        I had my reception at the Poseidan.  I don't have a lot of pics back yet.  It was beautiful though!  Here's a couple - a pic of our sweetheart table and a pic of our first dance.  We brought the flowers down for the centerpieces.....

            Hey...

             

            Our wedding was at 2pm and reception at 6pm ... I was upset too because i thought i really wanted 4pm .. but dont worry 2pm is perfect!!!

            YES... its going to be possibly the hottest point of the day.. it was for our day!!!!! It was blistering hot .. thank goodness for that ocean breeze!!!

            However... i will say... i'm sooooooo glad we did it at 2pm. I was actually about an hour late for the ceremony.. hair/mkeup and everything took longer than expected.. oh well.. let them wait i say!!! it honestly was perfect.. we had soo much time in between to take pictures... and our guests were sooo happy that they hd time to go jump in the pool for a swim to cool off and the nget ready again for dinner. Looking back...i think we would have been sooo rushed for pictures and everything with a 4pm ceremony.

            I'm so happy with how timing worked out on our day. Hopefully that will make u feel a little better :)

            Once you get there... everything will work out!

              Does anyone have pictures of the Waves of Love package at the beach? The website pictures look awesome, but I want to see a real wedding picture at this location please.

               

              Also, I read somewhere that the Hors d'Oeuvres Reception at Your Ceremony Site was enough food to feed guests, even enough for leftovers. . . .I am thinking of having my whole reception at the beach. After our ceremony, have a signature cocktail for guests while we get a few formal pics taken, and then introduce us, speeches and a few dances while hors d'oeuvres are being served, and then have the  ZURIELEMAKA show?!?!?

               

              Hey Lindsay,

               

              No worries... I had the waves of love package... and it was absolutely beautiful!!! I know you probably wont believe this ... but its true... the pics on the website of the packages are exactly what they look like ... like.. exactly! I was expecting a lot less than what the pictures suggested lol ... but was very surprised with how beautiful the flowers were with the package.. like i said i paid $200 for fake ones and didnt even use them!!! The package is beautiful ... the bouquet for our head table was so huge.. i was expecting a dinky little wilted flower bouquet or something! I have more pics i've been meaning to add... no professional ones back yet so apologize for the quality.. but i have some of the cake and i think of our "sweetheart" head table.. avec gigantic flower bouquet.

               

              And yes.. i did walk down the aisle to the steel drum band!! They were AMAZING!!!!!!! My guests were soo impressed and it seriously made the wedding feel more real and authentic! I didnt give them a play list or anything.. this is what they do for a living.. they know what they're doing and what they can play ... lol ... my ONLY request was that they DONT play "here comes the bride" (my wedding coordinator radio'ed that over to them "do not play here comes the bride... ANYTHING but here comes the bride" nd then she laughed saying okay the whole entire resort heard that!)   ...they actually played Canon in D .. which was soooo perfect and beautiful on the steel drums ... waterworks all around!!!!!! except me I was WAY too excited :)

               

              Oh.. i actually JUST had someone post a good pic of the steel drum band on my facebook ... ill copy it and upload it here so you can see... totally worth it!!!

              Put it this way.. they charge $500 to rent an ipod dock... and I got a legit steel drum band. loved it!!!

                Thank you for that... I was so worried about what to do during that time, but I guess we will be taking pictures for an hour or two anyway... and it will give the guests a chance to freshen up.  I feel so much better:-)

                    Hi Alysia,

                     

                    I'm getting married at the Grand Palladium on Nov. 26. I really want to walk down the aisle to the steel drum band, but am thinking its expensive and I might get my money's worth during the reception. How many minutes did they actually play during the ceremony? Did you have them move to the reception afterwards?

                     

                    Thanks,

                     

                    Diana

                      Hey Diana,

                       

                      Yes it does seem expensive... I beleive the band has 5 members.. 4 on steel drums and 1 playing on actual drums in behind them...

                      i have pics to post of them actually.. ill try tomorrow.

                       

                      Consider this though... the resort charges $500 for an ipod dock for the ceremony only.... sooo when u put that into perspective.. for the SAME price.. u get a live authentic steel drum band.

                       

                      It honestly made our ceremony seem a loootttttt more authentic than other weddings who just used ipods.

                       

                      They played for an hour.. actually a little over an hour because I was an hour late myself... so they played the whole time from about 1:45 while guests were being seated until I came which was about 2:45...  and then when we had our bridal party entrance..  and then my entrance.. and then during our signing...  note: we didnt do ANYTHING extra to prolong the ceremony.. spent so much time planning everything else we never wrote our own vows or something to say to each other or do the sand ceremony... so then they played again after our kiss and then during the champagne toast.

                      They wrapped it up rather quickly because i was an hour late... we went over our location time.. which is an hour.. so they let us do the champagne toast and mingle for about 20/30 mins then starting packing up and taking everything down. So they played from about 1:45 until sometime between  3 and 3:30.

                       

                      it was definitely definitely worth it... 200%.
