Felicia's "New" 11.11.12 Montego Bay, Jamaica Wedding Planning Thread!! (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

My name is Felicia (Nikki) and I live in Ohio. My fiance, Brett and I will be getting married at the lovely (so I have heard) Iberostar Rose Hall Beach Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica on November 11, 2012!!

 

Brett and I have been engaged since 2008 but wanted to take our time planning our wedding so that we can make sure we have it the way we want it. Brett has a beautiful 7 year old daughter that lives with us named Mari. I have been in her life since she was 1 so as you can imagine, I feel like she is my own. You may see her and my niece Chaniyah throughout the thread as well :)

 

I have seen so many great ideas on BDW on how to make our day special and have decided to start a Thread so that I can have all of my ideas and suggestions in one place.

 

Feel free to ask any questions and/or suggest anything you can?

 

Congrats to all of the brides of the past and future!

 

Now to the good stuff... I have another planning thread that I had started when our wedding date was going to be in November of 2011 and our wedding colors were going to be Turquoise and Purple. After pushing our wedding date out a year (for multiple reasons) we decided to change our wedding colors to Fuchsia, Orange and Yellow. It just feels more caribbean! The purple was bringing our decor down in our opinion.

 

I have started a shutterfly account with pics of the planning for friends and family that won't be able to make it to Jamaica to see. I doubt they will be coming to bdw.com if they are not planning a destination wedding :) I will also load the pics here for your thoughts and inspiration.

 

Here is the link:

There is also a blog on there too!

 

On with the pics of ehat we have so far!...First up...Me and My "Boo Thang" A.K.A. Beefcakesmile03.gif...and Mari!

Here is my dress...I always envisioned something flowy so this dress from Alfred Angelo is perfect. Now that I have over a year to the big day I plan on loosing a significant amount of weight so stay tuned for a before an after comparison in the same dress :)

Here is the drawing from the designer that is making my bolero jacket that I am having made for it. However, if I reach my weight goal then I may just have a one shoulder strap of flowers added to it.

Here is a pic of my fiance's suit. The groomsmen will just be wearing matching pants with a white shirt while Beefcake wears the entire suit including the jacket. We got these from JCPenny. It is a Stafford linen look suit. It is really light and perfect for a beach wedding!smile123.gif

I purchased 96 of these lanterns from emerald0130  in the classified section.

 

Ladies please do not sleep on the classified section, they have some great deals! The sizes of these range from 16"-30" and I got 96 of them for $100...If I had gotten them brand new I would have paid a lot more!

About 2 weeks before we leave for the wedding, I will be mailing our guests Pre-Travel Brochures, 3-4 luggage tags and a Jamaica Travel Guide that I got free from the Jamaican Tourist Board.

 

I made these Pre-Travel Brochures on vistaprint.com. Here are the proofs

Everything looks great! You have done quite a bit of planning and you still have a ways to your big day. Once everything is all planned and you still have so much time before your big day, what else do you do work on? (I ask because I have done quite a bit of planning also, and aside from just waiting until the big day, i don't know what else to do! Lol) Congratulations and happy planning!!

I will probably focus on how I am going to get all this crap to Jamaica safely. But other than that I am just going to try to relax. When we were still having our wedding this November, I had a lot of sleepless nights filled with anxiety so I am just going to try to chill and wait for the big day to get here.

After searching for just the right dresses for my bridesmaids, I have decided to go with a convertible dress...

 

Here is the stock photo of the dress my girls are going to get and a few of the different ways they can wear it...

 

If you google them you can find they are very inexpensive. I found this one on amazon.com :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
