Are you going to just make your own play list and have it playing for the ceremony?

 

We are having the sound system for the ceremony & bringing our iPod with our chosen songs and a list of when to play each. I believe there is a technician to play the iPod.

hi shannonmarie

 when you estimated 9500$ is this including an outside photographer or your using the resorts? Also was that including extra centerpeices? Im just tryin to figure out myself how much things should end up since im trying to stay within a budget also.. thanks! 

No, our budget didn't allow an outside photographer. We are upgrading our photos within our package though, using the resort, photographer & yes, that is including about 8 centerpieces through the resort.

Is this true? Is their a way around it? I feel like such an idiot for not knowing this, I feel like looking into a new resort while I still have time. Any information would be so helpful, thanks.

I did read that somewhere, though I can't remember where, it might be in my ta contract? I think they would have to book a family suite? It's not really that much more expensive

I havent started looking at my seating plan, so i dont know how many round tables I am going to need as of yet. Does anyone know if they can do a head table of 12 in the bamboo room? I dont like the idea of the "sweetheart" table, i want all of our wedding party at the table with us!

 

We have a small wedding party. Just a maid of honor and best man, actually 2 best men, FI couldn't decide between his 2 best friends. I'm sure you can do a head table of 12. We are having just a sweetheart table. I want our wedding party to sit with their significant others. I've never been a fan of head tables, especially when my FI was in a wedding and I knew nobody there.

Hi Beth!

 

I am a travel agent and the Now Jade does NOT allow 4 adults in the same room. Even the family suite must be 2 adults and 2 children you cannot have 4 adults in the family suite. You are not going to be able to find many properties that allow 4 adults in one room as per their fire code restrictions thats just the way it is unfortunately. My mom and dad wanted to be in the same room as my brother and sister (17 and 9) and hotels do not even allow that! They have booked 2 seperate rooms, and when we get down to the resort I am going to see if we can get a family suite if it is not already occupied. Resorts keep these family rooms for larger families who NEED to have their small children in the same room. I hope this helps!

Also Beth, i believe adults are considered age 16+ which is why my parents could not be in the same room as my brother and sister....I think it is quite silly as they cant be in a room alone as you have to be 18+ to be in a room....

We didn't use the photography that was included in Divine on our actual wedding, but we just used it for pictures another day, sort of like TTD. I think that is better then the $150 that they offer, since you get an hour session, and a photo album, and the pictures came out really nice. We loved them.

 

Also, I wanted to do a hair trial instead of airport transafer and they didn't let me swap.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
