    Hey guys!  I was wondering what time everyone had their weddings at? The day that my fiance and I wanted already has a 4pm wedding, so the only other option is at 2pm, which just seems odd to me. SO I thought I'd see how it worked for everyone else? I think my main concern is what you do after the wedding? It seems too early to have dinner and to late to do lunch. Help!!!  -Cora

    Mine is at 4pm as well. If you did 2 pm it will just take longer to get sunset pics, that does seem early since most receptions are later in the evening/night . But hey it's really no rules to your own wedding! Maybe you could do some type of entertainment for the crowd to kill time

        I know it's crazy!!!!!!  Yes, pretty much.  Starting to try to pack everything I'm taking - all the OOT bag items, plus I've brought the stuff for our centerpieces.  It's ALOT!!!!  So, that's overwhelming right now.  But the process has been so great with the WC though so that's been a blessing.  I think I can all that stuff (not including our clothes, etc) into 1 HUGE roller duffle bag and 1 HUGE suitcase - neither of which the owners want back.   So, we won't have to check as much on the way home.

I'm going down in couple weeks to drop some stuff off and finalize some things. I plan on selling a lot of my stuff to someone so I don't have to carry everything back lol

              We are staying at Wild Orchid but actually having the wedding at Seawind which is the beach club on the property. We hired a separate WC so ill meet her when I go down. Initially we were having everything at wild orchid side but I wanted certain food, the reception outdoors by the pool and kids so Seawind was more flexible.

                I did mine at 4pm and worked out perfectly for pictures! If you start too late, some of your wedding photos will have a dark background rather than those cool sunset shots you want. My wedding photographer told me to stick with the 4pm time slot rather than pay extra for 5pm or 5:30pm. We ate dinner at 7pm. Had reservations at the French restaurant - even ran a little late getting those last minute perfect shots!

                  We have 29 guests, so 31 people total.  I am doing 3 round tables and white wooden chairs.  So, at table one will be our immediate family and us.  I got Mr. and Mrs. signs for our chairs.  All 3 tables are having the same centerpieces, which are pommanders from the ceremony will be in a bowl with 3 little white tealight laterns around it along with seashells and starfish around.  I am just doing white table clothes and napkins.  I wanted everything to be simple and elegant so just enough color but not over doing it - my wedding colors are fuchsia and teal so that could easily happen! :)

                    sounds lovely. we have about 100 guests but i get the final count next week. i'm guessing about 11 or 12 tables so everyone aren't on top of eachother :-) my colors are tiffany blue/aqua (pretty much the same color) and silver, with fuschia/hot pink flowers so we pretty much have the same thing. i'm doing white table clothes but im getting the napkins and chair sashes made in tiffany blue. i still don't know what to do for the centerpieces yet. i'll figure that out soon. i'm also bringing the material to drape the chuppa or gazebo. i'll know more details after i make a trip down there. i also have table numbers that are blinged out. still need to order mr and mrs signs, i've found so many cute ones online! it's def harder planning for a larger destination party, so much more of everything is needed!
