    Hi Soon 2B Mrs. G,

     

    I'm having my wedding reception at the same villa in Mobay in December 2011.  . I have 7 months to go. I am having the ceremony at St. James Parish Church.  I have most of my vendors.  The  biggest issue for me was finding a wedding planner who would be able to work with my vision. But I think I have found her. She has been able to give a decent price on the food, drinks and other rentals.  I also had family members assist with getting the entertainment, etc.  I have a question... Do you plan to have a large party? Mine is between 60-70 guests.  And it will be a pool reception. We are looking at building a dance floor over the pool to accommodate the guests. Its not enough room around the pool to navigate.

      Hey All!


      I'm getting married on the beach at Idle Awhile and then my reception is at Little Waters on the Cliff Villa (both in Negril).  

      I hired a wedding coordinator, I don't think I could complete all the work without her!

       

      I'm so excited!

          soontobemrsg, i'm on the same boat as you.  my fiance and i decided to go for villa wedding.  we chose villa surmer in Negril.  We both wanted our wedding to be more private and intimate. The place that you picked out looks really good!

           

          Happy Planning :)

                  Hi Ladies!

                          I just got back from my destination wedding in Jamaica! I didn't choose a "villa" persay but rather a "boutique hotel" for all the same reasons that you listed. Since it was only the two of us, it felt very special to enjoy our special day together. It was perfect! The morning of the wedding we went kayaking, snorkling, and just relaxed together. I couldn't think of a better way to spend my wedding day. I know that it can be stressful with all the planing but let me reassure you that it is MORE then worth it!

                  Good luck to all of you!

                      Hey Caterer Bride, 

                      I'm so sorry for the delay.  The fi and I have literally been sleeping for the last couple of days. Jet lag is awful.  Ok, so I totally agree with you on that planner you mentioned (more deets to follow) but I found 2 that I absolutely LOVED! Here is the contact info:

                      Paulette Harris (she took me to 7 different venues and was totally awesome. She had the flu and still trucked on through to give me several different options.  You can email her @Paulettesdecor@gmail.com. I highly reco (mention Natalie Dixon if you decide to contact) she has a wealth of vendors that she could assist but prepared she's going to ask you a lot of questions so she can get a good idea of what you want.

                      Norma Ellison @ Events with Elegance: super sweet and very organized but I just didn't choose her.
