We were married last saturday and it was AWESOME! i can't wait to post all of the details and the photos with you.
For those of you with your wedding coming up let me say this... don't sweat the small stuff. I redid my seating chart 1000 times and i had cancellations the day of and additions up to the hour before. (Seriously, who does that??) But in the end, ppl will sit where they want to sit anywyas and they will make friends if they don't know someone and they will be up and about anyways. I was planning and setting up things the way I wanted them right up until an hour and half before my ceremony. Whoever said that things will go differently but not wrong on your wedding day was 100% correct. Nobody knows anything different and if they do, who cares. Enjoy your day and remember to live in the moment because once it's all done you can't do it again.
We got our photos back and my hubby took one look at them and said he wishes we could do the day again because he had such a blast. Looking forwad to getting the video now.
It has been wonderful planning with each of you and I think you guys saved me many times through my frustrations, your reminders, and your ideas. I'm still in Jamaica and loving every minute of it. For anyone having a Jamaica wedding, please don't hesitate to contact me with your questions or concerns. Your day will be blessed as each of you are :-)
JA2012, I couldn't agree with you more!! Congratulations dear!!!! It was wonderful planning with you and all the other May ladies! I had no idea but we were in Montego Bay at the same time you were there getting married!! lol, we were on our honeymoon at the Sandals Royal Caribbean What a completely awesome experience ....and seriously if I could go back now and not stress over the tiny small details so much then I probably would have taken in even more on that day. I remember waking up the morning after and looking at my hubby and saying...I so wish we had been guests at our wedding LOL... We both said we would love to wake up and do the day all over because it was PERFECT!!!... any honestly I can't even tell you about all those little details, all I know is that every one of our guests and by standers and the staff working our dinner/reception were loving every min of the wedding, and I had people emailing , talking and raving about how it was the most intimate wedding and the best wedding they had been too .....makes all the stress, drama, and pre-wedding crap all worth it int eh end. Once I got to that resort everything was "irie" as they say in Jamaica Absolutely the best time of my life.
Advice for any new Brides....don't sweat the small stuff, nothing is going to go exactly as planned but it WILL BE the most perfect day even with any differences. Step back and take it ALL in, because it really does fly by ....
Thanks to all the lovely ladies on this forum for sharing, supporting and understanding ....it was wonderful to have such great people to go through this experience with
