We are on a tight budget and are looking into having it on a public beach so the actual ceremony would be free. Does anyone have any recommendations? I have heard governors beach or smiths cove possibly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

       

      I'm not much help but I have heard that Smith's Cove is a good spot.

        This is a long shot but does anyone know of a way I can get sparklers for our send off in Cayman? I've contacted one local place I found online but haven't heard back. My planner can't get them from the place she used to anymore and it's too late for me to have them shipped. :(

            I was there last month and went to both Governors and Smith Cove. They are both beautiful, but very different. The beach at Smith Cove is small and there is rock between most of the beach and water. Governers is wide open. I googled some pictures that I thought best represented what they actually look like. I picked the wedding picture at govenors because there was a wedding in that same spot when we were there. I think it's the usual place they set up because there are trees for shade. If you want it closer to the water you may have to specify. Hope this helps! :)Posted Image

                    We are getting our wedding cake made by TRC for our May 2014 wedding. They gave me a quote of $250CI for a three tiered cake, with buttercream icing....and of course the rum cake as the actual cake flavor.

                      I am in a bit of a predicament which is causing me to stress out way too much. We are wanting to book a may 2014 beach wedding at the Westin. I've been planning and conversing back and forth with their planner for a while now. She even sent me a total estimate and we were going to start picking decor. I had been very persistent on securing my date and she always avoided the topic. I then said enough is enough and I wanted to know how much deposit to give to book. She then told me that out of a 90 day window from the date, they do not accept deposits and the ONLY way I can secure a date is to book 30 room nights at their hotel! At their "discounted" price, it works out to be almost $7000!!! And my guests and I aren't even staying at their hotel, we are booking villas next door at villas of the galleon. We may have a few guests book there but certainly No where near 30 room nights. I don't know what to do! We were very set on the Westin as I used to work at that property and really loved the beach. But what options do I have? Book the rooms and move our wedding party their instead of the villas, Which is almost Twice as expensive? Take my chance and book my date only 3 months in advance? Or just not book at the Westin at all and go with my second choice, tiki beach? The Westin wedding coordinator has not been helpful at all. I said I wasn't happy with that policy since we won't be staying there anyways and she said "okay that's fine, enjoy tiki beach I hear they are really nice" 😳 not trying to work around it or help me out! So frustrated.
