    Hello, All I am sort of new to the website. I am rarely on here, but I know this is a good website to use because I know a lot of ladies are really helpful. I really need some help because I am stuck in a way. My wedding is December of next year but I just signed a group contract for Beaches Sandy Bay and I found out that the reception options that they offer are a little pricey. :-(  I was wondering from any past and present brides what options have you chose and or alternatives? What vendors are you using as far as a DJ etc.? I just don't exactly how to stretch my money so to speak as far this wedding goes. So some help would be greatly appreciated from any ladies. Thanks. :-)

              I hope this isnt too upsetting but you do know that you can NOT bring vendors onto the Beaches property right?  Its their way of keeping their money in their pockets.  Depending on how many people you have you can try to make reservations at one of the Beaches SB or Negril resort restaurants for the "reception dinner"; you wont be able to personalize the room or tables though.  I can tell you that the staff at SB is typically very accommodating since they are at a "smaller" resort but I am sure they wont be able to pull a ton of strings for personalization.  

              You can apparently bring an ipod and they have a ipod station to put it on; I am "splurging" on the ONE steel drum player for $250/hr instead of the steel drum band.

              I am going to try and talk to my WC to see if I can swing just getting a bar set up and some tables for a cheaper price and skip the meal part so we can drink and all go to a later dinner together at one of the "free" on site restaurants.

                Oh no not at all. I already knew that was their rule. We are going to use the resort's DJ. I have asked other brides and apparently he is pretty good. I am not sure how many people are attending just yet so I am not sure what we will do about reception options. I just think its BS that we have to pay 50.00per person to have a sit down meal at an all inclusive resort. My Destination wedding specialist explained that it is for the service, so at this point we are looking at the cocktail reception that is included.
