So now I don't know what to do between the service and dinner.
I don't know if this will be helpful or not. I got married Oct 20, 2011 at 1 pm. Originally we were set for November 17th, but had a lot of difficulty with people booking. We knew we were going to be a very small group - we're a lot older and it was the second time around for both of us - but too many people bailed at the last minute. In the end we decided we would go ahead and we went just the 2 of us in October instead and had a great time. When it was going to be a group in November, we had an early ceremony time too so we asked about having some hors d'oeuvres put together up at the Terrace Bar so that everyone could go from the ceremony site to a shady spot, sit and have a drink and something light to eat while we were off having pics done. It isn't that far from the gazebo for people to get to, it's in the shade and would allow people to relax before the dinner. It would be easy to kill a couple of hours and the prices are really quite inexpensive for the hors d'oeuvres.
I don't stop by here much anymore since we've now been married almost a year and a half, but I check in every once in a while and thought I would pass on the suggestion. I had so many good ideas from this site, and then when our entire wedding fell apart and we had to put it all back together, this site kept me sane! lol Good luck to everyone and I'll say the same thing I said in my review. RELAX! In Jamaica, it's no problem mon and the coordinators really do know what they're doing. Your wedding day will be perfect! I am a true testament to that after everything we went through and still had a beautiful, wonderful day. I got really sick 5 months ago and had major surgery and was told that if I had gotten to the hospital just a couple of days later than I did, I wouldn't be here to tell about it. My husband spent hours and hours sitting beside me in the hospital for 23 days so believe it or not, we're actually thinking about renewing our vows on a beach somewhere, maybe next year. I still have more surgery to get through so we'll wait to see how all of that goes to make sure we really have something to be thankful for before we make a final decision.
