January 2012 Bride!!!!! JAMAICA!!!

Recommended Posts

Just starting to plan my DW in Jamaica. I have always pictured walking down the isle on top of white sand with crystal clear blue water in the background. Just can't wait to get started!!!

 

Any suggestions on Resorts that meet this criteria:

 

- Turquoise water/white sand (for wedding pics)

 

-$1400-1700

 

-4+ Star

 

I have been really looking into Riu Negril, Iberostar Rose Hall Beach and Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

I got a list of all the resorts in jamaica from our travel agent.  I then took that list and narrowed it down, crossed off the ones that were lower then four star, crosses off ones that are adult only (we have kids coming) and then started looking on resort websites to finally narrow it down.  Once we narrowed it down to about five or six resorts we went back to our travel agent and she found us approximate prices and which ones she would recommend. Hope that helps.

I've stayed at the Grand Palladium (Lady Hamilton)...and the rooms are great if you get the suite. Otherwise, it's not worth the money.

And the little bit of sand that they do have is very rocky.

Hey there! 

I am getting married one year exactly today! And we have the Riu Ocho Rios booked. I picked this because it is kid friendly and my bro was married at the Riu Palace in Dominican so I am hoping that the quality will cross over. I think there will be positives and negatives to any place you choose, as long as you don't stress too much about timing (I have a feeling they are very laid back in Jamaica - lol) you should be fine. Surround yourself with good company and everyone will be happy.

Let me know how things go! Maybe we will cross paths!

I have been to the Riu Ocho Rios 2 times and absolutely loved it. The only thing that is stopping me from getting married there is that we really want to try out Negril.

 

Most of the rooms there are ocean view.

 

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!!

Welcome and congrats! I'm getting married next January in Jamaica too! I'm having my wedding at the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach on January 18th. I looked at all the places you are looking at now and I think they all looked nice! Iberostar got the best ratings from what i saw and i like that there are the three options of resorts, the Beach Resort, Suites, and the Grand.

 

I seriously considered the Grand Palladium but I didn't like how massive the resort is, you have to take golf carts to get around, and that they don't have as nice of beaches.

 

If you really want to have amazing beaches, water, and sunsets I would check out the Riu Negril. To be quite honest I really wanted to have our wedding in Negril but there will be kids coming and the only resorts in Negril that allow kids are Beaches and Riu Negril.  Negril is gorgeous and has better beaches just fewer options in resorts, we're going to Couples Swept Away in Negril for our honeymoon :)

 

Good luck deciding! Tripadvisor.com is a great website for resort reviews

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
