We are getting married at the Beach on March 12.  Happy to say that we have been very pleased with Santena the WC at the Beach.  We just submitted our "Last Minute Details" file that spells out our detailed requirements.  Santena sent that document to us about 4 weeks out from our date.

 

For the bonfire, we chose to go with 2 hours after our rehearsal dinner (at the Japanese restaurant the night before).  We are having Steel Pans for the bonfire.  You need to have a min of 15 ppl for the bonfire.

 

Since we are only 17 ppl, we are planning to have the wedding at 4:00, dinner at 7:00 in the steakhouse and then a cocktail reception on the terrace with DJ afterwards, starting at 8:30.  Those who are into it will probably head to the disco afterwards.  According to the planning doc, you need to have 30 to book the disco and 80 for a private dinner reception.

 

Still thinking of having digipix do 12 pictures (free option) and then have one of our guests taking candid photos.

 

Anyone have any comments or advice?

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

 

 

Wanted to say good luck and enjoy your wedding and the week :D

 

sounds like everything you have planned is amazin :D

Im not sure if some of these questions have been answered in another thread, but Ill answer anyways.

 

Selling tickets to cruise ships: They may sell day passes, but during my week at least the resort was never packed and I know that they were cruise days. The tourist spots were busier those days, but the resort was fine.

 

Re Credit card charge: If you are talking about the credit card info that you had to give to reserve your wedding date, they don't charge anything. They just put your name in their calendar. I think the CC is just on file to charge the wedding to in case you bugger off after and don't pay. 

 

 Bill: your night sounds very well planned and should be a lot of fun!

Just courious. Did they make you stop the party right at 1030 because we are renting the disco and i was just told that the music has to stop at 1030 and then the DJ will start again at 11 when the disco opens to the public. I was wondering if theres anyway aroudn that? like maybe paying a little money to get the music to keep going?  cuase part of the reason why i wanted the disco is so that when dancing started it could keep going till 1 am or what not? any ideas on that?

 

Also did u send the DJ a play list?

Hi Krista33

 

Thanks for looking into this for me... WHat i ended up doing is going through my contract they provided to me when i reserved my wedding date with a fine tooth comb. I did so much research for a wedding photographer i didn't want to see my efforts go to waste. So i finally found that based on my contract all i had to do was pay $100 +$75 "vendor fees" How they came up with that amount is besides me? So i provided that information to Santena and she wrote back that is was fine.  If anyone is looking for the cheapest photographer prices in Jamaica feel free to message me. I spent a lot of time on this subject and finally booked a photographer. Now on to flowers.. lol

Congratulations! I would recommend taking a look at the reviews under the Resort Reviews section of this site, and also take a look at Trip Advisor. One of the brides that just got married wrote a review last week. You'll get a good idea of the wedding set-ups and overall resort info.

Hey,

I am getting married there April 13 and I'm doing the semi private dinner because I only have 33 guests! I figured I would just book the disco after and make up for the lack of privacy I'm expecting at the dinner. I am getting nervous because Santena takes forever to respond to emails and the time is fastly approaching!

I had a semi private dinner and bonfire after till 10:30 then everyone changed met in the lobby for cocktails and went to the disco. It worked out perfectly and the photos of the first dance in front of the bonfire was awesome. Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Hi Bill,

 

Were you only allowed to book the terrace cocktail reception with DJ following dinner because you didn't meet the 30 person requirement for the Disco? Or did they make it sound like this was a common option for weddings?

 

And how did it go?!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
