    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 just thought of something. Does anyone have photos of the different wedding sites? The coordinator says she cannot give any photos of those due to privacy issues.

                      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.
