    Are there any other Beaches brides out there? I am finding myself disappointed in my decision (Beaches Boscobel), and was wondering if anyone has ever chosen this resort, or any Beaches?

        I cant remember right now who it was, but someone recently married at Sandals and loved it! Also their family with kids stayed at Beaches and loved it as well.

              The WC at the resort refuses to send me any pictures of prior weddings due to "privacy reasons", and I am a little annoyed at one other thing. One of the original places that we looked at (Sunset Beach) was going to charge a flat fee of like $250 for under 50 people (totalling pulling that out of that air, cuz I can't remember the correct number, but it's close!) to set us up with a private section for a reception and our own server, but the normal menu of the resort for that night. It was a more economical decision (which is why we chose a DW!). And my TA told me that all the resorts will work with you like that, and that probably Beaches would as well. Well, I have never planned a trip like this and I just beleived her instead of checking with Beaches (my fault, i know), and now there is a pp fee. So I realize that issue is more with me and my TA then Beaches, but I am still annoyed! I even emailed the WC at Beaches to see if there were any other suggestions she could make and that's when i requested pictures.

              I think I am just really frustrated with everything at this point. We are also having major issues trying to plan the AHR. Sorry to vent on here, but my fiance is sick of hearing it!

                Oh thank goodness! I am so glad you stayed there and loved it! I haven't chosen a Preston Bailey package yet, and not sure if I will, since I already upgraded ($1,500) to the Twilight package. This means we get married at twilight (sorry, that was obvious), but it also includes a few other upgrades. Not sure if we can upgrade the flowers as well, since the AHR is still up in the air. If we decide not to have a AHR, i am going to go crazy and do everything I want in Jamaica, but until then, not making those decisions just yet.
