Beaches Negril Brides 2011

Recommended Posts

Krystina, you make a very good point.  I checked out "etsy.com" and just searched for silk wedding bouquets and they are lovely!  I'm going to do what you are doing.  I agree, I really don't think they will grab it out of our hands. 

 

Dymond6 - it's been a month? Yikes!  So, with 40 guests are you going to have Beache's so called private dinner/reception?  Do you have an idea of how that area will look like?  I just find it a bit hard to gauge as I'm just trying to picture it all in my head.  You have to make sure everyone is fairly entertained.  Did you have to pay for the 40 headcount upfront?  That was one of the questions I am waiting on a reply from Renee for. 

 

Bride2Be143 - Did you opt for the mento band at all?

 

By the way, are you guys all using the resort's hair and make-up artist?

MyMy, yes I will go with the private reception. The $75 one, since we have 10 or more rooms, it will be discounted to $60. There is a time frame to get the money to the resort, I think its either 30 or 45 days, I would have to check. The ask for a guest list and all of that. My wedding is in October, so not many have booked yet, so I'm kind of estimating 40. We will see what I really get.

 

The area... its outside, so you will be in sand, I ran across a guests pictures on one of these threads, if I happen across it again I will post it. But from what I understand tables are in the sand under a wooden tent??? I cant find the correct word at this hour. My question will be where is the dance floor. I will have to pay for the guests upfront I believe. To my understanding everything is paid for 30 or 45 days upfront.

 

Hair/Makeup... My sister is a cosmetologist and my maid of honor, we will try my hair style out that I have chosen one of these days. For makeup *sigh* I may have to break down and pay the $100 for them to do it. There is a $30 trial charge and a $70 wedding makeup charge. Such a ripoff!!! I'm praying that my makeup artist cousin comes with us.

 

Krystina, your flowers are absolutely stunning. Are they silk or the real touch I've been hearing about?

BTW I say this on another thread, for those looking for OOT Bags. Dollar Tree has these cute totes. When I saw them on another thread I had to see them in person, I figured they would be cheap looking , but I went just in case and I fell in love. I bought 20. I will either do an iron on or embroidery, or both. Here is the link: http://www.dollartree.com/new-arrivals-seasonal/seasonal/big-polyester-beach-totes/215c277c277p310914/index.pro?method=search

Sllefebvr... she asked her WC, they said she couldnt pick them up and bring them onsite, so I'm sure they wont allow delivery lol. But if I decide to go with real bouquets I'm using my florist and I'll put the bouquets in bags and be done with it.

 

I'm trying to be good and look into silk ones though.

So you are going to try and transport real flowers?!?  I am starting to consider those real touch flowers everyone has but I'm afraid of the quality and the look... i'll probably end up buying a sample to see.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
