How did you arrange an off premise ceremony? Was it difficult? There are a lot of us from PA! I live right outside Philly in Delaware County...Don't know Lancaster very well, except for the outlets! Rachel Sorry I haven't been on here in a while. It was amazing! We didn't want to come back! We only stayed the one week at Sandals Negril. Two weeks would have been great but not in our budget. I am going to post a review that will hopefully be helpful to anyone going there when I get a chance. It wasn't hard to do the off resort wedding, I found a good wedding planner who made everything wonderful. Jamaica Wedding Planner, Negril Wedding Planner, Weddings in Jamaica, Destination Weddings, Wedding Planner in Jamaica, Getting married in Jamaica, Wedding in Jamaica That is her website Dawn Sherman was who I dealt with. I told her our budget and she took care of everything. I will work on getting some pics on here. I do have a few on facebook if you are on there?
  2. I recently got married in Jamaica, May 4 2010. We stayed at Sandals Negril but got married off resort. I am so glad we did! It was much more private and I wasn't rushed through anything. We also got to have a later sunset wedding. The wedding I had contacted was Dawn Sherman. She did a great job and made everything the way I wanted it. She also came to the resort the day after we got there and went over everything with us. I was able to have my father walk me down the isle and our son was the ring bearer. The pictures came out wonderful and we got some awesome sunset pics.

  3. We are going to Sandals Negril in May. We are having our wedding off resort through a WC in Jamaica. After all the extra expenses for the "free" wedding at Sandals it wasn't much more to do it off resort. And we think it is much more personalized for us. We are also getting a true sunset wedding.

We considered Beaches for them, as it is right next to the Sandals, but then they would only be allowed one day pass to join us for the wedding, and the other 4 days they are in Jamaica, they would have to stay on the Beaches property, or we would have to meet them off the resorts. We wanted both of them to enjoy time with us through the week, not just the day of the wedding, so they opted to share a room, as friends, at Sandals. Sandals Negril would have let them have their own rooms, but they didn't want to pay double occupancy. Hope this helps We are getting married in Negril also in May! I haven't seen a lot of ppl on here that are going to Negril. We are staying at Sandals but getting married off resort. I am also from PA
  5. We are going to Sandals Negril in May for our wedding. I have a few concerns I am hoping someone can help me with. Originally my brother and sister in law were coming also and staying at Sandals. Things have since changed as they split up. So now he is coming but not her. He is staying at a cheaper hotel on the cliffs in Negril and bringing a friend. 1. I had already booked a canopy tour for my brother and sister in law for when we are going on the tour also. Can he get a day pass and him and his friend still go on the tour? 2. Can he purchase day passes for all the days to come to our resort? And what are the time limits on the day passes? 3. Can he purchase a day pass for Beaches Negril since we are planning on going out there after our sunset ceremony since we have other guests and a child staying at Beaches? 4. Would anyone know how much it costs to get transport from the cliffs to Sandals? Hope that wasn't too long. Thank you in advance for any help!
  6. Not sure how much I can help, we are getting married at Sandals Negril. They are a bit higher than other resorts but it seems like you get more and we have heard they are very nice resorts. Since it is a couples resort so that is how they charge their rooms, based on two ppl staying and one person in a room has to pay the same amount. I never looked into same sex friends staying there since we have a very small number of ppl coming along. We do have some guests going single and a child. They are staying at Beaches Negril a few minutes away. We are also using a wedding planner outside of the resort and getting married off resort. All the extras at Sandals started adding up and this way it will be more personalized for us.
  7. Well, after everything I have read and looking into other resorts, we are sticking with what we booked. It is getting close now and we are trying to finish up taking care of everything. Only 71 days!
  8. I didn't think about tipping the WC. We are getting married off resort and have a wedding planner handling everything. Should I be tipper her, and how much? We are getting married at half moon beach in Negril. Do I tip the photographer which is included in her package?
  9. I don't know if you have looked into Jamaica but that is where we are going. We wanted to go to a Sandals and chose the one in Negril for the reason of children. There is a Beaches on the same seven mile beach, actually there are two. We were originally looking at the Sandals in the Bahamas but the Beaches close by is what changed our minds.
  10. We are also having a small number of guests, 8 and us. We chose Sandals Negril because of the close proximity of Beaches. We will have one child at the wedding. Also we liked the beach and the couples only for where we are staying. We were originally looking at the Sandals in the Bahamas. Sandals is more expensive than some but this is only happening once, the wedding, and it does include a lot.
  11. As far as I have seen they only allow their photographers. I have heard of ppl getting around this by having a photographer stay as a guest at the resort. Because of this, the expenses for all the extras, and the one per hour wedding, and the limited times, we went with a wedding planner off resort.
  12. We are getting married on Half Moon Beach
  13. We are only having 8 guests at the wedding so we are having a small reception after with champagne, appetizers, and the cake. Then we are all going out to one of the resturants at the resort. We are getting married off the resort also. We are having an AHR also the week after we return.
  14. Thank for the very helpful info chckadee024. I may look into staying there a couple nights also.
  15. We are staying at Sandals Negril also, we picked this resort because Beaches Negril is close by. We have a son and so that was not an option to have no kids since we want him in our wedding. Also there are a couple ppl coming as singles so they are staying there also. My Fiancé's Mom is staying with our son at Beaches. We were originally getting married at Sandals and were wondering also about what to do since our son can only be there for the ceremony and reception. Then I did some research and went with a wedding planner off the resort. We are only paying a little more than we would have for the extras we wanted at the Sandals wedding and getting so much more. We are getting married on half moon beach, having the reception, then we are all going to Beaches to go out : )
