Sandals Negril Weddings

Recommended Posts

Congratulations everyone!!!

 

Jamaicabride11-So glad you posted some things about your Sandals wedding! We are getting married at Beaches Negril on July 16,2012. Im so excited but super overwhelmed with the wedding planners from Miami. They really want you to decide on everything! GEEZ! I saw you went with the Beautiful Beginnings package, we are probably doing the same. What was the China like? They say its just the resort China but no one is able to give me a better picture. China isnt a huge deal for me, just curious.

 

I think I may want to upgrade to the arch as well. I guess I will know better when I check all the prices out.  DId you add any readings to the ceremony? The candles are an awesome thing to add, I like the idea!!  I also would like to do the steeldrum band for cocktail and a DJ for dinner, did you do these too?

So did you do the 3 hour reception? And through that you had a 1 hour cocktail hour in the garden and 2 hour reception on the beach? I would think it all had to be done in one place! Also, totally random question, but did the wedding officiant stay for the reception? I'm trying to decide if I need to include a spot for him/her at the tables. And do you know if it is possible to get a sweetheart table just for us, and then have our wedding party with the rest of the guests?

Hey Ladies, sorry I have been MIA! I got married July 22nd at Sandals Negril and it was wonderful!!! I know y'all want all the details so here goes. 1. I had 38 guest attend the wedding all my guest stayed at sandals and beaches Sandy Bay. Since I booked 10 rooms I was given a free private welcome dinner. For my welcome dinner we did an all white party. I choose pork chops n shrimp Alfredo for the menu. It was definitely a plus. Gave all guest time to get aquianted. It lasted for about 2 hours. The servers where great. Everyone ordered drinks from the bars and there was wine also! 2. wedding day. I got married at 4pm in the gardens gazebo. I originally planned for the ocean view but it was way to small at max it fits 25 (in case you were wondering). I purchased two flowers to hang on gazebo for 350. The served the purpose! Lol! I brought two bags of decorations along with my own sand ceremony cases. I did have to pay the 250 set up fee! The wedding was beautiful although it did begin to rain soon as I hot under the gazebo. They have all my guest umbrellas and the wedding went on as if it was sunshine. The rain did help it stay cool. Because on a normal day at 4pm it is still HOT HOT HOT!!! So if you are getting married during this time of year I recommend either a morning ceremony or the 5:30!!! 3. Reception- I opted for a 2 hour cocktail hour with a dj for 2 hours which was great. We ate in about 30 minutes and danced the night away! Due to the rain abs sine other issues the reception dud not start til about 630! So for the price I paid I was happy! 4. Hair I used the spa. Turned out great. Ask for Monique. Makeup I used Rashel Edwards my makeup was flawless. Airbrush is the say to go. .my makeup didn't sweat off at all!!! 5. I Did do welcome bags and my guest loved them. 6. I choose the BB package and made it my own. 7. Photography- I brought my own n she stayed at resort. 8. If you want to see pics you can find me on Facebook Christiana Guthrie just send me a request and let me know you are from this page. Enough for now feel free to ask questions!! Good luck planning!

Hi! I'm getting married on April 10, 2012.  Are you using the photographer from the resort?  I will be talking to the Wedding planner next week and wanted to know what others are doing.

We just returned from from our stay at Sandals Negril , we had our wedding at Beaches Negril.  Andrea, the wedding coordinator from Sandals, met with us and welcomed us to Sandals and attended our wedding at Beaches.  She was super nice and I saw three weddings while at Sandals.  We stayed in the swim up lagoons with butler service and DEFINITELY reccomend it to anyone.  My only complaint is it is at the endge of the property and the property next door has two guard dogs that bark VERY LOUD, and probably once or twice a day.  Not too bad.  DON"T forget to bring BUG SPRAY especially on your ankles and legs.  

 

Don't worry about anything else---they will take care of you once you arrive!

I stayed at Sandals Negril in 2008 for a wedding.  It was great!  I loved the rooms (I don't remember the name but we were in the buildings set to the back next to the swim-up rooms... they are like 4 little houses with 4 rooms each, 2 on each level).  From the map it looks like they are right against the road but we heard no traffic noise.

 

I love the 4Cs restaurant the most.  Delicious pasta!

 

I'm sure a lot has changed since 2008 so I won't say much more other than wherever you go in Negril you will love it.  It's my favorite vacation spot!

At this point, we think we are going to use the resort photographer and buy the smallest package, then encourage friends to take as many pictures as possible and set up a photo sharing account where everybody can dump their pictures into and share them when we get home.

@CBrewster (or anyone that married at Sandals Negril). First, CONGRATULATIONS!  I have 20 rooms (40 people) reserved with the Beautiful Beginnings wedding. I get a rehearsal dinner and a 30 min cocktail/hors devours after the wedding. If I want a dinner reception after the wedding, they want to charge $60/per person, which seems ridiculous since all I want is for the wedding guests to sit together (at an all inclusive, a set up fee seems more appropriate).  

Did you extend your cocktail hour and what did they charge you?

Did you have a dinner reception?
Was the beach wedding large enough for 40+ guests? One post in this site said no - but Sandals says yes.

Is there anything special the group should do at the resort?

What are some fun items you put in the bags?

 

Looking forward to hearing from all you beautiful brides!

 

Thank you.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
