    One more questions to this awesome group of brides.

     

    I am bringing my photographer with me, and he said sometimes photographers have to pay a tax at customs to bring their equipment .  Does anyone know if this is true for Jamaica?

        A few more answers from Nicole:

         

         

         

        If we paid extra would it be possible to still have the PRIVATE dinner at the steakhouse even though we have only 30 people? Unfortunately no  what we can offer is a semi private for $400.00usd,please keep in mind that you won’t be able to have live music  because other guest will be dinning on the other side of the terrace .
         

        A past bride at your resort told me that she was able to have a dance floor set up for the beach for $400 and some lounge furniture. Can we arrange this? We don’t use our lounge furniture on the outside ,when we have functions that request such we use the Flower shop call Tai flora whom provide lounge furniture’s here is there contact information

        Contact:           Ms. Jodi-Ann Miller

                                jmiller@taiflora.com

        As for the stage just let me know what size stage so that I can source it for you.

          It's on the actual Iberostar website, so it is through the resort itself. I just contacted my travel agent, and because we purchased trip insurance we were able to rebook into the cheaper rate.

            Hi Tina,

            Does the $400 for the dance floor include a DJ or is the DJ extra?

                I have decided to rent out Mango Walk after the reception dinner so that we can have our speeches and dance there. Can anyone comment on whether or not this is an appropriate place to have speeches? How is the lighting etc...

                  Here are some questions answered by Nicole. I hope this helps

                   

                   

                  Welcome Dinner (Saturday May 7th from 630-830) - No Charge

                  I would like to make reservations for 34 people + 1 toddler at Aunt Rubby's for my welcome dinner. There will be 3 vegetarians in the group. They are true vegetarians and do not eat fish. Will there be vegetarian options for them at aunt Ruby's? The rest of will be fine to order from the regular menu.  We will advised the chef  and he will see what he can do.

                  Bonfire + Firedance $250 + $250 + $7 per person for extra people after 15 people for national open barBonfire at the Beach for more than 15adults $250.00usd for 1hr for every extra other  person if you would like to have National open bar $7.00usad per person .

                  After dinner at Aunt Ruby's we will head to the beach for the bonfire and to watch the fire dancer. Does the fire get put out after 1 hour or can we stay at the fire and then just go to the nearest bar to get our own drinks?  The Bonfire enclosed a open bar for 1hr for 15people if it over 15  for each extra   person its $7.00usd  per person  per hour if you want the National open bar . Is there a bar near the area where the bonfire will be? Yes

                   

                  Wedding Ceremony - included in wedding package

                   Location: Lobby Terrace

                  Seats: 30

                  Time: 3:30pm

                  Chairs: White covers and silver bows

                  Runner: white

                  Huppa: decorated with white sheer fabric, artificial Ivy and artificial flowers 

                  Steel pan band for ceremony $350

                  I would like to hire the steel pan band to start playing 5 minutes before we walk down the aisle until the minister starts his speech (approximately 15 minutes). I would then like them to play for 45 minutes after the ceremony (while we do our toast). This equals an hour of performance. Is it possible to do this? Yes

                  Is there space for them to set up on the Lobby Terrace? Yes

                  Can I request songs or do they choose their own play list? Yes you can

                   

                  Cocktail Hour - (430-530) no charge

                  Guests will be instructed to head to the main lobby for cocktail hour where they can order drinks from the lobby bar. The wedding party will be taking photographs at this time That will be fine.

                   

                  Reception at Calabash (545-8)

                  I would like a NON private reception for 34 guests + 1 toddler (including bride, groom and bridal party). I would like the tables set up in a U shape so that everyone can interact. I will bring seating cards so that everyone knows where they are sitting. Guests will be instructed to arrive at Calabash for 545 and at 6pm the wedding party, bride and groom will make an entrance. 

                  Questions re: reception:

                  1. As I said before, there will be 3 vegetarians. Is there options at this restaurant for them?

                  2. I am bringing wedding favours to place beside each plate setting. Will the staff be able to set these up or am I the one who has to do this? Yes they will be able to do so.

                  3. Are the chair covers from the ceremony brought in and put on the chairs for the reception?  yes that can be arranged.

                  4. Are there candles that can be used to put on the tables or do I have to bring these with me from Canada? What we have are tea light candles but if you want to bring your own that’s fine.

                  5. I want to put the bridesmaids bouquets in vases on the tables. Do you have 5 vases at the resort that I can borrow to put on the table or do I have to bring these from Canada? You would have to rent those from the Flower shop or you can bring your own.

                   

                  Rental of Mango Walk Disco (830-1030) $350 for 30 people 

                  We will rent out the disco to do our first dance and to have some time to dance and party with our guests before the general public arrives. 

                  Questions:

                  -Is the disco far from Calabash? 5 min walk

                  -Is there anyway that I can get in contact with the DJ to give him a play list (first song, dance with father etc..) you can send your play list to me and i will give it to him.

                  -We have been taking lessons and got our first dance choreographed, is there a spot light of any sort on the dance floor so that everyone can see when we do our first dance? Yes we do have one  at the Disco.

                    I have decided to do a semi private reception dinner at Calabash. Because we will only be 34 people, I want the tables set up in a U shape so that everyone can see each other. Do any of you know of any games or activities that I can do during the dinner to keep everyone entertained? What have other brides done? Any advice is much appreciated.

                     

                    Thanks

                      I think I'm going to book Rashel this weekend (she's having a great sale!!!) for myself, 6 bridesmaids, and mine and FI's Moms. I was curious if your bridesmaids got their hair and make up done with her as well?

                       

                      Thanks,

                      Christine


                      No it was just me, everyone else was too cheap lol.
