Beaches Sandy Bay Brides Unite

Recommended Posts

My TA/friend is back from her trip to Jamaica!  Bad news - the rooms are NOT being renovated - booo!  The exterior is being painted a neutral color and there are other upgrades going on: Club Liquid added, Tween hangout, xBox garage.  She said that this is resort is of course on the smaller side but that is the best part because the staff is more easy going and they get to know you by name and your likes/dislikes.  She met Chloe (off site coordinator), Fabriella (onsite WC) and Nicholas the resort manager and said they were all super nice and more than helpful.  

If you have kids in your group this place is nice for them as they have added the above mentioned amenties for them - they even have crafts and full day schedules of activities by age groups!

BTW apparently the resorts are trying to make it possible to do more personalizing to the ceremonies but this is in early stages.  They are also trying to get more tropical/native floral options for bouquets.  So, if you have a ways to go before your actual ceremony I recommend making NO commitments just yet to details as options may increase.  They are also discussing lower the fee for a sunset ceremony and I actually think this is pretty much a done deal - like $600 extra for sunset ceremony - which sunset was 6:15 - 6:30 just last week there and I think the latest no addl fee ceremony is 4pm which is what I chose.

Thanks for the information. Yes my TA told me about the sunlight option for $600 and that the resorts are trying to make it so that you can make you wedding more personable. I don't know if the changes will be implemented by time of my wedding though. Cause they seem to move so slow with everything. Jamaica time I guess...LOL! I was really hoping that they were updating the rooms... But oh well I gave my guest the options of staying at all three resorts Beaches Sandy Bay, Beaches Negril, or Sandals Negril. Guess the best part is that they should not be in the room that much. Do you have any pics to share?

No pics just yet; my TA is working on getting those to me.  I agree with you on the rooms - that is NOT where I plan on spending much of my time.  I forgot to tell ya too that lounge chairs on the beach are 1st come 1st served so we'll have to get down there kinda early reserve us a good spot then grab breakfast - lol.

I know we haven't posted on here in a while BUT I have a couple of questions for you since I see you already booked your wedding. I am supposed to book beaches Sandy Bay today and I wanted know what reception option did you choose and what were your prices like? Also did you do the free wedding package.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
