    Sorry KDoyle, another question for you...did you end up hiring the DJ for the full 4 hour duration of your dinner/reception?  I plan to rent the sound system from 8:30pm-10:30pm and am not sure what to do about music for the first 2 hours (during the dinner).  I wonder if I should just bring a boombox since I'll just use it for background music while we eat...lol.  Anyway, any advise you can provide would be much appreciated (as always!).

      Hey ladies

       

      Did any of you have trouble getting a quote from Jans flowers? I ask for one about 2 weeks ago and nothing yet?

        Hey Atrack,

         

        It did take a few weeks to get a response back from them, but once they did, the replies were pretty quick afterwards.  Maybe try sending them a follow-up email in case your initial one got lost in the shuffle?  I've already sent about 4 emails to them and each time they have responded.  They are now just waiting on me to finalize my selections so they can forward the invoice to the RIU for billing purposes. 

         

        Yassy.

          Yea unfortunately customer service is not the greatest in Jamaica. We've had communication issues with several vendors, make me so mad but sad part is I still need them! Lol

            Its free only to the amt of guests on your pacakge.

             

            So if you went with the free" package you have up to 10 guests included any amt over that is 10.50 (EVEN for the semi private dinner)

             

            there are costs to everything =/

                i just double checked, and we were told up to 40 for the semi privte dinner was free, but any chairs 4 the cermoany over 10 we would have to pay for, and then pay per person for the reception. was anyone else told this? and if we have it in emails they have to respect that right?
