Hi! 

 

I saw you asked about DJ All Music - we had them at our wedding at EDR in November. We really enjoyed them. They played everything we asked and nothing we didn't want played. They also followed our requested timing and kept our dinner/reception moving right along. If I can answer any questions about them, please feel free to PM me.

My FI and I have been doing a lot of research on Azul Sensatori.  It is definitely our top choice as of today. I have a few questions that I've been having a hard time finding the answer to.  Would love to hear what other brides have to say!  Our wedding will be in April/May of 2014 and we're estimating around 40-60 guests.

 

3. Did you use the preferred DJ?  DJ All Music I believe.  I looked at his website and it looks like it would be about $2000 to have him for the cocktail hour and reception.  Seems a little expensive but with the $800 vendor fee, I doubt we'd be able to bring an outside vendor in that would be any cheaper.  What was your experience with DJ All Music?  If you brought someone else in, how was it and (if you don't mind me asking) how much did it cost?

Hi Endiz,

 

We are GIVC and GI Wedding consultants with Karisma Hotels and are able to offer upgrades with our bookings.  Usually about 1 upgrade for every 5 rooms booked through us but it depends on factors like what room category they booked, if they book early enough, etc.

 

This thread has more info on wht rooms qualify, etc.: Wright Travel Agency: Karisma GIVC & GI Wedding Consultants

 

You can contact us:  Contact a Destination Wedding Specialist HERE if you would like more info.

Are there ever free upgrade options if we book with a group of 30 or more people? When we went to a destination wedding back in 2008 @ DR, every guest got a free upgrade to a premium suite.


We are planning on having the wedding in 06/2014, so we do have the luxury to wait for sweet deals.

 

Thanks!

Our photographer is a close friend of ours and will be attending the wedding anyways. She is staying at the hotel for 3 nights, and they did not have a problem with that. I'm pretty sure if you do not use one of the resorts "approved" photographers, then you will pay an outside vendor fee.
Usually with a photographer who is family or friend is "approved" by the resort. They are aware one of the guests is your photographer. But when it comes to a photographer who has been hired down there, and coming onto the property they have the right to approve/ not approve specific people. So at least let your WC know, so that you don't get caught out later.

I think promotions, upgrades and specials change constantly. Plus depended on your place of departure and your tour operator, they might have different deals. Highly suggest talking with a travel agent to see what is available to you for the possible date you have picked. And if you use a GI certified travel agent, they usually have some bonuses since they deal with Karisma directly. I can recommend Wright Travel...click on the link below in my signature for their deals and contact info! Good luck!

Hey we are getting married on November 16, 2013. We did hold 30 rooms with our reservation and was told at certain dates we will have the options of releasing some of those rooms back if we think they wont book up. We have only had about 4 rooms that have been booked so far. Seems like the same thing for us, people are saying they are coming, but just haven't booked yet:( When are you thinking you are gonna send out your invites?? Did you send out save-the-dates?? Thanks:)
Thanks murmel- I appreciate the input. Tarasteve- they should be out by the end of the month, there was an issue with the pkg containing the proof for my invites so I'm supposed to get the second pkg today. My vendor promised she wud put a rush on them once I give her the ok. I sent out save the dates back in November. I meant to get the invites out in February but the vendor I'm using was very backed up.

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
    • Hello, we're butterfly farmers and pleased to be bringing eco-friendly butterfly releases back to destination weddings in Jamaica. Videos of our releases can be found here: https://youtu.be/LIzidGsR89o One love,   Nadine   Fruit Hill Butterfly Farm fruithillbutterflies.com 
    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
