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?

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
