Is anyone switching Sandals resorts after the wedding? We were looking over pricing and catalogs and are thinking about getting married in at the Sandals Bahamas and then the day after the wedding flying to the Regency in St Lucia. That way it's cheaper for our guests, and we don't have to worry about people staying and ruining our honeymoon! The sandals brochures all say you can do this, but has anyone done it, how does it work and how cost effective is it for the bride and groom?

I am getting married at Beaches Boscobel in Ocho Rios and after the wedding honeymooning at Sandals Grande also in Ocho Rios. Beaches is owned by Sandals. We are switching because Beaches is a family resort and we needed at have that flexability. Plus wanted to have a honeymoon also. I am getting married on Friday and we are moving to the other resort on Sunday and our guests are leaving Sunday. So it works out. Cost effective. It doesn't matter. I am paying for a room regardless. Sandals we are paying more, but that is because of the room we chose.

 

If you feel up to flying again, go for it. I love Jamaica and am very content in staying there.

I believe that you can hop resorts, but I think it's only the resorts in the country that you're in. For example, if you're at Sandals Montego Bay, you can hop to any other Jamaican Sandals for free. I'm not sure if it applies if you hop islands. Maybe TA Jennifer can clarify!

It's quite easy to do- we do it with our couples all of the time!

 

You can hop between resorts on the same island or between different islands- you can even do 4 nights at one property and 2 at another and have that count for the free wedding (if you are looking at the free goverment fees it would need to be in the concierge room category for the 6 nights-this pertains to Sandals not Beaches!)

 

The price will be the rate of the rooms at each resort plus the cost of airfare.

Thanks for the info! I got your e-mail as well TA Jennifer, thank you! How does this work with the pictures they take at the wedding, would we be able to view them and decide which ones we wanted at the other resort since we'd want to switch the day after the wedding?

    • 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?
