@calgarybride2015 yay!! I know time is flying, what time is ur ceremony? what kind of paper work?


I originally had thought 330pm but changed it to 300pm to ensure enough light for photos and honesty, I want to enjoy the mariachi band too! Also incase it doesn't start on time. I've been told we lose light at 530pm!

We have to have in our menu selections, timing, songs, seating chart, cake and flower selections, etc. I'm sure it's ok if it changes some by the time we arrive but maybe they just want a heads up on what to expect.

What's your ceremony time and timeline for the day/night. I think I have mine down if you wouldn't mind giving your opinion!

@calgarybride2015 wow your resort is way more prepared then mine, I haven't even heard back from the wedding coordinator yet. We have a 4pm ceremony booked and the date. As per my resorts forum we hear from them around the 3 month mark to pick out everything. But should be something like 4pm ceremony till 430 giving us a hour or so for pictures then dinner starts at 6-8 then the reception from 8-11 seems to be the pattern for every wedding at our resort. As for all the details I can't really do anything till I have confirmation of numbers this month for guests and hear from the resort about tables and restaurant choose ect. We have our dinner at one of he a la carts. So I am trying to be patient and wait and hope it will all fall into place. Lol
Absolutely you can run it by me !! Love to hear it

55 guests booked plus bride and groom :)

@Dreamteam17

 

When I booked my package back in May they sent me all my locations to choose from, options for open bars, receptions, cakes, flowers, extras, etc.   Did yours not?     From then on I have just emailed them with questions, to get quotes for certain flowers, etc.  

 

This is what I am thinking

3:00-3:30pm ceremony

3:30-4:00pm quick toast and group photos

4:00-5:00pm mariachi band then guests can head over to the palapa for open bar/sign guestbook/mingle.

I want to see some of the mariachi band/have photos with them, so I assume I will do photos with groom from about 415pm-515pm

500pm ish - 11pm will be reception dinner and dancing

11pm - disco

 

I was going to do 330pm as I said above, but if it runs late I definitely can't see any of the mariachi band as I want to ensure I have atleast 1 hour for photos!  Also scared to lose the light!

 

I think my layout is also fairly standard for my resort when the palapa is used  (covered hut like building on the private beach)  We aren't using an A'la Carte for dinner.  Yours sounds great!

 

Our final payments are due October 17, so also hoping to see that our final numbers stick!

Anyone here planning a Bermuda wedding?

@calgarybride2015 schedule sounds good. You could always do your photos first then head to the band and mingle with your guests that way heading to dinner late is better then heading to pictures late then you can relax :) unless the band is only there till 5?
I haven't received anything from my resort. No restaurant choices no reception options no flower brochures nothing !!! I have relied on this site and my resorts forum for everything. If I didn't have this I would be in the dark. It's really annoying but hopefully I'll hear something soon :)

I could have the mariachi band at the reception.  Most brides have it right after the ceremony from all the reviews I have read on my resort.  Something to think about :) Thanks!

 

I would be totally frustrated too, but I guess without this board we wouldn't know any different on how it came/does work!
