    Shakara - one more question for you, in regards to Grande Garden, have you received quotes from them? I am to the point where I need to start looking for my florist, I know the types of flowers and colors I want but need to start sending out emails for quotes.
    Thanks!

      Aww that is sooo sweet about the honeymoon!!!!!!!! In regards to the flowers... I emailed Grande Garden on Sunday night for a quote because I liked all the flowers.... but I have not heard back from them. Wayyy back in the summer when I was debating about an offsite location for the ceremony I was in touch with Jan's flowers who gave me a quote... which wasn't too bad. I have not contacted Tai's flowers yet only because from what I've heard.. they are pretty pricey. I liked the website for Grande garden a lot better than Jan's so hopefully they get back to me soon... if not I'm gonna contact Jan again.

          So I'm sitting here at work (obviously not working) and I just became flooded with excitement of my wedding!!!! I CANT WAIT!!! I've been getting excited ALOT lately and I feel like no one really shares my enthusiasm. I have so much I want to share... so I'd figure I'd share it with people who are going through the same!!!!!! :)

          Soo I'm patiently waiting for my dress to come!! I must've tried on like 30 until I found the ONE (sottero and midgely ASM 3184 in diamond white without the sash) Figures the one time I actually try on the dress I want, I forget my camera!

          My Bridesmades ordered their dresses last week!!! YAYYYYY!! (alfred angelo 7045 in butter)

          I still have to get the flower girl dress... I should prolly do that soon.. they said my bridesmaids dresses won't come until May

          I'm reserved for the semi private dinner and poolside reception with bartender after wards- Thanks to my wonderful TA Maureen!!

          I found Grande Garden (Thanks to an awesome thread!) I'm going to order flowers through them!!

          HOLY CRAP guys I really need to show you a picture of my cake (once I figure out how to)... my mom picked it of course! My family is Jamaican and I have tons of family there so I guess my great aunt (never met) has someone who is going to do this ginormous cake 5 layers with a tier separating the top two and the topper in between. It really is pretty but DEF over the top (thats my mom for ya).

          I was watching WE tv... (GREAT CHANNEL) on like wedding sundays or something and I saw a great idea that think I might steal for the table center pieces they were vases with sand and seashells and a lit candle in the middle... it looked sooo PRETTY!!! (Can I just say DVR is great cuz I must've pressed stop and rewind a million times on this channel... my FI refuses to watch tv with me haha)

          OH YEAA bachelorette party.... CANT WAIT for that either!! Me n the girls are headin to Atlantic City!!!!

          Register- so my MOH is saying I should DEF register even if it is a DW because so many people are NOT going and who wouldnt want presents if someone wants to buy them for you?? Sooo I think I just might! Maybe like Target and Macys or something...

          Well thats really all for now... whoo I feel so much better now! I hold all this in around people cuz no one really cares that much... I use to get the 'will u ever stop' look (YES even from the FI) so I decided not to share any more.


          Thanks Everyone!!!!

          Who's going to do your cake? Will it be a black cake?
          I've booked Heather Parker for my photographer for my April 2, 2011 wedding in Ochi Rios, Jamaica. If anyone is getting married in Jamaica days before or after me and is interested sharing her travel expenses to save few wedding budget bucks, let me know. Take a look at her work for Moon Dance...

              Honestly, I'm not sure of her name... I know she lives in Kingston near where my family lives. She's done cakes for family weddings, reunions, etc. Yupp... its the jamaican rum cake and apparantly she's already "soaking the fruits" for the cake... which enhances the flavor or something like that lol. My mom is taking charge of this... but I'll find out the info if you're interested!

                  Hey Shakara,

                  How are you handling your local guests that already live in Jamaica as far as inviting them to your wedding and reception? Are you inviting a lot of your family that live on the island because I know Rius have that 80/20 rule?
