Yes, they are allowed on the resort without paying a guest pass AND they will be considered part of the wedding group. (Because they still booked the Beaches rooms through our group contract.)

The same package from Sandals would have been over $2000!
That's why I'm sneaking in a photographer too! LOL!! Sandals least expensive photography package is $1400. I have the opportunity to have a professional photographer book as part of my wedding group and she's only going to charge me $2200 to photograph the entire wedding PLUS give us a 2 hour model shoot. This is such a blessing!

they have 2 bouquets to choose from for the free bouquets at sandals, the carnation and the daisy bouquet. i am not fond of either even though they will match your colors. im contemplating having silk flowers done in the bouquet i want. i have been in contact with some vendors here and say it is very common for destination weddings and they will do what i want. just an idea for those of you that don't want the bouquet provided by sandals or that don't want to pay the ridiculous amounts of money they want for another bouquet!!

IrieBride-

That would be great if you would post the pics and info that you have. The pictures from the actual resort photographers would be helpful to see.

 

I don't want to pay that high of a price for their bouquets either! I think I'm going to get silk bouquets and bring them there. That way i'll get to keep them and they'll last forever!

 

Thanks

Last January I went to a DW at Sandals Whitehouse. I recently got engaged and I have been thinking about going back to a Sandals, maybe the one in Negril.

As for the destination wedding I was recently at, the bride used the free flowers for her boutique, but brought silk flowers for the bridesmaid boutique. The bridesmaids ended up being much prettier.

She was kinda disappointed with her onsite photography and recommended sneaking in an outside friend/photographer in. She just wishes her pictures were a little better. Hope this helps!

Congrats and good luck planning!

Ok, finally getting around to posting those promised pics. These are a few that the WC sent me to give me an example of the resort photography. (They are from the SGOR resort.) They actually look very nice...

I am also a Sandals Bride. We are getting married May 18th at Sandles Grand. We decide to upgrade to an Ocean front room. My FH has never seen the ocean so I want to make this is awsome as possible for him!!!

Thank you IrieBride! It is so pretty there, I can't wait. Their decorations you posted are gorgeous, but the prices are outrageous! The 2nd and 3rd pictures you posted of the couples have a bouquet that looks to be made of different colored daises. Do you know if that is the free bouquet? If so, it's not so bad as people have been saying. I think it's kinda pretty.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
