Kindly inform you that Free Package does not include the minister fees (around 300usd).
On the other hand please note that the Free Wedding Package is up to 20 guests, after 20 guests you only need to pay the extras for those services (cake around 5usd per piece and wine around 15-20usd per bottle).(*Prices subject to change without prior notice).

THE free package with upgrades is better.. you get more of what you want for cheaper when all is said and done. (I found)
2. We are getting married at 2 pm. Do we have the option of going right to the dinner/late lunch after the wedding ceremony? It seems like a lot of people didn't eat until 6:30. I really don't want to have a 4-hour gap between the ceremony and dinner because I think our guests will go off on their own and not come back for dinner.
DINNER has to be at 630.. but i think most people found that this was ok.. gave people some time to do pictures, freshen up, have a rest etc.. i had mine at 4 and it was nice because people got to enjoy the day.. but i felt like the pictures were a bit rushed etc.
3. Is the free cake they provide really that bad that we need to upgrade? I don't want to spend extra for a cake when we are supposed to get one with the package we purchased.
I BOUGHT the upgrade, because i "dreamt" about a big cake etc.. but honestly if you don't care, don t bother.. it wasn't an amazing cake, and i have heard that the non upgraded one tastes totally fine.
4. Is paying for a private reception really necessary or is there an area by one of the bars that we could just set up our iPod and dance and drink? It seems a little weird to pay extra money for drinks and dancing when we are at an all-inclusive with six bars where our guests can drink for free and a disco where they can dance for free.
MY personal opinion is definitely worth it to pay for the private reception.. i had a private dinner and reception at the poolside, and it was AMAZING.. beautiful location, totally private, nobody around (surprisingly), really fun, and a lot like a reception at home, just with a better view. I thought it made it feel like a "wedding" and not just a night out.. although the disco was fun too and we went there afterward (we had the poolside until midnight)
5. If we do a reception, do we need to bring our own decorations? I don't know how we would get decorations to the resort since the airline we are flying on has weight restrictions on luggage. If we don't bring decorations, is there something standard they can provide at no additional cost or do they charge you extra for everything?
You can buy decorations from tai flora.. i brought mine on the plane and it worked out great.. but you can get them there too, for less pain and comparable cost (if you are flexible about what you get)
6. Can we pick out our flowers when we get there? I haven't even thought about what I want. I thought we could see some samples when we get to Ocho Rios and choose what we want then. Did anyone use the free bridal bouquet and boutonniere? If you did, were they nice? If not, why didn't you use them?
I didn't use them, because i had a specific idea of what i wanted, and i wanted more flowers than the free package provided... i saw some though, and again, if you don't care, they really are beautiful.
It's going to be GREAT.. you sound so laid back, i think you'll really like it.. my guests LOVED the resort, and i had a lot of seasoned travellers and super picky people. Congrats!
