    Our wedding was at 5pm and I had my hair/makeup appt at 1:30.  The timing was pretty good I think, I had a little time to myself directly after before my family all came to my room for the last hour.  Hope that helps!  My makeup and hair held all the way to the end of the evening with no running or smudging or anything, and we had dinner outside as well!

    This really is my main worry....we get married at 11am... how will i possibly have enough time to get my hair and make up done AND spend time getting ready with my bridemaids and family without feeling RUSHED :-(  I hope the spa staff start work early, like 5am'ish LOL.

     

    If there are any brides who have also got married at 11am and managed to fit it all in nicely I would like to hear from you :-) or any brides getting married at the same time, how is your morning planned?

      Now Jade, April 24, 2013

      11am Fountain Ceremony

      Dinner: 4 course @Castaways +cake!

       

       

      So we had our wedding on April 24th and everything was amazing!!!!  I went to Mexico not having a reception dinner booked in, but it all worked out.  My wedding planner, who came with us, calmed my nerves and made sure the day went smoothly.  Highly recommend him: www.weddingbutlers.com  He has done many weddings at Now Jade so it was great that he knew Deisy and what we could push for and what we could get.  Wedding Butlers also upgraded our room to the Preferred Club, so nice!  There was a bottle of champagne waiting for us when we checked in.

      We had an early start on the day of the wedding, our ceremony was at 11am.  My hair appointment was at 7:30am, she did a wonderful job!  I loved it.  My 3 bridesmaids loved theirs as as well.  We were served mimosas too!  Then back to my room with all my girls plus a couple close friends to get ready.  Derek went to his brothers room to get dressed.  I had ordered grapefruit juice, orange juice, champagne, fruit, bagels, yogurt and cereal for everyone to snack on/drink.  This was a great idea because people tend to forget to eat! 

      Derek and I wanted to do 'first look' photos, suggested by my AMAZING photographer!  Such a good idea.  So off I went to do that.  I am soooo glad we chose to do this.  Derek and I had such a special, private moment, caught on camera.  I cry when I look at the photos! ha!  If anyone is looking for a photographer, I can't say enough good things about Aaron Dieppa.  He is based in California but goes all over for destination weddings.  He was by far the BEST decision I made www.aarondieppa.com

      Time to walk down the aisle!  Sound system was great.  We gave Deisy our ipod with the songs to be played in what order.  The aisle was a little narrow but that's quite minor.  My aunt used to be a minister so she preformed our symbolic ceremony.  It was wonderful, very personal.  After the ceremony we did have champagne served, don't know if that was worth the money.  We could have just made the 10 extra steps and ordered it from the bar....for free...haha.  Oh well.

      Time for pictures,  we did wedding party pictures, group shots and had a few of just us.  Then we just told everyone to meet at the lobby bar at 7pm right before dinner, and then Deisy would escort us over.  Most people got into their swimming suites and went to the pool, while Derek and I went for a nap!  We needed it.  After our little siesta, time for more pictures.  LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!!!  I love them all!  I'm sure every bride is in love with their pictures.  But I think I'm extra in love.  Aaron captured really great moments of us just being us.  And then time for dinner!

      We were able to book in Castaways with a view of the ocean for our reception dinner.  It was amazing, all of our guests loved the dinner.  They were also flexible for a few fussy eaters.  The servers were fantastic, no one ever was close to having an empty drink and Derek loved the tuna so much he asked for more and they brought some more out! haha  Our wedding party had some speeches and toasts, we had some cake and headed to the Beach Bar to keep the party going! 

      Flowers!!!! How could I forget!?  Probably because I didn't have to worry about them!  My mom is a florist.  She went to Mexico 1 week before we arrived to find flowers! (and to vacation)  She went to Costco in Cancun and got most of them there!!!  She also was able to order some through the hotel.  Her room looked like a flower shop!  She had the A/C on high to keep the flowers as fresh as possible.  My dad was quite cold haha!  I'm not the least bit surprise the flowers turned out so beautiful!

      So much fun!  So exhausted! So worth it!  I am now married to the love of my life!  After all, that is what it comes down to!  My advice is to be as flexible as possible, there is a lot of stress and things to deal with in planning a wedding, I totally get it.  But you're in Mexico!  Enjoy it!  It is going to be soooo wonderful!

       

      Hair!  Love it!

          I had a 11am ceremony as well!  The earliest the spa would open for me was 7:30am to do my hair.  I did not have my make up done, I did it myself.  And I had 'first look' photos taken before the ceremony.  I had lots of time although you feel like there is never enough time!  So I'm sure you'll be fine!

          Totally Amazing!!!! stunning pictures, you look gorgeous! you have completely put my mind at ease about everything including the early start and everything else. 

           

          I am going with an open mind and flexibility and have decided apart from a few exceptions most of the day will be planned during the meeting with Pilar. I have a budget in mind and I have more than enough confidence in her to pull off a beautiful day.

           

          You said that you went for a little sleep after your ceremony, Can I assume that you put your dress back on for the evening reception? Thats a really good idea, I can not imagine staying in my dress ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT lol.

           

          You all looked completely relaxed whilst you were getting ready.

           

          CONGRATULATIONS

          Oh great, I did ask if it was possible to have my hair started at about 7.30 so thats good to hear.....seems like there is plenty of time to fit everything in.

           

          Did you do anything inbetween your ceremony and reception? I was thinking of having a buffet lunch instead of a cocktail hour as the buffet would all be included in the "all inclusive" and it would keep the group together for an hour or two before going our own ways until our reception dinner about 7.30pm.

           

          I would appreciate any words of advice.

           

          Thank you

            Hi Adrianne,

            Absolutely Beautiful!!!! Thanks so much for this quick review. Just wondering what the things were that your wedding planner said you could "push" on vs not. 

            Thanks, Trisha
