  1. thats odd because I printed out the exact same pictures of everything I emailed to Amber and showed them to the WC at the site. If you look at my bouquette there is nothing similiar to it in the catalogue! I was in no way trying to stir up anything espically with Amber, I have been fully supportive of her and loved her. The WC at the resort called the florist while i was in her office and explained what I wanted and followed up by giving her the picture. The bouquette was very unique. The same with the bouts and the MOH bouquet and aisle flowers. Since I sent the same exact pictures to Amber that I printed out and took with me (why would I change my mind on the flowers I was wanting ) how could it not have been apples to apples? And I never stated a price I wanted to keep with in ..... Hey I was just trying to give some advice from my experience sorry for any trouble!

The bride who posted her prices left out a couple of details such as the they were two completely different bouquets and not the same exact ones- original quote was from a photo she sent, the ones she purchased at the resort were from the floral catalogue, so yes the prices would be compeletly different! It wasn't an apples to apples comparison! If you know what you want and have your heart set on getting it then I still highly encourgae you to pre book for several reasons- it provides you the esae of having it done prior and you know that you will get exactly what you want (most flowers are imported so if the florist doesn't have what you really wanted and you didn't pre order you are out of luck!) , or you can work with the WC to make it fit your budget prior to going to the islands, that way you don't get caught up in the moment while at the resort and seeing all the beautiful choices - plus it saves time while you are at the resort!

We will be staying an extra 5 nights after all guests leave so we can do that on our own but thought others would enjoy it. Also my FI wants to take his daughter snorkeling. I think I'm trying to plan too much but that's the way I am. Any suggestions would be great!!!! Thanks hey there. we went to Ricks twice. i would highly recommend going for the sunset!! and its great for people of all ages if you go during sunset. some of the snorkling trips/ catamaran trips will end the day @ ricks for sunset (its kind of the best of all worlds, you get to see the sunset& cliff divers all from the boat you are on) . I have an 11 yr old son who thought it was the coolest place he has been. He wanted so badly to jump off the cliffs but i wouldnt let him. its really cool there!! good luck.... kg
  3. so here are some more answers to questions.... keep them coming I was so happy with everything!! kg! [/color] Quote: Originally Posted by bosi Okay, now I have several questions ( can you tell I've been just dying to ask these questions?) 1. Where did you have your rehearsal dinner and what was the set up? Just tables set in a circle? What was the food you asked for? It looked scrumptious. **we had the rehersal dinner on the beach it was beautiful!! the food was in a buffet style and was awesome! everyone was super happy w the food, they had a chicken, meat, fish and veggies so something for everyone! Did you have music hooked up? **not for the rehersal dinner 2. Did you have a dance floor at the reception? **we didnt do a big reception, just the cocktail hour w hot appetizers and they brought the bar to the beach . again the food was plenty to fill everyone up. I used the flowers from my the chair aisles for ceter pieces and it worked out great! 3. How much did you have to pay for the flowers on the cake? **i highly suggest waiting until you get there to get the flowers! I too was quoted prices from amber and they were out of control expensive. So i took the same pixs to my wc on site and she ordered the .... the cake topper was $45.00 and i had them decorate the standard cake w the "pearls" on the layers, they didnt charge me extra. I think you have a couple of options for the free cake I just spent an hour with Amber tody and they are charging so much for flowers that are not martha stewart's.The cake is also 2 tiered square and plain , not even with a trim like yours. **we were quoted for flowers.... (this is crazy) my bouquette 450.... paid 220 moh bouquette 350.... paid 100 center pieces/ railing decor 4x 150 each ..... paid 4x 45 each boutineer 50 each ..... paid 30 each And i used the exact same pictures to show the WC on site that i emailed to Amber. Thats over $1000 difference!! 4. Did you have the option of going to the night club- liquid - after the reception? I notice you went to RIcks and was wondering if the night club is lame. **we really wanted to goto Ricks after which was probably not the best choice only because I had grander expectations of what it was going to be like, I assumed it was going to be really busy, fun live reggee music so we rented the 2 private cabanas. well it turned out there was no one there when we arrived, the place was empty (i think they were annoyed we even showed up....) So we spent 900 there on cabana's, drinks and more food and we could have stayed at the resort (it would be the only real regret i have). BUT we did go back the next day for sunset and cliff diving and it was GREAT!! Liquid is ok, its small, im not really a "club" girl but my friends that went had a great time. **dont stress!! the WC on site is awesome, Nickesha Greenfield. I even called her before I went and she is so calming and so great at her job. She makes sure it all happens just perfect!! Thanks. Lots more to come for you and Sherri. Lots of questions but I need answers, I'm so worried!!!
  4. Hey ladies..... I had some answers to some questions that I wanted to post.... Its so hard to sit and write this review!! The arch on the beach did you have to pay for it? that was included with the palm trees too. you can buy flowers for the top of the arch and also pedestals of flowers to replace the palms but i thought that looked nice enough..... What reception did you do? Free one? or did you upgrade? I might confuse you with this so just ask if you don't understand...... Since we booked 12 rooms we were entitled to the free cocktail reception (includes cold o'rderves, champagne toast, cake) but we wanted the bar to be @ the reception and wanted hot food since we were not doing a sit down dinner So we upgraded to the $25 pp cocktail reception.... VERY worth it. everyone ate so much they didn't need a dinner. They set up seats for everyone. Did you get your hair and makeup done at the salon? I did get my hair and make up done, i didnt pay to have the trial done and so did my moh..... I gave my girl an A++++, she had someone different hated her hair and make up, we re-did both (but that can happen anywhere w anyone!) Recently they added the martha stewart designs and now my WC in Miami is saying we get nothing for the sweet beginnings "free wedding". But before the martha stewart collection, we did. So now Im confused. I don't know much about that but I do know if you book more than 12 rooms you get a lot of concession .... make sure you check that info out. Miami can be confusing and put pressure on you.... I did everything once I got there and there was no problem what so ever!! I also think if you book one of the "concierge suites" you receive additional upgrades. Also how was your room? Clean?? our room was awesome. we ended up with a 1bdroom suite, so we had a separate living room & 2 bathrooms..... that was nice because we had space to spread everything out and weren't tripping over each other for the week.... i would highly recommend doing things there.... for example i was quoted $400 for my bouquet from Miami so i ordered it once i was at the resort and it was $250. At least at the Beaches Negril they were so laid back and she took care of everything!! And again you all can email me if you have more questions!! i would love to help especially since there is very little info on here about beaches. I am going to post the answers to any question also so that the info starts to build!!!!

