I had a really crappy morning so far but I received an email from the wedding consultant at the resort. She mistakenly charged me with a private reception for our wedding instead of the semi-private. Since we have already paid the invoice and she asked if we want to keep the event private or she could refund us the amount. We decided to go ahead to go forward with the private reception. :D  I am super stoked for this because I really wanted to do the private reception but we couldn't get it at that time. We chose the oceanfront gazebo as our private reception. Instead of the 1.5 hour of the semi-private reception, we will have a duration of 3 hours with a sound system, servers, open bar and the dinner. Ahhh, I can't wait!  :)

 

I'm planning to spend my entire work day reading through the reception posts on this forum and planning the reception.  :P If you have any advice or tips, I would love to hear them!

@hellosassypants Hope you had a fun day of planning!! We're doing our private reception poolside. I ordered round white paper lanterns for the trees, and little votive candles for the tables to go with the centerpieces. I think my fiancĂ© threw in some tiki torches but for the life of me I can't actually remember if they were on the final paperwork  :)  

 

Only a few more weeks to go!!!!

That's what I'm saying! LOL, the beginning of the email was "Dear N & C, I hope this email finds you great!". YEAH IT DID!  :D

 

Now I really have to get a play list together and a bunch of other things. Woohoo!

That's great!!!!   Even though you paid for it, it's like a special surprise you didn't expect.

 

We did our entrance and then speeches right away,Right after we had our dinner. After dinner we went person to person to introduce ourselves and say something about ourselves - was really just an AA meeting, was hilarious. It ended with my husband and I so we got a chance to say thank you to everyone for coming.  Then we danced for a couple hours, then we cut the cake, then we danced some more.

 

I had a 6 hour reception though so my times would be more scattered than a 3 hour reception. 

 

I liked our lay out though, so it may give you an idea of how to schedule things just closer together.

    We all know, how essential is to do planning and execute the planning in a proper manner. Just consult with the wedding planner they will suggest in an appropriate manner.

      Your wedding celebration is really essential. Not only is it a position where your visitors go after the wedding to renew and appreciate some food and have a dancing - It's also the position that delivers people from two different family members and probably societies together, developing a long term connection between the two.

      To accomplish this, it's essential that you select, beautify and arrange your wedding reception effectively, so to help you we've come up with some amazing information, regardless of what price range, design or concept you have.

        It is really good and special surprise for you. Last year in the month of December, we had our private reception party at the Addison of Boca Raton. The location itself is very pretty, the giant Banyan tree really makes a statement in the courtyard. So, enjoy your reception and have a great fun at the place.
