Hello beautiful thread can you share your guest cost and are you having a private reception

 

For one week for our guests with round trip airfare and transfers to and from the airport it was around $1600/person for a regular Junior Suite. We're not having a private reception - we're contemplating semi-private or just non-private, we will probably decide when we get down there.

Aw thank you! You should definitely try it! I did A TON of homework and they have the best selection and prices. If you sign up for their emails you will receive coupons, or google their coupons and you can usually find at least a 10% coupon that will take care of the shipping!

 

Also Hobby Lobby online has their own line of "True Touch" flowers, they're very good also and you can usually find really good coupons for that too :)

 

I hear you! For $100 a bouquet I said NO THANK YOU! I paid about $40 for each of my girls real touch and they can have them FOREVER! I'm currently in the process of making my own real touch/brooch bouquet and will post pictures when it's finished!

 

Let me know if you need help!!

DIY Table Runners:

 

I saw these AMAZING table runners on Etsy but they were $20 a piece - yeah false! I decided I was going to finally learn how to sew and take a wack at making my own. So that's what I did - I purchased all of the material at Joann's with coupons and made my own runners! I love how they turned out. I am going to alternate the turquoise and coral chevron on each table.

This is what I'm thinking for table settings. What do you all think?

DIY Post Card Guest Book:

I put these together last night. I put one post card in each glassine envelope I bought on Amazon and put an avery label I printed on it. I really like how they turned out, I'm going to have one per place setting so hopefully they will take the time to fill them out, or have the option of sending them back to us after the wedding ( I would prefer before we leave Jamaica though so they actually do it!).

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
