@@kfracassi - That stinks the thread was archived! :(  Based on what you described, I think people may have been having their ceremony in one location, cocktail hour in another and the dinner reception in another.  I got married at Generations last month and when working with the onsite Wedding team, they kept referring to the "Reception" as the "Dinner Reception" & "Cocktail Hour" as the "Cocktail Reception" so that may be what's causing the confusion. 

 

It is totally up to you & the resort's available private event space(s).  Some people do 3 locations others do 2. Generations has fewer private event locations than EDR so I limited mine to 2 and made my decision based on what I thought would flow best with the times we selected.  

 

Example - since my ceremony was on the sky deck (30 min long) & the cocktail package I selected had a 2 hour minimum, I decided to have both my ceremony & cocktail hour on the sky deck with the thought that guests would kill the 1st half hour taking pictures of the views, bridal party etc...then enjoy the rest of the time sipping cocktails & noshing on apps. Since evenings were chilly and breezy that time of year, I opted to have the dinner/reception on the pier.

 

Hope this helps!

@@kfracassi - I'm confused, what site was archived...? both of the EDR threads (Official EDR/EDCR and EDR Brides) are active and available, they just roll off the page if there aren't any recent comments. Links to both are in my signature below. 

 

the private reception events (4 hours) are a combination of dinner and a reception. so you wouldn't have to go to dinner elsewhere and THEN have a reception. dinner is served first, and then you break out the party. 

 

we had our reception at 3:30 or 4, did all of our group formal photos (friends & family), then sent everyone to the martini bar for cocktails. our reception started at 6pm. while everyone was at the martini bar we did our couples photos. some folks went to JoJos for food because they weren't sure how quickly dinner would be served and they were hungry. but the onsite WC herded everyone from the martini bar to Tucanes, and everyone else showed up on time for our entrance. 

 

does that help? 

 

So the EDR site was archived and no more comments are allowed :(, so I was hoping you guys could help me with something. I'm looking at the older posts on EDR, I tried to just start from the beginning, and I feel like I may be missing something or just messing up. So I have my actual ceremony set for the beach around 3:30p and then I was going to have my dinner/reception at Tucanes around 6p. It looks like the people earlier on were talking about having the ceremony at one place, dinner at another restaurant, and then the reception somewhere else. I thought the dinner and reception were grouped together. If they are separate, is the reception longer?

 

Has anyone experienced this? Or can someone just explain how their day went and such?

 

Thank you! :)

Ladies - Crazy logistics question.

 

How does everyone get to the airport with all of the wedding luggage?  I know this sounds crazy, but we'll have at least 4 large suitcases, 2 carry-ons, my wedding dress, and a 100lb dog (we're dropping him off at a boarding facility near the Chicago airport).  

 

I am in serious doubt that all of that stuff will fit inside of our car (a Jetta), so my other consideration was using a pet friendly car service to get an SUV - however this is going to cost us about $200!  Our friends/family also have smaller vehicles (city living), and I couldn't bear to ask anyone to take us to the airport at 6am on a Sunday morning.
