    Yes, sky lanterns are allowed.  I was married at the Suites.  We tried to do them the night of the welcome party, but most of my guests arrived that day and were exhausted so they didn't stick around after it ended.  Then we were going to do them the night of the wedding, but the weather didn't cooperate, so we did them the last night we were there on the beach.  We had 10 lanterns and 11 people left on the last night so it actully worked out perfectly!

      Thank you for your reply, I'm so happy i'll be able to release them! I can't wait, its a memorable experience that will make for a gorgeous photo. Do you need a permit of any kind?

        Yes and no. The rehearsal dinner is supposed to be primarily for the people who are involved in the rehearsal of the wedding. However, it is common practice, to invite out of town guests to the rehearsal dinner (even for weddings in your home town).

        On another note, glad to hear you've got the steel pans band!  We had them at our ceremony.  They played while guests were arriving, and they also playved the Canon in D for my entrance, and they played while we were signing, and champagne afterwards.  We had them for an hour, it worked out well.  I liked it so much more than recorded music.  We forgot to tip them though :(

          Starrysim,

           

          The video was good but I don't feel that they captured much of the talking from when we were getting ready. Supposedly my husband did something funny for me that he wanted on the video but instead they got it as video and put music over it so you can't hear what he's saying. My father also composes music, which I used for the processional and recessional and I was hoping to hear it as I walked up and down the aisle but I forgot to mention it to Marcia Roberts so she used clips of us in the edited video with other music so you can't hear his music on the video.

          Actually, mine were just mailed out as well.  Unfortunately there's a little issue because they sent it to the wrong address, so it will be a bit delayed.  I'm so anxious to get them!  We have a video too - what did you think of yours?

            ErinDoc,

             

            I think I still look at my pictures every day because I had so much fun, but I am pretty much back to reality now. I've been working on the name change process, but I still haven't received the legal certificate from Jamaica and the MVA will not accept the Certified License that we signed in Jamaica. I was able to get my social security card, but not my drivers license so I feel like I don't know who to call myself.

             

            For Past Brides, How long does it take to get the legal marriage certificate from Jamaica?

                Thanks for the info! We are looking into going down for a long weekend as well. I can't wait! Our travel agent is calling today to see if they can reserve our date for us at the suites. I'm crossing my fingers and toes!!!

                Congrats! My fiance and I are planning to do a site visit next month! I've been before but he hasn't so I wanted us to see it together before our wedding in June. We're calling it a mini "working vacation". We're just going for a long weekend. We plan to meet the wedding coordinator and staff, check out the different venues/activities, restaurants, and ask a gazillion questions. We're also planning to shoot a video there that we're going to post on our wedding website for our guests to see so they can get excited about the trip! They do offer discounted rates if you inquire via e-mail. Make sure you get a confirmation number in writing before you book your airfare though. Best Wishes!

                  Aren't they gorgeous? Just found out you don't need a permit cause iberostar is on private property. I'm gonna look for them locally and buy one for each of my guests to release. Can't wait!

                  Wow, I've never seen such thing - beautiful!

                    Well all, I'm back from a week of bliss and STRUGGLING to adjust to reality!!! I've already decided I'm going to have to start planning my next vacation in order to get out of this funk! :P It was beautiful, amazing, and went WAY too fast! I'm hoping to get my pro pics before I post my review, but I'll add my pics and bits and pieces of info as I think of it. 

                     

                    Here's my table at Aunt Ruby's (Suites): (17 people, non-private, three large cylinder vases, four small square vases, about 12 large votive candles, 20 small votives, no chargers) They put the Christmas lights up right before our reception and they were perfect!!

                      Kimberli - Welcome back!  Everything looks beautiful!  I know, it's so hard sitting around waiting for the pro photos.  Mine are stuck in courier limbo, I'm dying here waiting for them.  Oh, and you looked BEAUTIFUL!  You're the one with the one-shoulder Allure dress, right?  I must see more pics :)
