I then decided I was leaning a little more towards jamaica...being its a little cheaper to fly to. Now I'm at a loss for which resort i would like to choose. At first I was thinking Negril.....I read they have the best beaches...however I'm not a fan of the hour and a half drive from the airport. I am trying to keep costs down, for my guests , as well as us. I definitely want an all inclusive resort, and i would prefer an adults only resort. Right now there is only a possibility of 1-2 teenagers that may attend. I have not contacted anyone on prices. Is there anyone that would be willing to share what their total was that they paid for the wedding? What was your strategy on picking a resort? Everytime I think I have found one that i really like I end up reading a bad review, realizing its not on the beach, or something else negative. Then i feel like I'm back at square one!!! This is stressful already!

 

Congrats on your engagement!! We loved Jamaica and are going back for our first anniversary. We choose Secrets Wild Orchids. After a lot of researching and looking at pictures, here is why:

 

- It's all-inclusive, adult only, built in 2010, liked the "look" of the hotel, only 15 minutes from airport, offered swim out rooms, and (most importantly) has it's own private beaches!! $5,500 for 10 days - received wedding AND honeymoon packages

 

We spent around $14k which included outfits (wedding and non wedding), rings, airfare, hotel....everything. We did not spend on extra items such as gifts, bonfire. We kept it small and intimate. Such an awesome time it was!!

 

6/28/13-7/8/13 Travel Total $$ Due Wedding Deposit...........$100.00 Photography - 3 hrs......$800.00 Photography - Vendor Fee.........$300.00 Legal Fee......$300.00 Sound System (1 hr.)......$180.00 Bouquet $185 / Boutonniere......$37......$222.00 Cake Topper.....$34.00 Tiki ($8/ea).....$64.00 Hair......$59.00 Makeup.......$49.00 Excursion......$542.00 Resort........$5,550.00 $200 resort credit Bank Fees (3% for out of state) $23.40 $3.00 Wedding Dress $1,473.56 Earrings $34.99 Shoes Alterations $435.00 Groom's Pants/Vest/Aterations $197.45 Groom's Shirt/Tie $50.30 Wedding Band - Raf $435.99 Wedding Band - Lisa $862.45 Travel Insurance $238.00 Airfare $1,528.40 Premarital Counseling $150.00 Notary $40.26 Shipping $56.20 Notary $10.00 Shipping $55.77 Total TOTAL AMOUNT $13,794.77
