Glad you like her! She was really amazing to work with and I was so happy with how everything turned out. Looks like she is getting a lot of buisness now from us!

You get more for your money from Almarie for sure --- instead of paying for food and drinks at an all inclusive. Thanks for letting everyone know about her Princess J, she is a saint and will literally answer a list of 50 questions for you within a few hours.

Hi girls, I received this PM (Below in quotes) and I think it is easier to answer for everyone to see in case someone else has the same question

 

"Jenn,

First off congrats on your wedding. I am so happy everything turned out smoothly for you.  This website has been so helpful.  I just wanted to tell you that I came across your review today and couldn't believe it! I saw pictures of those same aqueducts during my early stages of planning and fell in love with them just the way you did but unfortunately did not love the Hilton for my guests.  It was a real struggle for me. I felt I sacrificed my wants and went with the Iberostar just to please my guests.  So when I read your review I felt like my dream came true.  Sorry to be so cheesy!!!!  

 

I contacted TWJ and spoke with Almarie on the phone today for a few minutes.  I'm crossing my fingers that they have my Aug date available.  I was just wondering if there is room for price negotiation. Did you try to? I was thinking maybe from the additional guest fee $30.  I don't know. If not, I would be ok with it.  Also, I was wondering how Almarie gave you your flower choices and if she planned out the ceremony program for you.  I kind of need the help.  Well, thank you so much for taking the time to post.  It really made a difference in my wedding day!

Hi Winnie, glad to hear you are considering following your dream. This is what I did and I was SO happy I did!

There is some 'flexibility' with price with Almarie if you have a large group. I had 50 and when it came to transportation costs, I asked for B&G to travel free and we did. We didn't negotiate too much though.

You can also do your wedding more 'a-la-carte' which is what we did. We purchased a basic packaged and added things to it as we liked e.g champagne, band, etc. This worked out cheaper. I didn't request specific flowers but I'm sure you could ask for them. I told her my wedding colours and she chose the flowers. I brought my bouquet from home (real-touch). You can see from my pictures that she did a great job with the flowers she choose! If you want specifics she will order them for you but if they are imported they will be expensive.  I planned my ceremony and wrote the cermony for the pastor to say (I copied and pasted from the ceremony script post which is in another part of the forum).

Hi girls, I have been in contact with Almarie as well. I want to make sure she gives all the BDW brides the VIP service she gave me so please let me know if you are booking your wedding with her after reading my review. Thanks!

Nicole told me that if they come and leave afterwards there was no charge.

I found this amazing wholesale event planning website which is offering 12 centerpieces for $560 ($47 pc) including the feathers, vase, and lights. However, I only will be need about 6-7 center pieces. Would anyone be interested purchasing 5-6 of these lovely centerpieces?? They will be light and easy to pack plus they are dramatic and cheaper than purchasing flowers.

 

I want to get them with white feathers I"m sure they would allow us to order different LED colored lights.

Hi Princess J,

 

Where did you get your real touch bouquet from?
