Argh!!! Wedding date and time!
Posted 23 April 2009 - 03:25 PM
Here's our whole thing, we want the wedding asap after we arrive since I know that I will 1) not eat a thing until the wedding dinner (my friends joke that I'll get there, eat a carrot and balloon!) and 2) I don't want to be worried about it all week! The other thing is that we want it at around 3pm in the afternoon. So far our only option is to arrive on the Saturday or Sunday and have the wedding on the Wednesday at 1pm. I can deal with the Wednesday but 1pm seems way too early in the day for us. I know that other people have loved getting married at this time but for us we're worried that it will be too hot and most of all what the heck does everyone do between the wedding and the dinner!!! I'm really not the change out of my dress and lounge by the pool until dinner type of person and I doubt that our pictures will last 6 hours, lol. I'm just worried that I'll look all hot and frazzled by dinner and will have to fix myself up a million times. Plus, where do I hang out in a wedding dress for that afternoon, lol.
I hope I'm not being all bridezilla about this, I'm just a bit worried about looking good on my wedding day in the first place and I want to make sure that my guests have a great time!
Thanks for listening to my rant!

My wedding is at one, and I have some of the same concerns. I'm think I will have a cocktail reception between the ceremony and dinner, and then have the reception earlier.
I don't really know what your hotel is like, but I've talked with a lot of my friends and they don't think it would be a big deal to put a gap between the ceremony and reception either, since I'm at an AI. There will be plenty of things for people to do, and I can always put my dress back for the reception!

Worst come to worst I guess we'll have to fly there on the Sunday and take the 1pm time. A cocktail reception and a band would help to fill the time. I just keep picturing my poor little grandmother melting in the heat though (we'll be on the beach). Argh! So complicated! We should be hearing back from our TA on Monday so I'll let you know what we figure out...

Mr. & Mrs. Reid
All my life, I prayed for someone like you... and I thank God that I finally found you!

Make sure you please yourselves first! I think you're absolutely right in wanting a later time and you're definately not being a bridezilla!!
