What *TIME* to have ceremony??

Recommended Posts

Ladies, I need your insight...

 

The Guest Services Manager at the Royal Decameron wants to know when I want to have the ceremony. I don't want FI to see me before the wedding so we're not having it at sunset now. I imagine dinner would be afterwards, but I'm not sure how it works. FMIL started me with some questions but I wanted to check with people "in the know" wink.gif

 

Here's what I have so far. What do you brides & brides-to-be think? Is there anything else I should ask? (we're not ready to discuss the menus yet).

  1. What time does it get dark in January in PV?
  2. How does it work for dinner? (i.e. do we eat in the dark)
  3. Do you set it up with lanterns?
  4. What time is dinner?

Thank you in advance!!! grouphug.gif

I say choose whatever time of day you want your ceremony first and then book everything else. You will have time options for dinner, etc......and i'd hope they have lanterns, lights, candles for ambience during a dinner after sunset.

 

Our ceremony is at 2pm because we got the last time left that day. If I had the option, I would have chose around 4pm because it isn't as hot at that time. Our dinner will be at 6pm.

Good luck!

This is the page we use when we figure sunset times in Puerto Vallarta .... generally speaking, for best pictures, you want about 30-40 minutes before the actual sunset :).

Hey...your wedding is about a week before mine! We're staying at the Decameron too!!!

 

We're getting married a few blocks down at a restaurant called Karen's Place and she told us that 6:00pm was the best time to have a ceremony, especially for pictures, so that's when we're having ours. Plus there may be a few less randoms on the beach wink.gif

 

She's providing the lights for us and I would assume the hotel would be able to accomodate this as well. The reception will likely be in a separate area.

 

We are having dinner at 7:30pm. However we are serving appetizers right after the ceremony and while we take our pictures.

 

Hope this helps!

Whoops...I see you don't want a sunset ceremony from your post. In that case are you thinking a ceremony in the afternoon?

 

I see you were just looking for question help,

 

Are you using a resort photographer? You should find out what their contract entails.

 

i.e. How many hours are they booked for?

 

So you can get ceremony pics and your sunset shots as well.

I'm leaning towards a ceremony in the afternoon. I don't want FI to see me before the ceremony so we're doing pictures afterwards. Paulina Ulloa is doing our photographs. We're using her for up to 6 hours.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
