Hi @@WesnKris Im hoping to get married in the Rose hall area on 04/24/15. We are currently looking at the aqueduct for our venue, but are not sure about our reception. Have you done a site tour of the Iberostar hotels? Also, do you have a wedding planner or will you doing all of the planning? I don't know where to begin :)Thanks so much for your help!

@@skelly0386...I did a site visit to Iberostar Grand and Rose Hall.  Very nice accommodations. My issue was I like the wedding location Rose Hall and the reception location at Grand....however, you can't switch up.  You have to do both the ceremony and the reception at the same hotel.  So I am now looking at Secrets and Royalton White Sands because based on the pics I like there ceremony and reception locations better.  I am going on another site visit June 6th so I will post pictures.

Thank  you @@FutureMrsGlover! We will be having our wedding at the aqueduct and reception at the Iberostar Grand. We went on a site tour of the Grand and I did not like their ceremony options, so we decided to just have our reception at the port maria restaurant and wedding offsite. We put down the deposit and everything seems to be falling in place. Good luck with your June 6th visit :)

Hey everyone! My fiancée and I have booked our wedding at the Suites for October 24th, 2015! I am so excited!

So far I am looking into outside photographers as the resort photographers prices are outrageous for what you get. I have received my save the dates and will be mailing those out next week! I haven't decided on details like ceremony location or reception yet bc it all depends on our final guest count. We really want a beach reception but I've heard stories of being too windy etc so I am sort of skeptical on that.

How is everyone on the planning process? I had my invitation saved online but I guess it's gone now :( I searched through hundreds of invites on the site I had it saved from but no luck :( I've chosen a new invitation though, will probably be mailing those out at the beginning of the year. I've been thinking about decor and things but haven't made any final decisions. I'm also waiting to go dress shopping so I can go with my mom back home in Boston. Since we decided to not have a bridal party, I'm finding it hard to pick a color theme! I really love coral and teal so I may try to find a few things in those colors to add to the ceremony decor. I've seen some brides with colored sashes they brought for the chairs and little starfish attached. Anyone know where I can find those? They're so cute.

@@helenk its so funny. You're the one with the date lol

 

I choose that date and had to change to the day before because it was booked. I never imagined that it would be book so early.

 

You can get sashes from tablecloth factory. They usually have anywhere for 20-35%off. The stars you can get from micahels, oriental trading, i dont know if you live near a bealls outlet, hobby lobby.

@@helenk yep will be there at the same time.

 

I'm using allinclusiveoutlet.com as my agent 3nights @$540 pp w/$50 deposit and $178 for each addl night.

 

This includes transportation to and from the airport/hotel. I haven't signed a contract just because I'm trying too see If there are any lower agents out there

@@helenk ,

 

Yea there photographers don't provide quality pictures so stay away. We took some from them when we went on vaca and let's just say that my Nikon took better pics.

 

I'm think I'm going to bring my own from florida

I'm using a travel agent/wedding coordinator through modern destination weddings. It's a free service, you only pay a $100 deposit, which goes towards your travel expenses. They help you coordinate with the resort, sort of like a middle man and are going to be helping with booking the travel at the lowest rates available for us and our guests and also with booking our honeymoon. The rates for flights aren't up yet so I don't have any quotes. When I was deciding on resorts I went onto Cheapcaribbean.com to get pricing ideas for that time of year and it had said about $950 pp for 3 nights (fri-mon) including flights from boston/NY (majority of our guests will be flying out from those cities).

@@jennifernoel1 We booked an outside photographer based in Jamaica. I read bad reviews on digipix and their prices were too pricey for what you get.

    • What are you doing for your wedding's road signs? so that your visitors will know where to turn to enter the area. Any pictures? I had created some road signs with a nearby signage business. However, I want to create 2 additional signs. Please provide images so that I may alter my design.
    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions. 
    • What purpose does a ring actually have? I think they look nice, but to me, wearing a ring doesn’t mean a damn thing. I’m engaged. I’m in a happy, healthy and strong relationship. And to be fully honest if you are ever in a relationship that you’d be willing to risk because of the price of an engagement ring, your partner could do better.
