4mins is plenty of time.  My song was probably 3:30 but definetly didn't need all of it.  I was walking so fast anyways so It probably only took 1-2 mins.  My mom actually told me to slow down haha!

    Quick question about footwear for men.

    We have advised our group that long pants are required for a la carte and the reception, and we have heard men are also not permitted to wear sandals in the a la carte restaurants?

    Did you find that to be true, or were the men able to get away with long pants and sandals?

    Just curious!

      Men are allowed sandals with their long pants!

        The walk down the aisle looks long but its not really, i had a song about 4min and it was plenty of time!

         

        Also, we brought a photographer and as long as they were a paying guest (which she was), there was no extra charge!

         

        And i WOULD NOT recommend paying extra for the open bar service. They absolutely don't care if you bring in your own bottles and we later found out that our guests were ordering liquor drinks from the waiters and they made them no problem, no charge!

          The walk only took me about a minute.  I walked a little fast but it's not like I was running lol!  I'd say even if you walked slower (which I don't think most brides do since we're anxious to get up there) then a minute and a half would be about right.

            Yes, men are allowed to wear sandals.  My hubby and his groomsmen all had sandals on and there was no problem.  We actually ate at all of the a la carte restaurants while there and we would see men wearing knee length shorts and sandals without issue.  The only a la carte that does firmly adhere to the long pants rule was Don Pablo's...but even then men were allowed to wear jeans.

            we were told for wedding dinner for wedding party sandals are ok in the a la cartes, but otherwise proper shoes and attire are requested. having said that we did see people improperly dressed and nothing was said to them. we saw jeans, shorts and sandals and I was tempted to ask why some people were told the rules and others weren't but we let it go.

            We went to all the a la cartes and the men wore sandals for all of them and there was never a problem.  They also wore shorts at all of them except for Don Pablo.  They were turned away at that restraunt to put pants on, but sandals were okay.  They were allowed to wear jeans as well.
