    Well, I already posted a review of my wedding in the wedding review section. We were married at Couples Swept Away. So I posted about the resort in the Couples and Sandals section.
    So I want to add a bit here for other Jamaica brides about the only vendors we used.

    Sungold Photography - Paula and Damian are a couple based in Negril but will travel to other parts of Jamaica. They were amazing, and fun to work with. We found their prices to be very reasonable. We got over 700 images on DVD and they were with us for 8 hours (including a lunch break). They do lots of weddings at non AI resorts, such as Moondance Villas, Tensing Pen, Rockhouse, etc. I highly recommend them.

    Norma's at Sea Splash resort - We went there for our reception dinner. They have a fabulous venue for small to medium sized groups. There's a private, upper banquet area. It has a thatched roof and open air sides, and overlooks the beach. It's such a perfect tropical setting. We pre-ordered our food off the menu ahead of time. (removed prices and sent to our guest to select) This they suggested, and it made for speedy service. The prices were reasonable and the food was delicious, with lots of selction. We opted not to decorate in the usual wedding fashion, and told them simple flowers on the tables were fine. They still decorated nicely in our theme colours and shells on the table. We hired a steel drum band, but whatever type of music you want, they will arrange it for you. I recommend this place. They're right on 7 mile beach, just down from Couples Swept Away.
    Only thing is that it would be too small for a larger group. I did also talk to Carey at negril Escape. Of course I don't know how good it is, but he was wonderful about giving me options and pricing. The venue looks stunning right on the cliff edge, and they will do the full blown wedding reception deal right down to chair covers and all, for bigger groups.
    I found that other places, like Rockhouse, would only reserve us tables amongst everyone else. Other cliff resorts only did receptions for their own guests.

    Floral Fantasy - Although we went through the resort for our flowers, this is the florist Couples uses in Negril. I wanted orange toned flowers, so I was out onto their website where I could look at options well ahead of time. I also talked to Rosemarie there, and she was so nice and helpful. If you need a florist in Negril, check them out.

        +1 on the restaurant. I think my clients had 50+ people upstairs, and yes it was very crammed, however it's such a beautiful place! The atmosphere is so peaceful and serene! The guy Nick that works there actually designed everything himself, and REALLY likes when you tell him the flowers look gorgeous!

        I have to agree with you about Floral Fantasy as well. They have such beautiful arrangements! They were there for hours setting up for this!
