Thats really good since January is considered "high season."  How far in advance did you book?  I received quotes from my TA for early December 2012 and the prices are really expensive 1900+ w/o taxes.  My FI and I are really worried now because that is not what we wanted our guests to pay :(

That is an amazing deal for the suites.  I have not been able to get a quote within that price range.  Every quote has been 1900+ excluding taxes :s

I would just shoot them an email out linning your itenerary. You dont need the final details sheet..  This is what i did and found they had certain times for dinner etc, which was no big deal but then i knew at least as i went forwrd planning i knew and any suprises should be minimal.

Do you recommend emailing Nicole with our requests now? Is it best to use the final details sheet? I'm thinking it might be as it's in a format she and Tiffany are very familiar with.

 

I'd prefer to send our requests in sooner then later in case there are questions or requests that can't be met for whatever reason. It would give us a chance to make alternate choices early on (if needed) rather than plan for something that we find out at the 11th hour that we can't do.

 

I'd appreciate any guidance in this matter - thanks in advance!

 

Oh, and if we should start using the final details form now, would someone be so kind to share it with me? Thanks!

We were bad, and just put them in our luggage, knowing that it might get taken away.  We got it form the dollar store and took our chances.  Luckily, nothing happened.  I don't know where you would be able to buy them in Jamaica.  I would try asking Tai Flora (although their prices may be high)

I'm finding the same rates and feeling the same way BrideMB. We purposely chose shoulder season for better rates - 2K+ is way over what we want our guests to pay too. I think we just have to wait it out and keep getting quotes. We're prepared to just forget the group booking and go with individual bookings if the rates are better once they come out in the coming months.

Yes we were thinking of doing the same thing.  I hate having to tell my guests what the rates are to date, but on another token I also feel bad not giving them an exact answer until closer to the time.  What a stress!

I just received an email from a TA stating we can't have our wedding at the Grand unless 50% of our guests stay at the Grand as well. The info I got from the grand wc states:

 

Our wedding package is from 2 up to 10 people.

There is an additional charge of US$20 per person
Only eligible to those that booked Grand-5 rooms for 3+ nights or Grand Oceanfront one room for 7+
nights
(Including tax and service charge)
 
Can anyone clarify? TIA

Yes this is true... it actually says in the 2012 paperwork sent out, I believe it's 90% of your guest must stay. You have to have a minimum of atleast 5 rooms, like if you had a small wedding with only 3 rooms book you would not qualify for the free wedding. But if you have a larger wedding with 50 guests and only 5 rooms book at the Grand but the rest at the other properties, I do not think they will allow that.

    • 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.
