That's amazing we are 3 months away!!! Details please rehearsal dinner? The cocktail and reception ! So happy for you!!!' anything you wouldn't have done second time around?
Thank you!! We had a welcome cocktail hour we had secured through a promotion they had late last year. The welcome cocktail hour was the day before our wedding. We used the trio during that hour and had it at the North Beach. We didn't have a rehearsal dinner as I only had a MOH and a Best Man along with our flower girl. We met with the minister a couple of days prior to ceremoy to go over what it would go like, vows, etc.
Our ceremony was at the Gazebo. The sight is very visible to other guests because it is near the pools, but honestly, I tuned everyone else out. I just focused on my now husband and on the guests. I didn't really notice all the people that probably were watching our ceremony. Lol...
We forgoed the cocktail hour and instead all the guests congregated at the Lobby Bar for drinks while we took pictures. Our ceremony was at 5pm and it lasted longer than most because it was completely bilingual. The reception was at 7pm at the North Beach. The diff. between the North and South Beaches are that the North is more private. Our table was set against the ocean. It was such a scenic and beautiful sight! Since we forgoed the cocktail hour, we got to add an hour to our reception, so it went from 7-11pm. We brought our own vendors for DJ and mariachi. I brought my placecards, bows and overlays. We had the Ultimate Wedding package, so we just chose what was included already. With the views of the ocean, you really do not need to add much more. The view makes it! Our guests all said the food was delicious! They also enjoyed the cocktail appetizers the night before.
The day flew by soo fast! The salon girls did an excellent job with my hair and makeup. I was very nervous about it going in, but they surpassed my expectations.
Hmmmm...what would I not do? I would not have stressed out as much as I was the three months prior to date. Meeting with our coordinator put my fears aside.
Ask away if you have any questions..
