The wedding is at 4 p.m. and then I guess from what I am reading they tell us when the dinner is. Are we separate from the rest of the guests or do we have to book it. If we want to have the dances such as mother and son, daughter and father, etc. Where do we do that.? I won't overwhelm you with questions, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
I don't mind answering any questions you may have. I received so much help from BDW ladies and I would be more than happy to help someone else. Our wedding was at 4pm as well. It was at the Plaza Gazebo so after the ceremony, me and my husband and our bridal party did our exit walk down the plaza gazebo and met Chantelle at the table she setup with our Champagne and rum punch. Chantelle handed me, my husband and our guest champagne. The photographer and videographer continued to video and take pictures. The Photographer ask me and my husband to pose for numerous pictures while our guest took their own pics of us, socialized or enjoyed their beverages. Since our wedding was at the plaza gazebo our guest also went to the bar for mixed drinks, etc. My husband and I did leave our guest for about 40 minutes to take pictures on the beach. And then we returned and took more pictures at the gazebo with our wedding guest. Our photo video time went quickly because the sunset at about 6:00 pm. Everyone stayed at the gazebo and socialized or enjoyed a drink from the bar and then we all went to Mahoe Bay for the dinner/reception.
If I am not mistaken, you will need to let Chantelle know which dinner slot you want. I believer there are 2 (6:30 or 9:00 pm). You can have your dances after the ceremony on the beach or at the plaza gazebo. Just let Chantelle know your plans and she will figure out a way to make it work. Typically, you are only allowed only an hour at the wedding site, according to Chantelle but because I was the last wedding of the day, we were allowed to stay and party as long as we wanted.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have more questions.
