  1. That is weird I wonder if that is new. Because we had ours on Saturday?
  2. I used Michael and the pictures turned out incredible. I wish I would have remembered to have someone professional video tape. My friend did and it is shaky.
  3. We also did Free..semi private at Mammee Bay and honestly it seemed like it was private. There were two other wedding parties in the restaruant but they did a good job of keeping us each to our own part of the place. I didn't even notice anyone else!! And did I mention it was nothing extra. I spent extra on the private beach reception after the semi private dinner. It was well worth it.
  4. I looked forever for my AHR. I found one at Macy's and one at Dillards. I ended up wearing the one from Dillards. Right now they are all on sale.
  5. I got mine yesterday and I was married on June 14, 2008. They have my age wrong? Does that matter?
  6. We arrived on Thursday and were married on Saturday...
  7. Just in case you don't want to travel far: We got married at ROR and went next door to Sandals Dunn's River and were amazed. It was a 2 minute bus ride and was incredible. The people were so nice and even though the resort was smaller than ROR it was romantic and was wonderful. I highly recommend it and it didn't take anytime to go next door. Check it out!!
  8. Good Luck! We just had our AHR and the number of no shows was crazy! Also might have spent more than we ever agreed too!!
  9. WHAT I WOULD AGAIN: RIU/SANDAL’S DUNNS RIVER: I am so glad I got married at the RIU with family and friends and then went next door to the Sandal’s Dunns River for our honeymoon. It was such a nice change of pace and it was nice to have different food options. The RIU is huge and fun and Sandal’s smaller and romantic. SEAGRAPE RECEPTION: The beach reception was so nice and I highly recommend it. We booked the DJ and he made it a wonderful time. It was nice to have somewhere to go after our dinner that was private to my wedding. I put disposable cameras on the tables at the SEAGRAPE but the pictures didn’t turn out due to all the moisture. I don’t recommend those!! STALK the RIU until I got my upgrade it was so worth it when they finally moved us from the Junior Suite to the FULL Suite!! 4:00 Wedding- It wasn’t too hot and wasn’t raining like it was earlier that day and the transition to pictures, dinner and beach reception was perfect. WHAT I WOULDN’T: NOT REQUEST THE REHEARSAL: I wish I would have requested a rehearsal for my wedding party we were all a little confused about walking out etc without a rehearsal. FIND SOMEONE RELIABLE TO VIDEO TAPE: I regret not paying attention to who was videotaping the wedding. So my video is definitely shaky!! AHR: Probably would have skipped it. Fun but nothing compared to Jamaica!!
  10. I had cups sewn in and wore no slip. It was hot with just a dress on..
  11. I am organ donor...not a Dr or nurse but my brother passed away 2 years ago while waiting to get a new kidney and pancrease. It was heartbreaking that he sat on the donor list for over a year. So I tell everyone I know to participate. I would hope it wouldn't interfere with medical treatment!
  12. I don't think so I got married in June in Jamaica and am now regretting scheduling a AHR in July. It is two weeks away and honestly it was like planning a second wedding. We got married away for it to be fun and not so much planning and the AHR is now kinda a pain. So I so go away and enjoy!!
  13. Mine was the white daisy cake and it was two layered and we got the free package. It feed the people that wanted it out of the 22 there. I wouldn't upgrade!
  14. I got married on a Saturday and had the free package I went on Thursday to book him but his worker blew me off. So when I went on Friday morning he just expected I didn't need him. He said if you don't book him if you have a free package he won't show up! I had to come back to the RIU because I was still on the island later that week to view my photos. Just make sure if you order from home he charges you the same price if you would have ordered there. Because it's not your fault they are closed on Sunday.
  15. I had planned all my songs but the CD was lost so we went with the resorts music. Honestly I don't remember it and the ceremony was nice and it was about 15 minutes. Very quick and to the point. I thought about doing the sand ceremony but couldn't figure it out logistically so we didn't do it. I think it was nice and smooth and wouldn't change a thing.
  16. My girls paid for there dresses so I didn't have to about 100 a piece. I bought them barefoot sandals (15$), starfish necklace, earrings (25$) and cool bags with their names on them and flip flops etc. They honestly didn't mind paying for their dresses or travel. They actually thanked me for getting married they got a great vacation out of it!
  17. I sent STD's to about 50 people. Close friends and family I thought might go to the wedding (22 ended up going). I didn't send STD's to anyone we weren't close too. The invites are a different story we sent 200 out to the people who we were close to and those we had to invite (family obligations . What sucks is the extended people are the only ones who haven't responded yet
  18. I asked within the first couple months. If these are your good friends you know right away..and I couldn't keep it to my self any longer. I sent them personalized cookies to ask them and almost couldn't wait the week for them to be made and delivered!!
  19. I just got married last weekend and we used a credit card with Michael. He charged us a 5% fee but it was worth it to not have to carry that much cash!! I used CC with the hotel, DJ and Michael so I didn't have to carry much cash at all. But make sure to call your CC company and tell them you will be going out of the country.
  20. My husband wore a light blue linen short and linen pants. He was fine for the wedding at 4:00 but changed into shorts for our beach reception.
  21. I agree it's not about the ring it's about how people treat the ring. I didn't care what my husband bought me I said "If you are thinking of me when you buy it that is all that matters". I had friends tell me I was stupid because I would be wearing this for the rest of my life I better get what I like? But honestly I think that is silly to place that much on a ring. My biggest pet peeve is when people say look at my ring and say so how big is it?? I am like really? It's almost like asking how much I make a year..NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS...it's my ring and I am happy.. : )
  22. I am having a AHR so I only invited friends that were invited to the DW and the AHR..A large group showed up but most are coming go the DW and the AHR...
  23. I got a months worth of Valtrex..yep Valtrex. You can take it daily to prevent getting any or as soon as you feel a tingle you take it. I get them often and worried I will get it close to my wedding. My gyno prescribes it..so worth it.
  24. I vote for personalizing it...they will appreciate the thought !!
  25. My older brother passed away 2 years ago so my sister MOH gave me a pearl bracelet with a silver charm on it with my brother's picture in it so I can wear it at my wedding. I love it!! Then to remember my FI grandfather who passed away last summer I got one of his old hankerchiefs from his grandmother and had his initals embroidered on it in our wedding colors. I am going to give it to my FI the day of the wedding to put in his pocket. So he will know it's there but everyone else doesn't have to...
