I was married in Jamaica nearly 3 years ago at a different resort but I'm afraid I'm no help as far as your rentals. We were only 2 so didn't have to worry about having all the chairs, etc. Plus our resort had a gazebo right on the beach that was absolutely gorgeous and that's where we got married. You could flip through vendor reviews on this site to see if there are any that past brides have reviewed as far as their services and see if something comes up there that might help you out. Otherwise, you could also google providers and see what you find. The thing is if you're going outside of your resort you'll need to find out about outside vendor fees. Most resorts charge for using vendors that arent part of their set up. Some of the resorts will charge upwards of $1,000, while others are quite a bit cheaper but if you're bringing in a photographer, a florist, videographer or anything else, your outside vendor fees could add up quite quickly. And if your resort does charge an outside vendor fee, it could effectively eliminate any savings you might find from another vendor. You'll need to weigh it all out and find out from your coordinator about the outside fees.

 

Good luck!

Thanks. The fees aren't too bad weighed against the savings. I just want to make sure the vendors are reputable. Thanks for your help

Depending on the resort, they might look to charge for bringing in your own vendors. It may work out very pricey to use outside vendors.We're getting married in Negril this December. We decided to get our own vendors to come in, as it worked it cheaper for us, as the hotels prices were working out too expensive for us. Also we'd gotten recommended vendors by my Fiance's sister in-law, who gt married a few years ago. We're using Pat gar wedding services in Montego bay, they are organising the flowers, linens, and decorations.

We're using WPAJ ( sungold's associates). Good luck with all your planning :-)

    • 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?
