Beaches Negril Bride
Posted 24 January 2009 - 03:40 PM
I just wanted to share my experience with chosing my FI and Is DW location. I joined this forum early January 2009 and was feeling very overwhelmed with all the possible locations for a DW. My FI and I knew we wanted to get married in Jamaica but were quickly discouraged with some of the prices that we were getting back from our TA.
We have two children ages 8 and 6 and we really wanted a kid friendly location. We had originally looked at some of the Beaches resorts but due to some of the other locations in Jamaica coming back quite expensive we put the Beaches on the "back Burner". Well to our surprise the price for Beaches came back quite reasonable. We were so excitted when we truely started looking at Beaches Negril. The pictures, the reviews and the prices were just too perfect.
This upcoming week we will be booking our DW at Beaches Negril and will be getting married in November 2009. Our kids are really excitted. I just wanted to share this experience to encourage all you other DW brides to explore all your options. Even if you think that one resort might be more expensive, you might be happily surprised when you pursure it further.
We have a large group travelling with us, approximately 30 - 40. Booking with a group has allowed us to get the wedding package free. We do want to have a private reception following the ceremony which isn't included in the package. We will work with the WC at Beaches Negril to ensure that have our reception, and we are prepared to pay the additonal cost of 75$/person to do that.
If anyone has been married at Beaches Negril we would love to hear from you.

It was a truely amazing expierence all around and Avia the wedding captian (not the wedding coordinator.. but I can go into that later)...will handle everything for you on your wedding day and day after. We had our son 6 and two nephews 4 and 8 who were with us for the big day. Your children are going to go wild with the thought that EVERYTHING is available to them with just a drop of hat. The kids camp is wonderful, Noah loved making Wizard Wands, Pirate Bandanas, and taking a dance class with Zoey. Oh I really could go on forever, but if you have any questions please PM me.

The begining part of Nov is really a complete and total crap shoot if you will end up with a hurricane .. they really really don't happen all that often because it's the end of the season and if they do they are on the opposite side of the island before they hit Negril. We wanted Jamaica as it's warmest without the hurricanes and November seemed best for us ... Plus I really had a thing for November 8th we were engaged on Dec 8th and international calendar posting of the date looks like this .... 08-11-08.. LOL.. yes I know cheesy.

Pricing seemed fair for us .. I will have to check as I really don't remember the cost per person as we only spent 5 days at Beaches and then another 5 days Couples Swept Away for our HM. We went up and got the concierge level at both resorts. Beaches is more expensive then any other place we looked at, but with what it had to offer it really wasn't something we thought about. Plus, with the crazy deals with the economy, I bet you are getting much better of a deal than us ... as we had already booked by this time last year. I can find out for you though....
