    Just engaged brain still spinning!

    Congratulations and welcome to the forum! You can read reviews and see pictures on different thread in this forum! You will find a lot of information. My FI and I wanted an all inclusive and a small intimate resort. We have two kids so we are getting married at Beaches Negril in Jamaica. Sandles resorts are a great way to get married. Good luck and happy planning.
  3. When we were in the Dominican people were just walking around topless!! "Cringe" Altough pransing around topless isn't an option for most of us I think that the best solution is to wear lots of sunscreen and to bring along some self tanner just in case!! Nothing worse than looking at wedding pictures and all you can see is the brides tanlines!! Thank you for posting this thread... Great suggestions.

  6. I really love this forum, its' full of so much valuable information but i'm noticing that there isn't very many Beaches brides... I see a lot of ROR and i wonder why there are so many brides that have or will be married there!! Don't get me wrong its a great resort no doubt, but I just wish this site had as many Beaches threads as it does ROR... So i'm starting this thread in hopes to gather up some Beaches Groupies!!! Hope to chat with other Beaches brides soon!

    Beaches Brides Check In!

    I would suggest Beaches, but i'm biased because that's where were going! There isn't a whole of of threads about Beaches which is unfortunate. Happy planning!
  8. Great review! Loved the pics! I agree with you when we have to have a laid back attitude and just roll with it!! Welcome back Mrs!!

    How fast can a DW be planned?

    Quote: Originally Posted by townie princess So if any of you remembers my wedding drama from 6 months ago http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...dumped-us.html my dream DW had to be cancelled and our plans switched to having the wedding back home where our families live (but we don't currently reside there!) FI and I keep "mentioning" that we should have gone ahead with the DW and that it's too late to do it now that we've sunk our money into the new plans. BUT at lunch today all my co-workers kept talking about their upcoming warm holidays down south this winter and now I'm super envious and want to go too. So my question to you all is, if I booked a last minute deal to get out of here for a DW, how long would take to book everything for a civil ceremony at a resort? Has anyone here done this last minute with less than 2 months of planning? My BFF got married last April in the DR and she only started planning 2 months before! She didn't even have a dress or anything. She did it all in less than two months so yes it's doable for sure... Go for it!! Make sure to let us all know what you decide.
  10. That's one of the benefits of being on the pill... You can manipulate them a little to have or not have a period at a certain time! It can be dangerous and have some pretty negative effects on your body so it's not suggested to do on a regular basis. The best thing is to talk to your doc or OB...
  11. We just got engaged on December 25th and we've already chosen our resort. We have a large wedding party and the majority of them are coming! My TA has started booking for us and we have a deadline of February 13th for the deposits... What i'm wondering about tho is that we really only have officially invited the wedding party and our parents... for now... Because were only getting married in January 2010 we will still be sending out invitations to close friends and family. I think that we will probably have about 40 people with us!! Maybe less, maybe more... So long as my FI and I are there with the two kids, the rest is an added bonus... I want a small intimate venue... Nothing elaborate, just simple and sweet!
  12. We are getting married in January 2010.... We had orginally hoped for November 09 but that fell through! Were happy with the new date... Only 11 months to go... Happy planning everyone!
  13. My FI and I have a budget in mind and we will do everything possible not to go over it! As mentioned in another thread, the joys of a DW is that once you pay the deposit on our location you have a few months to pay it off. In our case we have 11 months to pay of the remaining balance. We also put down a larger balance in the beginning! We are travelling with two kids and that makes it a little more expensive, but well worth it. When it comes to all the added extras we are going to try really hard to avoid overspending. We are bringing our own photographer (his mother) and we will have CDs made with our favourite music and well as our first dance. We dont mind if we have to play it in a courtyard under the stars, or just wait till we get home.... So long as we come back married that's all that really matters. I think the most important thing to do is to figure out a budget that works for you guys and stick to it no matter what!! Good luck and happy planning.

    Flying with Wedding Dress

    My BFF got married in the DR in April 08 and she brought her dress on the plane with her! We flew with West Jet and they were great at accomodating her. Unfortunately they didn't have a closet for her to hang it in, but she stored it in an over head bin. Then she had the resort staff steam her dress the day before the wedding. I hope that everything works out for you. I know I wouldn't feel comfortable with sending it ahead.. Worse case scenario u pack it in a suit case and inquired at the resort about a steaming service. Hope this helps.
