    I am back from Sandals Grande Ocho Rios and we had a great time!! Unfortunately Hurricane Gustav decided to come through and about half of our guests' flights were cancelled on Friday, so they would not have been able to get there until Sunday... (the wedding was scheduled for Saturday) So we cancelled the wedding. We couldn't get married without my Fiance's mom and his entire side of the family. Sandals was pretty nice about it and we should be getting a full refund.

    We had a great time on our "honeymoon" and I will post some pictures of the resort. It is really pretty.

          OH man! I am really sorry to hear that. It's great that Sandals gave you a refund. Are you going to get married there, or have your plans changed?

                Oh no! But I'm glad to hear they're going to give you a full refund.

                Are you going to get married at home instead or reschedule your DW?

                  Wow, that is too bad. Did you buy insurance or is Sandals just really good?

                      Wow! That really sucks! Sorry to hear about it I think I would've gone about the situation, but it sounds like you're taking it in stride. What's the plan now? Did any of your guests end up going to Jamaica, or did they all stay home and get refunds from insurance?
