Thanks, I am still going through all of my pics...there are so many! I am loving it
My pleasure to help, ask any questions you need....I will outline my day...it was perfect and stress free.
I started my hair at 11:30 with my mom (my mom got her make up done as well)....we were done by 12:50 and back at our room by 1:00. Keep in mind that i have A LOT of hair LOL so depending on your hairstyle and how much hair you have you might not need as much time.
I got my make up done back at our room while the girls got dressed and did their hair. My photog was along for the ride for my hair and while i was getting my make up done....he left for a little while to go get pics of the guys getting ready. It probably took half hour to 40 minutes to get my make up done so it was 1:45ish by the time we were finished make up
We ordered room service for a light lunch.
Had my make up slightly touched up after eating so i recommend doing your eating first LOL
At 2:45 photog came back and videographer came. So I started to gather my jewelry and garter and everything i needed. While i started to gather stuff my photog and videographer were taking pics of the details like flowers and dress and such in the background. They needed half hour to set up, take the detail pics of this stuff.
I started to get my dress on at 3:15 and we were out the door at 3:50 for our 4:00 ceremony (my dress requires a lot of work to get on so i reserved half hour for this).
I was a few minutes late (6 to be precise LOL) if you are in the reserve at PPC you need 5 to 10 minutes to get to the beach ceremony site since they are on opposite sides of the resort.
Our ceremony ended at 4:40(ish) and we ended the ceremony with a shell ceremony where everyone threw a seashell in the ocean to cast a wish for us so it was a perfect opportunity to take the group pics (the resort handed out champagne) we took all of our group pics and pics with who we wanted and then the bridal party came with us to take our pics while our friends and fam enjoyed the cocktail hour. Time flew by and before i knew it, it was 6:45 and time to go to our 7:00 reception. Depending on you (we wanted a lot of pics) you need at least an hour for pictures with your wedding party and on your own. you need half hour for your group photos. You have a smaller group so maybe shave 10 minutes off of each of those.
The cocktail hour was from 5 to 6 (but the resort already had it all set up right after the ceremony) and then everyone could go freshen up before the reception
The sun was going away by 5:30-5:45 and was completely gone by 6:00ish
If you want daylight, the sooner the better so if you could set up for 4:00, i think that would be ideal. if thats the case you will want to move your hair appointment up a bit so you dont have to rush anything....more so in case there are any unforseen delays
hope that helps!
