    Your pictures make me really excited!  I have 6 months to go, but I think it will go quick!

     

    Thanks for all the info... I have one question, not sure if you can answer it...  I see you had a steel drum band, but if you don't go with that option, do you know if you can have music (i.e CD, iPod) for the ceremony at all?


    Thanks :)

          I did see a wedding that was a few days before mine that had speakers set up to provide ceremony music.  I believe that they can accommodate cds and ipods.  I would even bring both with the songs you want to play as I did because we found out when we were there that our cds weren't compatible with their cd players - thankfully friends of mine had the songs on their ipod!

           

          6 months will fly by!  congratulations!!!

                      We did rent the beach bar for the after dinner reception at $15 per person. The dj was also an additional cost.

                       

                      Tai Flora did my flowers and they have an incredible selection!  I don't know how you would pack flowers if you are going to try to get everything into one suitcase especially since my luggage got so man-handled on the trip!  I would get in touch with Tai Flora and ask them if they have or can get the flowers you want.  I was working with Jennievie - ochorios@taiflora.com

                       

                      Tal Flora also did my centre pieces.  We had a luggage restriction of 2 bags per person flying into Montego Bay and there was no way  I would have brought centre pieces.  I just told them I wanted simple white flowers in vases with candles and they totally delivered!  the dinner decorations were also brought down to the beach reception so we got to use them all night!
