I'd like to talk to someone (by email/phone) to ask questions regarding their wedding experience. I am getting married at Beaches Negril in October and am just wondering a few things. Such as, did they allow you to do any of your own decorations without the charge. If someone would contact me, I would appreciate it.

we are going with the BB package and doing specific add-ons, such as the seaside serenade arch  (there is no arch included with bb if you get married on the sand).  I was told by Monica that they won't let guests into the ceremony property early to do the set-up, so you prob will have to pay the $250 unless you get a very helpful WC on site.  I plan on bringing it down, but not including it in my package with monica, then asking the onsite coordinator to do it.  If she won't, then, they can charge me the $250 at that point.

So we had our first call with the wedding consultant yesterday, and when we declined to do any add on decorations and said we would most likely bring some stuff from home, she said that we will be charged at least $250 for this and up, depending on what it is. When we specifically mentioned center pieces, she stated that they charge more then $250 for that, but wouldn't give us a number. I've only read on here that they will charge $250, so I'm budgeting that, but has anybody had any experience where they have charged more then this, or that they have actually gotten away with not paying anything. I was planning on taking down center pieces/table decorations and possible decorations for the chairs at the actual ceremony.

another question for the beautiful beginnings brides...did you do anything for seating place cards or just let your guests seat themselves where ever they wanted during the reception?

Hi Dymond6! I was in my best friend's wedding last June at Beaches Negril (my FI and I are going with the Sandals Grande St Lucian next April). She got married in the gazebo with the BB theme and had a one hour reception with a DJ on the beach (actually my current profile pic). It was great. The food was good and the service was way beyond expectation. They took such great care of everyone. We all then went to one of the resort restaurants for dinner (I can't remember the name right now, but it was the only one where you had to walk up the stairs to get to, it was italian/steakhouse inspired and was excellent!).There were about 15 of us and they arranged 2 tables so some did not sit at the main table, but the majority of us were able to sit together without issue. It was all so very nice and I am sure your experience will be the same. Let me know if you have any specific resort/location questions. Also, make sure to go to Rick's Cafe one day for at least the sunset. Simply amazing. However, do NOT use the taxi the resort suggests. They say it is $20 (for a 10 minute ride) which seems reasonable, but they really mean per person. They wanted $160 for 8 of us to take a 10 minute ride. You wouldn't even pay that in NYC. There are reputable drivers that you can call that will charge you per vehicle,not per person. Use them.There is a designated license plate color for drivers certified to be safe that you can trust. Also, travel the island! It is so dynamically different from place to place. You won't be sorry. Anyway, let me know if you have any questions and happy planning!!!

That is great to hear that you will be able to add on certain things. I have decided to just do the BB, and hopefully add the arch that is with the island paradise theme on the beach.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
