We will be spending our wedding night in the Deluxe Guest Room Suite at the Ritz Carlton, Atlanta. What I'll be wearing is between me and my fiance! LoL. But I will say it is white, long and flowy, with lace, and it took me a looong time to find something special.
Early the next morning we will be taking a shuttle to the Hartsfield Jackson Airport to be on our way to Jamaica!!!
We booked four nights with Breezes, an all inclusive resort, and got a 5th night free! We will be honeymooning in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Breezes includes everything in their packages: Airfare, unlimited food, unlimited alcoholic beverages, and many activites such as scuba diving, jet skiing, snorkeling, glass bottom boat rides, parasailing, water rafting, tours, etc. And everything was only $1999. Can you believe that? Am I a bargain shopper or what? Being as how the rate was so low, we booked one of their finest rooms (the Oceanfront Suite - bed facing the ocean). However, we don't plan on spending too much time in the room. With free drinks, food, and activities... who would want to?! We depart for our honeymoon the next morning after our wedding night, and my fiance's friend was nice enough to agree to house and doggy sit for us!
Montego Bay, Jamaica:
What I'll be wearing the first day of the honeymoon: My Mrs. (my fiance's last name) shirt. LoL
My babes said he liked the idea of an Obama shirt, so I made this one for him the same time I made mine:
Tees ordered from Customizedgirl.com
Here are actual photo's of both my engagement ring and wedding band. It is literally "one of a kind" specially made just for me!
Rather than the dinner, we will be having a rehearsal lunch immediately following the wedding rehearsal at Olive Garden. It is hosted by the mother of the groom.
My attire for the rehearsal/lunch:
I will be adding a touch of the wedding color (Palm Beach Coral) by placing this rose on the dress:

The groomsmen are wearing two button black tuxedo's with a satin egde lapel by Wilke Rodriguez.
Their vests and ties will be in the Palm Beach Coral color.
I thought it would be cool to tailor my bridesmaids dresses to each individuals personality and body shape. Each bridesmaid loved their dress when going to get fitted! All the dresses are in the Palm Beach Coral color.
My maid of honor's dress is the only long dress (to set her apart from the bridesmaids). The rest of the girls have knee length dresses.
