    Hi Brides!

    Congratulations on your upcoming destination weddings. I would love any advice from fellow Half Moon brides, and am happy to share my vendors with anyone getting married in Jamaica.

    My photographer is Christopher Dumas (ChristopherDumas.net). Based out of the Boston-area, he loves to travel for weddings, is incredibly professional and talented.

    My wedding band is the Chokey Taylor Reggae Band. I hear they are a real blast, and know more than just reggae.

    My wedding planner is JoAnn Gregoli from Elegant Occasions (elegantoccasions.com). JoAnn has designed some of the most magnificent weddings, and has been in the business for ~20 years, so she has great contacts at most destinations.

    My stationery designer is Abby Bennett (abbyryandesign.com). Though she has a limited roster of wedding invitations, her work is impeccable, her ideas are creative, and she has a gift for turning an inspiration into a masterpiece.

    I found my perfect wedding dress at David's Bridal, but for the Philadelphia bride interested in wearing a designer dress, was very impressed with The Sample Rack at La Fourno at 8th and South. Great selection, quirky but excellent help.

                    Hi Ms325i,

                    I selected the Galina Signature chiffon A-line dress with a beaded bodice and sunburst pleated skirt.
                    David's Bridal - Chiffon soft A-line with fully beaded bodice and sunburst pleated skirt.

                    I thought the pleated skirt added some interest to the dress without it being overdone for a simple beach ceremony. Also - it is super comfortable, and I didn't want to have to make sure I starved myself the day before. I tried on a few dresses where you would have been able to see a cracker in my stomach had I dared to eat one
