    If anyone knows the answers to these, please let me know (specifically, I'm looking at Jamaica and Emerald Bay). Thanks!

    1) The group weddings page says it includes a private rehearsal dinner that can't be on the wedding day. Anyone know what the cost is to do a private dinner after the cocktail reception on the actual wedding day?

    2) It says now, no outside photographers, but I've seen pictures on this website from people's outside photogs. Is this a new requirement, or is it negotiable for a fee?

    4) Shot in the dark! - does anyone have any idea where I could find the dress worn by the bride in the flutter of romance package on the website? I LOVE it!

      As far as I have seen they only allow their photographers. I have heard of ppl getting around this by having a photographer stay as a guest at the resort. Because of this, the expenses for all the extras, and the one per hour wedding, and the limited times, we went with a wedding planner off resort.

        1) There are several reception dinners you can do for a fee after the wedding:
        -Standard cocktail reception for 30 minutes at $15/pp
        -Private Cocktail Reception for 1 hour at $25/pp
        -Private Dinner for 2 hours at $50/pp
        -Private Wedding Reception and Dinner for 3 hours at $75/pp
        I've been told that if your group books 10 or more rooms you get the 30 minute reception included.

        2)I've also heard that no outside photographers are allowed unless they stay as a guest for at least 3 days (i think, might want to double check me) I am bringing a good friend down to take pictures :)

        3)Can't help you there... it is REALLY cute though!!

        Hope I helped!!

          I know the dress in the pics for the Beautiful beginnings is from the Dessy collection for Sandals...so they probably all are. You could check their website!
          Isn't it amazing to have found someone who gets you 100%

            I am one of those people bringing my photographer with me. She'll be staying on the resort as a guest. Please note, however, that the resort photographer WILL still be present.

              Sandals Emerald Bay is just stunning! I saw a couple of pics -sorry I am not allowed to share just yet but the water & beach there takes your breathe away it is soooo beautiful!

              Yes, you can bring your own photographer- but they have to be a guest of the resort for 3 days.

                I brought my photographer in for my beaches negril wedding 1 month ago, but he stayed at Beaches Sandy Bay which is cheaper and 2 mins away and it was worth it as he was with us for the whole time. The BEaches phtog was there too and we bough som epictures from him.

                The cocktail reception was free for us, and the 3 hrs wedding dinner was $60 per person because we booked more than 10 rooms.

                Hope this helps.

                  The reception depends on how many guests you have staying at the resort. If you have ten or more rooms booked, the 30 minute reception plus the rehearsal dinner are free. The private reception for 3 hours is $75 dollars per person if there are less than ten rooms booked and $60 per person if ten or more rooms booked. If you have a facebook page, I highly recommend going to sandals weddingmoon page. There is a lady named Jody Barbato on there who has organized my entire group and she's been fabulous. Also, since they are paid by Sandals, you don't pay any extra.
