    Hi everyone, 

     

    Just wanted to let you know that I have the 2011 rates for everything, and they are all the same as the 2010. The only differences are the change to Tai Flora as the florist and the addition of having a bonfire on the beach or a "fire dancer" on the 'Services with Extra Charge' sheet.

      Hi Chan,

       

      I'm actually paying for all of my guest to go on an excursion.  I rented a private Catamaran sunset cruise which includes transportation and snorkeling..  Happy planning.

        Good to know, I was worried.  I only have 1.5 months left and I haven't heard from Nicole.  for the past brides, how far in advance does she start contacting you.  I would like to send in my notarized paperwork but not sure where.

          Tai Flora is 2011. Flower studio was 2010

          Rose Hall Suites Wedding Package Rates for 2010. I was never sent the rates for 2011,  but you can use the 2010 rates as a guide. They give rates for Flower Studio, but I have heard they are using Tai Flora, so you should probably contact Tai Flora for rates. Hope this helps with some of you questions!

All your hanging stuff they hang on buggy and put in new wardrobe and take bags over. I'm quite organized so I had all bags ready with toiletries in bathroom, shoes in the closet and suitcase at the suitcase bit all packed and ready to go. They transferred it and left things exactly as, couldn't even tell we were in a different room. It depends on where your guests are and who is helping you get ready. My husband and I stayed together to get ready and my auntie who was at the Grand helped me get the dress on (big struggle! lol) But my bridesmaids were not allowed into Grand as staying at Suites. Well they could have for a $30 charge but I was not fussed about it. There is more space and a bigger bathroom at the Grand so perfect if you and hubby are getting dressed together or if you have lots of bridesmaids. If you get all your stuff movable they could do it while you are at the wedding. They are so good, just do what suits you best. But it is honestly so smooth you wont even notice either way.

If they upgrade you to the Grand straight away just go for it as the two hotels are so close its like being in the same hotel, you still get to see your guests. I was back and forth a million times a day.

            Me too. I am working out on how I plan to do this. Have not decided if  I want my fiance to see me before the wedding. That would surely be a challenge, but it definately is doable. Will be easier at Suites since most of the party will be there. But will miss out on the large comfy space in the Grand. I love space and being organized. I hope not to leave anything in my bathroom at Grand.

                MsSmithtobe I thought the planning began 2 months prior. I hope Nicole reaches out to you soon. I will pray that all goes well for your last month. Happy planning. 

                 

                How much does the bonfire cost? That sounds like fun!!!

                       We would like to do something like this too.  Are they able to provide a dj on the beach?
