So closer to your wedding day (usually 2 weeks out) you can lock down a certain restaurant. From what I've been told the Grill and Italian Restaurant are both great so you will have nothing to worry about.

    You should have locked down a time though..

          Glad your having a great day and that everything is working out!!!! Marcia is one of my top picks, I am just trying to narrow it down now. What package are you going with? Are you doing TTD session?

            We will get together for sure! Come check out my wedding when you arrive!

             

            I have had a positive experience with Chandlyn as well. It is sad to hear about the trouble people have been experiencing.

            I'm saddened to hear people's experiences with Chandlyn and Donalee, I have nothing but good to say about them, they have been very helpful.

              I am glad that you are still going to experience a part of your wedding in Jamaica...and it will now be a great honeymoon! I will definately stop by for a drink!

              we are being married at home here on Oct 15th. we finalized it yesterday. after many tears and arguments that I thought would split us up, we've managed a compromise and will have a very small wedding with about 20 people. we can't afford any more than that. but it's ok - we have our best friends and some family that will be with us.

               

              we lost everyone to go Jamaica so we are now 2, once they all found out what the others did, everyone just assumed that it was done and decided not to go.  but the good news is we are still travelling on our date of Nov 12th and will still have our "ceremony" at GBPJ on November 17th only we'll just have a blessing instead. I didn't want to lose our photographer money that was alread paid so we're taking everything they will give us for the "free" wedding and will have pics done just the 2 of us. on the beach like I wanted to have.  it isn't what I hoped for or wanted but it's what I have to take and be satisfied with it and enjoy it. I'm still going to have a dress - not sure which one yet. don't know if I want to take my dress all the way there now for a blessing so I might try and find something a little simpler and lighter and a whole lot cheaper!!  lol

               

              so if anyone is going to be at GBPJ during the week of Nov 12th to Nov 19th, please come and see us at 2:30 pm on Thursday, November 17th. we'll be the only ones at the gazebo so you won't be able to miss us. but it sure would be nice to have somebody else there even if you just say hi and leave. but if you want to join us for a drink you're welcome to do that too.

                Hey GBPJ brides! 

                 

                Just had a quick question for any past brides out there.  I wanna bring parasols for my BMs to carry instead of bouquets, but from everybody's pictures, it looks super windy there in the afternoon.  From your experience, is it possible to carry parasols while walking down the aisle, or would it be too windy to hold them up??

                 

                Thanks!

                  yay!  So happy that it's all starting to work out for your girls!  acw- you and your hubby will have an amazing time and it's so cool that you will get a blessing and those fabulous pics!  fleetmac- you must be so relieved!!  THat is great that they worked it out that you got to keep your date.

                   

                  @futurejohnson... I bought parasols for my girls, moms, and myself to use after the ceremony while taking pics to get out of the sun a bit...and just bc I thought they would be great in pictures!  I will have to let you know how they hold up when I get back but the ones that I bought are pretty strong and I think they can hold up to a good bit of wind (hopefully!).  I bought my white one from save-one-crafts.com and pink and orange ones from lunabazaar.com

                   

                  We leave one week from today!! wohoo!
