I was wondering if you ended up having the bonfire/beach party the night before your wedding? I've heard mixed things regarding the cost vs length of the bonfire and was wondering if you could give any input. Thanks

8:30am: Deep sea fishing for the guys - I worked with the head concierge and chartered a boat for about 8 of the guys to go out fishing.
7:30pm: cocktail party at Rendezvous - I deicded instead of paying for a cocktail party that we'll all just meet at one of the hotel bars instead. People can just get drinks from the bar. Is that cheesy? I'll probbaly start passing out the OOT bags then.
Thursday (You're wedding day!!!)
6:30pm: Rehershal dinner at World Cafe - Again, not paying for a private set up but they made reservations so our group will all be together
7:30pm: Beach party!!! - We're doing the bonfire set up and having a stereo system for music. I was going to do a bar set up but had to cut costs so people can just go to the nearby bar. It's not that far.
Friday (My wedding day!!!)
5:00pm: Beachside ceremony with Pastor Rick
5:30-6:30: Cocktail hour
6:30-9:30: Reception at poolside location with DJ Mannia
For OOT bags I got tote bags too and am making "Dominican Republic Survival Kits" with sunscreen, aloe vera, hand wipes, tylenol and pepto bismo. The totes will also have playing cards, sunglasses and squirt guns.
Where did you order your mugs from? I want to get some but everywhere I've seen has huge minimum orders and we don't need that many.
Are you getting super excited?!!!
