That's really good advice actually.  We were struggling with whether or not to do the welcome supper, but with the size of our group we thought it was necessary to ensure that we saw people sometime before the wedding.  We're trying not to book the whole week before we get there.

Does anyone have any advice on gift bags, and how to get them to everyone's rooms?  I don't mind delivering them myself but I don't know if I'll be able to.  I heard somewhere $3 per bag to deliver by the hotel, but Id rather not pay that if I don't have to.  Thx!!!

We made plans for a time to meet everyone for dinner at the buffet the first night and brought the bags with us, we got almost everyone, and the rest we saw at Breakfast.  We only had 31 people though, if you had 70 - it might be trickier!

 

I had wanted a welcome dinner, but my WC never got back to me.  The day of she asked if I still wanted the reservation at the french restaurant. She hadn't confirmed beforehand, so I didn't have a chance to tell people. Since I didn't think there was any way I'd find everyone (plus we had already made other dinner plans) I cancelled it.  There was no extra charge for 31 people.

Hello ladies!  I am new to the forum so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.  Who or where should I contact to start gathering information such as package prices and available dates and such...?  Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Ladies!

 

I just posted my planning/post wedding thread, so I have more info and pictures about the ceremony and reception and such.  Might help to answer some more questions.

My travel agent made the first contact with the resort for us.  Otherwise I think you could probably email them directly?

I used a travel agent as well, and she's been a HUGE help!!  I ended up going with Wendy Hicks of wright travel agency, the agency that's recommended on this site, as i figured they would have the most experience with dealing with destination weddings and planning!!  I would highly recommend her, and she will then guide you in each step of the planning, including contacting resorts for pricing.  I would have been lost without her!

If all of your guests are staying at the Palace you should have no problem seeing everyone before the wedding. If I could do it all over again the only thing i would change is taking a little more time to ourselves. We didn't sit down on a beach chair or a pool chair for 7 days. We were constantly walking around talking to everyone. We also never ate a meal alone because we would always run into someone we knew. I always say that it was the most fun, un-relaxing vacation I've ever had :)

Thanks for the pics, it looks beautiful. So just to clarify, there is only 1 string of lights per pole/tree, therefore 10-12 string of lights (because there is approx. 10-12 trees)? I just want to make sure!!

 

Thanks again, very much appreciated!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
