About BeachBrideBeth08

  1. I was wondering if some RIU ocho rios brides could help answer a question for me. I have been emailing Chandlyn and of course, I'm not getting a response. Not surprising - haha! Question: Can the groomsmen and my fiance wear their sandals to the reception dinner at Mammee Bay? I've read that they need to wear closed toe shoes, but they are wearing sandals for the wedding. Just wondering if they have to change shoes. Chandlyn hasn't responded to my question regarding a rehearsal dinner either. Is this something she arranges once we arrive or can it be scheduled ahead of time? Where are they held? Thanks for your help ladies!!

    Any fellow ROR brides tying the knot April 3rd???

    Yes, let's definitely meet up. I feel like we have so many conversations going on with all the overlapping threads. haha! I fly in on the 1st and we should be at RIU by mid afternoon. Maybe we should meet up on the 1st in the evening or maybe the 2nd in the afternoon? That's so junky to hear about your friends and family! I can relate on some level too since we got grief from people and they are not coming. I feel like, if you really can't afford it or even just plain old don't want to, then speak your truth - don't hide behind excuses. Just be honest, right? Ah, if only it were that easy. Who cares, party on.

    Jamaica wedding blues

    Good for you for not doing the bridal party! That's the one thing I would take back if I could. I'm sure it will be fine in the end and all, but it was a headache like you said. And yeah, all the people I invited who complained had never been there but just heard bad things.

    LF TTD size 8 or 10

    I have a size 8 J Crew embossed halter beach dress like this one (except white of course): Google Image Result for http://www.tikimama.com/images/dress.jpg sorry for the unusual link: I just did a google search for the dress and it came up with good pictures. Never wore it - I intended it to be my wedding dress, but I changed my mind and decided I wanted something more formal. I paid 30 for it, I got it on sale and so I can't return it to J Crew. Thanks! Beth

    Hey Moy! Yeah, I need to send my documents as well. I am OOT bag shopping on Saturday. And maybe dress shopping. lol I was hoping to have my welcome dinner on Thursday, since most of my guests are getting in that day. Plus I heard it's "Mexican night" somewhere? I don't know what restaurant though.

    Jamaica wedding blues

    So true, that this experience happens to so many of us. I too gave everyone a year notice, which I thought was fine (I couldn't wait 2 years lol). I also got the same comments from people - "If only it were St. Lucia...". I really couldn't think of a ruder thing to hear from my FBIL, but then, other people complained that I had picked Jamaica and they weren't interested. Nice manners! So, out of 150 invited (and really, I totally didn't expect that many, of course) we have 14 booked. My MOH has daily fights with her tool of a boyfriend so that has delayed her booking. On the bright side, two couples are coming that I never thought would (and we are super pleased about that) and with just 6 weeks to go, my travel agent says that new people are 'inquiring' every week. So, until I am there, I will just wait to see what happens. I'm so anti-big-wedding, I still couldn't imagine a better way to do the whole thing.

    Thanks Maureen! I've been debating this too.

    I will be there from the 1st through the 6th, too! We should definitely have cocktails. My wedding is at 2:00 on the 4th. But, unlike you and Sarah, I have so much left to do - including a dress. That's right, NO dress. I should probably be freaking out, but I'm pretty laid back, so I know I'll get one before my 6 am flight on the 1st.
