Can anyone comment on a 3pm wedding on the beach? Will it be too hot? I liked the idea of a 6-16-16 wedding date but they only have 3pm available.

I would say too hot, especially in June! Andddd if your on the beach there will be A LOT of lookers. We wanted something more private so we had our ceremony and cocktail hour on the sky deck. If you decide on beach, try having it later. Also the seaweed was TERRIBLE. Apparently its becoming a major in the area (not just that resort). Just keep that in mind :) 

Future Brides.. We asked for our guests not to bring gifts, their attendance was all we wanted. With that being said, people still gave them. We had a basket on our welcome table at the reception for favors, the wedding team made that into a gift/card basket later on into the evening. The brought the cards over but there was a gift bag sitting next to it which went missing towards the end of the night. Come to find out it was jewelry. I was very disappointed...

 

So lesson learned. If people bring gifts DO NOT leave them on any tables which are not occupied by guests.

I was married on the beach at 5pm.... The ceremony is so quick that it's not bad. As far as the seaweed, I read that this was a problem and asked that they make sure to clear it. There wasn't one ounce of sea grass on the beach near my ceremony! Also the spectators are respectful. The staff doesn't allow people to stand close or walk through your ceremony. We were married by the pier and we had about 75 people watch our ceremony but they all stood along the rail out of the photographers sight. It was actually cool to turn around after the loss and see an additional 75 people crying and clapping for us. I didn't mind.

Also if you're concerned about the heat, put your programs on fans.

Agreed. I had read this before from other brides mentioning gifts had been taken. I made my mother in law in charge of watching the chest and emptying it periodically. As far as I know we didn't miss anything. That said I didn't ask for gifts either but like you said people still bring them so everyone should be prepared.

So I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have a lot of family and friends who love us and want to see us get married this October. The bad news is that the amount of people booked over exceeded both locations I had for cocktail and reception. For over a year I had my heart set on these locations and due to the amount of guests attending, I have to switch to new locations. This makes me so sad.

 

Can previous brides please tell me if they had their reception in the ballroom or at Zocalo restaurant? If so, can you share your experience of how it went and any photos of your wedding reception?

What locations did you originally have booked? How many do you have booked currently?

@aliyedeinramirez the zocalo restaurant is really nice and you wouldn't need much decor since the walls are so heavily decorated. I took a tour of the location of my bdr and loved it but there is just a $1000 up charge to use it since they have to shut down the restaurant when there is an event. Plus you have AC so if it's raining or too hot you don't have to worry. The decor is yellow with Browns, so much prettier tho.

Hi! I originally had zocalo terrace for the cocktail hour and Zavas plaza for the reception. The Miami coordinator just told me that Zocalo restaurant only can hold up to 100 ppl. :-( we have 105 booked with about 15 people let to book this week.

I had a cocktail hour in the Ballroom. It was decorated very nicely. I got married October 11th with 70 guests. Whichever location you choose, they will make it beautiful!!!!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
