  1. My husband and I were the first to arrive. We had abot 6 bags between the 2 of us, plus a dress. I was SO sick and tired of lugging that thing around. Basically, we stacked all of our luggage together and then just draped my dress and his duit (both in heavy-duty garment bags) over the luggage, no worries! No one is going to mess with your dress. No one even touched our luggage until we headed to our room.
  2. Did anyone notice Nigel and his snide comments towards Travis this week. Yeah, his dance was kinda contemporary and not very Jazz. But when he was talking about Tasty Oreo's Jazz coreography, he made it a point to thank Tyce for a "real" Jazz routine. They panned to Tyce and Travis was sitting nex to him with a frown. He (Travis) said something but you couldn't tell what. I think he was pissed.

Oh, and I've always wanted to tell you that your siggy pic is one of my fav wedding pics that I've seen! Yeah its not quite as exciting as it would have been if I were, say, 11!!! Thanks about the comment on my pic I still look at all of them - and love em all. My photog was the best. Good luck with your wedding! If you haven't stayed at a RIU, they are awesome!
  4. Its not a bad gift...but I had always wanted a Samantha doll (you know, American Girl?). My neighbours have a (not so anymore) little girl who had a bunch of them and when I would babysit we would play with them. Fast forward to my college graduation. I am getting nice and needed stuff (like money!!) and I open my neighbours gift...its a Samantha doll! They were like "we know you always wanted one!" Ummm I am 22!! WTF am I going to do with an American Girl doll?!?! Suffice to say, its 6 years later. The doll is still in its original box. I wrapped it tightly in like 5 garbage bags to keep the air/bugs out and its in my parents attic. Hope its still nice and new because my niece will be getting her first American Girl doll from me when she gets a bit older
  5. It rained in the early early AM of our May 9 (2009) wedding. I would not worry at all. Once the rain passed, there was nothing but heat and a LOT of wind! Then the wind pretty much died down once the sun went down and it was hot again
  6. Tina - I would guess not since they have equipment to set up and the ceremony will last about 30 min, so you might end up paying for very little time.

Where did you buy the paper bag candle holders that you had on the ground? I have been looking around for something similar. Thanks, Kristyne There was a salad bar. Included was a salad bar, baked potatoes, various side dishes, 6 proteins, a dessert bar and rolls. Way more food than you would ever think you need They cooked the protein right there on a grill. The food was fabulous and amongst the best we had during the week. Mammee Bay (the semi-private) was good, but the food took FOREVER and my sausage was very undercooked.
  8. Wow thats really expensive!! Maybe with all the business that she had been getting she jacked up her prices. Quote: Originally Posted by Jenna in Jamaica I just got an email back fro Sheila and she quoted me for $470 US!!!!! Yeah, and my cake is super simple and I'm only going to have 25 people. I would love to post a pick but after countless hrs trying to learn how to post pics I give up.
  9. My cake would have been more than enough for 50-65 people We had more than 1/2 cake left over and we had about 28 people
  10. Sheila's was fabulous. I had a beautiful cake - yellow cake with strewberry filling and buttercream frosting. I just decorated it the way I wanted it once it arrived on site. For me, it was worth the small upgrade (I think it was $250 or $300 - feels like a long time ago!)
  11. We actually had the poolside reception and I would not have changed a thing. We didn't have the option of SeaGrape since the beach party was on that night (Saturday), but the setup was perfect. People could go down to the sand if they wanted, but most people just hung out at our poolside reception area. I really wanted to wear my heels (which came off like 20 mins later), which I would not have been able to do in the sand. The poolside reception was also tucked away pretty privately, so other than a rude couple, we were left alone. I don't think that you can go wrong either way, though
  12. I actually had no issues at the SS Office with my official certificate. When I brought the certificate to the DMV in NC (Charlotte), I was told that they cannot accept the certificate since its from out of the country and sent me off with a Name Change affadavit that needed to be notarized. Luckily my bank is next door to the DMV office..very aggrivating after waiting in line for 30 mins!
  13. Maureen - thanks for that info. I thought that I would have to pay to get my passport changed. Nice to know I have a year
  14. Ok, what did Stephanie do to herself?? I mean plastic surgery? Lost a lot of weight?? What I didn't even recognize her...

I really wanted to get on my hubby's insurance before the end of the year. I was able to take care of insurance without the official one with no problem. I didn't even try with SS or license. Going to finally take care of SS today.
  16. We just bought 2 glass jars (the ones with the cork bottle stops) at Michaels. Of course, we forgot our funnel, so we had to make one out of paper 5 mins before the ceremony but oh well. Ladies, be prepared to have to pour the sand out when you get home and re-do. Bring some sand home with you if you are using beach sand (we used some from Jamaica). We were careful and carried ours on, but just a little shifting and it got all messed up.
  17. Emily - Did you receive confirmation that you could bring Brian on property? The same thing happened awhile back where rumors went around that Jamaican RIU's were not allowing outside photogs, and the onsite photog was charging a "breach of contract fee"...but we only had to pay the day pass for Brian and nothing for the cake. But other than photog and maybe cake, what other outside vendors are you going with? Quote: Originally Posted by blumenthale A Cabo bride just received any email from her RIU WC stating that no outside vendors are being allowed, it is a new rule. I have not received any such email. Has anyone else? I emailed my WC just in case but have not gotten a response. Any info?
  18. Just got mine yesterday Didn't look at the issue date, but it came right from the ROR.
  19. Yeah, we are going on 5 months soon....but we finally got confirmation (FWIW...we will see if it comes) that our certificates were sent DHL on Monday. Apparently, the Jamaican government is behind...but then why are some getting theirs faster than others? I think it might have a little to do with the WCs too.
  20. My TA has FINALLY gotten a response from Chandlyn...ROR received my marriage certificates on Friday and are they will be sent today via DHL. Maybe now I can finally change my name
  21. They have beautiful invites. Another option is ETSY!! You can usually find exactly what you are looking for, or have something custom made. Crafty, but not too expensive. I think we paid like $250 for 60. I can give you the name of the girl we used if you'd like.

They look pretty real and taste good.
  23. Wow! Thanks for the update on that one!! I knew Tai could pull it off for you Wasn't the ROR absolutely perfect?? Can't wait to see those reception pics.

I returned home to a UPS note on my door saying they attempted to deliver the Bittersweet package. It had a note that COD was due in the amount of $22.26. Is this chick crazy! I had paid her in full! Whatever! That package can rot at UPS until they send it back to her. I am not going to pick it up b/c I will not be responsible for that COD or the return postage. I recieved the refund of the final payment from my credit card company. I filed a complaint with the BBB to get my down payment back. I will keep u updated!!!
