    Congrats and welcome to the site! I found that choosing a resort was the hardest of the hardest...also trying to please everyone at the same time (destination, $$$) don't get overwhelmed with everything because it is your and your finance's wedding!

    Good luck with everything :)

      I would say to hook up with a travel agent that is familiar with Jamaica and resorts. It will take you forever to weed through all the ones you like and most times a travel agent has been to all of them so they would have first hand knowledge. My siter went through a travel agent 3 years ago. She found her an absolutely beautiful place in Ocho Rios, stayed in contact with her throughout the entire process (even when she turned her over to the wedding coordinator) at the resort, she followed up almost daily to see how things went, found great rates for all my sis guests, including me and my FI, my sister loved her so much she even invited her to the wedding, but unfortunately, her TA had previously made arrangemtns the year prior so she couldn't make it. It took the TA about 2 days to weed through all of the resorts in Jamaica, decide on the best location, amenities and handled all her guests travel too. Good luck, but I would tell you my sister could not have kept her sanity if it weren't for her travel agent! Best BT

        You could also look through some spa magazines or websites. Spa hotels often have very intimate settings and may give you a different perspective.

        I also love the TripAdvisor Travel Guides, Lonely Planet, and best of all, booking a flight and hoofing it around a new location.
