Beaches Boscobel Ceremony Sites

Recommended Posts

The thing that gets me is after paying for a theme that you must pay for additional tables if needed. I mean, if you're putting down that money, extra tables should be included in it. I might just stick with the free one and some small little things in my luggage.

I agree. Not only that, but if you are just having a cocktail reception, like me, then it becomes even more of a waste! I do like that butterfly motif, but the way they have it done is almost overkill. I plan to go with the basic package, and bring some of my own accents.

 

Also, yesterday I got an e-mail response from my WC, telling me some upgrades to the basic package would be available come November. So I am waiting on that. It's just kind of a bummer since my wedding is coming up soon and I'd like to know what I still need to buy!

I agree... these costs are outrageous! I was told that the free wedding included an arch and minimal decorations too, so I thought that was fine! We booked 12 rooms... spending over 15,000. You would think they would give more! 900 for an arch? Thats crazy. Now I'm debating on just moving the ceremony and reception somewhere else. I spoke to this wedding coordinator who can do a beach front gazebo in ocho rios with full decor, 4 hour reception, etc for around the same price of beaches but more stuff. I guess I should wait to see what their upgrade offers are though.

Ooooh, that would be great if you were able to move it to an off-site location and get more! At this point in my planning, I don't know if it would be an option for me....but what a great idea!

 

Argh, so many things you learn as you go through this! wink.gif

I am actually at Beaches Boscobel RIGHT NOW!!  lol.  The brides wedding was at the Venetian and she had 21 guests....it was perfect.  It was SUPER sunny (which Jamaica tends to be), but the small gazebo gave the perfect amount of shade for gorgeous pics with the ocean in the background.  SO glad she chose to get married at that spot.  I've seen the little pier....it's beautiful...but very small.  Not much room to move around.  

 

The bride had her ceremony at the Venetian, cocktails in the Piano Bar, and then the reception (with an outside DJ) back on the re-set up Venetian.  It was PERFECT.  Couldn't recommend a better set up.  :D

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
