Yay for another Sandals bride! We picked SGOR because of it's size and diversity. Your guests also have the option of going to Sandals Dunns River. We have a very diverse group of ages traveling to our wedding and I thouht SGOR had more to offer than Montego Bay.

Good luck!!

Hello everyone, I posted on here about two weeks because I was going to Sandals Grande Ocho Rios and I was having doubts after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. I would just like to say don't believe everything you read. We were there from 2/8- 2/15 and enjoyed every moment of it, did not want to leave.The resort was very beautiful. It has two sides, the manor and riveria side. There is a jittney and bus service that takes you around the resort. We had a very good time, the only bad was that it rained for two days straight, that's nothing we have control over though.

We got married on Thursday Feb 12, 2009 and it was wonderful. We were wedding stalkers the previous days before...lol...We got to see a wedding at the Roman Gazebo. It was nice but too close to the manor pool, therefore there were alot of onlookers. We also saw a wedding on the Arizona pier, that was also very nice, but many onlookers becuase it was close to the beach. We got married at the Reef Gazebo becuase of it's privacy and beauty. It is located on a cliff that overlooks the ocean. The day was absolutely beautiful, sunny but not too hot. We brought our own flowers and our coordinator Kerry-Ann put them up for us, she didn't have a problem with doing so. We also brought our own supplies and did a sand ceremony. The sand ceremony is free if you bring your own supplies, if not the charge is $100.00. I got my hair done at the Spa and Geneve did a very good job, I told her what I wanted and she did just that. The photographer also did a good job with the pictures. We did an a la carte package and had a a very hard time narrowing down the pictures because they all looked good. The photographers do take nice pictures at the resort but they charge too much money for them.

We didn't do any excursions but we did take a say trip to Sandals Dunn's River. It was a nice resort but I like The Grande better, staff and guests were friendlier, everyone would always volunteer to take pictures of us.

I enjoy my trip and I have no regrets. For all future brides who are going to Sandals Grande Ocho Rios just go with an open mind and you will have a wonderful WeddingMoon. I had a wonderful time, I did not want to leave and hope everyone else has a remarkable experience like me.

It's been great finding this board I've had a lot of my questions answered already but I have a couple more.

 

My daughter is getting married at SGOR on June 9, 2009. She has only reserved the basic $200 wedding for now because we understand that almost all of the other items can be added directly at the resort.

 

Could someone verify that we will be allowed to take our own pictures and video?

 

My daughter would like to get married on the beach. If we do not purchase additional decorations will we not have anything? Not even a arch?

Let's set up a telephone consultation- both properties are quite a bit different!

I am getting married at Beaches Turks & Caicos as far as I know -

you can take your own pictures and videos but they do not allow outside vendors unless you have booked a room for them. 

To have an arch on the beach you do have to purchase it. There are different ones for different prices.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
