October 2012 Brides!!!

Recommended Posts

Oh we'll be there on the 16th too!!! Most of our guests are coming on the 18th though. YES, the photographer put us waaay over but I soooo loved him that I had to do it. And I really want to do something special too and give guests an opportunity to get away from the resort, as a group. I figure we were already over, so there's a LOT of overtime and cutting out of 'extras' until October to make up for this 'bump' in the budget. And I think we'll def be cutting down on the OOT bag stuff (which I am completely obsessed with). Then b/c of this site I'm totally DIYing more than I thought so that should save too (although I'm completey sure I'll find a way to sneak more into OOT bags if $ frees up) LOL

Hi! I'm an October bride as well. We're getting married at the Riu Ocho Rios in Jamaica on October 6th and we're super excited!! I already got my dress; in fact I got it at a bridal blow out sale two weeks after getting engagedcheesy.gif (nope I just couldn't wait). Tonight, I'm going with my sister who is my MOH and my oldest niece who will be a BM to look at dresses. So that should be fun.

My fiance and I are still looking for a photographer and have it narrowed down to 3 we really like but I hope to have it finalized real soon.

 

But congrats to all my fellow October brides!!

Welcome BluJaye & Skygirl  and CONGRATULATIONS!  Beware - the site is extremely addicting!

 

BluJaye - I adore Ocho Rios! It's so beautiful. Did you find dresses for your bridal party?

 

Skygirl - I don't know how you (and Katelyn) do it. I can barely focus on work with the wedding and you have work, school, family, etc... But then maybe that's just my focusing problem.... LOL

@teamboyd. Yes, this site is really addictive. It helped me a lot. Well, i booked in oct 2011 and made my STD, now im dress shopping. And the airline just came out from BOS-PUJ, and it makes me go crazy. so $$$ $650. so im kind of nervous, i know it will go down, but when u have a lot of people who is waiting on me to say BOOKIT, makes me sick...

Aaaahhhhh! I am so not ashamed to say I was STALKING the Jet Blue site yesterday waiting for the extended schedule! LOL

 

In the grand scheme of things, I don't think the $600 (617 from NY)  is too crazy (and it will go down). Looking at airfare before the schedule was extended all the flights out of NY were $450-500 (very reasonable) and had a 2-4 hour layover. So I think most ppl would be happy to pay the additional 50-100 extra each way in order to get there in less than 1/2 the time and not have to worry about transfer of luggage or planes. But this is just my opinion....

Sky - I fully believe that it'll be right around $500 (hopefully less)  but as they just extended the schedule on Sunday they're going to try to get highest price possible. I'm confident over the next few weeks/months the airfare will go down. But I understand your feeling since I have a couple in my group who have been itching over airfare so I'm stalling even telling them the schedule is open...

It looks like we are all playing the waiting game for air fare. I've seen a drop in the prices for air fare in New Orleans, I'm hoping prices will drop some more. When I first started monitoring rates they were $737 now they have dropped to $676. Prices for Los Angeles and Dallas are still the same, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed we see a significant decrease in the next couple of months.

Hey Ladies,

 

Nassau, Bahamas Bride on board 10/20/2012!  I thank God that I booked our flights when I did because Gas prices are on the rise.  It's gonna be the death of some of our guests, so we may have less than what we are expecting.  plane.gif

    • 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?
