Post your wedding week(end) itinerary here!

Recommended Posts

I am trying to conceptualize my wedding weekend itinerary and would love to see what other people are doing. Here is what I am thinking so far:


Friday: Welcome drinks at Grand Mayan and distribution of OOT bags


Saturday: Grand Mayan pool or beach party. Rehearsal and RD for wedding party. Drinks and salsa lessons for all guests.


Sunday: Everyone on their own (I will provide a list of tour operators/activities that are not too exhausting). Wedding at 6:30pm at Casa las Palapas by the Dazzling Details.


Monday: Brunch and good byes


Am I missing anythinghuh.gif What are your plans?

Wed: arrive at the resort, relax for the night

Thurs: work out all the details with the resort WC, relax on our own, most of the guests arrive

Fri: spa treatments, rehearsal, group activity - catamaran cruise, welcome/rehearsal dinner, maybe bachelor/bachelorette parties

Sat: guests on their own, wedding at 4pm, reception at 6pm

Sun: brunch w/ the newlyweds, group activity - Dunn's River Fall excursion, guests on their own

Mon: guests depart, newlywed goes on to HM


That's the plan we have so far. The beach at COR is small and private, so we should be mingling together most of the time and relax and do whatever...

Thursday, Jan 3 Bachelor and Bachelorett Party 7 PM

All invited and meeting up with the guys later in the evening


Friday, Jan 4 Rehearsal at Riu Jalisco Lobby 5:00 PM

Cocktail Hour at Panchos' Bar 6 - 7 PM

Rehearsal All Invited Dinner 7 - whenever

Dancing at the Hotel Club till we can't dance anymore


Saturday, Jan 5 Early departure Ladies 7:45 AM

Groom/guests 3:45 PM



Sunday, Jan 6 Meet for breakfast 11:00 AM


Many are going for vacation ahead of time or staying later so we did not

accommodate their tours and such. The All Inclusive Resort has many things

and they can pick and choose as they like. There will be some shopping for the ladies but that is going to be spontaneous.

Thanks for all the itinerary ideas ladies. We have a lot of guests flying in, but didn't want to have to pay for an out of town dinner. So we are planning on meeting up with all of our out of town guests after the rehersal for drinks and dessert! :)

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
