I like satin...looks more elegant. Mrssmith I got a cheap calling card...if you go to some international stores you can add a calling card to your sell phone...I still never got a hold of Nicole via phone, but her assistance do well answering questions.

Do you mean the lights hanging in the pic I posted of UTs? That is a pic I found online - I'm pretty syre the lights are theirs.

Yes shame we didn't get to meet. Your pics are gorgeous, hope you enjoyed your mini moon too. Was it couples you went to? How was it in comparison to Iberostar?

 


I actually went to the new Secrets St.James/Wild Orchid, and I have to say it did NOT compare to the Iberostar. It was a gorgeous, brand new resort, beautiful decor and we upgraded to the preffered building which had a heated pool and free wifi on the beach. But the food was definetly not as good (and I stayed at the Beach hotel!) and the service wasnt as friendly. I'll be posting my review for that resort soon with more deets.

 

You were smart to stay your second week at the Grand - I thought I might be tired of the Iberostar and would want a change of scenery - I wish I had stayed at the Grand instead. When we go back we'll stay there for sure!

Daisy - YOu can have your dancing on the beach, but they will not set-up dinner tables on the sand. You can only have dinner in the restaurants or on the patio of Uncle Tony's at the beach resort.

Mrs Smith - I would def try calling. I found that was always the best way to get a quick answer. I added a few bucks on my Skype app for iphone for my Jamaica calls - worked great!

Misee - Organza is typically a sheer fabric (see through) that is slightly stiffer. Satin is opaque and softer, so that should help you decide. Personally, I like satin :)

 

 

For you ladies looking at rates - rates are always typically cheaper in the summer due to the fact that it is hurricane season and because, well, its summer. :D

I'm sure that it's not too late to change it. I had originally booked our honeymoon elsewhere but I just changed it to The Grand

Wendy, 

 

I'm very curious how your sand ceremony container survived when you traveled back? Did it get all mixed up or if it's full enough does it stay put? Anyone else who has any info on this, please respond! I'd like to do a sand ceremony and have our 5 year old daughter hold the container that we pour our sand into. :)

Open bar is an extra $7 for National and $10 for international drinks, per person per hour.

Does anyone know if the $18/person for the reception includes the open bar or is there an additional cost for this? In the package I received from my wedding coordinator back in Oct the open bar is an extra cost. For the international bar it is $10 per person per hour. The national bar is $7 per person per hour. If u rent a restaurant for ur reception wine, beer, soft drinks, tea and coffee is covered in the $800 rental fee

Nicole recommended 4 when I said I wanted sunset pics.  We got married in October and it was rainy around 4pm some days the week we were there but we were very fortunate with NO rain on our day.  The ceremony, including signing the documents and sand ceremony took about 30 min.  After that we took pics and our guests were in many of them, the slideshow was the ones the photographer picked, she sent us about 2500 images on disks.  I have created 2 photobooks and about to make a 3rd for different guests/families at the wedding.  They did watch for some of them, they may have stopped by the bar for a drink too then we went to dinner at 6 or 6:30 (first seating).  We bought sand at hobby lobby (or maybe michaels) and brought the vase, Nicole got the bottles for us (for a Jamaican flair--and 2 pieces of glass not to carry around).

 

Oh, and thanks for the compliment :)

Kim, we put our sand in a checked bag and it was pretty well mixed when we got home so we used the leftover sand and repoured it (I think we did it on our 1mo anniversary).  I really didn't want it my carry on bag, we already had enough stuff to lug around the airport. Only we will ever know the difference. I have the mixed sand if I can come up with a great craft project I will use it.
 

 

Let me know if I can help!!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
