Okay I have a question already!!! About your room at Sandals.. my FI and I are going back and forth with the swim up room and the private pool room.... Would you say there was much privacy with the swim up room? I like the idea of how the private pool room is secluded..

 

- Thanks Satara

HI Satara!  The swim up lagoon is semi-private. We were the second to last room, so it was a bit more private infront of the room but some of the rooms are near the walk ways and one restaurant.  We lucked out.  We didn't see the private plunge pool rooms (Millionare suites) but my  main isssue was there wasn't beach front for that option and I love the ocean and wanted the ocean view.  We went during slow season so not alll the rooms were booked and the lagoon never had more than 5 people in it. Each room has it's own section and then there is a main section. Since it's all couples, everyone is just chillin'. We loved the lagoon and had the option to go to the millionaire suite for a few days ( we were there for 10) but declined once we saw the swim up lagoon!  Here is a picture taken from an I PHONE at sunset from right outside our room.  That is the hot tub to the left.  313612_650742939273_50200716_33715318_2103592478_n.jpg

I am getting married in July 2012, but Renne WAS my WC, but she is no longer there and it's now CHloe. She was very good and did not try to sell me anything, but missed giving me some of the expenses I will have to pay, like that $250 set up fee for wedding. I am really excited, my main concern is getting all my favors, decorations and gifts for guests there. Any ideas or suggestions. I was just gonna buy 1 big suitcase and put everything in there. I am using the gazebo and having the reception on the Katt Cruise since the extra fees for a reception at resort is too high ( just like having reception at home), gotta pay for music, seatings, liquor service, table service. I want to decorate wedding ceremony, but I am not sure what to get. I was thinking beach balls and rose petals, but the rose petals cost $60 a bag and she said I need 3 bags...sheesh. Oh well, I am so excited though.

I am getting married at Beaches negril, July 2012. let me know how you make out with bringing all the favors and decorations through customs. We asked UPS how much too ship , it's $400 per box and the resort said you must be there to sign for it. I will take my chances with customs, there main concern is selling stuff and when they see it's for wedding, it should be ok. Any ideas? I am doing Beautiful Beginnigs Wedding, at gazebo and having the reception on the Katt Cruise since having reception at Beaches is too much money, its like paying for a reception at home, this way it's different & then we will all go to dinner after the cruise.

Another questions girls...

 

PHOTOGRAPHERS

 

Do you know if the photographer from the resort can be with you the whole wedding day or is it just for the ceremony? I keep going back and forth on the photographer... I really don't want to sepnd $4000.00 plus on  a photographer flying them down and such then pay for the package.. Who did everybody use?

I am thinking 40-50 guests are coming also and the cruise is $1950, it holds up to 50 for that price and then like $2200 for 50 to100 people. It's a 2-3 hr cruise and it's all yours.

As for the photographer, I am not sure how long he stays with you, I would think for the entire wedding & reception, but Iam doing a cruise for reception and they are charging $100 per hour extra for him to be on the cruise with us, I opted out and instead I will put cameras in everyones gift bag and ask them to take pictures for us.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
