I'm so sorry to hear that your mother isn't talking to you right now. Don't worry, she'll turn around! But congrats on your upcoming GP wedding! My wedding is at 4p, so I can't really say on what you should do, but I'm sure there are plenty of brides on this forum who can help! I would pose your question regarding what do you b/w your 12p ceremony and I'm assuming 6p reception on another area of this forum. Congrats and Happy Planning!

However, my mother through a fit and I of course gave in and decided to have the traditional wedding here in NJ. Well, now that I'm 8 months away from my wedding, my FI and I have decided to cancel our "traditional" wedding here and are doing our dream wedding in Jamaica. We are paying for our wedding and feel that it should be about our wants and not anyone elses. My mothers not speaking to me, but thats a whole other story I'm not going to get into here...So, booked my wedding at GPJ on 11/4/11. Our original wedding date was 11/11/11 but seeing as we're booking so late we cant get that. The only availabe times they had on 11/4/11 were 10am and 12pm. We booked the 12pm. Does anyone have any experience with an afternoon wedding?? Besides it being unbearably hot, will it be weird to have a cocktail hour afterwards at 1??? And then the reception to follow? I just feel like it will be a lunch reception. I guess we can always go out to the disco afterwards...any thoughts?? thanks so much!!
