Hi sarah I am getting married there in December 2013 I can help you as much as I can if you want to know anything. How many guests are you planning to take? I have about 15-17 ATM. I assume you booked with Thomson as you are also from the uk! Be good to hear from you Gemma x

Hi Gemma, yeah I have booked with Thomson I'm just waiting for some of my guests to book so that they will send my request through to the hotel! Which package did you go for? We are gonna have 16 guests in total I think, we are just going to have the basic package where you need 5 rooms min booked, the trouble we have is another family member gets married this sept in Vegas so some guests can't book just as they have that balance to clear in June... I'm starting to panic in case we end up booked with no availability to left to marry when we are there haha! Have the hotel been good with you and how long did it take them to get back to you with your date? I am gonna speak with Thomson tomorrow and see if they can just put my request in as we did have to pay a deposit for the actual wedding but not sure what that is to secure if they haven't even requested the date!? Fingers crossed!xx

Hi sarah, Thomson has been really good with us, I booked in November and requested fri 6th December at 5.00pm at the time of booking! They pretty much confirmed it there and then but still had to wait for the wedding pack to arrive this gives confirmation of the date and time from the hotel itself! Thomson should have god you available dates for your wedding when you booked? I booked the Royal wedding package at £1200 for about 20 people. To be honest my family and friends booking have been the most stressful part so far we go in 6 month and I still waiting for mydad to book haha! We was going to have the basic package but did Thomson inform you that you have to pay judges fees on top of your wedding that's why we upgraded the package so you get that included as it worked out at about £400? Maria the wedding coordinator is on Dominican time which basically translates as slow haha! But when you ask her a questions he is thorough with the reply usually takes up to 5 days on a bad week! I assume they have to wait for your 5 rooms to be booked before they offer you the free package don't worry I'm sure there will be plenty and on holiday i suppose it doesn't matter what day you get married haha! Hope this helps Speak soon Gemma x

Hiya, That's really good actually they didn't explain it like that... I might look into that with them but then I don't think there will be 20 of us... Have you got your dress sorted and everything? Yeah I'm wondering if they will be able to match the flowers to my theme etc... God not long for you now ey?xx

Hi sarah, Yeah not long to go for me! I'm pretty much organised just booked my hair and makeup with the spa, you get 10% discount doing it online, you can get her email address through the wedding coordinator and you have to pay half upfront through PayPal. I got my hair and makeup and 1 bridesmaids hair and makeup for $300. Have u had any update on your wedding date? X

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
