  1. wow wow wow wow WOW!! This planning thread is ridic. Totes amazeballs. You blew it outta the water girlie - IRHB will not know what hit them!!! hahahaha Amazing job!
  2. I think I was charged a vendors fee... but I had an outside DJ too and for some reason I think I only paid a day pass for the DJ and a vendors fee for the florist (not 2 vendors fees). Sorry I cant really remember! :(
  3. Hi! I got the bottle openers at 4imprint.ca (Im in Canada) but I also got them through work with our corporate discount as we buy a lot of promo items from them, so that helped A LOT with my OOT bags
  4. Rosemarie you looked gorgeous. Congratulations!! They didnt. You have to take a cab to the rose hall shopping centre (5 mins away) and cash them at the bank. Thats what we did. Just bring enough cash to last for a few days so you dont have to rush there. I only brought Travelers Cheques for the big payments to my florist, DJ etc.
  5. There is a nice area beside the Grand on the beach that has those rock piers out into the ocean that would work well for a TTD. The best place I could find that was local was where I went - the green grotto caves - its was about 45mins away. A nice jungle setting with cool cliff-face and caves... unfortunetly it rained all over us so we didnt get as much time there as I would have liked, there were a lot of cool places to shoot! See my slideshow (TTD shots are at the end) http://vimeo.com/breesvids/stephenandsabrinaweddingslideshow password - oneloveoneheart I used silk flowers on my huppa. All my other flowers were real but I figured they are up high - who cares if they are fake. Here are my huppa photos: I think fushia would look great with that colour
  6. Hi Nola! I was very lucky. I flew with west jet, which at the time allowed each person 2 pieces of checked luggage plus a carryon. But most of my decor was either paper or fabric, so it wasnt really that bad. Be creative and tell your bridesmaids to pack light so you can give them stuff! Lol Happy planning!
  7. Who is your florist? You should be able to get vases from them. If not, I know you can rent them from pussbackfoot: http://pussbackfoot.com/htmlver/galleries.php?sec=2&galnum=1
  8. There's tons you could put - welcome dinner/rehersal dinner info, menu choices, travel information, resort information. My invite had 4 inserts; ceremony, reception, travel and resort.
  9. I think its a great idea to have your dinner a bit earlier - like 5ish and do the mango walk (or other location) until 10:30. Its not too big, but not very classy decor. Its a typical club - but you'll have an awesome stereo and lighting system. I dont know what your parents/older relatives are like, but mine all stuck around and stuck together on the dance floor after the club opened to the public. It actually felt more fun because there was a larger crowd and everyone was congratulating us. With only 25 people and some who dont dance, the floor was a bit empty until the public came. I also know that the noise by-law in Jamaica doesnt allow music on the beach after 10:30pm. While the by-law may not allow late music outside - I dont know why if you rent your own dj and system, that you couldnt rent out an inside restaurant until later than 10:30pm. Might be worth discussing with management...
  10. Me and all my girls had our make up done. my comments are in my review. You look beautiful Shari!!
  11. CONGRATS MRS SMITH!!! You looked sooo gorgeous!! That totally sucks that you couldnt have a private reception. Sounds like everything worked out ok though. So stupid and annoying that rule. And you had 2 extra guests (from Jamaica) show up? I know another bride who got married at the beach resort and had OVER 20 people show up (from jamaica) She was FREAKING OUT. She already had over 100 ppl so it was crazy. Seems to be a cultural thing. LOL Yes, May is definetly busier than December (my wedding month) - but its still a day-to-day thing. Like my resort was completely booked for the dates of my wedding trip - some friends who wanted to take the same plane as us couldnt cause they were totally booked - up to the day of my wedding. Then it slowed down a bit on my wedding day (it was a friday)
  12. Hey Betee, On the terrace there are really neat awning type things and patio furniture. You could totally hang lanterns on those... lemme see if I can dig up a pic. Yep, that is totally what I recommend. Although, that still may not mean you get the private reception. MY big plans were: a) Invite random strangers (aka new friends!) to the wedding reception to make up the difference to get 40 ppl. The way I saw it is - if I had the wedding at home, all the 'plus ones' wouldve been strangers anyways. A few people that werent close friends wouldnt have mattered! OR If she said 'hell no'. I would have a Cocktail reception on the terrace (photo above) with hors doevres and drinks. That way it would be private to do our first dance and music and stuff after the dinner in the restaurant with all the other diners. You just have to be flexible and ready for another option. I got lucky and she let me have mine private due to low occupancy that day.
  13. Sorry for the delay - here are a few pics!
  14. Daisy - I brought all the decor except the flowers/vases. My florist boulevard florist based out of negril did the flowers.She was very affordable and I reccommend her. Liz - My reception was at Uncle Tony's.
