I booked my date with Chandlyn as soon as I picked it. I booked it in May 2012 for July 1, 2013.  It doesn't hurt to book it early.

 

I have not chosen any of my package details or any extras yet because it is all dependent on how many people are coming. I have given people an RSVP date of End of November 2012 - that gives us plenty of time,I would think, to pick a package and finalize all the details. Seems like everytime I email Chandlyn I get confused about something else.I might just opt to call her when I really get into planning.

 

I haven't started looking for a dress or anything yet, but in the fall there are lots of bridal shows coming up and I will start going to those and getting inspired. We cant decide what my groom Mike should wear, we will probably go with a khaki/linen paints, white shirt and vest look as well. I think it would be super hot to wear a traditional suit.

 

SarahJ -Yes I kinda want a fun entrance, especially since we are probably going to have a good number of people coming ( 50+) and we will close down one of the restaurants. I want to try to add a few personal touches to the day if I can. Nothing to over the top but we have a few ideas.

No Mic is provided, no speakers provided and not sure about the DJ we didn't have them there. Just an FYI tell guests to wear bug spray in Dolce VIta as there are tons of gnats/mosquitos. You don't notice while dinner is going but after you leave they seem to attack. Also watch out for the IPOD dock if you choose to bring one. We brought one with us for the same intent gave to Donnalee as requested the day prior and somehow it went "missing". Not sure how that happened as they had an entire suitcase filled with stuff. Also as an FYI take any decorations / cake with you when you leave the restaurant. They do not offer to give anything back nor will they help you bring things to your room. The wedding coordinators do their jobs well but you can never find them when needed and are not present at all during dinner.

Me and my fiance are opting to do a private reception, because we are expecting close to 50 people and think it would be worth it.

The price I was told includes the Restaurant ( Dolce Vita)for 4 hours and the DJ for 2 hours.

Does anyone know if they will set up a microphone for speeches and if the DJ will be there for the entrances? Me and my fiance and our bridal party want to enter to specific music! haha

If the DJ only shows up later then I will need to bring some sort of IPOD dock or something for the music.

Thanks

 We never took our decorations or cake with us when we left the restraunt.  We picked up our wedding decorations the next day and everything was there.  They also put the remainder of our cake in our room and we never asked.

Hi exquitite02,

 

First off, congratulations on your special day....terrific pictures!!  I was curious where you got your starfish for the chairs from??  I have been searching everywhere and have had no luck.  I recently started searching for them online but am nervous to order from some of the sites.

Past Brides -  how long did it take you to get your marriage certificate in the mail? I have heard of some people getting married in the states before they go and writing in the date they got married on their certificate? I don't know if you can do that or if it is legal...but anyway they did that because they were scared their married wouldn't be legal in the states or they wouldn't get their marriage certificate back in time. I just wanted to know! Thanks! ;-)

It took a little over two months to receive our marriage certificate. 

 

If you get legally married in the states then you can't get legally married in Jamaica and vice versa.

Hello Destination Brides,

I have purchased my Totes for the Welcome bags, and have no idea where to start in terms of decorating them. Iron on transfers won't work...and I was thinking of adding a pretty tag and perhaps a pretty flower..!  Then I thought of it may end up coming off during the packing and traveling.! Here is a picture...ideas welcomed...!

Hey Cdnbridelinzy,

I found them early summer in a random dollar store near where I work in Toronto. I've decided to do fabric paint with a stencil design my BFF is working on for me.

 I still haven't gotten mine, but Donnalee emailed me last week to confirm my mailing address and has assured me it's on the way.  I was married at the end of May!  SLOW!!!

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hi, I am getting married after one year. I have tons of planning to do and very little time. Planning a wedding can be difficult especially when there is less time. I have to do a lot of things on my own and at the same time work overtime to earn more money. Recently when I was hanging out with my close friends, I noticed that my friend who had crooked teeth like mine had perfect teeth now. I was surprised to see that I asked her that what did you do for a sudden change. She said that she tried Invisalign braces and had a change with her smile within a short time. I told about this to my bf and he also told me to give a try for it. I took an appointment with a dentist in Aurora. I don't know whether there will be a  change within a short time. What can you say on this? Am I taken a good decision?
    • Hi, I'm in a relationship with a guy who is in my college. He is planning to migrate from our area and he wants to marry me before he leaves. He is well planned for our marriage. He accompanied me for all the wedding shopping and was supporting me a lot. But there was an unexpected accident and I fell down hitting the floor. I was taken to the nearby clinic for getting the emergency dental care  from a clinic in Toronto. My front canine was lost after the accident and I think I need to get dentures before my wedding. Or according to your opinion what can be done other than dentures?
