    That's good. You can save money on the alterations. I bought my dress 6 months ago so hopefully I still like it and it still fits.

      I'm going to hem it for my heels that I bought for the reception.
      Haven't quite figured out what I'm gonna do for the beach yet...

        I had my dress mad to a custom length because of the lace. Too short for heals but I didn't want to be tripping on it while walking along the san in bare feet.

        We're having a Canadian reception in February too and I'm thinking about hemming my dress to a cocktail length for that. Is anyone else altering their dresses for a second reception?

          Hey Megan-

          I know Yamille had a whole thread on this, but I cant find it now. So I will try to recap, So her seastress gave her a hell of a time about hemming it to her heels she wanted to wear at the reception (went barefoot at ceremony). Anyways she went against what the seamstress said and hemmed it to her heels and said it was fine she did not have touble walking and not tripping over her dress in the front as the seamstress had worried about.

            I am getting married Nov 9 2009 in Montego Bay!!! Just sent my invitations out the other day with NOO save the date as we just booked it YIKES!!! I have tons of questions as this island wedding is really throwing me for a loop?? It seems more difficult to plan for an away wedding! Are you ladies making all your center pieces at home then packing them with you? What are you guys doing for a photographer? They all seem soooo expensive. Any advice will help.

              It seems that everyone almost has everything done! Great job. Now, I wonder, how many of you are procrastinating about writing vows ? I know I am! I also have to do programs and menu cards and the like. I wish I could just hire someone to do it for me! I really suck at things like that....

                Welcome Love 3.You should check out the Jamaica brides threads they'll have more info on the actual photographers that you could use. I am however making my own centerpieces and mailing them (along with a bunch of other stuff) to my wc a month before the wedding. I don't know what I'm actually doing for centerpieces but I know I'm not doing flowers. I was in Pier 1 yesterday looking for ideas bc they were having a big sale (and I love love love that place) but nothing really jumped out at me.

                I am so lost on what I'm doing for programs and menu cards. I was gonna do the fan programs with the refresher fans from OTC (that I've already purchased). But now I'm thinking I will decorate those fans to use them as favors and then do reg programs bc I have alotta info I want to add that won't really fit on the small piece of paper I'd have to use for the fans.

                  That's where I purchased my invitations. They do have a great selection. I like the menu cards you selected.

                    What color are your tablecloths? Are you going with white?

                      Where did you rent your linens from?
