    Hi Vaughan, I am also getting married at Rosehall Resort (RHR) and am in the process of planning. My fiance and I stayed at the resort last month when we visited the island and we knew this was the place we would tie the knot. The hotel surroundings are top notch. Do you have a location picked out already? We're getting married at the aqueduct. I can't wait...It's been fun planning so far. Terls

    What time is your ceremony?

    We chose 4:30pm in order to get some photos in before it starts to get dark. Also, we figured it would be cooler then.

    It looks like most of you are married by now. How did your flowers and decor turn out? Which florist did you end up using and were you satisfied?

I learned about Jamaica Elegant Weddings from this forum and contacted them about three months before my wedding date via an online request for information. In no time I got a response from Dawn and my stress free wedding planning began. I look at Dawn as a God-sent. The first time we spoke I explained to her my situation, desires, and budget. In her calm voice she told me it would be "no problem" that she would make my dreams come true. Now I will be honest, for my wedding I wanted it ALL but at a discount price, not a small feat but Dawn not only met the challenge, she rose above it! My wedding reception was more than I could have ever dreamed of. The location, decoration, food, cake, entertainment, EVERYTHING was on point! And although I was not there, from what people told me and the pictures I saw, the cocktail hour set up was gorgeous! Way beyond what I imagined, I'm talking about fruit carvings and everything. Now let me tell you about Dawn...she is the kindness and most professional person I have ever worked with. She's so gentle and reassuring. Tell her exactly what you want and she'll give you that and more. We met the day before my wedding and I handed her a large suitcase with all my wedding stuff; decorations, menus, guest book, escort cards, etc. I even gave her my reception dress which she later helped me get into. She was just there in whatever manner I needed her to be. I HIGHLY recommend her service,you won't be disappointed. Now for Kevan our DJ. He truly is the best in the west. I didn't have any contact with Kevan before the wedding, I simply made a playlist and e-mailed it to Dawn, she passed it on to him and he delivered beautifully! My #1 wish for my wedding was that I and my guests had a blast, for us to party and dance the night away. And that's exactly what we got! My guest told me that they had nevered had so more fun a wedding reception. DJ Kevan stuck to my playlist request and delievered exactly what I wanted. I have no complaints. Let me know if you want any photos. I don't have my professional ones yet but I'll be happy to share some of the ones my guests have sent me. Hi Mrs. Reed, Congrats on the wedding. I too am in a similar position with you regarding Rosehall Resort. I want it ALL, but RHR certainly wants to charge for it ALL as well. I read you review and was wondering if you would share your wedding reception photos with me. cappaccino57@hotmail.com. Were you happy with the food at your reception? Because one of the reasons I chose RHR was that their food was on point. I really enjoyed it every single day I was there. Were you happy with your reception decor? Which florists did Dawn use because I recently came across Tai Flora, and their work looks amazing. Was your reception location far from RHR? I really hope to hear from you soon so that I could make a decision regarding the reception. Congrats again. You seemed to be very pleased with how everything turned out.
  8. Hey Veronica, Thanks so much for sharing that very detailed review. I had no idea you had done so much DIY work. You couldn't even tell from the photos because everything looked so professionally done. You have every right to feel good about your day because it really looked perfect. I don't think I have the patience to do stuff myself, however I know it would probably cut alot of the extra costs for me. Your review filled me with so many wonderful ideas and I thank you for that. Can you let me know if your husband got to try his suit on prior to buying it? From your review it sounds like you made an online purchase which worked out perfectly for him. I look forward to seeing your photos. Terlina

I believe the resort has white and black table clothes at no extra cost, but I believe chair covers are extra. and hey, no worries on th questions...thank goodness we are all here to help each other! oh and an update, I worked out my number of room drama. if we get one more room we'll get the upgraded room at no cost. Hi Tauristar, Tonight I decided to have my wedding at Rose Hall. I have been struggling with this location decision for a very long time, and now that I've got back from a wedding in Jamaica, i've decided to have mine there as well. I stayed at Rose Hall and I thought the resort was amazing. I was definitely there when you had your wedding, but clearly I missed it. Can you send me any info you think will help me along with the planning process as I am just in my initial stages? My email: cappaccino57@hotmail.com I hope your wedding was everything you wished for. Hope to hear from you soon. Terls

She thinks it should only be for the wedding party. My options were fine dining (which only accomodates 40) or set up on the beach which is $850 just for tables and chairs. What is everyone else doing? Congrats Cutedimplestee!!!!!!! I look forward to reading your review. I just decided to have my wedding at Rose Hall as well.

  13. Hey Veronica, thanks for adding me to facebook. I was so happy when you mentioned your dress was by Maggie Sottero. My first choice is by Sottero and Midgley. I can't wait to go try them all. I look forward to reading your review.

VGirl's Wedding Slideshow Hi Vgirl, your pictures are just simply beautiful. Your dress is stunning. I absolutely love it. Who is it by? Your pictures were especially interesting to me as your husband's height compared to yours appears to be the same as my fiance and me. I am planning on having over 70 for my wedding. Which part of MP would you recommend? Your set up looked very well put together. Was that based on your input or the WC's? Did you have to get alot of extras for your decor?

Welcome and Congrats! Thanks very much. Congrats to you as well. I am still trying to familiarize myself with the forum. How are the plans going none the less?
