Beaches Negril wedding coordinator no help!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am getting married June 18th 2011

And week ago I had a conversation with the WC in Miami and I must say that she was no help. I choose the beautiful beginning's package and would like to customize it, I mean i know that it is a resort and they have different packages that they offer but it is my day and i still want things a certain way, now according to some of threads that have been posted some people have changed things or upgraded how they pleased but when I asked her she kinda blew it off, and wanted to sell me the other packages. I also read on here that the IPOD dock is available, so i emailed her about it to find out how much they charge and she stated that it is not, and that i have the choice of a band or DJ. I really dont know why I am getting different answers. Any suggestions on what i should do

I got that same sales push too.  I'm getting married at Sandals and am dealing with Amy the WC in Miami.  Initially she tried to sell me on the Vision in White package with the full 3 hr reception even though I told her that we didn't want any of that.  I finally just said I'd think about it and let the whole subject drop. 

I read about a photography promo package being offered to 2010 brides if booked by a certain date.  When I inquired about extending that promo to me, being that my wedding is only 2 days into 2011, I was swiftly denied without so much as an apology.

In sticking with the BB wedding, I asked about getting an arch/canopy/chuppa on the beach for the ceremony and was told it would cost $600 (for 15-20 minutes)!

 

Not huge deals in hindsight, but I was a bit perturbed at the time.  After reading a lot on this board and the Facebook page, I've learned it's a little challenging to customize the wedding packages due to the Martha Stewart trademark but Sandals is beginning to offer more options.  Since you still have 10+ months until your wedding, there's probably a good chance they will have even more options than what they have now.

 

Are you working with a TA?  It seems like sometimes they can and do get information prior to it being released to the public.  In fact, I think there is a flower catalog that won't be released on Sandals' website until September but some TA's who specialize in Sandals/Beaches Weddingmoons have already received it.  Or if you prefer to handle things yourself, you can just keep checking in with the WC in Miami.  Sooner or later she'll get the hint that you're not going to buy anything you don't want.  Also, the WC's probably prioritize the weddings that are coming up sooner rather than focusing on us who are still months away.  Not to say we're any less important but lots can change on their end in 6 months.

 

Good luck!  If you're anything like me, you just want to get the details squared away.  I've had to relax a bit over the past few months!!  cool.gif

Thanks Lea

 

I just emailed a TA that i have read  a lot of people on here talk about (Jennifer),  so hopefully things will turn out great as other brides have described,  and about us not being on top of the WC's list  ( or even the bottom), I put my deposit down back in April and received the email that she would be calling soon, i had to keep calling before i even got a chance to speak with anyone so there is no way I can continue planning like this.

You are correct about a good TA getting info first :)  I know my TA sent me the new floral catalog for Beaches T&C a few weeks ago and I don't even know if it's been released at all yet to the public. I love my TA :)

Ask if you can get a different WC?  I am working with Chloe and she is out of Montego Bay.  She is super helpful and very quick to respond when I email.  She has not been very pushy at all.  She of course if giving me the same over priced quotes I have been reading about on here and she also indicates that they have strict guidelines thanks to Martha Stewart but you can get around or tweak some things.  I go the same $600 quote for an arch on the beach - yeeshta!  $35 for orchid hair flowers, $74 for orchid bridesmaid bouquet, $55 make-up application, and just so you know their mailer states the steel drum BAND is $600 but I am getting a steel drum PLAYER for 1hr for $250 - worth it to me.  They do have a flower brochure - no prices of course but if anyone is interested you can PM me and I will email it to ya.  My WC sent it to my TA (who is fabuous!).  My WC also emailed me pics of the ceremony site options for Beaches in Negril.  Best of luck ladies.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
