Question: welcome dinner... is that something included in the wedding packages? Or is that something extra you have to pay for for the resort to organize the tables and such for you at the buffet?

Your wedding looked beautiful!  Thank you for posting your review. Welcome back!

 

I am a vegetarian as well, as are a few people in my group.  When you pre- chose your dinner entrees, did you get to pick 2 "meat" choices and was the vegetarian one available for the people that wanted it?  I would like to give my guests 2  non veggie options to choose from....  

 

thanks in advance!

I had heard of other brides doing a welcome dinner so i asked Eugenia about it a few months before we left. She said it was no problem and arranged it for us at no charge.

The bus to Coco Bongo took 30-45 minutes i think. We left at 9:30 and were inside and seated by 10:30ish. There were about 10 people from our resort and we also stopped at the Gran Sierens to pick up a few people. The bus was pretty empty. I'm not sure if on busier nights they would stop at more resorts or not. There is usually a Coco Bongo rep hanging around the pool that you can ask questions and book from.

Hey, yea we picked 2 meat options and i told her that myself and another guest were vegetarians. When we met with her before the wedding she had this noted (and specifically that the Bride was vegetarian). We didn't know ahead of time what the vegetarian option would be though. During our dinner the waiters went out of their way to ask us if the vegetarian option (pasta) was okay. They originally were planning on giving us linquini, which I vetoed as i thought it would end up all over my face! So they gave us a less messy noodle instead! If you know sort of what you want i'm sure you could request it. The Frutos Del Mar restaurant is attached to the Italian restaurant so it was easy for them to bring over some pasta.

For brides that had their dinner in the a-la-carte restaurants, did you guys make any of your speeches there? If so, were there mics provided for you guys to use? And were you introduced to the rest of the party in any way?

Hi!

Thanks for answering my question.  We are staying at the Coba (but getting married at the Akumal side) so we chose the Mediterranno restaurant.  On the menu, there is an awesome veggie option (vegetable caponata) that I would be very happy with.  So...hopefully we can pick 2 meat options and the vegetarians can have the veggie option!

    • 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.
