Wedding Day Schedule of Events

Recommended Posts

I'm curious to hear what everyone's wedding day events are starting with the ceremony, regardless of resort. Are you doing a cocktail hour, private dinner, dinner at a restaurant, reception, etc... Are you keeping your guests occupied during your pictures? Or are you suggesting they go to a resort bar and get a drink for example? Are you having a mariachi and if so, when are you having them play?

 

Sorry for all the questions, but I'd love to hear details....but in a nutshell!! ( :

Were doing ceremony @ 4pm, pictures (we may book a cocktail party for the guests - but if not I'm sure they can find there way to the nearest bar :), then a private reception @ 6:30pm (with dance - debating DJ vs Ipod).

Hi,

 

We are acctually doing our pictures before the ceremony we are getting married at 5pm. I don't want to miss the sun for pictures :) We also decided it would be nice to have our time together during the chaos. We are than having the cocktail hour at 6pm followed by the reception from 7pm - 12am. We are having the mariachis play during the cocktail hour. Originally this was diffrent because we were planning a non-resort wedding in playa. So we were going to have guests just go to a bar for a drink. We ended up deciding on the The Royal Playa Del Carmen because we want a more private affair. Good luck! Let us know what venue you end up picking.

We are doing the ceremony at 5pm with a mariachi band playing, then a cocktail hour, then a dinner reception at an on site restaurant. The night before we will all be eating dinner together as a group-kind of like a welcome dinner. wink.gif

We are doing...

 

Ceremony - 1pm

Cocktail Reception - 145 to 245

Informal Meetup at the Lobby Bar - 245 to 6

Dinner and Dancing Reception - 6 to 10

 

Both the cocktail reception and dinner reception are private. We'll probably do our pictures after the cocktail reception. The bar meet up is optional and informal - just a place for guests to meet up if they want to keep the party going for a little bit. I doubt that people will meet up for the entire time.

 

I wish we could have gotten our ceremony later - but no luck there!!

So, is the mariachi band playing when you walk down the aisle? I love the "welcome dinner" idea!

I actually really like the idea of the "informal meetup" in between the cocktail hour and dinner. That makes me want to have an earlier ceremony!

We are having our ceremony at 4 p.m. followed by Cocktails for an hour. I am not sure

what time our dinner will start, I am guessing 6:30 or 7. The resort hasn't given me these details, I only know the ceremony time for sure.

In June the sunset is around 7:30 pm. and my WC suggested me:

 

4:30 - 5:30 pm. Bride & Groom photo session

5:30 - 6:00 pm. refresh my make up

6:00 - 6:30 pm. Ceremony

6:30 - 7:30 pm. Photos with friends and family while guests are having cocktails

7:30 - 8:00 pm. Get everyone seated for bride and groom reception entrance song

8:00 - 9:30 pm. Starts Dinner

9:30 - 10:00 pm. Cake, Toast and first dance

10:00 pm. Party starts now!

 

The sunset is the most important thing for me, so the program depends on it. You can also check out the sunset-sunrise, weather and moon calendar in her site (Links) Yazmin De La Mora - Weddings & Catering Good luck!smile78.gif
