So closer to your wedding day (usually 2 weeks out) you can lock down a certain restaurant. From what I've been told the Grill and Italian Restaurant are both great so you will have nothing to worry about.

You should have locked down a time though..

We will get together for sure! Come check out my wedding when you arrive!

 

I have had a positive experience with Chandlyn as well. It is sad to hear about the trouble people have been experiencing.

I'm saddened to hear people's experiences with Chandlyn and Donalee, I have nothing but good to say about them, they have been very helpful.

I am glad that you are still going to experience a part of your wedding in Jamaica...and it will now be a great honeymoon! I will definately stop by for a drink!

we are being married at home here on Oct 15th. we finalized it yesterday. after many tears and arguments that I thought would split us up, we've managed a compromise and will have a very small wedding with about 20 people. we can't afford any more than that. but it's ok - we have our best friends and some family that will be with us.

 

we lost everyone to go Jamaica so we are now 2, once they all found out what the others did, everyone just assumed that it was done and decided not to go.  but the good news is we are still travelling on our date of Nov 12th and will still have our "ceremony" at GBPJ on November 17th only we'll just have a blessing instead. I didn't want to lose our photographer money that was alread paid so we're taking everything they will give us for the "free" wedding and will have pics done just the 2 of us. on the beach like I wanted to have.  it isn't what I hoped for or wanted but it's what I have to take and be satisfied with it and enjoy it. I'm still going to have a dress - not sure which one yet. don't know if I want to take my dress all the way there now for a blessing so I might try and find something a little simpler and lighter and a whole lot cheaper!!  lol

 

so if anyone is going to be at GBPJ during the week of Nov 12th to Nov 19th, please come and see us at 2:30 pm on Thursday, November 17th. we'll be the only ones at the gazebo so you won't be able to miss us. but it sure would be nice to have somebody else there even if you just say hi and leave. but if you want to join us for a drink you're welcome to do that too.

Hey GBPJ brides! 

 

Just had a quick question for any past brides out there.  I wanna bring parasols for my BMs to carry instead of bouquets, but from everybody's pictures, it looks super windy there in the afternoon.  From your experience, is it possible to carry parasols while walking down the aisle, or would it be too windy to hold them up??

 

Thanks!

yay!  So happy that it's all starting to work out for your girls!  acw- you and your hubby will have an amazing time and it's so cool that you will get a blessing and those fabulous pics!  fleetmac- you must be so relieved!!  THat is great that they worked it out that you got to keep your date.

 

@futurejohnson... I bought parasols for my girls, moms, and myself to use after the ceremony while taking pics to get out of the sun a bit...and just bc I thought they would be great in pictures!  I will have to let you know how they hold up when I get back but the ones that I bought are pretty strong and I think they can hold up to a good bit of wind (hopefully!).  I bought my white one from save-one-crafts.com and pink and orange ones from lunabazaar.com

 

We leave one week from today!! wohoo!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
