    I can not do my own hair. No way no how. I suck at it!

    I am using the salon the Thursday before for my boudoir shot but it wont be the same hair do. Blah now Im freaking out!?!

    How long did it take you and you and your bridesmaids to get their hair done?

      I'm thinking that I will book our wedding for Beaches Negril in April/May 2011. I was originally thinking that I didn't want to get married at a large all-inclusive, but I've realized that it should be the best option for our guests and for coordinating/satisfying a group. I'm getting really excited now, but I have a long time to wait!

      I talk with TA Jennifer next week to set our plans in place and then will get things rolling with save the dates for our guests. Does anyone have any cautions against the resort before I make the commitment? I have attended a wedding at Sandals Negril, and it was really fun. If you have already had your wedding there, or are farther in planning than me, have you had second thoughts and wish you did/were doing it elsewhere?

        If youve got money to spend on flowers the reception and extras then Id say go for it... 10k is a safe amount to budget for it (or if you are ok to go light on the organized festivities)... also it is advantageous to book at least 10 rooms for 4 nights to get the extras (rehearsal dinner, cake, linens etc etc)... The rooms per guest are more than 250pp per night all inclusive so I think MAYBE if I could do it again I would try for somewhere cheaper, although I have no doubt that it will be amazing and that peace of mind is really priceless.

          I went over the $10000 budget with photographer, the hotel stay for 10 nights and my dress.

            I agree, our hotel stay was quite a bit.... but just for the reception (Martha flowers etc) I bet you could do 10.

              I was just thinking of going with the Carefree Wedding package to keep the costs lower than what I would spend at home on a wedding and bringing some simple centerpieces with me - maybe doing parasols for the bridesmaids. Hopefully it will turn out pretty without spending a fortune. I love flowers, but I just can't justify spending the money on the Martha Stewart packages when the reason I'm doing the DW is for less $ (and also less hassle). If I do add extras, it will probably be on musicians or on extras for the guests (OOT bags or an excursion or something). Did anyone have any trouble using their own centerpieces at the resort?

                Sweetiecat- no worries! I am doing the beautiful beginnings package (aka care free) and I have known people to do the same and everything worked out just perfect! Def do not fret! I am bringing my own flowers done by a seller on etsy. They are clay and beautiful. We are doing the free reception and then all going to eat and then out to a show or bars for the rest of the evening and its all going to be fantastic!

                  Your flowers sound really cool! I think I'm doing the basic package to. I hope I can add some more flowers to it.

                    The flowers through beaches and the islands are very pricey!!! And you can not leave the island with them!

                      Guess I had my heart set on real flowers but am now considering other options.
