I wanted a full 4 hour reception with DJ. The prices were for the first 25 people I believe and then it was per person. It was going to be way to much for me to afford. Of course I wanted the most expensive package because it has everything I wanted for my wedding. I did a price comparison to Riu Ocho Rios. I took everything that they offer and compared it to Riu and there was a huge difference in price. My Riu wedding all together should be no more than $5,000. This includes everything I wanted from Tropical Weddings(including the dove release for $150). My reception at the Riu is only going to cost $1000 for 4 hours and that includes the food. I think I made the right choice for me, but it is your day - do what makes you happy!

Tropical Weddings has beautiful locations, it was just to much for my budget!!

I just received a quote from Almarie as well. I picked one of the bigger packages, but know that I will not need all these items. Of those of you who have used Tropical Weddings, did anyone pick a specific package, or is it pretty much normal to have a package customized? My quote was for the :


Royal Romance Package-$4250

All Marriage License Fees

Two Certified Marriage Certificate

All Legal Processing of documents prior to wedding

Bridal Roses Bouquet (fresh garden flowers hand tied)

Maid of Honour Bouquet (Roses)

Bestman Boutonnière

2 Bridesmaid Bouquet (Roses)

2 Groomsmen Boutonnière (Roses)

2 Mothers Corsage (Roses)

2 Fathers Boutonniere (Roses)

1 Flowergirl basket with Petals

1 Pair White Doves for Release at Ceremony

Tropical Wedding Location of your choice

72 Professional Developed Photograph with negatives

2 5X7 Wedding Portrait Photographs

Massage for Bride & Groom

Makeup for Bride

Hairstyling For Bride

Tropical Weddings Souvenir Memento

Music Accompaniment for Ceremony

Personalized On-Site Wedding Coordinator

All Taxes & Service Charges


I was wondering if anyone has feedback on the photographer or videographer used with these packages, or if it is better to select your own. Also, did anyone use the hair/makeup option??


Also, if I do go with Tropical Weddings and Almarie, and I plan on staying at a villa, is it normal to make a site visit with her, or to just visit the site on my own when I make a visit to Jamaica in July?


Any feedback on any of these items is much appreciated!!

Luvtoteach...since I made the original post we've decided to go with one of the resorts on the island. However in my research with Almarie, because we were doing a cruise wedding we wouldn't have been able to do a site visit a head of time. However Almarie is ABSOLUTELY wonderful! I trust her 100%. Unfortunately the only site she had available in Montego Bay didn't mesh with my dream. However with that said I've since then talked to several who have used her sites in other locations (Ocho Rios and Negril) and the photos are breathtaking! One of the girls on this site who previously posted on this thread, Driftaway, used Almarie and was kind enough to answer a million questions I had and even sent photos of her wedding. You might want to talk to her.


Also regarding the package we were going to do the Cruise Package which included everything we needed. Once again because we were arriving via cruise we didn't need the reception piece of things so I never discussed that with Almarie.


I can't stress enough how wonderful Almarie is to work with. She was always prompt about answering my emails and questions. Even after we decided not to go with her she still emailed to check to see how our plans were coming along. To me one of the most important things in a WC is trust. In all my dealings with her she made me feel 100% comfortable which made the process VERY easy!


Good luck!

Thanks so much for this recommendation!! I think I am going to continue to correspond with her and customize a package and see if it can fit into my budget.


Anyone else who has worked with her - I would love a bit more info on the photographer used by Tropical Weddings. Thanks in advance!

I'm really not happy with how the wedding coordinator is handling the wedding plans and am opting to go to this company to do my wedding. I know there is one person in here who has had their wedding with them. Do you have pictures of your wedding to share? I don't want to go over $2000 but I want a reception and a ceremony with them. I like their venues and I wonder if this is goin to be a good way to go. Please help me out with your quotes and pictures if possible..

I just received a quote for customizing the cruise package for 30 guests to include:


transportation from the cruise port to ceremony and back


bridal bouqet

3 bridesmaids bouqets

1 hour of photography

and music (I said either a sound system or a musician, but she did not clarify in the quote)


she quoted me $2835, which I thought was high.
