    We're doing our receptions at the Aunt Ruby as well. We like the menu the best, and have read the good reviews on the food. Plus, I also like the idea of having a beach wedding and the reception close by. We'd like to do the the dancing and everything at Aunt Ruby, but unfortunately, the package shows you only get the space until 10:30pm. I know we can head to the disco afterward though, but the kids won't be able to join us. Our wedding is going to be pretty large, not til May 2011, but we're sending out over 100 invites. Not sure, but I think we'll do everything on the outside terrace.

      In comment to earlier discussion, I think I've found a photographer. He's a Jamaican, his name is Dean Clarke, and he does Jamaican weddings as well as destination weddings. His package seems pretty good, and he's willing to digitally edit all of the frames, and provide a DVD with all the privileges to make your own prints. He was a referral from a cousin of mine who once lived in Jamaica.

        I think a few brides have said that even though it it suppose to go until 1030pm it usually goes till like 11 or later! I am planning on having some cash on hand to 'extend' the hours where possible.

          Yes that is a good idea because several brides have said that they extended their time because dinner ran over or they were having such a good time dancing that the time slipped away.  Nicole did not seem to have any issues with it up to 11:30 if I am not mistaken.

            Hey Tina,

            No, I haven't seen any weddings set up.  I thought you were just talking about the overall decor and feel of the restaurants.  I do know that Lisa had her rehearsal dinner there and Ms. Smith is thinking about having her actual reception there.  Lisa is really sweet and she will answer any questions you have regarding that particular location.  I am having my dinner at the Gourmet and then we are moving on to the Jazz Room for the actual dance/reception.  Alot of people want to stay in one place and that is totally understandable so you have to think about what is best for you and your group.  We are only having a total of 25 people attending.

              Hi LadyD!

               

              I wanted to know if you could please post some pictures of your beautiful wedding?  I am really excited to see the finally result after hearing so much during the planning stages. My wedding is in November so I have a lot of final decisions to make a little time : ). 

               

              Thanks,

              Nikki

              Usually the dj is in charge of all of that, will they know to do those kinds of things? Do we have to tell them certain times when we want to do this stuff? Thanks for your help!
              Hey magz,

              I'm getting married in May as well!! I wasn't planning on going down to Jamaica before the wedding but there was an amazing seat sale, I couldn't pass up. So I will be going in a few weeks!

              I will be staying with family, but I plan on meeting with the wedding coordinator (Chic Events) and doing a day visit to the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach, Bellefield Estates, churches and any other potential vendors in the area (Montego Bay).

              We don't plan on getting married at the Iberostar but our guests will be staying there. Still, I will most likely meet with the coordinator there just in case we have a change of heart.

              I will take plenty pics and provide as much info as I can!!!

              :0)

                      Maybe I just have too many ideas and I cause myself constant confusion lol.  So if we get married on the beach at 4pm.  Take pics until about 530/6, the guest can migrate to the bars until dinner, then dinner from 630 to 830 and a beach party from 830 to 1130 does that sound about right?

                       

                      My fear with having a cocktail party is that most of my guest will stay with us at the beach to take pictures and miss the cocktail hour or some may want to freshen up a bit before dinner.  I mean is cocktail hour really necessarily if it's an all-inclusive and everyone can just hang out at the bar for a few drinks?  I guess I want to be a part of all of the fun lol...
