Did you ever want to change your resort?

We did Beaches Negril because of the travel coordinator's suggestion and I chose some certain things for the wedding decor and theme, but now that all weddings are martha stewart weddings from JAnuary, I am being nickeled and dimed for every single thing beacuse my color scheme is not the same as hers. Would have been better to go to RIU in my opinion :-(
Also, the resort is sold out for the days of my wedding so most guests are at sandy bay and that is getting sold out too.
Amber says she will ask her supervisor but if guests stay at another resort, I dont think that they shoud have to pay an entry fee because they could not get a room at my resort?

I see your wedding is only 3 days before mine...I was wondering how busy the resort would be at that time, but obviously quite busy...

The flowers and colors they had before are changed because everyone who gets married at BEaches/sandals from JAnuary has to have a martha stewart beautiful beginnings package- i.e purple or white orchids and table settings etc. or choose one of the other themes.
Any other color except those in other themed packages are extra and have to paid for 30 days before the wedding.
IS that what they told you too?

We booked for Negril, Then lastly decided that we just wanted to hang in Mo bay so Im gonna be a RMB bride and we are booked and everything is final its a great feeling. I could change and change again.
The Coyaba looks great. I just dont look at anything else now that we are this far into it. We made our decision its gonna be great! And im sure yours will be too!

i won,t bore you but when we booked it was between 2 resorts and the last couple of days i have been thinking about the other resort mentioned it to the fi to find out hes been thinking the same.
the ta put our minds at rest and reminded us why we booked there in the 1st place.and now im fine.i think its just because we pay everything off in a couple of weeks and i want everything to be good.it helped because the ta has been to both resorts.
but my advise to you is obviously you booked there on your gut instinct and for many reasons so leave it be and arrange everything else lol.

I understand where you are coming from though because we also had to book a family friendly hotel. For the same reasons, we have a 5 month old daughter coming with us and I have a sister who is bringing her children as well. We almost booked Beaches but our TA said it wasn't in our price range and would be too steep for what we had set our budget for. But our TA told us if we were willing to pay the price it was the next best thing to Sandals for those who need a family friendly resort. I did like the daycare option though.
I think everything will be fine after all its what you make it. Just make sure that you do some adult activities and take full advantage of those daycare facilities that they have.

So then I found BDW and saw that there were so few brides booked with Beaches and I was like, wait!! Why is no one else booking with Beaches? What's wrong; did I pick the wrong resort?!?! I saw sooooo many other brides booking with RIU and thought for sure I had made a mistake. But you know what....the grass always looks greener on the other side and I think we all try so hard to make everything perfect that no matter how fantastic the resort is, somehow we will find a way to doubt the choices that we have made. All it takes is a bad review on trip advisor to send a bride into panic mode - but I think we just need to step back, take a deep breath and realize that we can't control everything. BUT despite not being able to control everything, we are all still going to have a fabulous DW
