For reception, I only had one entree for everyone ( The salmon). I think they maybe able to offer 2 entrees but you have to let Jessica know who is eating what and seat chart 1 month in advance.
On the other hand, I let my guests to pick from 2 entrees for my welcome dinner at Agave.
Then I picked 3 different appetizers and ask them to serve in 2 sets ( we sat a long table) so everyone could try everything.
Agave even made a menu for me at welcome dinner! that was very sweet of them.
oh and I made my own menu at reception though. Overall, I think one entree at reception was acutally better for me since there are so many other things to worry about!
Hope this helps!
@JenniferH114, the guitar sounds nice! We are having a saxaphonist for the cermony. I think the live music will be a nice touch.
@upstatekj, Our ceremony starts 5:30 and everything will wrap up around 11:00. We hired photographer Sascha Gluck for the whole time. I didn't schedule my hair/make up yet, I plan on doing that soon.
@JessT, congrats on your wedding!!! I'm sure it was beautiful! I had one question or maybe someone else may know. For the reception dinner, do guests get to pick from two entrees or do you have to pick one for everybody??
My wedding was at 5:00 PM at the Pier. I started my day with a nice breakfast, went to swim a little and took shower then went to spa for hair and makeup at 12:00 PM. Elias was my hair stylist and he did a great job! It was scheduled for 1 hour and half but he finished it in 1 hour.
Then my photographer ( Naal Photographer) showed up early too ! you can certainly make a schedule and send it to your photographer to see what's their opinion since everyone's schedule is different.
They usually leave after you guys cut the cake though.
what is everyone's wedding day timing look like? how much time for hair/makup? and when do you have the photographer showing up/leaving?
i think we'll go ahead with juan navarro but wondering how many hours i think i'll him him for. def want getting ready photos, ceremony, and some at the reception, but not sure we need him for the whole reception. so many others will be taking pictures throughout the night.
thanks again so all of you ladies who provide info - this is such a helpful forum!
Depend on your wedding package, Jessica would send you menu options ( IE. gold / silver menu 1 and 2)
You CAN mix and match from menu 1 and menu 2. And if you are gold, you can pick from silver menu at no extra charge.
@JenniferH114 I was thinking the same thing about hopefully picking/mixing entrees. Some people don't eat seafood so I'd rather have a seafood and a chicken or steak option.
So jealous you are going in Nov, have a blast! We met Gloria when we went and she was very helpful! Your wedding is a little after ours so we'll probably miss you. We are heading home May 8th.
