I am new to this site and have just started planning my Jamaican wedding. I have contacted a few TA's and was advised to look at brochures (Thanks!) they seemed reluctant to really help maybe because it's in 2017 and they don't have prices yet. Hopefully you Brides can give me some specifics so that I can start narrowing down my options as I am overwhelmed with all of the choices.
I am looking at getting married in April or May 2017 and I am from the Toronto area. My fiancé and I are have 5 children between us and in 2017 they will range between 9-19 (I think some resorts offer for the youngest 2 to stay and eat free, but I would have to get more info on that). Because there are so many of us, we are going to try to keep to a reasonably low budget, but we don't want to cheap out either. This could be the only vacation we all take together LOL...they grow up so fast. I also want something reasonable for guests, so any info on their costs and how long they stayed would also be helpful.
I think a larger resort would be best that way the kids don't get bored and they seem to have larger food options for our picky brood. Two resorts I really like are the Lady Hamilton Grand Palladium and the Rui Ocho Rios. So any feedback on those two specifically would be helpful including per person costs. I realize the prices will be more by the time we go.
I am also confused on the FREE but not free wedding packages?!?!
I've been reading some very detailed reviews on this sight and they are amazingly helpful, now if I can tell if I can afford to have an awesome wedding/family vacation/ honeymoon on the white sand beaches of Jamaica
