    When I want the WC to call me asap, my TA will call her. And I get a call within 48hours.

      Hi Ms. Tiff,

      Congratulations to you too!!

      Re flowers, I was told we can do our own? I am not 100% sure if its because our wedding is during the transition between PB and MS, but I am rolling with it, they quoted me $75-150p centerpiece, $30p table linens. Also getting 10rooms booked for 4 nights helps in the costs. (15$pp) The per person amount is pretty consistent per service. The nice thing is the location is free.

      We decided to fly our photographer in. I found him through the Wedding Photojournalists Assn. Association of Wedding Photojournalists - WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALISM

      Beaches allows you to bring a photog is s/he is a guest (staying at least 2 nights). He is paying airfare and we pay his room. Not cheap but the one consistent I get from brides is the importance of photog. I love his stuff (Jeremy Igo out of Charlotte)

        Alison!

        You may want to book your photog for 3 nights instead of two- usually it's considerable less expensive !

                    I took a peek because normally Sandals/ Beaches will not apply any promotions to a 2 night stay-full rack rate, but the sale/promo prices will apply to a 3 night stay, so the 3 night stay has always been less expensive.

                    At this time the 2 nights in a Grand lux Beachfront ( the lower room cats were sold out except for the one just below this category) is $ 2416/ 3 nights is $ 2355.60

                    The only thing I can think of is that he booked the 3 nights between promotions so that the he paid full rack - he may want to take a look and see if he can get it for less, especially if you are footing the bill!!
