Hey all, I have just spent ages catching up on all the posts! I love my wee fix of DW!
Karenk â€“ glad to hear the DJ app worked well, Iâ€™m planning on using it too but havenâ€™t actually got round to downloading it yet. Must do that tonight! Thanks also for the info about the wine â€“ we shall just need to stick to tequila J Thanks also for mentioning you forgot about a dinner playlist â€“ I would totally have overlooked that part of the night!
Mikeycelle â€“wow wow wow! You looked absolutely beautiful and a huge congratulations! Thanks for your amazing review, itâ€™s the perk of my day to read about the GP, especially when it was so wonderful for you. Itâ€™s great to hear Vanessa and the team were so accommodating for you and that all your guests had a great time. We will definitely take note of the Adult Pool and Sunset Disco for our evenings!
Your story about your dress made me laugh, Iâ€™m glad it all worked out in the end and is certainly a story to tell the kids when they come along!
We are also having cocktail hour at Las Rocas, although weâ€™re having it after our meal so we can have dancing etc then, and hopefully it will be a little cooler as well.
Your first dance sounds so dreamy with the cold fireworks and sparklers, definitely a memory to cherish. We had decided not to go for the mariachi band but looking at your photos, I think weâ€™ll need to reconsider!
Thanks for the advice about having everything ready for each vendor in a named envelope â€“ the will help for sure on the day. I totally teared up reading your words of advice, it was lovely and great advice. I am so looking forward to our wedding now!
Carlota â€“ I am a fellow Pintrest addict â€“ my wedding board just gets bigger and bigger by the day! Your choice of flowers are also beautiful and itâ€™s great to hear you found a vendor with prices you liked!
Bre and Casey â€“ I think with the package changes our options are slightly different so not sure if I can offer any advice on the timeline side of things. I think very similar to Carlota, we are having ceremony 4-5, drinks/photos 5-6.30, dinner 6.30-8.30 and then cocktail hour at Las Rocas 9-11 In the UK it is traditional to have the first dance after the meal so this will be at Las Rocas for us, followed by dancing and drinking! I am going to ask Vanessa if we can pay a little extra and stay till 12 though as I notice Carlota is able to stay till midnight. This is the great thing about these forums, you get ideas and information you would never think to ask for.
Lauren â€“ great question as to when and how to give payment/tips â€¦ Iâ€™d be interested in everyoneâ€™s opinions here too. I guess it would usually be the best manâ€™s job to take care of all the money but it might be nice to deal with it all beforehand if possible.
Chreetena â€“ Oh my goodness, it will be you so soon. I hope you are all organised and relaxing now and really just looking forward to a wonderful wedding and holiday into the bargain! I canâ€™t wait to hear all about it â€“ hopefully it will be the wedding of your dreams. Good Luck!
