The ceremony was scheduled for 4 pm but I was 1 hour late and it was absolutely "No Problem". Chandlyn did not do much, which I had expected beforehand. It is Jamaica after all, everyone is more laid back there.

      I was able to get everyone together for either breakfast or dinner in 2 separate events. I reserved a section of the buffet restaurant the night before the wedding for the rehearsal dinner, which quite a few guests attended and if they did not attend this event they met with us the day after the wedding for breakfast.
      We also took the bridesmaids and groomsmen out the day after the wedding for a group event to Dunns River Falls and then to an off site jerk hut.

        Does anyone know the menu for the Plantation reception dinner, whenever I search for anything it just goes to a blank screen. Thanks for your help.

                  Thank you for the menu info. Another question I have is, are there waiters to serve you it's not buffet at the Plantation is it? Thanks again for your help, I'm so glad I found this website or I'd be lost!
