    Forgive me if I am being repetitive…I am catching up on the board…

    Congrats to all Nov 2009 brides!

    I am getting married in Negril Jamaica November 20, 2009 at Moon Dance Cliffs…

    I am so far behind, especially when I read all of your posts…

    I have
    1.Set a date
    2.Reserved the place

    Yikes!
    We aren’t having a bridal party-so no BM of GM. I know what I am wearing but will need to make some adjustments). But I need to get something for the reception. I haven’t done STD, a website, picked a photographer, florist, etc… I was just happy to get a date set and a place picked!

    Beachbride-we are date twins!
    Koolata-where are you getting married?
    Jamaicabride09-are you getting all of your vendors through the resort?

      Yes, we are getting our DJ and Photographer through the resort. Sandals does not allow outside vendors. Howver, I ordered my flowers from Angels Accents and I am bringing them down.

      Don't worry...it will all come together. We have been enagaged for a year so I have had extra time to work on things.

      Happy Planning!

        I have a wedding Memorial Day AND Labor Day weekend this year and I've yet to complain. Maybe I will start! :)
        WOW I can't believe even you are hearing about it! I guess it's true, you can't make everyone happy. And it's very true, ppl choose times around holidays often. Maybe I should switch min to Christmas and see how they like it... haha :)

          Hey ladies.... I'm wondering if you have started to plan out your wedding day timeline? I have a time line in mind but I'm starting to have second thoughts about it. Keeping in mind that the sun sets at about 5:45pm what does your timeline look like?

Oh well! :) Do you have a bunch of ppl confirmed already? I'm just in the beginning stages (I just got my confirmation the other day)... I feel so behind!
            yes more than expected! 30 people have booked their flight and hotel already...we were expecting about 75 total but I have a feeling it may be more like 100 people....I hope not any more than that!!

              saltocoach - I'm having an issue right now with my times because we are getting married in a Catholic Church and the only time they have available is 1:30PM! eekk so we don't know what to do - we want the reception at night so I guess we will just have to have a break in between...fi doesn't think it is a big deal but I just wish they had a 4pm available to make my life easier!

              I think for beach in Cabo I would do about 5:00? I guess it depends how long you want your ceremony to be.

                    I have my ceremony planned to start at 4:00pm in Cabo, with Cocktail hour from 4:30-5:30 and we will be taking photos at this time with our photgrapher. He suggested starting the ceremony aty 4 or 4:30 for the best photographs.

                      I'm on the other side of Mexico, but we're doing a 4pm ceremony (sunset is at 5:08pm - thank goodness for the internet!). I guess it also depends on how you want to do photos. I'm planning to do bride/bridesmaid and groom/groomsman photos before the ceremony and save all the "big group" photos until afterward (which gives us about an hour or so, but I'm not doing a ton of "family" photos). Our cocktail hour will be from 4:45 to 6 with dinner at 6pm, reception til 10.
