    Thanks girls for all of this initial info! And congrats to all of you! I can't believe the wedding is getting so close!
    Becky N, that is awesome we will be done there at the same time, and not to mention, I see you are from MN, I'm from ND. We are both northern brides, ha! Thank goodness it will be over 80 degrees when we get married instead of "-who knows how cold it is"!

      That is funny... this past January all everyone could say is, man I wish it was next year and we were in Jamaica right now. : )

      How long are you going to be there for? We will arrive on Friday the 2nd I think... with most of the guests arriving on Saturday (your wedding day). I'll have to take a peak at your wedding... do you have any of the details planned yet (wedding location, reception locatoin, etc?)

              That is exactly what all of my friends have been saying, especially since this we didn't start out with a very nice spring!

              We will be done there the 29th of December through January 7th. We are planning on have the wedding on the beach (not the gazebo on the beach) at 4 pm. I have chose aqua and white as the colors and since my fiance and I both have larger families we are having just our siblings/sibling-in-laws as attendents, plus my best friend. At the moment I think we will have the reception at Mammee's (I was really hoping for Seagrapes but since it is on a Saturday we can't reserve it), but I am toying with the idea of a private reception at the Plantation. Do you or anyone else know anything about the plantation. I would love to see some pics!

              Do you have quite a few people coming down for your wedding? Do you have anything planned yet?? place, ect?? I think there will only be 30 or so ppl for mine :-)

                We are still debating whether we are having our wedding on the beach or at the beach gazebo. Either way I want to keep the decorations pretty basic... as the beach is so beautiful on its own. My main color is fuschia... which is the color of the bms dresses. The gms will be in khaki suits.

                We are having a smaller group as well. Originally we were thinking somewhere between 35-50... but with prices and flaky friends who knows... but probably more 20-30. We are giong to do the free dinner at Mammee Bay and then the reception at Seagrape (I think). I really like the idea of dancing directly on the beach.

                As for the plantation... several previous BDW bridse have used it. If you search through theJamaica thread and the wedding review threads you should be able to find some... I'll take a look though. I had also thought of it because I like the privacy... but most Mammee Bay brides say they had plenty of privacy. We are also trying to keep the budget low, so I would rather put the money towards something else. Mammee Bay is also more space limited... so no need to spend extra money for decorations/table settings... which most people don't even care about. (IMHO)

                In the end it seems like you can't really go wrong no matter what you pick... everyone's seem to turn out great.
