    I'm still over a year away from my big day, but would like to know what the next step in the process is? I've received confirmation on our date, and have started the paper work for the long version of our birth certificates. Do I wait as I take care of planning details on my end? Or is there something else I should be doing in the meantime?

      When we first started planning we did just that.. I sent out Save the Dtes, to tell people we were getting married in Jamaica, and the date of the wedding. That way they could start planning and saving. I just put on the Save the Date that more information is to follow on the formal invite. We also put on the save the date, the address to our wedding website ( we created a wedding website on ewedding.com) so that people could check there for any info or updates. I then made sure to keep it updated with package info and quotes, and any other updates... :) it worked out great! and then the pressure was off to make sure i have every detail nailed down.. :)

The issue is airfare and hotel rates are not even published yet for 2013. I am wondering should I send out Save the Dates now and send out the actual invites once I have purchased our hotel and air package. What are your thoughts on this????

        I would suggest that you send out save the dates now with as much info as you can and than invites later.  I sent my save the date out at 9 mths in advance and I am sending invites out 4mths in advance with the RSVP is to be back about 2 mths before the wedding and than I think I will do a pre-trip mail out about 1mth before we leave.

          Being that you have so much time, take this opportunity to read these boards and soak in as much info as ya like for ideas... decorating ideas, and determining what projects you would like to take on etc.. Ie: welcome kits or OOT bags etc..  the more projects you decide to take on, the longer it takes, so you will be thankfully for all this time! I know it is hard to guesstimate this early, on numbers.. however maybe start a list of things you would "like " to do, and then you will know what things you can do and work on now, and what things you can wait on..:) trust me.. it goes by soo fast!!!! I remember when i was a year away, and now i am 7 weeks away.. goes sooo quickly!!!  :)

            Hi Cloned,

            On my final wedding details sheet.. for the Beach, It states right on there that the non private dinners are to last 1.5 hours.. if they go over you will be charged 200.00... Soo i would just plan for it to be 1.5 hours. I am doing the same, so i have my dinner at the steakhouse starting at 6:30, and then the Bonfire to start at 8pm-10PM

How long will it take for everyone to enjoy the dinner.

            Any suggestions? Thanks.

              Hey luvmoo,


              Thanks for the clarification. I forgot about the wedding details sheet. They send you a last wedding detail sheet about a month before the wedding and there was no indication of the $200 charge.  I  have requested the 7pm dinner so I will probably have the bonfire around 8:30pm.  I guess I will confirm when I get there. I leave January 1!

                No worries Cloned :)

                It didn't say anything on your final details sheet? This is the final details sheet i was referring to that shows the charge.. if you look on the page that talks baout the options for the non private dinner, it is at the bottom of the page..

                Nonetheless, a 7PM dinner and 8:30PM Bonfire would be perfect :) only a couple more days! yayy!!!!!! Have FUN and we can't wait to hear all the details and see some pics!!

                  FLOWERS QUESTION

                   

                  Hey Ladies... I am working to finalize everything with Jodi-Ann, so just looking for some insight! For those of you who are using or have used Tai Flora, are you getting a special arrangement for the sweetheart table? In no ways am I a wedding pro, so I am kind of lost when it comes to this. Also, what are you are your final rundown of flowers? Just so I can make sure I am not missing anything. 

                   

                  THANKS

                    I used Taiflora, and they had a simple arrangement that was on the signing table with orhcids and roses, they moved that inside to the cake table after the ceremony on the beach! There's no reason to order all kinds of flowers when you can move your ceremony decor to your reception!

                     

                    As for photography, I used Marcia Roberts. I'm sure digipix would do a good job, but they are also the same people who run around the resort, taking your pictures at dinner, with the parrots etc and charging you $15 for it...

                      For those brides who had the bonfire at their wedding - did it really only last an hour? Or can it be pushed longer?
