JamaicaSukie's Wedding Planning Journal - Iberostar Rose Hall Suites 7/7/12

Recommended Posts

Jessica at Stylish Scribe was so great to work with. One small complaint I have is that once she is done with your order, she does not respond to emails. I emailed her shortly after I had received my invites (and confirmed they were good) to ask about the postage for the invites and she never responded. That being said, she was very responsive throughout the creation process and they really came out beautiful. We've gotten rave reviews!

 

Quick update - I booked my make-up artist and hair stylist. I am working with Peter-Gaye Lambert-Rose (female) and one of her stylists. They have been very responsive and the hair dressers claims she can keep my wild tresses from frizzing out the day of. For airbrush make-up and lashes and hair for me, and traditional make-up and hair for my two attendants and FMIL, the cost is $620. A 50% deposit via Western Union was required to confirm the booking. You can see her work here.

Thanks!  I figure this is the only way anything will get done.  Lol!  I should be receiving the samples this week, so I will post another update re: how they look.  I still go back and forth between spending the money on chair ties in the colors I want and just going with the free silver or white chair ties from the resort.  I think it will ultimately come down to money if we need to cut costs as we get closer.


Next on my to do list is to start exploring possible excursion options.  Since we are only "hosting" 4 days, we don't want to infringe too much on our guests free time, however, many people have asked us what activities we're planning.  We are hosting a welcome cocktail hour on the Thursday most guests arrive, a rehearsal dinner and possible "last night out" for Friday night, the wedding is Saturday and then a good-bye/thank you brunch on Sunday.  I was thinking maybe a group trip to Aquasol Theme Park which is a theme park at Walter Fletcher Beach and has all kinds of activities (fees may apply) such as jet skiing, glass bottom boat rides, go-karts, etc.  According to Frommer's, admission is $5 for adults, $3 for kids, plus the cost of any activities.  I figured that while I can't afford to take everyone on a specific excursion, I might be able to afford to at least coordinate the trip to this park and pay the admission fee for our guests.  We'll see how this works out.

I am going to check out efavormart for me sashes as well as I will be needing some. I ordered samples from cvlinens but I think the ones you mentioned are a better price.
Can't wait to see more of what you are planning!!

Every thing looks great so far! I ordered my invites from weddingpaperdivas, and was really happy with the quality for the price.

Thank you!  I actually received my chair tie and table runner samples from efavormart.com and they are not bad at all!  The colors are perfect (sage and turquoise) and the price is right!!  The green runner is a slightly more narrow than the turquoise but I'm not sure if it's supposed to be.  I plan on alternating the tables with turquoise and sage runners and alternating chair tie colors around the table.  I will try to post a pic soon.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
