Oh that's a great question! I'm wondering about the same thing! I know we'll be taking pictures after the ceremony so I was thinking of having the cocktail hour..but anything to save money would be great! Couldn't they all just hang out at the bar for an hour or so? :)

We wanted to save money where we could as well and our group had no issue with just hanging out together at a bar having drinks. We told them where to meet us in the end for the reception and they ended up hanging out as a group at the pool bar nearby. Everyone had eaten breakfast and lunch so no one complained about us not having cocktails, plus dinner was so large everyone was full soon enough.

who did you go with for hair and make up and how much?  also, did you bring your own decor?  any tips?

 

thanks,

 

Sorry, I haven't been on her lately. I went with Adrian from the Styling Trio ... 100000% worth it. My make up lasted as its airbrushed plus he was so much fun to hang out with ! I did bring a lot of my own stuff but that that much. We had our reception on the beach so we bought closed in lanterns with candles and brought those down as well as a few other items like favors and place cards. Nothing crazy. I would suggest bring as much as you can and looking around online for the best prices.

Also wondering if anyone knows how much an extra reception hour costs?

 

Thanks!

 

No, I had the strawberry package and served Surf and Turf. It costs nothing different. As for the extra hours its $15 per person and hour. We were able to negotiate an extra hour as we had 80 guests....however when the party was suppose to end we extended it another hour and I think we paid only $850

We got married at Playa Azul and had our cocktail hour there on the beach at the cabana thing.  It was really nice and a great place for everyone to hang out while we were taking pictures with the wedding party.  700

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
