Here is what Nina sent me:

"The floor plan for your group really depends on the size of the group and your preferred seating plan. We can use either round tables (8 persons per table) or square tables (seating 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or even 12), we can have a “U†shape or a “T†shape."

I did the "U" shaped seating plan. You can put up to 9 people at the head table. Here is my seating chart:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And what it looked like at the reception.

MsWhatever...thanks for all the info. You have been such a huge help! Everything turned out beautiful for you. It's definitely reassuring, as I'm getting really stressed about how this all is going to turn out.

 

They really did an awesome job. I gave Nina all my stuff and instructions for how I wanted it. It was perfect! It was awesome. She tagged everything and took notes. Here is some of my stuff that she placed on each place setting.

I did not ship anything. I was worried about it getting stuck in customs. I did not want the added stress. smile35.gif

I had a 2 tier wedding cake and a grooms cake. They DID NOT charge me any extra for either cake. I would question them about that again! Your per person fee is suppose to cover the cake and champagne. They even added my decorations to the cakes.  Here is some pics. The sand is crushed graham crackers.

amount of people that will attend a two tiered cake is an extra $50.00 a tier.. Because I didnt like any of the cake photos I sent a photo to Nina and she promised to let me know what they can do to get as close to my photo as possible, I also presented an option B for a plain two tired  ivory colored cake and I would just bring the cake decor with me.

I don't think I'm going to have a cake, because I'm really not happy with what they're providing, plus it usually doesn't get eaten. I really want to have a candy bar, but was worried about transporting some of the glass candy jars. Does it seem pretty straightforward to ship to the resort through Fedex? Do you know what the costs are like? I'm also thinking of shipping some lanterns from Ikea for my centrepieces, but don't want the shipping expenses to get out of hand! Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated. All the best with your wedding! You must be so excited. Right around the corner. :)

Has anyone had any difficulty reaching Nina?  She mentioned she was going on vacation for a week, but I think she is back now.  I sent her an email almost 3 weeks ago and then again last week. No response yet...

Oh yes! It was so frustrating. They do not seem to get in a hurry for anything in Jamaica. I just kept emailing until she would answer. As your date gets closer, their response time will get better. Good luck!

First off I want to say thankyou to all the married brides who still take the time to answer all the questions of us soon to be brides and to the other future brides who share the information they have gathered - big group hug grouphug.gif

 

Did anyone do a sand ceremony? If so where do they do that in the ceremony? And as far as signing the papers do you do that and then they announce you man and wife? Or do they announce you man and wife and then have you sign?

 

Also who did a cake at cermony site? I see pictures of some people saying the cake the cake for the reception but then I see couples who had the cake and champage at the ceremony...just curious how that works if you were planning on having the cocktail hour after with drinks and appetizers?

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
