I know with weddings I've been in locally I've always paid for my own but being destination wedding Im not sure what the etiquette is...Let me know your thoughts and what any of you plan on doing.

     

    Thanks!

     

     

    hmmmm, I  think that since you are paying for everything else, it wouldn't be a big deal to ask them to do that. I mean, that's alot of $$ you are spending on their dress, shoes, jewlery, etc.

        Wow really? My wedding coordinator is Evanglina and she told me no outside vendors allowed and when I probe her again she just ignores the question completely.

              I know I've seen it posted somewhere before, but does anyone know the size of the round and/or rectangular tables that they use on the pool decks? I just can't seem to find the information. Also have any of the past brides opted out of the cocktail hour and went to the bar in the beach between the ceremony and reception? Just wondering how it worked out if anyone has done it. We were considering cashing in our cocktail hour to put towards our dinner. I was hooping we could go to the beach bar after the ceremony & also get in some group photos before the dinner. We have around forty guests so we weren't sure how it would work. Other ideas I've seen mentioned were putting cocktail hour off for a half hour or so to do pictures. Has anyone done this? If we do cocktail hour we really just did not want to miss it & the mariachi band while doing pictures, and of course we were hoping ti save some money. Ourwedding is at 4 and we weren't planning on doing any pictures together before the ceremony. Thank you guys for your help!

                We are getting married in December so we haven't done this yet, but we plan on doing our "cocktail hour" at the beach bar. We are going to be having around 30-35 guests. We plan on having the mariachi band there on the beach for the guests and also us taking some pictures there with them so we can enjoy it a little bit before we take the rest of our pictures. Atleast that's how I have it pictured in my head. Of course it could change after we talk to Lorena once we get there.

                 

                When in December are you getting married? Something you might want to look at is the time it gets dark... We're getting married December 17th and Anel (the photographer) told me that 4pm was too late for the ceremony. She said there won't be any time for photos after the ceremony because it will be too dark.

                She sent me this website: http://www.timeandda...nomy.html?n=923

                She said to keep in mind the time listed there is when the last ray of sun is and on the beach it gets dark about 25 minutes before the time listed. So, we're looking at about a 4:45 complete darkness on Dec 17th!! We are starting our ceremony at 3:30 so hopefully we'll have a good 45 minutes of pictures before it gets dark. And I think we'll be taking them right at sunset.

                 

                Hope this helps! :)

                  Thank you!!! We are getting married dec14! So we will see you down there! I've sent emails to try & reserve Anel, but we haven't heard anything back. I'm glad you told me about the sunset issue! It sounds like we may have similar plans. I'm hoping the beach bar idea works! Thanks for your help!!!

                    Anel is usually really good about responding to emails. Are you emailing her directly or going through the coordinator??

                    We arrive on the 13th so we will definitely see you there!! How long are you staying? Is your wedding on the beach or at the gazebo? Ours is at the gazebo :)
