    I agree with your FI. We had no clue what we were doing every day at 5pm when we went for our wedding. Who cares? Be flexible, its your vacation too. Do what you wish and if guests want to hang out with each other they'll find each other. Our guests knew basically where we were at the resort if they needed to find us or wanted to hang out. We did a couple of excursions together, but we didn't decide on them until we got down there. Planning every minute of a vacation is no fun for people, including yourself!

        i tend to agree with your guy on this one; just let everyone do their own thing you will probably end up doing quite a few things together without any forward planning. Although the wedding is our most important day we have to remember a lot of guests will have saved hard to be at the wedding so are also treating it as their holiday; not just a wedding.

          Hello! I'm doing something similar - I copied a "Good Morning Newsletter" from Martha Stewart - and we're going to have the hotel put them under our guests doors in the mornings - I'll attach it for you. But essentially it's got a space for "suggested activity" and then "Today's big deal" - which would be where you'd remind guests about the welcome party or any other group activity you may have had planned. I've attached it for you - it's a powerpoint so you can easily customize it for yourselves.

            How many people are coming to your wedding and how big is your resort? I would maybe create a "home base" place where people can meet up if they want to hang out during the day - like near the pool with the pool bar - and somewhere at night - like the tequila lounge!

            My hotel is SMALL (98 rooms) so i assume we'll all find eachother very easily!

              Is your hotel charging you for them putting the newsletters under the door? I've heard that sometimes they won't do these types of things if it's a big resort...

                I'm just giving my guests a timeline with the rehersal/welcome cocktails and dinner times and the breakdown of times for the day of the wedding.

                  DRC will do it - but they charge. I might delegate the task to my dad since he wakes up at 5am anyway...hahaha.

                    That's a good idea! My dad will be up drinking coffee... I'll have him walk and drop :-)
