Recommended Posts

Congrats! You ordered the same meal as I did! I'm glad it was good, I was a little worried now I'm not! Thank you Ladies for letting us all know about your experiences, it really helps out! And calms the nerves. Can't wait to see more pictures! Angela

Just got back the same time as Ann :D, it was great seeing her down there and getting married very beautiful and touching to say the least.

 

As for my review I will keep it very short and sweet :)

 

 

 

When we arrived we were part of the 3 buses that came in unfortunately we didnt have golden club so we had to wait in the line up.  We arrived around 1:30pm and our rooms werent ready (no biggy as check in in really 3pm) we rec'd our room after we were finished eating lunch along with the 60 people who we came with for our wedding.  Some rooms were a disaster as it had rained really hard that day and some rooms were flooded due to this, again no biggy as they moved those people to another room as fast as they could (jamaica time remember) so after the first day everyone was safe and sound in their rooms phew !!

 

I met with Chandlyn Sunday at 11am and it took all but 30 minutes to plan the wedding she had all my information in file and in order :D she was super sweet and knew exactly what she was doing (as she has done I dont know how many weddings) I also spoke with Donelee another day and she was super sweet too, she wasnt rude to any of us and was very helpful when i asked her for information or with questions.

 

Tuesday October 18 was our wedding :D

and all i can say about it is that it was PERFECT !! i wouldnt change a thing, if i had to pick because of our large group i would have got married at 2pm rather than 3pm but no biggy

 

we hired the steel drum band to play at the ceremony and i had written vows for the minister to read and it was PERFECT :D

 

We also did our cutting of the cake and had it with the champagne, along with our first dance and parents dances as well.  After that we took tons of photos (done by Marcia and Chris Rose)

 

I need to say something about Marcia and Chris !!! THEY WERE AMAZING !! Lovely people and they were sooo much fun i would highly recommend them in a heart beat.  They took well over 1000 pics on the wedding day and probably well over 1000 pics at trash the dress (the next day) both of us felt like superstars :)

 

the reception we had at the Dolce Vita, and it was PERFECT :D no one had complaints about the food and the food came out piping HOT.  We had the minestrone soup, pasta rigatta, chicken and risotto and tiramisu YUMMMMMMY it was my best meal the whole trip (well apart from the jerk chicken hut)

 

after the reception we all went dancing in the disco ! perfect ending :D

 

oh ya and flowers were done by tai Flora, awesome job !!!! they were just what i wanted !!

 

so for all the future GBPJ brides please i repeat please dont sweat as everything will be perfect just the way you imagined it ! just relax and have fun :D

 

Here are some pics from the resort photog, cant wait to get Marcia's pics though :D

Hey fleet mac

 

we didnt get an upgrade persay, as all the rooms are the same other than if you want to be on the top floor etc

we did get robes, slippers and ammenities as well as our beach towels in our room, we also had fruit delivered to our room and champagne (which we took home)

 

I wouldnt spend the money on the upgraded room.

 

I also bought wifi down there, its a bit on and off, cost me $55 for 5 days but i actually got to use it for 6 days.  It didnt work while we were in the bldg because of the cement structure, but worked around the pool area and beach.

Thanks Vicky/Toes in good to know I was curious cause some of my guests go it and some didn't and my travel agent said they would be in a different building then us because they got the upgrade but it looks like it doesn't really matter. Also thanks for posting another pic. I just talked to Marcia yesterday and told her I have some cute shoes for her shoe fetish LOL.

 

Thanks

One last question Vicky

 

Your gown is similar to mine you don't look like your dying of heat in it, was the heat tolerable in your dress. I have been worried about roasting my butt off in mine.  shitfan.gif

    • 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. 
    • 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.
