    Hello! My FI and I would love to get married at Tensing Pen and we've found an available date, but we can't get Sonia to answer our phone calls or emails.

    We want to go ahead and make our reservations soon, but we'd really like to see some information about wedding costs, packages, hidden fees, etc., before we do.

    Does anyone have information about weddings at Tensing Pen? Either something you received from TP/Sonia or your own thoughts, advice, or reflections? Anything you can provide would be much appreciated!

    Thanks so much!

      Please re-read the FAQ (see red link below in signature) to learn how to use the forum before posting anything else.

      Also, if you search the Jamaica forum - you will find tons of threads on Tensing Pen.

      Thanks,
      Alyssa

        Thanks so much for your help and sorry to start off on the wrong foot. I am (obviously) new to this and still trying to figure things out.

        I've searched the forums but haven't found any recent price-related info on TP... but I believe it must be in there somewhere, so I'll keep looking...

        Thanks again -- this forum is very helpful!

            Okay, so I've searched and searched and I still can't find any pricing information on the forum... I don't want to abuse this threat, but I'm sure that with the wealth of knowledge on these boards, someone out there must be able to help!

            Does anyone out there have lunch or dinner menus from the Tensing Pen restaurant?

            Any information about how much their "cocktail hour" costs (both food and drinks - I'm assuming the prices on the website are no longer accurate since most other info there has changed)?

            Any information about the vendors Tensing Pen recommends for music and how much those cost? (Bands, musicians, DJs... anything would be helpful!)

            We're still trying to get information from the resort but not having any luck getting a response... if anyone out there knows anything, we would be GRATEFUL for your help!

            Thanks so much!

                  No, no, no. Smitten, I'd encourage you to click on my siggy to study up on forum etiquette. Here is an excerpt worth noting:

                  There is little to no tolerance for poor attitudes or snide remarks directed at BDW administration. Again, this is a free forum and as such, members are free to leave on their own at any time if they do not agree with forum policies and procedures.

                  Your remark was snide and directed at BDW administration. You too are free to leave at any time, there is no need to be ugly. Please do not go there again.

                  we are not snarky, simply volunteers who run this forum so you can plan your wedding without having to re-create the wheel and then no one else does either. We all planned our weddings here and most of the mods were the first brides who got married at their locations which means we did A TON of ground work and its increasingly difficult to manage a forum when people start multiple threads on the same subject. There is just a handful of us (who all have full time jobs, husbands and children) and thousands of brides, grooms, vendors, etc.

                  Beyondsmitten, please consider this your warning, if you feel the need to disregard the rules or speak poorly about a moderator or any other member on this forum you will be banned.
                  Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!
