Hi Joanna, I will have to join the FB group. Could be a good source of information.  That is so excited that well be down there at the same time!  I am sure well run into each other!  I'll just look for whoever is in a wedding gown on the 1st!  I have been using my TA as well but to no avail.  I'm to the point of just giving up lol and whatever happens, happens.  I have a zillion decorations items that will make any place look good so I just can't decide on locations for anything.  I want to do the beach ceremony, but the FI wants the Lazy River for privacy.  I just really want the huppah and the way the beach looks.  What are you doing?  And also, the reception dinner I can't decide between the Calabash and Aunt Ruby's.  I suppose the more sensible option is to do it indoors, but again I love the pictures of the receptions at Aunt Ruby's.  I have recently read that smaller groups can rent the Calabash (most recent was 50 people). So good luck!  I only have 38 people (which includes our photographers who are flying down.)  I would love to do a private reception but A) I don't think I meet any minimums and B) I don't want to spend $800 to privatize it.  I am still wavering back and forth but I think we plan to do just a dinner and then do the reception reception at the Blue Moon Bar.  What is your timeline looking like right now?  I am pushing my ceremony as late as possible so that its hopefully cooler.

Thanks Allie!  I will take that into consideration.  Did you privatize the Calabash?  How many people did you have?  Thanks!

Hi Lana! So our timeline so far - on Saturday, we're going to do welcome drinks at one of the bars, Sunday rehearsal dinner at the Mediterranean restaurant, then bonfire on the beach Sunday night with the sky lanterns, etc. Monday, we'll start the ceremony at 5:30, right now, I have a private dinner planned at Calabash for 6:30pm, then we have the DJ (Kevan Stewart) until 10:30pm, then we'll head to the Disco to party till we pass out. LOL  Tuesday, we're planning a Recovery Brunch in the morning, then my FI and I are getting picked up by our photographer to head to Negril for our TTD photo session then we'll meet our group at Rick's Café then head back to the resort... Whew, I'm already tired thinking about it.  You should come by my events so you can see how everything is set up, since you'll be there!

I really have to do the reception part inside, it's going to be sooo hot outside and looking at some videos of folks who did theirs at Aunt Ruby's all I see is people sweating through their clothes.... so I didn't think that was a good idea!  Oh and when you join the FB group, there are two of them, make sure you join the "sisterhood of the traveling starfish" one - that one has been the most useful to me! :)

Hi Joanna, Whew that is a lot planned!  I am so jealous that you're going to Rick's Cafe.  I really wanted to visit there but trying to coordinate everyone has been a slight nightmare.  We have people flying in from California to Pennsylvania and trying to communicate plus coordinate arrivals and tours hasn't gone smoothly.  I did manage to get a Catamaran to Margaritaville for Friday but only half of our group has signed up.  I would love to swing by and see your wedding set up!  You're more than welcome to come by mine too, for entertainment since you'll already know how things go.  I think we have slightly changed our tune about having the reception at Aunt Ruby's.  We are now going to do the Mediterranean restaurant since its so small we will reach capacity with just our group, basically getting it private without having to pay for the fee, and its indoors.  We are do a similar rehearsal night to you.  Dinner at the Japanese restaurant, then bonfire on the beach, and releasing of the wishing lanterns on Wednesday night.  Every evening (Sunday-Saturday) we are telling our group to meet at the Lobby bar at 5:45pm as a rendezvous point  and am going to try to get us group dinner reservations at some restaurant every night.  Kinda told guests if they wanted to come great, if not no worries.  Just know most of our group rarely gets to see each other so should be a party all week. Well feel free to reach out and contact me via email if you want to compare details or simply chat about this exciting time!  Just PM me and I can shoot you my email or vice versa.

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 everybody! My name's Cassie, and I'm new to this thread.

 

Was originally looking at Grand Bahia, but not strongly leaning towards IBRHS!

 

I was hoping somebody could email me information on 2014 pricing, as I was only giving information about the Rose Hall Beach.

Thanks so much!! Anybody else getting married here in November 2014?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
