    Hey Maddy,

    Congrats to your daughter! Here are the answers to your questions:

     

    There are lots of amazing places along the beach in front of the hotel that don't have guests occupying them. Those were some of our favorite spots. Also, right near the gazebo there is a place where they have the "beach weddings" if you choose to go that route instead of the gazebo that is perfect for pictures.

     

    What do you mean by book all details prior to the wedding? Are you talking about the specific wedding details (ie timeline, programs etc)? If so, yes I booked everything with the onsite planner and then when we got there we had a 15-20 minute meeting with her to just nail everything down and bring her the ceremony/reception items I brought from home.

     

    Yes, I purchased everything for our guests bags before our arrival in Jamaica. I just had family members pack stuff in their luggage.

     

    Hope this helps, feel free to ask any questions you like. Also, there is a GBP forum on this site that has lots of helpful info from other brides too :)

    Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions.

        Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions, I really appreciated it.  Were did you have your dinner and where was your reception?  Did you book your music for the reception prior to arriving, who did you use? 

        Thank You Again

        Maddy

          No problem at all :) Our rehearsal dinner was at the The Grille Steakhouse and our reception dinner was at the Dolce Vita Italian Restaurant. Both were soooo good. I actually used an ipod for the ceremony music and enlisted a family member to work it during that time The speaker system is right off to the side of the gazebo. So if you choose to go that route the person doing her music can most definitely still see and hear the wedding.. It's literally right off to the side of the chairs :)

                I love the wedding programs especially the wording about the photographer.
