I'm getting married in Montego Bay, Jamaica on November 25 and I can't make a decision on how I should arrange the day. Should I have an early wedding or an afternoon one? Should I have a reception lunch, or just wait until we get back on the boat? Basically, I still want my guests to be able to visit the island.
Here's what I'm thinking so far:
We're supposed to be in Montego Bay, at 9:00 AM
9:00: Guests depart ship
9:30: Guests transported to wedding site (beach that is 15-20 mins. away)
10:30 Pictures and Cake/Champagne Reception
11:30 Guests transported back to ship (change/lunch/excursion, etc.)
Later that night, we we're going to have a cocktail hour on the ship, before dinner...
Does that sound okay My only problem with this is that I have to get dressed twice. (one for the ceremony and then reception on the ship).
Any suggestions would help!!!

We are getting married in St Thomas and we have to go to the courthouse 1st to sign paperwork so... I'll give you an idea ab my schedule (ok so clearly im making it up as i go and then I'll cut and paste it and have it done haha)
Our ship docks in St Thomas at 7 am (shiptime which is 8 am island time). We leave St Thomas at 6pm.
9:00 Breakfast for the entire group in the ships dining room
9:45-10 the entire group will debark the ship (together this is why we have everyone meeting up at breakfast)
10-10:20 Entire group will be transported to the beach (which is far from the port)
11 am Wedding begins
12 Wedding ends (it"ll prolly end closer to 11:30-11:45 if it starts on time lol)
12-12:20 group transported to Reception venue
12:30-!2:45 reception luncheon begins
2:30 Leave reception for island tour
3:30 Island tour ends
3:30 -5:30 free time to shop or hit the beach (most likely ppl will go back to the ship at this point)
Now here are the amendments
FI will debark between 8- 8:30am and be transported to courthouse. He will then return to the ship and board the bus to the wedding site with the rest of the group.
I will debark between 9-9:30 and be transported to the courthouse. I will then head straight to the wedding site.
We will travel on the buses with the rest of the group for the rest of the day.

I have changed my package with Almarie due to some of the great ideas and suggestions on this site. I would to talk with you more regarding some of your plans and the prices she quoted you.
