    Thinking of having someone not with the wedding party/guests coordinate things to make sure they run smooth .. any ROR brides have someone from the outside?

      My TA is a DW specialist, and helped me coordinate the wedding stateside. I was really concerned about what would happen once we actually got to Jamaica so we seriously considered flying our TA out to coordinate. I am so glad we did not spend the extra $ to do this though! Chandlyn and Nikki along with some staff, did an exceptional job. I gave basic instruction at our meeting, and they started setting up way earlier than I expected!! I just had my 2 SILs check in to make sure it was set up right and helped a little...

      I say, save the cash and put it towards something that is really important to you!!

I'm trying to talk my FI into having everyone come to the reception in all white ...... what time did you start your reception?

          I had a few people (not on this site) recommend hiring someone else because they said the resort planners in general were sooo busy but I have heard such great things about Chandlyn and I feel like this is her job so I am just going to go with it. save the money for something fun on the honeymoon!

            I agree, after reading all the post I am going to stick with Chandlyn and Nikki.

              My reception was *supposed* to start around 6:30 but in all reality, it was closer to 7. My guests just hung out at the lobby bars. We did first dance, father/daughter dance, and sisters/brothers dance and then ate.

              The time gap will FLY, trust me!!! My guests stayed busy and we had to take a bunch of pics. I amost wish we had had our wedding at 3 rather than 4, but it was all good :)

              Your wedding is 2 days before my 1 year anniversary! We had PERFECT weather, so sending that luck your way for next year!!!

                if you are looking for an outside wedding coordinator I would suggest looking at
