    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.

      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.

              Yes, I must agree that they did a haphazard job tying my chair sashes too. I often find myself focusing on uneven sashes when I'm looking at my pictures!!!

                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.
