    Where and What is the order of events:

    This is what i'm thinking but i'm not sure:

    ceremony - Beach Gazebo
    pictures - Beach Gazebo
    dinner reception - Plantation
    Formal Announcement - Disco
    First Dance w/ new hubby- Disco
    Dance w/ dad - Disco
    Garter / Bouquet Toss - Disco
    Cake Cutting - Where does this go
    What else am i forgetting?

    Also, for those that used a cd or pre-recorded music for their walk down the aisle, how was the sound system? Did it sound loud and clear with alot of bass or was it muffled and hard to hear? Thanks!!!

      I would think the cake cutting would go along with the dinner reception. (Plantation)

          It does, but there is a $75 charge according to Chandlyn.

            I had my reception in the plantation. I didn't get charged for a mic but I paid for a DJ. It is a cordless mic so we did all our speeches at the head table. We did the cake cutting right after dinner and speeches then we did our first dance and mother/father dance. I think you would dance for a bit then pick a fun song about an hour after dinner to do the garder & bouquet toss to.

              I think when Chandlyn told me about the $75 fee was before I told her that I wanted a DJ, so that makes sense now...if you are using the DJ you won't have to pay the fee for the microphone.

                i would do everything at the plantation
                and just use the disco if people want to go there afterward
                dont bother renting it
                it is like a bad bar from the 80's , lots of mirrors, small, etc
                i think you would like the first dances at the reception area better.

                otherwise sounds good
                basically what we did adn it worked great

                  Sounds great...the cd down the aisle. It played during pictures and signing papers. It was perfect.

                    so how would you be introduced at the reception area if you are already eating and there? Would they just set it up, introduce you, then you do the first dance, and then everyone eats??

                    As of now, i have the disco booked, but i'm just so confused on the order of all of these events. also, i'm bringing another dress to change into so i can dance, but i'm wondering when i should change?

                      Ummm... I enjoyed the disco!! If you like to dance I would stick with it!
                      Cake cutting would be done after your dinner.
                      You can change into your dress after dinner before you go to the disco.
