    Hi ladies! I've been meaning to come back on here and say thank you for all the help! I actually got married back in May 2012 in Montego Bay, having planned my events with help from a number of you -    All of our events ended up beautifully thanks to all the advice and tips we received from helpful brides on this site. So this message is a big thank you. I'm now looking to give back where I can, so if anyone has ANY questions at all, please let me know.   We were lucky enough to do a scouting trip in advance of the wedding, and visited a number of hotels as well, so I can give you some sense of what would work for you. We looked at a number of "tiers" of hotels in Montego Bay from the ultra-luxury to the more reasonably priced.   We had our guests stay at the Hilton Rose Hall, while our actual wedding was split between the Hilton and The Ritz Carlton.The morning consisted of a Hindu Ceremony and some light refreshments. In the evening, we bus'ed everyone over to the Ritz for the Catholic Ceremony and reception. Both events were awesome.   We also had a "welcome party" at the Hilton, and brought on PACE (reggae band) to host our event. They were expensive, but worth every penny and made our party a blast. No regrets with those guys.   I did hair with Loni   We did have one regret with with our florist - Tai Flora - I would never recommend them again after our experience. We paid over US$10k for them, and in the end when they failed to deliver, they wouldn't even talk to us anymore - wouldn't respond to emails/phone calls. They basically took our money and ran, so be warned. They left a bad taste after a great destination wedding. (I'll post a more detailed review later about that fiasco)   Other than that - the whole experience was awesome, and I'm really looking forward to helping out potential Jamaica brides!   Best, Jaya

      Hi!  I am looking at the Hilton Rose Hall for my wedding and would like to know if you were satisfied with it (besides the flower issues)?  Pros/Cons?  I am looking between Hilton and Iberostar but Iberostar is so much more expensive it seems.  Did you look at Iberostar also?
