Hi! I'm getting married in September 2015 at Secrets Wild Orchid/St James (haven't picked the ceremony/reception location yet).I'm planning on having the ceremony on the beach and the reception in the larger gazebo area. Has anyone decided where they are having theirs?

 

I'm also thinking about using an outside vendor for makeup- does anyone know how this outside vendor fee works? I know its $300, but how will they know you have an outside vendor? Do you have to tell them in advance? Or can I add the vendor to my guestlist and pay for the day pass? I think that will be less than $300?

 

We are also planning on hiring the dj for the reception, but for the ceremony will they provide you with speakers? Will we be able to pick our own song to walk down the aisle?

 

Also, if you have over 20 people will they provide the extra chairs? Or will they charge you for the extra chairs or tables?

 

I have so many random questions on my mind, wonder if its too early to start emailing the coordinators? lol

Hi janc, I plan on having my ceremony on the beach and the reception at the casita area. You pose some good questions. I'm sure they will provide speakers. There is a sound system add on you can purchase. I'm not using any outside vendors, so I don't know answer, but when I email the wedding coordinator, they are responsive and email me back with answers to my questions.

@KG 1990 the WC has been helpful. Whenever I have a question, I email her and she emails me back in a couple of days. Now that I am approching my 6 months countdown, I'm sure we will be corresponding more frequently.

Congratulations on setting your date!! I hear the Secrets Wild Orchid is BEAUTIFUL!!

Getting ready to order my invitations. Wanting to do passport invitations. Question: is it wrong to order the passport invitations for the 25 -30 people who will be joining us and order a cheaper yet nice invitation to the other 60 guest who I know is not coming, but still want an invitation?

    • Watches as a gift can never go wrong. Couple necklaces, or special jewelry can also be a great choice. 
    • As a wedding gift, necklaces are a good choice.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Amazon it is a paradise for shopping. I always buy from this platform, especially when I look for a present. I've already set up Amazon Pro, for advanced buyers, and for free shipping, lol. In fact, I bought a lot of different products here. I like to make beautiful gifts, and packaging means a lot to me. I usually chose all the parts of the gift and then packed them at home by myself. But recently, at the wedding of my friend, I did not have time at all and I decided to look for a service that can help me. As a result, I came across a good website where you can buy different gift baskets. jetgiftbaskets.com I bought her a Wedding Wishes gift basket, and she was very happy. This service has excellent service, as good as amazon has.
