    Hi Kim,

     

    Good to hear from you. You're location looks absolutely fantastic.  Our wedding is August 4th so only a couple of days before you.  I can't wait but it still seems soooo long away.

     

    Do you have many guests?  Our's is only small with 6 people including us!!

     

    Thankfully the boxes are approved to be used as hand luggage so I can take my dress on board with me.  I'd be devastated if it got lost.  Have you got your dress yet?  I'm on my third choice now.  The first I got off Ebay which turned into a disaster.  Cheap material, wrong sizing etc.  The second I thought would be ideal for a beach wedding but then decided it didn't feel weddingy enough.  The third, is perfect & definitely 'The One'....Thankfully.

     

    We've decided to go for the Martha Stewart wedding with Sandals, the Beautiful Beginnings package.  I thought it would be so stress free, but am finding it difficult being so far away & not being able to clarfiy many things until we actually arrive on 1st August.  I'm sure it'll turn out fine & I'm just worrying for no reason.   How are you finding your planning, have you organised much yet?  I'm looking for a photographer to take TTD pics.  We're not allowed to bring outside photographers onsite at Sandals & I'm not convinced as to the quality of the ones we have to use so thought it might be a good idea to go out & about in Antigua & get more pics, we didn't think it would be too much of a problem getting dressed up the next day & you can never have too many wedding pics right?

     

    I'm so pleased to chat to someone who will be on the island the same time as us.  There doesn't seem to be many Antiguan Brides on here. 

     

    Looking forward to hearing your plans.

    Our ceremony will be up on Peace Hill and then we'll have transportation to take everyone back down to Cruz Bay for the reception at Ocean Grille (in Mongoose Junction).   Would love to hear your plans!

      Hi Alex,

      I just realized that there must be a St John in Antigua too!  Our wedding is actually on the island of St John in the Virgin Islands.  I've heard wonderful things about Antigua though, so I'm sure your wedding will be so beautiful.

      It sounds like you been through quite an ordeal with your dress!!  I actually ordered a Pronovias gown back in November, so I'm hoping it will be in very soon.  I understand changing your mind though, I've still been drooling over the Watters Lasara gown....but it's just way over my budget!

      Do you have a wedding coordinator?  I chose my planner back in October and she has made things SO easy for us!  We'll probably end up with about 30-40 guests...but only 15 or so have booked their travel arrangements already.  All of our arrangements are basically in place except for choosing a bakery for the cake and a florist, which we'll be doing sometime in the spring.  

      Best of luck- I'm sure everything will turn out great!

        Hi Kim,

         

        Aahh, the Virgin Islands sounds fantastic.  I'm sure you'll have a fantastic time. It's really difficult trying to pick the right dress.  That said, budget does have a big part to play.  I'm sure you'll look stunning.  Pronovias have some beautiful gowns.

         

        We do have a wedding coordinator & of late she's been a lot better communicating.  I forget that she has countless other weddings to arrange & that mine isn't that high on her list. (Not yet anyway).  She's been ok but not too proactive with telling us what's available etc. We've had to ask her questions.  I'm sure it'll all come together & from what I hear most of the finer details are arranged once you arrive at the resort.

         

        You're very well organised.  We still have to finalise music, although we do know we having the steel drums.  We've booked a Sandals photographer, but are still looking for somone to take some TTD shots away from the resort.  Other than that, I THINK we're pretty much there. 

         

        Happy planning.  I'm sure you'll have a truly amazing time.
