    So you have ceremony at 3 and dinner at 5:30 now? Jazmin wants me to do ceremony at 3, and dinner at 6! Since they said I can't do diner at 5:30, I'm going to try to see if 5 is available. I would rather eat at 5 than have my guests sit and wait around until 6.

      I was informed that the Portofino now opens at 5:30. I'm not sure where you're having your dinner but It might not be open at 5.

        What type of dress is everyone wearing fabric wise? I don't want chiffon, and prefer something more like a plain satin dress, but I heard satin is thick and heavy - and will most likely be too hot for my August Mexico wedding... What about silk? Or a silk-satin blend?

          Thanks for the reply... I am going to either try to push for a 3:30 ceremony with a 6pm dinner ... Or a 3pm ceremony with a 5:30 pm dinner. Any advice on what I should say that could help me to get a decent time change? :( Currently I have 3pm ceremony and 6pm dinner :( :( :(

            Hi there I just wondered if you can clarify Jazmin sent me an email asking for our 4 witnesses passports. Can the witnesses be my parents and my sister and brother in law all on my side or does the groom have to have 2 separate witnesses?

            Also do they just scan and sent the copies in an email to her????

            Thank you

             

            I am looking to get some maracas whilst in mexico but I wanted some fans for the ladies at the ceremony has anybody found any cheap ones online

              The witnesses can be anyone. On the form the WC sends it makes you list 2 has yours and 2 as his but it can all be from your family if you want. However, they have to stand up with you in front of everyone and witness the signing of the documents. It could make his family feel rejected if you use only your family members. I just used whoever from my family at first, but then I realized what the witness thing really means and changed it to both his parents and my own for equal representation. It would have bothered my mother in law otherwise. Just scan and send the copies to her.

                      Ok so my ceremony is at 3pm, dinner at 6pm...

                       

                      I am bummed about this, because I dont want guests waiting around for a long time before dinner and poolside reception...

                       

                      SO I was thinking...

                       

                      Is it possible to do a cocktail hour to do speeches with some sort of little appetizers? 

                       

                      3:00-3:30pm ceremony

                       

                      3:30-5:00pm pictures

                       

                      5:00-6:00pm cocktails, appetizers, speeches?

                       

                      6:00-8:00pm dinner

                       

                      8pm-11pm poolside reception

                       

                      *** I really wish I could move my ceremony up to 3:30 or dinner down to 5:30 :(

                       

                      Any other suggestions?
