        How have you guy's found the planning? I have booked the Dolce Vita for the dinner and reception but that's about it.

        I'm getting nervous, because I feel like I have nothing done!

         

        Hi Staceydale,

         

        Its too bad we will miss you too!  I am travelling the same week as MelB.  Our group is heading home on the 16th but we are off to another resort in Negril!

         

        I have to admit ladies I am having a slight meltdown because I didn't realize that I had to physically send notarized copies of our documents to the hotel.  I thought they could be send by email and we could bring the originals with us.  UGH!  After discovering this my fianc© tells me that his birth certificate is damaged and probably not acceptable.  I should have checked this myself when I originally asked him about it months ago but I mistakenly thought he had it under control lol!!!!  We end up having to rush order his new one which is $65 and are currently waiting for it.  I have sent an email to the wedding coordinators at the resort because I have looked into shipping the documents and everyone says they have to have a physical address not the PO Box that I have.  SO.....if anyone knows the physical address that I send my documents I would really appreciate getting it as you will likely respond quicker than the resort.

         

        Boy I need a Bob Marley shot for sure!!!

              Dena,

               

              I had the exact same problem! No one would send because there wasn't a civic address! I tried everywhere and FedEx was able to do it! They just needed a phone number for the resort when I sent it.

              I sent the package last Thursday and they received it yesterday! The cost was really steep though - $116 - I don't know where you are sending it from but I'm in Newfoundland, Canada, so we I'd say I'm on the high end of the pricing scale.

               

              Good luck!

                We are getting married at 4 and I think we are at Dolce Vita for dinner at 6 ( I think).  We have rented the gazebo that night to have a party too!

                 

                I am in St Catharines but we are flying out of Toronto, what time are your flights.  We are flying Air Canada and we depart at 9:20 am I think.

                  Very nice! We're out around 8:30 I think. Are you having your hair done by the resort and what are you doing for photography?

                    I am having my hair done by Raschel Edwards (I have her booked for all the wedding party).

                     

                    My "cousin" is doing our pictures, or that's what the resort will think lol.  I felt better bringing someone with us and found it a lot cheaper.

                    What are you doing.

                     

                    I definitely think we all need to meet for a drink!

                      Well we went last night and paid our balance at the travel agent!!!! That sucked :( but it is all getting so real now.  I had my shower on the past weekend and got totally spoiled.

                       

                      Oh a good note fianc©s birth certificate came in already so I just need to go get everything notarized and will probably have it sent out by the beginning of next week.
