any Beaches brides?

Recommended Posts

I was about to go crazy! I thought I was getting screwed!

 

See, I also think I am freaking out cuz there are quite a few Jamaica brides on here, but almost everyone choose Riu and I am so scared that I should have too!!

 

<edit> I am totally an over-analyzer, so this wedding stuff is super hard for me

If I'm not mistaken, the RIU is a lot cheaper than Beaches... which could be the main deciding factor for most people. I know I've looked at Beaches, and I would LOVE to have a wedding there and I think my entire family would love the resort... it's just not economical at this time.

I am 100% in agreement with this!! I chose the Riu because it was MUCH cheaper than Beachers. I would have loved Beacher - but definitely was not in the budget. I'm sure things will come together and work out perfectly!!! smile159.gif No worries!!!

Well, I am glad to hear the only reason there aren't more Beaches brides is $, cuz I was beginning to wonder what you all knew that I didn't!

I have been off for a few hours and was thinking about you so checked back in. I'm so glad you're feeling good about it again!!! It looks fabolous and the reviews I read were so great! I'm sure it will all come together.

 

And I totally understand the over analyzing thing rolleyes.gif I can be a b*tch sometimes!

You should try looking on trip advisor for pics of weddings at Beaches. I found quite a few pics of weddings at Riu on there. There may also be some reviews and/or comments to look at.

I have always wanted to go to Beaches. FI and I really wanted to take our son because Ive only ever heard good about it, but it was the cost that kept us away. It was going to cost us around $6000 to go away for a week! And my son is only 16 months old so that was way too much. I think it is a gorgeous looking resort, and the pp fee seems to be at most resorts. Also, I can kind of understand the privacy policy with pics. Honestly, I wouldnt want just anyone to be able to request photos of my wedding, especiall with kids in them. I really hope that you still with Beaches and have a great time!!

OK, so I just took my own advice and looked up Beaches on Trip Advisor and found quite a few wedding reviews, all very positive. Don't worry, you'll be in Jamaica, what more do you need than a sandy beach and a drink in your hand.

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
