    Your cake makes me laugh because it reminds me of our own terribly-botched wedding cake.  We had the resort do ours, we picked one of their 5 standard cakes and made minimal changes, and it was uuuuuuuuuuuuuu-gly!  You should submit your cake to www.cakewrecks.com

     

    Thanks!  Wow I've never heard of that cakewrecks.com.  Our cake would definitely be a candidate, LOL!

      Yes, we were up-graded to the presidential suite when we checked in.  I think it depends on whether or not its available, so its not guaranteed, but we were hoping to get it :)

       

      No, there was no extra fee for the beach party because it was where we had the dancing for the reception.  The area we used is right in front of Aunt Ruby's, and if you rent the restaurant out for your reception then you can pretty much do whatever you want with the beach area in front of it.

        WOW! Your wedding was amazing (and the cake was hilarious!).  Thank you so much for the wonderful information. 

         

        I just joined a couple days ago, and have been struggling with deciding on a resort in Jamaica...I think you have sealed the deal for me!  The details you provided are so so helpful.  We are also expecting a large group (150) and I was very worried about accommodating such a large group, but you have eased my mind. 

         

        I was wondering about using a TA...I have been looking through some posts here, and it seems like it would be helpful for such a large group.  I am also located in Atlanta, and was wondering if that is where the TA you used is located?  And is it necesary to have a TA in the same city?  I really have never used one so I have no clue how they work:)

         

        Thanks again for all the great info! I just emailed Nicole and hope to get some information regarding pricing and packages and such soon.  I hope you don't mind if I contact you again if I have some more questions:) I really appreciate the help and guidance from everyone here!


        Hi Sharan, welcome to the forum!  For a large group I would definitely recommend using a TA.  Ours was able to get a deal for our guests that was better than what the hotel was offering online, and also she kept up with who had booked...that was really helpful because otherwise we wouldn't have had any idea.  Our TA is located in Davie, FL and we didn't have any issues, so I don't think it matters if they're not in the same city.  Let me know if you have any questions about how the process works...I don't normally use a TA either, but I'm really glad we did.  There are a lot of them out there though and not all of them are good, so it's a good idea to do some research before you decide to go with one.

         

        Feel free to contact me with any more questions - Glad to help!

         

        Lisa

          Hi mrsdeloatch2b, We got a good hotel deal with our travel agent and posted the rates and TA contact info on our wedding website.  We didn't post any air and hotel packages because we had people traveling from different places, and also we didn't find any deals that would be cheaper than booking hotel and airfare separately.  We booked our room about 8 months in advance because that was when we signed up with our TA, and we booked our flights about 3 months from the wedding.

            That's great! I think aunt Ruby's it is. That you for all of your info. Your reviews and pictures were beautiful. Once more thing, how were you able to have your wedding on the staircase inside? They don't advertise that in the package, did you just ask.

              The lobby staircase is mentioned in my package.  I will take a look when I get home to see where I saw it.  I think they must have began offering it after Lisa's wedding and the rain she experienced.

                I didn't see it in my package. They only offered the Beach, Gazebo, Lazy River or Lobby Terrace. I will probably choose the beach, but I was thinking of the staircase if that was an option.

                  Lisa,

                   

                  Hi lady!  Can you do me a favor and send Any Pearson's information.  I have one couple left to book their trip and I think this will be the best way for them to go. 

                   

                  Thanks,

                  Nikki

                   

                  my email is nt31@earthlink.net

                      It rained the day of the wedding but I hated the alternate rain location, so I asked Nicole if we could do it on the staircase.  At first she said she didn't think we could because they had only done it a few times with a small group, but when I suggested using the landing as the alter so we would have more room below she said OK. So it sounds like they've added it as one of the options now...that's great because it turned out beautifully.
