      We ate at the Plantation several times. It is big, 2 stories, and open-air. Very pretty. If you had exclusive use of it there is room for them to remove tables/chairs and set up a dance floor. I'm not sure if that's something they normally do because when I was there the receptions were in the disco, but there is totally room in the Plantation if they allow it.

        Hi Girls!! Our wedding is from 2pm-3pm. So I figure after the ceremony and pictures around 3pm I will have a cocktail hour with hordourves served at the beach bar, I believe its called the sea grape bar. After that I hope to sneak away for awhile with the new hubby until dinner at 630...lol We were planning on about 25-40 guests but the list was cut after the future inlaws decided that "Jamaica is not our community and a wedding should be shared with our own community" and they are now boycotting it. I did rent the disco but now I am thinking of canceling it because friday night is the beach party and I would rather be out on the beach then inside. So I need some ideas if any of you have any where we could have our 1st dance if I decide not to go with the disco...

          Yeah! Chandlyn finally emailed me back last night. I reserved the Plantation from 6:30 to 8:30. I'm not sure if I'm going to also reserve the disco for later on that night because it is a Friday and I've heard such great things about the beach party on Friday nights. Still not sure what to do in between the ceremony and reception, but I'm sure eveyone will figure something out. When Chandlyn emailed me, she did not mention anything about an included menu, just the ones that I have to pay for; also, we have to pay for open bar?!? I just think it's weird because the guests are already paying for their food/alcohol...oh well!

          Jerzzy girl...sorry to hear about your guest problems. I'm having some of the same issues with my future in-laws. But I realized no matter what I do, someone will be unhappy. It's your day, so do what you want!

                  Natasha,

                  Chandlyn emailed me back stating that there is a dance floor set up but she didn't send me any attachments. Do you mind emailing them to me? It would be greatly appreciated.

                  Thanks in advance

                    I can email you what she sent me but there was only an attachment about the menu. Let me know if you find out about the dance floor. Are you talking about the plantation restaurant??

                      Hi Pouchie,

                      I have the menus for the Plantation and yes there is a dance floor set up. There is a upper level and a lower level that can be set up for the DJ.
