Destination Wedding Jamaica: A Perfect Wedding and Vacation!Words by Courtney Kellar
“The majority of our family and friends were excited about the idea of going on an all-inclusive vacation to Jamaica,” said the couple. “There were a few family members that were not thrilled, however, we sold them on the idea of an unforgettable, all inclusive, once-in-a-lifetime vacation, which made it easier for them to join us.”
“Most of the issues [with our vendors] was with communication and understanding our desires. We visited the site and vendors prior to our wedding, which aided in resolving issues we had and any issues in the future.”
If the couple can give any advice to future brides and grooms it would be to just take time to enjoy the entire wedding planning process. This is a once in a lifetime event, and you truly want to cherish every second. Other things like, staying on top of your vendors, creating a wedding website and taking on some do-it-yourself projects were some important recommendations made by the couple.
“Create a wedding/engagement website and include all the information needed for traveling so all guests can refer to the website rather than always contacting the couple, this will help relieve an immense amount of stress and repetitiveness,” they said. “I also suggest trying some do-it-your-self projects, it helps cut cost and it’s a great way to bond with your future husband before your special day.”
In the end, everything worked out and their wedding was truly their very own fairy tale. Personal touches like making homemade save the date/invitation “passports,” straw fans spiced up with ribbons to be used at the ceremony and a one-of-a-kind bouquet holder for the bride were all things which helped create a unique experience for everyone.
“Our family and friends really enjoyed the time they all spent together…” the couple said. “We are constantly being told that it’s the best wedding they have ever been to and I truly believe that the wedding being destination played a momentous part in that compliment.”
