ROR Ceremony ! Help!!

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry Kerrij for all that you're going through - but (if you don't mind) could you PLEASE tell me what in the world you're paying $700 for?? And for just 7 guests?? Something doesn't sound right...

 

Also, can someone explain how the flower upgrades work? Do I contact Jan's Bridal and Flowers myself and set everything up (what I want, how much, wedding date for delivery, etc.) or do I do all of that through Chandlyn. Also, If I'm just doing the free package and decide to go outside for my flowers, will Chandlyn let me add or upgrade something else since I'm not using those sucky Martha Stewart purple flowers?

I contacted Jan's Bridal and Flowers through her website [http://www.jansflowersjamaica.com/] and one of her associates responded within a day. We then communicated via e-mail including discussing the date, colors, type of arrangements, etc. You do not need to go through Chandlyn to make the arrangements; in fact, Chandlyn will suggest Tai Floral. I've read on this site that other brides added/upgraded other things because they did not use some of the items in the free package. I am planning to ask for better flowers on the free cake and rose petals instead of the free flowers. Just ask for what you want. In addition to Jan's Bridal & Flowers, I've also found that Norma with Lee's Tours & Taxi has wonderful vendors that she works with for cakes, flowers, etc. Norma will coordinate between you and the vendor to get what you want and have it delivered to the resort. If you have the time, I would certainly shop around. Good luck!

Awesome info girls thanks! I'm waiting for quotes from Jan's so will let you know. I got the free package and I'm hoping to change the free bouquet to better flowers for the gazebo. I have seen they use some white tule (sp?) and birds of paradise. Red totally clashes with my colors so don't want to use them.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
