    Does anyone have experience with using Negril Jamaica Wedding Planners? I have received an email from Ari there, and they sound pretty good but I just wanted to see if there are any reviews out there!

    I am not sure if I am posting in the right area...hopefully I am!

    thanks for all the help!!

      I have worked with Ari on many occasions and have found her to be highly professional and organised. Even so she is also very friendly and down to earth. I highly recommend her......

          When planning my wedding, I did a lot of research on Negril.com - Negril Jamaica and Ari is pretty active on the Negril message boards. Although we didn't use a planner ourselves, from what I've seen on the board, she seems to know her stuff.

                I have just returned from my wedding in Negril, April 1, 2010 and used Ari and now call her Ari-The-Awesome! Ladies, take my word for it - no one can match her skills. I had previously booked at The Caves and despite 2 trips there to meet their on-site wedding planner and multiple emails and calls at my expense we got no where, after more than 9 months - we cancelled! Started all over again at a new location - Villas Sur Mer and with Ari. I have so much respect for this woman. All other planners can only dream of reaching her ability. First and foremost - communication. It's key and she's amazing. Sometimes up to 10 emails a day and called me at her cost when she felt the need. She took on our wedding with short notice and organized the location; minister and license; caterers; bartender, amazing photographer - Misha Earle and DJ - Gemini and a live broadcast for our family back home to watch our wedding live! She helped with the florist; makeup; custom linens; decor beyond what I brought down, etc. etc. She drove me around when I arrived, attended the rehearsal, co-ordinated the entire set up the day of and even dealt with a sudden downpour minutes before 42 guests arrived. Kept me calm, kept us on track, made all look spectacular and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I have more to say than allowed in this space but I assure you it will be the best decision you've made after deciding to get married! I have extensive event planning background and assure you that this woman knows her stuff, handles all the behind the scenes details that will make or break your event. My rating is based on North American standards not just Jamaican. I put alot of time and effort and research into my planning and could not have pulled off this amazing wedding without her keen eye and attention to everything. She'll be 10 steps ahead of you and will truly take on your day like her life depended on it. Her rates are very reasonable and easily budgeted. My family and friends all say they don't want to bother going to another wedding as ours was so different and fun - how's that for accolades and Ari earned them. I wish you all the best but promise you'll have it if you use her

                    The company that can broadcast your wedding live back home is www.realnegril.com. They'll give you a copy of the broadcast on DVD also, very inexpensive and a great keepsake.

                      Does anyone know roughly how much a ceremony and reception costs for about 40 ppl? I've emailed them but they've only told me how much the basic package costs. Still waiting to hear about how much everything else is.

                      58 people booked...and counting!!!
