  1. I used Majestic tours....Christine was wonderful to work with and quick to respond!! Made it very easy and the vehicles were very nice as were the drivers. I rented buses (mini coach) to pick/return everyone at the airport and to transport to different venues. majtours@candw.ky
  2. We had a steel drum player for the ceremony and a band for the reception and yes there is room for dancing. Mainstream was the band and had everyone up and dancing...very good time! We did not have any privacy issues.......everyone cheered from the beach and balcony when we got married (which was not invasive in any way....kinda cute!) No one bothered us during our reception......Marina does a great job! Can't express how grateful I am to her for everything she did. Over a above what I expected!
  3. Sorry........we planned on the Turtle pool just like my profile picture. It was beautiful at night. The Turtle pool is just outside of Hemingways. We had cocktails and appetizers on Hemingways patio deck while my husband and I were taking pictures. Small area. But looks right out onto the beach. I went up on the rooftop and looked, it was big.....never saw it decorated but I am sure Marina would make it beautiful. How many people are you having?
  4. THere were 30 of us. We had the recepiton set up on the Terrace but it rained and we had to move indoors.....Marina did an exceptional job at moving and getting everything set up again. I recommend on the Terrace.....looked beautiful with the lights still strung up even though we were inside for a bit.....we hung out on the terrace after the rain stopped.
  5. I forgot to add.......if getting a photographer....make sure to book known photog on island.....NOT the junior associates they send!!! Our pictures were terrible......out of 900 photos that we paid over 4500 for, only 50 were useable. Amy was our photographers name.
  6. Here is the link for the map. http://www.funmapsusa.com/uploaded_images/caymanIslandsmap-743257.jpg A hand drawn maps sounds awesome....I would love to see it when it is done.
  7. You are welcome.......I just did it all a few months ago so if anyone has any questions feel free to ask. And yes the shipping was relatively easy just make sure you go online and get the appropriate international shipping documents printed and filled out, it will speed up the process at Fed Ex. Oh yeah, also was told by my wc that FED EX better than UPS.....so that is what I did. Fed ex. Everyone was super excited to get our bags.....were used and seen on the beach while we were there...it was a backpack type. I put welcome letter and the map show here..... Here is picture of our koozies and M&M'
  8. Give yourself plenty of time....it has to pass through customs....unless you ship international priority...then it will amazingly get there in two days......we waited until two weeks prior and was told that if we didn't ship priority it could get held up at customs.... I called Fed Ex in Grand Cayman and they suggested that: if you ship priority-they view it as a priority and get it through customs fast....it is less expensive to ship international normal but not sure how long that would take to get through customs. PS-I put a detailed list of the contents and put in the two boxes I shipped and I had no problems. Make sure you indicate everything in the boxes and they won't be held up at customs. Also, indicate they are personal items for wedding.
  9. Hi guys since I did the shipping via fed ex, thought I would share my experience. I have to say it was expensive but a great move because with carrying our wedding attire and suitcases and toasting flutes and shoes and other wedding attire items etc for wedding adding the welcome bags would have been even more stressful than it was already since plane didn't have a closet for our stuff..We had to ask people to move their luggage to put my dress overhead.........so plan accordingly......but ask nicely and people will gladly help you!! .......I shipped our bags and it cost over $800.00 because I shipped 30 welcome bags, sign in platter, sand and sea favor bottles, programs, name place setting tags (ceramic), wedding cake style cookies for place setting, etc Our bags had: Koozie (palm trees and our wedding date), Personalized M&M's (faces, date and GC on them), Chip ahoy cookies, Peanuts, bread sticks, pretzels, sewing kit, sunscreen, lysol spray, shout wipe, first aid kit (Pepto bismol, advil, bandaids, neosporin), mini rum cake, voucher for breakfast buffet at Hemingways You can order a case of the Tortuga mini rum cakes for about 1.50 CI per cake. There are 60 per case I think.
  10. Hemingways Patio is directly behind us.......just to give you visual of what it looks like.....
  11. Laura: Our rehearsal dinner was at Regazzi and Reception at Hemingways in June. Since you are having your Reception at Luca I would suggest Hemingways. Food was delicious and the patio is beautiful. Interior is quite nice as well if you decide to eat inside. Regazzi was good also but Italian and similar to Luca but definitely not as good as Luca!!! Best wishes!!! Cyndi
  12. Thanks!!! Feel free to ask as much as you want......still very fresh and vivid in my mind. LOVED every minute of it. Arthur Henriquez, Marriage Officer his email is:jurehen@candw.ky Super nice and very helpful. Send vows for us to review and to add or change. We did sand ceremony also and total time was 15 minutes......which doesn't seem like long but believe me in the sun.......feels longer, but would do all over again and not change a thing. I also suggest going to the Registar office before you leave and get two more certified copies of the Marriage Certificate for filing purposes at home. The office is right in Georgetown and took 10 minutes to get certified copies. Michael Lemay the steel drum player was awesome!!! Sounded great and so appropriate for setting. Spatogo. Helen is the owner and did make up and Heather her assistant did my hair. Bot came to my hotel, in my room. They did 5 peoples hair and make up, manicures too. You can use me as referral if you wish. They were super. GREAT JOB. Very natural and better than I ever expected without never meeting them before. Updo's CI$90 blowdrys CI$60 make up CI$70 manicure CI$35 go to website and look under weddings www.spa2go@candw.ky email:spa2go@candw.ky Definitely reccomend them. You can use me Flowers and decor by Celebrations. Food Hemingways. Band Mainstream.....jazz reggae you can find them on the web. They had our family members up and dancing and doing the conga!! It was so fun to watch everyone having such a great time. I can't think of any other details but if you have any other specific questions feel free to ask.
  13. Amy from Picture This...works for Rebecca. Awesome to work with. She was wonderful.
  14. Arrived two days before the wedding and stayed 10 days after. Total 13 days. Had our rehearsal Dinner at Regazzi...it was very very good. Best dinners we had were at: Eduardos, Regazzi, Hemingways, The Wharf, CasaNova's, Yoshi Sushi, 7 Prime cuts and sunset at the Ritz (awesome-tell them you are on honeymoon and you will get special dessert), Morgans Harbor and a few others.......don't waste your time at The Lobster Pot, very overated. Cimboco had good breakfasts as did Eats Cafe. Sunshine grill has good burgers and fish tacos. Captain Marvin is the best snorkeling/stingray excursions. Dolphin cove better than the dolphins by the turtle farm. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Will post pictures when get back from photog.
