    Hi we are planning on getting married in feb 2013, we would like to visit the resort this April and get everything set. I have been to several sandals resorts in Jamaica and Bahamas and liked the quality of the resort but worry about the ceremony and reception being private and not extremely expensive (under $10,000). We are planning on between 50-100 people.I would like to stick to an adult only all inclusive but any ideas would be great!!! Thank You!!!

        Congrats and welcome to the forum!  Jamy provided a ton of great links for you, so hopefully they'll help.  I've never been to a Sandals resort, so don't have any advice, but wanted to give you a warm welcome!

          Have you looked into the Secrets properties?  They are absolutely phenomenal resorts, all inclusive, adults only and they offer very reasonable wedding packages.  They are also located in various places throughout the carribean so you arent limited to certain places.

            Congrats and Welcome!

            A great way to get a feel for a resort is to check out photo shoots by photographers that have covered that resort!  You get to see pictures of multiple locations and at the same time getting a glimpse of what your wedding could look like as well.

            Happy Planning!
