Newbie...Jamaica

Recommended Posts

Hello All!  I am new to the site...sort of.  I actually was on here a few years ago and right before our wedding, everything fell apart. dizzy.gif  It was not a great experience, especially since we had our destination wedding booked at Secrets Maroma, wedding dress made, etc.  But we live, learn, and sometimes realize everything is for the best.  So I am back, a better me, a better man, and looking forward to the future.  Nothing is set yet but he keeps hinting at the engagement and wanting to go to Jamaica, so I'm back just looking around at this point.  I don't want to be stressed later!! cheesy.gif I'm sure we'll be planning for 2014.

Welcome!! If you're looking at 2014 you have some time to make decisions and research. use the boards to let other ppl's decisions guide you in vendors they liked etc. Do you know if you are doing a hotel, villa or offsite wedding yet? Or any thoughts on what you'd prefer? Lots of decisions! All the best with planning :-)

Well, I think we will probably lean more towards a hotel.  I'm liking Secrets Wild Orchid or Iberostar Grand....but I have time to look at each and every hotel in Jamaica to overwhelm myself with options! lol  Just kidding...but like you said, a lot of decisions. Thank you!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
