    Weather? Wedding In October?

    We were in Montego Bay from 10/22-10/26 and the forecast before arriving had thunderstorms everyday. It was gorgeous everyday we were there. The only time it rained was when we were on a plane on the way back home. I have heard when it rains it's very short anyway so I wouldn't worry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 3 weeks from today is the big day! And we realized we can't afford our photographer. We're going to borrow his brothers camera and take our own pics I guess lol....ah well such is life. We didn't want to struggle to pay $1500 for our photographer and we aren't at our best weight wise. I had lost 60lbs prior to the pregnancy but have gained back about 30 and he's gained back some weight as well [emoji53] We plan to do a vow renewal at some point so I can wear my original dress - so we'll get a photographer for that [emoji5]️ At this point I'm just focusing on shopping for Jamaica and hoping the new dress I ordered online fits and looks good! Oh and having a good time while we're there! It's a vacation for us too after all. When we get back we have a lot of preparing to do for the baby so this time away is definitely needed for both of us [emoji18] It's also nice knowing I'll have two other preggos to hang out with at the wedding! Lol and funny thing is we're all around the same week wise - maybe a week or two apart! It's an exciting time! [emoji64]???? Sorry for the long post - just needed to vent I guess.

  3. Thanks everyone! We're excited about the baby It's hard losing my mom but thankfully I've got my fiancée for support. I really am not stressing about people booking late or not going, it's just I'm concerned if they do book and I've already counted them out will the WC not allow any changes if I've already given them a final count? I am not doing anything extra - still have to pay off the actual wedding package and photographer! Lol. And I still have to renew my own passport and I have to buy another dress now and he still has to get his suit/outfit. I wish I had the time and money to do OOT bags or something fun but it seems people don't love them anyway. Thank you cards after the wedding will have to suffice, lol.

  4. Well ladies I've been MIA but now our wedding is getting close....50 days until we leave! And I'm still waiting for people to book....how annoying. I'm glad I only plan to do this once! Lol. A lot has happened in the last few months.....I'm pregnant for starters! I'll be 26 weeks for the wedding, lol. So I'm gonna end up buying a new dress....which sucks bc I loved my dress! And then in sad news...my mom passed away a few weeks ago I kind of thought my parents wouldn't make it anyway for financial reasons but I had hopes at least but now it's definitely a no go. Stressful times for sure as we are still saving up to pay off the wedding package and photographer! We've paid off our travel agent luckily. I'm just ready to be there and kind of get it over with! Is that bad? Sorry if I rambled.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. These are my sandals I just recently found as I was shopping for bridal shower shoes at DSW! Definitely scored that day and they were on clearance! I love them, exactly what I wanted! [emoji7] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Are you still getting married at Riu Ocho Rios Jamaica

  7. Yes you know I just read some stuff in another group and they were saying how they used wifi all over the resort even the beach and it was good connection! I am so excited now! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. They're called brads, you can find them at hobby lobby, michaels, any craft store.
  9. Has anyone seen pictures or read reviews where brides got their hair and makeup done at the resort salon? I've only seen one and it looked good so I was gonna go with that but now hearing about this airbrush thing has me questioning booking an outside MUA....I just don't wanna spend the money on vendor fees if I do that.
  10. Thanks girls! So happy that part is done! Now I have 4 extras at home and I was going back and forth about inviting coworkers. There are more than 4 that I would need for coworkers and I don't want to exclude people and make people feel bad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk So I don't know if I am going to print more and deal with the cutting and all that again or just not invite anybody from work. Thing is someone already asked if they could go so I feel bad inviting just her and no one else. Would a fb invite for coworkers be weird? Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Ok here is the finished product with the sleeve Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hey ladies! So I've been thinking more about the details. How are you all going to stay in contact with your guests since the only wifi is in the lobby? I'm pretty sure we are going to arrive one day before everyone. So I was thinking maybe email everyone when we arrive and know our room number so they can call us in the room when they get to theirs? I still want a welcome type dinner but I want people to be able to contact us when they arrive.
  13. Update: I decided to cut the corners and leave the invites as is. I could not find colored cardstock that matched my colors so I bought this white gold shimmery cardstock for the sleeves. We're going to try printing stamps we found online onto the sleeves. I'll let you all know how that works out! Lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I downloaded the font I used for our names online bc I hated the ones in word lol! Fonts were my struggle for sure! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I feel like I'm just going to leave them as is. Especially bc I have to put the RSVPs together and still have to buy more cardstock for the sleeves. I figure if I'm not going to trim them I should at least have a sleeve lol. I'm wondering what to put on the outside though. Maybe just some stamps or something. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
