    Hey yall!! I am looking up places to have my wedding and I was wondering if anyone on here knows anything about Sandals Resort in Jamaica? I was thinking about getting married at their new location Sandals Whitehouse. Would love any info you could give me. :)

      hi!
      I'm not getting married at Sandals (too many singles coming!), but just wanted to say hi to another Jamaica bride to be! :) We're looking at Negril or Ocho Rios right now...good luck with the planning!
      Married April 4, 2008 at the Riu Ocho Rios!

          I am getting married at Sandals Dunns River on May 12th. I would love to chat with you about what type of reception you are having etc. I am also getting pictures from a bride that got married there last month. I can pass them on when I get them if you would like.

            We are just doing the reception that is in the basic weddingmoon. Its only us and my parents going so we figured it would be okay, based on some of the things ive heard its very very basic which was fine, we just wanted something simple-kwim. The only thing we did upgrade was the picture package only because i wanted a few professional pictures and since its just the 4 of us i know my parents wouldnt be able to get all the different pics i wanted. I thought about upgrading the flowers but i decided against it because they probably wouldnt make it through the trip home. We are going to do the sand ceremony and when i called the wedding department they said all of the specifics of the ceremony would be discussed when we got there. Its getting close now im down to less than 2 weeks it really hasnt set in yet, still soo many things going through my mind. I would love to see the pics from another wedding there!! My email address is carissahoffmann@yahoo.com If you had any more questions its great to be able to talk to someone who is going to the same resort. I will definately let you know every detail when i get back. We are going to be there the 19th-27th of April and we are getting married on April 21st.

                I personally have not been to Sandals Whitehouse, however my sister and her husband were there opening week (pretty sweet, they got a free weekend stay out of the deal). At the time it wasn't completely finished, but what was there was beautiful. She did comment on the noseeums though. Lots of beach bugs.

                  We got engaged at Sandals Whitehouse in March (private candlelit dinner on the beach). We would be getting married there, but we will be having kids in our wedding so we are getting married in Montego Bay at Iberostar. We LOVED Whitehouse, it really is beautiful and you have lots of options- you can do as little or as much as you want. It is about an hour an a half from the airport, which may not be ideal for some wedding guests to travel that far, but we didn't mind a bit. The drive gave a chance to see a lot more of the island. We saw a couple weddings in passing when we we were there, but they weren't big- just a bride and groom and a witness or two right on the beach (not private at all). I know they have different locations that didn't see any other weddings so can't be much help in that department, but I know we want to go back someday-we loved it.
