    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?
