On my invitation do I put the time people should arrive at the hotel or the time the ceremony will actually start?

 

We are planning for a 6pm ceremony - do I write "6 o'clock in the evening" or "half past five o'clock"

 

What did you guys do? Unlike an AI wedding, I doubt many of our guests will be staying in our hotel so i don't want everyone to be late but I also want to do it in the traditional manner... thoughts?

In mexico we're known for unpunctuality so I'd put 5 o' clock hahahahaha

Though, if you're going to provide transportation you should put the exact timing.. (15-20 mins before for mexicans)

rofl Anny. I wanted to say the same thing, but I thought- Anny's on here, I better not make any comments about late Mexicans- but you did it for me! lol

I would tend to put the actual ceremony time in the traditional manner on the invitation, but I might put something on the welcome letter (or whatever else you're sending out ahead of time) about coming early...

I put the start time of the wedding on mine...but we later changed it...on my newsletter i put the start time and the time the limo van will be picking people up...now the limo van time is 30 min earlier than what the actual pickup time is...just like you Kash my guest will not all be in the same hotel...

On my invitations I put the actual time, but in the email newsletter I sent out I reminded people that we would be starting ON TIME so we wouldn't lose the sunset. Amazingly, we did actually start right on time and everyone was there.

On our invitation I put the actual ceremony start time. I plan to give everybody a welcome letter that will ask them to arrive at the hotel 30 minutes early to enjoy a welcome cocktail...I figure that will be a nice bribe :)

    • 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.
