  1. We got married 1 april, and receives two certificates about 4 weeks ago. But these were the wrong ones, because they got no stamp. So we have to wait longer i guess..
  2. We got it the night before we left. about three weeks after the wedding ( we were there for three weeks. So we let them take there time to fix the film. It was great btw! Really nice, I would highly recommend to do the video! All our friends and family loved it. And I cant get enough watching it. And it is great to show your kids 1 day...
  3. Yes, I got it Too, about two weeks ago. I thought it was really quick. If you havnt received yours yet, I would concider contacting Chandlyn or Nikki. Good luck.
  4. Hey Susan, I do like soccer, my Husband is a big soccer ( voetbal -> as we call it in Holland) fan, he spupports ajax. We didnt do alot good the last few games, and were out of the champions league, makes my hubby very unhappy, and above all, our trainer Marco van Basten quit his job as trainer from ajax! F*king basterd!! Only one more game to go, and he leaves ...like a cowerd! we watch games almost everyday, but I dont always join the gang, only the big games! Well enjoy your Man U. and Barcelona game, Husb. will be watching too, I will probably be bringen the beer of and on :-)..
  5. I would definately do it all over again, If I could, ( wish it was possible :-( .. I wouldnt pick a different resort, the ROR, is Awsome! Sooo big, you wont get bored! The things I would change, well... we were there for 21 days, I wouldve stayed for 42 days..But I dont think my boss will agree on that LOL. The only last minute desision we made was going for the white chair covers with sashes. It looked great! Esspecially on the pictures. The original chairs are BUTT ugly! So I would recomend these... I hope you will have a great time, relax and try to go with the Jamaican flow, it dropped my stress level to freezing point.... ;-)

Thank you so much for the review, can't wait for pictures Thanx, 3 weeks was just what we needed, we had been working our buts off for the past 1 1/2 years for the wedding, ( since we paid the whole trip for everyone) So we really wanted to have a long well deserved holiday! We booked a taxi trough our touroperator, this men was really nice, He came to pick us up at 8 in the morning, and first drove us to Margaritaville in Negril. It is a 3 hour drive, but he stoped a few times, so we could have some beers. We went to Margaritaville first because there is nothing to do at Rick's Cafe before 5 in the afternoon. Margaritaville was ok, we relaxed on the beach and partyd a bit, the driver picked us up at 4:45 an we arrived at Rick's at 5. We jumped off the cliffs, had a few drinks, and saw the amazing sunset! The sun was gone at 06:30, and the driver picked us up at 7. We drove back to the hotel, and arrived there at 10:30. ( they dont drive that fast when its dark. It is a very long day, but is was all worth it!!! Have fun!
  8. Back from our awesome wedding at ROR! Hi Ladies, how is everybody doing, it took me some time to write my review. We have been back for almost a week now, and it was time for me to tell you girls how everything went. I will try to tell you as much as I can. Flight We had a great flight with Arke Fly. We booked us some seats in the business class, and it was amazing. Lots of space, champagne, a menu to choose from, and a comfy chair. Yeah, life was good. They even let me hang my dress in the closed. And we also received a special gift from the flight company since we were getting married. It contained all sorts of snacks, more champagne and a miniature plain. It was a great start! No delays It was a good flight, with a stop at the Dominican republic. We had to leave the plain, and got back in about 1 hour. We continued our journey and arrived at Jamaica 1 ½ hours later. Jamaica I saw on this forum that you had to hurry to get to the customs clearance or else it would take you ages to get trough. And since we were clearly not fast enough, it took us a long time to get trough. Everybody was very tired and cranky; we already had a trip for 15 hours behind us, and still had some time to go. Once we got outside our tour operator was waiting for us and brought us to our bus. It took us more then 2 hours to get to the hotel, that sucked, but Hey what can you do about that! No Problem!Once we were at the hotel, we discovered we lost 1 suitcase. But this was brought to us next thing in the morning! Great service! Check in Check in went fast, we got our famous cocktail, and we got hour safe and room keys quick. However 1 person of our party got the