    cancellations occur..have your TA monitor the situation and keep your fingers crossed...you just might get lucky.

     

    good luck and happy planning!!

Luckily things open up the actual day of my wedding (Sun 1/29). Did some research online and found out there are TWO conventions and a Jazz Festival at the Iberostar the week before my wedding. I was told that January was there down season, but the place is going to be PACKED! UGH!!! Crazy!!!

            Never been a fan of the whole garter thing myself the last few weddings we went to they skipped this and the last time I saw someone do it I think the entire room rolled their eyes. Also not throwing my bouquet, every time I got herded up there with all the other single girls for that I swore to myself that I would never do that to my friends. Don't I sound cynical this morning? Must need more coffee lol.

              If you sound cynical this morning, you should see how I em every day hahahaha.  Good to know though.  I'm pretty sure I am going to just ditch the idea.  I looked up the history of them, apparently it's about consummating the marriage or blah blah blah from the olden times.  Now that I know the meaning, I'm even more against it.  None of my guests need to be thinking of that ;)

                I am totally against it and took it out but my FI threw a major fit along with the rest of my family who found out I took it out.  So, I gave in but I bought the tackiest blue,silver and rhinestoned Dallas Cowboys garter I could find and I'm not telling anyone so they will all be surprised.

                  That's hilarious! I wonder if I can find a Jamaican flag one at a gift shop....

                    Has anyone used the reggae band Pace? Any feedback? This is the prefered band for the grand. Want to make sure that they're good before I book anything.
