Okay I have a question already!!! About your room at Sandals.. my FI and I are going back and forth with the swim up room and the private pool room.... Would you say there was much privacy with the swim up room? I like the idea of how the private pool room is secluded..

 

- Thanks Satara

HI Satara!  The swim up lagoon is semi-private. We were the second to last room, so it was a bit more private infront of the room but some of the rooms are near the walk ways and one restaurant.  We lucked out.  We didn't see the private plunge pool rooms (Millionare suites) but my  main isssue was there wasn't beach front for that option and I love the ocean and wanted the ocean view.  We went during slow season so not alll the rooms were booked and the lagoon never had more than 5 people in it. Each room has it's own section and then there is a main section. Since it's all couples, everyone is just chillin'. We loved the lagoon and had the option to go to the millionaire suite for a few days ( we were there for 10) but declined once we saw the swim up lagoon!  Here is a picture taken from an I PHONE at sunset from right outside our room.  That is the hot tub to the left.  313612_650742939273_50200716_33715318_2103592478_n.jpg

I am getting married in July 2012, but Renne WAS my WC, but she is no longer there and it's now CHloe. She was very good and did not try to sell me anything, but missed giving me some of the expenses I will have to pay, like that $250 set up fee for wedding. I am really excited, my main concern is getting all my favors, decorations and gifts for guests there. Any ideas or suggestions. I was just gonna buy 1 big suitcase and put everything in there. I am using the gazebo and having the reception on the Katt Cruise since the extra fees for a reception at resort is too high ( just like having reception at home), gotta pay for music, seatings, liquor service, table service. I want to decorate wedding ceremony, but I am not sure what to get. I was thinking beach balls and rose petals, but the rose petals cost $60 a bag and she said I need 3 bags...sheesh. Oh well, I am so excited though.

I am getting married at Beaches negril, July 2012. let me know how you make out with bringing all the favors and decorations through customs. We asked UPS how much too ship , it's $400 per box and the resort said you must be there to sign for it. I will take my chances with customs, there main concern is selling stuff and when they see it's for wedding, it should be ok. Any ideas? I am doing Beautiful Beginnigs Wedding, at gazebo and having the reception on the Katt Cruise since having reception at Beaches is too much money, its like paying for a reception at home, this way it's different & then we will all go to dinner after the cruise.

Another questions girls...

 

PHOTOGRAPHERS

 

Do you know if the photographer from the resort can be with you the whole wedding day or is it just for the ceremony? I keep going back and forth on the photographer... I really don't want to sepnd $4000.00 plus on  a photographer flying them down and such then pay for the package.. Who did everybody use?

I am thinking 40-50 guests are coming also and the cruise is $1950, it holds up to 50 for that price and then like $2200 for 50 to100 people. It's a 2-3 hr cruise and it's all yours.

As for the photographer, I am not sure how long he stays with you, I would think for the entire wedding & reception, but Iam doing a cruise for reception and they are charging $100 per hour extra for him to be on the cruise with us, I opted out and instead I will put cameras in everyones gift bag and ask them to take pictures for us.

    • 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.
