    This wedding looks awesome! I always get great ideas from every planning thread, and I KNOW I'll be borrowing some ideas from this one! I especially love the idea about having the all white party for the rehearsal dinner or welcome party.  I was thinking about doing it during the wedding, but this sounds even better. This is why destination weddings rock---it really helps you think outside of the box and come up with great new twists on different ideas.

        Thank You!smile03.gif First off… I want to thank all of the past brides for all of the great inspiration and ideas! Tammy, you are genius for creating this and I crown you as the destination wedding GOD!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! My wedding would have been so horrible without this website! When I found BDW, I was in heaven (as I am sure you can all relate)!! Thanks to my fellow grand brides and most importantly, Susan and Leah for sharing such a wonderful wedding weekend and helping be get through the tough times of planning! Thank you BDW… YOU ROCK!!! Engagement We got engaged at the wonderful Iberostar Grand Rose Hall in Montego Bay Jamaica in 2010 on our 5year dating anniversary! As soon as we got engaged we both knew we wanted to have a destination wedding!! Here is a link to my engagement thread: http://www.bestdesti...ment-10-27-2010 Rings My fianc© did a fabulous job picking a unique ring I absolutely LOVE!! Since it is a different shape, no wedding bands fit flush to the engagement band, and I was not really happy with having a gap between bands. SO lucky me… custom wedding band was the only option. I was happy with getting only one band to accent my engagement band but my dear hubby insisted on getting two so it matched on each side (what a sweetheart)! For his band he wanted a little bling, since he is not a real jewelry person he figured he should go all out on the one piece of jewelry he will wear. Here is a picture of our rings together on our wedding day and one in action on our honeymoon.  700 400 The Resort After lots of resort, site visits, and review reading we decided to have our wedding at the one and only, Iberostar Grand Rose Hall in Montego Bay Jamaica. This is were we got engaged and after seeing other resorts in person we thought it would be best go back to our first love of the Iberostar. It is an ABSOLTELY AMAZING resort, wonderful customer service, fabulous grounds, delicious food, and a down right perfect place to vacation, so we knew it would be an easy sell to our guest!  400 400 Lucky for us, since we were returning guests, we were upgraded to the presidential suite for our wedding night, Friday, and the remainder of the weekend! We sure were living large, oh I just LOVE that place!!! Here are some pictures, though the do not do it justice… 400 400 400 400 400 400 400 400 The DRESS Essence of Australia D1241… I am in LOVE with it to this day and love to admire it from time to time! It was a perfect dress for a destination wedding; it had the glam that I wanted but comfy and lightweight, without having to compromise my vision. My Dress on the BIG DAY! 700 When I said Yesssss To The Dress:love: 700 Day of Groom Gear & Bride Accessories GROOM GEAR When it came to my hubby picking out what he was going to wear, he went in with an exact idea of what he wanted. He wore a Calvin Klein Grey Tux with a custom shirt from Nordstrom’s and silk grey tie from Hugo Boss. 700 VEIL  In the beginning I was not sure if I wanted to wear a veil and the prices at the bridal salon were outrageous. But once I saw one on with my dress, I decided it was a go. I ordered my veil from: http://www.veilubrid...dding-veils.htm It turned out perfect and exactly what I was looking for, fast service, and excellent price. 700 EARRINGS and BRACELET: My Mom and Dad gave me these as a gift. 700

        Everything was simply amazing!! Thanks for your thread! Was Port Maria too warm to dance? How did you and the guest enjoy the bonfire? Would you have paid for the Presidential Suite (I'm considering it, but I hear that it's an extra 1,000 dollars)? If there was thing that you provided for your guest which would you say was more appreciative?
