I first spoke with a lady in the states. Debbie. She has been very helpful,but not too detailed. Now that it is closer to my wedding date I have been given the on sites wedding coordinators emails. They have been very detailed and quick to respond. Leila and Shekiea. I'm very pleased with them so far.

oh ok. I also have been getting info from Debbie and was concerned about her being just a state-side planner. But I'm in the very beginning stages of researching. I haven't decided on Jewel yet (let alone Dunn's River or the Runaway Bay location) so I guess they wait until you are reserved and closer to the date before you work with the actual on site folks.

The dinner prices seem expensive ...

 

Thanks!

Your welcome. I think she is to mainly make sure you get all the right documents in. How big of a wedding are you having? Mine is small, and all staying at the resort anyway,so we were going to book at one of the restaurants for the night. I can't afford any upgrades. I now on vrbo.com you can rent nice big 4bedroom and up homes overlooking the ocean that come with butler,maid,and driver services included. You just have to pay for the food. That is what we were going to do at first.

Most likely an intimate wedding with immediate family and close friends only which would be 22 guests plus us 2. However, we can't really afford for lots of upgrades and pricey dinners so the idea of eloping jsut the 2 of us is tempting! I just don't get why the wedding dinner reception is so much when it's an AI!

FutureMrsBarr13,

 

Congratulations!!  My fiance and I are getting married in Jamaica next November 2014 and we just booked the Jewel Dunn's River Resort.  I'm glad to see you had nothing but great things to say about the Resort.  Have you had the chance to upload any pics of your wedding?  We still have not decided if we are going to go through the wedding planner at the Resort or hire an off site wedding coordinator to have something a little more private.

Hi Ladies,

 

I am planning the included Precious Gem wedding package and was just wondering the following...

 

If you have a somewhat larger group like 20-40 do you need to do any reception upgrades?  We were just thinking we would go to one of the bars and have some cocktails and have one of the restaurants booked (since food is included in the vacation stay) for that evening.  Any idea if this is possible?  I would think so but who knows....

 

Thanks!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
