Name: Kay

FI Name:

Wedding Destination: Grand Palladium, Montego Bay, Jamaica

What made you choose this destination? After research and long thought, this was the best choice to have all (ceremony, reception, all inclusive host resort) all under one roof.

Wedding Date: July 31, 2010

What made you choose this date? Like someone else mentioned, we were going to choose our anniversary date August 5th, but in Jamaica, it is near a national holiday, so we moved it to the weekend before.

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? Purple, Guava (orangish pink), and creme

What is something unique about your wedding? My fiance created a beautiful wedding website through wedmedo.com and you can do everything off that site. RVSP especially.

Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding: We have been pretty much doing everything ourselves with family and friends helping.

 

I have a question for you ladies. What time are you having your wedding?

My ceremony is at 2pm. Since July is pretty hot everywhere, we want a nice cool reception. Are you ladies doing the same.

Our ceremony has been scheduled for 2pm but I'm trying to get a little later time! It will be so hot! If not...no biggie! With photos, champagne and all that...I'm sure we'll be ready for some AC during our reception! Some guests may even go for a dip in between. We've booked to have our reception at one of the indoor restaurants.

Update to my done list:
- Ordered and Received Thank You cards through VISTA PRINT
- Bought my shoes - wicked sandals from THE SHOE COMPANY
- Got clutches/make-up bags for my bridesmaids and MOH
- Ordered Personalized Two Tone Beach Bags
- Ordered Personalized Insulated Mugs
- Created Hats for our Dad's through VISTA PRINT

How's everyone else doing with the planning?

Classadiva: How exciting that you are doing a site visit! I wanted to do one also but FI and I decided against it. We're taking our chances since we ( and most of our guests) have never been to Aruba.

 

I'm still in the holiday mood and haven't really done much recently. There are six months left to go so I need to get busy again because July will be here before we all know it!

Yes...I am. The wedding ceremony will be at 4pm and the reception at 6:30pm....I figured that this would be a good time and not too hot.

Sheree...you will be fine...you can't go wrong with Aruba!!! Such a beautiful place, gorgeous beaches and IMHO THE best food in the Caribbean.

Yes...it's time to get busy...I'm having a mini-panic attack...it's all coming up so fast!!

Our ceremony starts at 6pm. Cocktail hour and reception 7-10:30. Everything is going to be outside so I sure hope it's not too hot at that time in evening.

Name: Danielle

 

FI Name: Ty

Wedding Destination: Azul Sensatori Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico

What made you choose this destination? Was originally looking at St. Thomas but the resort I wanted was too pricey so I decided to change locations. The TA sent pics of the resort and we liked the pics.

 

Wedding Date: July 31, 2010

 

What made you choose this date? We wanted a date in the summer. We preferred August but my family reunion is the 2nd Sunday in Aug and kids go back to school soon after that so we picked the last Saturday in July which happened to be the 31st.

 

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? Pink, Silver and White

 

What is something unique about your wedding? Uhmmm.....think I'm gonna have to come back to this one!
