do sea winds have a website? Who would i contact to get a quote? Did you chose to go that route because they allow children or was there other factors?

i can email you the quote and info i received, msg me your email address. as for choosing there, i did for a few reasons 1. children are allowed 2. the food selection, they offer real jamaican food which i have alot of guests coming from the states and wanted them to get that experience (even though we plan on taking everyone into the city as well the next day). i'm also a big FOOD LOVER lol so that was a plus for me. below is couple who had their ceremony/reception at seawind. he's also the photographer i'm using for the wedding.

Thank you! I brought everything with me and checked extra luggage. We flew American, so we were allowed 1 checked bag each, 1 carry on, and 1 personal item. We both packed all of our shoes and clothes into our carry ons (a feat, but doable since my clothes were sundresses and bathing suits) and then we each had a garment bag as our "personal item." His had his suit, mine had my dress. They let me hang my dress and were super nice to us on the flights. We checked 2 big plastic bins (taped these up really well) for free and then paid $40 to check the third. All in all, pretty easy. Everything got there and I think out of everything only one bowl was broken, but I had a backup so it was fine. Oh I also had my parents check one huge suitcase of stuff. That got there fine as well.

wow that's alot of stuff american allowed! that's great! i'm looking for tickets now, hopefully i'll fly american as well! and $50 that's not bad at all. i don't know why i thought the setup fee was $300, maybe i was thinking about the vendor fee. glad it's cheaper!!!!

I used all of the Secrets vendors (except hair and makeup) and I was happy with everything! But you should feel free to look around and if you find great prices (that will still be great after you pay the outside vendors and day passes fee) then go for it!!

I think the setup fee ranges from $50-$300. I don't know what they base this on since I feel like I had a lot of stuff to set up, but I was happy it was so cheap too!

How much did you pay for your bridal bouquet?  They quoted me $315 on some sample bouquets I emailed over.  Ridiculous price in my opinion but I cannot stand carnations or daisies.  Your purple bouquet was nice.  Job well done on your planning and they way your wedding turned out. CONGRATS Ashley and Joseph. :)

My bouquet was $360 and it consisted of:  Purple vanda orchids, purple hydrangeas, purple lisianthus, purple calla lilies w/ bear grass accents. Loved it!

Hi,

 

I'm considering Secrets for my wedding next year. The bouquet that comes with the package is just carnations and daisies???? Anything else is an upgrade?

 

I am recently engaged and have just started researching ...

Yep, that is correct! For anything else you supply inspiration pics and they give you a quote from Tai Flora.

thanks for letting me know. i'm not a fan of carnations so this is good to know when figuring out how much to budget for flowers.

Hi, I am also having a November wedding at Secrets Wild Orchid.  Yes you can bring your own items but I believe they charge you a few. I emailed the resort pictures of what I wanted to just get a price quote and they are outrageous.  So I sent them an email back about just setting something up for me and I would bring all the materials for way less than what they are charging.
