    Island bride, I only added hair flowers, boutineer for dad and coursage for mom and the steel drum band.  It was beautiful without all the extras, I took fabric for the huppa and chair ties.

    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?

     

     

     


     



     



    if she stays the night then no vendor fee at all, she and her assistant are guests on the property.  She didn't mention the room in her quote; it only came up after we arrived in Jamaica (I kinda freaked out since it was not discussed before hand and she paid for the room).

     

    if you have any questions about covering the room charge, just ask her.

     

    We did out TTD around 9 (I believe, it was a few months ago) and just did it onsite.  We probably could have gone other locations but I didn't want to push since she paid for her room.  It only took 1-1.5 hours, still had most of the day free.

     

     

    have fun!!!

      Our wedding is booked 2.11.12!!!!!  We are so excited and I already pretty much have my save the dates and wedding website built!!  So excited to plan with you girls! 

       

      Quick question (first of many  ) - Does anyone know, or has anyone seen people on the resort with their own mugs?  I would like to put some customized ones in the OOT bags, but don't want to go to the trouble if they're not allowed.

       

      Also, still looking to see if anyone has pics of the artificial flowers the resort has for the huppa.

       

      Thanks!

        Thanks ladies, I feel a huge sense of obligation to make the experience a grand one for all of the people that are spending all this money to be a part of my beautiful day.  I'm not complaining just wondering if others felt the same.  

        Day 1- I'm having the welcome dinner by the pool w/appetizers, open bar and steel drum band.

        Day 2- We are paying for all of our guest to do a catamaran cruise which includes drinks and snorkeling

        Day 3- Rehearsal dinner

        Wedding Day- DJ, dove release, cocktail hour w/appetizers and open bar, dinner, beach party with fire dancers, dance floor on the beach and lounge furniture (my grandma's need to sit lol)

         

        Plus I'm doing the OOT bags, passport welcome books and program books by Rebecca.  Parasols, sashes, fans, runners and flowers.

         

        To me all of this is the norm I suppose I just didn't expect the price to continue to add up lol....so naive!   Just so happy I had all of the BDW ladies to help me with this experience.  I would be so lost without all of you and your amazing ideas!

          Thank you for sharing Toni! Janielle is great... she has been very good about responding quickly and being helpful! Please let us know how your wedding goes, as I think it sounds like your wedding is before mine. Good Luck!!! You will not be disappointed with the Grand

          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

            Hi Tina,

             

            I see you posted that you are having your dance on the beach with a dancefloor. Has Nicole confirmed this yet? We also really, really want to do this! Do you mind telling me how much she quoted you for this? She will not answer our questions yet so I don't know how much to budget for.  Where are you getting the lounge furniture?

              Daisy  she quoted me $400 for the dance floor.  The lounge furniture is from the resort at no charge.  I will reconfirm this with her and let you know for sure.

                  That's not bad at all. I hope I can get the same price/ furniture moved from the hotel!

                    Your agenda sounds wonderful!  Everyone is going to have a fabulous time.  You and your guests are going to remember how much fun the whole event was.

                      I agree.. I am trying very hard not to get caught up in all the extras... My group is now down to about 14 people and I actually find it difficult to pay for alot of these things for such a small gruoup.  I keep re-thinking all my planning decisions not wanting it to go to waste if everything is not utilized.

                      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.
