Jamaica All Inclusive Suggestions? Wedding 10/17/15

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 


Looking to get married in Jamaica. Not really sure which city b/c we have never been. We want to do all inclusive b/c it is easier for guest fiincially. In 2013 we went to a wedding at the Riu Bavaro in Punta Cana and loved it. It was recently renovated and it was awesome. Ideally we would love to have a new feeling hotel so I began looking at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites. Just wanting to get some ideas so I can begin to contact different venues and we can get our save the dates out. 


Thanks for any/all help.

Hi @@brye858. Congratulations! I am getting married 6/11/15 at Iberostar Rose Hall Suites and did extensive research before deciding - it is the hardest decision! Are you looking for adults only, or family-friendly?


We REALLY wanted to be in Negril because of the gorgeous beaches and sunsets, but the options for family-friendly all inclusives were few and we wanted to allow for our guests to bring their children. We looked at the RIU Palace Tropical Bay in Negril, but it seemed like there were A LOT of extra costs for the wedding. The big deal breaker was that they do not have an on-site disco and with wedding receptions ending by 10:30 that just wasn't going to do for our group! No way we were going to corral people to go off-resort at that point and also no way we were going to be ready for bed. I was also not wild about the locations to have the actual wedding ceremony, and they do up to 4 weddings per day.


The benefit of IRHS (Montego Bay) for our guests is that it is close to the airport. It is also centrally located to both Negril and Ocho Rios for day trips, in addition to Dunn's River Falls and the Martha Brae river. Also, Iberostar does only one wedding per day - I don't have to compete with another wedding for a ceremony time or reception location. The reviews of Iberostar are all so positive and the resort itself is beautiful, that it put my mind at ease the most :)


I hope that helps a little bit! If you're okay with adults only you'll have many more options in Jamaica!

Congrats @@brye858!  We researched a ton of resorts before deciding on the Royalton White Sands, it's just outside of Montego Bay. It used to be a different resort so now it's totally renovated and very new-looking  :)  I have lots of info if you want me to email it to you.


Happy Planning!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
