              Hi Ladies!

              I just got back from the Riviera Maya - we had issues with our resort's chapel opening. We went down and found two good ones while we were down there.
              Our save the dates were sent and we've been set with 11/13th this whole time...the problem is that the chapel we really fell in love with, Xcaret Assisi chapel, is booked and they don't have any time openings other than 10am....

              We have two options if we really love the church: Doing a ceremony at 10am or switching our date to 11/12th.

              What are your thoughts...? We are so confused!!
              So far the few people that have booked their travel are arriving on the 10th....

              If we change the date it's better for us to do it now than wait for more people to book.

              Wedding Date 11/12/2010- Riviera Maya - Hacienda Tres Rios

                I would think it would be easier to change the time rather than the date as you will be losing a full day rather than an hour. And if some of your guest arrive on the 11th they may not get much time to get settled before the big day the next day. Just my initial thoughts.

                  I agree. It would be easier to change the time instead of the date. You already sent out the std's and you dont want to confuse people or make things more challenging for your guests. Its already difficult to convince people to come to a DW, changing dates may make matters worse.

                    yeah, I say go for the earlier time rather than switching the date. It will be much easier and just as perfect!

                      Thanks for your help!

                      The only issue with changing the time is that it can only be changed to 10am. Our reception isn't until 6pm. I asked the wcoordinator if there was something they could do with timing but the bride getting married there that day is having hers at 5:30pm but her decorator will need 6 hours to prepare. Wish this was an easier one since we love the chapel so much.
