New to this site but in need of help!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I just signed up today! After reading so many posts and having no idea what I am doing, I was convinced that I needed to join. My fiance and I have been looking into having a destination wedding for a few months now. We started with St. Lucia, Aruba, Punta Cana and Jamaica. We have decided with Jamaica since I have family there and its where a lot of people have been. However, I have quite a few options and don't know what to choose or how to plan a wedding, let alone a destination wedding. Someone please help! I have also been trying to find a TA, any suggestions?

Welcome!


Having recently gotten married in Jamaica, I can tell you great choice!  As to the details I would say your next action is to decide on a resort (if you are thinking all inclusive) or a venue for your wedding and reception.  Once you decided on a resort/venue contact a wedding planner from there and book a date.  After that they will help you and guide you through the planning!  Good luck!

I agree with JayKay. I am in the process of planning a December wedding in Jamaica. The most important things is don't get stressed. I choose 3 resorts and weighed the pros and cons of each, contacted all the wedding planners with questions and then decided on one. Then we booked the day of the wedding. Once that is booked you can talk with the wedding planner. Most wedding planners like to finalize things once you arrive there. It sounds scary but I have heard that the process is relaxing and the weddings turn out beautiful.

 

Happy Planning

    • 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.
