Hey girls! Thanks for the link to the pics, Erin.....absolutely beautiful!

 

I'm getting married at Jade on November 4, 2011.....50 booked just off our save the dates! GULP! :) We're getting married at the Pergola at 4pm, then having our cocktail reception (2 hours) at the Blue Beach Bar. Dinner after that....I'm not planning a formal reception w/ DJ, etc. I thought we would just all hit the dance club after dinner. We're not interested in doing the first dance, dollar dance, etc., like at traditional receptions, and were hoping for to transition our dinner to the club for dancing/drinks. Does this sound like a reasonable timeline for those that have been married there? Also, one bride told me the dance club isn't open every night.....does anyone know for sure? I'd hate to count on us going there to party if it's closed. Any insight on timeline, etc. would be helpful.

 

I had a phone conversation w/ Ana last week and it helped so much....communicating by email wasn't working for us. I'm bringing my own photographer and minister and by email she wasn't budging at all on me trading that for other services. Per our phone conversation, she's allowing us to trade it for any live music, more flowers or a DJ. We may go w/ the Caribbean trio for our cocktail reception.

 

Happy Planning!

I need help with my timeline of events. I'm getting married on June 21st. Sunset is suppose to be at 7:30ish.

 

What time shoud I start the ceremony? I was thinking 6:30, but my FI thinks that's to late. I'm worried if we start any sooner it's going to be HOT and the sun will be to bright for his eyes.

I was there for 11 nights and the dance club was open every night, so i think you'll be fine.  And yes i think thats a reasonable timeline...it sounds fun

It depends on how long your ceremony will be, but I'd probably start around 6 instead of 6:30.  We started mine at 5:15 and i thought it was the perfect timing, but yours is on the longest day of the year.

Erin-

thanks for sharing pics! It looks like you guys had a blast!

 

Couple questions: how many guests did you have? what buffet did you choose? Any feedback on the food? Did you have the DJ MC the wedding?

We had 56 guests, we chose the IGUANAS buffet (delicious!), and yes we had the DJ MC the wedding.  He was great!

That's exciting! We'll stay through the following Thursday, so I'm sure we'll run into each other. We should definitely compare notes...and colors....maybe we can share some decorations! :)

We used DJ Doremixx. A week or 2 before we went down, we exchanged a few emails with our schedule of reception, our play list, and our do not play list.  They have a standard form they use. Then we scheduled a meeting for wednesday...two days before our wedding.  We were actually high maintenance with our music because my husband wanted very specific songs.  And for the father daughter dance, my dad and i started out with a slow song and then went into a fast funny song.  They created it right there for me in the meeting on the computer.  They did the first song, then did a cool record scratching sound, and went into our fast song.  They were absolutely incredible.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
