Jamaica Newbie

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I'm a newbie to the site. Planning a April 2011 wedding in Negril. I wish I had a set date, but that will depend on the venue I book with (I'm still saving/collecting $ for the deposit!) Hopefully I'll have a date in the next couple of weeks!

 

Looking forward to connecting with you all. I can already tell this site is going to save me a lot of stress! YAY!

Thanks everyone! I'm excited...and I must say this forum is THE BEST! Much MUCH more active than theknot.com or brides.com and soooo much info. It's my new addiction! More time here than on Facebook! LOL

 

amandagee -- trust me i've been trying to figure an ideal location for a while! My best friend is from Jamaica and I've been with her twice. Unlike most, I love Kingston! Gritty and city - the REAL Jamaica. There's a place near there that I absolutely LOVE - Strawberry Hill - but I know that when you tell folks you're having a destination wedding in Jamaica AND expect them to pay $$$ they're gonna want some beach! Plus it's in the hills and the ride up is not for the faint hearted. I can see my mother and his grandmother now - SHEESH - we'd never hear the end of it!

 

So my fiance suggested Ocho Rios, because of all the different tourist types things to do (Dunn's River, Mystic Mountain, etc.). Let me interrupt here and say that I do NOT want a cookie cutter wedding...I've seen the assembly line style weddings that many large AI resorts crank out, and that's just not my vibe! Unfortunately, Ocho Rios doesn't offer much else that's in our price range.

 

So here I am considering Negril and only because a bride on the knot posted pics of a Tensing Pen wedding and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love!! So fingers crossed - that's where we'll be! (Fingers crossed everybody! And toes too!!)
