I am so sorry for my delayed review. Post wedding I didnt want to think about anything other than basking in the Jamaican sun with my brand new sexy hubby! Then work and life and ish happens and before I knew it its the end of January and I haven't done my wedding for my 10.26.2013 nuptials.
In spite of my extreme tardiness I have to be certain to pay it forward and give back to BDW what it gave to me. Planning a wedding is a daunting task and planning a destination wedding compounds the stress. This website has helped me tremendously throughout the planning process. It has been my go to resource for almost everything I have desired, lusted over, needed and didn't want to be bothered with.
I want to give special recognition to all the ladies with super-detailed posts, planning threads and wedding reviews. I know you are also many of the same extraordinary women who DIY'd and created elaborate welcome bags and such. Thank you for giving me inspiration and thank you all for participating in the wonderful sanctity of marriage.
Special Shout out to Dani Scales. That phone convo helped me more than you will ever know!!!
May you all be blessed within your marriages forever!
I'm going to try and keep this somewhat concise.
My husband and I met a club, dated for about 2 years and he proposed 12.22.2012 in Chicago, Illinois. It was one of the most special days of my life.
After short contemplation we decided to get married in Jamaica. My parents, husband and I vacationed at Iberostar Grand in the summer of 2012 and absolutely feel in love with the place. What a divine dream of a resort. We knew if we ever got married it would NEED to be a this resort.
We sent out e-Save the Dates. That went over fairly well except for the lack of responses, bad email addresses, questions/responses that were previously addressed in the STD and an overall lackadaisical attitude towards deadlines and such. Ehhhh, I guess that is to be expected!
We bought new luggage and brought about 8 bags total. I stuffed my dress in my carry-on and he did the same for his suit.
We missed our flight had to pay an exorbitant amount of money for another (Southwest eventually refunded the entire trip- it wasnt our fault)
In any event, we eventually arrived in Montego Bay and the hotel was just as I remembered. I LOVE THAT RESORT!
Included below are some specific reviews on vendors and then I'll let the photos do the talking.
If anyone has any specific questions please message me. Ill be checking intermittently.
