Lizzdee,

Congratulations!  You looked beautiful!  Thanks for all of the feedback - I'm have the extact same set up as you did - 30 guests, 3 hour reception, 4 p.m. wedding.  Thanks also about mentioning the spa letting you swap the mani/pedi for another service.  I have this service booked - but since I do gel nails, I won't need it.  Can't wait to see your photos on facebook!

I also wanted to say something about out OTT bags-----

 

We got nice big beach bags, which everyone used! They were a big hit...as far as what was in them, I did do a Wedding Weekend Survival Kit, the hits were definitly Tums, Gold Bond, and Sunscreen...Do not even bother with Aloe, Shampoo, Conditioner, or Lotion, as each room comes with a nice size bottle of these....

 

We also did Essie Turquoise and Caicos Nail polish, with a nail file, nail clipper, and nail polish remover pad....Everyone loved these!! Yes, the polish is pricey (got mine on amazon) but they were a huge hit!!! Everyone had turquoise nails on the wedding day, it was a super fun, cute favor!

 

And lastly in the bags we put bags of mixed chocolate candy, and snacks, like goldfish, granola bars, trail mix, and cookies, which everyone was snacking on.....Since there is no room service is was great to have some snacks in the room, and people were also bringing them down to the beach to snack on.

 

Oh, and also in the kids bags i put beach toys that i found at the dollar store, this was a huge hit for my almost 3 yr old nephew,

 

We didnt go nuts with the bags, nothing personalized, no koozies or pens and paper, no room key holders ect..and everyone loved them! So I just wanted to let you guys know sometimes less is more, my guests loved the bags, were super grateful :) Let me know if you have any qustions, I'd love to help.

Hi!

We also  go back on a week ago.  My experience was little different than Lizzdee.  We eloped with my 8 year old son.

We also stayed in the CV.  We were in the Caicos room on the 3rd floor.  We had a small view of the ocean.  It was perfect for us.

I agree that you do no need to spend the money on the room.  We were never in it.  This resort was perfect for all of us.

My son loved going to the camp and we were able to have some alone time as well as family time.

Ivette was our planner at the resort.  She was great.  We were were married on the beach.  My son gave me away, he was also

the ring bearer and best man.  He was awesome. 

I had my hair and makeup done by Shenque Perfections and loved it.  She is very nice and quick. 

Our pastor was also great.  He was both serious and funny.  The script was not religious at all.  We did a sand ceremony to make sure my son was included.  I brought my own script.  The one they have does not include a child. 

We did not have a reception, only the 1/2 hr cocktail hour.  This was plenty for us.  We did have dinner at Schooners that night.  Personally

I like Barefoot by the Sea better. 

Since we eloped, I did get the small package of prints and the video.  Bond was our photographer.  Surprisingly they came out good.

I also hired Ileana from TI.  I loved going around the island for the photographs. 

We loved everything about our wedding and trip.  We are hoping to go back next year. 

 

Here are some pictures from the resort.

Melissa43,

 

You look beautiful!  It sounds like you had a great time too :)

 

Thanks for sharing about your wedding.  I have to say I've been obsessed with Barefoot By the Sea since I ran across it on the Beaches T&C site, and your confirmation helps me make some easy choices :)

 

Wendy

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
