I don't think that the number of people matters so much as if you want any truly "private" time... If you don't mind having a semi-private gathering with some other guests around you, then just pick whatever bar you want, and go for it.

We had our dinner the night before the wedding and then went to the Martini Bar, so we could watch the Eagles game. On the wedding day, we had the ceremony and abotu an hour later did our reception at Tucanes. In between that, we took some pictures and went to the martini bar with just our bridal party.

Most of our guests went back to their rooms or the beach bar for a drink before the reception started up!
We do want to also do something private afterwards with our guest. Did you only do cocktails & desert after ceremony? We were thinking maybe doing mexican party after ceremony. What are your thoughts on that. Then night before do one of the rest. for free wedding package. May go with Fuentes, that seems to be more recommended. Now at the private party they are only semi private since they are at a bar? Which is fine with us too. I thought we could do music from Ipod and atleast do our first dance & the cake cutting there. Were you happy with Tucanes?

Also, make a cover for the cd that includes the number of the song and when it should be played (ie- pre-ceremony music while guests are seated, bridesmaids, brides processionals, document signing music, recessional, etc.)
I had found a cd that is all piano music, love songs. I was almost thinking of just playing it through the entire ceremony as background music. Do you think that would work or be too loud? If we decide to do music just during certain times through the ceremony does the wc do all that? What is your recommendation?

We did all of our ceremony music on one playlist for the iPod.

We made another playlist for the reception and figured out the timing for our dances, toasts, rounds of tequilla, etc... Then, we let the music dictate when it was time to do things...

Hope that makes sense. For example, we knew that when "Pour Some Sugar on Me" came on, it was time to cut the cake and start desserts... We only needed someone to pause the iPod on occassions and our "DJ" friend was great and would talk a bit between songs or introduce people, etc... You could totally do without that but for us, it was like having a real DJ for free!!!
I will probably do seperate playlist too. Its just trying to correlate it all together. As I mentioned thought I would just do the piano music for ceremony. Alot of great songs. Maybe I could correlate that with the ceremony. Or do you think it could play as background since there is no singing in it at all?

If you want to see our spreadsheet listing songs, timing, etc... just PM me and I can send it to you. Like I said, we put a ton of time into the music, but it was worth it...

We got to our reception by 6:30 and time really did fly! Before we knew it, we were taking the party to the swing bar at 10:15!!!
If you don't mind I would love to see your spreadsheet for song listings too. I'm sure it took you alot of time & that I'm running out of. It would be of great help & give me some ideas.

We played music before the ceremony, for processionals, during the signing of the documents (used a long song for this one) and the recessional. The music was pretty loud so I think playing it the whole time would be distracting and might make it really hard for your guests to hear. Plus, if you are getting married on the beach, you want to hear the sound of the ocean! :)

Hey Bre-how long was the signing of the documents? I didn't think about playing a song for that, but it does make sense- could you post a picture of your programs for ceremony?-- trying to get a feel for the ceremony outline...

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
