Does anybody know anything about upgrading to the presidential suite at the beach? Do you not know until you check in or can your TA request it?

As a side note to the ladies that want crystals on the huppa make sure to have some way to fasten them down.  I would say that most early evenings there was a steady breeze and those crystals will be flying and tangling in the breeze

When I was there in March I had also experienced the same thing. However one of the workers told us March & April is there high wind(sailing season they call it). I am planning on preparing on having backup with hair if it's wind but thanks for the reminder with crystals.

Hi Sjay, look to Missee17's review ("Resort Reviews" section)...She said that her lanterns were installed enven though she didn't rent out the restaurant:

 

..."Reception:

We had our reception dinner at Aunt Rubyâ€s Steakhouse. We didnâ€t rent out the restaurant because we didnâ€t have 50 people, but that actually worked out for us money wise. The décor looked amazing. Nicole and her crew did a wonderful job. They even put up my 12 lanterns I brought even though we didnâ€t rent out the restaurant. I was so pleased on how everything looked."

 

Hope this can help!

OMG! Papoue, thank you SO much, this is the post/review I've been looking for! You have no idea how happy I am right now - thankyouthankyouthankyou!!

No Luck.  Maybe you can try some that you posted. That's so frustrating. 

 

I'm surprised FF was higher.  I honestly think it depends who you talk to down there.  Nothing ever seems consistent after reading posts from other brides on here.  I think everyone just makes up their own prices.  I hope it all works out for you.  Try to enjoy your last few days, I'd definitely take into consideration the lack of communication when tipping these people!! Do they forget that they work for us? (not to be rude, but it's true)

I have been searching but with no luck - but Papoue just found the post I had been looking for!! (See above). I'm not an unreasonable bride - if they have done for one, why can't they do for others? I actually came up with another idea to meet them halfway - use some (but not all) of the lanterns at dinner, IF there is a way to use the rest at our beach cocktail party. I know there really aren't any trees, but if we're set up right by the pool bar we could hang some there and along the wall that skirts the beachfront. We'll see what happens!

 

I got the sense that FF is a much smaller operation. Tai appears to have some items on hand to rent out, whereas FF had to outright purchase some items so they jacked up the rental rate to offset the purchase costs. You are right - the only thing consistent is that nothing is consistent! LOL

 

Oh believe me, there are a few tips that are hanging in the balance right now. We will decide based on what happens in the next six days.

And you're not rude, they do work for us, we have hired/rented/booked them for our weddings. So much to pay for, so many charges on top of things we've technically already paid for...so we're fully entitled to expect good customer service and that they will deliver on what we are paying for.

Update! We will have lanterns at our semi-private at Aunt Ruby's!  msnparty.gif

 

I presented my argument (via email) to Nicole, and she wrote back saying they would accommodate the request. Yahoo! and phew!

 

(I do wonder if the PR Manager who I emailed about this and another issue had anything to do with the decision. I'm not sure as I haven't heard from her today but if that's what it took, it was well worth it.)

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!  
    • Visit Jamaica and check out Montego Bay Photographer for your family vacation or Destination Wedding photography!!! https://www.montegobayphotographer.com
    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
