  3. more... Photographer: Tim Aylen - A++ Tim was amazing! I found him when i was googling photographers in Bahamas after deciding i didnt like the portfolio of the one that the resort uses. His prices are amazing, he replies to emails promtly. like the same day or the next. his portfolio is amazing etc! He arrived on time and just started taking photos right away. I loved them all. We didnt edit anything that is how good he is. Really really think everyone getting married in the Bahamas needs to hire him. His website is www.timaylenweddings.com The wedding day: A++++++ It wa
  4. more.... Oh! james and i were on the poolside which also faced Atlantis, and some of our other guests were facing the ocean which was really beautiful. I have to say i liked the poolside better though so that you could see where your family and friends were from your balcony if they werent out off the resort. the next morning the meeting they had was really informative and really important. so anyone planning on going here needs to go to it. The food and service in all the restaurants that we tried was amazing. All our breakfasts were in the Buffet. That was my favorite time
  5. more: The resort - The Riu Paradise Island Palace - A+ We arrived at the resort and there were staff waiting for us with punch as refreshments. The choice of either virgin or Acoholic. Both were yummy. We were checked in with in 30 mins. I thought that we would have had upgraded rooms, but we were just given standard rooms. To make up for it though they put everyone on the same floor. The 15th floor. it was great! everyone should do that. makes it so easy to plan things together and it was a full time party. Whenever we were up there everyones door was left open unless they were of
  6. more.... The Airline - Thomas Cook - B Everyone that was on our flight arrived at the airport about 2-3hours before we were leaving. Because we were upgraded we were able to skip the really long line for regular packages, and were through the line of the Gold and Silver packages super fast. We were checked in and had no problems with my taking a carry on and my dress as well. No one else had any problems bringing extra things as carry ons with them either. Customs went really well. I forgot though that there was metal on my jeans and had to go through the metal detector a few times and
  7. more... other than usind vistaprint there are a few other things that i made from either finding the templates on here.

  8. more... Once we had our travel agent and she helped us pick the resort I went to Vista Print and had STD postcards made. They were awesome! on the back had our wedding website address and on that website it had all the information so that everyone could get in contact with Erika. We made a free website from www.weddingwire.com a wonderful site that I used for so many things. The check list is the best! I jumped into wedding planning right away. I wanted to get as much as i could done right away. Once the STD was done I was refered to the same co-worker to this website an
  9. Sorry about this being like almost a year overdue. But here it is oh and this is going to be in parts as i spent 4hrs doing it this morning was almost finished and then i accidently erased it. Engagement: My husband James and I got engaged in October 2009. He picked me up after work. A day where i was feeling so sick, so i didnt think anything of it when he showed up all dressed up looking. When we pulled into our driveway he brought up how he was so annoyed with the fact that I wrote him a note saying how mad I was at him for telling me that I could start planning a destination weddi
  10. It was wonderful! Such a nice place. We had our wedding and did a semi-private dinner and then had the back terrace to ourselves after dinner. it was so great!
  11. Hey! I am a Bahamas bride! RIU Paradise Island is where we tied the knot, and it was wonderful! Highly recommend it to everyone. We got married this November 27/10.
  12. Hi Boneola! We just came back! Yes our trip was from Nov 21-28th and our wedding day was Nov 27th. It was fantastic! We had a semi-private reception (dinner) in the Sir Alexander Restaurant. It was at 6:30pm and so good! i dont know why they cant fit you in before 9pm, that is strange... Yes Debbie is really busy. But once you get there she will treat you like a princess. She really knows her stuff and your day should be just as great as ours! let me know if you have any other questions. maybe pm me just in case... I dont come on here that often now that we are back...
  13. Hi, I just got married at the RIU and it was fabulous! Everything went off with out a hitch. The ceremony was great, the semi-private dinner was fantastic and we got to have our own little private party on the back terrace for free. It was fantastic! I do not have anything bad to say about the place. So nice!
  14. Hey everyone! We just got back a few weeks ago from our wedding at the RIU on Paradise Island. It is so beautiful there and so great! I highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going there and getting married there.
