    Did anyone have to give Chandlyn a notarized copy of passport and birth certificate?  I sent the documents via fax a couple months ago, but didn't know if we needed to make a copy for her also?  Less than 2 weeks to go!!!

      As far as I know she NEEDS to see and keep the actual copy of the notarized documents...so take them with you:) We got 3 copies done just in case things get lost...

        Just got back from our dream wedding in Jamaica... everything went without any problems.  The wedding co-ordinators (both Chandalyn and Donnalee) were amazing and they went above and beyond what we expected.  They did everything we asked them to do and even more.  The resort is amazing.  really big and beautiful.

         

        Here are some pictures.

         

        If you have any questions just ask!

                Hi, yes I do believe you need to bring notarized copies with you...I scanned all of my documents to her a few months ago and when I double checked last week..she told me that I needed the notarized documents. Hope this helps...and congrats!

                    @cupcake

                     

                    Thanks, we had a blast, everything went as planned (even better).

                     

                    We ate at the Dolce Vita (Italian restaurant).  The food was simply the best.  We had the Chicken, which was divine.  The service in the restaurant was the best.  The waitress even sang for us!!!  The only thing about this restaurant that was bad... They have ROACHES!!!  there are no bugs in the whole resort (except for mosquitos), but there are bugs in the Dolce Vita because it is right on the beach.

                     

                    We did see a few brides have their reception at the main buffett (the Orchard) that way everyone can have what they want to eat (there is quite a huge selection of food).  The Grill is an amazing restaurant.

                     

                    The walk from the Golf cart to the Gazebo isn't too bad unless you have on super high shoes like i did!  The best part of that is it gives you time to reflect and collect your thoughts, and see your groom waiting for you,

                     

                    The minister an amazing person, he gives a great sermon, and I suggest doing the sand ceremony.  Truly a nice touch.

                     

                    We brought an ipod, but at the last moment we changed our minds and just told Chandlyn to let the DJ play wantever he usually does.  We didn't want any problems with the music.  It turned out to be a good decision.  They played the traditional wedding song while i walked down the isle and after the ceremony they played Bob Marley's One Love.

                     

                    I do recommend having any of your decoration ideas on paper (easier for Chandlyn to decorate as wanted).

                     

                    I highly recommend not using the resort's photographers as the only photographers.  They don't use proper cameras (they don't consider lighting or anything).

                     

                    Beach Towels are so hard to get!!! we brought our own.

                     

                    If you need a great taxi driver to take you places let me know, i will give you his number.
