I know!!!! My original wedding date was supposed to be Labor Day weekend and when I switched to Nov I was so upset b/c it felt sooo far away!!! Im still in disbelief that we're only 2-3 months out!! It seemed like when we first started talking we were so naive and uninformed. Now we're like experts. Its so funny to see how state of minds have changed lol

 

Its funny I just received the invitation for the wedding Im going to in Mexico the day of your wedding. All I could think was, "wow, a little late huh?" lol

Anyhooo....

I remember when we started talking at the beginning of the year and it seemed like Nov/Dec would take forever to get here! We're in the home stretch! So excited... thewave.gif

I hadnt thought of that until you mentioned it. That way you dont have to make a playlist for dinner. I never know what kind of music to play during that time lol

 

As far as speeches, Ive seen them done right at the end of dinner and also right before dinner is served. I guess it depends on your preference and everything flows together. I think Im going with the right after dinner. I plan to get all the traditional wedding stuff out of the way asap so we can have more time to party! :)

I know that:

 

4:00 Ceremony

5:00 Cocktail (w/ General Music playing from a docking station, Bride/Groom take photos)

6:00 Dinner/Speeches

7:00 Mariachi ?

8:00 Cake/Mayan Coffee

8:00 plus - General Music Playing/Dance of some sort

 

My Questions is...Should I have General music playing around 7:00 and do that Mariachi at 5:00 during Cocktail Hour or Have the mariachi at 7:00 and have general music playing during the cocktail party. Thoughts?

 

Also...Do Speeches go before/After or During Dinner?

 

Our wedding was at 4, 5-6 cocktail hour (Mexican Trio played), Dinner was from 6:00-7:00ish, then speeches and cake followed (this only took about 30 minutes bc I wanted to get the party started!), then we danced from 7:30-10:30, then moved to the resort club till 2:30. Don't stress over a time schedule. The only thing that started on time was our ceremony. Everything else just followed.

 

Most people do speeches after dinner. If you want to save time, you could do the speeches during dinner.

Wow! That is a bit late...Are you planning to go back to Mexico in December? Are they getting married at the same resort? 

On another note, did you ask Dulce how many other weddings there are on your day? I'm curious to know how many others have been scheduled on mine...
 

Have fun at your shower tomorrow! Can't wait to hear how it went... :-)

(Hoping for pre-wedding massage)

 

Then mani-pedi

 

One of my guests is a professional makeup artist and haristylist so she is handling most of our hair and makeup....

 

I am hoping to get a nap in but I am guessing this is naive of me lol.

 

Our wedding is starting at 6...since sunset isn't until after 7 in May.

 

While my fiance and I do not want to see one another before the wedding we are going to start pictures with our wedding party around 4.  He will take pictures with the groomsman and bridemaids and visa versa.

 

We are actually having a hour and half cocktail hour so we can be there for a large portion of it.  FI and I are gonna sneak away for 45 min to take pics together.

 

Party to start by 8...with dinner and dancing to continue on in disco :)

Are you kidding me???  The package prices that they sent us before we told them what we wanted weren't even that high!!!  It should definately not cost that much.  The max prices even for the biggest package was 2,500 for 4 hours!!  sad.gif

 

Can I ask what package you were asking for?  I know they asked what our decor was but we aren't going crazy over other decor.  (Just told my FI what your quote was and he just hit the roof).  So far DJ is biggest headache.
 

 

When we get our quote I will let you know what it is.  Let me know if you want me to email you the info that Yazmin sent to us to compare to what you got. ~Mia

I emailed Dulce 2 weeks ago and never heard back from her.  This might be because my wedding is 9 months away though...

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
