            you wont have to worry about occupying ppl.... the day will fly by!!!! we got married at 3 and when we did pics everyone just chilled at teh bar.... the great thing about destination is it is relaxing and chill.... so do just that... let ppl do their own thing or hang out together and have drinks and just enjoy being all together!

              Your photo's look amazing. Where did you have your wedding meal, I hate the 't' shape table set up, your set up is exactly how I would like mine xxx

                Hi CamHo
                I had 80 people at a wedding there in May of this year (2012).  The wedding was on the beach and the reception was at the ballroom patio. Everyone had a ton of fun so I have no regrets at all.

                Tips: Don't have expectations for the wedding.  Just go with the flow of it.  Its Jamaica and you have to understand that not all of them have had the education that we have had. Some staff are absolutely awesome, but some you have to be more understanding with.  This way you won't be disappointed.  And you should plan out the itinerary of the wedding and what will happen since Keisha does not help with this.  I met with her once for 30 mins to go over the times of the ceremony, reception and dancing plus flowers.  That was it.  I never saw her again.  You need to plan when you want to do the toast, who speaks, what songs to play and when, when to do the garter toss and the bouquet toss.  I rented out the night club area which includes the open bar for everyone.  I suggest doing that, otherwise you have to pay per person for an open bar.  I asked for the toast in the dancing area but somehow we got it in the reception area, so just don't be surprised if there are a couple of hiccups – you’ll still have fun no matter what.  The staff were super nice and accommodating – well all except for the check out lady.  She was a mean bitter person with an attitude. 

                 

                If you need a cake person, Selena Cakes did mine. She did an amazing job and it was a Jamaican Rum cake with almond paste.  She does normal American cakes too.  Here’s her website and a link to the photo of my cake.

                  One more thing, with 80+ people you should work with a Wedding Travel Agent.  We did and we got something like $1000 off our trip price.  Everyone also got a discount.  

                   

                  Destination Wedding Travel Planner / Agent is Carmela Hartman.  She is AMAZING.  One of our wedding photos is on the banner to her site. It's our jumping photo and it was really hard to do in that heavy wedding dress.

                    Gorgeous Cake!

                     

                    do you have pictures of the ballroom patio reception?

                     

                    At first I thought I wanted a beach reception but then wind and food i imagine that being a disaster!

                      Sorry, I don't have a photo from far away on the terrace of the actual wedding.  Keisha can send you photo of the terrace though.  It was nice since it was covered and blocked the strong wind since it stormed on our wedding day. Luckily we were able to get the photos in before the downpour.
