    Whoa, that's expensive...unless it's a really big bag...? I'm definitely interested in your contact, Jamaican Rum Cream would be a great option too.

     

    Thanks,

    blue mountain coffee is a great idea, but it will cost you $15-$20 per bag! That's why we went with the Jamaican Rum Cream (made by Sangsters) and grater cake.

Our guests drank champagne and danced around on the beach after the ceremony, and the photographer took us and the wedding party to take some pictures on the dock with the gazebo on the end (which I highly recommend!) We had the DJ at the reception at the steakhouse, and it was great. He played whatever we requested. At the end of the night (1030) we all went to the lobby bar and then a few more of us ended up at the disco (yes, in my wedding dress!!) to continue the party!!

       

      They include house wine and red stripe beer on tap for our reception, however, if you drink wine, the house brand is not that spectacular. You can order wine for the tables, they just charge you for it. We ordered several bottles of Cassilero Diablo (its from Chile) and they charged us $25/per bottle, which I was fine with ( I think its 13 or 14 dollars here per bottle) I think it's a cash grab to pay $10 per person per hour for liquor, when you can roll to the lobby bar post reception, and you've paid all that money to come to an all inclusive resort for the week.

       

      My wedding favours...I will have to look into that for you....we had a bottle of Jamaica Rum Cream and a small grater cake (which is a Jamaican coconut cake with pink on the top!) delivered the day we arrived to the resort. We paid 300 dollars for 65 favours and they wrapped them in a clear plastic and tied a raffia bow on them with a thank you tag...I will find my contact...

       

      I also ordered hand fans as a favour, and had them personalized with our names and wedding date on them, I had my aunt place them on every seat for the ceremony, since it was pretty hot, even in December! The ladies at the resort move all of the speedo wearing old men out of the way, so you don't have to worry about having them in the background of your wedding pictures!!

      Hi Marlena - congrats on your December wedding! Do you have a couple photos of your ceremony site and reception that you wouldn't mind sharing please? Thanks! sarah

        Sarah,

        There are different sizes available in the email I sent you. It at least gives you the option of different prices as well.

            Hey ladies, I'm new to this board but have have read through MANY posts and it seems like everyone is very helpful. I'm getting married at the suites on 11/9/12 and I feel like I have so much to do. My latest stress is photography and invitations. I'm leaning toward Misha Earle for photography if she can customize the package a little... Maybe take out some of the aspects we don't need. Invitations, well I don't know, I really don't want to spend a lot but can't seem to find what I like. With a little less than 6 months to go- what else should I be working on? I haven't found a good timeline that's appropriate for destination weddings. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance.

                      Allie, how does pricing run for your company? Is there a website?
