Ladies getting married on a Saturday.....  When are you telling your guests to arrive/ when are you arriving at your resort?  I am having a hard time with this one.

Hi...May 4, 2013...Hard Rock, Punta Cana...Can't wait to share ideas...Just finishing up my STD's and will post as soon as they are done. Bride81...I am getting married on a Saturday...I plan on hosting a Welcome Dinner on the Thursday before so it would be nice to have everyone there by then. I will post a schedule of events on my website and let them know when FI and I are arriving and then guests can choose if they want to be there for all the events. As long as everyone is there by Saturday, I will be happy.

would you mind sharing your schedule with me?  I definitely want to do a welcome dinner, and I want to arrange a booze cruise/ snorkeling trip so people can meet.  Hopefully on that Thursday.  Are you inviting everyone to the welcome dinner?  And, are you doing a rehearsal dinner?

I really haven't given this much thought and maybe it's because I have a relatively small group.  As of now my room block is setup for a check-in on 5/14 and checkout 5/20. I know that many of my guest will use this time for personal vacations, and some will probably stay else where for the beginning or the end, but I am requesting that everyone stay at the AI between 5/16 and 5/19.

I am arriving the Saturday before and I know most of my immediate family is coming on Wednesday. The tentative plan is welcome cocktails/apps for everyone on Thursday so that everyone can meet. I will have a rehearsal dinner Friday night for bridal party immediate family. Saturday wedding and then maybe a farewell brunch on Sunday .

This is great, thanks bride81 for starting it!!  I'm still trying to decide on which resort, but am leaning towards Dreams Riviera Cancun (I'm trying to read the entire thread before making that decision, but it's like 850+ pages long ... ).  Maybe I should just bite the bullet and pick it ... anyone else as indecisive as I am???   confused.gif

    • Hey fellow wedding planners. When me and my wife planned our wedding I started making playlists both for the reception and for the dance floor.  I wanted it to be more towards indie and alternative music and since I started sharing the playlists on Facebook and other social media I got so much appreciation I wanted to make them available to others planning their wedding. For the reception Will you marry me? Let's play this at our wedding - INDIE / FOLK / ALTERNATIVE For the dance floor I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor - Indie Party Anthems I also have a few other playlists that might be of interest for playing at a wedding It's all about JAZZ Fabulous Fingerpicking Folk (Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkle, Bright Eyes, Iron & Wine, Beatles etc) 88 Keys Of Magic - Contemporary Piano - Jazz / Neo Classical and More Fingers, Wood, Nylon and Steel - Contemporary Acoustic Guitar Instrumental Chill Out Gems Hope it can be of help or maybe just inspiration for your own wedding playlist! Let me know what you think!   Flag  Quote  Agree  Like

    • Since we each live on opposite sides of the country, we are planning a VERY casual AHR in each town, a pizza party thing, the impportant people from each ide will be at the DW,I have a reputation for being independant and unpredictable so folks are wondering about this wedding, I'm just saying I'm not having it the colors i really want(fuschia and orange)pizza and beer sounds good to me
