    Has anyone else been told about this? Is anyone doing a cocktail party? If so, how much is costing you per person approximately?
    My wedding is at 3pm. I set the reception to start at 5. I figured if it's over at 9 anyone who wants to go to a disco can go to their room and change and then meet around 10 for the disco. I'm not doing a cocktail reception the day of the wedding. I hadn't thought about what people would do in between the wedding and the reception. I guess that's one more thing I should start thinking about.

      Meghan,

      That's interesting your reception could start at 5:30pm. Our contract with Karisma says that private events can start no earlier than 6:00pm and end no later than 11:00pm, giving very little wiggle room to vary the reception time.

Now I have to get motivated to pick a site to do a wedding website....and I will go with on of my BM to try on dresses for the first time next week. It seems so far away but I am such a procrasitnator I have decided I am going to try to get as much done as early as I can. We'll see how that works.
        Its great to see how much you all are getting done!!
        We use weddingwindow.com

        It's not free but it's a fantastic site!

          We're not doing a cocktail hour between the ceremony and reception. After all, this isn't a typical wedding where guests are either stranded at a church or at closed reception hall killing time between the two events. They're at a fabulous AI resort! Our guests will have plenty to do without us actually planning something during that time: the tequila bar, one of the outdoor bars, sipping cocktails in the Wave Lounge...they'll be just fine!

              Amy that's gorgeous - looks like it will really suit your figure (as you have the perfect one to pull off a dress like that!)

              and I'm loving the pink underneath!

                  hmmmm....i have not been told yet that I could do that. Amy suggested it and said that is what she is doing. Amy, have you been told that you can start your reception at 7?

                    Yeah - when I decided on times I was on the phone with Tiffany and we worked backwards from 11pm. Its all on my Spreadsheet. I didn't think they had time constraints on private events. That would be weird!

                      I agree :). There's tons for them to do. They all have rooms and will be familiar and comfortable with the resort that they can do whatever they want!
