Any September 2011 Jamaica brides on here?

Recommended Posts

Our wedding is now 4 months away from today!! Just wondering have you guys booked a florist yet? My hotel (Iberostar Rose Hall Suites), is contracted with Ta Flora. Tomorrow will make a week since I emailed TF asking for quotes re what we would like for flowers etc. Of course we have not heard back from them. I want to reach out to other florists, but I believe our hotel will charge us a vendors fee. What is everyone else doing?

Hey Islandgirl,

 

I am starting to wonder the same thing. If Tia Flora is not responding to us I think they should wave the vendor fee if we use someone else. I will be emailing the planner today. I have only received 1 email from Tia Flora and that was about 4 months ago. I CC all of my emails to Iberostar so they are aware of all of my attempts.

I had to find a different person at Tai Flora to speak with.  Her name is Jennivie and she is pretty good at responding (may take a day or two but she normally responds). Her number is 876-795-2500 /01.  Last I spoke with her was last month, and they were having phone line issues (my calls were going to a law firm instead of their office) but I think they have it straight now.

Hey Ladies... How is all the planning coming? So we sent out save the dates in February and so far we have 40 people booked so I think that is the number we are gonna have. I'm sending out formal invites in June just in case people may want to come. So far- invites, dress, tuxes and silk flowers are ordered. I have my birdcage veil, jewelry and shoes already. Attendants have all ordered their dresses and I am so ready for these last 4 months to be over.. I think I am pretty much done, all I need is favors and maybe table decor. I'm not sure if I want to decorate the tables since I really think it might just be a waste.

Ladies less than 90 days to go for most of us!!! How's everyone's planning coming along??? We're in the process of booking our florist and soon to start working on our programs. I can't believe how fast time is flying now. Feels like just yesterday we got engaged!

ok so let's see...

 

I am doing a TTD two days after the wedding from my honeymoon spot in Negril...I do not know where we are going..I am leaving that up to the photographer..but I told her what I was looking for and wanted.

 

I had to change a lot of stuff do to budget...so I am keeping it really simple..because at the end of the day...I am not going broke to make sure everyone else is having a good time.

 

NO OOT BAGS....this one really hurt the most...but it had to be done...plus I still can't get an accurate head count..and I am not going to try and track down 100+ grown adults that cant seem to respond to the invite or emails

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
