Hi Diana! Congratulations! I got married in Montego Bay last month and it was the best experience of our lives!
If you search you can definitely find an abundance of information on here. But most brides in Jamaica use Floral Fantasies or Jan's for their florals - we used Floral Fantasies for our reception centerpieces and they were gorgeous. Tai Floral was the preferred vendor at my resort, which provided my bouquet as part of the package, but when I tried contacting them for quotes for the centerpieces I never heard back past the original acknowledgement that they got the email. My resort did not charge a vendor fee for the florist if they just drop the flowers off, which was the case. If they would have come on property to set up than there would have been a vendor fee.
As for Photographers, again, there are MANY options! We used Stacey Clarke and many brides have issues with her responsiveness (or lack of) and the turnaround time to get your photos (4 months) but her style photos matched what we wanted. SunGold and WPAJ are very popular as well as Misha Earle. Many photographers will cover the resort vendor fee (Stacey did) so definitely inquire about that.
If you're hiring a DJ - DJ Kevan seems to be the unanimous pick! We had his associate DJ Dutch (Sheldon) and he was really great to work with.
HI everyone and am I so glad to have found you all :-)
I am planning my wedding at the Hyatt in Montego Bay after visiting quite a few resorts in June to make a decision. Decided on the Hyatt but now researching florists and photographers because the onsite one is expensive for what you get. I have to pay a vendor fee so hopefully it will still work out cheaper to bring someone in to film and decorate the venue. If I had a photographer in my wedding party that would have been ideal.
I look forward to reading the other posts and to receive any advice, recommendations with the planning process and if anyone knows or can recommend any of these, I would be grateful.
Sorry if this is a repeat request, but I will stat to read through the posts incase someone has already posted these recently.
Happy planning everyone and congratulations xx
