Hello, I'm getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe in Runaway bay Jamaica in March 2012 aswell.  Its not priced to bad, we also stayed at the Riu Ocho rios in Feb. and there were lots of nice weddings there everyday!! They have good wedding plans awell!  Good luck! :)

Ps I grew up in Ottawa, i'm just outside of Belleville now though, but still go back to visit a lot! 

Take care

Awsome!!! which wedding planner are you talking with? I'm talking with Chandlyn, she seems really nice even though its over email.  She returns email fairly quick and answers all my questions.  Have you got a dress yet?

Thanks, I just got a quote from my TA for Riu Ocho Rios and it is a bit high so I think I am going to look into a few other resorts. My FI's parents were just at the Bahia and they loved it.

Ya the Riu was too high for our guest too.  The Bahia is not bad, but even still its a little high for some people but I guess I can't expect everyone to make it.  Its hard to make it work for everyone.  Good luck!! I hope you find something :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
