Wedding Co-ordinators Jamaica - the good, the bad and the ugly!

Recommended Posts

Hello to All,

 

We are getting married this September and we really need a planner to fulfill our rather unique (we think anyway) wish list.

 

WCs & Experiences thus far...

 

HelenG - after taking several days to respond to my intial contact email, she has yet to respond to my reply (this has been about 10 days now).

 

Wedding Belles - seems great & thorough but works from home as a WC on the side, fees seem quite high and cannot find independent reviews on her.

 

Weddings in Jamaica - Told me they didn't deal with couples that weren't american or canadian. Odd. I am English, fiance Jamaican.

 

Sunny Villa Holidays - Rimma - quite insulting of my future mother in law, too informal (friendly important but still need to be professional!) and thought that our choice in villa was rubbish without explaining why. This is our choice and she should either support it or give valid reasons as to why it isn't a good location. Clearly it was because it is cheaper than some others hence her commission would be less?

 

Half Moon - We have stayed here a couple of times and LOVE it. Unfortunately they are just too expensive.

 

Have emailed a few others but they are yet to get in touch with me..... :(

 

Any advise or recommendations?

 

 

We are having a villa wedding in Runaway Bay on 7th September approx 50 guests and want the works!

Oh wow that so unfortunate you can also check with Sadeki Peterkin she is known for doing weddings across the island you can also do a search to see what others have to say about her.

Thanks ladies, I can confidently say that I contacted almost everyone! cheesy.gif But we have found someone that we think will be fabulous an has already put in so much time and effort and I know will make our very random wishlist a reality.

 

It's that much harder having so much experience in the industry and knowing so many vendors that talk the talk. In fact I often find that those that are too full of themselves are the ones that don't deliver.

 

We will see but this lady seems to think like me so that's a good start!

 

Best of luck with yours...

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