wrong key for 3 times. We found here two hours later at the reception, when we wanted to get ourselves some drinks, she was still standing there. I went to the reception, and got really angry with them. Within minutes we got a good key, and a fruit basket  with big apologies. We got to our room, nd I have to say, it was GREAT! So big, I loved the walk-in closed, the Jacuzzi in our suite, the Jacuzzi on our balcony. Yeah again life was good! We had a blast for 21 days in that room! Hotel The hotel is very big, but it is not TOO big. We thought it was perfect! Lots of restaurants, two cute shops where I bought some souvenirs, the pools were great. But we preferred the pool at the quiet part. We still had a great time at the pool bar (reggae bar) Bartenders there are the best!) We like to have a party, but I got really annoyed by screaming yelling people with there big mugs. I still don’t understand the mug thing. It looks so greedy. The bartenders give you enough drinks, and I like my drinks cool, so I liked to walk to the bar a lot. The pools are clean, except around 4 in the afternoon, in the pool bar area. If you know what I mean  The people who work at the hotel are very nice. But let me give you guys a tip. They don’t run any faster for you, just because you are waving with a few bucks! Its looks stupid, and its inappropriate. They respect you more if you tip them afterwards. Because then you show appreciating for the good services. Restaurants The restaurants are all very good. If people say the don’t have enough to eat, than I don’t know what the eat at home, but it is definitely too much! Breakfast lunch diner, there was always plenty! No complaints there. I loved the tushima. The sushi is gooooood . And The jurk hut at the beach was also very good! Entertainment We haven’t been busy with the entertainment much, but they were always there. But not persuasive enough to get us to join them. I liked the beach party, but every other week on Wednesday, they have a band, called ochie, and this was the best we saw. when we were there. They also played at our wedding night. Tours We did a lot of tours, Combination tour Nine mile tour and duns river falls. This was great! We went to Rick’s café in Negril and margaritaville, we jumped of the cliffs at Rick’s café, this was awesome!!!! We went on the black river safari, and to fire hole. We went to cranbook safari. Saw a few local markets, and went to ocho rios by ourselves a few times to shop. Easter weekend we went to a local event in the evening. A big stage wit lots of artist were playing, and we had the best time! We also went fishing twice with captain speedy. And we caught a w@hoo! Everything was great. BDW Ladies I met with Claire and Sarah at the hotel, and we had a great time! I even joined Claire and here husband Chris at there wedding. It was lovely. I would definitely hook up with some fellow BDW ladies if I were you. You can share lots of stories. And you can meet new friends! Wedding And know the wedding. It was all we had ever hoped fore. It was soooo beautiful. We met with Nikki a week before the wedding, and spoke about the wedding; we were done in about half an hour. She had a gift for us which was very nice of her. On the day of the wedding I did my own hair and make-up. We got the flowers 1 hour before the ceremony, so that was great! Nikki came to pick us up at 03:45, perfect timing! And the ceremony started at 04:00. The weather was great, and everything went exact as planned. We last minute decided to take the chair covers and sashes, and I had no regrets at all. It looked so much better then just the brown chairs. I had blue sashes, and on the chairs we put blue fans, and translation books. The flowers were not what I had hoped for, but they were ok, the bridesmaid’s flowers were great. And the boutonniere for my hubby and the rest of the party were also good. To bad they forgot my real hair flower I ordered, but thankfully I had a backup plan, I brought satin orchids just in case! The music was also spot on! I wrote my own ceremonies and the minister did a great job reading them, the whole ceremony took about 30 minutes. (We include a sand ceremony which was lovely! We had Michael for 1 hour that was enough for us; I already got tired getting all the pictures. And we did the DVD! We paid $300 for it, and it was worth it! Now I can show everybody how it was! After the ceremony and the toasting picture taking we went to the restaurant for diner. We had the Mammee Bay steak house, This was by far the best restaurant to our opinion! The steak there was SO juicy! Hmmm! The service