I am so sorry I am just seeing this. Haven't been on the site in a while. We let the wedding planners know that we wanted to go there after the reception. We had no idea a live band would be playing. There was not a live band there every night of the week so I guess we lucked out. Yes, they played fun dance music. My brother requested a song when we came in but not sure if other people were requesting songs. It was a blast though!

@@Cj1053 I read your post about the Mojito bar. We are also doing our reception at Plaza Zavas and Mojito lounge after. Did you let Mojito Lounge know before hand that your party will be going there after? Are you able to request songs? Did they play fun, dance music?

 

At night we usually went to the mojito bar. Some of the evenings they had a live band playing. We did our 'send off' at the mojito bar but it wasn't quite a send off as we stayed and danced with everyone. I had brought bubbles and bells with us and while my husband and I were doing our last dance at Plaza Zavas, everyone went up to the mojito bar. When we arrived they were in 2 lines right inside the entrance and my brother had the band introduce us and we came in as everyone cheered and blew bubbles. The band then played a sweet love song and everyone danced with us. It was a fun way to keep things going as the reception flew by.

 

Hello ladies

We got our wedding photos and video back and we love them. We went through Sarani but used a photographer from her team. I would highly recommend them. I would also suggest getting a video. I didn't realize how much the video would mean to us until we saw it. I was amazed by how good of a job they did. It did cost more to add the video, but it was worth every penny. Thank you Sarani for this amazing video. It's the perfect way for us to look back on our wedding day. If you ladies want to check out the video Sarani photography did, here is the link...

Super happy! Just went to the door (in the middle of a blizzard), and was met by a delivery.. My bags from wedding chicks arrived! I ordered them on the pre-black Friday sale... So 50% off and they worked out to be $3.25 a bag because I ordered more than 20... They are perfect!!! attachicon.gifImageUploadedByTapatalk1417212670.298234.jpg

HA !!! OMG I love it....my cart is awaiting with the same one since a few days ago..just chose 2 colors for the design and the letters :) love this bag...but I am waiting for the coupon :)

Hi guys,

 

Do you plan on tipping your photographer?  If so, what's considered an appropriate amount? I read that 15% was standard, but not sure if it differs for destination weddings. I want to be sure I do the right thing, but at the same time, I am already paying that huge vendor fee and I'm not so certain I can afford to shell out much more.

I might sound SUPER CHEAP but I wont tip lol it is a LOT of money of photos....LOT of money on pictures that not even in Northern NJ someone charges unless they are super expensive  :)

@@linaco80 I was planning on keeping them as is because they are going to be in my welcome bags! What are you planning to do? :)

@@kmk2016 is that the mango color? I am looking into getting the Hola Amigo one!! and love love love that color!

 

Oh Gosh!!! I LOVED your Tervis cups but my FI did not approved lol...we do not want to be too cheap at all, BUT thesec bags are adding up...went to a clear tumbler for $2 each, I have my sticker being printed and will place it on the tumbler once I am done :)

Thank you so much!

 

We got the lanterns from http://m.paperlanternstore.com

 

We also went with the DJ. He did a great job. During our first dance he had the bubble machine and it turned out really nice.

@@carrieandsam We went with DJ All Music. Ahead of time our WC provided us with a packet and we filled out songs we wanted for entrance, first dance, cutting cake, during dinner, after dinner, etc. I also told him he could add songs if needed. He did a great job.

    • 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.
