We are having our wedding at Cancun Real. We are purchasing the Classic Wedding package - sunset wedding ceremony on the beach(4pm), reception on one of the terraces at 6ish. We are not having a cocktail hour.

 

Our WC is encouraging us to have the champagne toast/cake immediately following the ceremony, before pictures.

 

This seems a little out of schedule. Anyone else doing this or are you waiting until the reception to do toasts and cut cake?

 

The only advantage to this that I find is that it will save us a little time in our 3 hour reception.

 

I really appreciate any feedback on this as we are really struggling with this!

We are doing a champagne toast right after the ceremony, then a cocktail hour while we take pictures, and then we are doing cake cutting right when we get to the reception. I think it sounds fine to do it right after the ceremony. Especially if you aren't doing a cocktail hour before dinner.

So, you think it would be ok to actually eat the cake during this time? Or, I was thinking maybe doing the toast & take pictures of the cake cutting then saving the cake for during the reception.

 

If you do the cake before all the pics, you can't do any of the messy cake eating traditions ...

I would just do the cake cutting and do a small bite for pics and stuff and then actually serve the cake at the reception. That makes more sense to me.

    • 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.
