Caves versus Tensing Pen or somewhere else?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new and am hoping to get married just the two of us at either Tensing Pen or the Caves or wherever in Negril, Jamaica. Still haven't made a complete decision or booked and am still trying to convince fiance that we really deserve something this special...After all we are saving money not having a big wedding.

My main reason for joining this forum is because it will be just the two of us and I am not sure how that will work. All the pictures info I have seen about destination weddings seem to be ones with lots of guests. I was concerned that it would be awkward and wondering how dressy I should and could get without it being ridiculous. I like the "destination dresses" but they still seem like they may be a little too formal still. Though I would love it. And what about a veil. And feedback on this or pictures even would be awesome. My fiance also is wondering and I would like to relay info and still be honest..It would be easier to convince him if this is common...I am getting great freedback on trip advisor too but figured since this is a "wedding forum" i might get even more feedback. I appreciate all the help. I don't know anyone who has done this and have always dreamed about it. Thanks so much.

I've seen lovely pictures of couples getting married by themselves and the bride was in a dress and veil and everything.

 

I see nothing wrong with the idea of it and would go that route if I could only convince my fiance to do it!

I didn't stay at either resort, but have seen both of them and they are beautiful!

 

Since it will only be the 2 of you, it's all the more reason to go all out! There are several other brides that have only been the ones there. Search for threads by Lilpaisley and JustUsTwo. You can also search for Tensing Pen, Rockhouse, etc. to get specific hotel information.

 

I think you need to be comfortable in your attire. My dress was formal, and not what most people would think of for a beach wedding. I couldn't imagine getting married in anything different. I tried on a few 'destination' dresses and I didn't feel bridal. I wanted my wedding day to feel specail, not like i was just wearing a white dress.

Thanks for the replies, I think I will do the "destination wedding dress" thing. Just a little worried because it will be in June. EEEk.

It also depneds on your budget. Both hotels are gorgeous-but The Caves is a little more than Tensing Pen.

 

There is no rule that you need to be in a sundress and flip flops for a beach wedding. Like pp said, I have seen a formal (tuxes) wedding on a beach...do what makes you happy. Especially since it will be the 2 of you-enjoy every minute of it.

Just the two of you will be fine as long as that's what you bot want. The dress is a decision I am basing on what I will be comfortable in and I of course it will look nice, but I never wanted the big ball gown princess type dress myself, so whatever you like and feel comfortable in will work.

I think you should dress in what you've always wanted to wear. Also, both of these places are on the cliffs, not sandy beach, which is why we are going with formal. I'm in a very nice dress/veil/heels, not flip flops. A DW dress is what you want it to be! Oh, and yes I might be a tad hot, but I didn't care. I will look at my pictures for the rest of my life and want to make sure it all looked the way I always wanted.

GL!

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
