Not happy with our wedding time

Recommended Posts

So when we were booked at Beaches Negril we were scheduled for 4pm....but now that we've switched to Beaches T&C, the only time slot available for our day is 11am sad.gif That just seems like such an awkward time to me and while I'm not happy about it, I definitely don't want to switch my date, and I really don't feel like switching our resort, so I feel kind of stuck.

 

I would love to hear from brides who have had early ceremony times and how you handled scheduling, etc. I know I've read similar threads on this before but didn't find too much when I tried to search. Can someone please make me feel better about our ceremony time??

i know a friend of mine who had a wedding in the early afternoon. and she actually loved it! she did the ceremony, and had a reception after.( just as if you were to have one later in the day). but the best part was she said was she got to purchase an evening dress. after the reception and all that fun. everyone took a break from each other to nap, refresh ect, then they hit up the resort disco and had a great night. she said it was almost like 2 receptions. she really enjoyed it!!!!!! my cemermony is at 1pm, so not far from ur time. and althou it may seem shitty, just think you get the WHOLE day to party it up and celebrate!

hockeymom, we had our wedding at 11 a.m. in the Riviera Maya and it actually worked out well. I didn't have to avoid my future hubby all day (you know, the whole "can't see the bride before the wedding), I didn't have all day to get more and more nervous and stressed, and we had lots of time in good lighting to take pictures. We had our reception at 6:30, so our guests just spent the afternoon doing whatever they liked -- some napped, some went to the beach, some went into Playa del Carmen. The only minor drawback was having to get up pretty early to have my hair and makeup done.

I was at first disappointed about the early time, too, but everything turned out great.

Hi hockeymom97. Eleven AM is not so bad. Think of how much brighter the colors in your pictures will be. Try searching around in the wedding reviews section for 11 AM brides.

I think that 11 AM would be great! You could do a nice ceremony and then your guests could enjoy the rest of their afternoon and meet you for a fun reception later that day! Also, it would give you and your hubby time to soak it all in before your big reveal later that evening!

There was another bride who posted something similar. Her church was only available at 11am and the reception venue was only available frm 6pm. Personally I have been attending more and more weddings that are being held earlier. I think 11am is fine. Is your reception following right after or is it later in the evening. You get to have your wedding and then guests can enjoy the evening. You can all probably meet up and go off property later in the evening and party it up.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
