Looking for ceremony / reception location in Jamaica

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone...

 

After calling up a few places myself to find a suitable wedding ceremony / reception venue... I still havent quite found what I am looking for...

So any help at this point would be appreciated;

 

My first choice was Montego Bay for location... second choices Negril and Ochi Rios.

 

I guess one of the problems is that probably none of the guests would be staying at the hotel... from what I gather they would prefer to do their own travel arrangements...

Most are from Jamaica in any case and a few from Canada / US

Guestlist is 80 - 100 people

 

So far the interesting places I've seen so far (from browsing the forums) are;

The Ruins (Ochi)

Rui (Negril) - I think day passes are required since none of my guests would be staying there $50 p.p.

Beaches Montego Bay - Only allows 60 poeple

 

I would prefer to stay in the $4000 - $5000 budget for the wedding / ceremony... has anyone been able to do this?

I will be on the island for about 3 weeks but only plan on staying in a hotel for 3 - 6 days at most.

 

Airline tickets I think I have already taken care of (just about)... and hmmm cant think anymore right now.

My next post should be a little more coherent.

Hi Leigh... I actually saw that post earlier... I'm definately going to give them a call this week.

I will e going to Jamaica in a few weeks anyways and I can pass by and take a look, the picture look amazing though!

How many people are you inviting? I know some of these places have guest limits.

You need to check with the hotels to see if there is a minimum number of guests that are required to stay at the hotel, in order to have your ceremony there. I know that the RIU requires 80% of the guests to stay.

Thanks... they look pretty good, will definately check them out when I'm down there...
