wow! so much to review!! miss a few days and you're way behind!
first Val - you looked STUPENDOUS!!!! absolutely gorgeous!! if that's the sneek peek of your pics, I can't wait to see what's to come!!! congrats on finally getting the big day done!
I'm really getting nervous about the posts I'm seeing. our day is 4 weeks from tomorrow and we leave in 3 weeks. bugs??? roaches??? yuck!! some of what I'm hearing really worries me since we're only 2 and don't have any friends to back us up with help!! we're doing a sand ceremony too but I'm going to have the big guy take care of that. Donnalee ain't gettin anywhere near it!!! lol
and I've had completely different stuff given to me in terms of what cake design options I have, what flower design options I have. cupcake - where the heck did you get those pics of the cake options?? I got nothing like those sent to me!!! unfortunately I'm at work and what I do have is on my home puter but tonight I will post what I have for flowers and cake. they are nothing like what everyone else seems to have and I was told I couldn't change any designs or colours. you get what you pick and that's it.
flower selections from Tai I'm really pleased with if it helps anyone. she gave me about 15 choices but since we're just 2 I opted for something a bit bigger so we're getting a nice bouquet (I hope) a bout, and a really nice centerpiece for our table for $200. given what the costs are here, I'm fine with that. it's the jamaican tax that kills you!!! 17%! wow!!
plus someone here was asking about the 2012 package prices. I have those at home too so will post them.
hello to all the newbies!! this is an awesome site. the ladies are wonderful with both advice and moral support! I'm so going to miss it later on, but I'm going to stick around to check on some of the january weddings just to see how they turn out!!!
tekya - you still sound like you enjoyed everything in spite of the mishaps and that's all that counts. we do have to remember that it isn't home. it's a different country and they do things differently there. and you're doing it from a distance. they're a hotel chain. they do their best (most of them) but things will happen. if you don't find a way to laugh about it, you go crazy and life is just too short for that. I've learned that lesson BIG TIME over the last few months of being deserted for my wedding.
and lastly for anyone still looking for a photographer I can't say enough about ours even though we haven't used him yet. he has been a prince with all of our disappointments and upsets and I would recommend him just based on his attitude because he has been so great. if his pictures are half as good as his website and how he deals with things, I will truly have beautiful wedding photos.
