Cupcake's Jamaica 09-10-11 Planning Journal!

Recommended Posts

Hey Maddy,

Congrats to your daughter! Here are the answers to your questions:

 

There are lots of amazing places along the beach in front of the hotel that don't have guests occupying them. Those were some of our favorite spots. Also, right near the gazebo there is a place where they have the "beach weddings" if you choose to go that route instead of the gazebo that is perfect for pictures.

 

What do you mean by book all details prior to the wedding? Are you talking about the specific wedding details (ie timeline, programs etc)? If so, yes I booked everything with the onsite planner and then when we got there we had a 15-20 minute meeting with her to just nail everything down and bring her the ceremony/reception items I brought from home.

 

Yes, I purchased everything for our guests bags before our arrival in Jamaica. I just had family members pack stuff in their luggage.

 

Hope this helps, feel free to ask any questions you like. Also, there is a GBP forum on this site that has lots of helpful info from other brides too :)

Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions, I really appreciated it.  Were did you have your dinner and where was your reception?  Did you book your music for the reception prior to arriving, who did you use? 

Thank You Again

No problem at all :) Our rehearsal dinner was at the The Grille Steakhouse and our reception dinner was at the Dolce Vita Italian Restaurant. Both were soooo good. I actually used an ipod for the ceremony music and enlisted a family member to work it during that time The speaker system is right off to the side of the gazebo. So if you choose to go that route the person doing her music can most definitely still see and hear the wedding.. It's literally right off to the side of the chairs :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
