Unfortunately prices won't be up until around nov. But last summer our tickets were only $251. So since October isn't peak season I'm hoping it will be a bit cheaper

Yes definitely, I'm hoping the rates are good. Good thing about my TA also is the guests can just put down a deposit to hold the price for the package and just have to pay the remainder 50 days prior to the date.

    Hi everyone!!!

    Thanks @helenk for telling me about this thread. My date is August 8, 2015!!!!!

    That's all I got. I'm having a bridal reveal party in 3 weeks I'll hand out a few of my save the dates and will have them all mailed by the first week in August.

    Heads up just from reading the other threads the coordinators are usually slow to get back to you so don't stressed out. Loreto is pretty good but he's the manager for the WCs .

    I'm still working on booking a photographer and video. Really considering bringing a team from here.

    Flowers I'm either going to make my own or work with an outside vendor. The florist the hotel works with seems pretty pricey. I know the contract states we can't use an outside florist but I've read where previous brides have with no problem (unless this is a new rule)

    Dj I'm going to go with resort

    Reception I'm hoping to have a private one but that depends on the guests count (I only like calabash or aunt Ruby's....70 Or more ppl)
    Hosting a welcome party with a fire dance the night before

    If I have to have a semi private reception then we'll do dancing and cocktails with a dj on the beach.

    Coral and teal are pretty colors you can incorporate them in many ways....tie chairs, flowers for the ceremony, you can bring candles, vases or water beads

    @budgetbride2015 no problem! I've always gotten a response from. Loreto within 2 days. When my TA emails the response tends to be quicker ;)

    we booked Misha Earle! Super excited, her photos are gorgeous and prices are reasonable. And she covers the vendors fees!

    Prob gonna stick with the resort florist and DJ if we need one.

    Still undecided about private reception. Renting out the restaurant plus adding the cost of DJ and having to bring extra decor is a lot of extra money we didn't want to spend. Plus we don't know if we'll meet the guest minimum for that.

    There's an option to rent out the Mango Walk Disco for 2 hrs before it opens to the public and the fee includes the DJ and open bar! I just need to find out if there's any seating in there....it'll be awkward to just have everyone standing around.

    I wish I could post pics of ideas I've found for chair decor but I don't think I've met the post minimum for that yet :(

    You'll have to tell us how your wedding is since you're before us!

      What if you did a semi private dinner (FREE) And rented the disco for after dinner reception?

      We meet with photographer here this week my fiance prefers someone we know (I don't know why he thinks he should have an opinion. ..Lol)

      @budgetbride2015 @helenk @FutureMrsGlover

      I agree I think it's the craziest thing in the world that you would have to pay extra for an open bar at an all inclusive hotel.

      Are any of you using an outside vendor for the cake??

      @budgetbride2015 yea that was going to be my plan! But I still want seating cuz not everyone will be dancing the whole time I don't think l

      @jennifernoel1 yea I'm not paying for an open bar! If we do a welcome party I'm going to just make reservations at one of the restaurants or something.

      I'm going to just use the cake that is included in the package. We're on a budget so we're trying to maximize what comes with the package and with what we absolutely can't live without.

      The only additional cost so far is the photographer and whatever I spend on decor I bring and the stuff for the OOT bags.

      @helenk I agree.

      Trying to keep it as low as possible. But I do want my pictures to be very very nice so I'm willing to spend on that.

      @jennifernoel1 Yea I am with you on that. But I'm happy with the one we booked, her photos are gorgeous and we're getting a lot for the cost comparable to other photogs in JA.

      Great thread ladies. I am getting married this October at IBRHS. So far the email responses between the resort are usually within 48hours. They are very informative.
      We are getting married in the lobby location overseeing the resort. Our guest list as of yesterday is 25. We are hoping to have 40 so we can have a private reception. I have reservations about a semi private reception because it is only dinner and we would have to pay extra for a space. I think renting a tent on the beach and the dinner cost is ridiculous (especially because we are at an all inclusive). We are still seeking a photographer (but FYI sungold photography does beautiful work unfortunately they are booked on our date). I will return after the wedding to update and make reviews on my own experience.
      Good Luck :)
