    Hi Ladies,

    I'm looking into the Jewel Dunn's River Resort and was wondering if anyone has any information on this location.  I know this resort is the former Sandals Dunn River.  I know they have kept most of the same staff and have seen good vacation reviews on trip advisor but I cant find any specific wedding information??

      Maybe, you could call or e-mail them.  

       

      They just opened so I couldn't find much information on them either but what I found was positive.  I was thinking of staying there but it's out of my budget right now.

        Thanks!

        These posts are a little old..but I'll see if someone replies! My fiance an I are considering The Jewel for our wedding in June 2013. If anyone has any experience or reviews about that resort in general? I'm a little worried that no one has posted much of anything about this place. It looks beautiful!!

          We are looking at the Jewel Dunn's River for October 2014. I would also love to hear some reviews as there isn't much out there.

            I have stayed here.....if that helps? I have some pictures of the property I could send you as well. Also check out Oyster.com...they had some great pictures of the resort and i think the wedding areas.

             

            Hope this helps!

              Thank you thank you! It was an amazing experience! Sheika and her team are absolutely wonderful. They will do anything for you and are very attentive. We had the Platinum sunset package as we wanted to get married at 5pm. It includes everything that's listed in the package. You pick the location of your ceremony a few days before. They take you around and show you the options, etc. The beach option was nice, however, their beach is very narrow (especially as the tide comes in). We actually chose the boardwalk by the pool as we felt it had the most privacy for the ceremony. Well, it didn't matter that day as it rained and we ended up having our ceremony indoors at The Moonstone near the last minute! It was still very beautiful and they worked their butts off to get things organized at a different location last minute. My mom and sister helped me get into my dress. Sheika has a team she works with, I'm sure someone will be able to help you. As far as flowers go, there are some flowers that they are unable to get i.e. Gerber daisies. I had the tropical bouquet that was listed in the package and they were absolutely beautiful. I would ask Sheika for pictures. She'll help you out and answer your questions. Photography - When inquiring about photography from the resort, they only emailed me two or three pictures to show me their work. that was not enough for me to make a decision as photography was very important to us - it's all you have left! We actually hired an outside photographer - Brian Nejedly. He was absolutely fantastic. Here's his website: http://www.briandesign.com/. Even though we opted for an outside photographer, the Platinum package still included some photos from the resort (18 5x7 photos). So we actually had two photographers (we had no idea that they would still take pictures even though we had an outside vendor!). Our resort photographer Kevin did a good job. I would ask for him to do your photos if you can. Enjoy the planning process. Email Sheika about the details, she will any any question for you and is just FANTASTIC to work with. She really put us at ease. Please tell her Ashley said HI! :)
