    My name is Toni and my wonderful fiance's name is Darren and we are in the process of planning our DW in Jamaica for July 2009 (leaning toward the 18th). Mostly because of pricing, we are planning to get married in Ocho Rios and then move to Negril for our honeymoon.

    To all who have done their research or been married in Ocho Rios, please share with me any advice you have about these resorts:
    RIU Ocho Rios
    Beaches Boscobel
    Sandal's Dunn's River
    Sandal's Grande Ocho Rios

    I love the photos I have seen of Dunn's River, but the problem with using a Sandal's is that I have some friends and family who are single, and I don't want them to feel our of place or slighted in any way (or to have to pay a lot more for the resort). We will have possibly 20 guests from what people have told us. My fiance's sister wants to bring her two kids (ages 2 and , but I don't want kids at the wedding, so that is another small issue.

    I haven't found much info on the forum about being married at a Beaches resort. Does anyone have info about that resort? Do I post stuff about Beaches in the Sandals/Couples thread?

    Sorry to be so all over the place! Thanks for any help anyone can give and I hope to return the favor as I get more familiar with this process!

        Hi Toni! The forum is quite addictive!

        There is quite a bit of info on the resorts you listed. Try doing a search or you can browse the Jamaica section and wedding reviews.

        Good luck and happy planning!

          welcome and congrats!
          I would suggest you consider the kids issue as not small as some hotel are very strict on the "kids" policy so be careful. Search the threads as stated, there are tons of posts on the hotels you are interested in. Best of luck planning.
