Secrets Montego Bay Wedding W/pics- Any Questions?

Recommended Posts

@@JamaicaNicole The Jambox is similar to the Pill, so personally I would just go with that. It was definitely loud enough, but honestly it's going to be the farthest thing from your mind at that point, so I'd say save your money. 

 

The DJ however is a MUST! Secrets picked the DJ. It was DJ Blu and I cannot express how much I loved this DJ. Hands down the BEST wedding DJ I have ever heard at ANY wedding. Seriously. My friends are STILL talking about him. Absolutely worth the $150/per hour. Do it, and you won't regret it. 


@@JamaicaNicole The flowers were a different story. I was SUPER picky about those and didn't trust the wedding coordinators to convey exactly what I was looking for. Sooo, I hired Helen G events to do our bouquets, paid the stupid vendor fee, and it was still cheaper then going through the resort. She did exactly what I asked, and they came out perfect. I couldn't stop staring at them. I wanted to take them home to Oregon!

Thank you so much for all of the feedback you have been so helpful! Did you get the DJ for 3 hours so just for the reception and not for the ceremony or cocktail hour.

We paid for just the reception, since we upgraded to the Steel Drum Band for the cocktail hour.... that was also worth the $200.

Uhh I know I completely agree about the vendor fee just because you choose to use someone else then them you get dinged with $300. I have an outside photographer coming in and have to pay it for that on top of a day pass.

So we used an outside photographer as well and I know we paid the vendor fee, but I honestly want to say that they didn't charge us for the day passes. I'd have to go home tonight and look at our final invoice to be sure, but I think it was just the $300 for the vendor fee. Also I didn't tell them about the flowers until we got there, and Helen was delivering them only, so I was able to talk them down to $100 for a vendor fee, so that worked in my favor.

Please let me know because when I reached out to them they said it would be $380 total $300 vendor and and $80 day pass. That is ridiculous they charged you even the $100 just for her dropping them off I think the vendor fee is ridiculous. We are spending so much money already and they are going to charge us a penalty fee for using someone other than the resort for a vendor that is not right. My cousin got married in Punta Cana and just had to pay the day pass that's it.

So I just looked and they did charge us the $380. I think maybe what I was thinking of is we had two photographers so they only charged us for the one and I had budgeted for two. So at least it was something.

Thank you for looking into that, sorry just one more question how many people were at each table.

The tables are 72" and seat 10 people. I think we had 8-9 at each to give a little more room

@@cora4600 Congrats on your wedding and thanks for posting a review! It's always helpful for the brides on the site when they get to read about other brides' experiences.

 

Your photos are gorgeous! Who did your photography? I'm a Jamaican bride too but October 2011 and we were at Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica in Runaway Bay. We loved Jamaica and fell in love with the island.

    • 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.
