    We are getting married at the Beach on March 12.  Happy to say that we have been very pleased with Santena the WC at the Beach.  We just submitted our "Last Minute Details" file that spells out our detailed requirements.  Santena sent that document to us about 4 weeks out from our date.

     

    For the bonfire, we chose to go with 2 hours after our rehearsal dinner (at the Japanese restaurant the night before).  We are having Steel Pans for the bonfire.  You need to have a min of 15 ppl for the bonfire.

     

    Since we are only 17 ppl, we are planning to have the wedding at 4:00, dinner at 7:00 in the steakhouse and then a cocktail reception on the terrace with DJ afterwards, starting at 8:30.  Those who are into it will probably head to the disco afterwards.  According to the planning doc, you need to have 30 to book the disco and 80 for a private dinner reception.

     

    Still thinking of having digipix do 12 pictures (free option) and then have one of our guests taking candid photos.

     

    Anyone have any comments or advice?

     

    Thanks,

     

    Bill

     

     

    Wanted to say good luck and enjoy your wedding and the week :D

     

    sounds like everything you have planned is amazin :D

      Im not sure if some of these questions have been answered in another thread, but Ill answer anyways.

       

      Selling tickets to cruise ships: They may sell day passes, but during my week at least the resort was never packed and I know that they were cruise days. The tourist spots were busier those days, but the resort was fine.

       

      Re Credit card charge: If you are talking about the credit card info that you had to give to reserve your wedding date, they don't charge anything. They just put your name in their calendar. I think the CC is just on file to charge the wedding to in case you bugger off after and don't pay. 

       

       Bill: your night sounds very well planned and should be a lot of fun!

        Just courious. Did they make you stop the party right at 1030 because we are renting the disco and i was just told that the music has to stop at 1030 and then the DJ will start again at 11 when the disco opens to the public. I was wondering if theres anyway aroudn that? like maybe paying a little money to get the music to keep going?  cuase part of the reason why i wanted the disco is so that when dancing started it could keep going till 1 am or what not? any ideas on that?

         

        Also did u send the DJ a play list?

            Hi Krista33

             

            Thanks for looking into this for me... WHat i ended up doing is going through my contract they provided to me when i reserved my wedding date with a fine tooth comb. I did so much research for a wedding photographer i didn't want to see my efforts go to waste. So i finally found that based on my contract all i had to do was pay $100 +$75 "vendor fees" How they came up with that amount is besides me? So i provided that information to Santena and she wrote back that is was fine.  If anyone is looking for the cheapest photographer prices in Jamaica feel free to message me. I spent a lot of time on this subject and finally booked a photographer. Now on to flowers.. lol

              Congratulations! I would recommend taking a look at the reviews under the Resort Reviews section of this site, and also take a look at Trip Advisor. One of the brides that just got married wrote a review last week. You'll get a good idea of the wedding set-ups and overall resort info.

                Hey,

                I am getting married there April 13 and I'm doing the semi private dinner because I only have 33 guests! I figured I would just book the disco after and make up for the lack of privacy I'm expecting at the dinner. I am getting nervous because Santena takes forever to respond to emails and the time is fastly approaching!

                  I had a semi private dinner and bonfire after till 10:30 then everyone changed met in the lobby for cocktails and went to the disco. It worked out perfectly and the photos of the first dance in front of the bonfire was awesome. Let me know if you have anymore questions.

                    Im getting married on April 23 :D....and the reason why she takes so long to answer about the DISCO is because she has to get confirmation form the Suites

                      Hi Bill,

                       

                      Were you only allowed to book the terrace cocktail reception with DJ following dinner because you didn't meet the 30 person requirement for the Disco? Or did they make it sound like this was a common option for weddings?

                       

                      And how did it go?!
