I was married in Jamaica nearly 3 years ago at a different resort but I'm afraid I'm no help as far as your rentals. We were only 2 so didn't have to worry about having all the chairs, etc. Plus our resort had a gazebo right on the beach that was absolutely gorgeous and that's where we got married. You could flip through vendor reviews on this site to see if there are any that past brides have reviewed as far as their services and see if something comes up there that might help you out. Otherwise, you could also google providers and see what you find. The thing is if you're going outside of your resort you'll need to find out about outside vendor fees. Most resorts charge for using vendors that arent part of their set up. Some of the resorts will charge upwards of $1,000, while others are quite a bit cheaper but if you're bringing in a photographer, a florist, videographer or anything else, your outside vendor fees could add up quite quickly. And if your resort does charge an outside vendor fee, it could effectively eliminate any savings you might find from another vendor. You'll need to weigh it all out and find out from your coordinator about the outside fees.

 

Good luck!

Thanks. The fees aren't too bad weighed against the savings. I just want to make sure the vendors are reputable. Thanks for your help

Depending on the resort, they might look to charge for bringing in your own vendors. It may work out very pricey to use outside vendors.We're getting married in Negril this December. We decided to get our own vendors to come in, as it worked it cheaper for us, as the hotels prices were working out too expensive for us. Also we'd gotten recommended vendors by my Fiance's sister in-law, who gt married a few years ago. We're using Pat gar wedding services in Montego bay, they are organising the flowers, linens, and decorations.
We're using WPAJ ( sungold's associates). Good luck with all your planning :-)
