Then we had our wedding on the Bob Marley terrace on Wednesday at 5pm at the Beach resort. We had 33 people total. We did the ceremony, champagne toast, semi-private dinner at Uncle Tonyâ€s then back to the terrace for cake/dancing. We ended the night with wishing lanterns on the beach. Everything went perfectly – there was really nothing to worry about! After 6 days at the Beach, we moved to the Grand for our honey moon for an additional 4 days. This was seriously the best 10 days of my life! I got so much help from this site, so please feel free to ask questions – I will be happy to help if I can. Best piece of advice is to keep it as simple as possible. I donâ€t really feel like you need too many plans/decorations as everything is so beautiful there. I wish I could post a few pics from our wedding, but honestly Iâ€m not sure how… Good luck to all future brides. Enjoy it!!! It goes fast!

Hi Jaclyn

 

Quick question? Did you have to pay for the terrace for cake/dancing? Did you hire a dj for that or just put your ipod on? Also where did you have your first dance?

Thanks in advance

We did not have to pay extra for cake/terrace. We did pay for international bar though. You can opt for appetizers also, which you would have to pay for but since we judt ate dinner, we didnt think it was necessary. And we also paid $450 for DJ for two hours. We did our first dance on the terrace after the cake cutting. :)

has anyone done a rehearsal dinner with the whole group? I have about 70 people staying at the suites, and just thinking it would be fun to do hibachi or something for everyone, but not sure if that's allowed.  thanks!

I did the hibachi welcome dinner for our whole group, but there were only 15 of us. You may be limited with the amount of space in the restaurant, but check with the WC to see if 70 people would fit. Our group had a good time :)

We were married on April 25, 2013 and had the same problem with the wishing lanterns. They have a store there called "Fontana" that will have the wishing lanterns there for you. The price was about $5.00-6 per set but they were the large ones. We chose all white for our "All White" welcome celebration for our guests. The resorts have cab drivers there that will take you. Hope this helps!!

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
