If you have any questions, please let me know.

    I am thinking about going to Secrets for my honeymoon. I have kids for my wedding!!!

      Yes. I plan to keep my wedding simple! I mean you are already in Jamaica!

Don't stress the small stuff...the scenery will be so beautiful and the simple petals will have an impact!

        OMG!!! Not the crying man in speedos!

            My wedding is less than 4 months out, so this thread is extremely helpful. Thanks everyone for taking the time to post.

            This thread has been so helpful beyond words I cannot describe it! I am tearing up thinking of the wonderful memories we will be creating with our family and friends. Thank you everyone for sharing your experiences!

             

            I have a question - what are you doing (or what did you do) about sleeping arrangements with your fiance the night before the wedding? I want to keep it traditional and sleep apart and not see each other until I walk down the aisle, but the hotel cannot offer us separate rooms the night before. So one of us would have to go sleep somewhere else. My fiance doesn't think this is a big deal (to sleep together and see each other) but I kind of do. But at the same time I feel bad asking my fiance to sleep elsewhere as we both want to be comfortable and get a good nights sleep. Thoughts/suggestions/comments?

             

            Thanks ladies!

            Jackie

                Do you have any girlfriends or bridesmaids you could have share a room with you the night before? Maybe they traveled there alone, or they have a room with two beds and your groom is friends with their husband/partner? Your groom could swap rooms and stay in their room instead?
