    Hi guys!

    i just wanted to post real quick that my hard drive went out on me yesterday so it may be awhile before I can post any more pics. They are not lost (I am so grateful for that!) but I need to get a new hard drive and also see what I can recover from the old one.

    Hi Bridgette! The regular free bouquet is carnations and can come in whatever color's you want.

    I saw some of the wedding photographers pics from the various resorts and they looked great. Quite honestly I would go with a photographer- at my wedding (at home) we tried the same route and quite honestly the pics just weren't that great and I have regretted not spending the money ever since. Plus my guests who took the pics weren't in any and didn't have as much fun.

    Welcome Mrs R2Be! If you want help just PM me.

    As soon as I can I'll post more pics. I am also coming up with a referral contest so keep an eye out for that!

      Thanks guys... I'm already in love with this borad...

      TA Jennifer... do you have any pics of the new river suties in on SN... I'm staying in a loft suite and i want to see what they look like... I've seen some pics on the website, of the downstairs but i would love to see what the upstairs looks like. Do you think you could help me out.... A firend of mine told me that they always upgrade you to a better room when you get there... Is that ture?

        This is exactly what I am worried about! I want my guests to have a good time too and be in the photos. I will take your advise and book them tonight! This is just crazy. I leave 2 weeks from today! I spent close to the last year counting down the months. Now it is weeks and soon will be days! Holy cow!

              Hey Mrs. R2be!

              I have pics (I hope that I can recover those, they were from my December visit....my hard drive died) of the River suites ( I was really lucky that one was available, my visit was right between when one guest left and the next was due to arrive : ) !)- when we were there the suites on the second floor were all booked. However they told us that the second floor suites were primarily identical to the first floor swim out suites.

              As far as upgrades....Sandals Negril usually runs at a really high occupancy level which makes upgrades hard to come by. If there is availabilty most often they will upgrade the brides & grooms first- it's just that quite often there isn't availability!

                Thanks TA Jennifer. But probably my favorite part about our wedding...there will be no guests! :) But, I'll keep you in mind in the future.

                How about the Grande is it often that bride and grooms get upgraded there? Any advice or anything you have to offer is greatly appreciated!

                  Wife 2 be-

                  The Grande is another resort that usually has high occupancy levels- I always advise to book the room category that you want and if you get upgraded great- if not your still happy!

                  The swim up suites are the only ones that tend to get upgraded- that's because there are only a few of them and they can get overbooked sometimes. Often the couples do not want the upgrades from the River Suites though!!

                  The Beachfront Rondavel rooms are amazing-if you can splurge on those you won't be disappointed!

                    Ahh if we get upgraded, we do and if not I am really okay with that. My priorities were with spending money elsewhere rather than in the room we won't be in much. And I understand with the renovations that all the rooms are pretty nice anyway. I was just curious-thanks!

                      Hello everyone! We are eloping.. yup just the two of us and we booked SGOR for this November!! I am very thankful for this site.. and others. they have given me so much information. A destination wedding was our best decision ever... and because it's only the two of us.. setting this up should be a breeze! (I hope) haha. We won't have too much for the wedding co-ordinator to do. I was lucky to squeak in and get my bouquet, my grooms bout. and a flower for my hair booked in time through Angel's. I wanted something I can keep.

                      As for photos, I've heard they will just snap photos of you anyways, and you get to pick some if you want. I think $200 to put them on a cd is crazy, but may have to do this.

                      We are booked into the Plantation Villa/1br suite with private pool and patio. We wanted the Romeo and Juliette suite but is was gone. We wanted our own pool!!! We have the butler service so the wedding ceremony etc. is included. The only things i need to spring extra for is the photos. Sorry, but I just can't book $1200 pic. package. Ouch!

                      Look forward to hearing more from all of you!!
