@FutureMrsGlover  We're looking at the family RIU because we will most likely have a few children attending the wedding, otherwise I would have Secrets Wild Orchid on the list!  We stayed there a few years ago and loved it. 

 

I will definitely let you know how we like the Royalton, I'll take and post pics.  It looks gorgeous, and the reviews on TripAdvisor have been getting better and better since they opened. 

 

Thanks!!  Looking forward to finally picking a resort and getting the save the dates out.  Exciting times for all of us!  :)

    Cool ideas.... Good Luck and Congrats. Please post some pics when you come back.  I'm sure your wedding is going to be awesome!!!

     

    good morning ladies, although I am not  a 2015 bride, I  am however a Jamaica bride(we girls gotta stick together no matter what year) lol. My wedding is June 7, 2014 at Sandals Whitehouse. we were able to do sandals, because we didn't have any children attending so it worked for us. my biggest with them was all the great inclusions that I get/got from them and I truly, truly love , love, love, did I mention I love the property.Because they also have a themed night every night, it also gives my guest lots of things to do onsite and slop party everynight on resort.Since I'm so close I'm pretty much done with everything. if anyone needs any help/ideas, let me know, i'll do all I can. for my gifts/favors I did several things.  for my pre wedding dinner, I'm giving a gift bags(custom kraft bag) inside I did double wall tumbler with custom label on it, inside tumbler I'm putting margarita pack with custom label on it. I'm giving key card holder with lanyard, a thank you card, a custom cd, and I made door hangers,one side says "please do  not disturb, we are resting for trevor and Kellie's wedding, flip side "please do not disturb we are recovering from Trevor and kellie's wedding". On the table for reception I did message in a bottle thank you's.


    Happily Ever After, 

     

    They all seem great and very professional.  Have you made your decision yet? lol.  Yeah, the candle will burn out, or they use the jerk sauce and toss the bottle. lol.  As long as it is something nice and inexpensive, its a win-win in my book.  

     

    Have you started looking for your dress?  

    WOW 

     

    The candle idea sounds so  beautiful. Such a good idea and something that will last too. (well until they burn it out!) Thanks for the groupon tip too, didnt know that. Im really excited. I just want it to be so perfect and intimate and I have done loads of research on vendors. However I am stuck with who to use to capture the event in HD. Im stuck between

    Hi Francine, Hi Pamela. How's all the planning coming along?????
    I have not made a final decision on who i will use yet to do the Cinematography. At the moment i want to gather up all my prices to see where my budget stands. I really can't go over budget. But if all goes well. Reynaldo Martin will be the cinematographer i use to capture my day. Have you looked at his work? It's a lot like Elite Media Concepts but cheaper. He is my favourite so far.

    Francine as for my dress I'm on a serious weight loss programme lol. I have been looking at Jasminesbridalshop.com as they make replica designer dresses and other brides who have used them on this website give rave reviews about them and the prices are very reasonable. I think I will go with them. I really want to try a blush coloured wedding dress!

    Hey HappilyEverAfter!

    No worries on the auto predictor! ;)

    I'm booking elite media...I think I might book a DJ through them too!

    I'm having a VERY hard time deciding on a photographer though!

    Who are you going with??

    He Pamelas21 Elite Media is a great choice. The package is good with the DJ but for me the dj time is too short. I know you can get more hours but the cost I can't justify. My h2b is Jamaican so he promised to sort thst out.

    For my photography I'm going with the AMAZING Zuluspro Photography. Phenomenal artistic photographer and absolutely at the top of his game in artistic approach. There were others bit there to generic for me. There are so many Great ones. Who's on your shortlist?

    Your Welcome hun, all the above are good. I wanted to try Dean Clarke but he only books a year in advance, If I didnt get Zuluspro, I would have held out for Dean. Chris of Zuluspro sealed it for us. It all depends on the type of look your going for.

     

     

    Check out this link on you tube. I love his artistry. Im excited. I am doing Engagement, Wedding, TTD and a Boudoir shoot but with more sexiness (classy sexy) with him. Im so excited.
