Good to hear. I was worried we'd have to bring our own and honestly, we've got enough crap to cart to Jamaica that I think I'd prefer to drink out of plastic cups than to haul some fragile crystal thousands of kms!

Was there anything you wish you would have brought or that you brought but found out the resort provided?

I cant really think of anything actually! The one thing I guess I would have liked to have done was bring some sort of seating arrangement or place cards for the wedding dinner, as there was just a bit of confusion as to where the parents should sit. But other than that, I think I brought everything "personal" for the wedding and the resort provided everything else.

Was it extra to get your hair done in your room instead of in the salon? I always have to sit under the dryer FOREVER when I get my hair done so i'm wondering how they would do it in my room.

 

Also, I noticed in one pic that your BM had a baby with her in the disco. Was that during your private time at the Disco? I have a BM who is bringing her 1 1/2 year old and we have been trying to figure out what we would do with her during the reception b/c no one wants to miss all the fun!

 

Thanks for the great reveiw and all the pics, everything looks perfect! I'm so jealous about the room upgrade! The resort is completely booked during our wedding stay so I'm not counting on an upgrade

I dont think there was an extra charge to have the hair done in my room! I had requested it in advance with the Renova Spa by email and I paid 50% deposit online. If you need a big hair dryer I am not sure how that would happen in the room either... we all started with our hair dry!
Yes, my MOH brought her 8 week old baby along!! And the baby LOVED Jamaica! He was so happy with the sunshine! And another friend brought her 1 1/2 year old along as well. Both were in the disco during our private booking time, I had asked Chandlyn in advance if kids were allowed in their during the private booking and she said "No problem!" The 1 1/2 year old had a blast dancing with everyone, so I would definitely recommend that as an option for you!

Jmhein, I have a question for you.

I was wandering where did you get your fans? I looked on different site that deliver in Canada but the shipping is more expensive then the fans. I looked on weddingfavorites and asiansideas for the fans and weddingfavors for the stickers.

Thanks

Have you tried Oriental Trading? I don't know if they deliver to Canada but the fans are super cheap from them

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
