Beaches Sandy Bay Brides Unite

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies - I am going to be married at Beaches Sandy Bay in Negril, Jamaica on 1-4-12.  They are going through a complete renovation that should be completed later this year - YEAH!  I figured Beaches Negril has a bridal thread so why not start our own for Sandy Bay!

I would love to hear about your experiences w/ the on site coordinators - Chloe from Montego Bay that is helping me in the planning stages has been awesome!

I would also like to hear from ladies that just did the 30min reception - did you bring your own music, was it lame - do you wish you had splurged.

Has anyone utilized the steel drummer - was he worth it?  Do you choose the music he plays?

Thanks ladies!

Nicole

Over half of my guest will be staying at Beaches Sandy Bay so I will let you know how it goes. I think I am going to try the steel drummer so I will also give you feed back on that. I am a little worried about the condition of the resort because trip advisor has some pretty mixed reviews.

I know what you mean.  I too have heard some bad - but more good than bad.  When are you going because my TA/friend is going in February and meeting w/ Chloe the WC and she is also going to take a bunch of pics of the upgrades/renovations!  If there is anything you are interested in seeing let me know (although I have a long list of things I want pics of - lol).

PS - Chloe told me today that we could use starfish for the fower-girl and if we ask on-site WC she will arrange for them to be picked up after the ceremony at no extra cost!  Can you believe it? - something FREE - lol.

LOL! That is great I am interested in seeing the actuall conditions of the rooms and bathrooms. That seems to be what everyone complains about the most from  the reviews I have read. It would be great to see a pic so if I need to tell some of my super pickey guests to say at Beaches Negril. My wedding is not til 07/22/11.

I'll keep you posted - hopefully I can have some pics by mid-Feb.  I will for sure have some verbal info soon after she returns the 1st part of Feb.  I'm hoping they are ditching the bright, bold color scheme.  I know from Chloe my WC, she has said that they have added a club Liquid and Xbox garage for kiddos.

Information I saw on facebook "We Love Beaches Sandy Bay"  that I thought might come in handy. It was from Mark-

 

The following changes were made to the weekly events calendar:

-Sandals Select Luncheon moved from Thursdays to Wednesdays
...-Beach Jâ€ouvert activity now takes the form of a Picnic on the lawns (Thursdays by the Ixora Lawn). The programme still includes centralized beach activities.
-Romance in the Garden†- Entertainment Activity each Wednesday evening by the Ixora Gardens. Guests are entertained for the evening by Moses Beckford, while enjoying Beringer wines. The event also includes our Chocolate buffet.
-Managers Beringer Wine and Cheese Cocktail Party time changed to 5:30pm every Monday.
-Thursday Night - White Night “Charity Casino†with proceeds going towards the Sandals Foundation.

The following product improvements were made:

-Sundowner blue canvas roof replaced with new canvas. New colour is sand.
-New Awning placed by Bayside walkway and Piano and Billiards Terrace Area.
-Fixtures with New Beaches Logo (red) placed behind the Front Desk as well as the resort main entrance.
-Whirlpool that adjoins main pool was re-piped and re-tiled. Whirlpool now has hydrotherapy jets.
-Recycle bins (for plastic only) erected around the resort, as part of on-going Environment, Health and Safety efforts.
-Restrooms by the Piano and Billiards Lounge were expanded to now include separate male and female areas.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
