    Hi Ladies i'm hoping to get some good ideas....My wedding ceremony date is set for June 22, 2013 at 2pm (i wanted a later time but this was the only time available)..I am debating on what i should schedule for my guests after the ceremony being that the ceremony is so early. Would it be bad to give my guests some time to freshen up and then meet a little later for the cocktail hour and reception?

        Mine is also on the 22nd, but at 3pm. I haven't quite figured the after the ceremony part out either. It isn't dinner time or anything, so I would love to hear some ideas as well.

          Hi,

          Are you having yours at the Hard Rock as well?..i've been breaking my head over this..lol..i dont want to inconvenience my guests..but the best thing i could come up with is to have cocktail hour right after the ceremony then have the guest go up to their rooms to freshen up/change then have the reception ....i think thats what i will go by but we'll see..

            We are getting married at HRPC. We are also doing the cocktail hour immediately following, but are not sure of what we will do after that point. All I can say is that there are several things that people can do at the resort so don't feel too bad about it. It is a destination wedding and you do it for flexibility. I would just make people aware of it as early as possible through your website. 

             

            How many people are you expecting?

              oh cool!..maybe i will see you there  yes i agree with you-thats very true!

               

              i'm inviting about 95 people. I think the least that will show is 50>>>but then again people always back out closer to the date...so we'll see.

               

              How about you?

                I'm getting married there in April and our ceremony is @ 1 pm with Rick york for 30 mins and then we are hosting a cocktail party for 2 hours then our wedding boat is coming to et us at 4 pm . I think people are pretty relaxed while on vacation and won't be so uptight about timelines for the day and most might appreciate having the down time between ceremony and reception perhaps offer apps and cockles for people who choose to hang around and you will be ettng free private parties with the amount of guests you have coming :)

                      We also booked the boat, but for our "rehearsal" dinner. We wanted to do something a little different for our guest away from the resort. Flori has been amazing to work with, she is very punctual with responding to e-mail. The boat is also extremely reasonable for what you get. I couldn't find an excursion that would cost us less so we went with the boat.
