I actually found the picture on the Half Moon wedding website (it's another resort in Montego Bay). For us, picking a venue was the most stressful. We got information from Iberostar, Half Moon, Hilton Rose Hall and the Ritz. Ultimately, we picked Iberostar Rose Hall Suites (over the Beach and the Grand). IRHS had really great reviews. While the Hilton was a nice property, a lot of the reviews said there were TONS of kids running around. The Ritz wasn't a "true all-inclusive" which we didn't like - we didn't want our guests not to be able to eat at certain restaurants, etc. All-inclusive was just easier for us. Half Moon was beautiful and we absolutely LOVED the property but we have a lot of young friends/guests and the vibe at the resort is definitely older. We didn't want something that quiet, even thought that is what my FI and I prefer. Iberostar is a great mix because they have so many dining options, night clubs and daily activities, etc. We thought about doing the reception at IRHS and the ceremony at the Aqueducts - which is why I have all the info - but the FI objected. He didn't want everyone to have to travel from the hotel to a different location. He worried about making sure everyone making the provided transportation, about bathrooms, stuff like that. He said if we are picking a hotel than we are doing everything there - and while I secretly agreed I did want my "dream ceremony."
Like I said, I hated the idea of a beach wedding. I was against it from the beginning; however, after I saw this picture, I knew I could be happy. I just don't want people in their bathing suits watching my wedding. Also, try googling "Marisa Axelrod Amazing Race Wedding" - this girl was apparently on the Amazing Race and had her wedding at the Suites. Her wedding was the first one I truly liked that I saw done at the Suites. It seems a lot of people bring so many extras - like decorations, etc. I thought hers was elegant but still done tastefully and didn't look tacky.
I wasn't aware of the 90% rule - we had planned on telling guests they could stay at the Suites or the Grand so I will have to ask my TA. To be honest, for a DW I think your guests will stay where you tell them too. Since all our guests will be booking via our TA, she is not allowing them to book at the Beach - even if they want too. That was our solution to that problem.
At Iberostar, their "indoor location" is a dome area between the Suites and the Grand. Yes, it's indoors but it's not terrible looking and if it rains, then there is obviously nothing we can do.
The other thing to keep in mind is that if you don't have your ceremony at Iberostar, just your reception, the bride whose wedding is at the resort that day has first pick of reception location, etc.
What if you found out if you can do a TTD shoot or something at the aqueducts?
