I'd say the photographer is up to you, it's not expected for independant ones but if you felt they earned it then go for it. We tipped the WC's. Kimoya and Vanassa were phenomenal and I saw them working their butts off every day of the week. I tipped $60 to the 2 of them (I went to their office the day after the wedding, there is usually one of them there each morning until 1pm)

We chose a photographer that owns her own company, but she is still working hard ( i hope) hahah so i am confused on whether or not to tip these people, and if so.. how much should we tip? Obviously the minister and bar staff etc.. DJ and what not are no brainers... but i am a bit torn on the WC and photographer.. so any insight would be very helpful!! Thanks ladies!

To privatize or not to privatize?? Hi ladies! I have been back and forth for months on whether or not I want to pay the extra dough to do a private reception.  I prefer not to but I am wondering if the flow of the reception gets thrown off when transferring to the disco.  Thoughts??

BEAUTIFUL VIDEO!  They really did such an amazing job!

 

Do you or does anyone else know of an Jamaican video company that does videos like this one?   Now I really want one but our budget is limited...

Hey brides! So i have this idea that i HAVE to accomplish lol.. I would love nothing more to have a Jamaican/reggae singer sing as I walk down the isle.. Its a beautiful song that will really bring the island feel to the ceremony. Does anyone know how I could go about finding a singer? I know there are bands and steel drummers that perform, but i havent heard anything about an actual SINGER. Please let me know ladies!

 

Also, we are getting married on a Saturday, and was really hoping to have a DJ at our reception to play music for our guests to dance & have fun to. But i am now learning that there is a beach party on Saturday nights, which would prevent me from having a DJ? Does this only apply if our reception is on the beach? What about a private reception at Aunt Rubys, could I have a DJ there?

 

Any info would be greatly appreciated... and just a note to all the brides that have uploaded pictures, I have yet to see ONE picture that hasnt made me want to cry/laugh/smile/cream from excitement, you all look so beautiful!!!

& also, I am looking for a good DJ that is familiar with island music and might be able to incorporate Haitian music into our reception (my fiance and his family are Haitian so we want to play music to acknowledge both of our cultures... any suggestions?

 

& any suggestions on a good videographer? So far I really enjoy Zuluspro, Misha Earle, Sungold, and Stacey Clarke for photographer, but we want this whole thing videotaped too!!!

Thank you both so much.  We are really happy with it. There may be a local videographer that does the same work, however, we really only knew of maybe two of videographers in Jamaica.  We found them in the vendor review section of BDW.

Kinsellak 1,

 

My wedding date is April 13, 2013 which is also a Saturday, at the Suites. I am having a cocktail hour/reception with a DJ. I confirmed already with Nicole. I am assuming they have more that one DJ available.

Was the bonfire close enough to one of the hotel bars or do you recommend spending the extra money and having the bar right there?

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I had a lot to do at work after we returned from the honeymoon. We got married at the IRHS on January 9, 2012. It was beautiful. There were hiccups.  I will proivde a full review when I get pictures from the photographer (I think it works best that way) but am happy to answer any questions people have. We had a rehearsal dinner at Aunt Rubys and bonfire the night before, and a beach wedding with cocktails at the Moon Dance Walk (Jazz Bar) and reception at the Cabalash.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
