Reception Dragging On Forever/timeline

Recommended Posts

I like that your doing about 25 mins for photos. That makes sense. And then when guests are done they can go on to the cocktail. How many guests are you having? We are only going or have 25-30.

 

I'm so OCD about dining and the flow, it stems back to my childhood memories of my father sitting down to dinner and in a matter of fact way, letting his server the way her wants his meals served " please bring out my appetizer and leave no lag than serveral minutes once you see that it is completed until you serve my dinner salad" lol oh Greek men.

 

Anyways if my planner was saying allow for it I would be fine as long as there were no gaps in courses. And 5 courses would take about an hour and a half so she's prob correct.

 

 

Wafflesmom, I looked into it too! Couldn't afford to swing it.

 

I have never attended a DW before. If the hotel rooms were easily accessible than I think it wouldn't be a problem.

 

There are so many wedding traditions that I never even heard about, like how it's popular in NY to start dancing before food is even served and in between courses.

 

I love hearing everyone's ideas. It brings up really interesting perspectives and lets me think about all of my options!

@@LisaAnthonyPoppy - We are having about the same number of guests as you. We are at 25 booked with a few more maybes. The WC actually mentioned the brief break for photos between the ceremony and cocktail hour, so that was nice. I wouldn't have even thought about it. I think it'll be just enough without people standing around wondering what's next. Overall, I'm very happy with our (rough) timeline. I'm sure after the dancing/DJ, people will head to one of the resort's late night bars. :)

@@yasminea84 I do mind. I don't mean to put you off but until I hear them spoken by our officiant I kind of want to protect the sanctity of them, if that even makes sense. Thank you for asking though.

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?

    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
