We are also having a DJ and I was wondering what the restaurant looked like and how it would be set up for dancing and all the other wedding activities. The wedding coordinator sent me some pictures, but I couldn't tell. Also, what type of room were you getting ready in (standard room, junior suite, etc...)? I am booked for the junior suite.
Any insight that you can provide would me much appreciated.
Hi, thanks for the compliments! The pics with dancing/dance floor were taken on the resort in the disco. After our dinner reception at Mammee Bay, we rented the disco for 2 hours privately, before it opened to the public. I was hesitant at first but in the end, I'm glad that we did that. It gave us some time to have fun with our guests privately & the party only got better once it opened up to the public.
In terms of the Plantation, it is pretty big in there & I don't think you have to worry about space. From what I can remember, the tables were set up around the perimeter of the restaurant, leaving the middle open for dancing.
We booked a suite because we knew we were going to need the extra space considering all of our luggage/oot stuff, etc. The junior suites are pretty roomy so as long as you're not having that many people come into your room to help you get ready on the day of the wedding, you should be fine. Hope that helps.

Secondly we are arriving at the resort on a Tuesday with some of our guests ( Actually some will arive about 2 hours before us) and some will be arriving the next day....how are you planning to find everyone? Give them their Welcome bags? This is just one of those little details that keeps bothering me, thanks ladies!
I didn't bring any extra adapters so I don't think you really need them. What would you use them for?
We also arrived on a Tuesday & our guests arrived on Wednesday & Thursday. We had everyone's schedules for when they would arrive so we sat in the lobby & waited for them as their arrival time got close. We loved being there to welcome everyone & to see the expressions on their faces as they got their first look of ROR.
We had a Welcome dinner at St.Ann's & that is when we gave out the oot bags. If you don't want to have a Welcome dinner, you could also ask everyone to meet you in the Lobby bar for Welcome cocktails & you could give out the oot bags then.
For those guests who are arriving before you, I would just ask them to meet you at the Lobby Bar or at a restaurant at a specific time. Like if you're arriving at 3pm, I'd ask them to meet up at 4pm.
