@@ashhtayy thanks for your response!!! I will be moving to the Always & Forever package and customizing my own! Are you ready for your wedding!?

 

Are you carrying your dress with you on a carry on when you fly? I'm scared to send it in a suitcase & it get lost.

Yes @@Rubyy we have chosen Shenko Photography. Their work looks amazing, however they aren't an approved photographer so there will be an $800 fee to pay for them to come into the hotel on your wedding day. To be honest, I don't care because their pictures look so amazing and they reply to emails really fast (I'm in London, England). I can't wait to meet them I feel like I know them already.

 

Check them out!

@@Rubyy No, definitely not ready but not in a panic - there's still time :) Most of the big things are out of the way at this point but need to set aside sometime to work on the little tedious things.

 

I am absolutely carrying my dress on - no way I'd put it in a suitcase. I would also be so scared it would get lost. I want to know exactly where it is at all times lol

Has anyone used the Dj service with the MC? How did you find them? :)

@@Rubyy I don't know if they have spray tanning but I agree with @@ashhtayy about it rubbing off. I would definitely recommend upgrading to airbrush for your make up. It was pretty hot on our wedding day and I didn't sweat it off at all. Like @@sassylouxx we used an outside photographer as well and paid the outside vendor fee. The fee was expensive but definitely worth it - we absolutely loved our photographers!! We used Photos in Cancun - they were amazing! They were actually guests at our wedding we got along so well. We got the smaller package and invited them to join us for the dinner and reception.  :)

 

@@KBrown I didn't use the DJs (we made our own playlist and just rented the sound equipment) but I know several brides have and loved them!

Hi Ladies,

 

We are getting married at Azul Fives on November 29, 2016. We are doing the ceremony and reception on the sky deck!

 

I was just wondering what the facebook page is called that everyone is trying to join? i tried looking up azul fives and karisma but I can't seem to find one that gives you an option to join. 

 

Also, does anyone have any good photographers/videographers they recommend? 

 

thanks!

For the reception what have some of you done for a head table?

Did you have your bridal party all sit together? I saw they have retangular tables and I was thinking of doing that for the head table then round for the guest. I have 10 people in my party including us, bride and groom, and was thinking about doing the Imperial table for 10 people. Now im thinking it probably sits 10 people, but 5 on each side and not everyone on the same side facing the guests. Hope this makes sense and someone can help.

@@KBrown We have 10 in our bridal party + us. We decided to do three rectangular tables for us and our bridal party and then rounds for our guests. If you look in my gallery I have posted the dimensions of the rectangular, square and round tables.

 

A few things I've seen...

 

- sweetheart table and then have the bridal party sit with their significant others.

- brides sit with their groom and his best man and her MOH and have the rest of the bridal party sit with their significant others.

 

Personal preference really! My girls all said they wanted to sit at the front with Mike and I so that's what we're doing :)

@@ashhtayy thanks for the response. I also want to have the bridal party together but like I said I want us all to sit on one side. Since I'm doing the tables from MM that can be really expensive to have three of them....hmmmm lol

@@ashhtayy hey! Question for you. When you spoke with your wedding designer in the Miami office did she speak good English and did you speak to the actual person you deal with through email?

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
