I think ours will be a weekday as well, but it'll be super low key b/c we want the wedding in DR to be the real deal.
I'm debating now between having a private reception or doing one at Jellyfish. It actually might be a bit cheaper and it seems like the decorations are better? I guess I will have to price everything out and see!
if you haven't already, check out the facebook group 'Majestic Colonial Brides!' ... PhotoPhil has a note on there about what happens if it rains (perfect timing to our discussion!) and you will probably find lots of info on the Jellyfish there.
our legal day will also be very lowkey as well. i don't want to exchange rings or say any vows if we don't have to (i think we may have to say something though). i would rather just sign the papers and be done with it, so it doesn't seem like a wedding.
i can hear my dad now, "You want all of these people to pay thousands of dollars to come to your wedding, and you are already married??!!"... that's why he doesn't get to know. LOL.
