I have a 2pm wedding time. Do you have any idea what I can do until dinner time.? We want to have our first dance. What des it mean to be semi-private at the restaurant? Will we have a dance floor for our first dance?

Hi there! I have a noon wedding time but would have preferred the 2pm-it was taken though. You have to rent a dance floor, unless you just want to make room at the restaurant. The semi-private reception just means that you may be sharing the area with another bride or two, depending if you have other brides getting married that day. There are 3 slots per day for brides, noon, 2pm and 4pm. If they are all full, most likely it will be all 3 of you, depending what time you eat. Since ours is at noon, we are going to take a few pictures, then head over to Rick's Cafe for the afternoon, come back, shower, and have our dinner. It will all work out!! When are you getting married?

I'm not renting a dance floor, we are all super laid back and have read a TON of reviews on how to make things free. We are going to try to slip some venders on the beach some $$ to play after the wedding and just dance on the beach and then just assign different people to run & get drinks so we don't have to pay for a bartender & all that. We are bringing our own chiffon and tulle to do the arch, as i really am not sure what that will look like. Do you have a picture of the fold up arch? That's interesting...

I am getting married at the Riu Palace Tropical Bay, so there COULD be a difference, but I know they offer green (not sure why) and white chairs. I would request the white, as i think they only give you the white if you have over 20 guests-stupid. As far as the chairs that I've seen in some brides that have sent me pics, they are just basic lawn chairs and it looks like it is kind of woven plastic in the back-if that makes sense. Your wedding is coming up!! I still have to wait until December.

I am thinking about getting a runner as well. We changed our wedding to the beach instead of the garden. I feel like it might be a little more private on the beach. I think the runner will give it a great look and also help me walk down the isle. what shoes are you planning on wearing? I made a pair of barefoot sandals, and was thinking about making them for my bridesmaids but haven't yet. Any thoughts?
I am bringing Welcome bags for everyone that will be in their rooms when they get there so we are not doing favors. The bags are going to be filled with goodies, plus having only 20 people coming allows me to personalize each bag a little more
Im wondering how much decor I should bring along for the reception. How are you setting it up?
Also - are you doing a guestbook? I saw one on etsy that is a thumbprint palm tree. it was super cute and fun for everyone that was on the trip. I would probably frame it afterwards.
