ROR - Newbie trying to plan private reception May 2012

Recommended Posts

I am also scheduled for a 5pm ceremony in late June and want to have the Private beach dinner/reception. Is the beach recption area near the gazebo? If so, I am hoping that since we are the last ceremony of the day that the reception will be set up and my guests can go there after rum punch while we take a few pics. I'm also hoping that the photographer will get all of the wedding party pics before the ceremony so that all we have to do is the bride/groom and group/family photos after. I looked up sunset time for around my day and it is 6:40ish I believe, so I am hoping that it will be perfect for pics.


My only concern is that I've read that the resort beach party is on saturdays now and that you can not do a beach reception. If that is true, then I need to change my day STAT! But, no one has said anything to me about not being able to have the beach dinner. I hope I am not disappointed.

Hey Ladies,


We are putting together our webinar schedule for BDW.  These webinars are great because not only can you get YOUR questions answered but also hear answers to questions from other brides that you may not have even though of :)


Webinars are a great way to not only hear directly from the wedding department but see the wedding packages that they offer, ceremony/reception pics, etc.


I try to only limit the webinars to once every 2 weeks so we of course can not do all resorts.


Please vote on which resorts you would like to have webinars on...you can choose more than 1.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
