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!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
