We have a choice of either having our photographer shoot our welcome dinner on the beach at Tabasco's (will include slideshow) or the RD on the boat.

 

The welcome dinner is 6-9 pm and is a little more casual but we have the whole restaurant to ourselves.

 

The RD is from 5:00-7:30 (we will catch the sunset and possibly see some whales) but I am unsure about how close the quarters will be. The boat can accomodate around 150, and I think we have 125ish coming.

 

which would you choose and why?

 

 

eta our photographer said that the light will be good for both, and did not have an opinion as to which he would prefer to shoot.

i do think the boat sounds nice but i shot a RD on a boat in the bahamas once and it was very difficult because the boat was overcrowded. if youre not worried about over crowding then the boat would be a nice change :)

I think the RD because I feel like on the boat there's a lot more chance for overcrwding or even rocking which may interfere with the pics... BUT I would definitely assign at least one friend with a good camera and a good eye to take tons of pics on the boat too...

 

hmmm... ok, I'm not sure... this is a tough one. Maybe the boat is better because it's so different from the wedding reception... ok, that was no help at all.

I voted for the boat. I think the pictures will be a lot different than your wedding reception pictures, so you'll have more of a mix. Not to mention, if you do see some whales, you could get some awesome shots!

I voted for the restaurant only because a boat might have some bland colors (other than sunset). Blue water and white boat. Whereas a building might have a more festive, colorful atmosphere and just a more dynamic setting. But maybe I am biased because I get extremely seasick and would just imagine myself turning green on a boat (not photogenic!)

The reason why I voted for the welcome dinner is because I think the mood will be more relaxed and at ease. The boat would be nice but I know I would get sea sick so I wouldn't want a pic of me puking off the side. LOL

 

just kidding!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
