A non-Resort Jamaican Wedding
Posted 21 June 2010 - 07:11 PM
Our wedding is a little over 100 days out right now and so far these are the vendors I have booked with great pricing/recommendations:
Flowers - Floral Fantasies
Cake - Margarete - referral by Rose @ Floral Fantasies
Reception Rentals - Chic Events - Sadeki
DJ - Kevan - Jamaica DJ (on FB)
Villa - Paradise Resorts - www.prmsite.com (they included the minister and document handling)
Tent - I went ahead and used my Villa's recommendation on this
One way I saved a lot of money but am ensuring success is by bringing in my own caterer and photographer. I am lucky that a close friend is a trained chef with amazing skills, so I was able to barter with him. I also have a BFF with a photographer for a husband so I traded a free 4 night stay at one of our villas for my pics.

I too am doing a non-resort wedding. I am having my wedding at Hibiscus Lodge Hotel in Ocho Rios. I am using Wedding Planner Plus to do all my stuff. Michelle, the wedding coordinator/owner, has package deals with the hotel and it includes everything but she also can customize the package which is what she did for us. Some things I prefer to do on my own like my wedding programs. I'm really in search of a good welcome letter for my guests. So many of the posts on here only have welcome letters referring to all-inclusive resorts. I'm really looking for something that mentions places to go to within town and local restaurants. I could just put it together myself I guess, but being that the wedding is only 3 weeks away, I'm kind of lazy. Well, good luck with everything and hope all goes well.

My cake lady is Margaret Myrie - Mommy's Wedding Cakes.
Also, after I went with Chic events, I found this company had much better pricing but could not find any references - Sumar rentals.

How was your neice's experience with Wedding Belles? I'm getting married at Rockhouse and was considering using them to help plan.
