Frequently Asked Questions
Santa Marta sounds hot – what should I wear to the wedding?
Mamancana Nature Reserve is very much a tropical destination – it's in the Caribbean after all! We expect the temperature to sit between 26–33ºC, day and night. Both the wedding ceremony and reception will take place outdoors, so it'll be important to pick your clothes accordingly.
Our dress code is Beach Formal. For women, jumpsuits or light dresses are probably your best bet. We also recommend wearing wedge and block heels as the terrain in Mamancana is uneven. For men, consider summer suits, linen trousers, and light dress shirts in linen or cotton. We have set up a Pinterest board with ideas for what to wear here.
We also strongly encourage you to embrace the Caribbean spirit and wear as many bright colours as possible!
What time should I arrive?
Please arrive at Mamancana Nature Reserve at 4:00 p.m.
Should I bring a gift?
Travelling across the world to celebrate our wedding day with us is the most important gift you can give, so please don't buy or bring anything else.
UPDATE: If you are unable to attend but would like to give us a present, you can donate money to our Honeymoon Fund or our chosen charity Mission Blue at our GiftList here:
Please feel free pass on the 2.6% administrative charge to us!
Are there other events happening before/after the wedding?
Yes! If you are attending the wedding you can attend a tour on a boat and/or dinner on Thursday 13th April (two days before the wedding) and a BBQ on Sunday 16th April (the day after the wedding). More details will appear on the Itinerary page closer to the wedding.
Please let us know in advance if you plan to attend any or all of these events when you RSVP.
Can I take and post pictures of the wedding on social media?
Absolutely! Snap and upload away on your social media platform of choice. Feel free to use the hashtag #LinayJon2023 too!
