    Dutchie800, we will be counting on you for any changes since we are getting married two months after you.  My date is May 24, 2012 and ImaJoseph is May 25, 2012 (I think). I really hope brides keep posting pictures, input and reviews on here because we are so far away still. I feel bad sometimes on here because I don't really have much to offer other brides on here because they are getting married before me. it is hard to contribute when everyone has said or did it before you. I wanted to get married in early 2012 like Jan or March but I thought my cousins were coming and they are still in college so I booked for May thinking that they would come. They ended up backing out two weeks ago and instead of having 16 guests plus bride and groom ; we now have 14 guests. I should have just booked when I wanted to because we have been engaged since September 2010.  Some days I think we should have just eloped but I'm happy with the guests that are coming and really all that matters is that we finally get married.

      It's nice to see so many GBPJ brides here! Thank you so much for all your helpful info. My fiance and I just confirmed out date with the resort  - June 2, 2012 - and can't wait to see how everything unfolds! This has been such a useful thread and has helped us decide on the location and our photographer!!! I look forward to what we can learn going forward!!!!

       

      If anyone has any suggestions or things we should watch out for please let me know!!!

       

      Also does anyone know if the minister fees are included in the price of the packages ? I've heard rumours that this may be an extra cost upon arrival.

       

      Thanks

        Hey Ashley490, 

         

        We are booking Stacey Clarke for our photographer, she has been amazing so far and the reviews about her are outstanding!!! Her packages are also the most reasonable I have seen! Have you booked a photographer, if so who?

         

        Also thanks for the minister fee info!!

          Thanks Jaykay,

           

          You were right---email seems to be the only way to get in contact with them.....Finally got confirmed for Oct 14th, really wanted the 15th but that's ok.

            I've heard a few people who have booked Stacey Clarke and are happy with her work.  We've booked Paula and Damian from Sungold Photography.  I was really impressed with their portfolio and the range of equipment they bring with them, so even though they are more expensive I'm sure it'll be worth it.

              Hey Ladies,

              Thanks for the suggestions! I emailed stacy clark and unfortunately she does not do videography anymore but she gave me a website for someone who does.  http://rgweddingsii.com/ In case anyone else is looking for a videographer!  Has anyone used this company??

               

              I was going to start making my wedding programs does anyone have a template or outline for how they run the ceremony.  I am not sure what to put into the program or what order lol. 

               

              thanks

                I'm getting kind of worried, there's been some crappy reviews lately on tripadvisor.com

                  As a self proclaimed travel snob, it does bother you a little bit to read bad reviews but also take into account how many people don't post reviews. Also, look at the review numbers.. Out of almost 2100 reviews, 1400 of them were good. Our wedding is 44 days away so I will make sure I write a review and come back and tell everyone how it is. I hope this makes you feel a little better :)
