    Yes, girl everyone helpped me too. I just kept planning, and if they cant picture it, or dont agree with it they can stay home.

    Thanks to everyone for the words of encouragement. I know that you all know that you just get those days where everything just seems like there is sooooooooo much to deal with. I am so happy that I found this place because now I know that I am not in it alone. We're family.....lol Hugs for everyone.

    They Just Don't Get It

    I don't know if it is me, but I am trying to explain the concept of a destination wedding to my family. Something simple yet elegant. That is what I am going for. However, it is turning into so much more. I now have 5 bridesmaids, and they want me to add junior bridesmaids, flower girl, and a ring bearer. HEEEELLLLOOOOOO!!!!!! That defeats the purpose of the simple yet elegant....lol It is my day and I am trying to get the family including the FI to understand, but I am not being heard right now. ARRRGGHHHH!!!! I apologize if this was commented on before, or if there is another thread, But I just had to speak my mind for a minute.

    Jamaican Wedding Cake

    Hey, Im not Jamaican, but I am from Barbados. The traditional cake is a "fruit" cake ir rum cake." It is all types of fruit ground up like cherries, rasins, prunes, tuti fruti (which is kind of spicy) and sometimes nuts. It has spices in it like cinnamon and nutmeg, and it is all soaked in Rum. It is a very heavy cake, but alot of people like it. It is not like American fruit cake it is dark and sometimes referred to as "Black" cake. It is an acquired taste. The resort wont substitute the fruit cake for a "regular" or yellow cake? Hope this helps.
