Timeline/plan for ahr


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out what the night should look like. We have already booked a hall and a friend on the family will be doing music for dancing after dinner. Our contact at the hall recomended everyone arrive for 5:30pm then eat at 6 but that seems a little early to me and I'm wondering what to do the rest of the night? I'd love to hear how other people are organizing the evening/night?

it depends on what exactly you want. for us it's just a welcome back home party. so we are treating it as such. if you are doing a reception - then you should plan it out a little bit more traditional. like a wedding reception. but all this depends on what you and your FI want. there are many people on here that are doing a BBQ and other who are doing a full on wedding reception.

We're doing 5:00-5:45 apps and everyone arrives

6:00-7:00 is dinner

7:00-7:15 is "first dance" cutting of the cake

7:15-7:30 is thank-you's to family members and everyone for coming

7:30-10:00 drinking and dancing!


We are going to be there when everyone is arriving (no formal entrance) but we'll be in our wedding gear to get pics done with family/friends who coudln't make it!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
