Hi Sjay,

 

I don't know if you already have this information...

 

Here's what one of the previous brides wrote about this, somewhere in this thread:

 

"The table measurements are as follows; the round Tables are 182CM in Diameter and the Height is 74cm.

 

The rectangular Tables are 243cm in length and 76cm in width and the height

is 74cm."

 

Hope this can help you

Our original plan was to move over to the Grand after the wedding but I had never been to Jamaica and really wanted to experience the cliffs.  To be honest, I wish that we had stayed at the resort one more day to spend a non-wedding day with our guests, our wedding was on Wednesday, we left on Thursday.  So with your wedding on Saturday you will have a couple days after to enjoy with your guests. I will say though, it was a great experience to get away and just enjoy time alone with my new hubby and to eat some local food.

Also, non-related question, did anyone put on their invitation anything about the resort fee if people do not stay at IRHS?   I have some people that are talking about going to Jamaica but staying elsewhere.  I have the resort fee info on our website, but I don't think they have seen it because the resort fee seems quite high and I think they would think otherwise about coming if they knew the cost.  Can I put it on the invitation or should I just hope that they see it on our website?

Thanks so much Papoue! I didn't have the information, and to be honest, I'm feeling a bit frustrated. The WC recently emailed me with only the height of the tables (?!) and she said the square (I suppose rectangular?) tables are 77cm high. I don't know which of all these various measurements is correct! I guess I'll just err on the side of the larger numbers. Thanks again for posting the info, I really appreciate it! :)

We were married at the Suites on July 19th, 2012.  It was so wonderful!  I'll share a few details and the link to our highlight video.  I start back teaching this week, so don't have time to write a full review, but feel free to PM me any questions! All in all, it was perfect!  Nicole and Tiffany REALLY know what they're doing! I was also getting frustrated with late responses, but I just typed out everything I wanted, and they followed it to the letter, and it was better than I ever expected!

 

Video link:

 

 

70 guests

Tuesday- Welcome party on the beach with 2 hours of bonfire and national bar and mento band (loved it!- They set everything up nicely and people commented that they felt like they were in a movie!)

Wednesday- Nicole ran a rehearsal, then we had dinner at Calabash- delicious!

Thursday- Wedding day: The groom and I went with our photographers to the Rose Hall Manor for one hour of photos. This was HOT, but we love the photos.

Ceremony was at 5:30 on the beach- weather was very nice

6-7: Cocktail hour with open bar and Steel Pans Band on the beach- soooo worth it! This may have been my favorite part of the day

7-11: Private Reception at Aunt Ruby's- this was also HOT, but I didn't want to be indoors when all the Chicagoans came for the ocean! People would just step outside to catch a breeze, and the paper fans we passed out at the ceremony also helped.

DJ Kevan was awesome- I sent him some song ideas ahead of time, and he played them all.  We paid him extra to play until 11, which Nicole allowed.  It was the perfect amount of time, actually. I was really worried that 11 was an early ending, but some of us went on to the disco, but most people ended up crashing.

 

Hair- Mervina at the salon was great!  All my bridesmaids had their hair done at the salon, and everyone was very happy!

 

Make-up- We brought a Chicago area MUA with us.  She did 12 girls, and the make-up stayed in the heat.  She is great and available for travel: http://www.deannaraeartistry.com/

 

Photo & Video- We brought down Chicago photographer and videographer Heather Stone and her assistant, Kai.  They were amazing and captured 3 days of dinners, pool time, and of course wedding day.  They are also available for travel: http://heatherstonephotography.com/

 

Flowers- We used Tai Floral.  I wanted simple flowers, so we had only a draping of crystals with orchids on the back of the provided huppa.  That was it in terms of ceremony decor.  We got engaged in Madrid, Spain, so I wanted to bring some "Spanish" element into the day, so the bridesmaids carried Spanish fans and Tai Floral tied on some small flowers to the fans.  I was also very happy with my bouquet!  For the reception, we brought our own lanterns, paper flowers made from our favorite books (we are both English teachers!) in vases with votives for the centerpieces, and bookmarks for seating assignments.   We did not get anything from Tai Floral for the reception.

 

Best of luck to all the other brides! You will LOVE it there, and you will have a dream wedding!

Hi there,

Do you have a photo of the crystals plus orchids hanging at the back of the huppa. I saw it in your video and loved it but I can't find a picture of anything like it anywhere. Do you know how long and wide it is? I am going to order some Real Touch flowers off ETSY and since Tai Flora wants $100 for the crystal + flowers I wanted to see how much it would cost me on ETSY instead. Any help you can provide me would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you.

 

Regards, Jaqui

I need to discuss with the WC price negotiations ....would a TA be able to help with that

 

Hey Justine,

I just meant that in the beginning when the WC was super hard to get ahold of she took care of a lot of things for me. In terms of price negotiations, what specifically do you mean? Like to negotiate the actual wedding cost of the travel cost? If anything to do with the wedding, It would be your WC and anything to do with the trip costs it would be the TA. I didn't know you could negotiate lol hmmmmmm.

I'm finding Nolitours a little ridiculous as well, We wanted to stay for an extra 3 nights as a 'honeymoon' and they quoted us $2438+380 tax. Our trip alone is only $1230 taxes in.

Not sure about negotiation either but I'm going to try ....especially how they charge you an extra $18 for the guests to watch your wedding. Seeing how we have more than 8 (which is riduclous...8!!) that'll add up. We only had to pay an extra $100 to extend the air for 3 days. We are going to Rockhouse for a mini moon and to experience the cliffs, Rick cafe and other local food.

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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?
