We rented a sound system for the event, but not a DJ. I donâ€t want to get stuck with someone corny.


We might do a few dances to a few select songs but other than that the music will just be background music. We hired a 3 man trio. We are going to have a Private Dinner and Cocktail party on the beach/cove area with lots and lots of paper lanterns hanging from the gazebo and palm trees, tiki torches and decorative tables.

 

11:30 Makeup /Mani/Pedi at the Resort Spa
1:30 Hair at the Salon
4:00 Ceremony
4:30 Wine and toasting
5:00 Cocktail Party (Should we have our trio play here or have general music? Bride and Groom Photos)
6:00 Dinner/Speeches
6:45 General Trio (If have the music earlier, I will just have background music playing)
7:30 Cake/Mayan Coffee
8:00 General Music Playing/Dance of some sort/ Socializing. People can go their own way if they want.

Wedding style to help you achieve the look that you want.  Even if your gown is not made by popular designers, you will still have the elegant style on your wedding through their gown styles.  Small wedding planning is a great idea also.. Limited only for your love ones families and close friends..

We went to a DW in Jamaica last year. We weren't really "invited" by way of formal invitation. It was a girl from work (FI and I work together) who mentioned to FI that they were getting married in Jamaica if we fancied going. Don't think she thought we'd take her up on it, but we did!

 

Anyway, we weren't staying in their resort, so we just bought 2 day passes. When we got there, the groom's parents had turned up to surprise them. In their wedding package, they would have had a romantic dinner for two, but they swapped this to the next night and all 6 of us just went to one of the all-inclusive restaurants and had a meal. We then went to one of the bars and stayed there until late. It was so relaxed and we had so much fun. They woudl have done the same had we been there or not.

So happy to see this question asked! My mom actually posed this question to me last night and I didn't have an answer for her. I just forwarded her this thread so she can see what others have done.I guess my mom is assuming not many people will pay to come... Honestly since my wedding is next year 4/2011, I'm uncertain how many people will be there. I'm thinking 20 or less, so it's wonderful to here from other couples so that I don't have to think too much. Lots of great ideas and suggestions for me to steal, just in case...;-)

My future MIL (actually the entire family) is notorious for being up to an hour late for things... so I'm telling everyone it will start 1/2 hour earlier,, then if they are late,, too bad I'm not waiting.

3:00-4:30 Social Hour with Mariachis, we took pictures during this time
4:45-6:15 Food, toasts, thank yous and cake
6:30 or so - we watched the sunset from the room of the house
7:00 or so - we all hit the pool and hot tub

We kept it super simple... I was worried about having a father daughter dance, cake cutting, all the other traditional things people do, but we really only had a little push back from MIL when we didn't cut the cake in front of everyone. I think the key is to keep things flowing. People liked that it wasn't a traditional wedding.
