Because I am having my ceremony off site, they won't deal with flowers for the reception/centerpieces for me. I am only four days away from leaving!! I just sent an email to Tai Floral with the msg line- "HELP!!" in hopes that they can help me out on such short notice. She originially told me $350 for the slide show and just told me now it's $450 and that they have to source it from an outside vendor... which means it's not even booked yet. I have two bridesmaids that spent weeks making the slideshow and now I worried that they may not have equipment for me. Also, I am bringing my own gluten free cake mix because I am celiac. She told me that they would do it for free since I am bringing the ingredients. Now she tells me it's going to be $160. I am just praying that everything will work out at this point! I know whatever happens, we'll make the best of it and I am not going to stress once I am there.. what will be, will be. However, right now just days before leaving I am not impressed with the wedding coordinators.

          I finally finished my  DIY STD's!!!  I love how they turned out, and they saved me a bunch of money.  I was inspired by something I saw on ETSY, but couldn't afford!

              Thanks for the info! $32/ person is actually not too bad considering it's $800 to rent a private restaurant! Definitely something to consider!

               

              If it happens to rain, will they allow you to move the dinner into a restaurant?

              This is for a buffet style reception on the beach.

              I am going to combine it with the bonfire so we can save a few $$$ on the alcohol since the bonfire for $250 includes an open bar for an hour. Our reception is only going to be 3 hours long so we may not even spring for the extra alcohol. Especially since it will be over at about 9:30 and our guests can then utilize the alcohol that is included in their all inclusive stay.

                Thanks! I did get the sheet but I didn't see any pricing for dinner on the beach...

I forget the cost per person for the hors d'ouvres, we are doing ours right after dinner so I didn't think anyone would be hungry just yet. Did you get the extra charges list when you booked? I already asked if they would honor the 2011 prices for us and they promised they would. I saved that email of course ;)

                  I'm also hoping I can get peonies! Your bouquet is gorgeous!

                    I didn't think we could do receptions on thebeach @ the suites. I remember asking Nicole after I confirmed our date whether that was an option or not. Please let me know if anyone finds out anything different!

                      Evening Ladies,

                      Have a couple questions and I'm really hoping one of y'all has the answers.

                       

                      1) Did you or any of your guest plan or used calling cards or rented a cell phone while in Jamaica?

                      2) For the Grand Brides- is there a required dress code for the restaurants? I thought I read somewhere that men are required to wear collared shirts and shoes for dinner.

                      3) How much time are you allotting for pictures between the ceremony and the reception?

                      4) What did you do or doing for music at the reception? I'm trying to decide on a DJ or a band, any recs would be appreciated!

                      5) Did you op for an open bar at your reception?

                      6) DO you think it's okay to have the guest go to the lobby bar for the cocktail hour? Anyone know how many people the Grand lobby bar can accommodate?

                       

                      Thank you in advance for the assistance!
