SMALL wedding...

Recommended Posts

Hey there!

I'm having a small group too - 10 guests, and I'm pretty excited about our day. What we're having is our ceremony on the beach, and then dinner, toasting, and cake on the beach with our guests. It's going to be small, intimate, and awesome!! For such a small group, I saw no reason to hire a band, dj, or have any sort of dance, but the resort is providing a cd player and we're bringing a bunch of music from home. After the ceremony we have 4 hours of bar service on the beach, and once we're done eating and drinking there, we're going to stroll the malecon (Puerto Vallarta) and see what kind of fun we can find!!

I do actually have a big fancy gown, but I don't care - I'm not changing!! It's going to be a great time!

Good luck!

This might be crazy but if there is another bride on here with the same date maybe they are in the same boat. If it is just hanging out and dancing why not rent out the disco together?

Thats actually what I wanted to do. But my resort doesnt allow me to do it. I say go for it, your guests will have fun either way!

We are also having a small wedding @ the ROR. We have 23 guests total so I really didn't think that it was worth having a reception aside from a dinner that evening. We have a rather large reception planned at home a few weeks after we return, so our guests can just enjoy their time while it lasts in jamaica.

We are having 40 people but we are doing an AHR. After dinner and

cake cutting we are just having our ipod and keeping the bar open. My friends and family will be perfectly happy with this. You don't have to have a traditional reception.

We are having a small wedding with only 7 people. 3 are kids. I am so glad to hear that Im not in the small wedding boat alone. I hear you on getting every chance to wear your dress. Our wedding is at 11 March 13 08 at ROR. I think I may wear my dress all day!!! I think it will be a nice relaxing day becuase I won't feel like I have to entertain 30 or more people. Although I would LOVE all my family and freinds to be there.

Hello Beachbride82,...the sunset cruise sounds like a great idea for the reception. I have been looking into that but have not really found anything...the margaritaville cruis which make a stop to go shopping, etc...any cruises that you know of that will jusy sail into the sunset and then we can all party on the boat. It would be even better if it was a smaller boat that can accomadate just my wedding party....any ideas,... Who did you book with for your reception cruise??

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
