Beaches Negril Brides 2011

Recommended Posts

My understanding was if you wanted the photographer there for entire reception, you would have to buy a photo package.  We asked that we have 30 minutes with him after the ceremony, but he did come to our reception for first dance and cake cutting as well.  We did not have to pay extra and only purchased photos we wanted.  We had Colin as a photographer.  He was good, but the quality of the photos are not that great.

Hi, I was under the impression that no outside photographers were allowed at the Sandals Negril.  I'll be getting married there in December 2012 so any info you guys can give would be awesome!

You should look for photographer that will take pics just for vacation! I did that. Me and another bride split the cost and paid under 1300 each for about 1000 pics. And pics turned out amazing.

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?

Hello,

 

I'm new to this site. Im just trying to get feed back. I'm having In May at Beaches Negril.

 

I'm having about 40 guess so I would be considered a Wedding Group. They giving us a free Rehearsal dinner. Can any one tell me how that is, I just found out they are on the beach but no DJ or anything. What would we do for 2 hours?

Another question I choose the Ultra Package for the Videography, Do you think its worth the 1400 or should I just keep it simple with the 500 dollar package?

 

 

Also what about the Bridal Bliss? $280 for trial hair session, make up session, manicure and Pedicure, bridal hairstyling and make up the day of the wedding? Only reason i ask because since i have 10 rooms or more i get a free manicure and pedicure so its kinda pointless to get this package if i get it free already. Then will i really need a trial hair session and make up session they should just be able to do it nice the day of the wedding. Im trying to do as least as possible.

 

 

Did any one do the Catamaran Cruise for the reception, I think this a great idea instead of a sit down reception but I heard its knee deep to get in the boat afraid my dress will get wet.

I had about 31 people I think. We got married at Beaches Negril as well October 2011. Our rehearsal dinner was at a restaurant outside and we technically didnt have a DJ, but there was another DJ playing very close by. I dont think the DJ is necessary because everyone was just getting there, we were going around greeting our guests and just talking in general. The time will fly. We did dance a little at the end because the DJ was at the hamburger hut place.

 

I can't help you as far as the video. I got my uncle to video. I didnt mind non professional video, I just wanted to be able to see the wedding. He got footage pre-wedding, wedding, post wedding and other activities. I put more money towards photography, because thats what I really wanted. My friend is a professional photographer, so she took the pictures. I didnt have to deal with only having a certain number of prints, or coverage for only a certain amount of time.

 

Hmmm, my sister is a cosmetologist and she was my maid of honor, so she did my hair and the 4 others in the wedding. However if they were doing my hair, I would have either gotten a trial or had it done very early to make sure it was right. I originally scheduled them for makeup and trial, but I cancelled it. Before hand I went to a MAC masters class to learn to do makeup. Once I found the look I wanted, I took the picture to the MAC people, and asked them how to recreate it. My mom and I videoed them while they did it. They do one side and let you do the other. I went home and practiced. I was a novice at doing makeup, trust me, but you wouldnt have known it. I wear gel nails and got my nails done before hand. So the complimentary manicure did me no good. I got the pedicure, just because, but wished I hadnt because 1) my toes were done already 2) you have to pay taxes on it. But I enjoyed the conversation in there, so it wasnt a waste.

 

Definitely get the trials in my opinion. Also, I know you didnt ask but dont pay extra for a sunset wedding like I did. Just have the wedding as close as possible to the sunset time and save $600. I wish someone had told me this. I moved my wedding up an hour, because we were scared we wouldnt have any sun for pics, and boy was I right. So glad I moved it up. But they dont refund you for that sunset slot.

 

Hope I helped a little :)

 Thank you so much yes this helped a lot. Yes i thought about doing the sunset but I decided not to because i was afraid my pictures would come out dark, I have my own photographer friend of the family coming with me. I just choose the simple package for video which is 500 dollars and 200 for them to come on the boat with me. I was thinking about getting my nails done before hand too but Im not sure but ill get my pedicure in jamaica.

    • 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?
