    Thanks for the info.  How did you co-ordinate have the outside photographer and makeup/hair people coming into the resort?  Is there a fee the resort charges to have these people come in?  Did you have to work it out or did they work it out themselves? I am very seriously thinking of using the photographer as it's a relief to hear you were pleased so far with them. Thanks for all your help... As my time draws near I may bother you a time or two more ;)

        We didn't have to pay the $300 vendor fee for the photographer because they booked a room for themselves at the resort at their own cost!  Can't beat that!

         

        For the makeup/hair artist... they were able to get access to the resort with an event pass of $70, but since they didn't stay for the wedding... it covered the cost of 2 of my guests for the ceremony/reception.  Saving us $$$$!  Same thing with our videographer, he was able to come in with an event pass as well, no vendor fee!  Wooohooo!

            How far out did you get in contact with your wedding planner? I'm getting married Jan 2012 and I really want to get in touch with my WC and my travel agent says it is too early??

              I probably started communicating 7-8 months out, but that was to make sure we got our main items... Ceremony Location, Ceremony Time, Reception Location and Entertainment (Steel Band, DJ, Zurielamaka, etc.).  All the rest can wait 2-4 months prior, depending how detailed you want to get.  But hey!  If you want to get in touch now, get in touch! :)

                  Thanks so much for sharing your review and pics BeachBridein11. You looked stunning!! I'm a new bride to the site getting married at Lady Hamilton June 23, 2012. I was also thinking of you using the steel band. Did you provide them with a play list or did they just play traditional Jamaican music?
