    Welcome!! You will find tons of useful information here.  What we did is first decided on a location, and then listed all the resorts and went through them all and narrowed it down to about six.  We then took that list to our travel agent and she told us approximate prices and some more about resorts.  Based on that we decided on a resort, emailed the wedding planning and booked a date!  Hope that helps!  Congrats and happy planning!

      We chose our resort, the Riu Ochos Rios, because we stayed at the Riu Palace in Aruba last year and we loved it and felt it was in an appropriate price popint to ask guest to pay for since we gave them about 6 month notice. This site has a lot of info, look at the pics of other brides, read reviews but mostly figure out what you are comfortable asking your guest to do. good luck!

          Me and my fiancee took a trip to Ochos Rio Sandals in Jamaica and saw a few weddings going on while we were there, I loved that resort and the whole sandals feel. We were thinking about going back to there to get married but decided on mexico instead. Good Luck with the planning

            Welcome...another Jamaica bride here.  We chose RIU Ocho Rios. I had previously attended a wedding at RIU Negril and also stayed at RIU in Cancun.  As others have said, you'll find LOTS of info on this site.  Good luck!!

              Congratulations! Jamaica is gorgeous. I would recommend Montego Bay, its right by the airport so your guests don't have to travel far once they land. This site is a life saver in the planning process. Happy reading!

                  Welcome!

                  I've just starting planning our wedding in Jamaica. We chose Montego Bay because it's close to the airport, and a few of the tourist spots we would like to go to!
