Has anyone out there done a cocktail hour on the beach with open bar and then a private reception at Calabash with an open bar?

 

Trying to decide if I want to go this route and pay the extra money for the bars and private or if I just want to have people go to the lobby after the ceremony and have dinner with a beach party after.

 

Thank you!

Hi All!

 

I am finally back into the swing of planning....took a few months off when I was super busy at work. Now that I am about 5 months away I need to get back on track!

 

Here is my current wedding weekend time line and some questions (figured i'd ask here before i go back and annoy the resort wedding planner again!)

 

Friday, November 7th

  • Bachelor/Bachelorette party at the resort. Planning on going to the spa in the late afternoon with my 5 bridesmaids followed by dinner at the Hibachi restaurant. Do they have nightly entertainment at the resorts? if so, we will probably go to that then to the club. I think that the guys will all just meet us at dinner....I didnt want to seperate the couples that were coming since this is our vacation. On our Wedding Weekend Itinerary i plan on listing this activity as 'optional'

Saturday, November 8th

  • Rehearsal and rehearsal dinner (tentative) pending what the beach party includes....plus I dont want to over schedule things.
  • Beach Party - I will ask the resort wedding planner to section off an area of the hotel's beach party for our guests. Again, this will be listed as 'optional'. Does anyone know what time the Beach Party that the resort throws on Saturday nights starts? Also, what does it include? Dinner? Entertainment? etc.

Sunday, November 9th (Wedding Day)

  • Hired Rashel Edwards for hair/makeup for myself and bridesmaids. Currently I asked here to be onsite by 10:30 am. Not sure if this is too much time or not enough. Does anyone know if I can let my mom use the hair service that I get with my wedding package?
  • 4:30 pm - ceremony (with steel drum band) - again, not sure if this is the best time. I plan on emailing my photographer (Misha Early) to find out when the best time would be for photos etc.
  • 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm (steel drum band to continue) - Cocktail party - again timing pending what the photographer says. I am not sure where I want the cocktail hour to be - has anyone thought about this? Since i plan on having the wedding and reception on the beach should I keep the cocktail hour on the beach also or change it up?
  • 6:30 pm - 11? - Reception (not sure if the hotel lets it go until 11) Right now my plan is to have a reception on the beach with a rented tent, dance floor and lighting. I have received the pricing from the resort and although it is more than I had originally wanted to spend it is really my dream to have the reception under the stars with the ocean!

Monday, November 10th

  • Trash the Dress photo session at Rose Hall (Aqueducts etc)

 

If anyone has any answers to some of these questions I'd love your help!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
