Also. Be flexible and don't worry about not having everything ironed out beforehand .. .honestly. .they told me I had appointment for the spa.. they didn't.. but they accommodated me on the spot... I was told that a bar would be open as I was planning on having a welcome party there.. it wasnâ€t.. had to make a last second change.. asked for rehearsal dinner reservations weeks before..they ended up making it.. the day before..

Just go with the flow, relax and things will work out...

What bar were you having your welcome party at?  I'm also nervous about the spa appointment now!  I'm thinking I should call directly to confirm.  I made 8 appointments!

Any past brides who used the DJ from the hotel for the ceremony?  How did you provide music for them?  I was told they fade the music as needed and an iPOD was fine, but I'm not sure how it all works.  We are having a vendor for the reception but I am nervous about the music for the ceremony.

 

I'm considering doing a play list AND CD for backup. 

 

Any tips would be great!!

Hello beautiful brides!! I am reading all of your posts about the WC not responding to emails or not sending the final checklist thing yet, and i am in the same boat! Getting married May 18 and I have yet to hear from anyone! So frustrating!!!

I sent it back to her that same night with a few questions. That was about two weeks ago and I still hadn't heard back from her. I sent a fallow up email and she said that she was reviewing my questions and would be back to me shortly. That was about a week ago. I know they do weddings all the time and I'm trying not to freak out, but the lack of response is becoming extremely frustrating.

 

Hey girl!!! Getting married the day after you!!! Congrats!

Good to know!! I have 8 hair appointments and 1 make-up (myself) booked!!  I'm sure they do a ton of updo's as all 3 resorts share the spa.

I thought you get more attention from them when the date gets closer.  They are very busy but the whole situation is annoying.  Trying to get things done without having confirmation on questions is impossible. I also did my last details sheet and haven't heard back yet.

 

I just started making arrangements and explained to her that I had to move forward and I'd appreciate their cooperation.  I can't even get a confirmation on desserts!!!  I added what I wanted to the menu cards and they are done.  Oh well, I hope that's ok!  I have to start getting things done.  I have my bach next weekend, so it leaves 2 weekends before we depart.  I can't wait any longer!

 

On a better note 25 days until we leave for Jamaica!!

Hello All,

 

New to this whole posting thing... been lurking for a good year, but I am getting married on July 4th, 2013 at the Suites and am figuring out that the only way to get answers are on this post!  

 

Does anyone know if they allow you to have your wedding reception at Aunt Ruby's even if you don't meet their minimum number of guests according to their wedding information sheets?  I believe you have to have a minimum of 50 people according to that page, and I only have 38 but am still hoping to do the reception there.  I can't get a hold of the wedding coordinator so I am just going to go ahead and set everything up for the reception there.  Also, anyone know how many people they seat at those round tables at Aunt Ruby's?  On this forum it says 10 but looking at pictures of people's receptions there I am count only 8.

 

Thanks !!

Just in case anyone is curious, I was quoted for a private reception dinner on the beach.  I haven't seen a post about it so I thought I'd share.  Its $55/person and is set up on the beach right in front of Aunt Ruby's.  The dinner has a set menu.  I can forward you the document they sent me if you just send me your email address.

Hi Heather,

 

I gave a CD to the wedding coordinator during our meeting which the DJ used. I had everything in order on the CD of how it would play during the ceremony and a print out of what would play during each part of the ceremony (while guests were being seated, while the wedding party was walking down the aisle, while I was walking down the aisle, while we were signing the certificate, and after we were pronounced husband and wife and walked back down the aisle). The wedding coordinator said she would make sure that the CD worked with the DJ's equipment, and we also had an iPod as a backup, but we never needed it. The DJ got everything exactly right and faded the music out as needed.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
