Hi Brides! 

   Just browsing through all the posts, I'm getting so excited! I'm getting married March 25th, 2015. 

Any other brides getting married at that time? 

 

Congratulations to everyone :)

Hey everyone!

 

I'm getting married on Feb 26, 2015 and was just wondering if anyone has figured out their centerpieces - I'm having a hard time figuring out what to do! Every quote I got back from the florist was crazy expensive.

I'm starting to stress about how Royalton wants to annihilate my wedding budget LOL. The DJ is extra cost, wedding cake is extra cost, dance floor is extra cost, extra guests are extra cost... I don't even want it to be a fancy ceremony/reception but even the little things add up, plus I'm Canadian so all the prices in USD add up even more for me.

 

How are y'all handling the sticker shock?

hi ladies- wish I could be more consitent with posts, but have been SO busy with wedding planning :) and i'm sure you all are just as busy!
 

i too cannot beleive the pricing for RWS..they nickel & dime absolutely everything! My wedding is 4/18/15 and as of right now i have 85 people booked....expecting close to 100 by the time the wedding comes around. crazy!! im excited so many people want to join us, but did not expect for this type of crowd.

 

we are bringing our own centerpieces, and decor for the arch. our ceremony will be on the beach, and our reception by the pool.

 

one thing i still need help with is securing our photographer. We had at one poitn decided to go woith Chris Clare, but he wanted full cash payment the day of the wedding. Im from NY and never would I give someone 1750 cash and then "hope" I receive my pictures later. I offered to give some money day off, and the rest upon receipt of pictures. is that not the norm? or am I being too skepticla and allowing my NY experiences sway me??

 

open to your thoughts.

 

thanks!!

Hi @@mimiblak - The payment thing regarding the photographer seems to be the norm! Actually, I would consider payment "day of" to be not so bad. Most vendors I've looked at require full payment a certain number of days in advance of your wedding. That feels a little risky, because what if they don't show up?!  I booked Stacey Clarke and full payment is due 2 weeks in advance.

@@mimiblak @@Sayler @@Soon2beMrsJ

we all have April weddings! mine is the 10th! looks like that covers just about every weekend in April! 

and @@Soon2beMrsJ I am soon to be mrs J too! lol

 

hope planning is going smoothly for all of you! we had some hick-ups with the booking for our guests but I think we settled all that and we are looking forward to all the actual wedding planning! Definitely nervous about the nickel and dime stuff but we figure, we are in Jamaica, it should be beautiful no matter what, so no need to go crazy with extras!

@@bringahamsamwich, I'm actually getting married the day after you! I'm sorry you had trouble with booking...how many people are you having? Also, are you doing a private reception or having your reception at one of the restaurants?

 

@@pamelas21, how was your wedding?! I can't wait to hear how it all went for the founder of our little group. Hope it was everything you wished it to be! :)

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
