Quick update

So we're just under 4 weeks from W-Day & our to-do list is looking GREAT!
  • our music selections are coming together
  • our entree selections have been sent in and seating chart made
  • transfers have been scheduled
  • centerpieces are done and ready to be packed
  • both of us have our complete wedding day ensembles
  • we have all the clothes we need for our safari
It's all starting to come together thankfully. After a few hiccups in the past week or so, I'm definitely starting to reach my limit and want to be in Jamaica relaxing with everyone we love!

Additional Activities

We finally have a full schedule of activities planned for our guests for the weekend! Friday we will have a welcome dinner. There will be a buffet with pretty traditional Jamaican food as well as a Red Stripe and rum punch bar. This will give everyone an opportunity to meet the rest of the guests and start catching up with old friends. It will also allow us to not go crazy trying to greet all of our guests as they arrive throughout the day.
Sunday we have arranged a shuttle to and from Seven Mile Beach. Guests that choose to will be shuttled to Margaritaville to eat, drink, and explore all that Seven Mile Beach has to offer.

Margaritaville has indoor, outdoor, and beach seating and Seven Mile Beach has many activities, shops, and bars for everyone to explore. We wanted to do something that would appeal to everyone. You can sit in the shade, drink drinks with an umbrella and people watch or you can enjoy all the sun, sand, and surf have to offer or party your face off. We don't care just have fun!

The hotel has also offered to coordinate the transfers from the airport for everyone. I just have to collect all their information and send it along. I used a google form to do this just like I did to collect all the entree selections for the reception.

So far it's going pretty well. 5 responses in the first day.

This information will allow me to group people together that are coming in around the same time and save everyone some money and start the party! The drive is about 2 hours so having company will definitely make the trip go faster! I'm using a google spreadsheet to keep track of all of the information.
