Future Jamaican Brides 2011!

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies! I just booked my wedding for July 26, 2011 at Couples Swept Away at 3 pm!!! I am so excited. I went back and forth for so long on the time to have the ceremony bc of the rain. I finally decided to just chance it and go with what I wanted....

 

Any other future Jamaican Brides........?????

 Hi!  Congrats!

 

I'm a newly engaged, future Jamaican bride, too!

 

I'm getting married July 2012, and I also decided to go with a 3 pm ceremony.  I was nervous about it at first, too, but I figured there's no way to be sure it won't rain.

Congrats!  We will be getting married in Jamaica in December 2011 but are still nailing down the resort.

 

DeAngelis - I would definitely recommend the Couple Resorts for a honeymoon.  We have only been to Couples San Souci in Ocho Rios but it was amazing...by far the best resort ever, and I am saying that when we were rained out for half of it!  We are considering Swept Away but it is pricier and San Souci was mind-blowing. I looked at Sandals but I didn't like how big they are bc you just turn into another number.  Couples resorts are pretty small (less than 300 rooms) so you tend to see the same other guests so you make friends easily and we aren't super-social by nature.  But better than that is the food.  Most AIs struggle to provide good food but Couples is really good.  And the staff is really great overall.  Yes, there were a few that weren't friendly all the time but that was 2 or 3 people out of 100.  I also like that they have floats to use in the pool or in the ocean water. 

 

Just look closely, because they aren't all the same.  Like only 1 or 2 resorts offer room service, and not all of the rooms have TVs or minibar.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
