I have been out of the loop lately and not been on this forum. I booked with Merrick Cousley for my photography. Heard great things about him from the 2012 and prior posts. So far he's been great. Booked with DJ Kevan. Finally going dress shopping after christmas for me and my girls. I'm in contact constantly with Sharlene, who actually answers questions so if someone needs pictures or answers. I may have them because I have bugged her about everything including prices for outside vendors, outside guests, pics for restaurants, places, all menus, rehearsal dinners, and etc. For people that are getting married soon, what did you do for tuxedos/suits? Did your guys rent them or did they have to buy them? We are having the hardest them finding a place because everyone wants their suit back the next day. Since we are in Jamaica that is not happening. Suggestions????? And I love the pier 1 idea for centerpieces, I will look into that. I'm sure the January wedding will be absolutely beautiful!!!!!

Hey Ladies,

I'm wondering what everyone is doing for a seating chart or place cards for the reception. Is anyone making a seating chart and taking it down? I've been debating just having a favours table and seating cards attached to the favours that directs them to their table. Thoughts?

CourtBestBride---I asked the WC about a seating chart and she told me that I can just decide on it when I get down there.  She did tell me that if we were to do round tables that they seat 8 people comfortably (this is in the Blue Lagoon).  Keep me posted with what you find out, your wedding is coming up very soon :)

I dont think that I am going to do a seating chart.  We have 48 people and Im just going to do a head table then let everyone sit with who they want so it will be one less thing to have to travel with.

I have a seating chart template for the blue lagoon. We did 7 round tables with 8 people...set up lkind of like how the 5 looks on a dice and then 2 more at the top on either side for our parents tables. Worked out perfectly. Most of your planning and finalizing will takeplace when u get there.

Hi future brides!

 

My fiance and I have booked GPLH for april 2014, we thought we were being very proactive booking so far in advance, seems not to be true. We just heard back from our travel agent and he is saying with 15 months until the wedding, there are only 6 regular rooms left and our guests will now have to book the the upgraded rooms that start at $40 more per couple. We don't understand how there can be a shortage of rooms so far in advance, the only thing we can think of is our travel company has only booked a small number of rooms with the resort and they are filling up? If anyone has had similar issues, or knows of a travel company that may hold a larger number of rooms, as we are hoping to have 50-60 guests. If anyone knows which other travel companies book at GPLH, that would also be helpful. Thanks in advance

    • 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.
