Also- with getting hair and makeup done... There is me plus 4 bridesmaids, what time would we need to get started?

thanks!

I'm in October - I'm getting married at 3 PM though - I want time to have lots of pictures taken between wedding ceremony and reception. I don't want to see my groom before the wedding for any pre-wedding pictures so we need lots of time after the ceremony and before the sun goes down!

I have not ordered my wedding linens yet and I probably won't be ordering from weddinglinensdirect since i'm not sure if they ship to Canada or not - but I have found some comparable sites that do for sure! I think for the sashes I'm going to do satin, no reason why - I just like the way they look :) Our wedding colors are Aqua(turquoise) and Fuchsia so I will probably alternate them between chairs... Not sure about table clothes or anything yet though.

We haven't worked that out yet - I'm not sure what our guests are going to do between ceremony and reception either - I thought 3 was a good time because it leaves room incase our ceremony starts late and depending how long that goes till - then pictures etc. and I think the sunsets at 6:20pm on October 19/10

yeh so I guess keeping it at 4 would be a good idea? I was thinking of moving to 4:30. But if we had it at 4...then the wedding would get over at say 4:30 and then we could do pics till 5 (guests can hang out at a bar at the hotel)-- the one ON the beach with the swings... and the the reception can go from 5-8 I guess. I just wanted a later reception. But I am not crazy about a break in between.

Kym let me know if you find some great sites, my colours are tourquise and coral/pink so pretty close. I tried getting linen from the resort and sorry to say girls they are very blah, I get that coral is a bit of a an odd colour but pink, they should be able to do pink

rdsj, in order to get all the pictures in, our ceremony in November starts at 2 pm, ends at 2:30, we will have coktail hour until 4 pm. In the meantime 2:30 till 3ish we will take group pictures then 3 to 4:30ish just the two of us. Reception will be set up by 5, food served at 5:45. I think most people enjoy just being able to hang out back in the room or sit by the pool with a drink. just my two cents.

In terms of sunset November 19th has a sunset time of 5 though, so mid October you will have an extra 1.5 hours of sun with a sunset time of 6:20ish, that is why we are starting so much earlier too - just in case

I am soooo pissed right now. Basically they can care less! I am going home tonight and looking through the paperwork to see if it says it on our confirmations. How can they just get rid of a promotion? That is totally FALSE ADVERTISING!!! I understand that their promotions change, however, we should be grandfathered in!!

 

 

That pisses me off too THey know that we can not do anything about it. We already have our weddings booked and guest coming. They should at least give us some kind of incentive's but they did not offer anything. I am really getting kind of upset with the resort. This is not the first thing that they have done that I find is false advertising. I guess they do not realize or care that we can switch to any other dreams resort if we want after we put a deposit down on our wedding.

 

It seems that the customer service at the resort is not the best when it comes to trying to make their guest feel that they are important. I thought that is what dreams is all about. I have guest that are going to be very dis pointed about this. They are already upset that they are having to spend so much to stay at the resort. There is no way they are going to pay a additional price to go play golf knowing that it was included when they booked their trip.

 

I am going to pm you my email and if my agent gets any different answers I will let you know./

My ceremony is at 4:00 on November 15th.. I'm a little worried about the sunset since I think it's around 5. But I just figured I would have pictures taken beforehand possibly? I'm not sure!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
