I'm a little concerned that with the time being pushed back, the entire wedding will be done with by 8:30 (1/2 hour for cocktail and reception lasting 3 hours). How did your time line work out??
Also, was your dance floor the one that the resort provides? It looks a little small, how did you guys feel about it?
Honestly the timing ended up perfectly. The ceremony actually started a little late. We took pictures and then the guests began the cocktail hour - probably around 4:30-45. I ended up having the cocktail reception at the beach at the same location as the reception. I just thought it would be an easier transition and maybe a way to extend the reception. That was perfect. I'm pretty sure we didn't start dinner until around 6:00 or 6:15. Our reception was over at 10. They extended it a bit because we pleaded with the dj and the Royal staff. The timing was perfect and I was actually ready for the reception to be over. The dance floor looked small at the beginning, but really it was perfect. It always felt like there were tons of people on the dance floor and I didn't notice it one bit. That was just one area I didn't want to spurge on... so, I didn't and it ended up great!
