    I was wondering if anyone who has already been married at Sandals Negril had any food advice from the rehersal and reception dinner options. My coordinator said she couldnt send me pictures......Any suggestions for any must have foods Thanks! -Andrea

      If you are getting both in your package, they provide a menu for you to chose from. Unfortunately I don't have the rehearsal one saved still but the reception one with the choices are listed in my planning bio. I also have pics from both events in my married bio too. The food was great for the events, we went with mostly the seafood options since we were in the Caribbean but then also got chicken for those who do not like seafood.

          For rehearsal dinner, there are 4 different options. If I remember correctly, it comes with an appetizer, entree (2 choices so the guest can choose) and one dessert. You and your FI have to pick it out beforehand. Than for the reception, it's kind the same thing but you can mix and match.
          So there was not a charge to have 2 options, they are nice and consider that not everyone likes the same thing =)

            One thing to consider is that you must have at least 10 ppl for the two options !

            At the wedding I was at in November the bride had two dinner options. Steak and mahi mahi. Myself and my assistant had the steak and it was absolutely fantastic!! The mahi mahi looked good. I do have pictures of both, if you'd like to see the presentation.

              I'm getting married at Sandals Ocho Rios but I assume the rehearsal dinner set up is the same. Am I understanding that the rehearsal dinner is an actual sit down dinner? I was kind of hoping for a more relaxed atmosphere for the guests to get to know each other.

                I think it is served buffet style.

                  At the wedding I attended in February at Sandals Negril, the rehearsal dinner was a sitdown dinner with a set menu (but I think there were two entree options). There were about 30 guests there, if that makes a difference.

                    If you want a buffet style dinner they can definately accomodate that without a problem all you'll need to do is let them know ahead of time!
