YAY! I'm now officially excited- I'll be on the lookout for your location update :)
Just to let you know- the reason we chose Jamaica is because there is no blood test required and we don't need to be there 3+ days in advance (like mexico) We are going to arrive a few days early in Jamaica, but legally you only have to be there 48 hours in advance

Don't know if that helps, but I tried. congratulations.
There are plenty of options off of the beach- I don't want a "barefood" sandy wedding on the beach, so I am getting married in a Gazebo overlooking the beach. The resort where I'm staying also has a gazebo and wedding location that is set in the "gardens" of the resort. From what I hear, the gardens of Sandals Grand Ocho Rios has a hawaii essence to them...

Hi there,

 

We are getting married Feb 2010 at the Grand Palladium Resort, Puerto Adventuras. We are just waiting on pricing for whether to stay at the Katenah or White Sands section. We are excited for the beach & ocean to play at as well as the only time to have all our family & friends on a wicked vacation all together!!

The Grand Palladium seems to be the best for our group, adults & a few kids. There will be around 30 of us for sure, most going for 2 weeks.

 

Does anyone know about booking your own sail boat or catameran for the wedding guests/party?

Hi 2010 Brides,

 

Glad to see this thread was started!! Im in the early planning stages also, just waiting on pricing. I didnt know you dont have to get blood tests done in Jamaica...now an option. I do still have my heart set on Los Cabos but will stay open minded for the best possible location for the best price. Im a Canadian bride, we are looking to get married in Feb/March 2010. Any advice would be amazing.

 

So far, ive started my wedding website, STD's are out (with year only...lol) and guess list is made. I've almost narrowed down a dress...i will probably decide on one by the end of the month. Bachelorette party is booked. Now waiting for pricing!!

 

Let me know if you guys have finished anything else and when you get your pricing!

 

Shelly

Thanks for the information its all good to know! I was giving Mexico some thought because all the pictures I have seen from other brides are beautiful. The location of majority of the shots were beautiful! But I understand the blood test issue! I also saw another bride on here who had an off the beach gazebo wedding in Mexico and it was exactly what I want, but the resort wasnt an AI and I think Id rather do an AI resort for my guest!

Hey everyone! I'm having a wedding in at Dreams Cancun in June 2010! It's absolutely beautiful there. I stayed there two years ago and when I went back to Cancun in December I stayed at Riu, and ended up making my fiance walk with me to look at Dreams like everyday! How is everyone doing? I'm already a wreck and no one is taking me seriously because they're all like "you have so much time!" Am I the only crazy one here?

Hi there Michelle!
You are DEFINITELY not the only crazy one... In fact, you're not crazy at all I don't think!! Who'd have known a destination wedding could be stressful? I am just trying to pick our resort currently and it's hard!!! My FI are in love with the Barcelo Maya Palace, but I'm starting to think it might be too pricy for our guests... sad.gif It's such a let down and it's hard for us to love any other resort as much as that one.... sigh.. guess we'll just have to see what happens.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
