Sandals Wedding Help Needed!

Recommended Posts

I booked a wedding at Sandals Antigua for October 2016.  The pre-wedding planner is scheduled to call me for the first time in April.  We can't decide what time would be best to have the wedding.  They said it can be as early as 11am or as late as 4pm.  It will only be the two of us.  Not sure how the weather would be early versus later.  Any opinions?

Also, does anyone know do they take pictures before or after wedding? If you have an 11am wedding, when do they do the dinner?

Any info would be appreciated!

Hi Melissa and welcome to the boards!!! Congrats on your Antiqua wedding in Oct - wow...sounds very romantic!

 

One consideration for timing we offer our wedding couples is to consider the time the sun will set on your Wedding Day. It works out best if their timeline allows for 1 to 1.5 hours before sunset for their newlywed photo shoot - to capture the GOLD ....like you see in these magical wedding moments that matter we took at the Beloved Hotel for a 2-person wedding recently....enjoy!

 4 pm will be for sure the best option, as mentioned above all because of the sun. I guess at 4pm it won't be that hot already.

Hi Melissa, 

 

As a Weddingmoon Specialist for Sandals, They have the best plan for you to enjoy your day whether rain or shine. Rainy Season in Antigua runs from May to November, however there is no guarantee that it will rain on any particular day. I would say have your wedding earlier in the morning as it rains mostly in the evening in the caribbean during that season. Just keep your fingers cross and trust the creator for a bright sunshiny day:) I know Sandals has a plan b in case of rain. 

P.S. You made a great choice  Sandals Antigua is perfect for your wedding

    • Greetings. I'm really confused because my younger sister's marriage is fixed. Now the date is fixed for April 15th. We are planning to conduct a function only with minimal members. I neec to find out a best wedding venue or organizer. I need your advice which will be really helpful. Thank you
    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
