I have been in contact with a company in Montego bay Called Wedding Belles http://www.weddingbellesjamaica.com/services.html   , the girls name I have been speaking to is Jo-Anne. They deliver right to the resort, with a 15% service tax. Also, I have a price list of the items, if you would like it, just send me an email at m_thackeray15@yahoo.ca and I will forward it to you. The prices are pretty fair, we are getting a bunch of things and having them delivered to the resort the day we check in as a welcome for our guests. Hope this helps a bit.

Mthackeray,

 

I'm going to send you an email as well.  I have my bags (which are nice jute beach bags), but I have nothing to put in them!

to answer a few questions...we got married on the beach, at 330, we had the steel band from 3-5 pm. Our guests drank champagne and danced around on the beach after the ceremony, and the photographer took us and the wedding party to take some pictures on the dock with the gazebo on the end (which I highly recommend!) We had the DJ at the reception at the steakhouse, and it was great. He played whatever we requested. At the end of the night (1030) we all went to the lobby bar and then a few more of us ended up at the disco (yes, in my wedding dress!!) to continue the party!!

 

They include house wine and red stripe beer on tap for our reception, however, if you drink wine, the house brand is not that spectacular. You can order wine for the tables, they just charge you for it. We ordered several bottles of Cassilero Diablo (its from Chile) and they charged us $25/per bottle, which I was fine with ( I think its 13 or 14 dollars here per bottle) I think it's a cash grab to pay $10 per person per hour for liquor, when you can roll to the lobby bar post reception, and you've paid all that money to come to an all inclusive resort for the week.

 

My wedding favours...I will have to look into that for you....we had a bottle of Jamaica Rum Cream and a small grater cake (which is a Jamaican coconut cake with pink on the top!) delivered the day we arrived to the resort. We paid 300 dollars for 65 favours and they wrapped them in a clear plastic and tied a raffia bow on them with a thank you tag...I will find my contact...

 

I also ordered hand fans as a favour, and had them personalized with our names and wedding date on them, I had my aunt place them on every seat for the ceremony, since it was pretty hot, even in December! The ladies at the resort move all of the speedo wearing old men out of the way, so you don't have to worry about having them in the background of your wedding pictures!!

Sjay,

 

blue mountain coffee is a great idea, but it will cost you $15-$20 per bag! That's why we went with the Jamaican Rum Cream (made by Sangsters) and grater cake.

At what point in the day did you have the steel drum band? Not quite sure when to hire them for. 

 

thanks!

Hey,

 

I got married at the suites in December.  We had a steel drum band play for the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour that followed (3 hours total).  They were awesome and 100% worth it! :)

HELP!!

 

Ok, I really need some help here. We are going to be making t-shirts for our group to wear at the airport and around the resort if they wish. I really want to come up with a funny, quirky saying for the shirts but can't think of anything... I am thinking along the lines of tying 'Jamaican' into it (ie. Jamaican us wanna get married...) and I am hoping all you creative minds out there can help me or give some suggestions??

I don't know about t-shirts for the guests but my husband and I wore shirts the day we traveled that said Going to the Chapell, Going to Married but Chappel was crossed off and it said Jamaica on it.  We got a lot of great comments on it.  I can send you a pic if you want.  Our wedding date was on the back.

My company makes t-shirts and all sorts of promotional products if you need a vendor.  Last year for my family trip to Jamaica we made "red-stripe" t-shirts with our last name and info about the trip.  They were really cute and we wore them while the ground was zip lining!  Just an idea!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
