           My ring bearer was 3 and refused to wlak down the asile alone because it was too long and he was scared lol...so my mom and grandma ended up walking with him holding his hand. Hopefully they wont run off the side and start playing in the sand altough it'd be really cute and funny to see! lol

          hi ames,

          no you don't have to worry about playing the music yourself. I honestly never saw who was doing it but the day before you give Beverly everything for the wedding to be set up that you brought yourself including the music and it's all done for you! It's so not stressful its wonderful...just enjoy your day!

           Ok so I wore the smallest heels ever because im 5'9' and if i wanted to wear 1.5-2 inche shoes i would have had to order an extra long gown so i wore like .5inch lol. But that being said you can totally wear heels if you want. The way to the asile is werid you walk along the grounds then you walk across sand then get to the pathway. that being said though on the day of your wedding Beverly picks you up in the lobby in a van and drives it across the sand right to the steps so you can wear the biggest heels you want and not have to worry about the sand for the ceremony. Afterwards when you go to the side for your champange thats sand though and may be hard so maybe if u wanna wear heels for the ceremony do it then take them off afterwards if its hard to walk

Thanks!!!!

                Are any of you guys doing anything for your guests in Jamaica?  We only have 13 guests coming, so I've booked a bus to take us to Dunn falls and Ocho Rios for shopping.  It was SUPER cheap, and we have the private driver for the whole day so we can do stuff on our own time-line, and I think it will be a nice thanks to everyone for coming.  I used Lees Tours, the woman I spoke to was so great, got back to me right away.  I can't wait! 

                 

                17 days til we're in Jamaica and 21 days until I get married!!!!!!

                  Akua420, we were thinking of doing something along the lines of the same thing depending on how many people in total we have book. Can I ask how good of a price do they charge compared to others? A question for all the girls, has anyone heard of doing a webcast of the ceremony fir family can't make it to watch live? My grandmother is a huge part of my life and because she cannot make it I was wondering if it's still possible to make her a part of our special day. My mom suggested skype but I don't think that will work down by the gazebo! Any suggestions?

                    Akua420 - that's a great idea, we're thinking of the same thing, again depending on how many reply.  and congrats, i can't even imagine how excited you must be getting leaving within the month!!!

                     

                    Espejo2be - let me know what info you come up with for the live "broadcast" of the wedding.  i'm in the same situation with my grandpa and would love for him to be there, but it's really not possible, so that would be great if somehow it can be showed live (of coarse we could tape it and show it later, but that's just not the same).

                      Its going to be $168 for the bus for the day for 14 adults and one 2 1/2 year old and we have to pay our own way into Dunns Falls ($15 a person, my mom thinks people should pay their own way in but i'm still deciding)  Its a big bus, and we can stay however long we want at the falls, then we're going to Ocho Rios and go shopping, so depending on how long we want there we can decide.  My uncle has heart problems and can't walk around too much, so its perfect so if it gets to be too much he can just sit in the bus for a while.

                       

                      And yeah I don't know if there could be  a web cast, it would be pretty cool.
