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
October 2012 Brides!!!

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 engaged (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....

honestly i have used jetblue from BOS-PUJ many times at different seasons, and as far as i can recall i it was never more the 500 for direct non stop

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.

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.
