It was more than I had asked for and it was stunning. We brought our own IPOD, note though that your reception runs in the evening the same time as the show which is upstairs so our "speeches" had to be shouted quite loud to overcome the noise but once our music started you couldnt tell anymore.
Dr.Hubby thanks so much for sharing your review! I can't wait to see your pics. I do have 1 question. The beach bar that you're referring to, is that the Dunn River Bar or Seagrape? What kind of private party did you have at the beach bar? Was it after your reception or did you have a welcome party there? It seems the setup was beautiful so I'm just curious.
Thanks so much!

I love hearing peoples reviews. Everyone sounds like they love the resort and have a stress free wedding. It makes me less stressed that my guests wont have a bad time. Thanks for the review!!!

I asked Norma (the super nice woman from Lees tours) about what I could do for flowers and she gave me a ridiculously cheap price for flowers for me, my bridesmaids, the groom, and my flower girls AND they'll deliver it to the hotel first thing in the morning. If you need ANY services I am strongly endorsing these guys - they're fantastic and fast to respond by email.
Did you order your flowers through the tour company? We've already booked our shuttle service through Lee's, and I agree, they're amazing so far!! How did the ride turn out?

HEY!

 

ok for the couple of questions. At the beach bar we had our reception the night of our wedding.

Second, my brother in law brought an awesome sound system for the beach bar - speakers and all (otherwise its 75$/hr to rent the beach bar system which is really just a little stereo that skips tracks alot from what I can tell during the day).

Originally I had booked my flowers through Lee's but was shocked when I found out a beautiful bouquet and boutenniere were included for free with the free wedding package so I cancelled them.

We were on a really tight budget cuz we went to Sandals Negril for the honeymoon. So instead of flower pedals for the flower girls I snuck down to the palm trees before, cut some palm leaves down and cut the palm leaves into tons of tiny hearts. It looked really natural and pretty when the girls were throwing them. (they cut easy too cuz they fold in half).

The busride with Leroy was AWESOME the bus was nice and the red stripe/rum punch abounded and our family WAS sooooo excited when they found out (we only told them when everyone was searching for the sunquest bus...). It was really easy to find too (Norma sends some complicated sounding directions but really that whole part of the airport consists of just a room).

we also took all our guests on the Lees tours Dunns River/Catamaran and snorkelling trip which people are still saying was the best part of their trip. (we had little kids with us as young as 3 so we wanted to do something that they could enjoy). Be forwarned though if you do do this, make sure the kids are seated inside on the boat ride back cuz thats when the captain really cuts across waves on purpose to make the boat bounce and the kids totally freaked.
