Sorry they arent the best quality... Feel free to ask me questions...

      Does anyone have a photo of the arch if we choose to do the ceremony on the terrace off the lobby? Can we choose between arch or huppa?

        Can't wait to see your photos... Thank you so much for sharing where the bonfire was located.  I am looking to add this to our day and any details would/would nots are greatly appreciated!

        I stayed at the Suites but will try to answer from that point of view


        1) Did you or any of your guest plan or used calling cards or rented a cell phone while in Jamaica? We bought minutes and logged onto FB to tell people we were there.. 15 minutes of internet was $3US and 30 minutes was $5 so we bought one card and shared with family and friends

         

        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.

        All specialty restaurants required long pants for men... They werent strict on footwear as along as they had some on

         

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

        we did 1hr but Marcia Roberts could have done longer, so we got dinner started and left back out to take more after orders were taken

         

        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!

        We did the bonfire and hired the dj.. he was great!  he played most of the songs on my request list and thre in a few more great choices

         

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

        The bonfire included the open bar, however the dinner did not.   Every restaurant has a bar in it and the waiters got the drinks per the guests requests and guests got up and got their own if need be

         

        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?

        Not sure about the Grand exactly but from what I hear they are all set up the same.  The lobby bar is a long walk from the beach.  If you have guests that have walking issues that might be an issues.. We did the cocktail hour on the beach right next to the ceremony which included the champagne punch and water in the package and appetizers we ordered.. they were all satsfied.


         



         


        Thank you!!! Yed Im working on my review now but just for you.. The wedding was on the beach the cocktail reception was right next to the ceremony location.. Dinner was inside at the Calabash and the bonfire was being set-up during dinner since it was a surprise.. Guests knew there would be dancing but had no clue what was in store and were pleasantly surprised.. the bonfire was next to the Sunset Pool and Bar which was a short walk from the Calabash restaurant.  No dancefloor... we really were excited about capturing the beach effect so dancing in the sand was AWESOME!!!

          Awesome!  I would love to see the pics of the standard package and flowers.  I have been debating on what to upgrade and not

            I am sure they will but we had not discussed alternatives... We have recently decided to do what a recent bride did and go ahead with the hour and a half wedding dinner that is included in the package and then taking the guests outside to the bonfire. I have heard from a few brides that they paid for the bonfire for an hour but they ended up getting 2 out of it. At the bonfire is where we will do the first dance, gater toss etc. And we will also have a DJ at the bonfire. So this will save us the almost $800 we were going to spend considering we were going to do the bonfire anyway.

             

            If you are still considering doing the BBQ on the beach you may want to email them to see what the alternatives are when it comes to the weather.

             

            Happy Planning.

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

                  Do any of you communicate with the wedding coordinators via email?  All I can seem to get is phone numbers.  I am getting married off the resort but we are staying at the suties and would like to have the rehersal dinner there.  Any names or emails would be great!

                    I am thinking about having the DJ and bonfire for 2 hours. Hopefully I can get 2 hours out of booking the bonfire for one :) I have seen a few brides say theirs lasted an additional hour on top of the one they booked. But either way we will book the DJ for 2 hours.....We will be having the steel pan band during the cocktail hour.

                      Quick question. I know that Rose Hall uses Tai flora for all flowers. Does that mean that I should contact Tai Flora now with my pictures for my bouquets or do I send my pictures to the resort wedding coordinator and ask her for the cost? I just don't want to leave it too late and then het there and find out that they can't do what I want.
