      StephAli, Thank you for all of your information so far. What restaurant did you have your dinner in? How did you like it? And what flavour cake did you have?

She even came in towards the end of my dinner to check up on everything and to let me know the gazebo was ready for me. I only paid $500 for the gazebo and that included the dj. I had to pay extra for the bartenders, but she charged me for half the group since its a per person thing. 

      As for day passes we had two people come in who were staying off the resort. They went to the desk, got there wrist bands and then waited for almost 15 mins and still werent asked to pay, so they casually walked away...lol...I believe that the passes were somewhere in the $75-$80 range....but I can't seem to find the email that had that info....

       

      Hope that helps!

        if you are interested in silk for your bridesmaids, the bridesbouquet.com is an excellent place to get them, they have a facebook page too where you can browse pics. They also ship to Canada.

              They definitely do 2 weddings a day, unless you pick a time thats not peak, then you might only get one.  But they ahve it set up so you don't see the other bride, not sharing spaces or anything so I am not concerned at all.

                    It is too bad that we wont be there at the same time.
                    Have you been to Jamaica before? or will the wedding be your first time there?

I actually lived in St.John's for about 5 years before moving to Fort Mcmurray and then to Edmonton.  We will be getting there on August 4th and leaving on the 11th (we were going to stay for 2 weeks but we're actually planning on having another reception and dance in Grand Falls when we get home so we cut it down to 1 week). Too bad we won't be there the same time!!

                      She sent me the contract that she wanted me to sign and send back to her and she requested a 50% deposit whenever I was ready, there was no timeline! :)

                      I have also been in contact with Jans and have everything set but she has never asked me for a deposit...I am assuming I should contact her about this?

                      I finally got a quote from Jan's Flowers and will be making that deposit today but have already made a deposit for Merrick Cousley. I thought it would be simple to show up at the bank with the account numbers he gave me and just wire the money but there's a pile of other information (inclding his personal address) and well as paperwork to make it go through at the bank so I ended up using PayPal and saving money compared to the bank fees!
