    It was beautiful! We had the steel drum band for the ceremony and I ended up canceling the DJ and made my own iPod playlist!

    When I get a chance, I'll post all my songs- it was a nice reggae mix.

        For any brides with a Jamaican background, what are you doing for favours and cake?

        If I was having the wedding at home, I would have black cake in a favour box. Still deciding what I should in Jamaica? Thoughts?

          My FMIL is making rum/black cake for favours. She can throw down with food and cake especially. We're looking into a reception venue that's allowing us to bring our own cake. FMIL says she could make it (possibly a regular pound cake since the favors would be rum). I hope that helps.


          But I have a general question about travel... seeing as how both of our families and majority of guests are from Jamaica/ travel there often, I was wondering if I should even get a TA. My resort allows ppl to stay off property (which is a main reason why I chose it). Should I just let guests book accomodations on their own? Some guests have never been there but I'm still wondering if it's even worth it.

          What are you ladies planning on doing?

            I didn't bother with a TA. Everyone makes their own arrangements on a regular basis, so I really didn't feel it was needed. So many people will just be staying with family anyway. I am not at an AI, so I just reserved the rooms for people wanting to stay at the resort, and they will pay when they get there. They made their own flight arrangements.

              For the cake I am doing 3 tiers, the bottom layer will be traditional JA wedding cake, the top 2 layers will be white cake with pineapple filling.

              For favors I am still deciding. Probably something basic like candy though.

                We ended up getting a black cake down there and brought the boxes down with us. My mom and my aunt cut and boxed it up as favors.

                  I'm thinking about getting a black cake down there and bringing down boxes also...I'm not sure yet how that's going to work with my resort. We're getting a 3-4 tier traditional wedding cake from another bakery in Mobay, but the resort offers a cake for as part of the wedding package (it's very basic-looking though). So ideally we would have the resort make the black cake as our free cake and we use that as our favors. I haven't talked to them yet as far as how we could get it sliced and put in boxes, but I hope we can work something out.

                  I wasn't planning on using a TA at first, but someone on this forum recommended a good TA so we decided to do it. It's been really helpful because she's keeping track of who has booked so far, otherwise we would have no idea. Our resort is an AI though so I don't know if it would work as well with people staying in different resorts. We have about 10 people coming that still live in JA, and they're making their own arrangements since it's cheaper for residents (some coming from Kingston are going to stay at the resort at least 1 night).

                    We are doing a mix of everything: Nora Jones, Sade, Anita Baker, Luther, Freddie MacGregor, Marcia Griffiths, Sanchez, Anthony Cruz, Glenn Washington, Voicemail - even some country love songs. We love music so we're incorporating it all.
                    Love so nice, we're walking down the aisle twice!

                      I was not born in Jamaica but I just wanted to say that Jamerican's is an amazing word and I love it a lot!
