Hi Ladies,

Some of you were talking about ordering dresses online, earlier in the thread. Just wanted to reoprt that I recieved my bridesmaid's dresses from dressforlessbridal.com, and I couldn't be happier. They are the really dress designer (or at least have the same quality) and Tony the owner of the store was so great. He calls you to let you know he recieved the order, and calls you again to let your know when they ship. He was so helpful. It really puts your mind at ease when you are ordering from a website. Much, better than houseofbrides.com

Hello everyone,

 

I am getting married at the Tulum Beach in May 2011.  I was just wondering if anybody has the bouquet/boutonniere catalogue.  Also, we're having a private poolside reception and wondering if anybody has any information about the decorations/centerpieces that are provided for the dinner.  I do have some ideas of my own centerpieces but just wanted to know what is already available at the resort.

 

Thanks and happy planning everybody!

Hey! I got married November 18th last year and still havent received it yet...its been just over two months now though but I was hoping to get it sooner than 3 months. I figure maybe they tell you three just to be safe so that you arent bugging them for it. Now I'm getting worried since you didnt receive yours within the three months! Hope it shows up soon!

This is starting to stress me out!

We booked through a group Air Transat Royal Golden section in the Akumal and it was about $1560 per person. We stayed two weeks and it was about $2200 Canadian.

I have decided on this resort for my wedding!  I am very excited!  Wedding to be July 2012....

 

For those of you who were married here - can I ask what the avg cost per guest was?  Red tag has some offers at 800pp plus taxes, but also says about 1700 pp plus tax!!! 

 

My family is by no means well off! and I mean, I much prefer the cost of 800 pp!!!

 

 

What were you averaging the cost out for people?

 

 

Would be much appreciated!  Thanks <3


Hi there,

Are you talking $ or £?

We have just booked for November 2011 and the cost for 2 sharing was £2246 for 2 weeks with first choice!!

Hello -

 

We are in the final selection stages and are waiting for costs and was wondering - it is worth going through the travel agent to have the deal with the guest bookings or did many of you go direct through say West Jet Vacations or iTravel 2000 type of booking agency?

 

Let me know - we have also been tasked with trying to keep the costs down so any insight would be appreciated!

Hi- I was also told that it is 90$ per person per outside vendor...

Maybe they just decided to become uniform in this decision???? How confusing!

I wouldn't be freaking out so much if Eugenia would at least respond back to my emails and reassure me that it will be sent.

Hi,

 

We chose Frutos del Mar which is right by the pool and beach.  We chose teh chicekn supreme as our main.  Being a chef myself, I was sceptical but honestly it was very well done.  The plate presentation was beautiful.  Instead of having dessert we opted for another tier on our tres leches cake.  Everyone was vey happy with the dinner.

 thank you so much for your response, so as I understand you are allowed to choose only one entree? What about the table decorations and set up? Do they locate the wedding party separated from all other hotel guests? I would love to hear about all little details :) Thanks again!

    • 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.
