You are amazing, Dina. We only have 3 guests coming. :/ I too feel like there's so much I have no idea what I want and how I want it. Thank you so much...I am not stressed at all any more because you and other brides have all said everything gets taken care of. I'm putting jn my trust to them thank you again
It's ok to not know everything. It will all get finalized when you are there and meet with the WC, absolutely no worries at all. Your day will be wonderful, regardless!
Please feel free to ask any questions though!
Hi all! Less than 6 weeks for me now! So curious if anyone knows the layout for the symbolic ceremony? Trying order my wedding programs and I just realized I have NO idea how it's supposed to be layed out and therefore I can't get them ordered until then! Any info I would appreciate, thank you!!!
What do you mean by the layout? I would love to help...We also had a symbolic ceremony. We changed our ceremony time from 3 to 3:30 on the advice of Ramon (due to sunset times in November).
My bridesmaids walked down the aisle first, followed by me with my parents. The minister that performed the ceremony approached my husband right before the ceremony and asked if we wanted a religious or spiritual/love type script. He spoke a lot about love and relationships, it was really beautiful. We wrote our own vows and he incorporated the time for us to say them into the ceremony perfectly. The ceremony took maybe 20-30 minutes in total from the time the guests took their seats.
After the ceremony my husband and I walked back up the aisle followed by our wedding party and then our guests. Champagne was immediately served to all guests. A few minutes later the resort photographer had the entire wedding group go to the beach for photos. This took a very short time, maybe 10-15 minutes. The guests then had cocktail hour while we finished photos. When photos were finished my husband and I joined the cocktail hour also.
I found that the timeline was fairly flexible when we met with Ramon... he gave us some great advice on how things should flow. I didn't do programs with only 17 guests... I felt it was too much work and I also didn't know the timelines of how things would run. I don't think they were missed though, everything was very relaxed and no one required much direction.
I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any further questions...
