During the process of planning a wedding, the many times people say “it goes by so fast!” is countless. By opting for a destination wedding in Puerto Rico, you can prolong your event to a whole weekend, and sometimes more. This way, you and your loved ones can build even more memories of one of the most special events of your life.
 
When planning a destination wedding, although it should be all about the couple, in reality you want your guests to be at the forefront of an amazing weekend and ensure they have the time of their lives – after all, they are traveling miles and miles to celebrate this major milestone with you. This is why The Condado Vanderbilt Hotel is the ideal stage for your wedding weekend escape. Not only can you celebrate all your special moments in one place, but your guests will be taken care of with our exceptional concierge and butler service, elegant rooms, one of a kind fine-dining outlets and beachfront location.


Here you will find a memorable day by day agenda of an exciting wedding weekend here at The Condado Vanderbilt:

 

Wedding Weekend Escape – Day by Day

Thursday

 

The first day of events is usually when most of your guests will be arriving, so you want to give them the welcome they deserve. Treat them with a welcome cocktail and a weekend goodie bag at check-in. Make sure this bag contains everything they need for the weekend, from snacks and refreshments, to a printed itinerary of wedding events, hotel amenities and tour options for them to enjoy the hotel, as well as the local culture. Although you don’t have to plan your guests every second, you want to make sure they are comfortable, and entertained.


On this day, couples usually celebrate a Rehearsal Dinner with family and friends, especially their wedding party. This can be a traditional sit-down dinner, or can be personalized with an outdoor event, like a BBQ in one of our verandas or patios. Some couples prefer to make it more of a welcome reception for all your guests to join in on the start of the celebration. 

 

Friday

 

It is important to relax the day before your wedding. Couples can choose to lounge with their guests around the pool or beach, or get a couple’s massage to unwind before the big day. Brides can also enjoy a Spa day with the bridesmaids to have mani-pedis ahead of time or even book a tour with your group to enjoy your destination. Talk to our concierge and let us coordinate the perfect outing for you, how about a pre-wedding luxury catamaran? Or maybe horseback riding or zip-lining in the rainforest for the adventure seekers.

 

Saturday

 

A memorable and beautiful day awaits! Although nerves are normal, you will mostly feel relaxed, calm, and truly happy to finally see your dream right in front of you. Celebrating your new life with all your loved ones under one roof is a one of a kind experience. Whether you have 20 or hundreds of guests, our elegant venues are the perfect place to say I do!  

 
Still want to party after the wedding reception is over? The Condado Vanderbilt’s VC Lounge will gladly welcome your guests. Also, another good thing about our location, is that Condado never sleeps, so your after-party can go on and on in one of our many festive neighboring sites. 
 

Sunday

 

No more jitters, now it is time to create a glorious end to a wonderful weekend. With our Bon Voyage Package you can choose from a Deluxe Continental Breakfast or a Live Station for you and your guests before the last goodbye. Sunday is usually check-out day, so what better way to enjoy before a trip back home than to raising your glasses and keep on cheering with the newlyweds. 
 

The wedding you have always dreamed of can also be unforgettable for your guests, by turning it into a vacation they will cherish forever, all in a legendary location. Contact us today!
