    My agent let me know that they are booked the ast two weeks of May into June as well.  I have a few guests dragging their feet but I am not going to worry.  They had a year and can scoot on over to the Beach or Grand if they would like.

        Wow, it's confirmed then. I have guests that still have to book for my May 1, 2011 wedding. Most of the group has booked, but there are people hoping for last minute deals. Doesn't look like that's going to happen. I few friends said they might stay at the Beach and upgrade with the $30 pass for the day of the wedding.

        I'm not going to stress either. They all had plenty of notice, and I explained it was a very popular resort.

          So I am assuming you cannot have a microphone for toasts etc if you don't rent out the restaurant? Also, do you know if it's possible to have a slide show?

          I thought Calabash was perfect. The decor is very elegant and perfect for a wedding reception. Out of all the restaurants I though it looked the best. The food is wonderful, 5 course small portions but perfectly presented. We had  lamb, snapper and steak, if your guests do not eat fish I am sure there is another option but we were mainly vegetarian who eat fish so was not a problem. I asked everyone their menu choices 6 weeks before and let Nicole know. We did not have the option to play our own music as we did not hire out the restaurant, however they played their own music which was fine and everyone was just chatting anyway. Speeches were fine no problem at all music was only background music so everyone could hear and there was no need to shout. We had 35 guest in a U shape table at one side of the restaurant and did not feel like there was anyone else there. (there was a couple and a table of 4)

           

          Unless you have 100+ guests I would definitely choose Calabash, however Aunt Ruby's does have a beach feel. I personally don't like to be sitting outside at night for long periods of time due to mosquito's but I didn't notice any this year. Not on bite! You also have the opportunity to do a lot more decoration ideas with Aunt Ruby's and I think it needs it as it is quite everyday looking for a wedding. But once its decorated up looks fab. For me I just did very simple table layout and wanted it quite classic I also didn't want to bring loads with me.

          How did you like Calabash? I'm having a really hard time deciding between Aunt Ruby's and Calabash. I have a few vegetarians so I hope that there will be options for them. Why didn't they make you rent out the restaurant? Did you not have a DJ or anyone making speeches? I thought that if you had music or speeches, you were forced to rent it out? How many guests did you have?

          Sorry for so many questions :)

          I didn't even think about it like that but I guess we did. My guest were just ordering as they normally would at the restaurant on any other day. We had the reception at Calabash restaurant. We did not hire it out so the were two other tables of 2 or 4 people so I guess they just treated it like it was not a wedding. Which makes sense to me! obviously this cannot be guaranteed if they have their policy but it was ok for us. I don't think my guest would have even understood if the waiter had said no you may not have that. They came around with wine, then people would say actually can i get.... or just accept the wine. Maybe its different if you hire out the restaurant. I think the closest bar would have been the lobby bar up the stairs, not far but not so close to pop out and get drinks.

           

          Islandgirl, married life is fab! love it, I want a wedding every year now! that was actually our 2nd we got married first in December 09 in a church and this was the beach one  I had always dreamed of, it felt like the main one as all the family was present.

            How are the hair and make-up artists at the hotel? Do the grand and the suites use the same salon? If not, is one salon better than the other? Does anyone have pictures of hair/make-up that has been done there?

              Breeze616,

               

              Do you know what day  the Jamaican night was at the buffet ? I've had a few people ask me about that! They are really looking forward to the food.

                  Hi everyone!

                   

                  So my planning is coming along slowly but surely. Since I don't know how many people are coming, I thought I could at least work on my programs.  I printed a rough draft of my programs and wanted to get everyone's opinion. I have attempted to attach the photos, but they look huge on my screen, I hope you guys can see them!

                   

                  Right now I am having some difficulty with figuring out where to put the "signing of the register". I think it has to go after we are pronounced man and wife but before we are presented as a couple. I have emailed Nicole for a sample ceremony but have not heard back from her yet. If you have one, can you please share with the group or PM me.

                   

                  Can't wait to hear your feedback!

                   

                  Thanks in advance!

                    I found the info on Vegetarian Options for the beach resort:

                    Stir Fried Tofu with Asian Vegetables & Steamed Basmati Rice

                    Or

                    Filled Ravioli with Ricotta Cheese in Spinach Cream Sauce, Saut©ed Wild Mushrooms & Broccoli

                    Or

                    Steamed Oriental Cous Cous with Raisin and Pine Nuts On grilled Vegetables and Balsamic Reduction

                    Or

                    “Rasta Pasta “

                    Penne Pasta tossed with Island Vegetables , Ackee, Scotch Bonnet, Garlic & Shaved Parmesan Cheese

                    Or

                    Stuffed Crepe with Grilled Mediterranean Vegetables On Tomato Confit & Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce

                      Your programs look great. Did you make them yourself?

                      I have a copy of sample ceremony outline from Nicole to send you since I can't attach just yet. Hope it helps.
