A few questions about Sandals weddings

Recommended Posts


I just booked Sandals Royal Bahamian for this coming June. I would like to do the beautiful Beginning package but I have a few questions I'm hoping you ladies can help me with. 


1. How long is the actual ceremony? 


2. I was told by the wedding coordinator that it comes with no decor. I read on this forum that you can add things on like an arch or whatever but I'm a little confused. I read on here that you have to pay for the extras 60 days in advance. But I thought we don't actually decide on the wedding site until we get there. I figured, if we decided on the beach I would get some sort of decor but if we chose a different area we might not. So can anyone clear this up for me? 


3. I was looking at the photo/video packages... what is an unstretched canvas or gallery wrap? Also, did anyone do the dvd? Did you like it?


4. Did anyone get their hair and makeup done at the resort and if so, how was everything?


Thanks so much for the help. I am starting to get nervous!!

My ceremony lasedt about 25 minutes at Sandals Montego Bay. The BB package does not come with decor.The extra add ons that you can add to the BB package like the arches should be in the wedding kit you will receive that has the prices for the add ons. Any extras that you add does have to be paid 60 days in advance , however when we met with the onsite wedding coordinator they gave us the book to go through to add any extras at that point but we didn't. I made a point to have everything paid for before the 60 day mark. You can bring your own deocr and there is a $250 setup fee, this fee may have changed since last year.


I decided on a wedding site before we arrived at the resort bc I had read on here that the beach location  was not very private and when we got there this was indeed true, plus I had asked for pictures from my WC  of the different wedding locations at the reosort, and saw pictures from previous brides and videos which helped me decide on the location. My hair and makeup was done at the resort and I loved it. My hair was simple but I brought pictures for the stylist to see what I wanted. They use MAC cosmetics at thespa , which is what I wear anyway so I knew exactly what colors I needed as far as foundation and powder and I let the stylist handle the rest.


Check out the facebook page called Fans Who Love Sandals Weddingmoons there may be some pics there from previous brides that were married at Sandals Royal Bahamiam. This site is a good source of info as well. They both helped me.Just keep in mind with Sandals there is a charge for everything.


I'm not always on here so you can email me if you have any questions. taeedmond@yahoo.com.


Happy planning!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
