Is it possible to move the dinner up to like 5:30? I know that when our bridal party was done with the rehersal they were all hungry and ready to eat.

Otherwise what about arranging a cocktail hour type thing with the resort in a area that is not the bar? I know that our resort in MX didn’t advertise this but did offer it. Hope that helps! =)

I’m having my rehearsal at the same time (3-4p) and we’re heading to dinner like, right afterward.  I imagine we’ll do a little cocktail/apps hour then we’ll actually eat dinner around 5:30p.  After dinner, I’d like to do something with our wedding party like go bowling. 

I’d suggest moving your dinner up though – unless you can find something fun for everyone attending the rehearsal to do to fill the time 🙂

Our rehearsal is at about 6 and dinner at 7:30, we’re just doing dinner (no drinks or dates, can’t afford it!) so dinner wont take very long, maybe until 9 at the latest, so we’re going to a bar next door after so that everyone can come and we can all drink on our own dime!


I don’t think its necessary to plan the whole night of for them.. maybe just say ‘we’re doing this, everyone is invited’ and do whatever you want to do.. if they’re from out of town- they may have things they want to do while in Orlando

I think just dinner would be enough… you’ve got to rest up for your big day, after all.  Maybe have a list of local bars (ask the hotel) or movie theaters available for those who want to go out, but I wouldn’t plan beyond that.

I agree with Miss Longcoat I would let them decide and probably try and get as much rest as you and you FH can get….

The Day of is a BIIIIIIIIG day, it’s long, and at the end of it you’ll be glad you got some rest the night before… it’s hard enough to sleep that night anyways, try and get a nice long bath and other things to relax before you don’t have a chance. lol
