Not sure if she is on this site or what? but I dont know how to feel about it
I dont want to have our wedding rushed, b/c there is another wedding only an hour after ours... I was hoping to do cocktails outside of the chapel. Im assuming that wont be possible now, and our set up, probably going to get ripped down right after to set up for her day... I was really hoping to take a few pics in there before having everything come down...
I dont know?
How would you feel
also... I already contacted Sandra/ Landy about this, and said it wasnt a problem, they are more than one wedding co ordinator and can handle it...
BUT...we all knew this was a possibility when we signed up for a wedding at DT. I'm just hoping any other weddings on my day are earlier so I won't have to run into the other bride (s).
Sunbride is right. Ceremonies usually don't take but 20 minutes so I believe you will have plenty of time to do all the things you want to (except maybe the cocktail hour). AND THINK ABOUT THE POSITIVE THINGS.
By the time the "other" bride has her ceremony...it will have been a been there done that situation. Not to steal her thunder but you will have been the first, the one your guests/hotel guests see first and will be in awe. When people see the "other" bride it won't be as special because they would have already seen you!
Also, since she contacted you...maybe you guys can work together. Ask her to push back her ceremony by 30 minutes. It's a stretch, I know but who knows....maybe she is concerned about the time frame too and would agree to it. ALSO, you guys may want to go in on the ceremony decorations together so you could split the cost. Say...agree on using the same colors of flowers (maybe just all white) that once you use...you can leave behind for her ceremony. Her guests/ your guests won't know. And you can save $$$. Don't know if you've seen it but the chapel is beautiful. You don't need much to decorate it. I'm getting married there too.
And lastly, I know the WC won't rush your wedding. They wouldn't do it. They'd rather let the other ceremony start a little later than usual (sometimes that happens anyway, Mexico time remember?!) than to rush YOU.
Hope this helps. I know how you feel. I'm still waiting to hear if anyone else is getting married on my day too.
