      Hey Marirocks,

       

      Thanks for all the info, we really appreciate it! And for letting us know about the florist, yet another worry set aside. :)

       

      I also noticed that you went with the same photographer as us. I've read nothing but good reviews about Michael & Pascal. Do they always work together these brothers, are will we only get one of the two?

      I was SO VERY IMPRESSED with the florest, steller job! Don't worry. I only wish I would have tipped. I didn't get the flowers personally and we ran out of cash by the end of the night. I guess I'll just try and send as much business that way.

       

      Here are my A's

       

      Florest

        that's a great question. I personally was trying to contain my costs however if you have a bigger budget ask for both. There are a lot of advantages of having two photographers but if you can't spring for the extra cash having just one is great. Now everyone has digital cameras with great quality so I designed a shutterfly website and had everyone upload their images there. Almost everyone did so that gave us all an opportunity to pull and print. The professional pics plus everyone elses helped capture everything. My sister took video so I'm excited to see that one. Enjoy every second ladies don't fuss about the small things, once everyone is there the details won't matter.

         

        Best of luck!

          We didn't reserve the entire restaurant. Since our party was over the recommended upstairs capacity we had the downstairs. I don't know why anyone would mind if people are admiring your party. We met this great couple from Sweden at the bar. Its a compliment personally. I am sure Mayte and her staff do an excellent job of directing all the guests upstairs so you'll never have anyone jumping on the dance floor but hopefully if they do it will just add to the funny wedding stories.

           

          You can see by my pictures there was almost no one at the beach and no crowd at the restaurant. A thousand times better than the hotel wedding, I felt so sorry for those girls.

           

          xoxo

            ok. so we paid 300 bucks, don't know what that covers but the prices are flat so just ask for that one.

             

            yes, the music is like trance like tribal. so great. just sit back and enjoy. way better in my perspective than a trio or cigar roller. If I had someone elses budget I'd get all three but its a recession.

             

            Good Luck!!

                  I have 50 days until my wedding and we leave in 44 days! Yikes it is scary to think it is coming up so fast! I was just wondering what some of you other ladies are doing in your planning since I know some of you have weddings coming up fast.

                   

                  I have been working with Mayte to finalize our food options for the wedding and she has some pictures for the decoration. We are having our ceremony at the Majestic Colonial so I have most of that organized with the resort. Photographer is booked and I am sending him his payment this week, vacation is paid for, bags are being made by my bridesmaid for the OOT bags and I have bubba kegs, anti-bac gel, and face cloths so far to go in them, rings are bought, passports are renewed and ceremony script is being worked on.

                   

                  Things I know I have left to do are gifts for bridesmaids, gift for parents, purchase a sand ceremony kit, jewellery for myself to wear, make-up(wedding is a excuse to go shopping for myself!), and maybe some more things for the OOT bags.

                   

                  How is everyone else doing with their planning?

                    I'm wondering about the DJ for the reception at Jellyfish... can anyone share their experiences with the DJ, what he/she was like, what kind of music was played, etc?? I was surprised to hear the DJ only costs $600. Any insight/comments would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.

                      I was told by my photographer that he went to a wedding at the Jellyfish where they hired the resort DJ. He said the party wasn't that great and he recommended spending the extra money on DJ Mannia. Others have said on here that the DJ was ok as long as you gave a pretty good list of songs you wanted played.
