  1. We've been married for almost 2 weeks! We got back last Thursday and we love Jamaica! Congrats Jamaica brides! User Name: futuremrsp Name: Sarah and Tom Location: Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Wedding Date: April 2nd, 2009 We were there from Mar. 30 to Apr. 9th in JA: 7/8/09 - 7/15/09
  2. Hey Everyone! We are back from our 10-day Wedding and Honeymoon at SGOR! We had an amazing time! I am so happy we went with Sandals for the wedding and for this extended vacation; we had such a positive experience. I am in the process of writing my review, but it is lengthy, lol, so I will need a bit of time to finish. In the meantime, I thought I would post my pictures for anyone who is interested. I found it a bit difficult to post pictures directly to the thread, so I hope it is okay that I posted Facebook links. You don't need to have a Facebook account to view the pics. Just copy and paste the links below into a new browser window. Let me know if there is any problem viewing the links or if this is a forum no-no. I just hope that sharing my photos can help anyone getting married at a Sandals or SGOR specifically. This first album is some of the pics that the Sandals photographer took of our ceremony, reception, and then around the grounds and the watersports beach. Our ceremony took place at the Reef Terrace Gazebo location, and we were scheduled for 4:00pm, but it ran a little late (I asked the planner if we could have a civil ceremony, as a Christian ceremony is standard, and they had to call him in especially for our wedding; he called to say he was stuck in traffic, lol). I think we were only about 15 minutes behind, though, but it worked out nicely because we got to enjoy more of the sunset in our pictures. We are pretty easy going lol, and it was only my hubby and I present at the ceremony. Sarah Photos - Wedding: Here's a lil' peek! | Facebook The second album is our Trash The Dress pics, which I am so thrilled with. I got the idea from this forum, and not many people in my area have heard of the TTD movement. I have to say THANKS SO MUCH to the girls on this forum as this was one of the most fun parts of our wedding experience, and family and friends are loving them. My husband is an amateur photographer and he took them with a Canon 40D. When he was in the photos with me, he used a remote control. I know they are not totally professional and he's still photoshopping some of them, but I am so proud of his work and we really loved working together on it. Sarah Photos - Trash the Dress | Facebook I really hope these can be of help and let me know if you have any questions. My detailed review is soon to come!! Official Mrs. P, lol
  3. Thanks so much for all the pics and feedback! We are leaving a week tomorrow...I don't even know how I will get through this week!!
  4. Thanks everyone!! Kerry you must be so excited to leave too! It's been a long winter here so we're especially happy to get there! I'm definitely feeling calm and ready to marry Tom; no problems there, lol, but as far as preparations to get there, I feel like I'm going to forget something really important! I have to rack my brains and make a good checklist for us. There's still a lot to do, but the big stuff is out of the way: the my dress should be finished in the next few days, his pants need hemming, and we need to get our luggage sorted out. We'll probably be packing for days lol. But we got the tickets and I guess if we forget anything we'll just have to go with the flow: as long as we have each other, lol, (corny, I know!) Thanks for listening, ladies...this ranting has actually helped with my list! lol Sarah
  5. Nina told me I couldn't book ahead...it all had to be done onsite
  6. Writing because I'm so excited to go!! Thanks to everyone on the forum for the help and advice! Will anyone be at SGOR when we are? (March 30th-April 9th)
  7. That's so fun! And gutsy! Congrats and best of luck...you'll have a blast in Vegas.
  8. Congratulations! This is the fun part...picking the destination and the resort...best of luck!
  9. Welcome! I know how you feel...mine's April 2nd!! I wish I had found the forum sooner, but glad I'm here now, lol. Enjoy!

    Hi everyone

    Welcome! You'll like it here
  11. Congrats! It's so exciting and the time before will go so fast! I heard Whitehouse is just gorgeous...amazing beach, calm atmosphere. Yay!
  12. My TA had told us we couldn't get a set price on anything more than a year in advance, because of the airlines, promotions, etc. (we then decided to move our wedding up a year, and booked only 5 months in advance!! But it's only the two of us going). We got the 60% discount at Sandals, and are in the 3rd room category (pretty low on the totem pole, lol). It was about $3500 U.S. (a little over $4000 CAN) for the 2 of us. That discount was only for Sandals Grande Ocho Rios. (I think it's still on, but not sure when you have to book by). So yes, about $2000pp.
  13. Anna did you do the river tubing through Sandals? I didn't see it on my list and it sounds like fun!
