My finance and I will be getting married April 2015 at the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach Resort. I've always envisioned a laid-back yet elegant beach wedding, so I'm super excited! We'll have a beach ceremony at 4:30pm, followed immediately by cocktail hour for guests while we take photos (we decided to book with Saab Weddings--which I'm really excited about), dinner from 7:00pm until 8:30pm at the resort's open-air restaurant, and then the dancing/reception and maybe bonfire outdoors again on the beach from 8:30pm until 10pm (unfortunately outdoor festivities must end by 10pm at this resort) My question: is 1.5 hrs enough time for the dancing portion? I'm especially concerned because we'll be spending quite a bit extra to have a dance floor, DJ, bar, seating and decorations outdoors for under 2 hours. Has anyone had any experience with a "beach party" dance reception? We plan on doing traditional 1st dance, father-daughter and mother-son dances, but more than anything we want people to have a great time under the stars. I've been thinking about trying to make dinner just one hour, from 7pm until 8pm, so we could at least squeeze 2 hours out of the night. Unfortunately we can't make dinner time any earlier. My life would be much easier if I just decided to have our dance party at the resort's disco, but I really wanted a beach party and don't want to give up on that idea (yet). Any ideas/feedback would be much appreciated!
