Hey FutureMrsGlover,

 

I can't use Jan's - confirmed with wedding planner - you have to use Tai Flora.....

 

Hey actually quick note I read on Tripadvisor the other day that the resort offers a courtesy shuttle to Margaritaville in Montego Bay Thursdays to Saturdays - you choose between 5pm-9pm or 10pm-2am.....sounds like a fun idea!

Pamelas21 not too sure what I'm going to do with the paper lanterns. I'm not even sure where they would hang them but I'm hoping they can be used. I plan on buying some batteries powered led lights for them.

The wedding coordinators told me setting up my decorations wouldn't cost. I'm not going to bank on that one lol!

Did Merrick honour the original pricing he quoted you? The prices he sent me were away more than the ones you posted :( I love his work and Dean Clarke. Of course the 2 most expensive photographers and they don't cover the resort fee :(

Margaritaville sounds like a fun idea! Although I think quite a few of my guests would be a little mad at me if I suggested an activity off the resort that makes them pay for food and drinks when they get those free at the resort :unsure:

 

Btw, I saw on another forum that to insert a pic into a post, you use the Image link (under the smile face) instead of attaching the file. You have to have the picture uploaded into your gallery, but then you can use the Image Link of the picture (available on the picture's page under Options).

 

So here we go...here is a snapshot of the save the dates that I made for our wedding. Let's see if it works.

CherJK they are awesome!! Very nice :) and good job figuring out how to post a pic. One question, how do I upload a picture into my gallery? I don't even know what that is lol!

There may be an easier way, but what I did was click on the "Photo Gallery" link at the top of the page (after "Vendor Reviews"). Then I created a new album which I was able to add pictures to. This gallery now appears in the "Gallery" section of my profile, and I can upload pictures directly to the album from there as well.

 

Btw, the picture looked really big before I posted it, but it was a normal size after.


Random question for you ladies: what are your groomsmen wearing? I want a more casual look than a full suit, so I was hoping for either a vest or suspenders, rather than a jacket. However, the best man is a large-built guy (a little overweight) and I want to ensure he feels comfortable in what he is wearing. Looking online I wasn't really able to find many pictures of bigger groomsmen wearing either option (they tend to be in jackets since those are the most flattering). Does anyone have any insight into what may work well?

Wow, thanks ladies for your post. I am deep in the ocean now, and have made a final decision on Royalton. However, after reading all these post, this wedding is going to go WAYY over my budget. I didn't know about the rose petals, which I have already ordered and now can’t use . I also did not know about the set menu. I thought that you could just pay the extra, and do the buffet style. Lastly, the decor, from what I have read it will be a lot of $$$$$$ to have the decor, the way I would like for it to be setup. I am trying not to get discouraged, but goodness, this is getting ridiculous, on these prices.

Hey Bridetobe771,

 

Yeah Laura told me that décor we bring from home would not be extra BUT if there is a cost it wouldn’t be more than $250….so at least you know what to expect!

 

Yes, Merrick honored the price he quoted me….I’m paying $2,600 for 9 hours…he’ll arrive at 2pm and stay until 11pm. I’m also paying the vendor fee of $450.

 

How much did he go up by?

 

I loved Dean Clarke too! I never got his pricing though because he was already booked on my day….

 

Are there any other photographers you’re looking at?

@@pamelas21....that is great to know about the shuttle.   That will work out perfectly!

 

@@FutureMrsGlover

 

YAY! :D

Happy to hear about the shuttle to Mo Bay.  Thanks for sharing.

 

@@Brinley

 

No problem! :)

@@pamelas21 , I had to switch hotels, I am now getting married at the Royalton, how has your experience been thus far ?

 

@@atennille

 

Congrats! I didn’t do a site visit but a couple ladies on this forum have and they’ve shared photos and it looks like an amazing place! Can’t wait to have my feet in the sand <3

 

My experience has been noted on this forum! I got all your likes so I assume you read through it which is great! :)

 

There have been bumps but there always is! It’s not specific to this resort! I’m sure there would be bumps if I’d picked a resort in Mexico too! It’s hard planning a wedding from so far away too….

 

So far my biggest complaint is that we have to use their provider for floral and décor and I’ve already voiced this! I figure that’s enough! Don’t want to put a damper on anyone else’s day! <3

    • 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. 
    • 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?
