Couting down the days to Jamaica!

Recommended Posts

First of all what a GREAT board, I am disappointed it took me this long to find it!

 

My name is Lucy, and I am getting married on the beach at Couples Swept Away in Negril, Jamaica in less than a month on June 18, 2010. My fiance Joe proposed May 27, 2009 and we quickly decided to be wed in Jamaica. I have always pictured my wedding on the beach, and we originally were looking at Hawaii, but it wasn't in our budget.

 

We are also having a reception back home on July 10 for those who cannot attend our ceremony. I originally wanted a BBQ in the park, but it has turned into a traditional reception in a banquet hall. Much more money and planning than I expected, but it will be worth it!

 

In the past couple weeks, I have gone into panic mode realizing how close it is and I'm even losing sleep thinking about how I'm going to get it all done! I'm sure you all know what I mean!

 

I look forward to gathering and sharing information with you ladies. You all seem so nice :)

Hi Lucy! Welcome to the site and congrats! We are doing a traditional AHR too, so I know all the planning you are doing. We chose to make the destination wedding less formal though...so less planning in Jamaica for me :) Your date is right around the corner, so relax, enjoy and have a wonderful trip!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
