Help - Resort recommendation for large wedding in Jamaica

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have been lurking here for a while and have gotten a lot of great tips and tricks when planning for our DW.  I am a rare Groom-to-be although my FI does check out this forum as well with my account.

 

We were originally going to have our wedding in the Mayan Riviera but due to some negative press and some uneasyness from our guests, we are reconsidering and have decided to choose a resort in Jamaica.

 

I would love some advice on possible resorts for our wedding.  Here are the criteria and details:

- 110-160 guests expected

- however, smaller boutique resort preferred - we don't want a mega-resort and would prefer sub-300/400 rooms as a maximum

- want a luxury resorts - a true 5-star or as close as possible - good food, decor/surroundings is important to us

- all inclusive is a must

- beautiful beach - whole reason for a DW for us is to get married on beach so that is important

- budget is approximately $300-450/room/night but would be willing to stretch that a bit if needed

- dec 06, 2012 wedding

 

Thanks in advance and appreciate any and all advice!

Hi, welcome to BDW!  Its always nice to have a groom on board.  I don't have suggestions myself, but I suggest you consult a travel agent if you haven't already.  

 

Our BDW Travel Agents. specialize in Destination weddings and can present you with options meeting the criteria you mentioned  I would copy and paste that list into an email and see what they suggest.  You can contact them HERE!

 

You've probably been here, but just in case:

thanks for the welcome and the resources.

 

we're definitely going to check out half moon now - resort looks great!

 

we're also considering iberostar rose hall suites and possibly the ritz carlton rose hall.

Hi, you might also want to consider Moon Dance Villas or Cliffs, or Rock House Hotel, Tryall, or Round Hill.  These places would also be great for a wedding of your size.  Best wishes.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • Please help me out, I am little bit confused in choosing the right website. As I am looking for a wedding ceremony script, I visited many websites but I found only three useful but still have doubt in choosing one. So I put a poll to determine which is the better option. Please vote and share your opinion. Thanks🙂 
    • Congratulations Kim and follow all mandatory guidelines and be safe. BEST WISHES both of you💞
    • It's so sweet, Nice idea. Perfect for a cute wedding.😍
    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
