    Hi Girls,


    I'm just wondering you are getting your makeup done at the resort? If you have already how did it turn out? It's quite expensive with the american dollar to bring in a vendor.

      Hi Ladies,


      I am getting married at The Royalton White Sands on October 22, 2016.  We have put down our deposit to secure our date however we have not reached the 4 month planning part yet.  I was wondering if you ladies could offer any advice for how to deal with larger parties.  The Royalton has all of their package based on 20 people, however we have more than that in the bridal party alone (including significant others).  It seems that they automatically want you to have a private reception if you have more than 20 people, and I am just a bit nervous about cost considering the cost could be anywhere from $30-$60 more per person for a private reception.  We are on a budget for this wedding and we would like to adhere as close to it as possible.  Also I was wondering if you ladies could offer advice about how you handled your photography.  The photography packages are very expensive and although I want to capture all of my precious moments I don't want to break the bank doing so.

      Hi HisMrsWright,


      We will be getting married at the Royatlon in 5 weeks. We too have a larger group. We are 50 people including my FI and I. Your budget really depends if you want a private or semi-private reception.


      We have chosen the private reception. There is a fee of $300.00 to change your reception to private. You will also be charged open bar per person per hour. You will also need to chose your menu and pay  for each person. We chose the free package which only includes 10 people and then paid the additional people. It was cheaper for us to do it that way.


      Feel free to ask any questions, I am done planning with resort and have already paid my final invoice.


      As for photography, we are in Canada and with the USD being so awful, it was better for us to pay for a local photographer. Her and her assistant will be spending the week with us and therefore we will a week worth of pictures rather than one day with the resort or someone local in Jamaica.


      Happy Planning!
