    How did you get the island to send you tourist books?  We have been trying to look but cant find any!

    Gran Bahia 9-10-11, if anyone has any questions, ask away! We are having 35 guests and doing the free ceremony. Jamaica sent us these gorgeous tourist books(for free!!) so I am sending those and custom made luggage tags to everyone booked in August before we all leave. When we arrive everyone will get a welcome bag and personal thank you note.

    In our welcome bags:
    Aluminum Water Bottle
    Beach Towel
    Hangover/1st Aid Kit
    Chips/Candy
    Mini Rum Cake

    We aren't bringing any decor, we heard the resort does a great job already, so less for me to bring.

    For favors we are doing our favorite cookies from Alchemy by Carla Hall (hooty hoo chic from Top Chef) her cookies are amazing and come in the cutest mini tin. Perfect as a wedding favor.

    Other than that everything else is coming along. We are pretty much done other than buying the food items which we will buy right before we leave.

    Any questions, ask away. I've got a great list of vendors and websites for all this stuff!!

    Side Note- I've got extra multi-colored luggage tags if anyone needs some..

        Hi,

         

        Congrats on your upcoming nuptials. I'm very interested in getting married @ Gran Bahia but am having a difficult time getting in contact with Beverly, the coordinator.  Maybe you can help me with some of my questions:

         

        Are you having this issue as well? 

         

        Where are you having your reception??? Do they give you extra time after dinner for dancing and music or do you have to pay extra??

            I'm trying to get a florist sorted out... So far I've considered Tai Flora (the florist the hotel uses but they seem to get mixed reviews), Floral Fantasy and Jan's. Google doesn't seem to be bringing up many more...

             

            Does anyone have any recommendations?

                For simplicity sake, I think we will go with Tai Flora... I still don't have final numbers so I have no idea how many center peices will be needed etc. but I would like to get an idea of how much to budget for flowers. Since I'm totally clueless in this area, what are you ordering?... Are you getting flowers for parents, for the aisle/ ceremony, etc...

                  Because were doing a private reception and upgrades on my flowers, i want to save some money so what i was thinking was to bring the flowers from the ceremony and making my own decorations for the tables, i dont think were having a big number so i dont think i need to order alot of extra flowers... however, i do have the flower book, if you want!

                   

                  As far as the parents go, i know with my package they get flowers, as well as paper shades. and since im not having a maid of honor im having a man of honor..those flowers will go to someone else lol lol

                   

                  And the aisle, im getting married at the garden gazebo so im going to keep it simple due to the fact that the reception is my major focus of decoration and bling lol

                   

                  if you need any help or ideas ive got a ton lmao more than i can use

                    I think we will take the flowers from the ceremony and use them at the reception as well! Great idea!

                     

                    When you say "flower book" do you mean a book of everything Tai Flora can do? I would LOVE to see it!
