I have a slew of questions, so decided to consolidate for the sake of the board.
1. The BM gifts are things that they can use on our destination wedding weekend, so I thought it might be cute to send them a little 'can't wait to see you package' with their gifts in it. Cute idea or tacky not to give it to them in person/at the RD? (None of them live local, so dropping off in person before the wedding isn't an option.)
2. I'm just beginning to think about the order of things, and having trouble figuring out how to move between events after the ceremony. We do not want to do our first dance immediately after our entrance, but what do we do once we walk into the reception, then? I know this sounds stupid, but I'm really actually boggled by this one!
3. Due to a noise ordinance, the music has to stop at 10pm. The DJ is well aware of this, but as none of our guests are local, should we put the time window on the invites (as opposed to just the start time), or leave it to the DJ to handle?
4. When is appropriate to tip the vendors?
Thanks in advance!
