I'd say the photographer is up to you, it's not expected for independant ones but if you felt they earned it then go for it. We tipped the WC's. Kimoya and Vanassa were phenomenal and I saw them working their butts off every day of the week. I tipped $60 to the 2 of them (I went to their office the day after the wedding, there is usually one of them there each morning until 1pm)

We chose a photographer that owns her own company, but she is still working hard ( i hope) hahah so i am confused on whether or not to tip these people, and if so.. how much should we tip? Obviously the minister and bar staff etc.. DJ and what not are no brainers... but i am a bit torn on the WC and photographer.. so any insight would be very helpful!! Thanks ladies!

To privatize or not to privatize?? Hi ladies! I have been back and forth for months on whether or not I want to pay the extra dough to do a private reception.  I prefer not to but I am wondering if the flow of the reception gets thrown off when transferring to the disco.  Thoughts??

BEAUTIFUL VIDEO!  They really did such an amazing job!

 

Do you or does anyone else know of an Jamaican video company that does videos like this one?   Now I really want one but our budget is limited...

Hey brides! So i have this idea that i HAVE to accomplish lol.. I would love nothing more to have a Jamaican/reggae singer sing as I walk down the isle.. Its a beautiful song that will really bring the island feel to the ceremony. Does anyone know how I could go about finding a singer? I know there are bands and steel drummers that perform, but i havent heard anything about an actual SINGER. Please let me know ladies!

 

Also, we are getting married on a Saturday, and was really hoping to have a DJ at our reception to play music for our guests to dance & have fun to. But i am now learning that there is a beach party on Saturday nights, which would prevent me from having a DJ? Does this only apply if our reception is on the beach? What about a private reception at Aunt Rubys, could I have a DJ there?

 

Any info would be greatly appreciated... and just a note to all the brides that have uploaded pictures, I have yet to see ONE picture that hasnt made me want to cry/laugh/smile/cream from excitement, you all look so beautiful!!!

& also, I am looking for a good DJ that is familiar with island music and might be able to incorporate Haitian music into our reception (my fiance and his family are Haitian so we want to play music to acknowledge both of our cultures... any suggestions?

 

& any suggestions on a good videographer? So far I really enjoy Zuluspro, Misha Earle, Sungold, and Stacey Clarke for photographer, but we want this whole thing videotaped too!!!

Thank you both so much.  We are really happy with it. There may be a local videographer that does the same work, however, we really only knew of maybe two of videographers in Jamaica.  We found them in the vendor review section of BDW.

Kinsellak 1,

 

My wedding date is April 13, 2013 which is also a Saturday, at the Suites. I am having a cocktail hour/reception with a DJ. I confirmed already with Nicole. I am assuming they have more that one DJ available.

Was the bonfire close enough to one of the hotel bars or do you recommend spending the extra money and having the bar right there?

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I had a lot to do at work after we returned from the honeymoon. We got married at the IRHS on January 9, 2012. It was beautiful. There were hiccups.  I will proivde a full review when I get pictures from the photographer (I think it works best that way) but am happy to answer any questions people have. We had a rehearsal dinner at Aunt Rubys and bonfire the night before, and a beach wedding with cocktails at the Moon Dance Walk (Jazz Bar) and reception at the Cabalash.

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
