Originally I was getting one line responses from Jodi-Ann Miller but it has now switched to Staschell. My wedding is just over 3 months away and I need some pricing from them so I can determine if I am going to pay all of their rental costs to have a beach reception or if I am going to stick to Aunt Ruby's.  If I stick to Aunt Ruby's then I think I am going to use a different flower vendor (Floral Fantasies) and just pay the outside vendor fee.  They were great to deal with and would send responses back to me along with prices within one day. 

I asked Nicole to start pestering Tai Flora and she replied that she would get Jodi-Ann to contact me today and of course she did not! I have received a response from the owner (Sasha) of Tai Flora once (not saying much, just supplying me with the measurement of their huppa that they rent out, but not the price which I also asked for) and once a reply from Staschell. Nicole said Jodi-Ann was on vacation and today was her first day back. She was gone for a MONTH??????  They could have advised their potential clients about that or at least have someone take over in her absence. I was of the impression that we were not allowed to use any other flower vendor. Can you please give me your contact info for Floral Fantasies (email preferable) because I think I am going to forward to them my flower proposal and see what they can do for me.  Hopefully Staschell gets on the ball and gets you the info you need quickly!  Good luck!

Hey Jreist - I saw on the 'services with extra charges' document that there are passes that cost: Day $75, Night $100, All day/night $150, but I understood this was the cost for non-Iberostar guests to come onto the property. This is what I'm hoping to get clarification on. Surely Iberostar won't charge a Beach guest $30 to come over on wedding day, and $75+ to come over any other day...??

I read that the $30 per day is for EVENTS therefore if she is just visiting you otherwise and it is not a private function (i.e. welcome party, rehearsal dinner) than I don't think she has to pay. You may want to doublecheck that with the WC though.

 

Thanks LolasMom71 - I don't think I've ever heard/read it was free for guests to come over, but that would be awesome if it is the case!

 

I've put all these Qs to the WC so hopefully I'll know soon. I'll be sure to post her response too.

Thanks

I asked about that, not for centerpieces but for extra decor maybe for the bar area..I was going to fill the vase with sliced limes and use the bouquets... they said the technique to do a full centerpiece is not done on site, it's done at the florist, so creating the look I wanted would be hard.  I'm still tempted to use them, but fill the vase with clear stones instead or something.  For as expensive as they are, they will not be just tossed on a table somewhere!

In the wedding package information for a legal marriage it notes that we are required to submit a 'notarized copy of the bride and groom birth certificate which must include the fathers name'. Our birth certificates in Canada do not have a mother or fathers name on them. Does anyone know exactly what is required? Just notarized photocopies or our passports and birth certificates, or something more?

I asked my travel agent about this and she says she thinks that your father's last name being your maiden name is already on the birth certificate so that should suffice.  I sent notarized docs (costing $56 to notarize) by UPS to Jamaica on slow service and it is costing $78!!!!! Unbelievable!!!  Everything sure adds up. If I get notifyed by the WC that there is an error with the birth certificate I will surely let you guys know.

I've tried emailing here twice in September and have not heard a word from her. My wedding isn't until January though, I just wanted to touch base to see what info she needed to get things rolling. I sent a fairly detailed email, but  have heard nothing.

I am also having a tough time getting a hold of Tai Flora and am in the same boat. I want to have a reception dinner on the beach but they will not return my emails so I really have no idea what their availability is to rent the items, let alone the cost. Our wedding is Jan. 14th, so a week after yours. It would just be nice to know what's going on.

    • 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?
