  1. Great thread! I absolutely LOVED planning my wedding and the fact that I was able to do it with my BDW ladies made it even more special. I'm glad it's all over and mostly lurk here as well. I'm loving married life. It's funny cuz hubby and I look at each other daily and comment on how great it is to be married and how happy we are. I know, I know, we're just corny like that. The biggest adjustment for me has been being a stepmom. We have a special needs daughter and she's taking a longer time to adjust to me being around all the time. (Hubby was a single dad.) So, learning patience on all l
  2. Awww! I just love this thread! All you mommies to be are to cute!
  3. I def think the Butler service is worth it for the room service and having a person at your beck and call. We wished we had one thru out our trip! If you can swing it, it's worth it!
  4. I experienced the same thing as a SGOR bride. Don't feel pressured to make any selections until you're ready. You will have the opportunity to get whatever you need when you get there. The onsite WC will give you all the help you need. I ended up basically ignoring my stateside "salesperson" WC as I got closer to the big day. My onsite WC was much more accomodating and helpful. Don't stress!
  5. I asked to join too! No place to add my BDW screen name. Gionne
  6. I chose a birdcage veil cuz I wanted to feel "bridal" with a veil, but not have to deal w/ wind, etc. I ended up doing hair flowers and the birdcage. I absolutely LOVED my veil. (Wish there was an excuse to wear it again!) LOL!
  7. After my ceremony and reception (we had the reception offsite) half of my guests (parents, older folks, etc.) went to the piano bar and had a ball and the other half (us and all the younger people) met up at the Manor side pool and did some lounging, night swimming and volleyball. It was nice to just hang out and chill after all the festivities. I think it's a good idea to keep things laid back, that day will fly by like a blur and it will be the chill moments that mean the most in the end. (taking time with your family and friends for unplanned bonding.)

Here's a thread that shows the different wedding locations at SGOR. Good luck with your planning! http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t20085
  9. I believe that you can hop resorts, but I think it's only the resorts in the country that you're in. For example, if you're at Sandals Montego Bay, you can hop to any other Jamaican Sandals for free. I'm not sure if it applies if you hop islands. Maybe TA Jennifer can clarify!
  10. I had several single guests at my wedding and they shared rooms. I will say that Sandals Grande told us that there were only king-size bed, but does have some rooms with double beds (queens). My cousin had a room that had double beds. They were the bungalow style rooms on the Riviera side of the resort and were pretty cute. It's probably safer to bank on having the one bed though since that's how the majority of the rooms are.
  11. I did personalized m&m's. I ordered 5 7oz bags and got one 7oz bag for free. This cost me about $60. I divided the m&m's into small baggies with ziplock tops and put a baggie into customized travel suitcase tins. I'm not sure how many guests you're trying to accomodate so I can't say how much you should get. I only had 40 guests and we had enough for our purposes (though one more bag would have been great to have!) Hope this helps!
  12. Kisa, I got the shoes literally the day before we left at a side-store at Tyson's Corner in the DC area. Thanks for the compliments!
  13. I'm 37 also and we plan to try for a baby starting Feb 09. I agree with the ladies who share that with great pre-natal care, healthy lifestyle, etc. everything should be fine. I'm banking on it!
  14. Wow, you looked beautiful! Loved your flowers and dress! Congratulations! Everyone looked like they had a blast.
  15. The majority of my guests (including parents and sister) stayed in the Bamboo Grove Building and I will say that it is very picturesque. I'll see if I can post some photos for you when I get home tonight. Yep, all this talk definitely makes me want to go back!
