    Hey my fellow Sept brides...how is your planning going?? What are you working on this month? What vendors have you booked? We booked our photographer, and we're in the midst of asking for a quote from the florist.

      Hi Island Girl,

       

      We are getting married on the 7th Sept and like you have the photographer booked and that is it. We did have a planner but costs were too high so are now trying to figure out what to do. We are getting married in a private villa so don't have the luxury or rather safety of a resort having everything under one roof. It's prooving quite difficult planning a wedding online! Would love to magic myself over there are meet with florists, caterers and so on :(

       

      How's your resort planner treating you?

        Our resort planner is alright so far. I won't have much contact with her until 2 months away from our wedding - apparently that's their policy. I know what you mean regarding trying to plan things online. Things like florists I would love to meet in person and decide what we like, but we're going to do the best we can with providing examples of what we want etc.

          Hello Sept Brides,

           

          We are getting married 9/25/11 at Iberostar Suites in Jamaica.

           

          Have you guys mailed out your invitations yet?  What RSVP date did you put?  It is hard to plan because I have no clue how many people are coming.  I have a lot of yes I am coming but only 6 people booked right now.  Anyone else running into this?

            I am in the process of sending my invitation out probably by the end of April. I asked for RSVP's by June 30. The wedding planner at the resort starts planning 2 months before the wedding. So I figure i can give the guest 2 months to RSVP and I have 2 months to plan logistics. I do have some people who say they are coming and still have not booked. Right now I only have 11 people booked plus us 2. Prices seem to be going up but it is what it is.

              I had the same problem with people saying "yes I'm coming" and then taking their time booking.  I am getting married in at the Riu (Ocho Rios) 9-10-11 and I sent out travel information in September 2010... I gave a deadline of March 2011 to book.  As of now I have about 40 guests and 50% of them just booked in Feb/March.  Not to worry, folks move in their own pace and most start talking before they even check their financial situation. You real family and friends will make it happen and be there!

                I am doing okay so far... booked the photographer, bridesmaid dresses are ordered, groomsmen are straight too. still deciding on flowers and entertainment.  Its crazy that you have to pay for all of this stuff at an all inclusive hotel????   just gonna touch bases with the WC @ ROR and confirm my plans there since the resort has been changing around wedding times and prices... ugh! But as advised, i have allll my emails. 

                 

                Hope all you brides are doing well :)

                  Hey ladies! I hope your planning is going well! Right now I'm getting ready to obtain quotes from florists and makeup artists. Time is flying and now it's time to kick up all my projects that I'm working on up a HUGE notch!

                    Hi September Ladies,

                     

                    Not long now! my dress and my ladies dresses sorted but we will probably hire the men's gear out there?? Still waiting on final quotes....even a rough quote would do at this point and working with the villa owner (not our wedding villa but one that us and some of our guests are staying in) to plan the welcome beach party.

                     

                    I find that in general, nailing anyone down is like pulling teeth and is starting to make me go a little bit crazy...are they waiting until August or something? Anywho, can't wait!

                     

                    Happy planning,

                     

                    CB

                      Hi September brides!

                       

                      I am getting married at Gran Bahia Principe Sept 3 @ 2pm!  I wanted a sunset wedding but there was a bigger wedding going on so it's pushing me up 2pm.  Only 4 months away, but I feel like I have so much left to do.
