    As for my review I will keep it very short and sweet :)

     

     

     

    When we arrived we were part of the 3 buses that came in unfortunately we didnt have golden club so we had to wait in the line up.  We arrived around 1:30pm and our rooms werent ready (no biggy as check in in really 3pm) we rec'd our room after we were finished eating lunch along with the 60 people who we came with for our wedding.  Some rooms were a disaster as it had rained really hard that day and some rooms were flooded due to this, again no biggy as they moved those people to another room as fast as they could (jamaica time remember) so after the first day everyone was safe and sound in their rooms phew !!

     

    I met with Chandlyn Sunday at 11am and it took all but 30 minutes to plan the wedding she had all my information in file and in order :D she was super sweet and knew exactly what she was doing (as she has done I dont know how many weddings) I also spoke with Donelee another day and she was super sweet too, she wasnt rude to any of us and was very helpful when i asked her for information or with questions.

     

    Tuesday October 18 was our wedding :D

    and all i can say about it is that it was PERFECT !! i wouldnt change a thing, if i had to pick because of our large group i would have got married at 2pm rather than 3pm but no biggy

     

    we hired the steel drum band to play at the ceremony and i had written vows for the minister to read and it was PERFECT :D

     

    We also did our cutting of the cake and had it with the champagne, along with our first dance and parents dances as well.  After that we took tons of photos (done by Marcia and Chris Rose)

     

    I need to say something about Marcia and Chris !!! THEY WERE AMAZING !! Lovely people and they were sooo much fun i would highly recommend them in a heart beat.  They took well over 1000 pics on the wedding day and probably well over 1000 pics at trash the dress (the next day) both of us felt like superstars :)

     

    the reception we had at the Dolce Vita, and it was PERFECT :D no one had complaints about the food and the food came out piping HOT.  We had the minestrone soup, pasta rigatta, chicken and risotto and tiramisu YUMMMMMMY it was my best meal the whole trip (well apart from the jerk chicken hut)

     

    after the reception we all went dancing in the disco ! perfect ending :D

     

    oh ya and flowers were done by tai Flora, awesome job !!!! they were just what i wanted !!

     

    so for all the future GBPJ brides please i repeat please dont sweat as everything will be perfect just the way you imagined it ! just relax and have fun :D

     

    Here are some pics from the resort photog, cant wait to get Marcia's pics though :D

          Congrat Acw Your day sounds absolutely perfect and your a beautiful bride I am so glad your happy and I hope your AHR reception is really awesome too. It's been a long time me and you have been on here waiting for october and November i am so happy to of had all these wonderful brides and woman to talk to as well they have been a god send honestly.

           

           

          Congrats toes in your pics are great too i also am using marcia so I am even happier with my choice now. i also am hoping for the Dolce Vita becaus ei like that it's semi private and onthe ocean.

           

           

          have any brides got the free upgraded room that is subject to availability because a lot of my guests have the diamond but I amhoping i get it free if it's available did any brides get this upgraded room. I really don't want to pay for a upgrade I may already be getting any help would be great.

              Hey fleet mac

               

              we didnt get an upgrade persay, as all the rooms are the same other than if you want to be on the top floor etc

              we did get robes, slippers and ammenities as well as our beach towels in our room, we also had fruit delivered to our room and champagne (which we took home)

               

              I wouldnt spend the money on the upgraded room.

               

              I also bought wifi down there, its a bit on and off, cost me $55 for 5 days but i actually got to use it for 6 days.  It didnt work while we were in the bldg because of the cement structure, but worked around the pool area and beach.

                  Thanks Vicky/Toes in good to know I was curious cause some of my guests go it and some didn't and my travel agent said they would be in a different building then us because they got the upgrade but it looks like it doesn't really matter. Also thanks for posting another pic. I just talked to Marcia yesterday and told her I have some cute shoes for her shoe fetish LOL.

                   

                  Thanks

                    One last question Vicky

                     

                    Your gown is similar to mine you don't look like your dying of heat in it, was the heat tolerable in your dress. I have been worried about roasting my butt off in mine.
