The Jewel Dunn's River Resort

Recommended Posts

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.

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!!

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! :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
