  1. We had round tables at ours, but a rectangle for head table. We choose to do a seating plan as it saves time and gets guest seated promptly.. when you only have a few hours or so ever minute counts! We just had it set up with tables, and then told people what table they should sit at.. at which point the picked there own seat at that table. Made things flow quickly.
  2. Julia, I went in looking for a 'destination wedding' style dress in mind... and I ended up getting something completely different. Not saying that will happen to you, but I wouldn't base where I would look strictly on that. I went to two places (in one day) and found my dress. Ritche Bridal - TONS of dresses, all styles and designers. They had pretty much ever dress I asked about. Beckers Bridal - Not quite as vast a selection as Ritche, but some other names, and their own designer name... ended up getting my dress here. They give a 10% off if you get alterations done elsewhere.. though I opted to get them done there and I'm glad I did as Rosa was a miracle worker. Both places I found I had good service .. not pushy at all. Piece of advise though...no matter where you go, book on a week day if at all possible. I booked a Monday.. I had both places to myself! Good luck! k
  3. Blue Moon Bar. .. was hoping it would open at 8:30 but when we went, they told use not until 10:30. I dont know if it was a one off thing or what. This is also where we ended up having you after dinner reception. It was closed off to the public until 10:30.
  4. Be prepared with a backup plan if any of your events are outside.. I wasn't .. which for me is odd as Im usually on top of stuff.. but I figured it would have been perfect weather.. it was not. So.. that said, the day of was a bit chaotic. I have to go back through the pictures and videos as I don't even remember certain things! Also. Be flexible and don't worry about not having everything ironed out beforehand .. .honestly. .they told me I had appointment for the spa.. they didn't.. but they accommodated me on the spot... I was told that a bar would be open as I was planning on having a welcome party there.. it wasn’t.. had to make a last second change.. asked for rehearsal dinner reservations weeks before..they ended up making it.. the day before.. Just go with the flow, relax and things will work out...
  5. Can't comment on it on getting a Catholic priest to the resort.. but if its to be a true Catholic ceremony, does it not have to be in a Church? My Catholic friends all had to get married in a church to follow the church's strict guidelines. If you can't find one that will do it, you may want to get married at home in the church, then have a 'renewal' on the beach?
  6. I should also say.. I dont even thing the final details thing matters.. as they just sit down and ask you all the questions again once you get there... but yeah, it is frustrating... but don't worry.. it will all get ironed out in time.
  7. Same thing happened to me. About 20 days out I emailed them and was like.. hello?!? and they responded almost right away to get everything in order.. it only took a few emails back and forth and was settled in 24 horus.. so no worries.. it will get done, but I would advise emailing them at this point.
  8. I just had my wedding and wore Allure 8915. While it’s not a true mermaid to trumpet, it is a drop waste and is fitted tight. I left a little room in the hips, butt but I will say that sitting was a little challenge. I had to maneuver around to get comfortable and I couldn't really bend (Also because of the boning). Posing for pictures was a little challenging as well. So I can’t say for sure with your dress.. but I think you may not want it as tight as it can go… though… again.. its only for a few hours! All depends on if you want look, or comfort

  10. I had a meeting with the WC on Monday and I asked them what time it was to open as I was looking for a spot to do a Welcome Party. She said it opened at 8:30. We went.. I was told it does not open until 10:30 so we moved to the lobby bar. Throughout the week, that's what it seemed was the norm. The Catarmaran was $82.50 US Per Adult all in. (includes transportation, snorkel use, open bar, tax) We went from 3-6. There is a sunset cruise which is later but shorter and no snorkel. The sun was setting as we docked..which was awesome.. but it wasn't fully set yet.
  11. We used http://weddingbellesjamaica.com/ . I was in contact Jo-Anne. She was fantastic. She did up gift bags for us which where delivered to the hotel. There was a bunch of stuff you could select from (rum, sauces, coffee, etc) In regards to sky lanterns.. I didn't have them myself, but I have used them.. you need two people at least to set them off.. (one needs to hold while the other lights it) so one per couple is more then enough.
  12. Lessons learned... not really.. but I would suggest to really just have the mentality of just going with the flow... if things dont work out as planned due to uncontrollable circumstances to just breath.. and let things take its course (ie.. wedding coordinators scrambling to make things work out.. ahahah) Oh.. though, I will say one thing. I hired Misha Earle for pictures on the wedding day. She is awesome.. Big personality and professional. However, due to the weather all my pictures where inside for the most part. .. so a few days later I decided to hire digipix at the resort to do a photoshoot back in my dress on the beach. The guy was really nice, and did some great poses. I was really excited to see the pictures.. when I did.. I almost cried. .. they where terrible.. 80% where out of focus (I dont know if he just had the wrong setting or what... the camera he used was bottom of the barrel kit SLR). I ended up paying $315 for 40 photos that where mediocre at best. I should have gotten Misha to come back... kicking myself for that now. I didn't bring much.. just a few things (guest book, fans, table numbers) as I couldn't be bothered dealing with that.. I had stuff delivered to the hotel from local vendors instead.. best money spent.
  13. Yes. I will post a full review as soon as I can.
  14. Hello Everyone! I just got back from a weeks stay at the Grand, but got Married at the Suites. I can say that nothing worked out as planned (due to a horrible weather system) which was disappointing, but everything did work out. I have to give a shout out to Nicole and Tiffany for pulling it all together on the fly (literally) and making it go as smoothly as possible. If anyone has any specific question I would be glad to try and answer.
  15. Awesome. That's what I was hoping/thinking. Thanks!
