I bought the heart shaped sand ceremony kit from Angelic weddings.com  with one extra vase as there are 4 in our family. Me and Joe and our 2 children. One of the vases did have a slight crack but otherwise transported in the box all the way from U.K pretty well and I could not tell on the pics one of the vases had a slight crack. I left it wrapped up in the box and wrapped beach towels all the way around it and put it in suitcase marked "FRAGILE"  To transport back, unfortunately our flower girl had got hold of it and poured ithe sand on her dress, so the sand got a bit mixed up. It was just a little blip bt to transport home we stuffed the top with tissue and wrapped in a carrier bag in the "fragile" suitcase and it was fine, upon arriving home :))) 

We did not get our documents translated before we went, it does feel strange that we are married and we have to wait to change name, without our certificate.

 

Any more question's and I'm here xxx

No Rachel. Link does not work. I have found you on FB but your pics are private. I think you can change the privacy on just that album so we can see your wedding pics but all your other info and pics stay private.

Does anyone know the price of the coco bongo tickets bought through the hotel? Just been on the coco bongo website and it says it is $50 per person. Just wondered whether we are better off getting them direct or through the hotel with the transport.

Per a review on Trip Advisor... it is $80 for a van round trip and admission... however she said she talked them down to $60 per person because there was four of them.  BUT... that was 2009.  But I'd expect a price similar to that.

i was just there in Jan and it was $65 per person including the transportaion there and back. if you pay $100 you get the Vip area (way better seating) hope this helps!

Hi,

 

I am from UK and have booked with Thomas Cook and they tell me I need docs translating but my WC at the hotel has said this is not required. I have asked many UK brides on here and they back this up and have also checked the net and I think the confusion comes because the requirements are different depending on the state where the ceremony is taking place. Neither of us have been married before, changed our names or are adopted though. I think the requirements are different if you have done any of these things as you have. I do not know the exact requirements but I am sure your WC should be able to give you the correct info.

I didn't bring any place cards with me, I also didn't make a seating plan either. When we met with Jazmin she gave me 3 different coloured highlights, I used each colour as a table (only 3 tables) to tell her who should sit at each table.  She then made up on big card for the center of each table with the names of people for that table.  They were cute, all done in pink (our wedding colour) with a pictures of a bride and groom.

    • 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!

    • 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.
