    Yay, my wedding day is exactly 30 days from today :-)
    We're leaving in 3 weeks though, getting SUPER excited.
    And mildly annoyed that I still haven't been told the location of the reception...
    Oh well, I'm too excited to be overly concerned about that minor detail :-) I'm sure it'll be great no matter where it is!!!

      I wasn't told my location until I met with Natalia. It will be fine-they are so organized and will give you plenty of options.

I'm wanting to have a welcome happy hour for my guests the day before the wedding (Friday night welcome party and Saturday evening wedding). Does anyone have suggestions for a suitable place? Maybe the Lobby Bar? It doesn't really need to be a private event. I just want to include a location in the intinerary for my guests so we have a common meeting place. Any suggestions are appreciated! Do you think I need to make a reservation and provide hors' doeurves for this sort of thing or should I just include it in the itinerary so everyone shows up?

        Thanks!

        Amy,

        For Friday night you could always have everyone meet you for dinner at the World Cafe Buffet. There is no private event fee as it's not private. We just got maried on May 1st and we had our "Rehearsal/Welcome Dinner" there the night before. It was free of charge and they set up a table for 27 and we had our own waiters. It was really great. We had it at 6:30pm and then you can all go to the sugar reef bar after and watch the entertainment.

        Or, if you just want everyone to meet for a "Welcome Happy Hour" I would suggest meeting at the Sugar Reef Bar. It's outside and in a central location. I would not recomend ordering hors D'ouerves. There is seating around the bar that is first come first serve, you could check with the WC to see if that is something you could reserve.

I have one question though because I cannot really find the answer to. Just wondering what time everyone had their receptions at? Does anyone know the earliest one can have the reception at? Thanks

          Hey there! Welcome!

          Just got married on May 1st and our ceremony was at 3pm, cocktail hour at 5:30 at lobby bar and dinner at 6:30pm on the beach followed by DJ and dancing!. I was told that 6:30 was the earliest we could do dinner. It worked out perfectly!

          Hope this helps,
          Katie

            So exciting! I remember being in your shoes 2 months ago. We origonally picked El Patio Terrace as our reception location, but when we got there they told us it would have to be the beach because we were having a DJ and you can't have a DJ at the restaurant because there are other guests there. We had our reception on the beach and it was awesome!! A little sandy and windy, but awesome!!

              Sunbride,

              If you want to update the price list, the Tiffany chairs are now $18usd...so ridiculous! I really wanted them but I'm not getting them now cuz I won't be able to live with myself if I pay $18usd per chair! And I didn't know this but I found out it's $60usd to get an isle runner...not getting that either! lol

                Hey Katie,

                You mentioned it was windy on the beach---was it too windy? My worry with the beach is that I don't want people to eat with sand in their food. How did your meal go on the beach?

                  Our times are the same! I am getting married at 3pm and my worry is that people won't have things to do until 5:30 and be bored before the cocktail hour. I was happy because I could do pictures and then have the happy hour to mix with everyone--I want to enjoy it too!

                    Same thing just happened with me!!! Landy said I cannot have Seaside grill because I only have 30 people!!! Therefore, they have moved me to the Dolphin Pool Terrace??Thoughts anyone?? At least we don't have to pay the private fee or pay for a dancefloor. I'm thinking of having the cocktail reception on the beach then moving to the pool terrace....I did call Landy out on this, as well as the back and forth with the bonfires. Remember how after the closing they said bonfires were out...then, someone went down rite after and they were on....and now of course, they are back off!!!! so annoying!! I'm now just getting excited to get down there and enjoy it instead of waiting and worrying..I know it will be great no matter what:))

                      I dont think you need an isle runner. The sand is packed pretty well by the wedding canopy. I was fine with out it
