ROR poolside start/end time

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if someone could tell me if there is a set start and end time for the Poolside dinner/reception. I think I read somewhere that it can't start until 8:30, is that accurate? If so what would you suggest we do with a group of 50 after the 4pm ceremony.

 

Is there a set time for the Seagrape reception?

 

Thanks,

Ours went from about 7:00 - 11:00 since they took a little longer in setting up...

 

Our guests just went to the lobby bar area and had some drinks. It worked out really well. We had appetizers after the ceremony (about 4:30-5:30) so there wasn't much time to wait around.

Hey Dr. Brainfreeze. I'm thinking about doing the poolside reception as well. My question is could you hear the beach party from where you where? I'm assuming they do beach parties every Saturday. I'm worried some of the party people in our group might leave our reception to go down there. So I'm sort of thinking about moving the date to a Monday instead of Saturday. Thanks

oooh I'm booked for a saturday as well, and I would love to know this. Also, does the beach party include fire dancers? That might be a HUGE distraction (and i would hate for people to miss one of the coolest things about the resort!) Is it always saturday?

Hi!

 

You could hear the beach party a little, but it was not really a distraction. You could also see it if you looked to the right, leaning over the railing. Currently, I believe they are doing them on Saturday nights, but this may change from time to time (I think they might have been on Fridays at some point). I think maybeour guests left to walk down and check it out, but I am not sure, and it didn't bother me, since they came back.

 

Yes, I believe the party includes fire dancers.

 

Again, people are there for your wedding. There are other events that they will be able to experience. But, if you are worried, you may want to consider changing the day. Sat worked best for us since we had people coming for only 3 days, and travel costs for us was cheaper for Wed-Tues.

 

The party does end around 11:30. We caught the very very tail end.

Thanks for the info, I think we are just wanting to do the poolside dancing, does anyone know what times are available for that? our ceremony is at 4:00 so we were going to do the dinner at 6:30 and then start the dancing reception at either 8:30 or 9 if that is an option.

We were going to do the same but then we were wondering how the transfering of people from the dinner to the pool for dancing would work out. Seemed like a lot of manuvering and transfering of decorations (for us) so we just decided to have everything at the poolside and make it a seamless transition.

 

Just something to think about...

Yes it is something to think about, I also just read that if you go with the free wedding and have over 50 then you have to pay for a private reception. were looking at having over 60 so this really might be the thing to do instead, but we will see, whichever is cheaper is the way we are going most likely.
