Any "Royal Plantation" Brides?
Posted 12 January 2008 - 02:27 PM
My FI and I are getting married at the Royal Plantation in Ocho Rios this July. I was wondering if there were any other Royal Plantation brides on the forum? Would love to chat about RP if you have any info!

Is Shaunette your Wedding coordinator? She has been fabulous so far.
Where are you having your ceremony and reception?
We are having the ceremony on the beach and most likely reception in a private room. Although I would love it outside, I don't think my guests would like it.

I still haven't decided on flowers. :-( I'm pretty sure that I want calla lillies at the reception, but that's all I have decided so far.
Are your guest actually staying at he resort? None of mine are.

What color are your bridesmaids wearing?
Posted 21 March 2008 - 01:28 PM
We are only having about 15 guests so far that we know of for sure and they are staying at the Sandals and Beaches.
I opted to not have bridesmaids since we are having such a small group. My little sister is going to be a my assistant. :-) Just because she wanted to dress up, so she is going to wear a chocolate brown dress. Our colors are Chocolate, Ivory and Tiffany Blue.
Which wedding package did you go with?
Oh yeah, to answer your other questions. We actually have been to Jamaica before but never visited RP because we thought we were going to do it in Montego Bay. But all of the reviews just totally swayed my decision. I've only heard wonderful things about the resort. We really wanted a small resort too so it worked out perfect. It's a little pricey though which is the downside.
The only person we are working with is Shanuette. I guess once we get there though we have a new coordinator, do you know who that is yet?

we are only having one person each stand p with us. but my girlfriends all are looking for a similar color dress to my MOH. she is wearing a super light creamy alabaster. it is kinda a cross between a peach cream and pink. We picked the diamond package because I wanted to bring a lot of my own stuff and build a package. I want it to be like a wedding we would do here in the states but there.
andre is the go to guy at the resort and he is great he spent like 3 hours with me there going over everything. are you doing bags in your guest rooms? how about . we are doing a welcome party on thurs night before the wedding so all my friends and family can meet.
Do you have your dress?? what does it look like? i love the blue and brown thing we re doing all white and creams. very neutral.
how long are you guys going for?
we are going to stay at royal for 10 days and then we are going to turks and caicos for 4 days. I am soooooooooo ready to go!!!!!!!! what kind of decor are you doing on the beach?
i am so glad I am getting to talk to you!

I really want to have a runner at the ceremony site, but I think she quoted me something like 400-500. For a runner! I want flowers on top of it, so I was thinking about bringing my own. What were you planning on doing for that? We also choose the diamond package. The ultimate really didn't have much more that I was interested in.
We are doing bags, but since most of our guests are not staying at the hotel we are going to give them out at our "rehearsal dinner". We are taking everyone out to Evita's in town for that. I know someone who lives in Montego Bay, so I am going to send the decor boxes ahead of time.
We are staying for 8 days. You are lucky that you get to go on trip to the turks and caicos!! That sounds amazing!
I really wanted to have a reception outside as well. But I'm concerned with the heat. Are you worried about that at all?
The one thing I am concerned about is the photography. I wish we were allowed to use an outside photog, have you seen any of the photographers work?
My dress is very Non-Beachy. I bought it before I found out we were expecting... :-( so I might end up with another dress. Here is a picture of it.
