    I need some help, ladies!!!

    Our wedding is at Riu Negril.....Ceremony is at 4pm, dinner is at 9pm... semi-private reception in one of the restaurants.

    My question is.....when do we do our dancing? Right after the ceremony on the beach (I could do the cocktail hour for $10-$15 per person)? Or do they allow you to play music/dance during the dinner?

    I just don't know what to do for a "reception" or how to fill the time between the ceremony and dinner. I don't want to wait to do it at the disco because my son is 9 and won't be allowed in the disco, and I'm not sure how tired he will be by the time dinner is through.

    Any suggestions are appreciated!

      I say dance when you want to dance!!
      It's your wedding and you can do what you want!!

      I personally (well...we!) will be doing our dance right after the ceremony. We'll be doing a toast...then right into the dance! It helps that our ceremony location will be on a clifftop gazebo overlooking the ocean!! It's just such a beautiful spot that I couldn't imagine dancing our first song as husband & wife anywhere else!!

          I am confused about this too. We are doing the beach reception and I thought it would be nice if we did our first dance at that time (after dinner which is in Mammee Bay). I want to be inside a circle of candles in the dark right by the water!

            Oh...wow! That sounds amazing!!!
            We are having a semi-private dinner, with no real reception - so there was really no where else that I though we could do it. I didn't really want it to be at dinner with everyone else in the restaurant looking at us!!

                We're both Newfoundlanders and it really reminds us of home - like a lighthouse on the point!! (minus the palm trees of course!! LOL)

                    Believe me...its not the weather!!!
                    Just the scenery...the ocean & the mountains...lush green forests! It really is beautiful there!

                    probably one of the most famous pics...you can actually hike to where this guy is standing!
