      Congrats! WOW thats a huge group going. how are you going to get all your stuff to the resort?

      thats fantastic that your WC is providing the mugs how did you swing that lucky deal? LOL

      Jamaica is beautiful and you are going at a fantastic time of year. 2 years ago i was in Jamaica at the Riu Ocho Rios Jan 16th for a week and it was incredible :)

      We are getting married the first week in January 2012, Jan 4th to be exact, at the Sunset Jamaica Grande in Ocho Rios.

      We have the amazing help of our travel agent/wedding coordintor who has experince with the resort amony dozens of others.

       

      We have about 65 pppl booked right now, and we already know that there will be more to come! Great for our celebration, not so great on our budget considering the amount of OOT bags I have to make. I was stressing over the Travel Mugs and how much it is going to cost us and now the WC is taking them over and providing them to our guest free of charge!

       

      I've been getting all kinds of ideas form thi ssite and now that everything is rolling we are starting to put them all together!

       

      Fingers crossed, all goes well!

          Wow you are soo lucky to have that many people come and share your day!!  That must make you happy!  Have you been to Ocho Rios before?  We were just there this Feb...drove into the Sunset Jamaica Grand to pick up people on a day trip...it looks nice!!!  So nice of your TA to take care of the mugs for you!!  One less thing to stress over.  Good luck with all your planning!

                Hello!!!

                We have my wedding band, but we still have to get my sweeties.  I still haven't decided if I'm going to do OOT bags or just the favors.  I was on a website ( weddingthings.com)  and found some gel candles with shells in them.  They come in a clear box with a thank you card attached,  really cute.  And we both still have to renew our passports and get our two boys a passport. I just feel like I'm forgetting something :)  I think once my deposit day comes and I know how many people are for sure coming, then I can finish off the favors and send in my wedding info forms to the resort,  then I will probably feel better :)

                  Hey, I ordered my dress today I am so excited!!!! They said it will take 4 months to come in, once I get it I will post pics! I got it from a place in North Gower. My colour is blue, I am going shopping in July with the bridal party to get their dresses, I think we are just going to check out some places in Ottawa. I haven't really thought of decorations but I don't want to be bringing a lot of stuff down with us so if I do it won't be much also I was thinking the bouquets could be put on the tables as decoration? Not to sure yet. I can't wait either!!!!!! Are you having an AHR?

                    I'm hoping to have pink and white in my flowers.  I just can't wait to get there.  Are you bringing your own stuff to decorate or are you using their stuff?  I'm thinking I just want them to do that way less stuff to pack!  Other than all the stuff on their forms, I don't really know what else I can do here.  Anyway... Good luck with  dress shopping Saturday....i hope you find your dream dress!!! :)

                      LOTS lol

                       

                      you need shoes and accessories for your dress

                      you need to decide or have inspiration for your hair and make up (print some pics and bring them with you)

                      Are you doing OOT bags?

                      Have you picked all your decor?

                      will you do a pre travel brochure for your guest

                      will you do a welcome brochure for your guests

                       

                      I can go on for days! :P LOL
