    I am doing my own makeup. However, as far as eyelashes I will be doing individual eyelash extensions right before I head to Jamaica. I would said get some nice Mac eyelashes and use the glue called DUO they sell it at Walgreens. Buy the black one. I have several makeup artist friend that always recommend it. 

     

    Good luck.

      Congrats on your marriage! That's the most important part! ;)

       

      Lessons learned... not really.. but I would suggest to really just have the mentality of just going with the flow... if things dont work out as planned due to uncontrollable circumstances to just breath.. and let things take its course (ie.. wedding coordinators scrambling to make things work out.. ahahah)

       

      Oh.. though, I will say one thing. I hired Misha Earle for pictures on the wedding day. She is awesome.. Big personality and professional. However, due to the weather all my pictures where inside for the most part. .. so a few days later I decided to hire digipix at the resort to do a photoshoot back in my dress on the beach. The guy was really nice, and did some great poses. I was really excited to see the pictures.. when I did.. I almost cried. .. they where terrible.. 80% where out of focus (I dont know if he just had the wrong setting or what... the camera he used was bottom of the barrel kit SLR). I ended up paying $315 for 40 photos that where mediocre at best. I should have gotten Misha to come back... kicking myself for that now.

       

      I didn't bring much.. just a few things (guest book, fans, table numbers) as I couldn't be bothered dealing with that.. I had stuff delivered to the hotel from local vendors instead.. best money spent.

          Has anyone ordered jerk spice and rum in Jamaica to be delivered to the resort? I was thinking of doing this for favours? Also how many Ske Lanterns?! One per person or one per couple?? Thanks!

            We used http://weddingbellesjamaica.com/ . I was in contact Jo-Anne. She was fantastic. She did up gift bags for us which where delivered to the hotel. There was a bunch of stuff you could select from (rum, sauces, coffee, etc)

             

            In regards to sky lanterns.. I didn't have them myself, but I have used them.. you need two people at least to set them off.. (one needs to hold while the other lights it) so one per couple is more then enough.

                  Thank you for your review, this was so helpful! Sounds like you (and the WCs) were able to roll with the changes! A wedding is a party, not a performance. At the end of the day you married the one you love, so everything went perfect! :)

                    Congrats! I bought my lanterns on groupon from wishlantern.com- Havent used them yet but they look really great and easy to pack. Just check if your resort will allow you to use them! :)

                      Tai flora's ceiling lanterns are really expensive. Is anybody bringing them down on their own? Just curious where you bought and where you got the actual lights for them. Thanks!!
