  1. The people that really want to be there will be there. And it's really about the 2 of you being together and getting married! We got engaged December 5th and married in Jamaica April 20th with 32 people so I think no matter how much time you give people there will always be things in life that will prevent them from being able to some. Do what you really want and enjoy!!
  2. I totally disagree with the Grand Palladium Jamaica review, stay away from Tripadvisor! Check out the Palladium Addict website, it's much more reliable. People also have to remember that they're in Jamaica, it's not supposed to be exactly like home or we wouldn't need to leave! I would really recommend staying in Negril too on the 7 mile beach stretch, it's amazing! I do not have one complaint about GPJ.

Sorry you guys missed out on the dancing Michelle Erin They have live music every night in the Infinity bar. Our dinner was from 7 - 10 and we likely headed upstairs between 9:30 - 10. I would not spend extra money on a DJ or band, it's very expensive. It's totally your preference and if you think your group would stick around there all night. We had 31 people and everyone was ready to head up with the crowd and party with the band and other guests. We just loaded up an Ipod and waited to see what happened!

Our photographer has put some of our pictures on her website: http://www.sweettreephotography.com/index2.php Click on "this kind of love" at the bottom and then "over the rainbow". We are so thankful that we had such a talented friend join us.

I was considering using the blue lagoon though, so not sure how much they vary. Did you guys play your ipod during cocktail hour? Did you have any troubles getting your photographers on the resort? I'm so anxious to hear your review and see your prof pix Congrats again! Erin We had the Blue Lagoon reserved and played our Ipod music during dinner and then had a first dance. They even set up a table for it and gave us an extension cord. We didn't even use the actual dancing area because by the time dinner was done we all went up to the Infinity Bar for the band. They sang us another song which we danced to and then also did our father/mother dances so it worked out perfectly. We didn't do the cocktail hour because if you get married on a Tuesday they have the manager's reception which had all the beautiful appetizers, that took care of our guests while we did our photos. Just a stroke of luck for us really. We had a couple photographer friends with us so we didn't have to deal with that stuff. It will be beautiful and perfect no matter what!
  6. Welcome back to all the new Mrs! Michelle - It's just so funny seeing all your pictures since they are similar to ours, hope you enjoyed the Palladium as much as we did. Wish I was still there. ;( What a heavenly place to get married!
  7. Down to my final "to do" list for tomorrow since we leave Friday! One little project left and I'll be ready to head out the door with everything. Thankfully some family has offered to take a few things for us since we're flying Air Transat and the baggage allowance is very minimal, that reduced my stress to just a tiny fraction. The only thing that freaks me out is walking down the aisle - all those eyes on you! Hoping I can hold it together. Glad to hear that other hiccups everyone was having seem to be working out in their favor, looking forward to seeing all the pictures after (still have to research posting pics myself). Hope you're all enjoying your last minute preparations. I'm looking forward to my mani/pedi tomorrow but not so much the waxing! LOL

  9. I saw one bride that took a picture of all her clothes/items she packed just in case your suitcase gets lost, easy to remember what you have to claim if (God forbid) this ever happened to you. I thought it was a good tip for anytime you travel. I think my favorite things that I always bring is my blow up float. I have one of those round ones that folds down into a disc and you just blow up the outer edge - genius! Throw it on top of your clothes when you're packed, weighs barely anything.

I get there on the 16th, we'll likely be the rowdy bunch at the beach party that night since we'll be the newbies off the plane. Hopefully you'll still have some energy left by then and I may see you!

Here's the template: Thanks so much for ANOTHER template - you rock!!
  13. OMG April is finally here - congratulations to all the April brides! I'm trying not to let my anxiety climb as I read all the stuff that people have done but guess I had a late start and I still have a couple weeks to pull everything together. I think I pretty much have all my loot at home. Spending some time at home would certainly help as well. Hope everyone is still getting some sleep at night.....dreamt that I forgot my wedding band last night but that might have to do with the fact that I haven't received mine yet?? Suzyq76 - the mugs I bought off of you turned out perfectly, good enough for a weeks use anyways! Will hopefully post pics of everything later if I figure out how. Have a wonderful and productive Easter weekend ladies!
  14. Wow, I need one last sale like that too! Mine wasn't nearly as good today. Everything I've ordered has been awesome though. Maybe the sales are different in the States too, we always get ripped off up here. Have fun ordering!

I figure I can always return stuff or sell it if need be but right now I'm at 32 anyways. Question: Are we supposed to do OOT bags for people NOT staying at the same resort? I have some people staying at another resort too (that are also coming from Winnipeg and not Calgary) so I've been wondering if I should give them OOT bags as well. We won't even see them until our wedding day and then should I be carrying them with down the aisle to give?? j/k. But seriously, let me know what you decide to do.
