switching over

Recommended Posts

so after all this time of being a dreams cancun bride i pretty sure im switching over to the sandals jamaica side ladies!!! shane and i went to talk to yet another travel agent to get some info on jamaica and it looks like its a go. first of all, that is originally where we were going to get married. we switched because of price and single people going. well, considering ive never been anywhere and shane has only been to cancun once and it was with his long time girlfriend before me, i had a hard time to think that we would be getting married at a place that they went together. i know it may sound petty and immature but as much as i tried not to let it bother me it did. like i told him, it wouldn't be an issue to go there but to get married there to me is different. jamaica is somewhere we both wanted to go and everyone that is going has never been there but most have been to cancun. so here we are trying to make a decision on that. after all this time planning with dreams i start all over. we are looking into the sandals resorts. we like montego bay, dunns river villagio, and grande ocho rios. any advice or info would help. thanks for letting me vent. im off to learn about weddings in jamaica now. LOL

our original plan was beaches boscabel because of the kid situation, are you bringing your kids? I love the Ocho Rios side of Jamaica is more what we wanted, less touristy and Dunn's river falls is awesome!

i prefer to book sandals for a honeymoon rather than a DW...one of the main reasons is because it is quite expensive.

 

the room rates are in the high $400's-500 per night....it is hard enough to get guests to book when the room rate is in the $200 per night range.

Congrats on the switch! You don't sound petty, a lot of people wouldn't want to spend their wedding/honeymoon where their significant other romanced someone else. Now Jamaica will be your place, how exciting!

thanks!! we are between grande ocho rios and dunns river villagio. we like how much there is at grande ocho rios but then again it seems like its really spread out too. dunns river doesn't seem to have enough though. decisons, decisions!!!

we got some prices and it doesn't seem too much higher. i guess a little more money is worth the peace of mind since im being a baby!!! LOL

Thank you Tammy!! That information is helpful. we are looking to a basic reception since we don't want anything too elaborate. we don't have too many guest coming and we are having a big reception when we get back.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
