Llike others have said dont worry and try to put on a happy face. You and some amazing people are going to Jamaica for the wedding of your dreams...dont let anyone take that away from you!!! :)

 

 

We got our album yesterday from our photographers...just a trial before they print it so I thought I would share

      The rates have decreased drastically.  Are they honoring these rates now or only for weddings in 2012?

        It's my understanding that these rates are only for weddings in 2012, however, they will adjust the minister fees from $400 to $200 in 2011.

        Im under that impression as well, the packages prices are only for 2012 brides, but the minister fees will be decreased.
