Jamaica Bride!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My name is Michelle and my fiance and I are planning our wedding in Jamaica. We've only been engaged for a few days but are hoping to marrying in early April. The whole idea of planning a wedding abroad is a daunting one so any words of advice would be welcomed. We're hoping to be close to Ocho Rios. Any ideas for a venue with good service and food? Also, how long does it take to get a marriage licencehuh.gif?

Many thanks!

Michelle

A few days?? Wow, Congrats! You must still be on cloud 9!!!

 

It is a daunting task, for sure. I was very overwhelmed at first but feel much better now that we have chosen a resort and averything is booked.

 

My advice - get a Blackberry if you dont already have one! LOL

So much planning and coorisponding is done though email and my blackberry has been my lifesaver!

Congratulations and welcome to the forum Michelle! It can seriously be overwhelming when you decide to plan a DW overseas but everyone on this forum is so helpful and it really helps take a lot of the stress away. Happy planning!

welcome - we ar egetting married at the Grand Lido Negril in 26 days! can't wait - I think it's been such a great experience - just do your research and make the best choice based on an educated decision and you will be fine.

I would advise make a list of the things that you would love for the resort to include for you and your guests and then go to trip advisor and read up on some possibilities

SO great to see another Jamaica Bride...and I am also getting married in beautiful Ocho Rios! We've decided on the all-inclusive Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Resort and Spa as the location that will be the best fit for us, as well as our guests -- please feel free to contact me with any questions, and I'll do my best to be of assistance.

Aside from that, you're gonna LOVE being a part of this amazing forum!!!

 

My best advice as you start down the road to your wedding day would be just to take your time and do lots of research before you book or buy anything (attire, flowers, you name it!) and make sure it's all that you've envisioned for your BIG DAY!

 

And that's where this phenomenal site comes in: BDW has proven to be invaluable in my planning, and it's comforting to know that there are other brides and grooms out there experiencing the same highs and lows during their planning process -- a friend is always just on the other side of your computer screen!

 

CONGRATULATIONS and Welcome to BDW...it's a wedding-planning heaven!
