    I've been planning my wedding for just under a year. We're happy not to over-do it, which is why we are going to the RIU in Ocho Rios. I keep thinking we should do OOT bags or pay for the extra stuff, but really...neither of us care. We just want to go down there, hop off the plane, fill Chandlynn in on the bizz and enjoy our time together.
    I have been to a wedding on a cruise ship and it was the bare minimum...but it was just perfect.
    We have 30 friends and family who are coming with us. Coordinating that was tragic enough. I know they'll be happy just to be on vacation and share our day.
    Our rehearsal is on Friday...followed by our rehearsal dinner with all of our guests...for us this is enough of a welcome. Anyone who wants to join us, can stay for the beach party. (I don't want to eat up all of their vacation).
    Our wedding is at 1pm followed by drinks at the beach bar while we're getting our pictures taken(our best friends are our wedding photographers). From 3-5 we meet again at the disco for the reception. Dinner is at 6:30. By then, I think most people will be intoxicated enough, so we'll play it by ear.
    Sunday, anyone who wants to, can join us for the catamaran cruise that we booked where we are taking our photographers to "trash my dress" www.trashthedress.com in the falls and the ocean and in the foilage.

    So that's all of it... I've been working on this long enough, I think I'm done. I'm ready to enjoy my day! Heather

        to the forum! Sounds like you've got everything planned out perfectly. So these last 2 months all you have to do is relax and start your countdown to Jamaica!

                    Just wondering if anyone who knows about our resort sees any flaw in our plan (is the beach bar always open? is it near the gazebo? what time does the beach party start? will it all work okay?)
