How long is your Reception?

Recommended Posts

Our reception would be between 5:30 to 9:30 (we added an extra hour to our boat cruise). After that we are planning on coming back to the resort and party at the club (that opens at 11 i believe).

We got married at the Paradisus Punta Cana.....We got married at 530 p.m. (took MAYBE 30 minutes), had a cocktail 1/2 hourish. Had supper at 730-1030....the reception time does not start untill your supper starts (supper was served basically right at 730 too, no messin around!) and really we said 1030 but we danced untill atleast 11 and then went to the disco which is AWESOME! Altho we did not stay long our friends had a blast...that disco was pumpin almost every night!!

Wow, see I wanted a later ceremony, but the WC said the latest she would suggest was 4:00 because the sun then goes behind the trees and it affects the lighting for the photographer. Did you have any problems with that?

Hi,

 

I am concerned about the reception being too short as well not to mention the possibilities of rain since my wedding is on 6/5/10 at PPC. I will be having weather permitting a beach ceremony at 6pm since the sunset in June is around 7:15. Then I will have 1 hr cocktail hour and my reception will follow at the Romantico. I plan on dinner and dancing as well. I figure if its too short we will just move party to the disco.

Hey! Come July the sun will be setting earlier then it did in June, however the sun did not set untill around 730 for our wedding June 9. We did pictures right up untill 730 and our photographer had no issues. They are proffessionals and know how to work with the lighting...also I wanted sunset pictures but unfortunately the sun sets behind some mountains in Punta Cana at that time of year and there are no sunsets sad.gif Oh well!

This is what it looked like the day we got married...some blue sky, some clouds, but it was perfect!
