I am getting married at Beaches Boscabel in Ocho Rios, and my family and friends will be staying at Beaches Boscabel, Sandals Dunns River, and Sandals Grande Ocho Rios.
I would love to hear any advice or experiences anyone had there.

Thanks

    Welcome! Glad to see we've got another Jamaica bride on here! How big is your wedding? Have you done most of the planning already?

      I got married there in Ocho Rios this last July. It was wonderful there. We stayed at Couples resort. From the airport it is about a 2 hour drive and the roads are awful. Or they were when we were there. If you get a chance to go to Dunn's River Falls go. It was awesome! Got any particular questions just ask and I will try to answer them.

      I went to Jamaica when I was 8 and I loved Dunn's River Falls. I remember the roads being terrible and the taxi right was really scary. I think there is a shuttle for Sandals and Beaches, so hopefully that will be better than local transportation.

        I am getting married at Sandals Dunns River in May 07 and my guests are staying at either Dunns River, Grande Oche or Beaches. My sister got married at Grande Oche a few years back and loved it. We have only had 2 people reserve their room so far, but our invitation will go out next week, so we shall see. Alot of folks have said that it costs to much or are scared to go to Jamaica for some reason. So we will be doing a party when we get back to celebrate with those who could not make it.

          yes I love wedding window. I love how your what's new pops up. Did you know you can add three songs now and it won't be a pop up, it will display at the bottom of your site.

            Really, I didn't know that. How can I add the three songs? I would love to do that because a lot of people's pop up blockers block the song.

            I think you just go into the music section and upload two more songs and then it automatically changes it. I will double check with my FI-he is in charge of website.
