    I am trying to get ideas for wedding favours and I was thinking of getting Blue Mountain coffee since I will only be having about 12 guests at the most for my wedding at Sandals Dunn's River. My travel agent mentioned that they sell Blue Mountain coffee at the resort with the Sandals name on it. Does anyone have any idea how much they are and what size they are? I'm trying to get a sense of if this would be something affordable that I can do.

    Any other ideas for wedding favours would be appreciated as well.

      They do sell it there but everything that you can buy in your room (they set it up like in hotel rooms where you can buy food, etc) is kinda more expensive. We just went to a local supermarket and bought a bunch of our OOT bag stuff there.

      Sandals can call a taxi for you (think they are contracted by Sandals) so you can trust them. We got hot sauce, coffee & cold red stripe bottles there. Then we brought with us- chapstick, sun tan lotion, beer koozies, advil and took a bunch of brochures on Jamaica at the Montego Bay airport. They were a big hit and everyone used their little bags from OTC all week long.

        Hey Lisa,

        Thanks for the information. I guess I will try to get my coffee elsewhere. I'm just wondering though, in terms of the OOT bags, as much as I would want to do something nice for my guests I'm thinking everyone has their own preference in terms of personal beauty items and wouldn't people just bring their own anyway? As well, I only have about 10 people going therefore if one of us runs out of sunblock or Advil, we can borrow from one another. I guess to me, it doesn't seem to make sense to me to bring a lot of extra stuff that people may or may not use.

        But obviously many people are doing this so there must be some benefit to it!

        P.S. Aren't beers included in the fridge in the rooms? It's been awhile since I've done research in terms of what they include in the "all inclusive" price...

          We used that advil b/c we figured everyone can always use some. Sandals does not provide sun tan lotion, so another thing we figured that everyone could use (almost 70% of our guests forgot theirs, lol). Just throwing out some ideas. =)

          They do provide beers but only one in a bottle (I forget which kind). When you go to the bar, they serve you draft. Jamaica is all about red stripe and most of our guests prefer bottles over draft, so we thought that would be a cool thing. Plus I think most of the regular rooms don't come with beer in them. Ours did but we were in the concierge level. Plus we used the bottles for some cool wedding pics too.

            We are including many of the things that were mentioned above as well as disposable underwater cameras, candles for each room and bug spray. I do like the idea of blue mountain coffee and we will have to look into that. We got great hibiscus tote bags at oriental trading company for our welcome bags. They were only $9.99 for a dozen of them!

              i heard from my TA that the cheapest place to buy the Blue Mountain Coffee is in the airport. ha!

              im also going to the grocery store to buy things for our welcome bags along with the red stripe beer in bottles.
