Don't worry I am sure your wedding is going to be amazing! I am sure they have everything checked off & are on top of it. I hope you hear from them soon!

Hi BeachBride! 

 

Congrats on your engagment!  I guess they do 3 weddings a day!  Ours is at 4pm that day and we are workin gwith Lleny Gomez.  Who is your WC?  I just got my date confirmed about 2 weeks ago so I feel a little behind and overwhelmed!  Have you decided what you are doing for the reception yet?  Where you are having it and if you are getting a DJ?  There are so many details!

For our reception we used starfish and sandollars to distinguish which guests were having fish vs beef. We did not create an actual seating arrangement but upon arriving to the event terrace there was a table with the place cards for each of the guests. We allowed the guests to choose where they sat which worked out great!

Hi Everyone!

 

We are having our reception starting at 7 pm. I believe it would then go to 11 pm right (we are at the event terrace). Does anyone know the cost if we wanted to extend it to midnight?

 

Thanks!

I think the reception is only 3 hours long - so it goes to 10p.  I extended mine to 11p and the charge is based pp, I believe it is $23 each?

Actually, I just checked my emails and they are charging me $560 for the extra hour (and I have 35 guests).  Not sure how they calculated that cost?  I was told something different earlier from another coordinator, and this quote is actually cheaper than what they gave me.

 

I extended mainly because I booked their DJ and the minimum time is 4 hours and then the reception is only 3, so I extended.

Only to 10pm? What kind of party is that?!? Yikes I did not think it would be so expensive! I wonder if I could to do 11:30 what they would charge for 1 1/2 hours?

lliaPSU - Your wedding is coming very quickly!!! We will be there at the same time. Ours is on the 17th but we arrive on the 14th, one day after your wedding :)

 

I have also read that the reception includes 3 hours so if it starts at 7pm the package would include up to 10pm. We are starting at 6:30pm and going to 9:30pm, then heading to the theater for a show and dancing at the disco afterwards.

Sharon99 -  Your Etsy purchases are super cute! I thought it would be fun to "leave behind" some fun wedding stuff that other EPM brides could use for free, but not sure how that would work - or with the turnover on the wedding coordinators, if it would translate and "pay forward" longer than a week or two (or even a couple of days).

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
