    I had originally has a 5pm time. My photographer (Citlalli from Claudia Rodriguez's group) highly suggested we move it up so now we are at 4pm.

      Holy crap, 18 weddings in two years. I would be sick of weddings. At least your having a DW, so it's not only a wedding but it's a fun vacation too!

        Geez....I don't even have a photographer yet! Have you been happy with Claudia so far?

        We originally had a 4pm, and I'm even thinking about pushing it up to 3:30. I want to write our ceremony and see how long it's going to be first. But we're having a cocktail hour after the ceremony and I'd like the sun to be setting during that time.

        Are you planning on seeing the groom and taking pics prior to the ceremony? Or did Claudia think that with a 4pm start time she still have enough sunlight after the ceremony to snap some pics of the happy couple?

        This is EXACTLY why we are having a destination wedding. Between the two of us, we've been in 16 weddings (over the course of our lives, not just the last year) and we are "weddinged out". I would LOVE to go to a wedding just as a guest!! (We do love all of our friends dearly and are very honored to be a part of their special days.)

          Yes I have been very happy with Claudia, she was not available but my next choice from her group, Citlalli was so I was ecstatic. That sounds nice to have the sun setting during the cocktail hour, thinking about it now it will work out that way for us too. 4pm ceremony and 5pm cocktail hour. No I am not going to see my FI before the ceremony. Thats why we had to push it up because with a 5pm ceremony time we would not at all get the pics in before the sun would set.

            Okay, thanks. That helps.

            I've just started freaking out about a rehearsal dinner dress and new bathing suit. Come October/November, tropical attire will not be in the stores! Have you guys thought about purchasing that stuff ahead of time? I'm planning on losing some more weight by then, so this is hard!!

              Yeah I figure we need to have this stuff purchased by July-ish because at least up here they start throwing all the ugly winter coats and all that out on the racks so soon I hate it.

                I booked Citlalli as well. Our ceremony time is at 4:00, but I have heard that the sun sets around 5-5:30 and sets quick. I finally convinced my FI to take pics before the ceremony. I want to take a lot of pictures of us and the bridal party and was afraid we wouldn't have enough time afterwards since we want to do a lot of family shots. We are having a cocktail hour starting at either 5 or 5:30.

                    We are having our ceremony at 3:30 as our photog suggested that so we could do pics after and get the sun set.

                    I am stocking up on summer clothes, bathing suits and stuff for our kids OOT pails now as I know the fall and winter stuff will be out by mid-july!

                      i've been buying some summer dresses now and plan to go out in July to get a bunch more. i'm dreading the bathing suits. I'm trying to lose a bunch of weight too, so i've been guessing what size i'll be. so far everything i bought was sized as S,M or L and not # sizes. I better be able to fit into the sizes i've got or i'll be screwed come Nov.

                      I remember trying to find stuff for Jamaica in Sept and it was nearly impossible. I ended up getting sundresses from a store like burlington coat factory that gets things a season later.
