Anyone doing a privacy sign for ceremony??

Recommended Posts

We are thinking of doing a privacy sign for our beach ceremony. Something along the lines of, "please respect our privacy for our wedding". Anyone done this or thinking of doing this?

That sounds like it might be a good idea. I'm worried about a million people being in the background of my pics because we can't afford to do a completely private ceremony. I'm interested to see if anyone else has done this.

 

We could always use the free signs on VistaPrint for this DIY!!

From the weddings that I've seen, the hotel does a good job of clearing a section off for the wedding. Either way, you're still going to have people hanging around. Something about weddings that people can't keep away. From the ones that I've seen, people are always respectful and just happy to be around it.

 

It would be good to hear what others have done.

I'm not. I think people may take offense and disobey. I think it is inferred and people just understand that they were not invited. I haven't heard of anyone having probs at our resort from past brides, but if you are worried it might not be a bad idea. I would talk to the wedding coordinator and see what policies they have inplace to keep people out of wedding territory during ceremony.

I think it could be a cute idea and definitely wouldn't hurt. I also would hope that the WC's will keep spectators in check, but assume there will always be a few.

 

Good Luck!

I think it would depend on the layout of where you are getting married.

 

My brother just got married at the Mona Surfrider in Honolulu and had a big problem with people standing there and watching (but they knew in advance that this would happen).

 

They got married on a lawn looking onto the beach. There was a fence that separated the lawn from the beach but once beach-goers saw a wedding was going on they all lined up along the fence and were literally an arm's length away from where the bridal party was standing. I don't think there would've been anything they could've done to prevent what happened but the photographer said he could photoshop all the people out.

 

It was actually kind-of funny to see all the people standing there and I guess that is what you are to expect at the location they choose. One bright spot was that one of the people watching was a semi-pro photographer who ended up taking pictures of the wedding. He found one of the groomsmen and swapped email addresses and then burned a whole disc of great photos for my brother and his wife. The photos were fantastic!

 

Good luck and post pictures if you come up with a sign!

    • 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.
