Back from wedding!!!

Recommended Posts

Honestly the wedding was better than I could have ever imagined. To answer a couple of your questions

1)There was no problem using fake flower petals – they didn’t really blow away in the wind and were easily cleaned up by rolling up the aisle runner. ( the hotel took care of it)

2)We brought an outside photographer. Michael tried to get us to pay him, but I remained strong and said I had no contract with him. I also asked him not to take pictures. The hotel does provide him with a list of all weddings , their locations and the number of guests so there is no hiding from him. Be strong and do not pay him.

3)We did get a dvd made. They did a really good job on it. I gave them 2 songs to put on and they filled it with other nice songs. A note of caution – they put a microphone on the groom. Be careful what you say because it may end up on the dvd. The minister tells everyone to come up and congratulate you after the wedding and that part of the dvd has no background sound so that you can hear all the congratulations. After the wedding the dvd guy takes you and makes you do a bunch of different poses while he tapes. Try your best not to look at the camera. I kept looking back into the camera and it made it look even more posed than it was.

4)We had the wedding at the beach gazebo however the other gazebo is really nice. I was just set on having it on the beach. Also the other gazebo is quite far from the suite wing of the hotel as is the plantation restaurant.

5)They gave me a three tier wedding cake and I did not pay extra. It was okay, if cake is really important to you upgrade it, but it was perfectly fine. I had asked for them not put fruit on the cake as I had seen in some of the pictures instead they put some flowers on it. I would bring your own cake decorations and give them to her – i am sure you can find something nice at a craft store even if it is just seashells

6)Oh and another thing I would have done is brought a nice pen for signing the wedding documents – the pen they have is just plain

7)The wedding document lists you as a spinster if you have never been married. I guess this is common, but it made me laugh lots while signing it.

cool.gifOn a side note I bought the just married flip flops to wear the next day and they gave me blisters and didn’t even leave the marks in the sand.

9)I asked about the room upgrade when we checked in – which was on a Friday and they didn’t have anything till the Monday. I got Chandlyn to check too, I thought it would put extra pressure on them.

Let me know if you guys have any other questions while it is fresh in my head.

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
