There's no need to register your marriage in the city/state. Your marriage is recorded in Jamaica. To help set your mind at ease, you could always have a civil ceremony here in the U.S. either before or after your Jamaican wedding to make sure all your bases are covered. We had a civil ceremony here before our actual wedding because DH lost his job and needed to be on my insurance ASAP. When we got our marr

  4. We took the plunge last night and made an offer on an adorable 3 bed/1 bath townhouse that is move-in ready! We think we have a pretty good offer out -full asking price, plus $5k in closing and we want the washer/dryer/fridge included in the sale. We're supposed to hear back by the end of the day today, so I'm sure I won't be able to eat or fully enjoy the holiday!
  5. Welcome back! I'm so excited to hear that you guys had an awesome time! BTW - were you wearing hot pink sandals in your wedding pics? I love them!

  7. I'm so glad to hear that you only got one night of rain! I can't wait until you post pics and more info about your wedding!
  8. I just wanted to share with you ladies that on Monday I am popping my last car loan payment in the mail! It will be such a relief to have one last bill to pay each month, and it's more $$$ to roll over into our student loan payments. This last payment is a big one - $2500, so the credit union will be thrilled I'm sure. This is a big deal for me because my car was my first purchase on my own.
  9. I used to think Tarot Cards were pretty cool until I drew the Death card and my hairdryer flew across the bathroom a few minutes later. Needless to say, those cards are now history. I ticked off somebody.

Do most people do hand written thank you's now? Good luck with this job! I've done both handwritten and email Thank You's and have been successful with both when interviewing for jobs. On the ot
  11. I'm so excited - our wedding dvd is being sent via DHL tomorrow, and we should receive it by Friday! Our wedding was back in May, and we were told it would take about 6 weeks for the dvd to arrive. Long story short, more than 6 weeks went by and no video. After sending an email, we received webstreams and approved the video, but nothing was ever sent. I spoke with someone just the other evening, and because of the delay they are sending us an additional copy of the dvd AND 50 webstreams free of charge. I would like to mention that Suzette, our WC at SGOR, was incredibly helpful with us t
  12. Hi ladies, Have any of you ever went back to work for a former employer? I ask because this is a serious consideration for me right now. For a variety of reasons I am unhappy with my new job and know that I made a HUGE mistake in leaving my last employer. Luckily, I emailed my former supervisor and it turns out they would love to have me return and are working out the logistics. If everything works out, I'll be back to just a 10 min commute every morning and won't have to pay tolls! It will mean a paycut and a lower position than I left with, but at this point it seems like a terrific vi

For all the brides who had their hair done at Sandals did you pay upfront? We paid upfront for EVERYTHING. If they don't request payment, or you know you didn't pay for something, make sure you do because otherwise it's likely not to be booked for you. This happened

Also, Darma mentioned something on the phone about sending me pictures of reception sites...I knew we picked our wedding location, but do you actually pick your reception site as well? Thanks We did the one hour hot/cold hor d'ouvre reception and didn't
  15. I just wanted to share that our Jamaican Marriage License is now in our hands! We were married May 21, so it took right around 8 weeks for us to receive it. I was thinking that the Jamaican license wouldn't go through because we were technically married in the states before our DW and didn't tell the WC to avoid any confusion or added fees. So now we're doubly married. As an FYI to Jamaican brides married at Sandals specifically - the marriage license is sent via UPS and you have to sign for it. If you're like DH and I and never home during the day, you'll have to make a trip to the UPS
