    First of all what a GREAT board, I am disappointed it took me this long to find it!

    My name is Lucy, and I am getting married on the beach at Couples Swept Away in Negril, Jamaica in less than a month on June 18, 2010. My fiance Joe proposed May 27, 2009 and we quickly decided to be wed in Jamaica. I have always pictured my wedding on the beach, and we originally were looking at Hawaii, but it wasn't in our budget.

    We are also having a reception back home on July 10 for those who cannot attend our ceremony. I originally wanted a BBQ in the park, but it has turned into a traditional reception in a banquet hall. Much more money and planning than I expected, but it will be worth it!

    In the past couple weeks, I have gone into panic mode realizing how close it is and I'm even losing sleep thinking about how I'm going to get it all done! I'm sure you all know what I mean!

    I look forward to gathering and sharing information with you ladies. You all seem so nice :)

            Hi Lucy! Welcome to the site and congrats! We are doing a traditional AHR too, so I know all the planning you are doing. We chose to make the destination wedding less formal though...so less planning in Jamaica for me :) Your date is right around the corner, so relax, enjoy and have a wonderful trip!
