Thank you!! TO answer your questions:
Yes, we had a private reception at Jambalaya Cajun Resaurant. We had 51 guests including us and the place was perfect!! Seriously they decorated it beautifully it looked even better than a traditional wedding reception. Very beachy-feel great colors!
I made ALL of our flowers at home by getting silk flowers from Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Joanne Fabrics. It was hard but in the end I lovvvvved our flowers more than anything a pro would have done. I liked doing it my way because 1. it was cheap (about 120 dollars for my bouquet, 7 bridesmaids, 6 groomsman, groom, and 2 readers, and moms and dads coursage/boutoneeire) We would have spent well over 700 dollars for all of that with Tia Floral, 2. i got to put them together myself and make it just the way i imagined, 3. it was less coordinating with the resort.
I got my hair done at the spa and I loved my hair. 2 of my bridesmaids got their hair done and both of them LOVED it. it was relatively quick because the spa girls are soo good with beachy flowey hair and just throwing something together that looks good on each girl individually.
HOWEVER: i got my hair, makeup, and mani pedi....i would only recommend hair and maybe makeup.
I got my nails shalacked at home before the wedding to grow my nails out. at the spa, they had to take the shalack off and did my nails the day of the wedding. my nails smudged and i had to frantically get white-out from the front desk to fix my nails!!!! i would recommend getting ur nails done the day before the wedding, or get them shallacked at home just before you leave for jamaica-im sure you will get MUCH better results!
makeup was good-but it was soooo hot i had to touch up my sweaty-ness with my own powder throughout the day and the lipstick she put on my wore off by the time for ceremony/reception so i was a little worried about that but i just threw on some gloss cause i dont normally wear lipstick but for my wedding day i thoguht it would nicer. bring extra lipstick from home to reapply if you get your makeup done at the spa. prepare for humidity!!!!! it was hot on my wedding day and i was a sweaty mess!! i ended up putting my hair back in a pony tail when we went to the disco after the private reception and changing into a short wedding dress and im gladdddd i did that. i felt so much better!! my hair was half up half down for ceremony cause hubby likes it down.
umm any more questions just email me AngelaGPowers@gmail.com. I dont check this too often and I want to help all of you future brides!
