We didn't do an actual ceremony rehearsal. When we had our formal meeting we Sandra she asked me who I wanted to walk down the aisle and in what order (she was taking good notes, of course)! Our order was (with best man standing in the gazebo already):

Groom with his parents
My mother and brother (who carried the rings)
Matron of Honor
Flower Girl
Bride and Father

I guess since we didn't have a big wedding party we didn't feel the need to have an actual rehearsal for the ceremony. Sandra got everyone together and lined them up when we were about to start. She stood by everyone and cued them when it was time for them to start walking. Everyone on the wedding staff wears earpieces connected to a walkie talkie (or some other sort of communication device) so that they can stay in communication with each other from different places...it was actually kind of cool watching them work!

Once you walk down the aisle and you are given away, the officiant asks that you and your FI stand on the other side of the ceremony table so that the ceremony table is between you and your guests (if that makes sense).

In my opinion everything went well for my ceremony without the rehearsal since Sandra was there for every step of the way

Jacy had originally scheduled our rehearsal at 5 p.m. the night before, but when we got to the gazebo, there was a maitre'd there telling us we couldn't have the rehearsal there because a couple was having their private dinner in the gazebo. We all just hung around for a while trying to figure out what to do. When Jacy arrived; she said she wasn't aware that there was a private dinner, but we could do the rehearsal on the beach, which we did. It was fine. The only thing that should have been done, was to have Blake & Erika stand on the opposite side of the table - facing the guests. The officiant stood in front of the table and blocked the view of the bridal party from the whole left side. This probably wouldn't have happened if we'd been able to rehearse in the actual gazebo, where the table is already set up.

Erika sent me her pro pictures from her June 12th wedding. There are some other non-pro pics mixed in. The package came with 50, but they bought all the pictures the photographer took. All in all, I think they came out pretty good.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
