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

Recommended Posts


So finally back for a couple weeks, got pro pics and I am excited to write my planning journal! Thank you to everyone off this site who shared templates and ideas. As a wedding planner I knew exactly what I wanted and without a DIY bone in my body ebay, etsy and other brides from this site were PERFECT for my destination wedding. I hate anything DIY. I hate going to Michaels and searching through bins and I would much rather pay someone to do it for me :) I love planning other weddings and I love my job, I just really didn't want to do it for my own.. crazy right? So I'll get started.. most of my stuff was made on Etsy or purchased from a store. I will be happy to share sellers if you pm me! How we met and our engagement session.. We actually met in college 10 years ago :) I was partying too much so I was forced to go home and finish school near where I grew up, haha. So we actually lost contact for 4 years. I had a failed marriage, he a failed engagement and while I was working a wedding for a friend of his we just happen to run into each other again and the rest was history :) We got married here in VA, just the two of us and two kids later after I decided to take time away from work and I started planning my dream wedding.. (Sorry the pics are so big) 180704_10150112824436313_500281312_6312409_547157_n.jpg 20043_317282466312_500281312_3559242_99147_n.jpg The Rings.. To make a long story short.. I am very picky and indecisive.. The first set didn't fit my personality, the 2nd set I loved the eternity band but it didn't fit flush next to the engagement ring and it bothered me....  So this was my 3rd and final set, and I love them.  291292_10150292326956313_500281312_7799122_2117940_o.jpg The Resort: We are regulars at Atlantis in the Bahamas so I wanted something similar to that island but somewhere we had never been. So with a friend who had just gotten married at this resort, I did some research and we found the Gran Bahia Principe. My top reasons: Free food and alcohol and I can bring my own photographer!! resort.jpg Save The Date Magnets we sent out in January STD.jpg My Stuff.. I loooove Amsale so I knew I wanted her Bijou dress but HATE strapless dresses (thanks to the DD's) so I took Amsale dresses and added the top to my favorite Bijou.. Dress 1.jpg Dress 2.jpg FINAL- LOVE and sooooooo worth the money!!  305785_10150326585041313_500281312_8014892_1201331700_n.jpg Here's all my other stuff: Had to wear sparkly Louboutins!

    • 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?
