Seriously, where do we begin

I want a beautiful beach and pool for guests. But, I don't want to get married on the beach. I really do not want sand on my dress, which is why I Negril (the Cliffs) was appealing.
Anyway, most will be traveling from the east coast.

I attended a destination wedding at Sandals Negril earlier in the year on the beach in Negril, and they had the ceremony in the gazebo by the beach. The beach and ocean were right there, but the aisle was a sidewalk and surrounded by grass. They had a small reception on the lawn next to the gazebo and dinner later in one of the restaurants. So, you don't necessarily have to get your dress all sandy - many girls mention having their ceremony or reception on a pool deck overlooking the ocean, so that is another option as well. The cliffs would be beautiful though.

I agree with other posters that just because a resort is situated on the beach, it doesn't mean you are limited to the ceremony on the beach. Most resorts have at least a couple of locations - especially the larger AI type resorts. I love using an AI even though it may seem more expensive upfront, I really think it's a good value once you figure in the food and drinks (especially your bar bill!!).
So I think the first step is picking a resort that you like - there is tons of information on this board, including some very, very helpful TA's who can provide lots of insight and assist in finding a resort that fits your requirements - whether you decide to go with an AI or not. Then you can narrow down the date based on the resort availibility and pricing - for example, I think May would probably be slightly cheaper than June/July when kids are out of school and families start to travel.
And once you get the resort and date picked, you can move on to the fun stuff
