Wedding Questions From You

For March 1st and 2nd we are inviting persons to ask us wedding questions about getting married in Jamaica. So feel free to post your questions on these dates  and we will try to respond as quickly as possible.

Thanks much and looking forward to hearing from you.

New Idea

This is not a new thing but I think if more destination brides to Jamaica are interested we can arrange for them to instead receive wedding gifts for them to donate to a local charity, nursing home, school etc in the town or parish where their event will be held.

Its something I would like to see happen more often a few brides have done it  but there are so many people in need worldwide and any little thing helps.

Budget Tips From Helen G Events

If you are getting married in Jamaica and are on a budget two things you might consider especially if you are staying at an all-inclusive resort are:

1. Just have a cocktail reception instead of a full dinner. Why pay for something your guests can get for free afterwards or are already paying for. Most resorts will charge you for that reception dinner even though you are staying on property. Prices usually start at US$50 per person.

2. When you check in, you can look at the restaurants they offer and you can book tables for dinner at one and just go in and have dinner after the ceremony together.

At Helen G Events we encourage you not to let family, friends and tradition run the budget but do what fits your budget and what you are comfortable with and best of all, happy with.

Wedding Cake Tips

At Helen G Events for brides getting married in Jamaica we have found the following to be true

1.  A square cake will yeild 10 to 30 percent more than a round one. So if you arent stuck on having a round cake this could be a viable option for you.

2. You can choose a small display cake or choose a display cake where only the bottom tier is real for cutting  and then serve sheet cakes. This will help keep this cost factor down.

3.  If on a budget you can serve the display cake instead of doing additional sheet cakes and the display cake.

At Helen G  Events we know you are on a budget and we are willing to work with you to get you to your ideal price point or budget. We are also open to suggestions.
