For your bouquet did you order it before you got there or did you pick it out when you met with keisha?  I still have so much to do before I leave and I havent even started! Ill def be checking out Brians pics of your wedding. :) CONGRATS!

Hey Danielle!

 

Wow, only 2 more months until your big day!  You must be so anxious and excited, I know I was;)  And you will see how quickly these next couple of months go!  I actually used Jan's Flowers for my flowers and decor, and I had sent her photos of my wedding colours and the type of bouquet I was looking for.  In the end, I went with their "Tropical Bouquet" which she had sent me a photo of and the price was right:)  I have to say, the bouquets for myself and my bm's turned out awesome!  As well as the flowers for my ceremony (which I also used for my reception).  The only disappointment was the lanterns ($20 each!) which were pretty dinky.  So Jan's did up the contract and sent it to Keisha and I paid Keisha for it with a credit card when I arrived in JA.  By the way, you can pay by Credit Card or U.S cash for the cost of the wedding.

I did do the private reception at the Plantation and it was $1000 to rent it out for 4 hours (6:30pm-10:30pm, but they let us stay until 11pm which was nice:) The tables can be round or long and rectangular like mine were.  The lanterns, glass votives, dinner menus, table runners, and rose petals were added by me.  We had 10 free guests and myself and my husband were free.  Then I paid $10.50pp for the steakhouse dinner + another $10.00pp for adults and $5.00pp for children for the open bar.  I also rented the dj equipment at $200/hour (yikes) and my brother and his buddy dj'd my wedding.  At the end of the day, we paid less than what it would have cost to get married back home, and the memories you will make are priceless!!!

Hi Yassy! Congratulations! I am going to look for your photos on facebook after I get off of here. I was just wondering how far in advance did you tell Jan's what you wanted? Also, did you have your hair or makeup done by the resort? If so, how was that? Thanks so much!!! :)

Thanks! and yes just under 2 months. and time is flying. especilally with xmas just around the corner We as well are doing the private reception. She told me the round table would be extra. ( im sure that is something that could be waived if i asked. REally extra for round tables?) lol . I am def doing my own reception decoration ( the prices there are abit outrageous).   Thats basically the same quotes we got. She gave me the option of the BBQ meanu or the Plantation menu.  The open bar they were quoting us 15. So at this point I am thinking of scraping the  open bar, and just going with the drinks included because I read it was Wine, beer, and softdrinks. I figured if anyone wanted anything different they could go down to the bar. ?? Is it close by or is it a far walk?? We are having a DJ for 2 hours. 600$ But my Fi wants it :|

 

I am so glad your wedding turned out amazing :) and CONGRATS AGAIN ON BEING A MRS!

Hello Devin007!

 

I actually did my own make-up and my husband's cousin (who is a hairdresser) did my hair.  But I did get my nails redone by the spa ($30 USD) and it turned out well and they were very friendly at Renova Spa.  One of my bridesmaids had her make-up done by the Renova Spa and it turned out very nice!  Soft and natural looking.  If you look at my photos, she is the one with the straight hair tied in a low ponytail.  Not too sure what she paid though:(

The same thing happened to me, so I shot Keisha an email and she replied and confirmed that she actually did receive it (despite what the tracking details showed online).  So definitely send her an email:)

Back from my wedding, November 30! :) Just a few pointers...our group was doing a double wedding (on different days, but within the same week)...we were moved to the Plantation (at no extra cost besides the 10.50 pp above the package). We were served the steak house menu, DO not pay for a bar...the pool bar is next to the plantation and the servers got drinks for our entire group of 57. The day before the wedding, Patricia offered me the private poolside reception at NO COST. I refused it because it would have been buffet style and not served. So, don't pay the $1000.00 for "private reception" at the plantation. Our friends who got married did the semi-private (same as us) and there was no one in the mammee bay restaurant, they section you off so there is privacy. Just an FYI to future brides. :)
 
OH and everything went splendid. Patricia was amazing. I have no complaints. :)
