        I am in Ottawa, Ontario and you? Wow so nice to see so many Ontarians here..LOL...

        As for my day, hmmm I was a 3 dress bride but finally on the third one, it was discontinued so I contacted the designer directly to have them re-make it in my size...It's very beachy and thin, I will post pics soon so you can see it..

        As for my feet, I have my barefoot sandals already for months~

        My colours aren't really determined, I love teal (monogram) but also love bright pinks and orange, so decided because we are getting married in Jamaica, I would not have been able to bring my flowers home, so decided to make silk ones to bring so I knew exactly what they would look like...I bought the material required last week and hope to start that today, but I think I will do something white mixed with a bright pink..Still have not decided completely~

        I also will be making my veil and have all the material here to start also this weekend..I want a cathedral length for pictures~

        I made most of my jewelry already and they are very "shell like" which has that beachy feel to it~

        As for pics, we have hired a photographer in Jamaica for a 10 hour shoot to do a few hours on the day of the wedding, and then do a 7 hour shoot the next day to include a trash the dress event..Our pictures were really important to me, seeing as I will not have any family there, so I wanted to make sure they would see the day's events~

        What about everyone else?

          I thoroughly researched both Ocho Rios and Negril (Swept Away) and both are amazing resorts..Both All Inclusives offer more than a couple could need..I hear the difference between the two is that there is more to do (excursions etc.) at Ocho Rios and Swept Away is more quiet..You can not go wrong with a Couples Resort..They have thousands of yearly return customers due to their high customer service and food, apparently they really treat their customers like Queens and Kings and its for that reason that people return year after year...

          Although it was more expensive than other AI's, I wanted the security of not worrying about my food and drinks, it gives me comfort to know that I can just go and relax..Also at Ocho Rios, I think there is also a nudist beach close by? not sure though!!

          I think you have made a wonderful decison to honeymoon there, I can't wait to hear of it when you return..Just go onto their forum and you will see how many people LOVE both resorts and go back year after year Jamaica Resorts Reviews: Couples Resorts - All-Inclusive Resorts: Jamaican: Message Board

          What made you decide Couples Ocho Rios AI?

              Welcome Trista!!! I just read your last post on everything that your DIY's! You must post pics (if you haven't noticed yet, we all love viewing pics!)

              And I love teal. It really pops. I'm currently rethinking my colors and adding teal instead of lime, but can't decided yet.

                    Oooh, I love your monogram! Teal would work too but I really like the color it is now...
