  1. Hello ladies - I need some of your valuable advice! Â We're getting married at the ROR on March 24th, 2011. We're hoping to use the hotel photographer for ease of convenience, and because it would be insanely expensive to bring a photographer from Canada. But I'm having a HORRIBLE time trying to find a price and package list for the hotel photography, and would like to get some opinions of people that have used them in the past. I know there is another thread with reference to this just below, but I though maybe a fresh thread would grab some fresh insight. Â I emailed Antoinette as well to see if she can get me some info. I know they expect you to wait until a month before the wedding to begin chatting with her, but a month before doesn't leave any time to book a different photographer if needed. Bah, everything is coming together except for the photography bit, and it has me worried!!! Fellow brides I need help!! Â Thanks in advance!!!
  2. hchiasson -- I'm glad that you asked that question because I've being trying to hunt down that info too!! If I find it I'll send it to you, and if you don't mind doing the same that would be great! Our wedding is at ROR on March 24th, 2011
  3. Good morning Nicola!! Don't feel guilty, you need to give yourself a break every once in a while or else you'll burn yourself out and lose your motivation! I skipped my workout this morning and also felt a bit guilty, but I also felt super rested which was nice for a change, and now feel more motivated to dig in tomorrow Good luck with your weigh-in!! My weekly one is on Sunday so I'll keep you updated!! Just remember to keep setting goals and keep the biggest long term one at the fore front - your beautiful wedding day!

My quads are a-burning today because I did squats/lunges for the first time in, like, a year on Monday, and I am hurtin! No pain, no gain though right?? I kind of want to try P90X, but I'm scared to death I'll barf and pass out. I'm waaaaay out of shape. We have the video..maybe I'll try to talk FI into doing it together. As long as he promises not to make fun of my spastic lack of coordination... haha I'm chuckling at my FI who's bouncing away in the other room right now to p90x I think he's a little more motivated today as we paid our deposit and our wedding is actually completely confirmed!! No more steps!! Now just for everyone to book I felt really hungry today, almost caved into some goodies when I came home from work. Hence why I immediately logged on to BDW to try and restrain myself!!! And I'm tired from getting up early to work out before work sorry for being a whine fest, once I get my vent out I'll be re-motivated and good to go!!! I like the fact that p90x sets everything up for you. It seems like if you following the program you will succeed because they definitely have all of the bases covered. I need that or else I'll just get frustrated and fall off the wagon... Tomorrow is day 4! Over halfway through my first week!
  5. My FI has started today which is great motivation now that we're both doing it! I'm on day 3 - still going strong but feeling a little overwhelmed when I remember how far I still have to go!
  6. Welcome and congrats! I'm also a new ROR bride; our wedding is March 24th, 2011. This site can be extremely overwhelming because there is just so MUCH info, but it's impossible to leave here without a great new idea good luck and happy planning!!
  7. Hey ladies, Anyone know of where I can find the costs of "extras" for our wedding at the Riu Ocho Rios?? I'm looking for the costs of an extra cake, extra champagne, bouquets, that sort of thing. Thanks in advance!!
  8. Hey ladies! Im on day two - definitely HATE core synergistics but I really enjoy the cardio which was today (maybe because it's the shortest?) I've amazingly been doing great with following the fat shredder diet, although I did sneak in a coffee with cream and sugar both yesterday and today..... oops.... that was definitely one thing I had said I'd give up but otherwise I'm doing good!! Arms and shoulders tomorrow! THAT I'm excited about, NOT excited for the yoga though.... I just have to remember why I'm doing this I guess!!
  9. Welcome Nicola!! Great job already losing 10 pounds!! I'm restarting the workout and diet regime that I originally tried to start in April.... And May.... And June... :0 But this time I do feel more prepared, probably because it's getting to the point of no choice!! I'm on my second day of p90x and have been doing well, although I did have one coffee with cream and sugar yesterday and today, which was something I had said I would give up... But otherwise I amazingly stuck to my diet which is usually something that's impossible for me!! My buns are so sore today I can hardly sit down, but I just keep picturing my bathing suit and remember why I'm torturing myself. Celina - I laughed at my computer screen! What a clever FI you have, you are a very lucky girl! Besides the near heart attack of course We just can't forget to keep supporting each other ladies, together we can all acheive our goals and look beautiful at our weddings!!! xoxo
  10. What a great idea for the baskets!! Just got our wedding date confirmation today, YAY! soontobemrsdow - the gran bahia was actually our second choice! I think our travel agent wanted us to pick the bahia, he seemed to love it, but our gut instinct was the Riu. They have a fantastic reputation for weddings at the agency we used
  11. Hey ladies, good job getting your FI involved! We also both started diet and workouts today, although I don't think he's going to be working out lol. We went to the grocery store yesterday and he was cringing at all of the healthy food but he's being a good sport which is amazing support for me! We actually got confirmation of our wedding booking today so that's my wake up call to get my buns in gear!
  12. Yay! I'm so happy to finally be a Jamaica bride!!! Just put in the request for the wedding date yesterday, I can't wait to have it booked! User Name: aella Name: Alison and Curt Location: Riu Ocho Rios Wedding: March 24th, 2011 in JA: March 20th - April 3
  13. Hey ladies! It's been ages since I've been on here, the glitches with the planning were really getting me down! But it's all looking great now! We've put in the request for March 24th, 2011 at the Riu Ocho Rios in Jamaica! We DID manage to get flights out of our first choice city which is FANTASTIC!!! SO it's back to the planning! How is everyone else's planning going
  14. Wow I am so happy to have found this thread! When we first started with the wedding planning back in April/May I was SO motivated to eat healthy and workout, and then we ran into some glitches with the planning so I hadn't even been on BDW again until yesterday. Finally got the request for the wedding date put in for March 2011, which made me realize HOLY S*** our wedding is in 8 months!!! I don't have a lot of weight that I'd like to lose, 10-15 pounds at most, but like many of you the thought of a dress store right now makes me cringe! My FI was supposed to be my workout/healthy lifestyle buddy as he wants to lose a little weight too but he is the most unmotivated person in the world and has no interest in getting started, which brings me down! So I'm soo happy to have found ALL of you to be my motivators!!!! My goals for this week - drink more water, workout at least 3-4 days, focus on healthy eating!
