Morning OR Sunset Wedding????

Recommended Posts

In my situation, I don't think so because it is really one of maybe 2 things that I have formally planned. And because my wedding is on a Sunday, most people are staying 5 or 6 days as oppossed to only the weekend. Plus, most of my family is used to getting up that early for church and since my wedding is somewhat of a religious ceremony (to some people) they see it as an hounor to be up and about in one of the most beautiful of God's creation to share in one of the happiest times of my life. Lastly, it eliminates them having to calm me down from a whole day of being a bridezilla. For most people the 12 hours prior to thier wedding is full of stress but for me it will be full of sleep (for the most part anyway) so it's kind of a sure fire way to eliminate the jitters and anxiety. Because you can best believe that whatever is not done by Saturday night when I go to sleep, just won't get done. And that takes a great responsibility off my shoulders (and that of my guest and wedding partry who have to help me get ready or deal with a perfectionsit bride). It's kind of my fool-proof way of making sure no body is fighting or stressed out in the hours leading up to the wedding. Which means everybody will be fully rested, having had something to eat, and not think about anything but enjoying our nuptials as the waves crash against the shore in the background. Aaawwwwww, I can't wait!!

Wasn't sure if yu were asking me or the person who started this post but........


As far as hair and make-up, I'm not sure I understand the question....What about it? It will be done that morning and then I can just freshened it up that evening.


As far as what we are doing in between, Directly following our 10AM ceremony, we are having a mimosa reception by the pool. After mimosa's everyone will split until 7. Then we will meet for dinner and I'll have on a much more informal wedding dress and we'll do all the traditional stuff there. When I was planning a traditional ceremony at first, I had in mind to have a ceremony dress and a reception dress anyway so it doesn't change my plans much.

We are thinking of doing the ceremony about 2 hours before sunset hoping that it will give us enough time to do bright sun pictures (although it's not going to be as bright as in the morning) and sunset pictures. We were also thinking of doing pics before the ceremony, since we are planning to get married legally in US before leaving for our Mexico wedding, but I'm still debating on that since I still want to have a "grand entrance" and surprise my fiance.

    • 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?
