JamaicaSukie's Wedding Planning Journal - Iberostar Rose Hall Suites 7/7/12

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody!  I just wanted to post an update.  I've gotten a lot done the last few weeks.  First, I completely rearranged all of my wedding weekend events.  I decided that it would not be fair to my guests to have them get all dressed up only to sweat to death in Aunt Ruby's in July.  So instead my weekend will go as follows:  welcome cocktail party on Thursday from 6 - 8 p.m. in the Lobby Bar if possible; rehearsal dinner at Aunt Ruby's from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. followed by a beach bonfire with reggae band from 8:00 - 10:30 on Friday; ceremony on the beach from 4:30 - 5:00 followed by cocktail hour in the Music Bar from 5:30 - 6:30 and the private reception in Calabash from 6:30 - 10:30 (hopefully a little longer lol) with a DJ and open bar.  We decided to have the reggae band the night before the wedding so that people would (hopefully) really get into the spirit of things and get down on the beach in much more comfortable clothes than they'll be wearing the wedding day.  We are still getting married on the beach though so and giving everyone fair warning so that they can make shoe arrangements (lol).  However, now the ladies can showcase their best heels if they choose without worrying about taking them off the entire time.

 

Now....speaking of shoes...yesterday I found (and purchased) my wedding shoes....I will have to post a pic in the next post because for some reason it's not letting me now.  As a matter of fact, I will continue this post in a new one.

To be continued.....

I also found the perfect add on piece for my dress (I hate the flower the came on my dress).

I also started working on my welcome package in terms of welcome letter, itineraries, things to know, etc.  Please note that I totally borrowed from other brides on this site.  I am not very creative and didn't even know that I should HAVE a welcome letter.  I am trying to go back through all the posts to find the sources of my inspiration so as not to "plagarize".  If any of these look familiar, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.  I created "Do Not Disturb" signs; brochures listing the hotel's main amenities, the itinerary for the whole weekend, and a thank you to our bridal party and guests; a "things to know" sheet with little tips about the weekend (i.e. - please use the cups provided in the OOT bag to identify yourself as part of our group, details they need to know about the rehearsal dinner and party, etc.); a "wedding day" itinerary; and a welcome letter.

I also found a great tote bag from discountmugs.com for the OOT bags.  I anticipate needing about 30 (I per room, not one per person) so I will probably be paying $4.99 per bag but that's still the cheapest I could find for the quality.  I am still strying to find a similar bag in brown (for the men) but if I can't find it this is what I will be going with.

That's all I've got so far.  Hope to update again soon.  Any questions, let me know.  :-)

Hi, i read on another thread where you wrote about reggae bands to hire in montego bay. Im getting married at the hilton rose hall resort and spa on 16th may 2013. I seen you said the front page band are good but i cant seem to find anything about them. Would you mind to send me any information you have if its not too much hassle, possibly songs/playlistetc or if they have a website? Many thanks Angela
