Post here if you are getting married in Jamaica

Recommended Posts

I recently got Married at SGOR on April 10, 2010 and it was fantastic!!

I was concerned based on somethings I had read on this blog and other review sites but I was blown away with the experience I had there.

 

If I could sum up my experience at Sandals Grande Ochos Rios in one word it would be PHENOMENAL!

 

The service was as spectacular as the beautiful Jamaican scenary. The grounds were immaculately kept as well as the rooms. The entire resort is beautiful.

 

I have never been on vacation and felt so at home and welcome by each and every staff member. Everyone you passed would say hello and ask you how you were doing or if you needed anything and were more than happy to make sure you were having the best time possible.

 

We particularly were impressed with two of the bartenders at the Sundowner Bar in The Riviera Building. It truly would not have been a party without them. They were fun and attentive and made some of the most delicious drinks I have ever had. Milton and Carlyle are phenomenal bartenders and made every night even better than the next.

If you stop by the Sundowner bar please tell them hello from King and Queen Arthur.

 

Our wedding festivities were effortless and perfect. All my husband and I really had to do was show up and the rest was easy. Our ceremony was perfect and our officiate Joel created a ceremony suited just perfectly for us. The reception following was lovely and well organized, I could not have asked for more. They also did a great job catering to the large group of guests, everyone was extremely happy with the ceremony and overall experience.

 

I highly recommend SGOR to anyone looking to have wonderful wedding experience and lookatme.gif a fabulous time and not feel like a tourist, but as if you are a friend.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
