    I'm a newbie, and I just found this forum! I got engaged a month ago and just decided to do a destination wedding(always been my dream), with the wedding date of June 19th, 2010. I'm looking for wedding sites in Montego Bay that are affordable, all inclusive. Prob a small wedding 10-20. I haven't seen any reviews for half moon, and I did like what I saw on their website, so I thought I'd see if anyone had any information to share!

    I'm planning on honeymooning in Negril at Couples Swept Away so if you've been there, let me know what you think of that too! Thanks so much!

        I have visited Half Moon's website too. I want some personalized information from them too. I was quite impressed by what I saw on their website. I also checked them out on trip advisor and the actual photos looked really good. Also there was not much negative criticism on trip advisor. If you find something out, please share with me.

          I got married last April at Half Moon and had a great time. Its a beautiful property and the staff is wonderful and very friendly. We had a large wedding - about 120 people - and I thought they handled this quite well. I'm sure they would do a great job on a smaller wedding as well, I would just ask if there are other weddings the same day/weekend..There weren't any others as far as I could tell when I was there.
          My family and friends still tell me how great a time they had at HM. Congrats and good luck!

            Aimee, did you use one of the Half Moon wedding coordinators or did you hire your own?
            I will be getting married there in April 2011 and am now just getting started with getting a WP and booking vendors etc. Would love any information you can give me that will help with the process of finding the right people and making sure that my day goes forward without any hitches. Thanks and congratulations.

                Hello Aimee

                 

                Firstly congratulations and I am sure you are still enjoying being a newly wed. I am getting married at Half Moon on 21st May 2011 and I am having roughly 50 guests. I was intrigued to see that you had 120, may I ask:

                 

                Where on the resort  did you have your wedding? I am favouring the Lily Gazebo Pond

                Did you use one of Half Moon's recommended photographer's

                Did all your guest stay at Half Moon if not did you have any additional costs for bringing them onsite

                Did you use the make up artists onsite if so may I ask what the costs was and how far in advance you had to book.

                 

                Sorry for all the questions but I am mid planning and any info or recommendations you have would be extremely helpful.

                 

                Thanks in advance

                  Mettie,

                   

                  How is your planning progressing? I am getting married at Half Moon on May 2011 and I am excited.  Do you know how many guests are attending or which location on the resort you wil have- as you can imagine I have so many questions and I am so relieved to have found this forum

                    I love the resort but I think it is out of our budget. I was told 350 and up per night and 150 for all inclusive plan.

                    I was online ans saw 4-5-6 room houses that when house is full it would be 125 per person per night (off season)

                    ... could that be right?

                      Tinasett14...it might well be right.

                      Half moon is now a rockresort, lets hope we some some all inc packages on their pricing plans in  the very near future...
