Congrats! I am also a Feb 2014 bride however have not picked a date or a resort yet! Very stressed .... we are thinking Cancun/Riv Maya area. Where are you travelling from? How much will your guests be paying?

 

I am travelling to the Gran Caribe Real next week to do a site visit at that resort and some other ones too. I believe we will be doing a visit to the Gran Porto Resort - which is the sister resort to the one we are staying at :)

Thank you Cherina!  I've always wanted to go to Jamaica...

 

Hi BridetobeABCD!  I chose the Gran Porto because of costs... Its a lot cheaper than the Royal and kids can come.  I was looking at the RIUs and a couple other hotels in Playa, and it seemed as though all or most of the guests had to stay at the resort in order to come to your wedding.  Although I would love to have everyone stay at the resort, the reality is that some will not be able to.  Gran Porto does not require guests to stay at the resort!  (Although, you will pay a bit of a higher fee for them to come).  I also loved the Gran Porto because you can have everything outside and customize your wedding.  You can bring your own things (decorations and what not) and they do not mind.  We are doing everything on the North beach (ceremony, cocktail hour and private reception).

 

Since we are having it in Feb (during high season) I'm telling guests that the total cost with airfaire would be somewhere between $1100 and $1400 for 5-6 nights.  But I am letting people come and go as they choose.  If they want to make it a longer or shorter vacation that is okay with me =)  I live in California and our guests are coming from all over (California, Washington, Oregon, Michigan, Indiana, etc -- hence the destination wedding!)

 

Happy planning and have a great time visiting!!!

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
