        Hey,

         

        Has anyone done speeches while at dinner in the restaurant?  I'm hoping to do this so that I can save time at the poolside party.  Just wondering if it would work or not.

        Thanks.

          That worked Crystal!  You looked so beautiful!!

           

          sjust, I actually think doing speeches at the restaurant instead of the poolside is a great idea.  My only suggestion is to do them before 6:30.  I found that while we were there, 6:30 was when they let normal guests into the restaurants (wedding dinners were 5:30-7:30), so I would recommend maybe doing the speeches after the appetizer but before the main course?

                We did our speeches at the reception, but now that it's all over, I can definitely say that you should do them at dinner!  They ended up taking quite some time and the rest of our 2 hour reception felt rushed.  If you are having your dinner at 5:30, you will have at least 30 min. without any other people in the restaurant.  During our honeymoon week, we went back to the same restaurant (Portofino) for an a la carte dinner and saw a wedding dinner happening that night.  They did speeches throughout their dinner and it didn't seem to bother any of the other guests in the restaurant.

                We also finally have a restaurant, Gran Tortuga on the Tulum side. Does anyone have any pictures of this one? Also, has anyone had a head table at this one? Jazmin sent me an email and it seemed that the head table only seats 4 people? Where did the rest of the wedding party sit then?

                Thanks so much, you ladies are so amazing! I have no idea what I'd do without this thread!


                Do i have pictures!  ha!  Silly question... although i don't have pictures of a head table.  Boo.  Next person getting married in Tulum, hire me so I can take a picture of a head table!  LOL :)

                 

                Okay, so here are the pictures

                The outside of the building as you walk to it.  To the left is the beach.  Behind the building are the dolphins.  Behind me are villas and eventually the lobby.

                Here is a closeup of the table setting.  At night it includes a lantern.

                Here you can see the buffet beyond the tables:

                  We had our dinner at Portofino, but we had 6 people at our head table.  They should be able to seat as many at your table as you want because all they need to do is push more tables together...here is a picture of our head table...
