    Hi Elisa,

     

    I am new to this website, so I'm not quite sure if you will get this message, but I hope you do!  I am getting married at IRHB on June 18, 2011! I am super excited!!!!  Can't wait for the vacay and all this planning to finally be over!  What are your colors for your wedding? Maybe we can share some decor...  So far in my planning I have started OOT bags, my colors are tiffany blue and silver, I think I want to do the ceremony on the terrace and Uncle Tony's for the reception.  I don't plan to rent out the restaurant because I still can't wrap my head around paying all these extras for an all inclusive resort?!  I may do some sort of cocktail party though for first dance etc.

     

    What do you have planned so far?

      Did anyone pay all of the extras and think it was well worth it?  So far we seem to be paying for everything and I'm starting to think we are overdoing it.

        I hope it's worth it Tina.  We are also going a little overboard!

          Tina,

           

          I made it a point to not get overly caught up in extras.  The reason we chose a DW is to get away from being overwhelmed.  Not that I wasn't tempted at times, but I think we are doing well so far.  My group is about half the size of yours as well so that does make a difference.

            There are a couple of different reviews for the resort.  One bride did not pay for any extras, she used everything that was included and she seemed to have a great wedding.  Other brides did a little of both.  I am trying not to use too many extras, but sometimes it is hard. I want it to be nice too...

                I can see how it is easy to get carried away with all of the extras.  We are hopefully not going to go too overboard with extras.  There are a couple of things that I feel obligated to do since our guests are paying so much money to come to the wedding, but I think the beautiful resort and natural scenery will help to make it a beautiful event without going too crazy.

                  Good question Mrsdeloatch! Marcia did not include the room in her quote (I only found about it from ladies on this board). Also, don't forget that you still need to pay an addl $100 for the vendor fee for her assistant.

                   

                  Has anyone else been asked to cover her room for the night if you are doing the TTD the next day?

                   

                  Last question, what time are you guys starting your TTDs and have you picked your locations?

                    I kind of feel that way about OOT bags.  I feel like I should do them for people, but i dont want to be cheap about it but those bags can get expensive quick...

                      Hi ladies, I emailed the Grand and here is there response. I hope this can help someone.

                       

                       

                      Hi Ms. Riggs,

                       

                      Due to unforeseen circumstances Ms. Pringle is no longer with us. My name is Janielle and I will be your new contact.

                       

                      Please see below my responses in blue.

                       

                      Dear Mrs.Pringle,

                      I hope you are having a wonderful day. I have a lot of questions for you.

                      1. I was hoping the day before the wedding I could schedule all of my guest to have dinner at the Japanese Restaurant. Right now I believe there will be about 20 people total (including me and groom) This will not be a problem, however I won’t be able to confirm this with you until at least a month in advance

                      2. One of my guest birthday is on September 10th so I was hoping we could order a cake?  Most definitely What are the choices?  Chocolate, Vanilla & Strawberry Cheese cake Any ideas of something else we could do would be great! Well if you don’t mind sharing your special day with her you can dedicate a toast to her during your reception, or you can arrange for both of you to get massages together. (P.s  if it’s a male then  the toast would work or an in room courtesy (for both male or female))

                       

                      (Her birthday is really the 11th, the day after the wedding. Do you guys know of anything I could do? I was thinking maybe go to Margaritaville but reading there reviews I am not sure.)

                      3. I wanted to have the reception at the gourmet restaurant. Is it possible to have that area private while we eat. Of course you can but it will only be for 1 and ½ hrs, starting at 6:30pm or 9:00pm.

                      4. I also wanted chiavari chairs. Is it $15 per chair? Please note that for all floral arrangement and d©cor  (including chivari chairs) We work with an external company called Tai Flora, below you will find the web page:. Jodi from Tai Flora will best able to qoute you a price.

                      www.taiflora.com

                       


                      5. I wanted to play certain songs during the ceremony. Do I need to put it on Cds or an Ipod?  Whichever is more convenient to you. Well there be somebody to change the songs we need be yes there will be?

                      Thanks for all you do, Most welcomed

                      LaToya Riggs
