremony time for a long time and then just sucked it up eventually. Good luck
