How does this look for a tentative schedule?

Recommended Posts

We skipped the rehearsal dinner with our bridal party and just did the welcome dinner with everyone. I mean, we didn't actually get to practice the wedding, so it was kind of silly to have a dinner to practice :)

I was going to say the same thing. We decided to skip the rehersal dinner & had a welcome dinner for everyone.
Would you be willing to have 1 welcome dinner for everyone instead of a rehersal dinner for the bridal party?
Not that its a big deal but what will the rest of your guests be doing while you're having the rehersal dinner? Sometimes ppl see things such as "bridal party only" and feel excluded, probably more so when its a DW & everyone is there.

Ohhhh we are actually practicing the whole thing too on Sunday, so that is why the dinner is after. True, if there is no rehearsal, then why have a dinner? Makes sense Tlseege :)

i figure that they could have free time/time on their own while we are rehearsing and having dinner. I do not want to tie up ALL of their time. I want to allow plenty of time for beach bumming and enjoying what they want to do too!

 

I figure we have them all day with group stuff on Saturday, so Sunday give them a break the day before the big soiree and let them do their own thang!

Diva - you've thought of it all. Amazing!!!

 

We will have a Welcome Dinner for everyone without a separate Rehearsal dinner. We will just "rehearse" before going to the dinner to meet everyone. Or at least I hope we get to rehearse or at least run through who will be going where and when.

You have a lot of wonderful ideas! My advice is to keep it simple. Don't worry about having too many activities planned.a group activity can be something as easy as a "beach day" . I think one gathering or maybe two is more than enough.when I first started planning I also created a schedule but we decided to just have a welcome gathering at a lounge with drinks and lite good plus the wedding. Some guests will be leaving the day after the wedding so we won't do anything formal after the wedding day except maybe meeting up at the club or casino.

I replied with my blackberry... not an easy thing to do! Well what I was trying to say was one or two events per day should be enough. Your guests will be so excited to just be on vacation . I wanted a welcome dinner AND farewell brunch but then I looked at our budget( we're not at an all inclusive resort) and decided to just stick with a welcome reception at a lounge the night before the wedding. Guests can meet us AFTER they have dinner for drinks and I may give out small oot bags. No rehearsal dinner for us, we only have a BM and MOH.

I had a rehearsal dinner planned and then didn't get to rehearse because of my drama filled travel schedule. People really appreciated not having every minute planned for them. I say keep it simple, but fun. Your schedule looks good, but IMO it is really busy. Guests arriving, the brunch/ guys outing and then a group activity, then a welcome reception? Your guests are going to be worn out girlie! I agree with Sheree 1 or 2 activities a day will be more than enough.
