Has anyone done a catamaran thing?  I'd love to rent a boat for our group for the day - just go out on the water and snorkel.. hang out and drink!  I saw somewhere that one bride paid like $60 per person which doesn't sound bad.  I just can't remember where I saw that?

 

Also, I have done the canopy tours in Jamaica and they are a lot of fun!!!  Would definitely recommend.

We are doing a catamaran after our wedding in July.  It'll be exactly how you mentioned- we'll dance, drink, swim, and snorkel.  We're going through Cruise Adventures Jamaica, and it'll be around $60-70 a person, depending on how many people go.

I acutally got a reply from Island Routes Caribbean Adventure Tours.  Here is what they said.... I think the price they quoted is pretty good - especially if we have a large number of people.  Because if we have 100 people, $60 a person would be $6,000 total.  This would be max $4425 for 100 people.  We're not sure how many people will be attending the wedding.  If it's only around 50 than maybe the per person makes sense?

 

In the $60-$70 you were quoted - does that include transportation from the hotel?

We are going to do a catamaran too for our guests, making it optional, my travel agent is working with the charter company right now so I will keep you posted. ALSO we are going to Montego Bay May 12 to do a site visit at the Iberostar (22 days WOO!) and the two of us are 100% doing the catamaran so hopefully we will be able to talk to them in person and get a good rate. I'll keep you guys posted. We did the trip two years ago and the catamaran was the absolute highlight of our trip, it was so much fun and we want to share that with our guests. I can only imagine how much fun its going to be having it rented out with just our friends and family.

Awesome!  Yes, please let me know how it is! and what company you are going through.  We plan to do the same for our guests - charter the catamaran and make it optional for guests, but i hope everyone comes!  Another thing, we for sure have 3 kids attending the wedding - my brother who will be 15 and my FI's cousins (who are in our bridal party) and will be 8 and 10 at the wedding.  Do you think the catamaran is appropriate for them - especially since it will be only our guests and not random people?  I know the lady I have been speaking with at Island Routes said yes, but i'd like another opinion - preferably from someone who has been on it before.

 

Thanks!

 

And have an awesome trip!

Well when we went last year we did the 3pm one which was the later trip specifically because they said that kids/families generally don't go on the later trip (they tend to book the 11am catamaran) So kids DO go on them however the one we went on it was a pretty rowdy crowd-so rowdy that they didn't let some of the people snorkel  because they were wasted beyond belief and then those people stayed at margaritaville, on the way back the workers gave the women foot massages and some got a little raunchy- I mean I'm 24 and I felt uncomfortable watching 50 year old women getting their feet licked... BUT with all that being said it's not gonna be like that if you have a private charter. I think the age of the kids that your having will LOVE it, the snorkeling is AMAZING so pretty and they have so many guides to show you around, and margaritaville is super fun too!  I will keep you posted with updates next month!!!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
