Hi everyone,

Just realizing that unlike you all , i guess we are getting off to a late start in planning this wedding. We plan to be at the resort on the week of Jan 10/11. But are just starting all of this planning now, I have been to a wedding in Jamaica before, however I guess she just made it look easier then it was! So I guess this is a call for help can anyone tell me the first steps!

Thanks so much

Jen

Hi Ladies...I'm pretty new to this site (other than reading through a couple different threads, this one is the longest I've come across!)

We have yet to decide on the resort we'll have our wedding at next year but Azul Sensatori is in the top 3. We plan to visit in mid-November to decide for sure. 

Question for all of you...I see that there are a lot of Spring brides but that might be too soon for us. What's everyone's opinion on weather in the area and when it's best? We had our hearts set on early October but now I'm reading more and more that talks about a lot of rain during that time. Has anyone been in fall? If October isn't ideal, is June or July totally out of the question? Thanks in advance for your input!

Hey everyone, I haven't been on here in sooo long!  I just got my photos from Erik Rodriguez, and I love them.  If anyone would like to see them, add me on facebook (meghan yao), and ask any questions as well.  It's easier for me to answer questions on fb then scrolling through all these posts lol.

WELCOME! The other lovely ladies can tell you for sure about the fall and the pros and cons but the only big one I can think of is Hurricane Season and that would increase your chance of rain but those are so few and far between :)

Hey girls,

 

Has anyone considered skipping the cake?  I can't decide if I really want/need a cake. 

 

Do any of our married girls have pics of your cake? 

 

Oh, and my bridesmaid realized that it wasn't fair to me to skip my wedding based on her feelings for another guest, so it's all good now! :o)

Oh, and many of you don't know since I've been planning my wedding for a while, but I wasn't officially engaged yet.  I got the proper proposal this past weekend on a surprise trip to NYC.  Here's a pic.  He is the greatest.  I love him, I love my ring, and I am a happy girl!! proposal.jpg

Ha ha, yeah, I tend to do things backwards, hence the 13 year old child!!  :o)  Well, we had discussed it and kind of decided a time frame.  I picked out my ring, and he dilly dallied thinking he could just go pick it up.  Then something came up with some money coming in so he waited.  When we finally discussed the ring again, he hadn't ordered it, and it was a 6-8 week time frame to get it in.  My finger is a size 4!!!  So, we went ahead and booked (not to lose the date), and it just rolled from there!  It is pretty funny, but it's all good.  I told everyone it's Officially Official now. :o)

First off, welcome to all the new ladies.  Seems to be a few of them rolling in and I'm not really keeping up to speed on who's around here.  So WELCOME one and all.  thewave.gif

 


Meghan - I asked you to be my facebook friend.  :-)  Can't wait to see your pics!



TLGnhci - We're kind of skipping the cake.  Just going to get the small $60 one for cutting purposes (I'm totally not for this but FI, my mother and apparently everyone else under the sun thinks photo ops are necessary).  We're going to just order extra petit fours (if we think that's needed) and also I'm going cake box favours that I'll arrange like a wedding cake (filled w/ candies).

 

Glad to hear that your bm decided to put her feelings aside for your wedding.  That's great news.  And CONGRATS  cheer2.gifon the "official" engagement.  Size 4?!?!!?  Holy tiny fingers batman!!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
