ROR Decorations Set Up

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anybody knows what happens when you bring your own gazebo decorations to ROR, Jamaica, how do you make sure that everything is set up the way you want, and at what time to you give it to the wedding coordinator.

For example, I made the fishing line strung orchids, and will probably roll them up unto cardboard to keep from tangling, I might need to blow dry the fishing line to straighten it out, but I don't know how to pass them to the coordinator, and how to make sure they won't tangle up again.

 

If anyone could help, I would be grateful. Thanks in advance.smile36.gif

You usually meet with Chandlyn a day or 2 before your wedding. At that meeting you will discuss all of your plans. You can then give her those decorations & explain to her how you would like to have them on the gazebo. IF you do this, I would suggest bringing a friend along to the meeting, such as your MOH, to be your backup so that on the day of the wedding, she can check & make sure that your decorations are the way they are supposed to be.
If you don't want to give them to Chandlyn, you should designate someone in your group to do it. Either way, have a backup plan. The last thing you want is to be upset that they aren't on the gazebo the way that you wanted them!

To echo what Yolanda said, I would highly suggest asking one of your guest to supervise the decorations being hung the day of the wedding. My orchids were not hung correctly and they only hung about 1/4 of the strands and threw the rest away. In the end it didn't really matter, but I was pretty aggravated that all my hard work went to waste. I had given Chandlyn a picture to go by but that was not good enough.

in addition to all of the suggestions above, since I didn't have a MOH or even a wedding party for that matter, i took pictures of the final look and provided them to Chandlyn with handwritten instructions. ex. Fully extend and Hang from left to right (then i provided a picture showing the finished look, so she could know exactly the way I wanted it). She did a good job except for the way she tied my chair sashes.

Quick Question...Did you girls bring your own sashes? If so, how long did you make each one? I'm planning on having them too, but I have no idea what length and width to make them.

 

Thanks!

The resort will provide the chair covers and sashes in lots of different colors for $10 per chair. They use them at the ceremony and at the reception for that price.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
