What time is your ceremony?

Recommended Posts

We are getting married at 11:00 in the morning! We decided on this, pretty much because of price. Our WC in San Diego told me that there is about a $10k difference in a luncheon reception and a dinner reception. So our reception will go until 3:30...then people will take a break, go back to the hotel, take a nap, whatever...then we will all meet back up around 7 for dinner/apps and drinks! Can't wait!

3 pm is perfect! I went as far as to even change my date, just to get that 3pm slot. my ceremony is at 3pm, cocktail hour at 4pm and recep at 5pm (just in time for sunset) It's important to have a daytime ceremony for your pictures. My friend had a 5pm ceremony last year in punta cana and to her disapointment her pictures came out dark! so the earlier the better!!! :)

We are supposed to be getting married at 1! seemed like a good idea at the time lol. Reception after then people can do what they want for the rest of the day. I didn't want to take over someone's holiday so thought short and sweet. They've spent a lot of cash to come and the least I can do is keep it to a couple of hours lol i may change it when i get there. I'm getting married in black, Im blonde and burn lmao smile159.gif

We've got a 2PM ceremony...our logic is (this is assuming we do our reception at the resort and not on a dinner boat we are considering)....2-3 or 4 ceremony/pics hang out at the bar...4-5 cocktail reception...5-9 or 10 reception & dancing and then we can head to the disco at the resort to dance.

 

If we do the reception on the dinner boat it would be 2PM ceremony...then pics/drinks till 4...cocktail reception at the resort till around 5 and then head to dinner for 6...dinner/drinking/dancing till 10 and back to the resort where we can continue at the disco :)

 

We're getting married in January

I think sunset is more around 6:15, righthuh.gif

I am now a little paranoid that my pictures will not come out. Does Cancun follow daylight savings time?? because I am on the same time zone and the sun does not set till closer to 7:30 during summer..completely dark at 8.

Also, I noticed you said you had to change your date to get the 3pm slot. I was under the impression that dreams cancun only does 1 wedding per dayhuh.gif I liked this idea and am real dissapointed if this is the case.

Dreams all do multiple weddings per day if booked. Some days only one person books some days they do two or three weddings.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
