  1. @ Burnison09 I believe another bride used Misha's videographer, I used Roxroy..he was very professional, had mics attached to my hubby during the ceremony, and a mic for the speeches...I haven't seen the finished product yet so I can't comment fully on that yet. @daizyduke..there is only 1 atm it is at the beaches and it was out of order the whole time we were there. I put cash in the separate envelopes for each vendor and carried it with me on the plane. When I got to the resort I put it in the safe in the room. @ starrysim...I went to my local bank of america and did the transfer into the account information they gave me..it was free to do the transfer. @ kimberli1211....I had my dress steamed when I was there...I can't remember the exact price, but it wasn't much. I did have a little scare where I was not in my room when they came to return the dress and they do not have keys to the rooms like the maid, so they took it back down to the laundry and left for the day..but I was able to talk to the desk manager who got it for me and brought it to my room...no problems.mon
  2. Hi Ladies, Soooo I got my slideshow from my TTD sessions with Misha Earle....She was beyond awesome. I hired her to come on my honeymoon and take me around Negril for 3 hrs. I didn't want to be rushed the day after my wedding...and I wanted it to be like a photo shoot. Enjoy http://mishaearle.myshowit.com/mikesha
  3. Hello Kate, and welcome... Let's see..got engaged in Nov 2010,wedding date Sept 25, 2011... Save the dates went out in feb 2011. I used http://www.destinationweddings.com as my travel agent. They provide free save the dates that have their information on. She was able to block rooms for me that I paid the initial deposits on. Then as guest reserved their rooms for $100 my balance dropped. Instead of getting a refund the amount was applied to the balance for my room. Invitations went out June 1 2011 (went out a little late due to moving), travel agent info was on that as well. So here is my vent and only real problem with my wedding. The inconsideration of my guests that didn't RSVP, or did and canceled, even some that reserved their rooms and canceled and didn't tell me. So when did I get my final head count. Honestly the day before my wedding. Not wanting to freak you out, but that is what happened. How do you budget of it..YOU DON"T and that really pissed me off. I cut out a lot of things I wanted to do, like OOT bags, favors, etc because I just didn't know how many people were coming. I had about 50 people say they were coming, so I budgeted for 50. 48 people RSVP by the RSVP date Sept 1, sent email for final head count- numbers dropped to 43 Sept 19, sent email for menu selection-found out numbers were down to 31.. Sept 24, day before my wedding found out that 4 people I thought had rooms, had canceled. So final number 27

    Suggestions on Make up artist in Jamaica?

    My makeup lasted all night....my hair lasted even longer....I had a million pins in my hair. Rashel was early...came to my room...answered all of my mother's nagging questions. Eyelashes were perfect. Then on my TTD session she even had to strap me back in my dress..which she did with no problem mon.... She covered up my tattoo on my back.. SHE IS GREAT
  5. HI Ladies, I had my TTD shoot with Misha Earle 2 days after my wedding while on my honeymoon in Negril. Another great decision because we were rested, not rushed and had more time to go to a few locations. She is awesome and so fun to work with. Here is a one of her pics she sent me.

    Makeup-Rashel Edwards-A++++++++++++ Contact: Rashel Edwards makeupartistry1@hotmail.com Cost: Airbrush makeup, eyelashes, tattoo cover up, and travel-$200 we tipped her as well (No I did not have to pay a vendor fee for her) The makeup was beautiful, light, perfect for the hot humid weather, lasted all night, and was very comfortable. Only had to touch up my lip-gloss from all the kissing.. She was on time, very professional, super nice. I even hired her to come back on Tuesday to do my makeup again for the TTD session. When I get my professional pictures back I will post those as well Hair-Fiona her assistant-A++++++++++++ Cost for updo-$60, I tipped her as well Picture of the back of my hair..I got the jewel pins from Michaels.

    Am I the next one to leave...I think so...I head out Thursday Sept 21 for my big day Saturday Sept 25....nothing is packed...feels like so much to do. To the two most recent brides congrats you both look amazing...anything you forgot to take....wish you would have remembered to do or ask for...any last min tips..
  13. So let's talk about the big pink elephant in the room.....HURRICANES....what channel is everyone watching to keep up to date.
  14. In regards to Tai Flora...I put my wedding date in the subject line and that seemed to help. She didn't mention about deposit until after she sent the invoice and I asked her about it. Thats when she mentioned the pay in full before the wedding and because my date is so close I have to do credit card or bank of america transfer. I can't mail in the payment.
