Hello Ladies!

 

Thank you all for your posts,  the info really helps! I'm glad to learn Sabes44 that you're an event planner, I work in hospitality as well, it just confirms I made the right choice  :lol: since we aren't doing a site visit .

 

We are getting married April 30th, 2015 and chose the gold package. I am undecided on the locations to hold the ceremony, my fiance is leaning towards the pier and I like the beach however I've noticed that pictures under the perogola often have stripes of shade and light. Am I just making too much of a big deal on this little detail. Any thoughts?

 

Thanks!

Julie

@@Sabes44, I don't believe we got any extra perks with destinationweddings.com.  I had a friend who used them and had no problems so that is why we chose them.  I really like my agent.  She gets back to me very quickly and has been helping my friends/family with all their questions. 

I have to been to the Excellence 4 times on vacation so believe me if you choose ERC, you won't be disappointed!!!  


@@karijean, thank you so much for the post!  It was very helpful!  Pictures looked amazing and so did you!  I agree about the DJ.  At first we weren't going to get one and do the ipod but I don't want to have to worry about songs all night.  We hired our DJ and photog last week :)  Thanks again for the info.

@@hapykat it is definitely not easy to book something site unseen, but I feel confident with all the research I have done.  I am just working on figuring out what "extras" are worth it to pay for.  Still comparing with Karisma resorts, but I have liked Excellence from the beginning and two story terrace room looks amazing!  I totally over think things, go with your first instinct.  If you don't mind the sand and potential stripes of shade and light I say go for it.  I have never noticed that detail in any of the pictures, until you mentioned it.  Either way you can't go wrong!

 

Thanks @@Crystal17!  How much does the DJ run for?  We will have a small group, I am trying to decide if a DJ is worth the cost.

 

Thanks ladies!!

Thanks @@Sabes44 (I hope I'm doing this right) I would also like to know how much the DJ costs, and if its really worth the money? I don't expect us to be more than 30

@@Sabes44 and @@hapykat - I've been working with Jessica and I recently asked her for a price list. If I recall correctly, DJ Mannia is $1300 for four hours.

Thanks @@JenniferH114!  That's a pretty good price for 4 hours @@hapykat, we will have about the same amount of guests.  I am also trying to decide if its worth it, or if it would just be more fun to go to another bar after and maybe just have a little trio or something during the reception.  We don't plan on a typical wedding, might just want to do a few speeches and maybe a first dance but really just want to have fun and enjoy the time with friends and family.

Thanks for all the info Ladies! Lots of good idea to ponder. I was wondering if anyone's wedding will be overlapping with mine? April 30th is a Thursday and we leave Sunday May 3rd.

I was undecided about DJ until recently. There are 30 of us and I decided to go for it. Then we don't have to worry about anything.

 

I am getting married on the beach! I did notice the stripes that the sun and shade make under the pergola but for me that's one thing I like about it. I think the pics come out pretty cool looking with all the shadows. I think you will defiantly have to be ok with that look if you choose the beach.

I like your perspective about the shadows. So about shoes... I know this is probably obvious but do you know if anyone's has "successfully" worn shoes down the burlap runner?

    • 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
