So sorry to hear this :) I have sungold associates booked and they are great to work with, have you checked them out? Also you could try Sungold with Paula and Damian, they were out of our photography budget or we would have went with them.

Nice ring Krysta! Don't worry, something will work out for you eventually.

 

On a side note...........I just bought a second dress for the reception. I worked the bridal show this weekend at the Direct Energy Centre. It's a short 50's style dress. Got it the bridal show but it was missing the belt. Any recommendations on style? I don't have a picture of me in it but you can see it online. Google mori lee 6716. Any help would be apprectiated?

Hello Ladies, I am new to this site...seems like a lot of people are getting married in Jamaica! I am getting married in Mexico and invited around 80ppl....well with the combination of other vacations planned, people not being able to "afford it" and all the Canadian beatings and killings in Mexico lately, my guest list is maybe 8 :'( Anyone else have that problem?

Hey Jen,

most of my guests have already been to Mexico and no one is worried... killings happen everywhere, you have to be smart about where you are and what you're doing. Plus, where we're going, the mayan riviera, it's a super safe place. we're lucky to have a group of 62 :)

Cute dress!

I would go with maybe a satin or taffeta ribbon and add a flower with feathers. You can try making one yourself or buying one, i've seen lots on etsy.

Alternatively you could go with someting with some bling on it. A sash with some beading/crystals might also look really pretty rather than a flower which could compete with the floral design already in the dress.

Hi there,

We are getting married in Jamaica and while our guest list was well over 100 people, we are likely going to be a group of about 35ish. For us people simply can't afford it, or planned to vacation elsewhere already and there were quite a few preggars! lol! At least five of our guests are expecting, just had babies or will have them right around the time we get married. When we opted to go the destination route we told ourselves that we should be prepared to go just the two of us. We're very thankful for the people that are coming, it means a lot to us and we know it's a lot to ask people, it's a big expense, it's time off work, etc... There are some people who can't make it though we really wanted them there (FI's two best men), so that's a bit of a disappointment but at the end of the day it's out of our control and out of our hands :)

Thanks for your post! A lot of my fam havent been to mexico and are scared to go, they would rather go to the dominican or jamaica or bahamas. We are going to an incredibly safe area - Los Cabos. FI and I agreed on this destination and despite the lack of people coming will still continue our wedding planning there. I completely agree with you, we live in a small city and had two drive by shootings, a murder and a baby thrown into a dumpster all within a matter or months! Bad things happen all over the world, even in your own city...even if it ends up being just my fiance and I (and our kids) on the beach with the judge we are still going to do it...just would be nice to have some family there!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
