We are getting married at the Playacar Palace this June. We have 30 people coming. Our ceremony is at 4pm. We are not having a private reception, we opted to have the semi-private dinner in the italian restaurant.
Can anyone tell me about how the flow of events worked for your events?
Right now with the ceremony at 4, we are planning to have our guests go to the Cielo Terrace at 5 for a cocktail hour while we have
some pictures down on the beach with our wedding party. Then everyone will go to dinner together at 6pm when the restaurant opens. Has anyone had the semi-private dinner? Is it realistic to think that we may be able to have some toasts and cheers all together at dinner?
I am also concerned about what to do after the dinner. We cannot afford to do a private reception with a DJ and dancing so after the dinner we were thinking we'd just go to the hotel lounge/bar areas with all of our friends together. Has anyone done this or can you share any info about how your events went?
Thank you to anyone that replies, I am feeling nervous.
