so here is my wedding band. it's call an embraceable. I have a 1 ct solitaire and it looks FANTASTIC!!! the bling is gorgeous!! like I said, the lady in the store nailed it!! I absolutely love it.  I also got brave and posted my dress. sorry it's not a good pic but I love it. I got tears with this one. I got it in a cream colour with flip flops to match!!

 

keriltz - your pics are beautiful!  thanks for the recommendation of Merrick's work - that's who we're using too. but we have him for the whole day right from when the girls are getting dressed and we have invited him to have dinner with us as well. the poor man has to eat, especially since I know I'm going to work him very hard for pics. I want tons!!  lol  and thanks for the good word on The Grill. that's where our dinner is too so it's good to know the food is good.

 

I'm glad Chandlyn came through with decorations. I'm not taking any either so I hope it looks nice. we only have our sand ceremony stuff but I'm taking the resort's chair ties. where did you do your first dance?

Your wedding dress is beautiful!! And I love your wedding band.  I to have a solitaire and wish I could have found something like this.  I instead just went with one diamond band for now and hope to get another one later on down the road.

      I never brought anything for decorations but Chadlyn put some stuff up on the gazebo which was nice, i ordered my flowers from Jan's, they weren't exactly what i ordered but close enough and they missed giving me a boquet and gave us 4 extra boutineer's and didn't give me the wrist crosages for the mom's as i ordered also they never got delivered until 10 minutes after my wedding ceremony was supposed to start - So not sure if i would recommend them.  The webcasting only worked for some people and the guy was supposed to give us a copy of it which he promised and never delivered.  The photographer Merrick Cousley was AMAZING!!!!!!!  I would recommend him highly!  We had dinner at the Grill and it was soooo good! The resort is beautiful!  I can't complain about anything, there were minor glitches i guess but i'm pretty easy going so nothing bothered me.  As they say in Jamaica there are no problem's mon only small situations!! haha  We went on some tours and through a few different people and the best was knowjamaica.com, i would suggest everyone to check them out and book with them, every other one we used only seemed to be interested in money and didn't ever seem like you paid enough and kept saying that we needed to tip big - Very annoying! So avoid and book with knowjamaica.  Ask anything you ladies want!

            acw271011-  Love your dress and your ring!  I looked at that one and ended up getting one very similar but it doesn't have the notch in the middle, it just goes straight across. Great choice!
