    Hello everyone,

     

    I have  tried to find a thread on Golden Eye resort as a ceremony location, but have been unable to find any. Has anyone had any experiences with Golden Eye in Jamaica?

     

    The other venue I like is Firefly, but was told that they do weddings anymore. Has anyone else got this as well?

     

    I would also be open to anyone's suggestions of off resort locations in Jamaica or if you already know of a thread with this info.

     

    Happy planning!

        We are looking at either Negril or Ocho Rios. I don't want to get married in Montego Bay. We are finalizing our decision of where this week :)

            We are actually looking at Moondance cliffs, but I think it may be out of our budget and I was told they do not allow children under the age of 12. Have you had any experiences with either of the places listed below? I haven't heard of Negril escape

              I hear yah... Moondance is pretty expensive we looked in to it as well, but it is out of our price range. It's a beautiful place tho. We stayed there for a couple of nights rooms are very comfortable, clean. I'm having my wedding at Negril Escape. The person that we are dealing with are pretty accomodating they worked with our budget. I've seen the place last year, it's pretty nice. They can accommodate up to 100 guests if I'm not mistaken. If you need more info let me know :) a friend of mine who is just started her business as a wedding planner/travel agent is helping me with all the wedding details and communicating with Negril Escape and other vendors

                mzthan6- have you heard of firefly? I really had my heart set on it and out wedding planner said they no longer do weddings :(.Does your planner have any insight into the whole situation with Firefly?

                 

                We got pricing back from moondance and it is definately WAY above our budget. They also require you to stay a minimum of 3 nights with guests. I can not imagine asking my guests to change resorts half way through and pay almost $1000 more than it would cost for everyone to stay at one resort. Is Negril Escape a resort? do you have any links to it? Have you booked your wedding yet?

                  sooncb - i've heard of them but not too sure where their exact location.  whenever we go to Negril we stay on the cliffside.  I was checking online and this is what i found about firefly http://www.jamaicali.../weddings.html  let me know what exactly are you looking for for your wedding and i'll ask my friend if she can find out the situation with firefly.  i know how you feel about having your wedding at a particular place and not getting it :( i was in the same situation with you.  we wanted to book this villa but that didn't happen. :( i'm still pissed about the owner and the wedding planner in Jamaica.

                   

                  btw, i did book

                    Our wedding planner is looking into the whole firefly situation. She will be in Jamaica for about a week next week. I would really like a truly off resort wedding and not a wedding at another resort. What happened with your previous location?