Just one question so far...what time was your ceremony? our cermony was supposed to be @ 3pm. I originally wanted the 5:30 sunset but then canceled and booked the 3pm slot. BUT..... we were there the time of year that it rains in the afternoon SO I got really lucky and was able to have my wedding @ 5:30, and didnt pay the $3800!! it was great. And if you guys have questions feel free to email me.... I have 2 kids and we own a company so its hard to get my review written. kgcuviello@yahoo.com
  6. hey everyone. I am back and have a minute to post some pictures from our wedding. I know the pictures been a huge duscussion on here! so i am going to post 2 things 1. the resort photogs site. in all fairness about them, they are decent. They knew upfront that I wasnt going to be buying any pictures from them because I told them i had a photog/friend w me. The WC just asked that our photog be respectful of the resorts photog and that we take some time to take pictures with him. The 2 actually worked well together and there were no problems what so ever. In the long run it benefited the resort because we did end up buying $200 worth of pictures that they took thru out our stay, when my photog was long gone. https://sandals.venuephotos.com/SNS/...e.aspx?sub=168 username is kgcuviello@yahoo.com / password is jamaica 2. now to my photog.... unbeleivable! thats all i can say. she is very open to working with destination brides since she is building her portifilio!! https://www.collages.net/consumersit...password=11351 I am piecing together a review on microsoft word so i will post that soon, hopefully. but in the meantime if anyone has questions about beaches negril please email me.... We had a wonderful experience and I would rate the resort a 100%!!
  7. Maureen, I will be getting married @ Beaches Negril on Oct 3 @ 3pm..... COme visit us if you can and want some pictures of a wedding while you are there.
