Congratulations! If you search for any of these items you'll come up with a ton of threads with information.

 

I'm getting married at Iberostar Rose Hall Suites on June 11, 2015 with approximately 75-80 guests. I've decided to use the onsite spa for hair and makeup. I love the idea of being able to do it in my room, but the vendor fee just didn't seem worth it to bring someone in and I've only seen GREAT reviews for the spa.

 

For photographer I'm using Stacey Clarke. She pays the vendor fee and her packages are really reasonable for the quality of her images. We decided not to do a videographer but a lot of people use Roxroy or Elite Media Concepts.

 

Happy planning!

OMG, that's exactly where I'm aiming for. My fiance wants to visit before booking but I have my mind set. We gonna visit on the second week of June and thats the week of your wedding!!!! That's awesome. Thank you for the info I'm gonna look them up.

Good luck with your planning.

 

I'm debating about a videographer still. Since our can't figure out a gift, I was gonna give everyone a copy of the video as gifts.

Oh funny! Well you'll probably see us there then! We'll be the crazy ones making too much noise and having too much fun :) 

 

We actually just bought a GoPro camera. Not so much for the ceremony, but so that we can take a ton of video of people just hanging out during the week. We plan to edit it into like a montage (or several montages) afterward because we think that'll be so fun to watch later on. We just feel like we'll enjoy that more than a professional video of the wedding. We'll just have a friend video the ceremony with a regular video camera.

I got married in Jamaica in 2011 at the Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica in Runaway Bay. We loved it! We used Merrick Cousley for our photographer and Roxroy for our videography and both were fantastic! We loved them both!

 

For makeup tons of girls recommend Rashel Edwards. I used the spa and I was disappointed overall. Rashel has a facebook page but she books up very quickly if you're interested in her. She is supposed to be fantastic and uses the air brushing. Even in the heat the reviews I read said that she does such a great job it doesn't melt.

 

Our 2 choices were Lady Hamilton and Gran Bahia and we went with Gran Bahia. No complaints at all. They were excellent.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!! I just got married in December, in Negril.

I used Debra Barrett from Queenbee beauty, and she did an amazing job with my hair and make-up!! She did airbrush make-up on me, and it was fantastic!! So light and it lasted the whole day!! She has a Facebook page and a website too, you can see some of her work!

For photography we used WPAJ, the associates of Sungold. Our photographer was Chris, he was super friendly and his attention to detail was amazing... can't wait to see some of our photos!!! Good luck with the rest of your planning!! :-)

Hi ladies, thank you for the feed backs. This site it's been helping me so much that I'm looking for the possibility of the Royalton white sand now as well. It looks super nice and the reviews have been great. So now it's just a little more complicated. Hopefully my visit in June help me decide.

As far as photography, I'm still looking. It's my main priority and I'm a far I'd to make wrong choice and regret it. I really like Watkins but he's sooo pricey name and because I love him so much no one else comes close enough. I'm definitely gonna contact the recommendations for make up. Thank you.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
