Beaches Negril Bride-to-be Feb 2010

Recommended Posts

Congratulations and happy planning! Birds of Paradise might be good to add into the mix with the roses and orchids. In the Caribbean they have incredible flowers that aren't always found here. When I went to Costa Rica, the Birds of Paradise were huge and vibrant and the Peace lilies were enormous. I'd do a little research on what naturally grows there. I'm sure whatever you decide will be gorgeous!

 

Congrats!

I think thats a great idea!! I asked the resort about what flowers were local (indigenous) and they said pretty much orchids, daises and carnations? (? not what I thought for an answer?)... I love all of the flowers of the Carribean and have had the hardest time coming up with an idea for a tropical looking bouquet. Let me know if you think of any more ideas, Id love to hear (thanks for the tip!)

Hey does anyone know sites that have DW attire for men. lol lol If I leave it up to the FI the groomsmen will come with all different attire. I know for a Nov 2010 bride I am doing so much very earlier, but I hate waiting to do anything at the last minute.
I think that it will be perfect that you are a November bride... we are running into a bit of difficulty since it is now winter, no summer suits are out in the stores!

Hi Ms. Tiff :)

 

OMG, it is getting close!! I am more and more excited every day... its coming soooo fast!! Im not sure if you know or not (or if this is in your plans), but if you book 10 rooms of people, you get a free private rehearsal dinner... its buffet style in a private location... we have requested a rehearsal too- we have a bridal party so thought we better do a run through (I think this is an exception and not the rule)

 

did you know too that you can have your reception on the beach under tentshuh.gif I just learned that the other week. We are getting married in the gazebo at 4pm and then are doing the 3hr reception on the beach in the tents...at SUNSET!!! we also got an AMAZING singer/guitarist to play for the wedding.. my TA told me about him because she heard him last time he was in Jamaica. You have got to listen to him, he sings like an angel... his name is Shyam Moses (and he has a web page and works with Beaches)...

 

Did you get the ok to bring your own flowers? I didnt think they had a problem with that. We are using the free centerpieces that come with booking 10 rooms.... and have purchased flowers for the gazebo which will come to the reception afterwards.

 

I have had much better success with Amber by requesting a phone appointment each time we talk. So I have a new date to know that she will call me. That and most stuff is paid for now, so less to stress about.

 

Good luck on picking your dress! Mine comes in Dec28th and I am looking forward to it- still working on the diet- I think I need to starve this month (and with Christmas so hard!) to feel slim... I do love the corset back that laces up so it is semi-adjustable!!

 

Ali
