This would help me so much as I'd like to give people a ball park of what it would cost to join us (nearly everyone lives in CT and would be flying out of NY). Did you negotiate through a TA? If I end up using one I would love for them to be already familiar with MDC, so any recommendations would be quite helpful. I've sent an inquiry to the TAs here and have yet to hear back so I'm poking around on my own in the mean time.

Thanks in advance!

 

I'm getting married at MDC next November and was quoted $255 for the hotel rooms and $275 for the 4 and 5 bedroom villas.  Bride and groom are also given a complimentary upgrade to the Poinciana villa based on the hotel room rate.  Unfortunately, they double booked on us so they offered us the weekend before or after our initial date at 15% off so prices are down to $216 for the hotel rooms and $233 for the villas.  Their rates are on the site, though, your prices would be different from mine since you'd be getting married in season.

Hi Groundhog -

Thanks for the reply. I had posted that while I waited to here back from MDC. We've since booked our wedding and can't wait! When are you getting married?

I was wondering if anyone has used the DJ that Kerry recommends - Sound Illusion Entertainment.  His rates sound good, but I'm really impressed by the reviews that DJ Vaun is getting on here.  Can anyone tell me what his rates are compared to the other?  Thanks  :)

DJ Vaun is actually slightly cheaper than Sound Illusion. I have a site visit scheduled for a week from Friday and plan to meet with them both to talk about what we'd like for our rehearsal dinner. I'll keep you posted!

Hi Ladies!

 

I just found this site and spent my night reading the entire thread.  GREAT INSIGHT!!!!  I will be getting married at MDC on April 8.  I booked it at the last minute (that's really the only date they had left in the spring) and I am sooooooooo happy with my decision.  I sent out boarding pass invitations (http://sparklingeventdesigns.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2010-11-18T07%3A00%3A00-08%3A00&max-results=5).....LOVE THEM!!!!!  Now trying to debate on sending reminder postcards????  

 

For those of you who have already visited, I heard that Jamaica Customs is the WORST!!!!!!  Did anyone have trouble bringing in their dress and pre-purchased wedding items?  I just need to be prepared and interested in knowing if you have any stories/advice to share.  Look forward to chatting with you all!!!!

 

Robin

Congrats on booking at MDC :)  I just got married there and had no problems getting through customs at all.  They just waved me on through.

Hi Robin! Congrats on booking! I find that the hardest part of it all is the wait, lol.

 

Your invites are beautiful! Iâ€d send something after the holidays...I think your postcard idea is perfect.

 

Iâ€ve experienced Jamaica customs a number of times but never as a bride lugging tons of wedding stuff so Iâ€m eager to hear stories as well. How is planning going for you otherwise?

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
