      Lol, I thought I was the only one that did this! Glad to know I'm not alone.

        Mo - All I can say is WOW and Congrats! It sounds like you're on the ball. Thanks for sharing so much of your information.

        Note about Dunn's River Falls: You may want to include a note in your booklet that you are sending out about bringing water shoes (or whatever you call them) for the falls. As they are VERY slippery and the shoes cost way more $ to rent when you get there (not to mention they are used by thousands of people and just "rinsed/dipped" in water instead of actually being cleaned), instead of buying them beforehand. I think I bought mine at Taret for like $3 or so.

          Mo.. Are you providing transportation with Lee's Travel to Dunn's River Falls too? If so, what price were you quoted for that?

            This may sound like a stupid question but what is a sand ceremony? It sounds romantic....

                Thanks Heidi. I love that idea!! I wonder if it would be a problem bringing the sand to Jamaica and then home? I like the one where you pour it out of the shells.

                  OMG I feel so BEHINDDDDDDDDDDD!!!! LOL I havent even gotten dresses for my daughters that are my bridesmaids yet. I actually just want to show up and have everything done for me. Like I said before we have been together for over 8 years so it feels like we are married all ready and this is just a "formality". We thought we would have about 40-50 guests but half of the family will not go because they think we should be married here in a church and not on a beach in Jamaica.Like living together for the last 8 years wasnt a big enough sin in there eyes....lol I did book the disco and steeldrums but I decided to cancel the disco so we could just go to the beach party after dinner. To all the new brides here WELCOME. By the way 1 month on my ticker!!!!!! OH MY!!!Gotta get moving with my plans...

                      Don't worry, you definitely don't need to go overboard and do everything we talk about. Some of us are just crazy planners and others just go with what's offered at the RIU and their weddings are beautiful. Just decide what is most important to you (flowers, photographer, etc) and focus on that, the rest will fall into place. Tell us what you're thinking for your wedding and we'll help get you started.
