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.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
