Thanks for the info! I'm pretty much looking at getting most of the stuff for the wedding in Jamaica. However as we've got a year or so to go I may well change my mind.

 

If I come across anything that might be of use I'll post it for you.

 

Cheers.

Hi,

Quite funny you should start this post.. I was beginning to think Im the only one in this boat!

Lovely reading all the US posts but its nice to know that now I will be a little more familiar with others in their search & plans around their day from a shopping/ resources point of view.

Planning my wedding for May 2011. Church ceremony & private villa reception in Ocho Rios with approx 50 in wedding party. Doing so without a planner so far and have sourced much of what Im after...am I crazy! Lol

Will share anything I come across which may be useful :)

Hi, from another UK b2b with only 19 days to go, after booking in March 2009.

 

Getting married at Riu Negril Clubhotel which we booked through Thomsons with the Royal Wedding Package, so pretty much every already included. WC also sent a list of any addtions we may require so we will just be buying additonal flowers for best man, bridemaid and guests, adding chair covers with bows and up grading the photo package. The only down side we found booking with Thomsons was that although we got one out of the 3 dates we requested, we were not given a time and was told we would not find this out until we arrived at the hotel. (we had requested a 4.00pm wedding when we booked, due to reception dinner being at 6.30pm) so we ended up having to contact the WC at the hotel to request a date with at 4.00pm slot and this was arranged no prob's a day later than day the date that Thomsons had booked for us.

Hi all,

 

Glad were not the only UK couple.

What Traditions are you guys using in your ceremony, holiday, etc as we gave been a bit confused what we should do, and the American way seems to be a little different...OOT Bags? and other stuff.

Hi Mark, we are just sticking with the royal wedding package a part from a few upgrades, (flowers, chair covers & photo's) not doing any OTT's or place cards, flavours, TTD etc due to cost's and that's why we booked a wedding aboard in the first place. Will be sticking to the first dance, throwing the flowers, cutting the cake and the speeches but that's about it for us.

I'm pretty easy going for the most part and am happy to work with the WC with whatever works. We're planning on going with the hotel package ( iberostar rose hall suites ) and adding some flowers etc.

 

I am planning to do a small OOT bag ( out of town bag ) with a few gifts and information for our guests mostly because it's an easy way to communicate our itinerary and plans to everyone while we're there along with a thank you for coming.

 

We'll also be bringing a few extra things to decorate the tables at the reception as I've found out that the table settings will be pretty basic so I'll be bringing table runners and a few items to jazz up the centers.

 

Otherwise I'm happy to go with the flow. We may decide to add in a DJ or music later but not really bothered about it at the moment.

 

I've been looking at a sand ceremony as I've seen it mentioned a few times on these forums but after talking about it with my FI I don't think it would be that meaningful for either of us so we're going to skip it and have our guests do chinese flying lanterns after dark instead. :-)

 

Good luck with the planning

Cheers,

Kay

Oh I love the idea of the Chinese flying lanterns Catalyst :)

I saw these lanterns last week in the 99p store! They looked like the proper thing. They only had white available which would be great for a wedding. Im sure they'd have a 99p store near you so check it out asap!!
