    Hey Nancy,

     

    Which consultant did you have?   That sounds a little strange.  Like CBrewster we were also told we didn't have to pay until 45 days before the wedding.  I would certainly question the requirement to pay now. 

     

    I would definitely pre book your reception just in case for whatever reason they cant arrange location / food for that day but there is no way you should be paying now. 

     

    Let me know how you get on.

     

    Alex.

      Welcome Cbrewster,

       

      Not long until your big day.  I'm soooo jealous.  I cant wait to get there.  Like you we had to pay 45 days prior to the wedding date.

I have a travel agent who is a Sandals Wedding Specialist and I encourage you to work with one with that many guest. I haven't had to call Sandals once, she deals with everything for me. Heaven Sent!! Good Luck and let me know if I can be of any assistance,.

        Nancy that dress is beautiful.  I think the dress is the hardest thing to pick out. I have changed my mind so many times but finally a few weeks ago found the one and it actually made me cry when I put it on.  I knew instantly that was the one.  Nothing like waiting til the last minute.  I will pick it up next week and post a picture.  Trying to decide now how to wear my hair and whether or not to use a veil.  We are having our wedding at Sandals Antigua.  We leave July 20 and wedding is July 23rd.  Not too much longer :)  We are also doing the BB package with the sand ceremony and everyone has told us we can wait to make the decisions so you still have plenty of time.

          QUESTION TO ALL SANDALS BRIDES ... DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THEY WILL STEAM YOUR WEDDING DRESS UPON ARRIVAL?  HAS ANYONE HAD ANY ISSUES WITH TRAVELING ON THE PLANE WITH THE DRESS IN THE GARMENT BAG?

            Viki, 

             

            They will press out your dress for a cost though...I don't remember how much it was.

                    Hi everyone!

                    We are getting married at the Grande St Lucian April14,2012.  We are doing the twilight ceremony with the 2 hour reception, BB theme with individual upgrades and the steel drum band. Also, I plan on surprising him with the helicopter ride from the airport to the resort. Has anyone done that/planning to do that? I am also looking for fun welcome bag ideas??? Good luck everyone and hope we can all be a good resource for one another!!


                    Staying strong through a cancelled engagement/wedding. Thankful for all the ladies here and hoping the best for everyone!!! xoxo

                      Hi

                       

                      Welcome & congratulations.  Your ceremony sounds fantastic, as does your suprise helicopter ride.

                       

                      We get married at Sandals Grande Antigua in 17 days, also with the BB theme.  We only have 4 guests coming with us.  We were going to go with the steel band but thought it may be a bit loud with only 6 of us. 

                       

                      How far have you got with your planning?   You'll find so much invaluable information on this site.
