Hello Girls..

 

Pam: I agree with all the other girls... rant away we are here to listen.

 

So this is what I did so far after reading all the threads

 

Originally I signed on for the Dream package but realizing it is not what we wanted and thanx to this thread.

We were able to switch to the free package and Jamaica Experience. (super excited)

So if you have 50 guest?

10ppl free then $20 x 40 = 800

Jamaica includes 20ppl then $50 x 30 = 1500 + 2800(for the package price)

 

So this is what we are going with....

 

But never realized we have to PAY for our bridal bouquet.... I though in the package it is included? I never inquired about the decor yet.

 

We chose the beach gazebo.

I was told in the email that it comes with this white linen and small table and flower centre piece so I don't think we will add much to it... keeping it simple.... (but we haven't looked into it yet =) )

 

The dinner portion as someone already mentioned

We can have it on the beach (at no extra cost...for this location fee of 300dollars or something like that)

 

Have you guys thought about bringing your centre pieces?

So I was told by Laura: each table includes white linen and napkin and "a few tea lights"

I was thinking we have max 5 tables or so? Have your family bring the vase you are going to use and add your personal touch (sand is everywhere) and some silk flowers if you like flowers??

 

Hope this helps?

How is everyone doing with their planning? I'm now 7 months away!! I feel like it have soooo much to do.

I booked directly through Sunwing. I received pricing from a few travel agents and they were all coming back with the same price as Sunwing or higher. Finally just settled on going directly with Sunwing. The only thing I don't like about Them is they don't act as a traditional travel agent, what I mean by that is the bride and groom are responsible for collecting names and CC information from the guests. Guests are asked not to contact Sunwing directly. I didn't realize this until it was too late... Wishing I had gone through a travel agent :( I really don't need all the extra stress of getting everyone's info.

Hi Ladies.....I made it back from my mini vacation to Jamaica.  I had the chance to stay at the Royalton and met with Chandlyn (wedding manager).  Chandlyn is really nice and very helpful with all of my endless questions.  During my visit I also went to Secrets and Iberostar.  I have to say that Royalton is a much better choice....only downside is the regular rooms are a bit small, which I will let my guests know in advance.  The presidential suite and honeymoon suites are very nice!!  (We stayed in Presidential).  

 

We have booked our stay for the wedding with my travel agent and we were able to get 8 nights in the Presidential Suite for $2800. (Very nice deal!) 

 

I am now working with Ellie to get the wedding booked.  We are doing October 10, 2015 at 5 pm. 

 

I have posted pics in the photo gallery - Royalton White Sands.  I have a lot of pics in there but I tried to put a little of everything in there. 

 

There is also a rooftop location that you can use for the ceremony or cocktail hour, the only draw back is it steps (no elevator) and it is very steep to get up there.   That is very beautiful!!! 

 

I hope this helps......happy planning!


@@pamelas21.....I have posted the photos in the gallery.  It is titled Royalton White Sands.   I included pictures of the conference room so I hope this helps. 

 

The conference room is really big.  Chandlyn stated they are in the process of getting the room dividers but it was very nice!

 

Hope this helps.

@@FutureMrsGlover thanks for the pics!! It makes planning a little easier. I wish that I was able to go to the RWS when I visited last month but we felt that it was a little too far away and we were only down for a couple of days.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
