About Islandbride2b

  1. I just emailed you as well, I can't wait to see the rest of this great news letter!! Islandbride2b megkisslinger@gmail.com Thanks in advance!
  2. hi ladies, I have been debating about this as well. So far I have decided that since i have guests arriving on different days, the ones that will arrive when we arrive will receives theirs early, maybe at a welcome lunch (since we are having personalized bubba kegs I want them to get the most use out of them!) and then the others who arrive later will receive theirs directly from us or in their rooms.. probably their rooms. I'm just worried about leaving them in their rooms because our resort does upgrades right at check in.. and I don't want to find out that someone got an upgrade and never received their bag because of it. (Maybe I'm just thinking too much!) lol

    BDW Facebook Page?

    I just requested to Join as well and their wasn't a place to put my screen name as well. Please accept my friend request!! Thanks so much!
  5. We are doing, Purple for my hubby to be's birth stone color, Orange for my daughters birthstone color.. and well white.. which is my soon to be step sons birthstone (diamonds!) as well as mine. Funny thing is I would have picked these colors regardless. I love Orange and Purple! So bright!!
  6. actually if you want to put something on the bubba keg, a name or date or something of that sort. A rub on from a walmart or a craft store works great. It will eventually come off.. but it is taking a lot of wear for it too. It with stood the sand and sun, as well as the dish washer and people picking at the letters. (I did it for a float trip a while ago, as well as used it on the beach in Jamaica) It can be a tedious DIY but it is great fun to make things personalized for your guests. Good luck!!
  7. Mel as far as your photographers I was told that we can bring our own photographers in to the resort. We are not allowed to hire out side Jamaican photographers. We are bringing ours with us instead of using the resorts. I have seen some of their photos. Some are great some are not so great. (We went to GPJ in June) To us, our photos are one of the most important things, because its really the only thing we get to bring back with us that is tangible as far as our wedding day/week. Plus I just really LOVE pictures! Don't feel like your unorganized! I was under the impression that everything would be taken care of when we got to the resort as far as picking out things. Everything will be easy breezy! I do have to say though, that since the WC have changed so much, i find myself doing a lot of "pre picking" and asking a lot of questions to Lori. The wedding packages have changed dramatically since over 6 months ago when I saved our wedding date with a deposit. alright ladies, It's late, I have got to get to bed. I hope some of these posts of mine make since to someone! lol. Happy planning!
  8. Hi ladies, I had emailed Lori about the flowers as well. This is what she had said, and she sent me an attachment of all the flowers. (I hope the attachment posts!) "Please see attached floral magazine for your perusal. The bouquets that comes with the wedding packages are as follows: 128, 130, 149-164. Lori Douglas Wedding Coordinator Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort and Spa Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort and Spa The Point, Lucea P.O. Hanover, Jamaica W.I. Telephone: 876 619 0000 extn 8251 Fax: 1876-620-0001 Email: weddingasst.jamaica@fiestahotelgroup.com" Okay I keep trying to add it as an attachment, but I think it is just too big. I'm not sure what to do, any suggestions are welcome. In till then, Lori has been extremely helpful and patient with me. I'm sure if you e.mail her she will definitely send you the attachment of flower options. I'm sure you can have something else done s far as flowers..these are just the few that come with selective packages.

    Shower for second Marriage

    hi ladies, this is the second time around for my FI and I both. I'm torn with my feelings on this as well. It's so different this time, and to tell you the truth it feels like it is our one and only.. (wonderful feeling love is. :smile159) I have friends who want to "toss" me a shower and I wasn't okay with it.. at first.. then a good friend of mine and I started chatting about the boudoir that I intend to to for my FI.. and she suggested since I'm not comfortable with a shower, that we have a "pretty Panty" party in order to prepare me for my shoot as well as to get together with some great girlfriends and few family members who were invited to the wedding but can not attend to celebrate, laugh and have a great time. Just another idea! With all that said, we have registered do to a lot of people asking us to, if something gets sent in the mail we will be grateful but not expected of anyone. We are as well having a casual AHR when we return and I'm sure we will have a few guests who will bring gifts.. but again not expected of anyone! We just are thrilled and want to celebrate with everyone we love!! Sorry for the story board!!! Happy Planning ladies!

    OOT bag filler for guys

    we are using, bubba kegs personalized with "their" funny names and the wedding year, waterproof deck of cards, cigar cuters and matches... hm there is something else but I can't remember at the moment. Cards are always a big hit, we played a lot of cards last year when checking out the wedding site, as well as made some life long friends. Good luck ladies, you really can't go wrong. You and your guests will be enjoying paradise, I really don't think anyone will be complaining or not enjoying themselves!
  12. Sam33 Congrats on getting ready to order your dress.. as for size there are a lot of ladies on here who have ordered from Landy with their custom measurements, I on the other hand have ordered from the a regular size. IF you do a regular size, just remember that sizes over seas are a bit smaller/tighter then sizes in the u.s. I was told that if you are a street size 10 you should order a 12. I do not know if this is true from experience but I will come the end of this month! NO worries though, so much easier to take a dress in then it is to let it out! I didn't do custom sizes because i have been losing weight pretty steady and didn't want the shape of the custom to look funny if I lost in areas harder to take in.. so I ordered a standard size to have altered closer to the end of April here in the states. best of luck to you and congrats on finding the dress you want for an awesome price!
  13. Hello GPJ Brides and Brides to be! I'm interested in knowing when your wedding dates are, if you have picked a location (beach or gazebo..) and for what time is your wedding?! I'll go first! May 5, 2010 on the beach at 2:00 pm (I really wanted 4:00, but it was taken) happy planning everyone!
  14. aww amazing. We have similar stories, and similar engagement stories. I love that we have men that understand that our Children are as much involved as we are. Congrats!!
  15. hello everyone. I have ordered a lace gown from them and I should be getting it at the end of this month.. so as soon as I receive it I will surely tell you and show you how it turns out! As far as the chiffon dress by Maggie, I'm sure it would be pretty easy for them to duplicate. Good luck to all of you! I hope I love the dress when it gets here because I am out of time to order from a bridal store around me!
