      pintsize1...i did those on wedding paper divas.com...but if i would've found this site beforehand, i would've done them DIY...they were simply cardstock..and now i realize i could've done EVERYTHING myself...but, now i know...  they were inexpensive but i'm really loving the whole DIY process that now, i think i could've done a better job for far less $$$... 

       

      bruceg..not sure what the 'expected' turnout is..i guess you could say its 50% less than what it would be if you were having your wedding at home...then again, LOTS of brides have ALOT of guests..so you never can tell..i suppose it just depends on how the $$$ fall for your guests...if they can afford to travel, i'm sure they will.

       

      good luck, all and happy planning!!!

        I don't remember it being a minimum listed in the info I was given. I know they said it was $150 an hour.

Trying to figure out if this is okay across the board or just depends. Has anyone else noticed that the rules seem to vary at the same resorts? For example, Misee17, you didn't rent the restaurant out but they would still put up the lanterns, and I remember another bride in the same situation and they wouldn't put them up. Maybe it just depends on what's going on as far as what rules they bend?

          Yes I am having a videographer! I am flying them in with me. Check out their work on their website

          Just curious did any of the past brides or are any of you future brides hiring a videographer? We've hired one.

            Does anyone especially past brides know the size of the huppa?  Past brides that took their own material down how much did you take or how did you know?

                Special thank you to IslandGirl910, EHolt and MrsDeloatchtoBe! Without you ladies, I think I would have lost my mind, but here I am calmly counting down the hours until we leave, THANK YOU!

                 

                I promise to leave a review when we are back, but have taken up EHolt's approach....we are just going to go with the flow and enjoy ourselves.  Whatever happens, it will still be a fabulous, joyous, loved fill day and nothing can change that.

                 

                MrsDeloatch you're up next, have a fabulous wedding and IslandGirl, I will call you the minute we are back from the honeymoon.

                 

                Cheers!

                    Hey Ladies,

                     

                     

                    Sorry I didn't have time to post before I left for my wedding on June 13, 2011 but I'm home now.... my review may take me weeks to post b/c I returned to a busy schedule but I just wanted to say short and sweet that Nicole and Tiffany are AMAZING. I'm still a newbie and I don't have a planning thread or many pics up online but I'm certain from what I've read so far that many of you are as detailed as I am with planning. You've probably sent dozens of e-mails and revised your last minute wedding details sheet a few times and you will probably be adding things all the way up until the last minute day before your wedding. I want to ease your worries and tell you that the last wedding details sheet and maybe a photo or two is all you really need. Nicole is very organized and will send a letter to your room to confirm your meeting with her upon your arrival. She has your wedding details and confirms your choices on the spot. She will even give you a tour to select your wedding ceremony location, cocktail reception, dinner etc. She is very patient and friendly. Her assistant Tiffany is sweet and will go over the wedding rehearsal with you and your bridal party. She will accommodate most wishes on the spot (i.e. things like who walks down the aisle first, groomsmen w/ bridesmaids etc. . The rehearsal is very informal just a basic walk through, no music no minister..but no worries you don't need it. Be sure to show them pics of any decor you want set or demonstrate and you will be fine. Tiffany stayed with us the entire night..my ceremony was at the lazy river, champagne and steel pan band on balcony terrace, dinner @ Gourmet and dancing @ music bar. Tiffany and Nicole escorted the guest to each location..it flowed smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing.

                     

                    My wedding was amazing despite a few bumps that I would say take heed to....sorry I don't remember names.

                     

                    1) Salon, not all stylist are created equal. My bridesmaids hair turned out awesome. Mine was a tragedy that left me in tears. The salon manager convinced me to go with another stylist (my bridesmaids) and my hair turned out almost perfect. I tweaked it a bit in my room until it was perfect.

                    2) Not all DJ's are created equal. The DJ @ the disco is awesome. The DJ I was given sucked!!!!! badly. My brother stepped in to co-DJ which helped.

                     

                    Lastly. Iberostar is Fabulous. No worries mon! Enjoy the time you have with family and friends...the wedding day flies by.

                     

                    Feel free to ask me any q's.

                     

                    Happy Planning

                      Ladies I also booked RGWedding for our wedding on 9.9.11. He seems to be the only videographer in Jamaica! But highly recommended by our photographers. Toiinlove, hopefully we'll get to meet since our weddings are a day apart and the Grand and the Suites are literally 2 stones away from each other. Daisymable I agree a video is needed to relive the memories and the big moment over and over for a lifetime!

                      I booked RG weddings also for my 9.10.11 wedding. Are you getting HD? How many hours are you going to get? Your wedding will be here in no time! I so excited I decided to get a videographer
