  Hi Ladies,

  I just got back last Saturday from my wedding/honeymoon (wedding was Feb 21st) thought I share a few things with you :)   The resort grounds are beautiful, perfect place for a wedding! I got married in the gazebo at 4pm and had cocktail hour and reception on the Himitsu terrace untill 11pm. I also had flowers from the resort which were beautiful as well!     gazebo.jpg     Flowers.jpg     The resort was 110% full on the week of our wedding, they tried to “upgrade†9 of our 30 guest to the Hard Rock… As well, the rooms are SMALL! We had a swim out room, we wanted to upgrade to a Honeymoon suite as we werenâ€t happy with our room, we were even willing to pay whatever price, but they said they had no rooms at all!  The swim out turned out to be fun, but it was a lot smaller than any other all inclusive resort rooms Iâ€ve been in.   The beach is awesome here!! Trying to find a chair or a towel after 9am was pretty much impossible which was probably due the resort being 110% book. This is where our swim out room came in handy :)   Beach.jpg   Our photographer was Michael Weiler with Caribbean Emotions, he was amazing, and such a good price. We also had 36 printed photos of the ceremony with the resort photographer they wanted 180$ for 36 images on CD, (and that they said was half price!!!)   I wasnâ€t planning on doing a TTD but a week after the wedding, my Mom talked me into it! I called up Michael and he was able to do one with us!! It was amazing, he took us off resort to a beautiful beach and the pictures turned out amazing!    TTD1.jpg   TTD2.jpg     Let me know if you ladies have any questions :)

Sherri yours pictures look awesome and your Mugs look super familiar.. I saw you on one of the days you were there, I think maybe the friday, your group was sitting behind my group at the pool.  I was down there from the 13th-20th and got married on the 17th (the one day it rained all evening : ( .)

 

I hear you about the towels it was next to impossible some days to get a towel.

Hi Sherri,  your pictures are amazing, you look beautiful!  I was wondering if you have any pictures of your reception.  Our wedding is scheduled for May 21st at 4:30 with our dinner and cocktail hour on the Himitsu Terrace.  It also looks like we're expecting around the same number of guests you had, so I'm just curious to see what the set up looks like.  Also, how do they do the cocktail hour?  Is everything in the same space as the dinner, or do they do the cocktail hour on one part of the terrace and the dinner on another part?

 

Thanks!!

Yes, they are all booking on their own, we are just keeping on top of vacation packages that we find and inform the ones who haven't booked yet.

 

As for the 6th room free, not sure what that is. I get a free upgrade with my wedding package..... Can you tell me more abut the 6th room free?

Thanks

 Kwaller82 - I do have some pics of the reception but I don't know how well they show the set up. Let me know your email address and I'll send you some. Cocktail hour was in the same area as the dinner, people were just kinda standing around when I got there after cocktail hour was done.

Hi has anyone on here had a catholic ceremony?

if so can you pm me I have some questions.

 

- is there a rule that the groom has to walk up the aisle right before the bride walks up coz we saw our priest here in canada and he told me that

  this is what the catholic church has to do.  apparently the groom cannot stand at the alter like we've always seen before, he has to walk up with 

  his parents right before the brides walk???? this really threw me off.....lol

- also did you do a first reading, responsorial psalm and a second reading, and lastly a "lord hear our pray"??

- did you play a song while he was getting the bread and wine ready? and did you play a song while he was giving out communion? where u allowed  to play a songs i mean??

- then lastly we want to say our own vows but also we would like to repeat the traditional vows after the priest and then play our recessional song in the 

end

-also did you have to sign the register while the priest was there?? and what about the uniting of the candles or combining the sand when or did you do this........

 

sorry lots of questions for you catholic brides but i would love some help with this as Im very organized and I dont want any surprises the day off

coz apparently there is no rehearsal and the first time i see the preist will be when i walk up the aisle??????

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!  
    • Visit Jamaica and check out Montego Bay Photographer for your family vacation or Destination Wedding photography!!! https://www.montegobayphotographer.com
    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
