2018 Brides Saying Their "i Do's" In Jamaica

Recommended Posts

Hello!

My name is Ariane and my fiancé and I are currently planning our May 2018 wedding at the Royalton White Sands (RWS) resort in Jamaica.

We actually got engaged at the Bahia Principe resort in Runaway Bay back in 2012 when we were still university students, so Jamaica as our destination location has special significance to us. We are so excited!! We've reserved 50 spots at the RWS and have just sent out our wedding invites this week. Woohoo!!

I just found this website and can't wait to see what/how other brides are planning their destination wedding!

Any other brides tying the knot in Jamaica too?

Let share tips/tricks/ideas!!

Hey Ariane! How exciting!!!!

I'm also getting married @ The Royalton White Sands in Montego Bay in May 2018 :) :)

I am only in the beginning stages of planning... still TONS to do! I havent really decided on all the details yet, just chose the location of our ceremony. Our budget is pretty tight so we need to read through all of the options and see what works best financially. 

Maybe we can give each other advice/tips/ideas along the way... I am trying to think of ways to cut costs, so may not be using floral arrangements as center pieces, instead might be coming up with a cheaper option as long as it is lightweight and will travel well packed in our suitcases haha. 

Happy Planning!!! & Congrats!

Hi ladies!

 

I am in the beginning stages of planning our July 2018 Jamaica wedding. So far, I've gotten prices/packages for Iberostar and Royalton White Sands in Montego Bay. I like Iberostar a lot better because it seems to offer more in its all-inclusive. I am looking for lots of activities, entertainment, and non-motorized water sports. lol  I'm considering Ocho Rios, too. I really want an awesome beach and some of the reviews for Montego Bay mention rocky beaches :(. Also, it must be kid friendly for our little one and Riu Ocho Rios has a kids club/camp. What other resorts have you all looked into?

Hi ladies!!

 

I am just beginning my planning as well for our April 2018 wedding in Jamaica. So far, I've looked at Iberostar, Secrets Wild Orchard, Moon Palace and Half Moon. Our top two our Iberostar and Secrets. I'm so torn between the two. I looking for similar items, all inclusive with alot of activities and a great beach.  I originally looked at resorts in Negril because they are known for their great beaches, but it seems like it has more of a relax vibe and we were hoping to have a good mix of relax and partying.

Hi Ladies,

 

WE are finally booked in the Iberostar Suites Hotel after much much research and comparisons.

Definitely wasn't easy based on the many options.  Still shopping for decorators since the flowershops that are offered by the hotel is super expensive! Vidography and photographer still looking in that.  So excited!!!

    • Hello Everyone I am asking this question to have an important decision about wedding catering business which my friend suggested to do. But I am confused about whether I should go for it or not. As every business has its pros and cons. Does anyone know or does anyone have any idea about catering business or what challanges I would face while operating a catering business. I even have gone through few websites which I though that can be a good suggestion to go for a catering business. I have listed a few websites here please have a look once and let me know which website  Brisbane Catering

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel
