1) Did you tip Anel or Ramon? And if so, about how much is appropriate? I have no idea what proper etiquette is for something like this.

3) Did you have your dress steamed by the resort?

 

Thanks in advance for any info!!

I did not tip ramon i actualu ly didnt get to see him after the wedding he off the next day but i did send him a really nice letter thanking him for all his hard work. 

I did have my dress and the suit steamed they did a fantastic job all you do is leave your dress (in the bag) and his suit on the bed the day before your wedding i forgot to fill out the form that is in the closet on your laundry bag but they picked it up and by 12 the same day it was back all steamed. they placed my dress hanging on the bed wrapped in a king size bed sheet so my hubby couldnt see it. I just moved it into the closet. i was very happy with the way it turned out

I did not tip them.  As you say, I had a hard time deciding what would be an appropriate amount and we felt that with all the "service" fees they add on to things, he probably gets a percentage of it as it is. 

 

I had my dress ironed as my MIL told me that the material of my dress would ruin if steamed. As Noxx said, they have you fill out your laundry sheet with the number of items you need pressed and any special instructions.  One of my bridesmaids had her dress pressed also and she arrived the morning of the wedding (had left a 6wk old at home and couldn't get away for long) and they had the dress to us by the time we got back from getting our hair and makeup done at the salon.

Hello past brides!

 

Did the resort provide any sort of decorations for the tables at no charge?  (sea shells, starfish, candles, etc)

I did not use any resort decor but from sifting through these posts over the last year, there was a bride who said she didn't bring anything and ramon decorated the tables w/ candles and sea shells.  She had included her slideshow and you can see what the table looked like.

The resort only supplies the white linen for your table. They will set up any decorations you wish. They do rent out vases for $5 a piece

The Now Sapphire is an excellent choice for you to host your destination wedding. I know the on site wedding coordinator Anel is very helpful, you will be in good hands.

 

Good luck and happy planning!
