      CatererBride  - Congrats! Your wedding looks amazing. Our wedding colors are the same- I can only hope my day is as beautiful as yours was! I also considered sky lanterns but was worried that it may not have been legal (read they're not recommended near airports..apparently there is a small airport in ochi??) 


      I've been in touch with a caterer in Ocho Rios but was wondering if you had your chef's contact info/menu selection/ price range? Also- did he provide the tables/linens? Any help would be appreciated (You can PM me if you'd like). I still have til next July, but can feel the stress creeping in.


      Aren't you thrilled to be done with all this and enjoying wedded bliss :) ?

        Thanks Crasht and you know yours will be, and to you, even better!


        Sky lanterns... you know somebody else asked about the legal side and to be honest, I didn't even look into it. I knew that fireworks require a special very costly license but I just figured that the lanterns are harmless (I bought the biodegradable ones, a bit more expensive) and we are paying a premium for a private villa so we'll do what we like! It turned out fine, I guess it depends how cautious you are and if your villa is next to a police station? :)


        Caterer is Gregory Nelson - you WILL NOT be disappointed! He has the same passion for food and service as I do and that says something! (in fact I have never said that about anyone that I have worked with over the years!). His email is  chef.nelson@hotmail.com. He sorted out all tables and linens and our bar (so bar tenders, glasses, drink, ice etc.)


        Don't be stressed - this is so much fun!!! I thought I would be a complete stress head on the day but I wasn't at all...even though some of my husband's family were late so the ceremony was 45mins late, I was just chilling in my room with my girls!


        The only things I would have changed, was to be a bit more organised with time so that we could fit in all of our activities :), and that i'd eaten more food! I was just so caught up in the moment that time just flew by...We had a local jerk pork guy come up to the villa and do his thing for late night food but I was so all over the place with guests that i didn't get any! (Good job i've eaten his jerk pork & chicken waaaaay to many times before)


        I am happy it's over but I loved every second and yes, loving being wifey! x


        Good luck and I am happy to help in any way that I can!

            Hello!  Loved your photos!  I'm my own wedding planner because I'm a villa bride on a budget... and I am dying to know who your band was!  It seems they did it all... how can I get a hold of them?

                Ive decided to go with Dean Clarke for photos. Raschel Edwards for Makeup and Miss T's Kitchen for Catering.  They've all been pretty great to deal with via phone/email.

                      Hi - sorry for the pic heavy post but just wanted to share a small sample from our destination wedding in Ocho Rios this past July. We did all the planning ourselves and relied on friends/family to assist with the day-of coordination. Our wedding was perfect for us and our small group of 50 and we were delighted to stay close to our budget (airfare, accomodations, rings and wedding) were all under $12K Having a villa wedding allowed us the freedom we wanted to make our day our very own and to not completely bust our wallets. Our vendors were also extremely accomodating.
