      Great Question I would love to know the answer to this question too!

        I hope you have a fabulous trip as I am sure you will.  The weather is out of your control but I hope for the best.  Hopefully its just quick showers and you will have beautiful weather for your wedding!  Perhaps even a Rainbow! 

        Well ladies,

         

        I am off to Jamaica in just a couple of hours. I am so excited but quite worried about the weather.  My friend just got back and only had one day of sun the entire week! I just checked and it's saying thunderstorms for most of the week. I guess we cannot control the weather and we'll make the best of it! I booked my ceremony at the Cinnamon Hill Aqueducts so if I can get sun for that I'll be happy!  I'll write a review when I get back... wish me luck!

              How does everyone plan to arrange the tables? All round, mixed, etc. For the headtable is it only bride and groom or you can also have your maid of honor and best man seat?

                BridetwoBe,

                 

                You are right. I meant to right this to DaisyMable I think, but from her recent posts she seems ok. Sorry about the mixup.

                I hope you've found some good news since your last post. Please update when things settle down for you. I wanted to suggest to you to have your travel agent, if you used one, contact the hotel WC. I've read on several threads that the resorts are more accommodating to travel agent requests than requests from individuals. It seems outrageous to me that you would only be notified of these expenses a few days before your wedding. Something should be done to accommodate your original requests because of the late notice, especially if you have brought them several rooms of service.

                 

                I hope this helps.

                  I am also wondering what the menu for Calabash-Gourmet Restaurant was too.  Does anyone know how early we need to notify WC about our guests' entree choices.  My wedding is Sunday, Aug. 21 but most guests are not arriving until Sat. I was hoping to get it then.

                    @DeAngelis2be,

                     

                    I loved this post. Could you please pass on Beach Bum's contact info. Would you mind sharing the $/days/nights you got from Beach Bum? Thanks!

                    My FI and I are inviting everyone to the destination wedding that we would be inviting if we had a wedding back home. We are also surprised by the amount of people that are interested in coming in to the wedding; it's looking like 50-75 people joining us in Jamaica!!!

                     

                    We booked a group rate (holding 25 rooms) through Beach Bum Vacations and they offered us great rates, plus amazing incentives for the Bride and Groom: for 25 rooms booked we are getting a free cocktail hour with hand passed food, welcome party, and 7 nights Ocean View at the Grand! I would defiantly look into group rates at the Suites with Beach Bum. Come up with a list of things that you would like Iberostar to offer you for free or reduced cost since you will be bringing 50-60 people to stay at their resort for your wedding. We made a tired list of incentives based on the amount of rooms that are booked i.e. 10 rooms booked free cocktail hour and 3 nights free, the incentives increase with every additional 5 rooms we book.  Keep in mind that you can talk to other TAs about offering you such incentives for a group rate for your wedding. Before we went with Beach Bum we had 2 other agents trying to get us the same things but they weren't successful.

                     

                    Let me know if you would like Beach Bums contact info.

                     

                     p.s. From your last message: my wedding colors are fuchsia, lime green, and orange with 6 bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen, with a flower girl & ring bearer (them and their parents will be staying at the Suites, kids are allowed to come over to the Grand if you are hosting a private event i.e. welcome party, rehearsal dinner, and wedding ceremony and reception)

                      Good Luck! You will be just fine, think positive thoughts and everything will work out! I live in South Florida and during these summer months it says rain every day and it rarely rains or if it does, it is a quick storm that passes through! Hang in there, dont stress, and live it up, you are staying at a slice of heaven!!
