    I saw Geralyn's and some other threads about having your entire reception on the beach but what about having your included dinner at the restaurant and then doing a private drinks/dancing party after? Either on the beach or poolside? Did anyone do this or is doing this? Do you have options/details/pricing for this? From what I am gathering on the threads, I think it is $10 per person for just the bar? We can't really afford the $55 per person for the entire dinner reception on the beach.

    Also on those same threads I saw, they mentioned you got shut down at 9pm because of the show starting. So I am wondering...my wedding is at 4pm so I am thinking dinner at the restaurant will not be until around 6pm so by the time we are done there do we even have enough time for a drinks/dancing thing on the beach if we have to be done by 9pm??

    Also, when do you book something like this? Can you reserve the spot anytime in the months before your wedding or do you have to wait until you get down there? How can you be sure no one else takes the location first?

    I have been trying to email Sherika with these questions, but even though she gets back to me promptly she does not answer the questions very clearly. So any information on this would be helpful.

      if you email sherika in bullets or numbers she answers all the questions. I think if you write a whole paragraph with different topics she looses track.
      from my understanding you cant book the beach reception ahead of time because it depends on the size of your wedding and how many other weddings there are that day. And she mentioned there isnt a poolside reception option avail but for just the drinks and dancing...not sure. definetely a good question.

        i found i was having trouble communicating my requests to sherika also
        i want to book the restaurant and ensure we have this confirmed before we leave

        do you know who i need to contact at the hotel for other confirmations eg the family room and our room upgrade that we have paid for
        i am worried that if i dont do it before we leave i will have a major breakdown if i get there and things are not done lol

        anyway how is your planning coming along?

          I took angie's advice on asking Sherika questions in bullet or number format and that seems to be helping. Her answer are more clear that way. She basically said the same thing angie said in her post...that really you wait til you get down there to book everything. You can definitely have your dinner at the restaurant..that is included and does need to be book/confirmed. As for the upgrade in rooms, if you are already paid for it I would imagine it is all set. I would bet Sherika wouldn't even have that information anyways. Bottom line is, from what I have read on this site from other brides it seems like you really plan most of your things once you are there and that you almost always get accommodated on what you want. I'm starting to learn and accept that now 'It's Jamaica mon No problem mon' !! Anyways, I am sure everything will be wonderful...and you're wedding is just a few days before mine!! When are you staying there until??

                  Hi Ladies...a little off track here, but I think we might have to hook up while we're all at RMB!

                  I land on May 1...we can have a drink to celebrate our nuptuals, and that your weddings will have gone off without a hitch! No problem mon! Just take everything in stride. If something little didn't happen, that something little didn't need to happen. Everything will be perfect!

                  ~Stay positive and love your life!~
