Tara, I'm pretty sure it's REALLY HOT in July, but you should be able to ask Janelle and she'll be able to help you with that information.  She lives there year round and know what HOT is :)

It is VERY hot. Unless you are inside and enclosed with a/c, it will be hot, but hopefully you will have the sea-breezes to keep you  somewhat cool. But like any tropical island...it will be HOT, but not that stifling, suffocating heat that you get on the mainland, tho'.

Agree with avclarke - I was there for a May 8th wedding 3 years ago and the bride and groom had planned for an outdoor reception...only to have to make a last minute decision (the night before the wedding) to move it inside to a nondescript ballroom because it was entirely too hot. 

 

The short ceremony was still held outside, but we were all pretty miserable.  The photos, however, are stunning!

Hello,

You ladies might have missed what I was asking haha...my ceremony is outside and the reception is at Havana Blue which is open aired...so we will be outside the whole time!! We wanted that so there's no changing this haha soooo I didn't know if there was any tips or you could calm my fears about it being too hot!! Any advice I'd appreciate people who have been there

Hi Tara,

 

We are also getting married next year (April) outside with a reception at Havana Blue!!! Have you decided what to do about accommodations for you and your guests?? 

 

In terms of being too hot...I've actually never been to STT, but some ideas I have for my beach ceremony are to have parasols available and little fans on everyone's seats that people can use. They have fans and parasols at orientaltrading.com, but I'm going to keep looking! We're also going to have water and lemonade available for our guests on a little table in the shade. Either way, your wedding will be gorgeous :)

Thanks Beth! I really appreciate it! We knew booking it July would be hot but I dont want it to be unbearable ya know? We chose July cause most people take vaca time off in the summer so we figured people would be more likely and able to come down! Where is your ceremony

? Ours is on the seacliff terrace on the Marriott property. I've been there and its absolutely gorgeousss and so is Havana Blue! I love love it! We are going to have our room block there so for people its all in one place which should be really nice! However I really want to have low room rates but so far hasn't exactly been going that way with the Marriott! We are still far out but I'm hoping to get the block squared away in the next few months.

 

I think we are going to do ceremony program fans :) I found some on etsy that are really cute. I do like the parasol idea though maybe to just have there if people want them? I'm nervous with the dancing at Havana Blue it will be soo hot but lets hope for an ocean breeze! :) We looked into geting those lil handheld fans too to maybe place at the tables or around the dance floor at the reception..might be kinda cool!

We're doing our ceremony at Lindquist Beach, but I think we might stay at the Marriott as well! I want to have some ideas of affordable options for our guests though...I know that all of our friends are not going to want to pay Marriott prices!!

 

Although our ceremony is in late April, it will still be outside in the sun, so I'm planning to have a few parasols available for guests during the ceremony as well. And bottled water! I saw pictures of another BDW bride who did her wedding at HB in July and she posted pics of the reception and I remember that it did get hot while they were dancing, but they still had a great time!! I think its all about what you make of it :)

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
