Sample itinerary to give to guests?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if any of you could share the itinerry you provided for your guests so we can steal some of your ideas. We want the schedule to be really flexible but still let people know when we will be available to hang out and/or carouse over the weekend.


Thanks in advance!

Jenetta -


I see on your itinerary that you are presenting the grandmothers with bouquets in leiu of the bouquet toss! Great idea! I was just thinking about what I could do instead!


How are you planning on that happening? Are you doing it publically or privately? Details for this wonderful idea! :)

We're going to do it publicly. Basically, FI and I will give a short speech about how there marriages inspired us (grandfathers are dead), taught us about weathering the storm blah, blah. In leau of presenting my bouquet to a single lady, I am honored to share my bouquets with our grandmothers. I figured by this time, there won't be a dry eye in the place.


I will have small bouquets made up instead of giving mine. They aren't supposed to take it on the plane with them so I am debating creating two in silk or just having them smuggle them back. How bad would it be if customs stopped two lil' old ladies?

Though we didn't have too many "planned events" This is what we did. We printed them on parchement paper, rolled them up, tied a piece of raffia around them & put them in the Welcome bags. We used a script font :)

Rebecca, was your fiesta night another private event for your group, or just something Dreams had already?

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
