    I sent a quote to them and never heard back for over 2 months, then i sent another one and got a response within a day from her assistant! Try sending your email again - i don't know if it just doesn't go through sometimes or what?!

      I know, it would have been nice to meet another "Newfie / Jamaican Bride"


      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?

Too bad we won't be there the same time!!

        I am worried about the same thing, looking really red and having bad tan/burn lines in my wedding photos. . We get there on the 14th and the wedding is the 18th. I am very fair skinned too and so is my finacee, so we will have to cover up and wear lots of sunscreen. Its also the first time either of us will be going down south.

          Myself and my finacee have not told anyone else this yet, we want to keep it a secret to see everyones faces when it plays but.. The only song I have chosen so far is "I need a girl" by P Diddy! Im going to walk down the aisle to it. I'm not really a traditional bride, my ceremony isnt going to be traditional at all. And the song is perfect for us.

          I chose it for the lyrics" I really need a wife at home"...."I need a girl to make my wife" and "You the girl I been lookin for my whole life.
          God bless me, I'm glad I got the insight, It's cuz of you girl, now I understand life"

           I cant wait to see peoples reaction when it plays. I think its going to be sweet and hilarious at the same time.


          What about you?
           

          What songs have you ladies chosen for walking down the aisle and all that good stuff?

            I am planning to walk down the aisle to "No one" by Alicia Keyes. I think it is such a perfect song!

             

            I haven't been on this website forever and I just got back into the wedding planning after a big move and I realized I made a HUGE oops! When I was looking over the brochure I had from Beverly I saw that all of the packages required a seven night stay and I purposely had mine shortened to 5 so that I wouldnt be on my honeymoon with my entire extended family! I even had to pay extra to do that because of how the package deals work! I AM FREAKING OUT! I sent an email to my TA about options, but I dont know what we will be able to do since we've already booked and deposited. Has anybody else had a wedding on a shorter stay?!?

             

            If she comes up with nothing I have no idea what we will do! I guess I will just wait until a LOT a LOT of people have booked for my wedding and be like "See? I brought you a bunch of business!" But I dont see that going well!

             

            I am also extremely worried about the sheer size of my group! At first we were worried only like 10 people would come, but Ive already have 11+ people invite themselves! I would not be surprised in the least if my group is 100- 150 people! EEP! has anybody else had a big wedding at GBP or know about the costs for larger parties? Fingers crossed its just early madness, but we both have giant families.

                  Hi katelyn. I want to lighten up the moment by playing that song, I will be crying that day anyway, and so will most of my guests. Thanks for the link. Its so funny. It made me laugh and also made me teary eyed thinking about my own wedding. hahaha. I really want to plan some funny stuff for my wedding too, but dont have it all figured out yet.

                  I love it that your uncle will be playing guitar and your sister in law singing with him for your wedding. That will be the sweetest thing

                    i love that song! We're planning on using it for our first dance. I haven't decided on other songs yet, but we're definitely gonna use 'today was a fairytale' by Taylor Swift at some point during the ceremony

                      Celeste,

                       

                      I did notice that the 7 night stay is a part of all the wedding packages.  Not sure if they penalize, but will be asking because I really didn't plan to be there for 7 nights if I didn't have to be there.  Will let u know when I find out something.
