Silly question...are there washers and dryers for guests to use? We have 2 kids and are going for 2 weeks...on long trips I prefer to pack light and do laundry if possible....rather then 14 pairs of jean shorts lol


I'm wondering this too!

They have a laundry service but it is pretty pricey. My sisters came with their small kids. They ended up just packing a little detergent and doing a little laundry in the room and hanging it to dry...it dries quickly. I also jumped in the pool in my dress one night and it dried quickly and I wore it again....so no worries!

Oh I thought I would add in to remember to bring bug spray!!! And some after bite or something of the sort for when you ignore the bug spray bit and get a million little bites and can't stop scratching them!! Lol some people were lucky and didn't get any, some got about million. I got a bunch, mostly on my shins and ankles from wearing dresses in the evening. You don't notice them around at all....but these little bites are super itchy!! We have been home almost a week and they are still itchy.

Thinking outside the box...I have a 5pm ceromony...think there's any way to have everyone get food on their own and then have a 3 hour reception with drinks and dancing? I hate to pay for anyone over 25 and have it cut into party time as I feel 3 hours with dinner and cake will be so rushed...I've been to another destination wedding and the food was ok but if it meant more dancing fun time I would have been willing to grab included dinner from the buffet lol...think it's worth emailing pilar about? And does what I'm asking make sense? I'm starting to panic at the cost plus thinking I won't have enough time with everyone. Ceromony at 5 then pics prob 5-630....only leaves the wedding party 1.5 hrs for dinner and to meet back up....but is 2.5 hours in between too much for the guests? I guess they would have cocktail hour til 630 so maybe it would be ok? Opinions please!
Btw I would want cake at the reception so I would be paying whatever extra that is plus having a bar in the area...we are Irish lol

One lesson I learned was: It rained 15 minutes before our wedding and because of this our ceremony was pushed back to 5:40pm as a result we ran out of light for pictures. If I could redo things I wished I would have been cautious and had the ceremony at 4:00pm to build in time for nature.

In regards to having people eat on their own. The food at this resort was unbelieveable at the wedding. Several guests said: "this was the best wedding meal I've ever had." Put yourself in these peoples shoes... You have spent thousands of dollars to bear witness to your day. how would tou feel to go all this way for a ceremony and cake?

It is not a big deal to have the 2.5 hrs between things. There are bars 8 feet away from everything! Plus it is so so hot, getting out of the heat is a treat!

Good luck on what you decide! In hi dsite I wish I would habe had the ceremony earlier!

Did you only have the one centerpiece? What did you do for the other tables? Did you request certain colors for the flowers?

I see your point however when my family found out I pay per person extra they were like just have everyone go to one of the bars and party there...but to me I think having dinner together is less important bc we will just be gobbling it up at our tables...I'd rather have the dancing and the ability to have a private dance with my husband and my dad to songs we pick rather then dance at the sports bar to whatever's playing. Them saying they don't care about reception makes me think they assume that includes a dinner which I don't mind passing up if it means I can have A 3 hour dance/drink fest with everyone with a dj, speeches, and everything a wedding entails minus the meal...I'll talk with my parents tomm and see how they feel before I message pilar. It's just everything adds up and there are some things I don't want to compromise on like photographer and dj bc that's what I feel will make the memories....not just a night that whiz zed by. My brothers recent wedding reception was 6 hrs and felt too short so 3 hours is like crazy short in my mind

Ok, I was just giving my perspective! Clearly your mind is made up! Just go with what you want!
