Thanks TA Jennifer! Getting down to the final count for my SGOR wedding and I cannot wait! We've hit several bumps in the road but hopefully everything will pan out.

Right now is a great time to book for 2009 brides- the deals are amazing-especially if you are looking at the concierge rooms and higher!

I have a flyer for my bridal show last year where I priced out the Sandals properties- typically we should see a 5-15% increase in price- the Jamaica properties are pricing lower than they were last year!! Antigua is much less. St. Lucia & Bahamas-some of the concierge & butler category rooms are waaayyy less, the rest are pricing at only a 5% increase for most rooms!

However for the 2010 brides the discounts are only in the 25% area.

I am not a Sandals bride, but really want to be a Sandals honeymooner! We are just having a hard time figuring out when to get the best deal and get the best rooms. We are on a tight budget and are kind of very last minute with this. Any ideas?!

I would definately book now as Sandals is having a great sale- usually the prices aren't quite this good!

Each Sandals resort is very different in terms of atmosphere and ambiance. As much as I love Sandals there are also a few of the resorts where I would not book the lower room categories - and then there a few where the lower room categories are very, very nice!

QUESTIONS to all those Sandals/Beaches brides. I am trying to decide on what type of reception to have. Please let me know what everyone else is doing and maybe why you chose it. Thanks for helping me in my decision. We are planning to have around 15 guests and the two of us.

We plan on doing the three hour reception and adding a DJ.

We're at the Sandals Royal Bahamian and also opted for the 3-hour reception dinner at $75 pp. We also have about 15 guests plus the 2 of us.

We hired a steel drum band to play during the cocktail hour and champagne toast before the reception but no music while we're actually eating the dinner. I can't remember which restaurant patio they said we'd use, but they close off one of the patios for your group.

We have the menu choices and plan to finalize the all the details this wknd in terms of apps, main course, dessert, etc.

I am not a Sandals bride, but am a Sandals honeymooner, the Sandles Grande in St. Lucia for May 2009!

 

We are having a hard time figuring out how to get the best deal on the best rooms, or at least what our options are. We are on a tight budget and are currently booked for just the regular rooms there. Thoughts or suggestions on this? Any ideas?! Thanks!!!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
