    Dana-

    Included in the wedding package is your marriage license, which will be signed during the ceremony and valid. You do not need to get re-married in the US when you get back. I am pretty sure Coyaba will FedEx 2 copies of your license to you once it is ready.

    Okay ladies, sorry for taking so long to post. I was lazy and had to look up how to do it :)

    So, I hope this works & here they are!

    The lawn is where the ceremony takes place (unless you've requested to do it on the beach). The view looking out over the water is amazing, no?? Also included one of the pool area, beach and of one of the buildings. The grounds are just amazing...you will all love it! I can't wait to go back (for more reasons than one!).

        It's the only lawn that they showed us...so I assume so!

        All - What did you decide to do about bouquets? & if you have BM's, did you get them bouquets and how much? Still not sure what to do about flowers!

        2 weeks...wow! Can't wait to see your pictures :)

          Forgot to add - the 3rd one is where you will stand with the minister, with the sea as the backdrop - it is gorgeous!

            Hi Dana! I know your post was old but I just reread it and had a question about Sandals. Which property did you visit that you didn't like? We just booked our HM at Sandals Whitehouse after our Coyaba Wedding and I wanted to make sure that wasn't it!!

            Kristin your pictures are great! I think they call the East Lawn the Wedding Lawn. The only other lawn is actually Joanne and Kevin's backyard (they live next door) and they use that to set up the tent if you have to rent one.

              Hey - we stayed at the Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay this past May. We also visited the Sandals Negril and received the same feeling. It's really hit or miss. You will have some exceptional people who work there who treat you good but then some of them of noticably miserable. But, it's your honeymoon - I'm sure you will have a great time.

                Ladies,
                I just got back from getting married at Coyaba on the 8th. Oh, ladies are you in for a TREAT! I will write a full blown review later today or tomorrow, but words cannot describe how wonderful the entire experience was... the staff, the food, the attention to detail, the doting on the bride and groom... unbelievable. We had 61 guests and they all said that it was the best wedding the had ever been to (and this was with Hurricane Paloma weather too boot! (scattered rain showers, very high tide, the wedding lawn was soaked!)... thankfully it didn't rain during the ceremony or reception!

                We also did a few things and they were well worth the splurges...
                1) pepper lights, paper lanters, luminaries at the rehershal dinner (Ask Joanne)
                2) coconut bar (for the experience alone!)
                3) Bonfire with smores (HUGE success!... though we ran out of chocolate very quickly)
                4) Reggae band... yes, they are very expensive but they sound amazing and really make it a Jamaican experience. No one could stop talking about them
                5) Going with the tent rental and using the east lawn for the reception. I swear ladies, if you have enough or close to enough people this is worth the cost. It is like a movie set... the have hanging candles in the trees, tiki torches (and more luminaries... which I brought down the bags for) the tent is secluded, and the way its lit-up at night just takes you to another place... looking back, it was sooo amazing.
                I will try to load up my photos asap... and give an even more indepth review of Coyaba, but until then KNOW it is going to be a very special occasion.

                OH and one last thing, if you haven't, your group MUST and I mean MUST go on the All Inclusive plan... I realize its expensive, but breakfast at the hotel starts at 14 dollars (and thats contentinal breakfast). Lunch is 15-28 per person, and dinner is 28-38 per person. This isn't even including drinks (which they have an amazing array of top shelf liquors available). And, again the food is spectacular.

                Ok, more soon, but again, get excited ladies, you're in for the most amazing weekend for you and your guests!

                  OMG...First off CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Your post just gave me chills. Sounds like everything work out wonderful for you. Every suggestion you made: The tent, the all inclusive and the reggae band was exactly my plan - so you just reassured me BIG time. We have 8 months to go...but feels like forever! I hope it comes quick. Please email your pictures whenever you come down of your cloud :-) dpeduto12@optonline.net

                  Again, much happiness and love!!
                  Are you glad it's over?
