Our was Wedding cake and Jamican Smiles...mmmmmm. Ours friends are having a 4th of July party tomorrow and they are making Jamaican Smiles. They went as far as renting a machine that will make the premade Pina Coloda and Daquaris in the maching like in the bar. It is awsome! Then we will just add the Rum cream (and when that runs out Irish wiskey will work!) It will bring back some awsome memories!

I'm so grateful I have found this website! I've been going through most of the threads, and I have found some helpful tips and advice that I didn't even think about. Like, I didn't know we were going to need music, for the signing of the registry, and for totally forgot about the recessional. I was just focused on the processional. So thanks ladies!

 

I see that most people are getting married (or have been married) at Ochos Rios or Negril. We're getting married at Whitehouse in just 5 weeks! So I hope they are as good at Whitehouse as they are at OR and Negril.

 

I read that you can bring your own flutes, cake toppers, etc., but we're getting the Twilight package and it's supposed to come with toasting flutes. Has anyone seen what these flutes look like? Should be our own? I mean we bought some for our reception that we're going to have when we get back to LV, but I really don't want to travel to Jamaica with them.

 

Last question, did most of you use recorded music, or did you use the live musicians whether it was for your ceremony and/or reception?

We had a live musician for the processional; however, it was my brother who is an awesome trumpet player, so it was free! Otherwise we used recorded music.

I loved my hair! It stayed all day and evening even though it was a very windy day. I found it well worth the money! Infact, I am having my hair done again this weekend for my AHR since it made me feel so good.

I did not have my make-up done but I had gone to Macy's and got tip from them. I bought some of the make up there and then went to CVS and bought simular (and cheeper...hehe) colors. My Friend had her make-up done though and it was really really nice. I have herd other brides say they use too much eye liner though.

I had my hair and make-up done at the resort and I LOVED my hair, and ended up loving my make-up once I toned down the lipstick and eyeliner back in my room. I'd recommend getting hair and make-up done there - just ask them to go light on the eyeliner - especially if you don't usually wear any! Also, allow plenty of time. It took me 2.5 hours to get my hair and make-up done.

It took me just over 2 hours too. We thought we had plently of time and were gonna go get something to eat but changed our mind and thankfully we did cause when we got back to my friends room we only had like 45 minutes to finish getting ready. We made it but had we went for lunch I would have been late for my own wedding...lol

 

Well, wish me luck ladies. I am off to my AHR weekend. I have 0 controll of cause my mom, who is normally anything but controlling, took it over...lol The only thing I am allowed to do is buy the alcohol and show up.....uuuggggghhhhh........lol I will post pics on monday!

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
