    Double-check first...maybe it has changed, but I didn't get to modify my food package or you best believe it would have been! Hopefully you're able to do it, because it's a beautiful place to have your wedding. We went to the 7-mile beach after our wedding and they had two weddings going on at the beach. I know I was in some of those people photos! There's no privacy at all and people are just laying/standing around looking at your wedding!

      They took off $15.00 from the food price for me--I omitted a bit of the food though. Every little bit does help. I just have to pass the new information along to my parents and make sure everything is still good to go.

      Jen, again, thank you so much for sharing your pictures and answering all of our questions.

      Also, Kerry has been on it lately with her emails. I received a response to my outline answers/questions.

      She said I was good to go with using Margaret Myrie for my cake. I made sure to make sure about the minimum though. I'm thinking the minimum is if you use their baker to make the cake.

      Also---There is a $100 fee to use the sound system with your Ipod. That's what I plan on doing---I'll just assign my brother or the best man to keep an eye on the ipod.

      Everything is starting to look up!

I asked about cutting down the menu too, but those are their set prices...so good luck! It ends up being $135 a person after the taxes and we had a total of 30 people (including us). It's alot of food, so just make sure you tell your guest not to eat all day until the wedding! lol Honestly, don't stress...Linus and Kerry are on top of everything and when it gets closer to your wedding, that's when they'll really be in touch with you. Before my wedding, there were times I didn't hear from anyone for a week, but I didn't worry about it b/c I knew they were just opening the resort. Hope this helps!! :)

        Congratulations on your wedding! It's so great that you're on here! :) I would love to see your pics!!! I'm so glad that you have a positive experience to share with us! We will probably be having the same number of people...quick question - I noticed that you had a band...what made you chose a band over a DJ and would you recommend them? Oh, also did you have a rehearsal dinner?

        Thank you SO much!!! And congrats again!

            Your not alone feeling that way, LOL! Since we pushed our date back I don't have anything to do but come on here and other wedding websites to feel like I'm doing something. I may have to find me a DIY project to hold me over. I stated before that I haven't been talking too much about our plans with my family and friends they don't seem as interested as I would like them to be and it may be because we were dragging our feet, but I'm thankful to have you guys. So we can stalk together, were not too far from each other anyway!
            4/1/11 in St. Kitts at the Marriott I married my best-friend!!!

                Just saw my ticker with this last post - 3 months and 4 days!!! Wow has time flown by! :) Ahhh!

                By the way, Mastistyle, I'm still working on my invitations - I'm definitely NOT creative enough to do a DIY invitation - mad props to those girls who can! I did Save the Date magnets, but finding the right theme for a destination wedding invitation is pretty tricky!

                My colors are fuschia and orange so I kind of want that in the invitation, without it looking like a baby shower invite, which is what my FI pointed out with one sample! Invitations also get pricy quickly so I'm trying to watch what I get - Invitations By Dawn has some nice beach invitations.

                The problem is that my two older sisters were recently married (both within the last 4 years) so my parents are having the same guest list for my wedding even though my sisters weddings were both here in the states. So although the invite list is 150 we are only expecting 30 - 35. I think it's ridiculous to have the same guest list and to pay for so many invitations, but hey, they are the ones paying, so I'm going to keep my mouth shut!

                  Hi everyone. Has anyone heard (or seen) the gym at MDC? is it complete? nice? Size/set up?

                    I haven't even thought of the gym! Shows how lazy I am.

                    I would like to know about the gym and the other amenities there. The putting green, the pool table, the wii program, the spa. Was everything nice or was it something they just posted to make it seem like they had a lot of stuff to do there?

                      Would you guys mind if I picked your brains a bit about invitations? What are your thoughts on the whole layered, pocket, folded invitations? I just really think I should be getting mine out relatively soon, right?! I'd really appreciate your thoughts!!! Here are some that I've liked so far:

                      Island of Palm Trees Item # NU-5KFH11988AT - Invitations and Announcements by Invitation Consultants.

                      -Can customize the font color to fuschia or mango and can also customize the ribbon color (but no fuschia or mango - so I'd probably stick with the brown).

                      Hmm, just read a review on it actually and apparently once they are folded they are too thick to mail as a letter so you have to mail it as a large envelope which is about $1 stamp - that might make this a no then!

                      Seal-n-Send.com: Seal-n-Send Wedding Invitations - Inexpensive and unique wedding invitations

                      -I like how this one has a response card built into the invitation that guests simply tear off and mail back to you - doesn't look like the customize colors though

                      Invitations By Dawn

                      This one is perhaps my favorite - it's definitely my FI's favorite - map of Jamaica is just so perfect! I just want to make it a bit more feminine, perhaps by having my colors instead...and it's affordable!

                      Then there's this one - my FI doesn't like it at all, but I think it's SO super cute! I wanted to share it with you guys in case one of you liked it!

                      Invitations By Dawn

                      Thanks ladies!!! :)
