      Hi, does anyone have any photos of the on-the-beach reception set up with a tent, etc...? I've emailed Tai Flora for tent information but have yet to hear back from them and it's been over a month.

        I'm planning on having a beach dinner at the Suites as well, but don't have a whole lot of information.

         

        All the set up and everything is suppose to go through Tai Flora (apparently the resort doesn't do much for the beach receptions).  So I'm waiting for pricing back from Tai Flora on dance floor, chairs, table runners, lights, votives, etc.

         

        The hotel has provided me with the following pricing:

        • Tent - they have said $600 but I need to confirm with Tai Flora as they are the provider.  I have seen photos of a clear tent that looks pretty nice.
        • Slideshow screen and equip = $450
        • Dinner = $55/person plus open bar of $10/person (this includes setting up of tables with beige table cloths with white overlays and chair with chair cover)
        • DJ = $150/hr
        • Dance Floor - again they have said $500 but I need to confirm with Tai Flora as they are the provider. 
        • LED Lights - Nicole had said $40 each but then in a later email Tiffany said they would not provide
        • $50 fee if we bring our own paper lanterns and we want them to set up

         

        Hope that helps and if anyone else has any other information it would be helpful to know.  I have 50 adults and 3 babies and they never told me of their requirment to have 60 people.

        Hi Shauna, I booked DJ Kevan and he said he could bring slideshow equipment at a charge of $200. Not sure who you have booked as a DJ but thought I'd mention it. Have you been able to get any information from Tai Flora? I emailed them twice over the last month but have not heard a word.

          I called Jodi on my lunch today.  It's true, she was out for a while on vacation.  The chairs are $8.50 each.  White, gold, silver, and one other color I forget.  The cushons come with it.  She said they are clean haha. and have up to 200 seats.

           

          Also, they cant leave them there for your wedding because Iberostar is responsible for damages or if anything goes missing.. so they don't allow anything to stay after my reception. 

          She was super nice.  I think coming back from vacation she's overwhelmed.  I'm trying to finalize some major details (flowers being one) before the new year, so I decided to just call.

            We have our wedding booked for May 25, 2013 at Grand Rose Hall. It's so hard planning a wedding when you are not physically there. Has anyone gone there for some pre wedding planning? Has anyone been to a Sandals and compared the two? We were just at Sandals Royal Bahamian and absolutely loved it. We were almost debating about switching, but we love Jamaica too. I need to iron this out asap, but are torn. Please help.

              I actually called them on my lunch as well today, but again had to speak to Stachell.  I got the impression that she was somewhat new to this as she kept putting me on hold to go ask someone else all of my questions.  She said she is going to send me pricing by tomorrow on everything I have requested so we'll see how that comes along.  Stachell however told me that the Chivari chairs are $6 each to rent (I oly asked about the silver ones though) and charger plates are $5 each.  We'll see if that changes once she confirms with someone else and gives me an actual quotation.

                This is why we need everything in e-mail.  How do they give 2 brides different prices on the same day?!  (I like your price better haha)

                 

                If she confirms the $6.00, would you forward me the e-mail please? How many chairs are you renting?

                  I will be renting 50 chairs.  Using them first for the ceremony and then for the reception.  I was going to have my ceremony off site at the aqueducts and then the reception at Aunt Ruby's, but I just found out today that if I go that route then I have to plan the reception through their groups department rather than the wedding department.  That would really mess things up as I already have so much back and forth in emails from Tiffany & Nicole.  Also, I'm not given priority on reception location if I go the off site ceremony route.  So beach ceremony at the resort it is I guess.  I just hate that I will be paying the $2,100 wedding fee as well as $18/person plus the cost of the chair just to have someone sit and watch me get married and have one glass of champagne. They really get you on that!

                    Plus the cost to do a private reception, and open bar, dont forget that!  It is pretty crazy when you start adding everything up... but with 15 rooms booked, there's no turning back now!  


                    I hope they quote you the $6.00 via e-mail!

                      Shauna253, when/how did you get this info?!  I booked my wedding date at the Suites months ago but have since decided to have my ceremony at the Aqueducts.  So far, it's been a great decision as I have not had to struggle with communication and organizing details.  I've booked through TWJ so it's a done deal.  Other than not being given priority on ceremony location were there any other down-falls you've discovered?
