Welcome to the site!  It's so awesome to have another January bride :)  What date is your ceremony? Mine's the 18th at 4pm.  I was going nuts too about not knowing the details in advance!  All I did though was send in my preferences (i.e. restaurant, menu, etc) to Chandlyn so that it was noted on my file and I guess I'll just keep my fingers crossed until the big day.  Are you renting the gazebo for evening dancing?

I have my date and time booked and Chandlyn said our reception is booked although we have no idea at what restaurant  or any details on that. We're bringing our own photographer down and doing our own (fake) flowers and bringing them down too. We've also asked my fiance's older brother to become ordained and marry us down there - he has been in touch with Chandlyn and all she said was that was fine and that the resort "minister" would "work with him"...not sure what that means...I'm sure it will be great once we get down there and everything will be taken care of but it's driving me nuts not knowing all of the details! lol :) Any tips or advice etc would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!

well we have most of the details worked out. we're getting married here at home now on Oct 22nd then leaving for GBPJ on Nov 12th as originally planned and keeping our original ceremony date of Nov 17th.  even though it isn't what we wanted, we're still going to get our "ceremony" in Jamaica and a "wedding" on the beach and pictures!

 

I got a dress for Jamaica - very simple, no train, strapless, very very plain, but I think it will work fine since its just the 2 of us and it has a couple of little sparkles on it so should be good with pictures.  plus I won't need any help getting into it!!! lol

 

all the things I was working on for Jamaica are sending me messages saying 120 days to go!!  but when I switched the date now they say 95 days to go!!  makes it closer now!!

 

I just want to say thanks to the ladies here. you guys gave me a boost when I really was feeling pretty low. this will hurt for a long time as far as family members go, but we're making the best of it and I still can't wait to get to Jamaica!

Hey Ashley 490!

 

Nice to "meet" you! We're also getting married on January 18 - but at 2pm! I have emailed Chandlyn about the gazeebo for between our reception (which is at 6pm) and the disco club that I believe opens at 11pm...I haven't heard back from her tho yet...SORRY!!!! Were you wanting it too? :S  If you've already talked to her about it tho, I'd assume you get first dibs etc.

 

How neat to be able to talk to you on here and both be getting married the same day at the same place just hours apart! Small world!

 

I'd love to talk more with you if you want to private message?! Let me know!

Hey ladies!! our photographer from home just told us that she is no longer able to come to the wedding and do the pictures, so i freaked out a little then came on here again and saw that a few of you are using Merrick cousley!! I checked out his website and love his work and contacted him. He has our date available so i was just wondering what package some of you went with and if you are doing a TTD as well!! thanks ladies! ...almost 5 months to go!

Erin

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
