FORGETTING CURFEWS THE EXPERT: Destination-wedding guru Michelle Rago and her team have designed events as far-flung as New Delhi and the Cote d’Azur and as close as her home base on the East Coast. Don’t assume the music at your wedding functions can go as late as you want.
Resort life operates at a dif erent pace, and management takes seriously the ef ect events have on the surrounding community. Couples often feel it’s such a big spend that they’re entitled to that privilege, when the opposite is actually true.
Weddings are very tough on hotels, and even if you’ve bought out a property, it doesn’t guarantee dancing into the wee hours. THE FIX Have a very open dialogue with the general manager or catering manager of the property to understand your limitations before signing a contract. Also, move the late-night dancing inside or of site to a local hangout.
