Lindz, we need to meet up for a drink!!!

How much did you girls tip D.J. Mannia and Landy? I know I've seen this a million times, but if someone wouldn't mind sharing that would be great.

Also, let me know what you think about this...my ceremony is at 6:00, and we have d.j. mannia, so basically, if we did cocktail hour at 7-8, we wouldn't be done eating dinner until like 8:30-9, and have to be done with d.j. mannia at 10:30? I think that's not long at all...so, I'm thinking of a cocktail hour before the wedding? From 5:00-6:00, wedding at 6:00-6:30, and rite after group pics, the guests can head to the reception and begin eating rite away. I'm not concerned about eating honestly, I'm sure I'll get it in at some point..that way, we could get moving with d.j. mannia, etc. Let me know your thoughts, and if anyone can weigh in on how much photos, reception actually take, please let me know!!!

Thanks!!!
Lonna
you're right, that sounds tight. Plus many brides have said dinner service is slow, I think you should plan more like 1.5 hours. Which would bring you to 9:30pm. But many brides have been allowed to have music till 11pm. So it's up to you if 1.5 hours is enough.

You could always skip the cocktail hour if you want. Just a suggestion.

Once again, frustrating how there seem to be inconsistencies!!!

But then what is the difference between the half day and full day if neither includes breakfast? The way I read it was the full day included breakfast.

A friend of mine took a pic of the food before he ate it because he couldn't see it! It looked really good! The pic is burried somewhere in my photos on photobucket. You could feel the sand hitting you a little and it did seem to blow in my face quite a bit.

hope this helps. If you have any other questions, just shoot me a message.

Thanks for the help Katie. I am thinking about having the reception inside instead since I am getting married in December and just want to make sure the weather won't affect the dancing/food. :) This was extremely helpful.

Lonna I am def. in for a drink! I can't wait! I also think that the cocktail hour before sounds soooo great...(almost an idea I might consider myself!)

 

 

Girls-- Thank you all for the response on the day pass...I will probably try to get the half day cost!

 

Sorry another question, has anyone done their wedding with Natalia? I just found out she is our wedding planner and wanted to get your thoughts on your experience with her. Thanks!

Sorry for the misunderstanding, I was trying to point out the difference. The half-day does not include breakfast, whereas the full day does. From what I see, that appears to be the only difference. Strange that breakfast costs $25??

Hi Lonna, seems like your priority is to have more time for music and dancing afterwards so heres a thought... as you dont mind your guests seeing you before the ceremony at your cocktail hour why dont you start even earlier and get all your group pictures done beforehand as well.

You could even get your couple shots done too, it may seem like a pain to be ready this much earlier than your ceremony but in my opinion we dont get to wear our dresses for long enough on the day any-way!

That way you could have much more time after and get to eat, I know you say you dont mind not eating but you're gonna need something after a full day of chaos and champagne!

Its nice to see people thinking about doing things a little differently, I think a DW really gives us the opportunity to think outside the box.

Good Luck with everything.

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
