  1. I am in need of help, I have not booked a photographer yet, everyone I have looked at seems really expensive. Can you guys recommend a good photographer?

She has a facebook page where you can see all of her work (which looks amazing). I am more comfortable with this since I can actually see her work and I like it. However, I feel bad not using MDC's own spa and employees. I have thick curly hair that is just going to have to be put into an updo since it will be too frizzy in the humidity. I have never liked an updo I've ever gotten (for proms, other weddings I was in) and I am getting especially nervous about using a spa I know nothing about to do an updo for my wedding day. Does anyone have any thoughts on this or what you are planning on doing? I am not sure what to do for my hair and makeup. I am thinking about going to Jamaica on Saturday before the wedding to hopefully get a trial, but I have to do research.
  3. Congratulations!!!! I am booked for the week after, June 10th!!!! I did not get to do a visit, I am a little nervous.
  4. Hi CoEr, I actually just emailed Kerry about pricing through MDC, but I haven't considered using and outside company.
  5. Hi CoEr, I am also booked for MDC for June 10, 2014, and I elected the all inclusive package. My sister in law got married in Jamaica at Coyabo in Montego Bay in 2008, and the she did not have an all inclusive package, so we had to pay out of pocket for our food and drinks. The resort was a little pricey and a lot of the guests ventured off the resort to get cheaper food. So I decided that I did not want that, and that it would be easier for guests if we chose the all inclusive package.
  6. Hi, Congratulations to you on your wedding. I haven't posted in some time, but I am booked for June 10, 2014 at MDC, and I am excited. I am in the process of sending out my STD!
  7. Thanks Carrie13! I will check out is site!

  10. Hi Carrie13, I am so excited about starting the actual planning process! I agree, having the wedding at a later time will definitely help with dealing with the heat! I haven't booked any services yet. I have received about two emails from Kerry who is going to be my wedding coordinator at MDC. She has been really proactive so far, which is a great sign. She recently sent me a time line of what services I should be booking. In the email she also included different vendors that MDC works with. I have to start looking at different vendors to see who has the best prices, Kerry mentioned Paul Dilworth with Illusion Sound as the dj, but I will definitely look into other dj's to compare prices. I have been looking at save the dates, and we think that we found one on weddingpaperdivas. We bought a sample card to see how it looks, and if we love it we will go ahead with it! I am starting to feel like, I have time, but I need to make sure I stay to my time line! Are you feeling pressure yet?
  11. Great, idea I think that's beautiful, that they will be standing with you both!
  12. Hi Carrie13, Thanks for the save the date info, I will check out the site! I am so excited that you chose MDC for June, I just put in my deposit with them for June 10, 2014. Congratulations to you on your engagement, and picking your venue! I am excited to share notes with you! I have been to Jamaica, twice and the last time I was there was for a wedding in August, and it was terribly unbearable! The bride did provide fans for everyone, which was helpful! Cherina gave a good idea about a late wedding. My fiance and I have been talking about his suit and he is worried about the heat in June. I hope this helps!
  13. I love that my Fiance and I have a 3 year old, and I want her to help me pick my dress, and I am thinking I will have him walk down with her instead of being the flower girl.
  14. Hi Jinele, I have been working with destinationweddings.com, and I started with them because my fiance's sister originally used them for her wedding. As a guest in her wedding, they were wonderful and I enjoyed my experience. So when I got engaged and we decided on a destinaiton wedding I knew I would use destinationweddings.com. So far it's ok. Like Cherina posted they do not help you with planning, that was my mistake. They did give me suggesstions on resorts in Jamaica, but I had to do a lot of my own research and reach out. My TA, has not been getting back to me as soon as I like, but I am trying to just go with it for now. If it really get's to me I will ask for another TA, but so far, I have not complaints regarding destinaitonsweddings.com. My fiance's sister also loved her experience with them, I hope that helps!
