Forget the rules and be creative on your special day. Try something unique that will allow you to surprise your guests as you update old traditions.

Say “I Do” in the Morning

Having a morning wedding will completely change the atmosphere of your ceremony, making it both fresh and casual. Rise and shine to the morning breeze and slip into the perfect gown.

Guests can arrive between 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. and the reception can be a lovely brunch with fresh organic fruit, salads, pancakes, crepes and waffles, iced coffee and mimosas – all served family-style.

The best part is that your attendees will enjoy a friendlier environment where everyone can interact. Since the ceremony ends relatively early, you can spend plenty of time with your new husband afterwards. Linger at the resort, enjoy the activities program, look at your party pictures etc.

Cocktails Before the Ceremony

Hosting the cocktail reception before the wedding ceremony is a great way to kick off an incredible day. If you organize it this way, chances are that guests will feel like family at the reception; you can help avoid those awkward conversations and create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

Another benefit is that everyone will be present for the wedding ceremony! Arriving earlier for drinks will encourage your friends and family to move around the area freely.  This is definitely an excellent perk for those will be accompanying you on your special day, and a brilliant way of thanking them.

Dance the Night Away

What if you prefer a very small, private wedding ceremony but you want to celebrate and party with all of your friends and family? A great solution is to have a dance party after your ceremony with as many people as you want. You can focus on the music and hire a DJ or even a live band. Everyone will appreciate it and you’ll have a blast with everyone on your guest list!

All of this and more is possible during a destination wedding at Velas Resorts. For more tips and information contact a Velas wedding coordinator!
