Hmm, that's really interesting. I was thinking 5 ceremony, 6-7 cocktail. 7 dinner. I'm positive that has to be a typo about dinner. How large is your group?

That's what we did for our layout. Worked perfect. With 45 people was perfect time :)

Thanks ladies, I emailed them last night with my response. We have about 70 guests including us there :)

If anyone would like me to post the menus from the restaurants for rehearsal dinner then let me know and I'll do so.

That's a good number!!! You will definately need 2 hours! If you are doing group and family photos those in themselves will take time. We had 45 people and those took a good 30 mins on there own. I highly recommend you make a list of all those group/family photos you want and give them to someone to usher people around. My MC (brother in law) did and he was just perfect. He'd call out who was next and get everyone together. Made it go smooth and nothing got missed. Your head will be out of the game so it's best not to rely on yourself for that :) let us know what they say.

@@emjay84 We will have about 70 guests as well. I would love if you could share the menus. Where are you having your reception dinner? I wanted to do it in the Palapa, however we are getting married on a Wednesday, and unfortunately the Palapa isn't available.

 

This goes out to the whole group:

 

We are having our reception dinner in one of the restaurants - probably the Italian Restaurant. It will be private which is good. We want to have a DJ and our first dances in there as well. Has anyone done this/heard of anyone having a DJ and their first dances etc in one of the restaurants?

 

Thanks!

Hey Alex @@AlexC

 

Recently I haven't heard of anyone using the restaurant for the reception, but that could be because they didn't have a package that supported it.  I believe Gold and higher you can have it privately with a DJ and dancing, but the silver and free packages are semi-private -- that could be why they chose to do the 'after party' package instead (the one at the beach or health bars).

 

If you have the package that is private, I say go for it!!!!  You can easily move from dinner to the dancing!!  It would be air conditioned as well which would be super nice. We were sweating in the palapa!!

Do you have the menu for the Italian Restaurant? That's where I'm requesting my rehearsal dinner.

I have a question about the length of the symbolic ceremony. I am not a wedding guru and have no idea how long these take. Specifically I'm just trying to get enough time for photographs with my family and the bridal party before the reception.

 

My timeline right now looks like this (on the Palapa Beach): 4pm ceremony, 5-6pm live music, champagne and apps, 6pm reception starts.

 

It also looks like the sun will set at 607pm.

 

Is my guess off to say (if the ceremony starts on time) it will only take 15 minutes or so?

Hey hey :) I'm posting the menus for you to look at. I heard the ceremonies are about 30 minutes in length. post-281203-144407742511_thumb.jpgpost-281203-14440774393_thumb.jpgpost-281203-144407744672_thumb.jpg

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
