Hello, I just noticed from the DWbrides bio site that we share wedding dates and locations. The only difference is that I am getting married at Beaches and you are getting married at Sandals. Maybe I will run into you in Jamaica! Oh yea, I have a few questions for you also: Where are you with your planning? Will you have bridesmaids and groomsmen? Are you paying to have a reception or will you simply have your guests meet at a restaraunt at the resort since it is all inclusive?

    How exciting a date and location twin!!!!! Congrats!!!!!!  Maybe we CAN get together while in Jamaica. How long are you guys staying and when are you arriving.  We will be there for a week arriving on Thursday.  1. Planning? well...I've got the most  important things taken care of.  My dress, found my shoes yesterday (yay for me).  we have the booked the wedding already and will apply for our passports this Wednesday.   I have decided to send out newsletters instead of STD's... I am currently working on that.  How about you?2. yes to bridemaids and groomsmen. 5 on each side. dresses already picked out and will order them next week. ( hopefully)  What about you and what are your colors?3. We are undecided at this point about the reception.  See the reason why we chose a DW was to cut down on spending. So a private reception for approx 30 people is a little out of the budget.  If we can get everything else taken care of first ( the wedding, our house, AHR) then we can add it on. Have you guys booked your flight yet?

    Yes maybe we can get together when we are there. We are also arriving on Thursday and staying for a week. You are a lot further than me in your planning. I have sent out save the dates but that is about it. I have a dress picked out but have not purchased it yet. My goal for this month is to handle the dress, acessories, and shoes. I am undecided about bridesmaids and groomsmen. I thought I would just not have them but now I am feeling like it is selfish not to have them and am thinking of having some. This is also a decision that needs to be finalized by the end of the month so that they can order their attire by the end of Janurary. We were planning on having a private reception if 20 or less guests are attending. If more guests book, we will just have dinner at one of the restaurants. I have not booked my flight yet because I am waiting on Airtran (Airtran will start flying to Jamaica in February) so that I can compare the rates. I have my passport though. Well, keep me posted about where you are with your planning and I will do the same.
