      PrincessJ,

      I loved your pictures. Just beautiful! Your reception decor was really nice. I'm hoping to bring paper lanterns as well, in Jade and white. How many did you have to bring? I was going to order 10 or each colour. Is 20 too many or just enough? What do you think?

      Thanks!

        Hi Ladies! I am new to BDW but have been following this forum for the past few weeks. It took me a while to get through it all (189 pages!) but am glad I can finally respond and hopefully get advice and guidance from you guys!

         

        My fiance and I are having our wedding on 1/21/12 at the IRHS (finally proposed after 3.5yrs of dating). We are planning to have a bonfire after the rehearsal dinner, ceremony on the beach, cocktail hour on the terrace and private reception at the steakhouse. I have a pretty large family so we're going to have around 60 guests (at minimum!) so I'm hoping to cut costs in any aspect possible. We have already booked our DJ and photographer which were not cheap, as I think they can make or break the day. Does anyone have any suggestions for videographers? Our photographer can add it on for $500 and I wanted to see if anyone knew anyone who did it for less. I know the resort has one but I have read that its pretty cheesy work.

         

        I dont think we're going to go through the resorts florist as its pretty expensive, however would like to take advantage of the flowers that come with the package. Any ideas on wedding colors to go along with the tropical flowers? I am one of the least creative people you'll ever meet so this is one of the aspects of the wedding that I am struggling with!! I don't think we're going to do floral centerpieces as I figure this is one way I can cut costs by DIY.

         

        Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!! Btw, I have found that getting in touch with Nicole is easiest by phone. I get her almost every time that way. I called her about three times after I sent her my wedding date request to get her to send me the written follow up. I'm sure she was pretty annoyed... oh well!!

          Hi, I got married at The Beach so I can't be sure it is the same but for us we paid Almarie from Troipcal Wedding Jamaica for the ceremony and then paid for our reception 'a-la-carte' at the hotel e.g. rental Uncle Tony's $800, Cake $35, DJ $475, per person 'set-up' $8/person, etc.  which for 50 people was about $1500. Tell Almarie that Jenn Blades referred you to her, she is super fab and the Aqueduct location is AMAZING.

          Hopefully everyone checked out my pics on my review as I posted a bunch now.  

          The drive to the Aqueduct is 10 minutes away and the company organizes the transportation. For photos we contacted the wedding planner there via the online email address and paid $10/person for 1 hour in the gardens ($40 total) and we paid our photogs separately.
          Re: hotel rooms book the room you like, we booked Oceanfront and were NOT upgraded despite having 50+ guests at the hotel

I emailed Almarie last night and she got back to me this morning but since the WC at IBRH won't answer any of my emails, I don't want to go ahead with anything until I know how much I'll have to spend there for the reception etc. Did you have to pay to have some pictures taken at the great house?

            I brought 14 and that worked out well, they hang them from the ceiling fans and I think there is only 16 or so ( I only noticed 1-2 without lanterns), make sure to buy hanging LED lights at the same time it looks pretty when they turn the lights out for dancing!

             

            If anyone needs napkins I have 48 fucshia napkins and 31 pink chair ties for sale!

              Thanks for all of the information! One more question, when you book out a restaurant, do you have to pay per/plate for every person on top of that? Some of the past posts sounded that way.  It's very frustrating not being able to talk to the WC there, so it's great that there are brides like you willing to answer our questions. You wedding was beautiful!

                Also, who did you have play your music? Almarie tells me there is no microphone for the cermeony, was this a problem for guests trying to hear what you were saying? When I look at the pictures, it looks like a long road leading down to the aqueduct, where did you walk from and how did you get down there?

                  Thanks! We did not have to pay a per person/ plate fee. The $800 is regardless of the number of people you have (which is something I really liked about the venue)

                  Almarie organized my music, we had a steel drum band. No one had trouble hearing the ceremony and we had 50 people. The road takes you down to the aqueduct but the bridal car park behind the other buses/cars nearby so you just appear from the side to walk down the aisle
