Grand Cayman

Recommended Posts

I just returned home from a wonderful vacation in Grand Cayman. They have really done an amazing job cleaning the island up after Hurrican Ivan. We saw a video of the island during and after the storm, and the damage was really awful. Now you would never really know that the island had been that devastated. They are building more resorts and shops too. We went on a dinner cruise one night, and a couple on the cruise was there for a DW. They said the wedding was beautiful. Their group too out the Jolly Roger, a pirate ship with lots of booze, for the reception. She said it was a blast. We stayed in a private home, so I don't have a review on a hotel. I would recommend staying on the seven mile beach though. We did go into the Westin and the Ritz which were both big and beautiful. I would recommend taking the sting ray city tour, where you get to swim with the stingrays. Rum point is on the other side of the island. They have a great restaurant, a nice beach, and hammocks. We went there twice because we loved it so much. I would also recommend using Red Sail Sports for any water sports. We used them for a dinner cruise, and to rent a hobie cat with lessons. They had the best prices, were well experience, and super nice. We ate at a resturant called Alfresco our last night. It was the best food I have ever had. I have the lobster raviolli. We went to the turtle farm, which I thought was a little depressing. I wouldn't recommend it. If you plan on having your DW here, and have any questions, please let me know. I will be happy to help. Just know that the island is VERY expensive. We were lucky to have a kitchen, so we didn't have to eat out for all our meals.

Hello! I am considering getting married in the Grand Caymans, and I was wondering if there are any other Grand Cayman brides around? I've been in talks with the Grand Old House; it seems like a lovely and affordable venue. Anyways, I would love to chat with other GC brides! Let me know if you are out there!!!

Hi Girls! I just wanted to share my story. I spent months trying to find the perfect place to get married on a budget. I hadn't considered the Caymans because I always heard it was expensive. However, while it is an expensive island in general, wedding stuff is actually incredibly affordable! This is because the Cayman tourism board is trying to market themselves as destination wedding island, so there are a lot of good deals. For instance, my ceremony & reception (incl. photographer, flowers, alcohol, dj, etc.) should be around $8000 (for about 35 guests), and it's at one of the nicest restaurants on the island. Other pluses of the island is that it is safe, a very short flight, and clean. Food & hotels ARE expensive though, but if you do enough research, you can get around some of that. Anyways, I just wanted to share that, because I remember how frustrated I was trying to find an affordable destination, and I hope this may help other brides. Feel free to PM if you have any questions!
