Tensing Pen Brides?

Recommended Posts

Congrats mrseyes! I'm sure you'll have a beautiful day! I'm sure the new WC will be of more help; unfortunately the old one turned me off with her nonchalant attitude. At least pretend you're as excited as I am for my wedding day even though you see dozens a year, lol!

Hi Ladies,

 

I just came back from a trip to negril and I am debating between Rockhouse and Tensing Pen. I plan to have about 80 guests, and I like both hotels, but Rockhouse's requirements turn me off! They require 27 rooms booked in order to host your wedding. Although I plan to have 80 guests, my cheapo family will def try to squeeze 4 to a room in as many rooms as possible, and since they only have 14 of the rooms priced between 120-150 a night and the rest, priced at $220 ( only two at this price)-350, I'm just not sure it can be done. i just sent an email to Shanique at Tensing Pen. Hopefully, they are more flexible

Tensing Pen vs Catcha Falling StarTensing Pen vs Catcha Falling StarTensing Pen vs Catcha Falling StarTensing Pen vs Catcha Falling StarTensing Pen vs Catcha Falling Star

 

UGH!!!

 

All of the hidden fees at Tensing are killing me.

 

Shanique sends me the following confusing message:

 

1. It is my understanding that there are additional fees per person:

$10/per person for a set up fee and $7/ per chair cover. Is this correct? Should I be adding an additional $17 per person?

 

The costing for the set up and break up fee is subject to change depending on the final number of your wedding party.

The costing for the chairs, chair covers and bows is US$7 per person.

I can tell you that the Tensing Pen is beautiful. I just went and looked at the wedding location. It is awesome. This place is the most relaxing place I have ever been.

We are having dinner at Catch a Falling Star tonite. I will post my thoughts about the location later tonite.

I visisted both places last week. I was in Negril for a wedding and figured I'd kill two birds with one stone. Rockhouse was my first pic, but too damn expensive. Now I'm choosing between Tensing and Catcha. Catcha is, so far, the cheapest, but I don't think it will be as nice. Let me know what you think! If you see Marvette or Andrea at Catcha tell them Lisa ( the bride andrea has been emailing), wants your opinion :).

Here are my thoughts. I think catcha is very nice. The food was the best I have eaten in Jamaica. I did not see the ceremony site. I think a reception by their pool would be beautiful. However, if it were my wedding, I would choose the tensing pen. It has a rustic beauty that is untouchable.

Thanks for your opinion! I'm doing the math tomorrow ( once I have all of the prices) and will make a decision based on that. If when it comes down to it, tensing is not so much more, i will go that route. Besides, Tensing can hold 80 people, so I can invite a few more. Catcha can hold 60 tops...so i was really cutting people out.

LisaAndDre, just be careful of the hidden fees at Tensing. I found this out from another bride that used to be on this forum and had some issues with Tensing. She was the one that alerted me to a $10 set up fee per guest- made me wonder what else they would be charging for! I'd rather know up front what I'm getting into...Rockhouse doesn't even charge for day passes, and if the rooms are split between 3-4 people the price isn't that bad at all! Just be sure to check everything out.

Thanks Queen Diva. I've already factored in the extra fees, and tensing is still cheaper than Rockhouse. The whole Day pass issue I didn't seem to run into for negril cliffside hotels, but now i'm worried. I will ask Shanique about that too. Thanks!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
