  1. Rose Petals I used freeze dried rose petals that I purchased from www.NYPetals.com. I couldn't see spending a ton of money for fresh rose petals that would be thrown away and these were great quality and are actually REAL petals that turned out to be beautiful. They have a great selection of colors and the price was very reasonable. I purchased three bags. Photography We used a friend of mine for our photography. He was awesome and was able to offer a personalized touch which we loved. Here is one of our favorite shots:
  2. Thank you Cara! Thank you also Chelsea! I printed my own brochure using brochure paper I purchased from Staples. It was pretty easy to do and didn't use up as much ink as I thought it would. You're welcome to use the word document template that I included for yourself and change the wording to make it personalized for you. The wedding "Facebook" went over so well! I used a postcard template I downloaded on Avery.com's website. Here is the template I used. You can add more pages and format it the way you liked. I used the font from my wedding invitations. Let me know if you
  3. Here is a picture of the wedding brochure. I finally figured out how to do a screenshot picture on this site. The word doc link for this is above:
  4. Peter-Gaye and her assistant did the makeup for myself and my two bridesmaids. They were so easy to work with and correspondence with them was really easy. I used PayPal for payment and sent her pictures of ideas for my hair and makeup prior to the wedding. She was very responsive and so sweet. If you would like to use her, she can be reached at Pretty.Faces@ymail.com. Here are a few shots of her work:
  5. Hi 1stmarriage, Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! We used a local travel agent and we were able to get money back for each person that booked through her once the final deadline had been reached. Make sure you chose a travel agent that works well for you. I had great communication with mine and even when she was off, there was someone answering her emails/phone calls which was great for me and our guests. We had four guests staying at the Suites and 4 guests staying at another resort completely. We had a total of 46 people (including ourselves) and had our rehearsal d
  6. Hi Vanessa, No, I didn't do the trash the dress, just a few shots on the beach before sunset. Thank you so much! One of the best days of my life.
  7. Rehearsal Dinner We held our rehearsal dinner at the Surf and Turf restaurant at the resort and released lanterns with a note to send up a special prayer/wish to the bride and groom. Here is a pic of my husband and I releasing the lantern. Each of our guests got to release them as well. We used biodegradable lanterns I purchased on www.justartifacts.com.
  8. Best Destination Weddings has been such an awesome resource for my wedding planning this past year. I felt it only appropriate to make sure that I shared any and all information from my wedding with this wedding community. Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope this information helps! The Proposal Robert has always done an exceptional job of planning and celebrating Valentine's Day with me. I knew that this year would be no different. The only thing that seemed out of the ordinary at first was that he changed our reservations from February 14t
  9. This is my wedding dress I purchased from Kleinfelds. It's a Lazaro and it was absolutely beautiful with tons of beaded detail. Loved it! I need an excuse to wear it again!
  10. Hi Ladies, I'm just returning from the Grand and the wedding was amazing! Janielle and Syrecka are both absolutely wonderful. They have everything under control! We scanned and emailed our notarized documents to them about 1-2 months prior to the wedding and even sent a few last minute details via email to them while at the resort and despite some of my last minute additions, everything turned out perfectly. We got married in the dome and it provided excelled acoustics for the ceremony. Our officiant was wonderful and he kept the mood light while still making sure the importanc
  11. Allie, I was able to scan and email mine to my wedding coordinator. I received confirmation last week that the documents were approved. Have you been in touch with the WC at the Suites to see if she can do the same thing? It makes it much easier. Dani
  12. Brook, You do have to fill out paperwork to request a date. I'm not sure which resort you're planning using for your wedding, but I've provided the link below for the Suites. The email address is also on the website for Iberostar. I do know that the only pricing available right now is for 2013. They generally do not release pricing for the following year until sometime between October and December. You might want to check with the WC once you've made contact. Hope this helps! http://www.iberostar.com/en/hotels/montego-bay/iberostar-rose-hall-suites/extras weddings.suit
  13. Hey Courtney! We have almost 40 people booked so far so I ordered 20 lanterns, one per couple. I believe they have matches at the resort so we should be good there. I have a call scheduled tomorrow with the wedding coordinator at the Grand so I'm going to have her answer a few additional questions for me. I'm thinking we will release them around 8 or 9 PM, after dinner. It's going to be a beautiful night .
