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

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
