Thanks so much! It was a lot of fun to plan, and even more fun to actually experience! :) Best of luck to you as you plan-- BDW was a lifesaver for me!

As for the dress, we flew American and had to take two flights-- one to Miami and then a connecting flight to Jamaica. On both flights the flight attendants let me hang my dress in the closet. So nice! Having the big bag definitely helps. I'm sure you won't even have to ask-- they are just so happy to help a bride and they offer. I remember on our flight to Jamaica there were 2 or 3 other brides too and we were all able to hang our dresses!

Did you take any glass items in your bins? I'm trying to decide on table decor and the one that I really like includes small glass vases. I'm not sure I'll be able to find them in plastic. I don't want them all to be broken when I get there!!

Yes, we did have glass items-- bowls that we used as vases for the centerpieces. I wrapped everything in bubble wrap and placed them carefully, but in the end one of them broke. We had an extra so it turned out fine, but just be warned there is definitely a strong possibility that could happen! Be prepared with extras or a backup plan if necessary. Good luck!!

Thanks!! Mine would be small so hopefully that would help!!

Alexis, thank you, thank you, thank you! You did such a good job with your review I keep referring back to it whenever I have any questions about the resort!

 

I do have a quick question for you, which "bonfire" did you get? I saw that they had two options. One was $500 and one was $1500, and I couldn't really tell what the difference was other then the DJ. 

 

Thanks!

oops, one more question. Do you have to pay extra for the silver chairs? 

 

Thanks again! Your wedding was gorgeous!

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
