    I just found out that the only time available for us to get married is 11:00AM. So after the ceremony, toasts and pictures our guests are going to have about 4 to 5 hours before dinner. We are on a budget so don't know if an excursion is feasible. We were planning on getting married then do the toasts and pictures, followed by the dinner and a party on the beach.

    We are going to EdenH Real Arena in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Anyone have any suggestions? A cheap excursion, a different schedule... anything?

      I have been to the resort. Not sure if you want to do things in reverse order. They have a nice area where they do the night activity maybe you can take a hr break after the picts then do your dancing outside then have your dinner. It may be a bit too hot though. I know when I was there nothing went on during the day in the "village" area.

        I have been to a wedding down south that was at 11 as well and we just got changed back into our bathing suites and went swimming until the dinner...it was actually really nice to be able to go back into the pool...the bride and groom as well eventually came to the pool for a quick swim without gettin gher hair done after their pics and stuff were done and then before dinner they just changed back into their attire and went for dinner...well we all did...and it was really nice to have it that way actually....

          Could you have a beautiful lunch and cut the cake and dance after lunch? And then change and have a fun night out afterward? Or is that too weird?

            The lunch thing sounds nice. I think a few ladies on the forum have actually done that.

            As far as inexpensive excursion, I think there is a nice glass bottom boat you guys can enjoy. Or a mini cruise. Let me see if I can find the name of the company

            Are you having a symbolic or legal ceremony? If you are having a symbolic ceremony, then it should be very easy to move your time around. And I think even with the legal ceremony, someone told me that you can sign the papers with the judge later

              Hi there.
              Have you checked if they have another date available to get married on, at a later time (like the next day or a day before)?

                We are doing a legal ceremony and unfortunately this is the only date and time available the entire week.

                I like the light lunch followed by hanging out by the pool, I'm just worried about what our guests will think. But I guess the only people that matter on our wedding day is my FH and myself.

                I still like the idea of doing a group excursion and would appreciate the name of the company, thanks Twinkletoes.
