For all you June brides....

Recommended Posts

I know i am a little ahead of the game but would like to get an idea of what time i should do. I am getting married at Dreams Los Cabos next June '08 and was thinking of starting the ceremony at 6:00 pm. But i think that would be to late b/c by the time people will eat( ceremony, pictures etc.), it will be 8:00 already..I am getting married on the beach so i really don't want the sand to be too hot for people to walk on it...

 

What time are you going to start your ceremony?

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi Brandy,

 

Just curious what day are you getting married? I was suggested to have it around 5pm/6pm. It might be around 7:00 or 8:00 but your on vacation and unless your guests are not okay with eating that late I dont see it being a problem.

we are starting our ceremony at 6pm. But it does make the evening feel short...

 

both my coordinators (maye cortinas and emeline from the hilton) suggested 6pm

 

a quick rundown of our timetable:

 

5:45pm - guests seated

6 - 6:30 ceremony

6:30 - 7:30 cocktail hour/ time for pics

7:30 - 8:30 dinner

8:15 toasts

Jessica- I am getting married on June 21st....the weekend after your wedding. What time are you looking at? Are you getting married on the beach?

 

Kashmira- Maye also recommends that i get married between 5 or 6 b/c it wouldn't be as hot then.

I am planning on getting married on the beach. Still trying to convince family members that this is a good idea!! Can't wait to actually go down there and see it!

5pm Ceremony

5:30-6:30pm Cocktail hour

6:30pm-8pm Dinner

8pm-11pm Dancing & Party

I leave on May 29! So crazy how fast it is coming up!!

 

I'll be in Cabo May 29 - June 5 .... I'm leaving at 5:50pm on the day of your wedding so I won't be able to crash!! Sad! If you need to borrow anything, we could meet up on June 4? When do you go? Are you all ready?

 

We are honeymooning later in June (we have to come back right after our wedding for FI to finish school - he's a teacher) - but the good thing is that I can get my review posted for everyone right away!

My wedding is June 23rd and my ceremony is scheduled for 6:30. My thinking is that I really don't want it to be blistering hot. We're going to do some pics before the ceremony as well as some during the cocktail hour. The sun sets about 8pm, so I figured this leaves an hour for pics before the sun sets.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
