    HI la2424,

     

    I'm getting married in a few weeks at MDC... I'm so excited and I'm just working on making sure everything is done and ready. I've been in the planning process for a year so I can't wait to see how it all comes together. I'm happy to report back after the wedding to let everyone know how it went and provide any tips for future MDC brides. Regarding your questions....

     

    1.  We are packing suitcases with all of our welcome bags and goodies, favors, etc. We booked all of the rooms at MDC so we have a lot to pack. It looks like we'll have at least 3-4 large suitcases full of wedding stuff and our clothes, etc. Several friends and family have offered to take a suitcase for us so once we are all packed we'll see if we can manage to take it all ourselves and if not we'll have a friend or two take a suitcase for us. 

     

    2.  We were thinking of doing a group excursion but I think we are just going to do an informal trip to Ricks for those that want to go but I know Kerry is happy to arrange any type of excursion you want to do.

     

    3. We are doing a welcome dinner on Friday night (we get married on Saturday). We aren't planning anything fancy for Friday and we are just having guests order off of the menu at Annies for the dinner meal. We are getting a steel drum band for an hour on Friday night to play at the welcome dinner. I'll let you know how they are (Kerry is arranging it, I'm sure they'll be great). We are using a DJ for the ceremony music and then we having PACE band for three hours during the wedding reception.

     

     

    I'm not sure if that helps but good luck planning and I'm happy to answer any questions that may be helpful to you.

      We are doing all inclusive at MDC and we have around 65 guests staying at MDC and about 12 staying at outside resorts. I'll be able to give you more info after our wedding which is like 3 weeks away regarding final costs. etc :)

            Hi everyone I will first start off by saying that I have never posted on any blog before but I felt the need to post here. I used this site a lot to help me plan my amazing wedding and figured it was only fair to post all of my feedback too! We just got married on Saturday 2/23 at MDC. We did a full resort takeover and had extra guests at RockHouse. Total of 74. The first thing I will say. Is totally relax. You will not be disappointed. Everything at MDC is perfect. I am writing this from my iPad in a hammock in Jamaica right now. We made the poor decision to leave MDC and go to couples swept away for 4 days after the wedding. Not that couples is not amazing but it is hard to go from MDC as the bride and go anywhere. I promise to posta full review with photos when I get back but feel the need to just tell everyone to RELAX. I was nervous too but it will be the experience of a lifetime. I cried when we got to couples because I missed all the people atMDC so much! Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns. I will gladly help if I can. But one last thing- if you are on the fence about wedding venue- don't be- I have seen a couple other ceremonies at other Jamaican venues and I promise you this is the best! Promise to write more soon and very jealous of all you MDC brides to be. Lucky!

                  Hi everyone! I have been reading this thread for months and I finally decided to respond because an issue has been brought up. I am getting married at MDC on May 3, 2014. I have been speaking with Kerry and her comment stuck out..

                  "PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WE DO NOT ALLOW OFFSITE STYLIST/ MAKE-UP ARTIST ONSITE. IF YOU MUST HAVE AN OFFSITE STYLIST/ MAKE-UP ARTIST THEN A FEE OF $125 PLUS 10% TAX & 10% SERVICE CHARGE."

                  Is anyone familiar with this policy. I am pissed because I specifically asked Kim if there was a fee for offsite vendors and she said no. This statement is also not included in any of the information brochures on the website so where is it coming from? I have already booked Rashel Edwards to do my makeup and there is no way I am paying an extra fee just to have her come and do it on top of the amount she charges. I really dont want to feel like they are trying to get over on me. Have any past brides used an offsite makeup artist and had to pay a fee?

                    Hello Brides! I have been reading this thread for months and finally decided to post because an issue has come about. Im getting married at MDC on May 3, 2014 and am in the beginning stages of booking vendors and communicating with Kerry. One of her statements stood out-

                    "PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WE DO NOT ALLOW OFFSITE STYLIST/ MAKE-UP ARTIST ONSITE. IF YOU MUST HAVE AN OFFSITE STYLIST/ MAKE-UP ARTIST THEN A FEE OF $125 PLUS 10% TAX & 10% SERVICE CHARGE."

                    I am pissed because I asked Kim if there was a fee for offsite vendors and she said no. Because of this I already booked my makeup artist Rashel Edwards. I refuse to pay a hidden fee on top of what im already paying for the service. This statement is not even included in their information brochure on the website so where is it coming from? I dont want to feel like im getting nickled and dimed. Have any past brides who used an offsite makeup stylist had this issue?
