I'm from Ontario, so not quite as cold as Alberta, so I know what you mean.

However, I did go to Mexico over new years two years ago and the evenings were chilly (needed another layer).

I can handle putting on another layer, sure beats a winter jacket, snow pants, touque, mittens, scarf, and winter boots!!  Not to mention scraping windows and shoveling snow...yeah I think another layer sounds alright to me!

I booked January too! I think that the ocean might be a little chilly, but it's high travel season so it'll still be nice and warm!!!!

Hi Girls --

 

In my opinion, and having traveled to JA many many times because my parents are Jamaican, Dec-April is still the best time to travel to JA. Summers are nice too - but I booked in March because the daytime was sunny and mid-80s and evenings were low 70s with a breeze....perfection. That way, you can still dance the night away without everyone looking sweaty in all your photos! ;)

I got a GREAT tan when I was in Montego Bay during the 2nd wk of March just this year.

I've been to Jamaica 4 times previous...once in Nov...once in Jan...once in April...and once end of May!  I have to say that from my experience, Nov - early April was beautiful! All warm days and never had to layer at all! Was able to go to the beach every single day and wear tanks/summer dresses all the time! Occasionally threw on a pashmina at night, but that was it! And there were definitely a few instances when we were seeking shade or AC!! When I went in May it was WAY too hot for us...we didn't want to do excursions or move! It was just too hot!  This speaking as a Canadian who is not used to such intense heat!!!  That's why we went with January as well!  Our guests also weren't keen on travelling in the spring/summer when the weather starts to pick up here!!

So I would 100% vote for the November - March/early April time frame!  You can't go too far wrong!

Heya!

 

I guess it truly is a hit and miss - I went to Ocho Rios, 3rd week of this past March and it was extremly windy all week. Chilly winds :( the last 3 days the overcast cleared up. I ended up deciding to book last week of April 2012 in hopes of getting more of the hot weather. 

 

So let's just send positive thoughts to all those having a DW that their week is PERFCT :o) <3

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&amp;ga_search_type=all&amp;ga_view_type=gallery&amp;ga_search_query=personalized necklace&amp;ref=sc_gallery-3-9&amp;plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
