    Ok Ladies I'm Booked! I see that you all are getting things addressed better, by the way Mariam said she came on the site. I really wanted to book this location, especially at the grand opening rate. Today I also narrowed my dress list down from 6 dresses to 2 dresses with my mother and sister. My sister even found her 2 dresses to compliment my 2 dresses. Oh well I will keep visiting the thread soaking up information and providing any helpful feedback I can.

    Happy Planing To You ALL!!!

    Mastistyle - I don’t think you can bring flowers through Customs but you may be able to find out on there website. Did you decide to contact the transportation guy?

    Claudette – Did you receive the PM or get your transportation taken care of?
    4/1/11 in St. Kitts at the Marriott I married my best-friend!!!

      Congrats on booking. Thanks have definitely gotten better with replies from Kerry. I'm really not stressing out like I was before---I definitely should thank you for helping with that!

      As for the cake---Margaret Myrie (gritty56@yahoo.com) has been a huge help in picking out flavors.

      http://media.theknot....arge_image.jpg

      This is the cake the fiance and I loved.

      She then sent us a list of flavors:

      As for flavours, My signiture cakes are Tropical fantasy. a light banana/pineapple cake with coconut and coconut rum cream filling. or Amerito Orange with filling, The other flavors are carrot (with coconut and pineapple in the mix) with cream cheese filling and frosting, vanella with cream filling or your choice of filling, Chocolate with cholcolate filling and and obtion of raspberry filling (can) Jamaican traditional rum/fruit (raisen, cherries prune etc) or vanella rum with rum cream filling, strawberry, lemon etc or your creations

      I'm going with a vanilla rum icing with a chocolate cake with chocolate filling. We asked first if those flavors would be good together and she suggested some ideas but said that those flavors would work well together.

      She takes her deposit 30 days before the wedding (50% deposit).

      I'm so happy to get to check something off my to-do list for the wedding.

      Now on to flowers---I'm soooo picky! I'm sure I'm driving them (Rose at floralfantasiesjamaica.com) crazy with all my questions.

      Is anyone doing welcome baskets for the Guests? I was thinking of doing it--if it's in my budget. They aren't that expensive on floralfantasiesjamaica.com's website.

        Claudette-

        Only certain rooms allow a rool away bed. Marion told me that the rooms and deluxe rooms -no rollaway, but all the others you can have 1 for $75 per night plus 18.25%.

          Big3n09-congrats...I know you must be so relieved to have the place set. And it sounds like the dress shopping is going great...I am so far behind-I just sent an email to the tranportation guy about an hour ago. (as well as Majorie!)

          Cake-I was thinking mango and amaretto-I have never tried that combo-I needed something to think about while running this morning-so cake flavors was it! Why do you girls think? Does that sound too sweet?

            mmm, that sounds delicious--I love mango! You could still go to a local bakery and ask for those flavors just to make sure you do like the flavor together. It probably won't be the exact same as what is made in Jamaica but you should be able to get a general idea if you like it.

            I haven't even thought of dress shopping yet. I've casually looked but I've not even thought of trying the dresses on.

              Claudette- I never did call Randy out. My parents are newly retired so they are traveling all around right now. They have been in Spain for 2 weeks and get back tomorrow, so I will be telling them about all of the drama then. I will leave it up to my dad to decide if he wants to bring it up with Randy or not. My dad is not one to argue over a hundred dollars or anything small like that, so I will have to convince him that it's about the principal of it all, not the $$. I will def post pictures and everything when they get back...I know they are going to MDC the last week in March, not sure the exact dates. I'm glad everyone is having a better time with every aspect of the wedding planning!
              WE WERE SO BLESSED TO HAVE A PERFECT WEDDING WEEKEND FROM START TO FINISH!

                Here's a link to the pictures we took of the resort while we were there (2/5-2/12) Shutterfly | View share. It includes a picture of the gym too. For my cakes, I did the top two layers tropical fantasy and the bottom layer carrot cake. The grooms cake was chocolate. The carrot cake and tropical fantasy is delicious, but the chocolate cake had some typ of filling in it and I didn't like it. It wasn't just a plain chocolate cake, but some of my guests loved it. I guess it just depends on your preference, but I didn't get a chance to sample anything! If you like carrot cake...you can't go wrong with that one!

                    Hey Sparkles,

                    I can totally understand that! I'll be very excited to see the Cliffs' progress in late March! Keep us posted!

                      Thanks Mastistyle! That's strange that only certain rooms allow that - when I asked Miriam she did not mention any limitation on roll away beds or a charge with them! It's silly since there is no option for two friends to share, other than to share a bed! Again, my girlfriends are fine with it, but my FI's friends will most likely get their own separate rooms, which will fill up the rooms rather quickly!