at the restaurant was also great! The cake wasn’t bad, we we don’t really care for the cake thing. After dinner my dad surprises us with wishing lanterns he took from home. So we after diner we al went to the beach, and lighted our lanterns, it was such an emotional moment, everybody cheered when one lantern went up in the air! It was a great idea off my Dad. Love him so much. Afterwards we went to the bar at the stage part, and just when we came there this band “Ochieâ€started playing. They were awesome!!! We had the best day/night ever!!! What else What else is there to say…. We did so much, we had a great time, we were with a party of 17. We all left together at 26 March. Everybody stayed a week. And we stayed for a total of three weeks. So we had a 2 week Honeymoon. This was beautiful. We enjoyed the beach, the pool, the food and the people. We had the best time! Well ladies, this is it for know, If you have any questions you can ask anything! I will put the pictures on the internet soon, because I don’t know how to reduce the size and put them on this forum. So I’m going to out the on a wedding site. So be patient 
  9. Thats great, I also spoken to my wedding planner and she also said we wouldnt be needing the apostille!!! I wanted to share yesterday, but I been having some connection problems lately with BDW.. I'm also on Face book! I tryed to find you Sarah, but there are alot of Sarah cullen's on Facebook :-)... You can try and find me, but I have to say, I dont visit Facebook alot, ( Maybe once a month haha ) ...well Im getting ready her at this moment, Packing the suitcases, checking my lists with stuff... Im almost done now, and so extited to go to Jamaica.... just a few more days, and well be hanging at the bar :-D ..
  10. whooh whooh.... Thanks ladies!!! You Rock!! Hey Sarah, I will be definately be hanging around ( or somewhere under) the bar .... Its almost our time know! ( and dont you worry aboput that stupid apostille, I'm working on it, and let you knwo asap!)
  11. Sarah, Can you please tell me where on the site you saw this note? I have searched everywhere but I couldnt find it. I have my own wedding planner in NL that is arranging my documents and legalisations, I called here straight away, as soon as I saw your thread.She is going to find out what the matter is with this apostille. She told me that she knows what it is, but she also told me that it is not required for getting married in Jamaica. And if they would suddenly change pollicies, they would have informed here. Now I'm always very carefull, so I asked here to double check, and she will get back to me as soon as she knows anything. She also told me not to worry at this point, if Chandlyn allready approved all your documents taht you have send, that where required at first, that should be enough. But if they really changed policy, she will find out. I will get back to you guys as soon as I know anything. If you here from Chandlyn too, let us know... But for know just stay calm ladies... Breath 1....2....3 ...pffffff

  13. Hi Jennifer, welcome back, and congrats!!! Great to hear you had an awsome time! Your review makes me really exited, Im leaving in exactly two weeks, and althought I thought I would be extremely nerveous at this point, Im not!.. Im very relaxed, and starting to get in the relaxing mood, just like the Jamaicans :-) .. I was wondering, Im having some doubts concerning the spa. I want to do my nails the day before the wedding, but do the have acryl nails? I dont hava pretty nails for myself, and want to do them at the hotel. I read French Manicure, but here in Holland that means, cleaning brushing and some nail polish, thats it, also I have clip on extensions for my wedding, do you think the hairdresser is willing to use them and also do my hair? The only thing Im a little worried about is my hair and make up ... you cant do them in advance :-) ..

I waited until my FG reached the end of the aisle before I walked so I didn't follow close behind & he was able to see me & only me! How long is your song? If its 3 minutes or longer, I don't think it would be a problem for you to let your BM's walk, take a pause, then you walk. Maybe you can time it out yourself & see how it would work. I dont exactly know how long my song is... but I cannot time it, cause I also dont know what distence I need to walk.. I decided on using a different song for the bridesmaids, and Thank god I found 1, Im going to use "I'm yours"from Jason Mraz, I think it has a nice up beat, and some reggea touch :-) But Thank you so much for helping me figure out what way is the right way!
