    Mo, thank you soooooooooo much for your review! It makes me feel a million times better about having my wedding there. I'm glad you liked Michael, that's a huge relief. I'm also having my welcome party at Seagrapes. Beer pong is such a great idea, I'm definitely going to have to steal that from you! I'm sure I'll have more questions as it gets closer. You're the best...thank you thank you thank you!

      Hey Mo!

      Thanks so much! I've been waiting and waiting to hear about your wedding day and experience. I’m so glad your day turned out just as you wanted. I was becoming kinda worried when you hadn’t heard from Chandlyn. But I forgot you were in the place of “no problem mon”. I’ve heard to speak with Otis at the front desk before, so I’m going to try to speak with him when asking for my room upgrade. How much DIY did you end up bringing with you? It sounds like you bought a lot of things in Jamaica as gifts to your guests (which is a wonderful idea).

      I cant wait to hear your next review about your overall experience. THANKS SO MUCH MO!

      Oh, I have a question about the beach bar Seagrape. Ok, I’m thinking of having my reception (after dinner) there, any suggestions? When you have time (I know your busy, just getting back and your classes) can you post some pictures of your welcome party there? If I’m going to do my reception there what do you think I will need to dress things up?

        Hi Mo,
        Thanks for your review!!! As always, its good to hear firsthand experiences.
        I had planned on renting out the disco but I keep hearing how dark it is. I may have to think about this again.
        Anyway, I'm glad that all went well and I CANT WAIT to see your pics.

        Thanks again & CONGRATS!

            wow..thanks so much mo for your review..

            i have just a few questions..

            How much did they charge in jamaica for you and your bridesmaids hair?

            I think i read in an old review that u had a photo sharing letter..

            i would love to see it, if u dont mind can u email it to me please..

            Did u get any of the upgrades for the beach gazebo( i think its around $682)
            if so, do they have many colors to choose from or just a few..

            thanks mo..

              Mo, can you go to Beaches Boscobel and then come back and right as detailed a review?

              I would be so confident with the Riu after reading that!

                    Thanks for the great review Mo!!

                    I know you said there were no large weddings set up in the plantation when you were there but did you get any pic's of the inside?

                      Thanks for the long and beautiful review. I am so glad everything went so good. This info that you have given us is very useful and I am also glad to hear that Chandlyn can be so accommodating. I saw your pictures and they were beautiful as well. I love the gazebo decorations and all of your flowers.

                      Again, CONGRATULATIONS!!!
