Destination dilemma! Boscobel vs. Turks

Recommended Posts

My fiance & I have decided that a destination wedding is the best way to roll the wedding & honeymoon together to save money as I am sure many of you have. The dilemma we are having is Jamaica is cheaper to get to from Phoenix and the rooms are cheaper at Boscobel but I haven't been able to find any actual wedding reviews from brides there. The only reviews I have seen of the actual resort are on TripAdvisor saying the resort is very dated and isn't worth the Beaches price tag. We have a wide range of kids (10 at most) but ranging from 6-18 years old and from what I can tell the Beaches in Turks seems to offer the most for a whole range of ages (and the grown men who want to play like teenagers). The reviews I have seen from other brides here seems like Turks completely covers the destination wedding/ honeymoon/ family vacation option but I am going to have less guests and family the higher the price tag goes.

 

Also,

We are looking at June of 2013 and I think paying for the twilight hour (if I can get it) would be the best for all of my guests not used to heat/humidity but haven't been able to tell if it really makes a difference in the temperature or humidity (long curly hair here!) any advice would be fantastic especially at a 600 dollar premium!

When looking at resorts for my destination wedding in Jamaica we considered the Beaches resorts.  We too found that there werent many reviews from weddings and that everything suggested the resort was dated and old.  We did consider the Beaches in Turks too, however, the price different was astounding (a different of like $1200 per person).  We knew if we wanted our wedding there we would have to be okay with not many people coming.  Instead we found a different resort in Jamaica that fit within the budget and allowed more guests to be with us on our special day.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
