Yes they let us play our music. To be honest, we didn't ask we were in our own area and we just did our first dance while we waited for the food. No cocktail reception, except they did give us

I didn't make the flip flop book myself. I found a lady online that makes flip flop scrap books and asked her to make mine a guestbook. I found the flip flops and it was perfect because they were in my wedding colors and said Just Married. The price was good too. Here is her website: Scrapbooks and More Specializing in Custom by memoriesforlifesb If you need anything else, please let me know.

  4. This has been the greatest website. I got so many wonderful ideas from you lovely ladies and I don't know what I would've done without you all. So here is my review and hopefully it will help out all the future brides out there like the past brides have helped me. Air Jamaica - B We left out of Ft Lauderdale and once we go on the plane the plane had the hot AC going. It made it a little uncomfortable. My poor fiance's palms were sweating. They came on the announcement and told us that the air would not get cooler until we were well in the air. Other than that, everthing else was go
  5. Just wanted you ladies to know that we are back. We had a blast and I don't know how I would've made it through the planning process without this website. The forum answered so many of my questions and I am so greatful. I will be doing a planning thread (a little late) and a review so look for that to come sometime this weekend. Again, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for your help and our wedding was beautiful Mrs. Maria Gergle
  6. We didn't book anything for after the dinner at Mammee Bay. We got married at 6:30pm and because we had our photographer we cut the cake, did the toasts, and did our first dance right there in the Mammee Bay restaurant while we waited on the food t come. it worked out perfect because we were able to get pics of all the high lights before the photographer had to leave. Then when we were finishing dinner the beach party was starting. It was awesome. They had great music and if my guests wanted to come the could and if they didn't that was fine too. I danced the night away with my husband and had
  7. We had our wedding 10/17 which was on a Saturday and it worked out perfect because they had the beach party that night. I had emailed Chandlyn earlier and asked her if it would fall on our date and she said that it is every Friday unless it rains. After going to the disco, I wouldn't reccommend that. It does have a smell and it is very dark. We had a blast dancing the night away on the beach so either the Sea Grape or the Poolside reception would be the best. I hope this helps.
  8. When we were there, my husband who has a lot of expensive camera equipment just left it in the locked room. If she is unsure of it, I would suggest like the other ladies said and have her put it in a suitcase and use the lock, but the safe isn't big and no one bothered with out stuff. We did stay on the 5th floor though. He did used his camera bag that looks like a back pack and carried that a lot of places. Tell her not to worry, her stuff will be fine.
  9. We went back and forth if we should go with the onsite photographer at the Riu, Michael, or if we should hire Brian, and we are so happy that we hired him. He took amazing pictures. Let me know what you think... Go to Jamaica Wedding Photographer - Brian Nejedly then click on private gallery. The password for the wedding is gergle and the TTD pics password is gerglettd I hope you like them. The TTD was the best experience ever. I would highly suggest it!!!
  10. This was one of the best things in my OOT bags. All of my guests loved them. I'm so glad that i decided to do them. Thanks for sharing!!!
  11. Thanks for the info. That was exactly what I was looking for. I;m headed there tomorrow :0)
  12. Update: So my fiance got laid off a week and a half ago. I was so overwhelmed at first. My initial reaction was to go to the courthouse the next day to get a marriage license. Then I thought about it and if my family isn't going to be able to make it to Jamaica and we are getting married at the courthouse, why not take a long weekend and go to where my family is and get married in front of them. So that is what we are going to do. They say everything happens for a reason and I do believe it does. My mom and I are very close and she was so upset that she wasn't going to be able to s
  13. Thank you so much for your review. That is very helpful especially because I am getting married there in 69 days. You look gorgeous!!! Congratulations. I love the flowers that you put on the table. What kind of flowers were those? Were they artificial or real? Thanks for your help.
  14. I have spent hours researching this.... I am looking for a ziplock type of holder that can hold something a little bigger than just a credit card. The outside demensions would need to measure at least 4" high x 3" wide. I bought 50 of the basic size and they don't fit well at all. Let me know if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks. Maria
