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.
At Helen G Events, if you are getting married in Jamaica we suggest to those who are not opposed to having their wedding ceremony and reception at the same venue to try and book at a venue where you can stay at as well as host your wedding and rehearsal dinner, why? A good wedding planner will be able to negotiate better discounts with that property for you as you will be bringing alot more business to them. They will not only be accommodating you and your guests which in itself is enough if you are booking over 10 rooms but also catering your event.
At Helen G Events we do offer a location search service, where we help brides find the right location for their destination wedding in Jamaica . Its also cuts down on the cost of having to fly to Jamaica to find a venue as we send pictures to you of all locations recommeded. You only fly in if its a must for you. But for brides on a budget this helps to eliminate that cost.
Jamaica is noted for its beauty and its white sandy beaches but this year the trend from many destination brides to our island has been to stay away from ceremonies and receptions on the beach. No sand between the toes for many.
This year we have noted an increased request for luxury villas with sea or mountain views and garden settings with a view of creating a tropical laid back reception. I call it tropical chic. Most brides are going with the venue they love and working with the limitations if any of that venue.
Brides are doing it my way and are not letting tradition dictate how they see their special day.
This year we have been receiving alot of requests for weddings in purple, fuschia and tropical colours such as yellow and coral.
We are really loving the purple right now . We did a sample table setting with it and its looking fabulous.
Some persons are keeping it muted and going with an all white or ivory theme.
At Helen G Events we have our ear to the ground and we are one of the top planners in Jamaica so I will keep you posted on the hot trends for those getting married in Jamaica this year.
At Helen G Events we advise that when getting married in Jamaica during December book your location at least 8 months in advance as alot of the venues islandwide cater to corporate functions during this period.
