  1. @@JamaicaNicole.......I live in Delaware (transplant from Philly) and Philadelphia airport is closer to me but I decided to drive to BWI because of the direct southwest flights. Also, the flights are cheaper out of BWI. I have never heard of any airlines waiving fees for any reason. The baggage fees are their money maker. I would see if it is worth it to you to fly out of BWI.
  2. @@NG1515.....I had a similar situation happen with the Royalton White Sands in Jamaica......I ultimately searched for another resort in the area and moved my wedding to the other resort. And this happened in May of this year, my wedding is in 4 weeks. I had to have my travel agent move all of the reservations to the new resort. Luckily, the room rates were the same and my guests did not have to pay more. I sent out wedding update cards with the new location and an explanation on the back. It was a lot of work but my travel agent was the greatest. I did request a refund from the Royalton White Sands and they did honor it since it was their mistake, I had verification of my locations for the ceremony and receptions which they booked another wedding at the same time. I am so sorry you are going through this and I definitely understand the stress that it causes. I hope you are able to get this resolved. If you need any advice, feel free to message me.
  3. @@malyna.....I like the first and the last as well. I actually bought the first ones and I am wearing them with my reception dress. They are really comfortable.

  5. Hi everyone....I am getting married October 10th.......I can't believe it is finally almost here. It has been a journey. I keep saying I am going to do a planning thread but I just haven't had the time. So here is a little something....... How we met: Today is actually the anniversary of when my fiancé and I met 4 years ago. I actually had broken up with my ex about 6 weeks before this and I wasn't looking for another relationship. I was ready to be single and mingle.....however, I went out with one of my best friends and my fiancé (Ty) happened to be there. (My girlfriend and Ty actually have mutual friends). We have been together ever since. Engagement: We were engaged July 28th, 2013 in Cancun Mexico.....we were there for a friends wedding. He proposed in front of everyone during brunch. I was surprised because he gave a speech about how much he loved me in front of everyone. (He is not a big talker so that made it really sweet that he came out of his comfort zone). Date: We didn't set a date right away. We actually waited a year and then set the date in June of last year. We originally booked at the Royalton White Sands.....I was really excited as I had done a site visit there. However, earlier this year, I found out that they did not honor my requests for reception locations etc so I decided to move the wedding. We are now getting married at the Jewel Paradise Cove Resort and Spa. It is an adult only resort. The dress: Well, I am very indecisive.....I have bought and returned 5 dresses to David's bridal. And I still wasn't happy.....I ended up going to a Bridal boutique not far from my home and they had a discontinued Allure Couture gown that absolutely loved and it zipped right up as if it were made for me. I would post pictures however, my computer is not allowing me to modify the pics. But I will post them with my iphone after I finish this. I now have to sell my David's bridal dress. What a headache! I have made bouquets for myself and my MOH. I have decided not to do the OOT bags (I don't want to take all of that stuff with me), so I am doing "Fly Away" gift boxes that I will send to each guest/couple with the wedding brochure and the their itinerary. Basically, everything is complete. I am just counting down the days!!!! Dresses Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Bouquets Mine with the jewels is a work in progress!

  6. @@helenk.....hey lady.....first, I am so sorry to hear about your mother passing. Many condolences. Congratulations on the baby!!!! That is so exciting. I am in the same boat with people booking last minute. I have my fiancé's sister who is just booking this week. And one of my girlfriends who is searching for a groupon to go....lol! I have 35 days till we leave and I am just finishing up the favors and the brochure. I decided not to do welcome/oot bags and I am sending everyone "fly away" gift boxes prior to everyone leaving......it will include everything in the OOT bags but I won't have to take all of that with me. I have too much already with the bouquets and the other decorations!!! Congratulations again and everything will turn out just fine!!!!
  7. @@Mpitarresi......I am getting married in Jamaica. Negril has a more rustic feel and is wonderful with the cliffs. I am getting married at Jewel Paradise Cove which is a smaller, adult only resort that has that rustic feel as well. There are some beautiful smaller intimate resorts and some villas that you can rent to have a beautiful wedding. I second @@acw271011....a good travel agent will guide you in the right direction. I was originally scheduled to marry at the Royalton White Sands, after a failure to honor agreed upon reservations, I had to change resorts. My travel agent was able to help me get a new resort and move all of my guests. Good luck in planning!!!!
  8. @@SashJAbride.....:Hi I am getting married at the Jewel Paradise Cove which is the sister resort to the Jewel Runaway Bay. Please tell me how it has been working with the wedding planners. I have been using the U.S. stateside planner. Have you been contacted by the wedding planner in Jamaica yet? Wondering how attentive they are? Thank you, Letitia
  9. @@pddcmc.....gorgeous pictures. You had a wonderful photographer. And you had a beautiful wedding. I am now counting down the days. 113 days to go!!! :)
  10. @@dathotgal.....congratulations on setting your date!!! Have you decided on a resort? I am getting married not far from Ocho Rios in Runaway Bay.
  11. I think because I was so upset that they agreed to letting me go and giving a refund. They know they screwed up. I think I would be more upset if I wouldn't have been able to find another resort in such a short time. I was really upset on Friday because I had no idea what to do. All I could think about were the guests who had booked. It took my TA until today to get everyone moved to the new resort. My fiancé was very angry. It has taught me a lesson to double check. And double check again!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi everyone......I just want to give everyone a heads up with the Royalton. I originally booked my wedding with them in June 2014. I recently contacted the wedding planners to make sure we were on track for my wedding in Oct. I also inquired about the Skylight terrace because my guest count is low and thought possibly I could have the reception there instead of the pool area. (Skylight terrace building is now torn down to make room for the Hideaway at Royalton that is being built). I received an email on Friday, stating that the planner had to verify that the pool area was available for my reception. I asked why as I had booked it June 2014. To make a long story short, they never documented my reception location (even though there was an email) and they now have another bride booked for my reception location. Again, I booked this in June 2014. The person whom was in charge of my wedding is no longer there which tells me that maybe she was not the best employee. So on Monday and Tuesday of this week, I have been searching for another resort to hold my wedding and reception. God was looking out for me as I found Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort and Spa, which had my date and time available. In addition, they are an adult only resort and offer free excursions in their packages. My travel agent is currently rebooking all of my guests at the new resort. What a mess!!!!!! So please when working with Royalton, double check and then double check again!!!!! In addition, my travel agent was having a hard time getting an upgraded booking for one of my guests. Royalton was not very responsive in getting the room category booked properly. This is such a disappointment!!!!! However, things happen for a reason!
  13. @@KG1990......Congratulations and welcome to the site. You will find great info here. Secrets was my first choice of resorts, however, we invited guests with children. Later on found out that the guests with children would not be attending and my date was booked at Secrets!!! However, I have toured Secrets twice and it is a lovely resort. You will have a beautiful wedding. Again, congrats!
