I haven't really been on the forum much since my June wedding but I wanted to respond to you because I know I can help you with this. I had my wedding at Rose Hall Resort and my reception at Day O' Plantation. It was the BEST decision I feel I made!


I heard about the restaurant from another bride on this forum so I started researching. The main reason was Rose Hall was charging an arm and a leg for the reception and I wanted to see what options were there before getting locked in. I contacted Jennifer Hurlock, who owns and manages the restaurant with her husband, Paul.


She asked me what I would like for the reception, including a cocktail hour and we were able to come up with a package that was both affordable and flexible. Trust me, they will charge you a crazy price at the resorts for something you can get for a WHOLE lot less at a local restaurant.


Anyways, I e-mailed Jennifer constantly with ideas and questions before the wedding and she was open, honest and communicative. By the time I actually met her in person (which was two days before the wedding) I didn't feel at all nervous. She knew what I wanted and I couldn't be happier. The place is really nice. It's up the mountains about five minutes outside of MoBay and is surrounded by tropical foilage and is very intimate! There's also a pool that guests tables can be set up around. It's, in a word, gorgeous!


On the wedding day, Jennifer and Paul exceeded our expectations! The decorations were wonderful and she used everything that I brought in, even hanging up the paper lanterns I bought. The food... was... AWESOME!! To this day, our guests keep talking about the food was great. And trust me, a majority of them are Jamaican so it definitely means something since we would know if they didn't like it!


Overall, my experience with the restaurant was great. Because it's not a resort, you truly get that one on one attention as a bride. It's a great way to introduce your guests to a real Jamaican experience (if they're not Jamaican). Jennifer will work with you and your budget and will tailor your package (meaning everything from the cake, DJ, band, food, cocktail hour, etc.) to the way you want it. You won't have to look for any other vendors yourself!! Definitely consider the restaurant for your reception! You won't regret it!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
