Honestly it really is your day ...just stay your course and it will turn out the way you want! as far as our wedding goes, we are doing a reception after the wedding only because I WANT ONE LOL not because its required, i think if you all went to the resort restaurant that would be just as great. Really its all about you your FI and your fam and friends all being together.
we too are doing the AHR only because i have some fam as does my FI that just cant come...and i really wanted to have some sort of wedding pics with them lol even if its not in Jamaica
were not having alot of ppl coming either we only sent out 30 invites, same as you only those who could behave lol
what area are you looking at for your wedding? do you have a destination you love? we chose Jamaica only because we loved the resort and the extras the FI and I could do during our weddingmoon
