    Hey Angel, my daughters photographers photograph there quite often.  They just posted another wedding from there on their blog. :)

      A few of my guests are asking about excursion options.  Does anyone have any idea of the excursions offered through the resort and or prices?  I'd like to include that in a brochure, so if you have info on a catamaran cruise, shopping day trip, water fall trip, that would be awesome and helpful.  Thanks!

        This is the link that my TA sent me when I asked about excursions... I think it is the same as through the resort, but I'm not 100% sure.

          Does anyone know what kind of knife they provide for cutting the cake, at the Beach?  Wondering if we should take our own.

            Hey Everyone,

             

            I am planning my wedding for April 2012 at the Suites. My idea is to do a ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner at Calabash, and then Bonfire/DJ on the beach. My question is - is a cocktail hour really necessary???? I am thinking it doesn't make sense to pay extra for food and drinks at an all inclusive resort, but on the other hand what do my guest do between the ceremony and the time dinner starts. Also I read a lot of brides have cocktail hour right on the beach after the ceremony....I dont want to have cocktail hour on the beach and the bonfire on the beach as well...what are you thoughts???? what are your after the ceremony events?????

              I'm wondering the same thing. I was thinking of not having a formal cocktail hour and just telling my guests to go to the lobby bar for cocktails and perhaps have the steel drum band play an extra hour on the terrace outside the lobby bar. This would be way cheaper than paying a per hour and per guest fee for drinks and food during the cocktail hour.

                In the info that I sent out I just included the main excursion website: jamaicantoursltd.com, and instructed them that in order to get pricing they would need to select the resort.

                  This is just my opinion, but honestly, a cocktail hour after the ceremony is useless.  I'd rather give my guests time to go back their room and freshen up and change, or do whatever they want to do.  Even if you plan a cocktail hour, they may not even stay.  They can go and grab snacks and drinks for free anyway.  You don't need to keep them entertained for that time.  Just my opinion.  I would suggest you take that money and plan a welcome party instead, for everyone to meet each other when you all arrive, and to communicate any important info to everyone at the same time.

                      Hi Everyone... My fiance and I were originally planning to do a cocktail hour at the pool bar at the Suites from 8:30 - 10:30. We were told we can't do this b/c of noise at a late hour but that we could have the cocltail hour on the beach.

                      Has anyone else done something like this? I know a lot of people are doing a bonfire but this would be drinks and dancing on the beach instead. The coordinator said they would set up tables and a bar... I'm just wondering what this would look like! Any info or photos would be greatly appreciated!
