    Tina,

     

    I understand what you are saying, but I am holding my cocktail hour on the lobby terrace right outside of the lobby bar.  This way people can just go and get their own drinks if they want to at no extra cost to us.  If some want to stay with us while we take pictures at the ceremony area they can, but then we plan to migrate around the resort for unique candid shots and at that point they can go up to the lobby terrace.  We will have pre-recorded jazz music playing and they can relax or go and freshen up and either way we are ok because we would not have spent a penny : )!

    My fear with having a cocktail party is that most of my guest will stay with us at the beach to take pictures and miss the cocktail hour or some may want to freshen up a bit before dinner.  I mean is cocktail hour really necessarily if it's an all-inclusive and everyone can just hang out at the bar for a few drinks?  I guess I want to be a part of all of the fun lol...

      Nikki are you concerned at all about the music?  I would love to create various play list on an IPod or on my laptop for the dinner and possible rent a reggae band or steel drum band for the beach party.  How are you managing?

        Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a certain time they won't go past for weddings? I've read for certain resorts that 4 pm was the latest they would hold weddings.. is that the case at the Iberostars?

          No, I just had one of our friends who is a DJ to make different CD's for us.  I will have 4 total: one for the welcome gathering, the ceremony, cocktail, and wedding dinner.  We are having a reggae band after the rehearsal dinner and a DJ during the reception after dinner.

              Hello ladies:  I know I have been absent for a while but I have had a lot of catching up to do since we returned.  I posted my full review of our wedding earlier but I never got around to posting the pics.  Well here they are!!  THe link to the website is:

              THese are the pics from our photographer.  He was amazing.  I highly recommend Michael Saab photgraphy.  If you have any questions feel free to ask.  I know that there are a lot of pics but you will get to see it all.  Our ceremony was at the lazy river and the reception was Aunt Ruby's

              Happy Planning

                I like that idea, i thought about it but my fiance shot me down, but I'm pretty sure they probably will be using that bar anyway.  I'ma run that past him again because we are also using the terrace.
