    No didn't find my shoes yet! I'm looking for fushia shoes! But got my dress! I'm also bringing my decorations along with me cause the resort charges so much for every tiny thing! Did you figure out what you doing for your bouquet? And for the cake? I really don't like their choices of cake!! I had so many pictures of nice cakes that I would love to have but their selection is pretty narrowed!

    Yea I agree. Cake is not a huge deal for me though so I'm not going to sweat it. And the shoes.....I am also looking for the perfect ones. Thinking I am going to get magenta shoes and get crystals on the heels. All my flowers are going to be done through Jan's. mine is a cascading design with white roses and magenta orchids with a few other purple roses ... A touch darker. The bridesmaids are white roses with some tips dyed in shades of purple. 2 arrangements will be also on the pillars in the front of the gazebo.

      Wow your floral arrangements seems super nice! Did it costs you a lot with Jan for all that?

          Btw is there another way we can communicate that would be easier? We could keep in touch since we'l both be in Jamaica at the same time! Do u have Facebook or email?

            Thanks Great! Do you know where the closest Liquor place is? Are you just going to rent a car or taxi?

            We will purchase the liquor in Ocho Rios. My inlaws are familiar with the area; they own a house close by.

              Can I just ask you new brides how long it took you to book and confirm and sign contracts for everything? (like have your travel details and wedding date and venue from resort secured)  So far, it's almost been a month for me, and even though I've been told dates, every time they've sent me an invoice or a contract, it has been wrong...so I really have confirmation of nothing.  I am just wondering if this is the typical experience that most people are having?  And maybe this is the average time it takes? I was really hoping to have everything done and signed and set in stone by now...but, the fact that it isn't is only causing me more stress. undecided.gif

              It took me a lot of time and stress!  I sent out STD's about a year ago and told everyone to save the week of Nov 23 - 30.  The TA had told me to wait for the travel bookings to open up (around April) before we could book anything.  About January, I was getting anxious and had her start working on prices for me.  Plus I had about 3 or 4 other TA's checking prices for me too.  Unfortunately, there were no wedding times left at GBP that week so I started checking out other resorts or doing an offsite wedding.  Bottom line, I like the resort and you can't beat their wedding prices so I changed my week to Dec 7 - 14.  Then I couldn't get the time I wanted, but I wasn't changing it again. Getting the travel arrangements together took 3 - 4 weeks.  I just hope the whole vacation and wedding comes together smoother!

              I'm really hoping that everything comes together soon!! I've already changed my date once, but have been told I am confirmed for December 07. The unsettling thing is that no one from the resort has contacted me, or asked me for a deposit for the Piscis private venue, even though my TA says it's booked for me. I've emailed the resort numerous times trying to confirm with them, but they seem unable to tell me. I don't know what's going on...but, I'm hoping it works itself out, because I am 4 weeks in just trying to confirm a date and a venue and travel arrangements for guest, and don't really have any solid confirmation of anything... :-S

                    I would suggest emailing Stephany (info below).  She's pretty good at getting back to emails, typically in a day or two.  Donna Lee is awful at responding.  Or call the wedding office directly.  The only problem is that you won't have the confirmation in writing.

                      And any recommendations for videographer over there?

                       

                      The resort Videorapher's work makes me want to vomit! (Um.. no offence if you're the bride in thier sample video :) )

                       

                      For Video Service the cost will be $440 with tax included (Ceremony and Session)

                      Elite Media concepts seem fantastic. They turn your wedding into a mini movie. Expensive of course! Plus the 800 vendor fee. (BLAH). I'm hoping to get this for a wedding present from our parents!

                       

                      "We specialize in short-form wedding films which means we really focus on making you an amazing "movie-like" production that you'll actually want to watch for years after your wedding day. It's important to note that we aren't a traditional videography service. We don't give you a long, boring 2-3 hour wedding video. Instead we use real cinema tools in our filming and real story-telling techniques in our editing to make your film unique to your wedding.
                      I really would love for you to see what a final product looks like so here are some links to my recent feature films:

                      Thanks so much for your interest in our services. I am available for your Wedding on Wednesday, January 15, 2014.

                      Here is a link to our packages:

                      You can build your own package here and when you're done, it will send us all the info so we can provide an accurate quote for you based on the items you want."
