Wow, how to describe our Wedding Day…it was beautiful, breathtaking, magnificent… PERFECT. Island Bride Jamaica did an exceptional job with the planning and execution of the absolute perfect wedding day for us. Planning our own wedding became overwhelming and hence choosing Island Bride Jamaica to assist with all the above was the best decision we ever made, I outlined my expectations and went over the general details of how we wanted our day and of course the day surpassed all the expectations we had!
We found the services of Island Bride Jamaica absolutely impeccable. Carmel and Shikima went above and beyond for us. Their level of expertise & creativity far surpassed my expectations. They settled for nothing but the best for my husband and I. Our wedding day was extra special because we had nothing to worry about as they took care of every detail. Needless to say, I was a very happy bride!
I knew it was going to be a challenge to plan a wedding in Jamaica "from scratch" as I'd like to say being here in Florida. I chose not to have a wedding at a hotel with their pre-a-porter wedding packages. I wanted to have choice and freedom to create a weekend for my family and friends that was unforgettable. After a couple false starts with some planners that did not work out, Island Bride Jamaica truly came to the rescue. What a fabulous combination. I had Carmel here in Florida to call and harass and who could call me and meet with me at the drop of a hat--and by the way harass me into keeping on task. And in Jamaica I had Shikima meeting with vendors and scoping out locations on the ground and always available for my after hours conference calls. You had the connections, the vendors and know-how to create a completely tailored "from scratch" wedding. I truly felt like I was given the all-star treatment (without the all star money). Without your hard work and vision my wedding could not have been the dream come true that it was. On my wedding day I was so relaxed that family members were in awe--but all the time I knew that my secret weapons Carmel and Shikima would do all the worrying for me and make sure everything was absolutely perfect---and that you did.
I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful work you did on our wedding. We had a wonderful day and that was due to the work your team did. Thanks again and wish you all the success in the future.
So I have to preface this by stating that I absolutely hate planning anything... I mean ANYTHING. This being said, working with Island Bride Jamaica was a truly refreshing experience. Carmel was always available. She helped me organize my thoughts and ideas in order to shape and mold my vision and create the most amazing day of my life. I would recommend Island Bride Jamiaca to anyone who wants to have a fabulous and extremely well organized wedding.
Keep up the great work ladies!!
Thank you for your service. I’m at a loss of words to describe how impressed I was with your service and support. It was my most valuable investment to date. You worked so well with my vendors, they too commented on your service…not sure if you have previous relations but you integrated almost seamless like a team. Your work attitude, organization, execution was absolutely remarkable. I had no idea what was happening behind the scenes, but to myself and the guests it was perfect and exactly what I’d hope for.
Thank you all so much again. I have no regrets. By the way, this is my first review I’ve given a business that really from my heart. I’ve been recommending every bride I know to Islandbride
Island Bride Team,
There are few times in ones life when people surpass your wildest expectations. Shikima and Carmel you guys were amazing!! My heart is elated! You have made Gordon and I's special day, a day to remember for all.
Island Bride Jamaica, THANK YOU. You made planning a wedding fun. It didn't feel like work as you did most of the work and took on most of the stress.
Our wedding came out exactly how we envisoned it, better yet it surpassed our expectation. Thank you for being part of our special day.
Damian and I truly appreciate how hard and diligently you worked on our wedding to make everything successful. As soon as you came onboard we had the sense that everything was being taken care of and no stone was being left unturned. Even though I’m sure you work on ‘tons’ of weddings you put all the effort into ours as if it was your very own wedding day and we, really, really can’t thank you enough for this.
I wanted to let you and Karen know how much I appreciated your service. The wedding was AMAZING and it all had to do with your referrals for the vendors and your diligent work on the day of the wedding. You guys ROCK!
After meeting with a few wedding planners, I quickly realized that Shikima and Island Bride were the perfect choice to assist me in planning my November wedding in Ochi. Living in Florida and planning a wedding in Jamaica was not an easy task, but Shikima was there for me for every step of the way to ensure that everything ran smoothly and according to plan. Not only was her customer service impeccable, but she was extremely responsive to all my needs and requests, and continuously followed up with my vendors and myself to keep us all on task. Not only was she a pleasure to work with, but she was able to cooperate and communicate effectively with a variety of people, all with different personalities and temperaments, and without being overbearing and/or pushy in any way. Several of my own vendors commented to me on her level of professionalism and her work ethic, which only reinforced what I realized from the very beginning of this process...Shikima is AMAZING! Not only is she well versed in all aspects of wedding planning - she reminded me of and addressed details that I had often overlooked, but her expertise allowed me to fully relax and enjoy my wedding day because she and her team were there to handle all the details. I initially contemplated doing without a wedding planner to cut costs, but I can easily say that Shikima and Island Bride were the best investment throughout my entire wedding planning process - they exceeded my expectations and were a pleasure to work with. If you are considering planning a wedding in Jamaica, look no futher, Shikima and the Island Bride team can more than handle the job!
Our wedding was a dream come true and it would not have been possible without the assistance and guidance of you all at IBJ. In the future, should Marvin and I ever plan an event in Jamaica, IBJ will be the first we call :)
