Slow, slow response time from Jamaican vendors?

Recommended Posts

I know that people are more laid-back in Jamaica and always hear that they are on "island time". To be honest, I get so frustrated with our wedding coordinator and vendors -- who all seem to take weeks to respond to emails. It's frustrating when we're trying to make monetary-related decisions and need their feedback or information. Do I just need to accept and live with this slow response time? If you're a vendor on this forum, please consider that this slow response time is not typical in most professions.

Yes, I believe we all have experienced the same thing. But it seems as though all the brides agree that once they are there the coordinators are on-top of everything. personally, I would rather have them focused on me during my wedding then answering tons of email and phone calls regarding upcoming weddings.

Take a deep breathe and relax.  :)  I know it gets frustrating when you just have a simple question to be answered and it takes a while to get the response.  Just try to remember the reason you're having a DW... a lot less stressful!!!  Honestly, there isn't much you need to do until you actually get down there and meet with the WC a couple days before.  They do this day in and day out with hundreds of brides to "deal" with!  No Worries Mon!  Besides, that's what this forum is for... ask away!!!  Odds are there are many brides on this forum who can answer your questions!

 

If you need a WC/vendor that responds right away, then perhaps change resorts/vendors or even the island!  But trust me, your wedding will be perfect even though it takes 3-7 days to get a response.

 

Relax, you're getting married in paradise to the man of your dreams!!!!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
