Yes, candles are allowed! But it is very windy almost everywhere at the resort. So unless you have very tall candle holders to protect the candle from the wind, they will likely not stay lit. (I know from my personal experience I just had low tealight candles, and almost all of them blew out. So it ended up not really added much to my decor.)

    Hi Ladies, I just wanted to share something with you that I found out this week......

     

    I had fake flowers made for myself, bridesmaids and groomsmen as I found it to be wayyyyyyyy cheaper than going with Lamos. I was told if I email my pictures that would match the ceremony flowers with the flowers I had made. I also wanted similar flowers in the arrangements. When I sent in my pictures and they types of flowers that I have this is the responce I recieved:

     

     

    The flowers for the large hanging corsages and tall glass containers consist of tropical flowers (roses, lilies, daisies, and carnations). To add orchids or calla lilies, it would increase the cost of each corsage and tall glass container. The hotel can definitely match the colors of the flowers that you are bringing. Let me know your thoughts.

     

     

    I was a little mad because I feel like every time I turn around they are trying to nickel and dime me. I have not been cheap my ANY means with this wedding and even purchased the smores party for an additional $444.00. I just wanted future brides to know this and to be prepared because I was not. I dont mind having the lillies, but I really do not want the otehr flowers and I want everything to look somewhat cohesive. My whole entire wedding has been paid for I hate to have to give thme more money when we have brought so much buisness to the resort.

      I was wondering if you ladies would mind answering a few questions?

      Is anyone able to email me spa packages? As i was looking on Lomas and the make up, hair is really expensive compared to other hotels and i really wanted to treat my mum and bridesmaids in the morning of the big day!!

      Is the aisle on the beach okay to wear heels?

      And when you book do you get special offers and discounts or is everything fully priced on lomas?

      Im finding it hard to look for crystal beaded backdrops for the gazebo as im from the UK! Does anyone have any suggestions? And i may sound a little blonde..but how do they fit on the gazebo and dont fall down?

      Jade xxz

        Unfortunately Karisma/Lomas can seem very expensive, but take a deep breath and think about what you really what your wedding to be. Sometimes you may find there are lots of items in the package that you don't need, and can go with a less expensive package, and just add on the details you want. And like Jenny said, the majority of us brides, did lots of DIY projects or brought things down with us to reduce our budgets and add the details!

         

        As for the recent changes regarding the DJ. I wish someone could confirm with a WC that this is true or not. When you get assigned to your WC, ask them. It never hurts to ask!

         

        Also, if you have not booked yet, or don't have a travel agent I would highly recommend a GI certified agent. Right now Wright Travel is even offering a bridal dress rehearsal package for you to visit the resort and see all the beauty yourself! Here's the link: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/a/wright-travel-agency-and-karisma-hotels-brides-dress-rehearsal

         

        Best of luck with your planning! And if you need any info or advice- we're all here for you!

        Jenny- I love the different detail work on each jar. Makes it look very romantic!

         

        I thought I posted this a while ago, but It is definitely true about the DJ. My coordinator, Elizabeth Riff, advised that they were having too many problems with outside vendors, so now all they allow is the photographer & videographer. Everything else you MUST book through LOMAS, even if you offer to pay the vendor fee.

            Hi everyone!

             

            I've been trying to figure out the music issue. I was told that there is no one from the resort that would be able to play our music and press stop/play when needed. Is this true?

             

            I don't need a DJ since our group is going to be pretty small but would hate to ask someone to stand by the IPOD the entire time.

             

            Thanks for your help!

            Sorry Jade, I somehow missed this post.

            I think purple will look striking on the beach. They do offer colored sheers for the gazebo, but they cost $150/each(any color), $100/each (white) to rent and you will require 2. You may be able to use one of their gazebo package deals (such as the exotic gazebo and add a color)

             

            You will book your reception, and all the details once you have officially booked your wedding and have been assigned a Wedding coordinator. Once the WC makes contact with you, make sure to reserve the locations you want for your ceremony, and reception. The actual decision as to meals, decor, flowers, etc. will be made as you decide (no rush, and it can be changed). Usually all the details and wedding costs are finalized and paid for about 4 weeks prior to your wedding date.

            Welcome home MRS! So glad to hear all went well, and look forward to seeing some photos.

            Hi everyone!

             

            I've been trying to figure out the music issue. I was told that there is no one from the resort that would be able to play our music and press stop/play when needed. Is this true?

            Thanks for your help!

            Depends on where you are having music issues.

            At your ceremony, they will provide speakers and a microphone (at NO cost!). A staff member will select music from your Ipod for the ceremony. (it is helpful to have the songs put into Playlists such as: Guests sitting, groom entrance, bride entrance, registery signing, procession after the wedding, etc.)

             

            At your reception- if you choose to use the dinner included in a wedding package (ie. the semi-private event), you will unfortunately not be allowed to play any of your own music.

            If you do a private event and use your own Ipod dock- then you will have to have a friend/relative turn the music on/off.

            If you do a private event and rent the Ipod dock- I am not sure, but I would believe you will have to have a friend/relative turn the music on/off.

            If you do a private event and rent the sound system (speakers and microphone)- they have in past provided a staff member who has turned on the music, and then faded it as guests came up to use the microphone. Once the speech was complete, they would fade the music back on. They also selected from our playlists (dinner, dancing, first dance)

             

            IF you do choose to do the Ipod dock route, try planning in advance and make a playlist of dinner music (to last about 2 hours or more), and then a playlist for dancing (again plan for 2 hours). That way, someone might still have to man the Ipod, but once they hit play, hopefully it would be on autopilot.

             

            Hope that helps!

            Hey ladies! I finished all of my centerpieces, 24 in total [3 per table]. Well worth the time I put into it, they came out better than I could have expected. Best part of all, the total cost for everything needed to make these came out to less than $10 a table!!!! Hope you love them as much as I do!!  :cheers:

            These look great Jenny!! Love them :)
