How insane would we be to do our wedding in late August? The thing is that we aren't ready any time soon so we wanted to do fall. July-August is supposed to be extremely hot and Sept-Oct is more of the hurricane time and November/December is too hectic for us. Out of July-October, what are your suggestions? Trying to lock down a date! Any thoughts on this is greatly appreciated.

Any help would be much appreciated :)

Hey KK, 

 

I too was struggling so hard to find the exact colour I wanted - originally I wanted a light lilac/lavender BUT all the designers colours were way too grey undertoned or too bright purple - soooooo I had a bit of freakout and may just order a dark plum/purple instead - I'm hoping it won't look too weird being in a tropical setting - any ideas or helpful hints!!!

 

I went with the Aqua Package so we could have a plated dinner, but am keeping the Chill Out Chic decor because I wanted the orchids as part of the colour scheme! UGH I'm so frustrated with everything! Not to mention I sent a photo of a very simple centrepiece (a few hydrangea blooms and an orchid stem or 2) and I was quoted $500 a table!!! That is a bit extreme so now I'm trying to do my own centrepieces and bring them with me!!!

 

Hahaha sorry for the little vent session - but try not to stress too much about the colour - my fiance keeps telling me not to stress the little things we can't control - but I know that it's hard and frustrating when you can't find exactly what you're looking for!

I would definitely avoid October.  I have been to Playa in July and in end of November.  In July it was hot--mid to high 80s and even into the lower 90s. In November it was beautiful--high 70s to low 80s, but rained 4 of the 8 days.  When I was trying to pick a date, I avoided that time because I thought it would stink to ask people to spend the money to come down only to have it rain on their vacation, not to mention on your wedding!  I would go July before end of August because I would avoid approaching the rainy season at all costs!  But you should definitely go with your gut! :)

Thank you, Rola! My bridal shop where I got my dress actually already has the spring colors in as of mid January, and I think Watters has my color, so I am good to go!

We're just doing sparklers (for pics) and maybe just heading to the bars on resort.

Ok ladies I need your suggestions! I need your help it's giving me anxiety.

For those brides who are doing their ceremony on the Gabi bridge, once you guys kiss and walk back down the aisle...where do you go?
Will you stick around to take pics?

Is there a non-awkward way to exit the ceremony?
In a typical wedding, after bride/groom exit the "church" or ceremony site, the guests throw rice or do some "send off" right? But...you're a bridge, where do we go from there?

I feel like there's no smooth transition.

Do we stop at the end of the bridge near the Gabi Club? What do we do?
HELP!!
