    Turns out I panicked over nothing lol. I have communicated with her 2 or 3 times now and she has only taken about 24-48 hours to reply each time. But I was stressing because we really wanted to get our trip booked! We're going over Spring Break so we were worried about the prices going up and the flight booking up, etc. Anyway, we're officially booked! Trip and Wedding! YAY!

     

    Have you heard back by now?

      I know our TA is holding 33 rooms for us...up until 2 months before the wedding APRIL 2012 i would think that if you only need 8 rooms that there shouldnt be a problem for them to hold them for you....i would look into this a little more. let us know what happends

      Two hands will join together on their special day and look at each other and say I DO on April 14 2012 in Montego Bay Jamaica

        Quick question... Did they say your reception will be on the actual beach? Just double check because they had a "beach BBQ" when I was there, but it was on the sand volleyball court which isn't on the beach. I don't want you to worry, but check!

        Hbond,

         

        The beach BBQ is $55/ person, but there is no fee for the beach (I believe there is a fee for the other reception sites in addition to the per person fee).  I am not sure why they told you nothing on the beach...that is very odd.  We are also renting the sound system for the beach bbq, so we will actually have our reception on the beach from 6 pm to 10 pm.  However, one thing I have started worrying about that I did not consider when we decided on this.....what if it rains?!?!?!  For this reason, I decided to try and book a different form of reception, but all of the other areas are now booked.  Sooooo, we are stuck with it.  But, I would recommend you consider other options.  Hope this helps!

          You're welcome! So happy I can help! More pics should be coming soon! I get the professional pics in about a week! Yea!!

          BeachBridein11,

          Thank you for the advice, I will look into it.  We only need eight rooms, so we don't have a contract... but she said that if we get to the magic number of ten, then we do.  If we could hold the rooms for two months, I would be less stressed.

           

          Your wedding looked amazing and is one of the reasons we selected G.P. :)

            Wow, I didn't even think about that!  Thank you SO MUCH for letting me know about the "Beach BBQ" you witnesses.  I would be really disappointed if I paid so much money for a reception on a volleyball court!  I will write my WC now.  Thanks again!!  As always, you are SOOOOO helpful!!

              Hello All.

               

              I just wanted check to see what you girls are or did for attire for the men.  I have myself and the bridesmaids.  I was thinking groomsmen in beige/khaki pants and white shirts (linen if I can find them) and then my FH in a beige/khaki suit so he's a bit more formal.  Any feedback is appreciated.  And any info on where I should look would be fantastic.

               

              Thanks in advance for your help ladies!

                Hi Katis,

                 

                I decided that the khaki pants & white shirts were too common, so I decided to switch it up!  I went with light gray linen shirts & white pants.  I figured that was still very neutral, but different from the norm beach wedding.

                  Okay ladies, I am in a pickle and I need your help!!  I have not received final confirmation yet, but I am pretty sure that BeachBridein11 was right and my "Beach BBQ" will not be on the beach at all!  In fact, it will be on the sand volleyball court!!  I do not want to pay $55/ person to eat on a volleyball court!  Trouble is that all of the other reception locations at the resort are booked.  :( 

                   

                  So, I am considering looking into a location not on the resort.  Even if it was a nice restaurant where we could have dinner and do toasts, etc.  I need options!!  Any suggestions?  I am less than a month away, and I need to get this figured out ASAP so I can print out the agendas for the weekend, etc. 

                   

                  Thanks, ladies!!

                    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that your beach reception is on the actual beach!!

                     

                    But to answer your question... the GP is kinda in the middle of nowhere.  The town of Lucea is nearby, but when we drove through it to go to Negril, I didn't really see anything.  Downtown Montego Bay is about 20 minutes away, so I'm thinking that might be your best bet.  I just hope it doesn't come down to that!

                     

                    Though to try to calm you down... the beach BBQ setup was nice though!  They took down the nets and had a lovely setup with white linen.  Not sure of all the decorating they would do for a wedding reception though.  The court is situated next to the pool and overlooks the beach (it is right next to the beach, but the beach is "below"... you have to go down stairs to get to it).

                     

                    What time is your wedding ceremony?  How many guests?

                      We did exactly what you are thinking of doing.  Groomsmen and fathers wore linen (khaki) pants w/white button up shirts (fathers had short sleeves, GMs long sleeves).  My husband had a linen (khaki) suit.  All from JCPenny. 

                       

                      Shoes.... GMs and Husband = Reef sandals, Fathers = huaraches
