Reception Schedule

Recommended Posts

nice timeline... definitely need to give mine more thought. I have it printed out but started to work on it and got frustrated! I don't want a garter/bouquet toss. Not many singles so I would throwing a bouquet to maybe one person? lol Guess that leaves more time for dancing! :)

hmm I was wondering how to split the time in our dinner/reception time too.. 

our ceremony is at 2, so "cocktail hour" is 3-6 (haha!)


6pm is dinner, so was thinking of doing first dance right away, but this can also happen during the time the guests are finishing up their dinner, so that shortly after they can all join. mother/father dances can be at this time too. 


we have a buffet, I guess I need to talk to the resort to see what time they are serving the food. 


We didn't get a dj which I guess makes things more difficult but will have to figure something out!

Hi Laura,


This time is one of the most precious time in our life and if you keep thinking about the time out of this function, it will act as a burden in your mind and prevent you from enjoying this great function.As you are starting this function at 8.00 pm, then in such case it will go up to 1.00 am in the morning. If you want to finish it early, then you can curtail some function, only then it'll be possible for you to time out early.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
