    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. Beefcake...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!

    Here are Brett's Sexy shoes....we found them at Kohl's for a great price! You know kohl's has the BOMB coupons too!

            OMG!!!! I saw your posts a couple of month's ago and I did not subscribe to this thread nor did I pin the pic. ANYWHOO I was just telling my FI (He is an artist) I want to do something similar for our STD's and I have been RACKING my brain where I got the idea from! Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring me. I hope you don't mind I may hijack this idea for our guestbook cover as well. Thank you again!
