Day of Schedule-Cabo-Dreams

Recommended Posts

Hi girls,

 

20 days and counting and want to firm up my schedule for the day of so that nothing runs late. I'd like to get your opinion if I am over or under estimating the timing!

 

10:00-Brunch and coffee for hangover, potential bloody to calm nerves.

11:00-Chill by the pool for one hour

12:30 Go shower

1:00 Get Hair and nails done

3:00: Do make up

3:45 put on Dress and have one glass of champagne-nerves again

4:30-Guests arrive, grab a water or cocktail from the bar and be seated at Gazebo

5:00-Here comes the bride

5:30 (at the latest)- Ceremony done, mariachi band plays, more cocktails served and canapes passed. (we go take photos)

6:30-Head to dinner area by Oceania Pool

6:45-Everyone is seated and they begin serving while best man gives speech. (What do you think of this part? Is this the best time?)

8:00-First dance, followed by Daughter Daughter and then dance party USA or Mexico

10:30-They try to shut the music off and I bribe Mariana to go a wee bit longer.

10:45+-Drinks at bar in hotel and people head into town for more dancing.

 

What do you honestly think? Am I leaving anything out?

 

Cheers,

 

Lee

Looks good! I would add in the cutting of the cake and the tossing of the bouquet if you are planning on doing those activities. It's good to be able to write those in so you don't have to think about them on the day of and the coordinator can tell you when it's time.

 

Andrea - that's one hell of a sig pic! wink.gif

Yes must do the cake cutting. I'm skipping the bouqet. I'm over 30 and so are all my friends and I won't put them through that. I'm giving it to a good single friend for good luck.

 

I arrive actually a week before since we are coming from London I figure let's make a week of it! Where are you staying Andrea?

I would say if you want a group picture, schedule that in immediately following the ceremony. That way you won't forget

We did our best man & maid of honor speeches at the same time (very beginning of dinner). It worked out perfectly!

Are you taking any pictures before-hand with a photographer? I would build that in to your schedule so your parents or friends know when to be ready and where to meet (your room usually). Also, if the boys are taking pictures, you probably want to include that too, so that they are ready on time.

You are going to have so much fun! Congrats!!

We did this and I think if we hadn't done it right after the ceremony it wouldn't have been possible.

If you're doing any "getting ready" pics I would build that into the schedule as well so the photographer knows where he/she needs to be when.

We had our toasts done at the end of dinner but before dancing started. It worked out well because everyone was seated. If you're having a buffet rather than a plated (we had a buffet) then I recommend doing the speeches at the end of dinner rather than the beginning when everyone is standing up and getting food. If you're doing a plated meal just keep in mind that if you do it at the beginning there will be servers walking in and out with food.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
