Hi Beth!  We are only using the Beaches photographers.  We have requested one photgrapher in particular too.  I'm definitely a little worried about how the pictures come out, but I'm staying positive.

Also, what was your general budget and did you stick to it? :) Thanks!

 

Actually we have a lot of places on island that you can get married that are not in front of Big Hotels etc.   Grace Bay beach down near Leeward is a quiet spot near a residential area so no hotels.  Also Sapadilla and Taylor Bay are quiet for the most part but there are villas around .   People that get married there are usually renting one of the homes and then get married on the beach in front of it.  Long Bay Beach is not far from Grace Bay.   You can also charter a boat and get married on one of the uninhabited cays nearby.The Leeward part of Grace Bay is about a 1-2 mile drive from the main hotels.   You can arrange for the officiant/bouquet etc, we have 3-4 different officiants on island, all within the same price ranges and a couple of florists for flowers if you aren't bringing your own. 

 

This is a recent private ceremony Kellie did a few weeks ago in Leeward (there's one photo with the set up to see what it looks like)

Here's a villa wedding at Sapadilla Bay

There are a lot of examples on our blog, our internet is slow tonight so I can't pull a lot up but if you search "leeward" "long bay" "taylor bay" "sapadilla bay" and "water cay" you'll find more samples of weddings on our quieter beaches.   However remember, Even Grace Bay beach is fairly quiet compared to most beaches in the world!

 

Hope that help you visualize options.  Happy Planning!

Hi karamae,

 

About your concern over having an intimate wedding at Beaches T&C, from what I understand, when you get married on the resort, you can do a small intimate wedding option with you and your groom, an officiant and bouquet with your very immediate family on the beach away from everyone. Usually when you get married through Beaches, they set everything up for you and allow you to do a walk through to decide exactly where you want to get married. If you want to get married on one of the smaller outer islands, your WC on the resort would have to speak with the Weddings Manager to set up your small ceremony by the shore.  Theyâ€re all pretty accommodating at Beaches though and their beach weddings are very intimate, but if you can choose your own set up, then itâ€s a win-win situation for you.  Right now beaches is doing a beautiful beginnings package where your beach wedding and honeymoon is actually free with your booking.  I saw it on the link here

I hope this helps!

Thank you so much Krys! I just don't see why everything that says "wedding" has to be so big and expensive! Seems like the hotels charge a ton just put together a simple ceremony. I'd definitely looking for something more low key and simple. I love all the pictures you posted for me to see! :)

    • 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
