Jamaican wedding; Ocho Rios

Recommended Posts

I had a fabulous wedding and it was only possible because of BJs bridal fantasies at Santa Maria Complex. I Arrived in Ochi to find my case didn't come!!! Typical!! No one can imagine my stress no dresses, no suit, no shoes and I hit the worst rainy season ever for my beach wedding. So I was starting from scratch organising a wedding for 50 guests in a foreign country. Help was what I needed and I stumbled over a Gem in Geraldine Suarez!! My fairy God mother. Before my inlaws brought their confusion I had venue, a beautiful dress (probably nicer than my $2500 wasted dress living in my suitcase now) my grooms men were suited and booted and although wet my day was better than I expected. She even convinced me the rain was good luck!!! Well Good luck anyone organising a wedding. One thing I learned though is, I only needed to jump on a plane with my honeymoon gear and get married!! No heavy suitcases no costly cleaning bills, I just returned the dresses and suits mud stained and dirty and recieved my deposit. No arguement, no fights, no fuss!!

Yes a wedding is stressful, costly, and everything of the above. I sometimes wish I just eloped and used the money to go off and travel the world but my fiance really wanted the wedding.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
