I'm trying to find a location that has beautiful beaches, great food, and fun for my 30-40 guests! Problem is, I'm on a tight budget! Also, I like resorts which feel tropical but not out-dated! I know this is a tall order...but I would really love to know if anyone has suggestions for me?? I'm meeting with a travel agent in 2 weeks, but not sure how helpful they will be. Any suggestions welcomed!!!! 

 

Thanks ladies!! :)

      I chose moondance villas in Negril. For those reasons but the real question is what does budget mean to you?

        Okay so do you want gourmet all inclusive or are you okay with buffet? By great beach do you mean private/secluded or just beautiful. I went with an awesome travel agent, if you want her info inbox me, she walked me though the same questions, for us privacy and gourmet food was priority #1 we didn't want a large AI because we wante out guests to interact not break into splinter groups. Moon Dance Villas is a small property sleeps 40 and older and overflow guest will be at their sister property. Additionally all of the guest amminities for the wedding are included. So at the service they seemed pricey but after breaking down costs at the end of the day it was far cheaper custom then a big resort plus it offers out theme of a BOHO beah wedding with 300 feet of private beach for our guests.
