About A-and-A

  1. Hi Girls, We had both the calypso band and the DJ and I can honestly say don't spend your money on the DJ. The calypso band was awesome, the music is caribbean/reggae style and it just fits much nicer being beside the ocean and listening to live music. Once you're done your reception, you can go to the turtle lounge and have the DJ play whatever you want. After that you can all go to the liquid disco and continue dancing there (the DJ at liquid is awesome). The DJ we had at our reception was playing Kanye West songs at dinner time (don't know what he was thinking LOL) but other than that he was okay. If I had to do everything again I would only hire the calypso band.

Thank you Krys for calming our weather fears, everything you wrote was very well put and very true. I saw a bride in Jamaica get married under a pavilion in the POURING rain last year, and I thought to myself how bad that must have been, but I could tell they made the best of it and enjoyed each other. We just have to keep that in mind just in case! Lauren, great pictures! How hot was it while you were having them done?? Im clearly having a "Im gonna sweat to death" bridal breakdown. haha Sophia what are you doing for music. I think Brandy had mentioned before she felt like it would have been too quiet without the band and I for sure don't want that. I am willing to hire one, I just dont know if I should do a DJ or the band, or just keep it with IPOD music.
  2. Np, glad to help that's a good quote, I actually paid $350. You don't have to go anywhere, she'll come to your room. She just needs your room number and when she gets there, you or someone from your party goes and gets her from the lobby. She'll bring a style book which you can go thru and pick what you like if you don't have anything in mind already...She does a great job and listens too, if there is something you don't like she'll work with you to make you happy.
  3. Thank you viclee1117, Our ceremony was at 1:00 pm and we took some pictures right after with the Beaches photographer and we met Ileana at 4:30 and were back at the resort by 6:45 and our reception was at 7:00 pm....I did the trash the dress that day since I had two dresses and I just changed to the other one when we got back before the reception.
  4. Hi Michelle-2, Thank you so much!! You will absolutely LOVE your pictures. We left everything up to Ileana since she knows the island much better than us and she kept coming up with brilliant ideas but I'm sure if there is a place that you love to have your pictures at, she would gladly go for it. Unfortunately, we don't have any of the pictures that were taken by the beaches photographer yet! They're suppose to send them to us. Will put them up as soon I get them. To be honest there are not that different from other pictures that our friends and family took from us, maybe a couple of nice ones but the rest were average.
  5. Hi Girls, We just got back last night.. Just wanted to let you know that everything was absolutely amazing. They do a FANTASTIC job… We had our ceremony on the beach and reception at the adult Jacuzzi area (breathtaking view specially at sunset)…. Our theme was chic and natural which we were very happy with, but not matter what you choose it’s going to be BEAUTIFUL. We had one hour cocktail and hor’derves with a calypso band (they were awesome) and 2 hour reception with the DJ, the food was hands down the best wedding food we’ve ever had….We had the resort’s photography package (not that impressed) but the best decision we’ve ever made was to go with Ileana from Tropical Imaging… It’s worth every penny… You will not regret spending the money. She’s an amazing artist and so much fun to work with, here is a link to some of our pictures on the brilliant blog.. http://www.brilliant.tc/2011/05/persian-princess-english-gentlemen/ Overall, you will not be disappointed. The staff are amazing, really helpful and great fun. The island and the resort is beautiful and as for the food and the restaurants, simply the best. Let me know if you have any specific questions and I’ll gladly help… J

We get there on Sunday around noon and the plan is to meet everyone in our room to have a toast and give them the loot bags and off we go on a bar hopping tour. (get to know the resort) Monday : drinking game day (twister, kings,…), the purpose is to get everyone drunk enough so they can’t drink as much on Tuesday (the day before the wedding) we have a crazy group…everyone loves to drink and party..hahaha Tuesday : relaxing day (everyone should be hangover) Wednesday : wedding day…. The ceremony is on the beach @ 1:00 pm (chic and natural). I’m doing my makeup and hair with Shenique.

I’ve bought 2 dresses (they’re not wedding dresses, simple bridesmaid dress in ivory) so I can trash one crazy I know !!! We’ll be back at the resort by 6:30 -7 and the plan is to have a cocktail hour with the calypso band and then 2 hour duo plated dinner reception with the DJ. Here is the menu and it’s $75 pp. A Touch of the Tropics Plated Dinner Duo Minimum 8 guests – Based on 2 Hours of service Bride and Groom must make menu selections during Planning prior to arrival Offered between the hours of 4pm to 9pm Beer, Wine, Spirits and Soft Drinks Appetizer Please select ONE of the following Island Potato Soup with Salt cod and Chorizo Select Green Leaf Salad With Mandarins, Toasted Almonds and Sherry Vinaigrette Pepper Crusted Beef Carpaccio With Olive Salad, Toast Points and Garlic Aioli Island Crab Cakes On a Spicy Fruit Salsa Entrée Please select ONE of the following Lobster Crusted Salmon Fillet with Herb Grilled Filet Mignon Duo With Garlic Herbed Mash and Champagne Butter Sauce ~or~ Grilled Chicken Breast and Shrimp Duo With a Soft Whipped Polenta and Burgundy Jus All of the above entrees served with Market Fresh Vegetables Dessert Please select ONE of the following Chocolate Truffle Cake with Raspberry Fruit Coulis Fresh Caribbean Fruit Cheesecake with Rum Sauce and Honey Tuille Pineapple Baked Alaska Freshly Baked Bread Rolls and Butter Tea and Coffee I'm assuming the dinner would be about an hour and the rest we can dance and party and god knows where we’ll end up after that… Thursday : relaxing day.
