1 p.m. Ceremony at Dreams Cancun?

Recommended Posts

Sabrina & Scott

Dreams Cancun, February 16th, 2008


We're planning a 1 p.m. ceremony and are looking for suggestions on how to handle the reception. Claudia, the coordinator at Dreams has suggested a brunch-style reception, immediately following the ceremony. Has anyone experienced that? Is this something guests enjoy? We expect between 30 and 50 to attend.

you will probably need at least 1 hour to have group pictures + bride and groom pictures. The rest of your guest should have something to drink and eat while you do that otherwise they will be hungry !


Why not have your wedding at 12:00? Then you can all have lunch between 1 and 1:30... But if you are eating outside, you will be very hot under the sun !

I would think guest would have an early lunch before the wedding & hors doeuvres after. What time does lunch start at the hotel? If it isn't early (11-11:30), maybe that wouldn't work. I am hypoglycemic so I'm fanatical about eatting on time. But I guess if a guest feels the same way, they could always decide to have an early lunch on their own or have a snack. It's a tricky time, but you can probably figure out something.


Oh, & I suggest pictures right after the wedding so you don't have to keep your hair & makeup perfect that long. But I guess you could always eat right after, touch up & then take pictures. I always feel like the photography time imediately afterwards makes a lull for guests. But, I know that's what I'll want to do because I wont be relaxed until the pictures are done.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
