  1. Iam wondering if someone can help me with the marriage requirements. I was told w need a certified copy of the birth certificates and passports. I was also told the copies must be notarized. Is this just a photocopy of each and then notarized. Because when I called googled certified copy passport, I contacted the department and was informed it would not be notarized only sealed by the state an it cost more than a passport. Has anyone gotten married and can tell me what and how they supplied the documents. Thanks a million.
  2. Hey Girls: I am getting very excited its only 3 months away before our big day. I can't wait to go to the island. I love this site and love hearing everyone's ideas. Congrats to those that just got married and had a fab wedding. That's so cool.
  3. Jen How long did you book the dj for and the steel drum player. I am curious because I was having a dj for five hours and am figuring out how many hours I would really need him to play at the reception and how many hours I could book the musician for
  4. I have stayed at ocean club west and loved it. Ia getting married there in 5 months. Back in April of last year we went on site visit there. Its beautiful. During my site visit i stayed in a junior suite which is perfect for two people. This time i will stay in an oceanfront 2 bedroom. I must say all of the views from the balcony are outstanding except for studio suites. They are the only room where the view is of the island. We have 25 people going for at least a week and all are staying at ocean club west with us. They have a wedding coordinator for the room and do offer discounted group rat
  5. Corey I have booked shenique. Her quote is 150 for hair and 150 for makeup for bride. Bridesmaids hair and makeup is 250 or just 150 for hair or makeup. She will come to your room the day of. I am using her and their are 8 of us. It may be pricey but it is so worth it. She's great
  6. Hey Lauren. I have been told by my coordinator it is cheaper to buy table runners or linens here and to bring them with you bc they can get expensive to rent there. I know I bought my linens table runners and linen napkins and my coordinator is going to buy them off me after the wedding. It's so cheap here. Look on line at wholesale linen stores you can get it way cheaper and just pack them with you
  7. Hey Tonkin In regards to shuttles the guests don't have to pay bc we are all staying bat cow and the rehearsal dinner is at oc so shuttles are complimentary. On the day of the wedding the reception will be on the beach. The etiquette is controversial on that bc I've read some places that the bride and groom should pay for transportation if its for the reception. If its for a rehearsal dinner you can invite them and let guest know that transportation will not be provided but that they are welcomed to attend. I know when I was on the island cabs run about 15.00-30.00 per person one way so that c
  8. Kim. They will send you pics also of the bouquets your looking at buying id they have them. For me they did. I hear they do great work so sont worry
  9. W. Corey: I love John. Wait until you meet him hes such a nice and funny guy. You both will enjoy working with him. I have actually went with Shenique for my hair and placed the deposit. She prices around 150 for hair and 150 for makeup for the bride but seeing pictures i believe its worth it. The bridesmaids are a littlecheaper but not much. We are using EA flowers which is who my coordinator picked. The bouganville is cheap and again it dependa on what flowers you want imported aome are much more expensive than others. I really think it depends on where their being imported from. Like i said
  10. Hi W Corey: congrats on your upcoming wedding. I love meeting new brides. As far as the aleaxandria goes i never stayed there but friend owns one of the condos and from what i have heard its beautiful. I also know its so close to the coral reef where you can actually go snorkiling right off the beach and have lunch at this cute bar restaurant called somewhere. We are actually planning to snorkel there instead of renting a boat. I am not sure if you can walk to the supermarket from there thats something i dont know. But i personally think it is in a beautiful location. I see alot of girls get f
  11. Shae: I will say in regards to transportation cabs are expensive on the island. I took at cab to and from the airport and each time was 30.00 per person. So it does cost about 60.00 per person round trip. This time for the wedding I am renting a car. If a large group goes it may also be worth checking out a limo service or car rental service on the island which does airport transfer or if you stay at an all inclusive like Beaches-airport transfer is included. For me, I really did not think the island was so expensive but it all depends whats in your budgt and where you are from.
  12. Congrats Kim: I am so happy for you. I told you, you would know it was the one. You look beautiful in your dress. It's exciting isn't it. Where did you finally find the one?
  13. I thought this post was a great post. I think all of us go through this. I am going through this now. It's funny when its 1 year or more before the wedding everyone is going. As its not only 8 months away, I still have a large number of definites but there are quite who few who I feel like aren't able to go and just won't say it. the part I can't get the most is, if you can't afford it or don't want to attend I completely understand. BUT JUST SAY IT PEOPLE. The reaslity is as one drops another comes and to be honest I could care less if you come or you don't. Either way my day is going to go a
  14. Oh and P.S. the Sottero site after you look at a dress you specifically like has a link on the right that says "Find A Store" click that link and put in PA and NJ and you should find PA retailers and South Jersey retailers since only certain stores are permitted to carry the line.
  15. Also, DO NOT SHOW HIM THE DRESS YOU PICK lol. It's a killer. I have been dying to just show him. But you know what it will be worth it when he sees you and sees how beautiful and stunning you look because if you don't show him hes excited himself to see you. If he sees it, well you'll still look great and he'll love it but he has an idea of what to accept.
