    Hi delgadot,

     

    We scheduled appointments with 2 photographers while I was there. One photographer we met with in the lobby and Brian we met at the beach and bought him a day pass for $50 so we could take pictures on the beach. I tried to make an appointment with Sun Gold but she was busy with a wedding at the hotel while I was there, she's a little out of my budget anyway. The resort doesn't mind if people meet you in the lobby.

    I do have a question when you planned your site visit did you also schedule to meet with the photographers on one of the days you were there? Where did you meet with them? Did they come to the resort or did you go somewhere else? If they came to the resort did you have to buy them a day pass to be on the property? I am asking because I am planning my site visit and I wanted to be able to meet with some vendors too but I was not really sure how to go about it. Thanks!!

      How much does IRBS charge for outside vendors? Sorry if I missed an answer to this question already.

       

      And if anyone has used the DJ that they provide, how good is he? I want us and our guests to have such a great time on our wedding day, so music has to be on point!

        Hi girls, just found out some more details so I though I would share, this is from an email from Tameica from the Beach hotel

         

        1) What time can the DJ start setting up at the restaurant?****If the
        restaurant will be in private, at 6:00PM if it’s the steakhouse and if it is
        the Cajun anytime after 3PM.

         

        2) What time can my friends start decorating the room?*****at 6:00PM for the
        steakhouse and anytime after 3pm for the Cajun.

         

        3) Are there vases available for our flowers?****No unfortunately

         

        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.

        Guest passes $75 for outside vendors like DJs no charge for florists/others just dropping items off


         


        50 Guests booked + the bride and groom!!!

            Hey Islandgirl910- as far as vendor fee's for the Suites go the day pass is $100.00 per vendor from the ceremony time until the end of the celebration. And my understanding is you don't have to pay for the florist as they will just be dropping the flowers off and not staying.

             

            As far as the DJ goes he did not get very many good reviews on here from past brides that I read. Music is a very big deal for us as well so I went and hired Kevan Stewart to DJ and MC the night. So far he has been great getting back to me and so forth so the extra cost to us is going to be worth it!! I think a lot of the past brides on here brought CD's with them and just had the resort DJ play those. I hope that helps!

              Kevan Stewart is who we are going to go with as well then. Thanks girl. You know if the music sucks forget about it, kills the whole night! LoL So I'd rather us pay the extra as well. Somethings you just can't skimp on.

                DeAngelis2be,

                 

                Thanks for the email. Love the pictures. So Kymoya is not the WC anymore? This has me nervous:( She was great to responding to my emails. Do you know who the new WC is and did Kymoya train them?

                  Well that was very aggravating! I spoke to Tameica and she said that she will just get a copy of my father's id once he is there... (huh?)

                   

                  So anyways, I'm just sending my BC and passport notarized copies.

                    Hi All!

                     

                    I've been reading this forum for about a month and wanted to introduce myself.  My name is Erin, and I'm planning to get married in late 2011 at IRHS!  I'm currently in the process of picking/securing my date.  I can't wait - this makes it all so real!

                     

                    Anyway...I wanted to thank you all for the information on this forum!!  I wanted to read as much as I could so that I didn't ask too many questions that have already been answered.  I think at this point, I only have some of the older posts to catch up on.

                     

                    I do have two questions for anyone that would like to share their experience/opinion:

                     

                    1.  What time did/will your wedding ceremony take place?  I ask because of the threat of rain most days in the late afternoon, and I would like to get married on the beach.  I know they have a back up area in the case of rain, but I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping and praying that the back-up plan never has to be put in place.

                     

                    2.  How structured is the ceremony/cocktail party/reception compared to a "typical" wedding/reception?  I'm a big of a planner and very organized - which some have called a control freak :) - so one of the many reasons my FI and I chose a DW was to NOT have to deal with all of the details and structure and timing of a "typical" wedding.  Bring on the island time!!

                     

                    Again, thank you all so much for sharing your experiences and questions!  It helped me choose IRHS and, of course, added to my excitement!!!

                    50 booked!!! .

                      Welcome to the forum! I am getting married at 3pm in Feb 2011. I chose the time as the reception hall only opens at 7pm to guests so I didn't want them too far apart. I also wanted it outside the hot midday sun. I know the greatest chance of rain is later in the day but hopefully in the dry season it won't be an issue. I also chose later in the day in case it does rain I can postpone for an hour or two and still have sunlight. Anyways, good luck with planning.
