I'll start a new thread for Sandals brides 2009!

I know it's only a few of us left.. Hopefully we will will get some new Sandals brides in '09.

Yes, we are all booked. We just finalized our airfare with Air Jamaica yesterday. I am about to order STD brochures tonight!

This site has been a huge help. Please let me know if I can answer any questions.

Happy New Year!

Hi everyone,

 

I have been on this site before, but never really took the time to read the post. I am leaving on 2/8/09 for SGOR and getting married on 2/12/09. It will be just FI and I therefore it will be a small, simple and short wedding. I don't know if it is because the time is nearing or I am just having some wedding jitters but I am very nervous. I am sometimes having regrets on booking the basic wedding at SGOR because I read that the basic package comes with no kind of decorations. This sucks, but is it real noticeable if you don't do any decorations. I feel like I spent too much money to get nothing. Also any past brides that had their pictures taken, how was the outcome and quality.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated and if any past brides are still active on the board can you please assure me that I haven't made a bad choice in booking SGOR.

I can't comment on the SGOR specifically, but I *can* comment on the free wedding package.

When I started researching a Sandals wedding, I met someone on TripAdvisor that had the free wedding. They DID decorate for her. She got married on this pier thing at the SRB and they strung tulle and some flowery things on both sides of the pier. I've also see pics of the ocean-front gazebo decorated for a free wedding.

It's very simple which is good because less is more! If SRB is any indication, SGOR might do a little somethin'. Unless of course you're getting married at a random spot on the beach, in which case there won't be an arch or anything (because I saw one of those, too).

Amanda also had an upgraded package though. I saw one wedding on the pier while I was at SGOR, and there were no decorations that I can recall. We got married at the Reef Terrace Gazebo and they did not decorate. However, at that location it looked beautiful on its own with the ocean in the background. I have heard some brides say that they allowed them to decorate on their own. If I remember correctly, IrieBride did some hanging orchids herself and used them to decorate the gazebo. Hope that helps!

For all the brides who had their hair done at Sandals did you pay upfront?
We paid for that with CC when we sent all forms in. I received a receipt pd. invoice through email a few days later... This was for Sandals Antigua.

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
