          Great pics! Thanks for sharing. I love the one of you playing the steel drums and sitting on the steps of the gazebo. That is so a pose I would do! LOL

            The Good: The ROR was just beautiful. We reserved the most expensive suite because we worried about upgrades falling through. It was amazing! Our families were impressed with the resort. My new step-mom-in-law, however, was disappointed that the food was the same every night, but she went to the same restaurant every night, so whatever.

            The weather was perfect. Yes, it was a little windy, as you'll see in the pics, but I still wore my hair half down and my vail. Both faired okay. It rained only one day...in Negril where we honeymooned and only for two hours. The Jamaicans look at rain as a blessing, and we didn't let it get us down.

            The beach gazebo was beautiful...we were up in the air about where we wanted to get married until we got down there...and guess what, that's okay. Chandlyn let us make all the cahnges we wanted at our meeting with her. She was very easy to get along with. We gave her our bubbles, our dj music and our wedding favors along with a seating chart and she took care of it all. (The favors had everyone's name on the box she placed them at their seating assignment).

            Our wedding was at 1pm at the beach gazebo, follwed by a 3pm reception at the disco (there were 30 of us). The dj played the songs I brought and some of his own. Dinner was at Mammees @ 6:30 and our guests used the extra time to freshen up and change. Later that night there was the resort beach party and that just added to the night. Lots of fun!

            Our friends are wedding photogs and they came down and took our pics as a gift. We were worried about Micheal and some of the e-mails we had recieved from him, but we didn't pay a fee and he left us alone.

            We got the steel drum band: I highly reccomend this. They added so much to the ceremony. They played Is this Love by Marley as I walked down the isle, and stayed until after the pictures were taken. They even made us get up there and play with them. The bass player was super impressed by my husband's skill on the guitar. It was funny. I don't think they thought he was really gonna play. I didn't have as much luck on the steel drums, but I just pretended.

            The Bad: Our travel agent screwed up our departure time. And if it weren't for the ice storm, we would have missed our flight to Jamaica. She also promised upgrades that no one recieved. She had my husband convinced that we should hire an outside florist. This was totally unnecessary and cost us much more than it had to, not to mention that the outside florist didn't show up to my room with my boquette and the boutineirs until 3 minutes before the ceremony. This put me in a bit of a panic! My mom also had to run down with the boys' flowers and pin them on them real quick. The travel agent also arranged our catamaran cruise on Sunday, which turned out to be a fiasco, but we made the most of it. I wore my wedding dress to climb Dunn's RIver Falls for my TTD photos. No, I don't have them yet, but I will post them later.

            Other bad news. I had shingles for most of the trip, but I didn't let it bother me too much. My friend's mother ended up sick and in the hospital down there. The baggage handlers went on strike at MBJ the day my guests all left which caused them to miss most of their flights and have to be delayed. I lost a diamond in my wedding ring 2 hours after Gavin put it on my finger. My girlfriend spilled a beer on my dress right before the reception (it came right out). One of my wedding photographers had the flu.

            After a while it was a comedy of errors...all of which were out of our control, so we just had to laugh and I thank God that I am as layed back as I am, otherwise I'd have been feaking out! By far the good out-weighed the bad and the bad just gave us some great stories to tell.

            Here are some more photos...Honeymoon and stuff.

                Does the steel drum band play for a full hour or does the ceremony count in the hour.
                I was just wandering if the ceremony is 20 minutes do they only play 40 minute? For 350$/hr I was hoping to have them play for a full hr

                    Aw, sorry to hear about the bad stuff. I hope you tell your travel agent that you will NOT be using her again!?
                    All of it was out of your control and I think you have the right attitude.
                    Just remember how beautiful and fun your wedding day was and the feel of the sunshine in Jamaica!
                    Where did you honeymoon in Negril?

                      I'm glad you were able to let everything just roll off your shoulders and still enjoy the moment! I didn't know we could rent the disco during the afternoon, that's good to know!

                      Congrats again and thanks for the review
