no i'm not. I thought about it but then I wondered if it's really worth it. I guess I haven't decided yet. I know Juan will tell me no. Maybe I can ask for part of it as my birthday present! haha he can't get around that one ;)

@@TinkerSofi my FI was like "are you kidding me? Only four hours? Get them to extend it until as late as we can". My TA took care of it...its on my wedding builder and we have the sky deck until 1AM BUT I haven't told my FI how much it is yet. It's costung more than the rental of the sky deck. I have a feeling i may have to ask for that as a birthday present too lol

@@TinkerSofi according to my website builder it's $15/pp. My TA is following up because when we asked the WC she said "yes, we can give you until 1AM" and never mentioned the cost.

ohh ok, just out of curiosity, until what time does your regular reception go and then how much are you paying extra? How are you working that out with the DJ/amplifier?

@@TinkerSofi sorry $15/pp/hour.

 

We asked if we could extend it and they just did it. Other than making our deposits and sending the STDs we have done zero planning. I haven't worked any of he logistics out yet.

 

I think we're booked for ceremony at 4:30, cocktails 5-6:30, ceremony 6:30-10:30 + extending until 1AM.

I'd love to extend ours until 1. having a shorter wedding was the biggest compromise for me to make a DW but it seemed no hotels really had the option to have it until late!

I am thinking of extending ours until 12pm and then go to the bar after that. I think mine will be $900 extra based on the amount of people I have.

Yeah, Juan wants to go to a club in downtown after but our reception will end at 11 so far, by the time we change, get everyone in cabs, meet up downtown and then get into a club it will be around 12:30. I just don't think it's worth it.

Ya I am not sure either! 11 may be more reasonable than 12 lol! but.. besides you - people may not even want to change. Depending on what they are wearing. You could play by ear. I don't think pay $900 an hour for alcohol is worth it to me but I think I am going to just bit the bullet. Let's just say - I will get all of the guests still there drinking lol

yeah I know that my fiance and I will want to change for sure if we do that but I don't know about everyone else. I just think that by the time we get to downtown and into a club we might have lost the wedding party mood haha. 

 

I was thinking of extending it until 12 but right now all the big expenses are due so I don't know if that's gonna happen. It really wouldn't be so much for us for just an hour. I don't think we could pay until 1 though so we might have to move the party to the hotel club.

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
