    After Wedding Sale!

    The Guestbook pages are from the Guestbook Store, I bought a whole book and my guests filled them out at the welcome dinner, it's such a nice keepsake.

  5. We did Couples Swept Away on the beach, it was beautiful. We also had pics in the gardens, gazebo, and different beach locations within the resort. My pics are posted in the Reviews under NJ_Brides Pro Pics. Loved CSA! Just an FYI they changed their outside vendor fee to $500 but talk to your photographer, some will split this with you. Good luck!
  6. We did 2 hours after the ceremony while we took pics. This was perfect b/c we still got to enjoy about an hour of it with our guests. Also we did our 1st dance, and cake cutting during that time. 2 hours went really quick.

    how to ask for help

    Ugh! I had the exact problem. Confronting didn't work, being really nice honest didn't work, asking for help didn't work, nothing worked. I did everything myself. Luckily I had a wonderful bridesmaid who felt horrible and stepped up and did the job of the MOH. Organzed my shower, bachlorette, went shopping for their dresses with me, went to my hair and makeup trials with me, and so on. It honestly feels as if my MOH wasn't even in my wedding, what a waste! If you don't have anyone else to step up, just do it yourself. Just don't do or have something b/c your MOH drops the ball. You are the bride and deserve more!

    FI's attitude is sucky

    I had some similar problems and I read an article that said to write out your whole to do list and then go through and pick a few things to ask your FH's opinion or help with. For me, I put him in charge of picking the song for him to dance with his godmother and me dance with my father to, pick his and best man's suits, design, order, and pick up tshirts to give our guests. Guess what, it worked! Most guys don't care about flowers, cakes, invites, ect. By giving him just a few responsibilities that he cared about he did a great job. When the day came to meet with the resort WC he even gave input on food and suggested having a DJ. I would have loved for him to be more involved but every time I asked his opinion or brought up wedding stuff he said he didn't care. Traditionally those details are more important to the bride so i accepted this and just handled that stuff myself. Believe me he will be so shocked and happy with all the details and hard work when your day comes. My husband couldn't believe how I had put everything together.

    sandy flies

    Hi! I got eaten alive in Jamaica too. Don't think it is seasonal though I knew about these suckers ahead of time and brought Off Skintastic, worked good when I remembered to put it on. I kept forgetting b/c you don't feel them biting you! Also my friend bought some spray repellent oil stuff in the gift shop and it worked great. It had tea tree oil in it. Bugs love me no matter where I am. My hubby didn't get 1 bite!

    Need to vent about SIL!

    My husband and I had a similar situation with his brother and his brother's fiancee. Needless to say they did not come although it wasn't over money. I thought the same thing are people gonna be upset he isn't here and blame us? Well while hubby's sister and Dad were upset and tried to make excuses, no one else missed them! Actually people were disgusted with the fact they chose not to come. Trust me you will be much better without them. Good luck!
  11. "The people you love the most, will be among those who hurt your feelings the most as you plan the "Big Day". It's those you least expect that will surprise you with their thoughtfulness and helpfulness." I have never read a more true thought! Almost 3 months after my wedding I still think about that part everyday. Some relationships were changed forever over our wedding. Also agree with the less is more.
  12. Our cocktail party was from 5-7. With open bar and hot and cold apps. For hot there were Spring Rolls, shrimp kebobs and chicken kebobs. As for cold there was everything, cheeses, artichoke hearts topped with bruscetta, nachos, fruits, raw veggies, deviled eggs, olives, nuts, the list goes on. With 50 people the food was almost gone by the end and we had wedding cake too. Here is the thing if it's apps people will pick more over time than they might eat at a sit down dinner. I know I'm guilty of this. Note we also had a buffet style dinner after and people still ate! I say go with a few more foods if you are in doubt, better more than not enough. Best of luck!

    Sun Gold Photography

    Hi Everyone! Just wanted to give a review of Sun Gold Photography. We used them for our December 5th, 2008 wedding at CSA in Negril, Jamaica. We had the digital package which included up to 5 hours of shooting and all usable images on a copyright free disc. I got their name from another CSA bride and checked out their website. They live right in Negril. I loved the photo journalism style as DH and I are not really formal people. They were easy to get in touch with and seemed right on with pricing. Compared to wedding photographers in US it was a steal! I was able to place a deposit to book and then pay in 2 more installments. Paula and Damian arrived at my room about 45 minutes before the ceremony they got pics of me getting ready and some of the details. Damian then headed over to the guys room to get the same. The captured all of the preceremony, ceremony and sand ceremony. We then took group pics on the beach. After that they took Anthony and I off by ourselves to get pics in the garden, gazebo, and back to the beach for sunset. We also took our bridal party for those pics. Afterward they captured our cocktail party with our guests, 1st dance, and cake cutting. We ended up with about 500 incredible pictures. They were very fun to work with and really put us at ease. I would recommend them to anyone. Please PM me with any questions. I will be posting my link to the pics very soon.
