    Hi all,

    We are still on the hunt for a wedding location in Jamaica...

    choices are as follows:

    Half Moon
    rose hall
    sunset beach
    sunset jamaica grande
    ( we where impressed with ROR - but after soom research i have learnt that you need a minimum number of guests and i am not sure how many guests will come yet?)

    Not sure which one to go for? Has anyone got an advice, tips, experiences at any of these locations...

    I suppose our next hurdle when we have decided is who will come to the wedding and who will 'definetly' come to the wedding. fun and games :-)

    any advice is much appreciated.

    Nay x

      Hi Nay!

      I can totally relate to being confused. I just chose my resort a couple of weeks ago. It was really hard. I knew I wanted to get married in Jamaica, just not exactly where. I decided on Negril because I thought I would get the best beach pics there since I want to get married in the sand on the beach. I chose Sunset at the Palms because I called all of my choices and spoke with the wedding coordinators. I chose the resort that had a coordinator that I thought I could work with. I received help from onestop. I got their infor from trip advisor. They have Onestop Negril, OR, MoBay and Port Antonio. The TA there was so helpful and I haven't even booked with her yet. I booked my wedding first so I could be sure to get my date. She gave me the names and numbers of the wedding coordinators and the resorts that I was interested in and suggested that I call them. Great advice!

      The Sunset properties seem to do a pretty good job. I recommend calling each one that you are interested in and speaking with the coordinators. I also read the reviews of the resorts on trip advisor. I have been in contact with several brides from this site and trip advisor who got married at my resort. They can answer lots of questions and have plenty of insight. I hope this helps. I am new to this site but have received my best info from these ladies.

      Good luck!

          I think in terms of luxury and services the order is as follow, having stayed at all of them. Half Moon (top notch) even over the Ritz carlton, Rose Hall (Hilton owns it now, so it is newly renovated). Not too keen on Sunset Beach and SJG, but would follow in that order. I would place the RIUS along with Rose Hall so a tie for second place. Our budget was very tight so we went with the RIU over Rose Hall. Round Hill, which is another fabulous options is another recommendation. Best of Luck!

            We had too many people, but I was enamored with Round Hill and Moon Dance Cliffs in Negril..Good Luck

              That was the hardest thing for me and I went through just about every Island there is but while looking in Jamaica I liked Round Hill the most. Half Moon seemed a little pricey and can't remember what I did't like about Rose Hall. But I also crossed off any resort that held more than one wedding a day, that help me narrow down my list. Good Luck!!!

                Hi Nay,

                I was in the same place about a week ago that you are right now. My FI and I had so many different factors to consider, number of people going, cost, kid-friendly and above all some place that we could see ourselves getting married. We considered resorts all over the Caribbean and Mexico and changed where we thought we were going quite a few times.

                We finally decided on the Rose Hall Resort and Spa this week and are so excited about it. They have basically everything that we were looking for, we have read great reviews and know people who have stayed at the resort and raved about it. I guess it doesn't hurt that they just underwent a HUGE renovation as well!

                I think the most important thing that you have to keep in mind is that this is your wedding and YOU and YOUR FIANCE have to pick the resort that is the right fit for the wedding that you envision!

                Good Luck!
