    WOW I can't believe I just got us booked for Sandals Negril for March 28th 2011 !!! Only thing is we have booked a room that I have not seen a picture of . Uh oh! Its the 'honeymoon penthouse ocean view one bedroom plantation suite with whirlpool'...man they have long names for the categories! LOL. Has anyone stayed in one or have a pic I could see so I'm not freaking out!! haha
    I still cannot believe they have released the rates & I got in before the sale ended! Soooo thrilled.
    I'm so excited but no one else is...I'm like 'woo hoo were booked', and everyone I tell is like 'oh thats nice', even him!!!
    Is it just because It's so far in advance? or did anyone else get this response?
    Isn't it amazing to have found someone who gets you 100%

          CONGRATULATIONS, jamaicabride10!

          I am sure you will come across a pic. of your room at some point, somewhere! And even if you can't find one, just rest assured that it's Sandals, so I am sure it will be phenomenal! Plus, I think it's great that you are booked so far in advance...it will give you the opportunity to save money and lots of time to take care of all the little details that will make your wedding uniquely yours!

          Look at it this way: I just booked my wedding (@ Sandals Grande Ocho Rios, Jamaica) for May 14, 2010 just about a month ago, and even though it's still so far away, I feel like I have to sort of "rush" to make sure that we've got everything on our checklist in order (ranging from choosing flowers and organizing OOT bags, to selecting our monogram, invitations, scheduling flights, pre-planning our at-home reception...aaarrgh! Tick-tock, tick-tock!)

          It's also a really great opportunity for you to simply enjoy being engaged to one another, as well, and March 2011 will be here before you know it! Just being a BDW member so far in advance will give you plenty of fantastic ideas to work on, and will certainly keep you busy!

            I think everyone including FI will get excited once the date gets closer. Our engagement period is 22 months and the time just flies by. I can't believe that we are about to hit the 4 month mark.

            Enjoy all of your planning time!!

              Thanks girls!
              Yeah I definitely feel the benefits of this site already! I'm already copying & pasting ideas into lists & (like you Christie) suddenly feel the urge to 'get organised'!!! lol, ah bless us...what will we be like closer to the time if we're this bad now! hahaha
              I think the only reason I felt comfortable booking without seeing the room IS because it's Sandals, so fingers crossed x. To be honest I'll probably be spending all my time on the beach anyway..that is the reason we're going to Jamaica after all :-)

                  We are booked for april 2010 and at first I was all over the WC for details, but have since put it on the back burner. most everything sounds like it is done when you arrive and the rest is chosen a month or so ahead. I am thinking of waiting to finalize....any words of wisdom?

                    What do you mean you got in before the sale ended?
                    Are you talking about the 60% or something they have right now? Did you book directly wit h the resort? or a tour operator...our wedding is at RIU Ocho Rios, but Im hoping to honeymoon at Sandals Negril-we're waiting on our sunquest rep to get back to us with a quote.

                      Marie the 'sale' I was talking about has a count down timer, but I didn't know that as soon as one finishes...another one starts!!!
                      SO, I have since been checking the site every week and low and behold...a better deal was on the other day 60% off, free nights & other stuff. I called to get the rates adjusted down & ended up saving $500!!!!!! OMG I can't believe it!!! Also I checked the rates on the UK site (just in case)and they only have rates until 2010. The same room for our week in 2010 is working out to be €1000 MORE!!! So glad I booked on the US site, even though I am not from the US. Apparently the UK site does not give you the best rate guarantee either It is working out wonderfully!!!!

                      Also I got a pic of the room & it is identical to the Romeo & Juliet but without the pool! I'm delighted! A TA on the facebook site took a pic of it for me when she was there a couple of weeks ago! Very helpful I must say, considering I am not her client! :-) :-)
