      Was this at the Capri? Because we are arriving on the Wednesday and then I was thinking of doing the welcome dinner on the Thursday as we expect one more couple that day. And if it would have the show, it would be great.

          Missy your pics are gorgous!! You looked stunning!! Your set up was beautiful and i loved your cake. Is the sand ceremony standard with each ceremony or did you request?

            Thanks ladies! The starfish the hotel provided as a loaner.. The Sand Ceremony is not included in any of the packages - we wrote our own, decided where we wanted it during the ceremony, and brought all the containers/sand etc. from home.

                No, Capri is the Italian restaurant and is not very big. I bet it'd be hard to have space there reserved during a prime dinner time. The show takes place in a different area of the resort in its own room. They serve a buffet dinner with some of the shows. It is separate from where the regular buffet is.

                  Hey Girls,

                  I was wondering how long before/after the ceremony you had the photographer taking photos/videos? I have 5 hours and I wasn't sure when they should start/finish. The ceremony is at 3:30 and the reception starts at 5:00. I was thinking they should start at 2:00 and go till 7:00.

                  BUT...Are you usually in your dress an hour and a half before the ceremony? Do you usually have the first dance, speeches, cake cutting within the first 2 hours of the reception? I haven't really paid too much attention to the time lines of other weddings...any advise is much appreciated!

                  Thanks!

                  Meredith

                    Meredith - My ceremony was at 3:30 as well and I wasn't in my dress until about 2:30 - we didn't do any pics together before the ceremony but did do some individual ones! from about 4:30 - 6:30 we did pics - and then dinner started at 7:00 - I would say that our first dance was at about 8:30 - 9:00 -

                    Thinking if you were in your dress at 2:00 five hours would be plenty~
