Anyone Marry at Royal Caribbean?

Recommended Posts

Hey girls,

 

I posted this is the Sandals forum but someone said I should try here also! So help me out!! feedback.gif

 

 

I'm getting married in 7 weeks at the Sandals Royal Caribbean in Mobay and was wondering if anyone else was married there?

I have a few questions and am not sure where to turn. I like being organized and know what is going on 100% of the time and this is driving me nuts!

Did you do the private dinner? (That costs and I don't understand WHY when its an all inclusive resort.)

I'd like to send an itinerary for the wedding day, but how can I don that when I don't know what to do about the dinner?

Did you just make reservations for your party to eat at and hope you all sat together? (its only 12 people)

And how did the wedding reception flow? like get married on beach and immediatly move to garden recption or what?

 

Thanks ahead of time!

Hi, I am getting married at Sandals and I think that regardless of the location, the details are the same so I am happy to share the information I have with you to help you firm up your decision. Feel free to PM me anytime.

 

I finally decided to have my reception offsite because I found that SGOR wasn't very accomodating to my needs. I had no problem paying extra for the reception, but if I'm going to pay $50 a person for a sit-down reception, I want it to last longer than 2 hours and I wanted more flexibility with the menu. (There is just one set menu that is not customizable.) I didn't want to spend the $50 on a menu I hated, so I considered doing the buffet reception with hot and cold h'ors for $25 pp, but then the reception would only last an hour! To extend the reception to 2 hors increased the price to $50 pp!

 

Needless to say, I'm having my reception at Evitas restaurant in downtown Ocho Rios for $45 pp with a better food selection, custom drinks made just for FI and MI, a reggae band and the party will last 3 hours!

 

Good luck with your decisions. I'm happy to send you the price sheets, menu lists, etc. for Sandals receptions though.

Oh, and I did consider just making a reservation at one of the restaurants, but I'm having about 45 guests and decided not to take the chance since it seems that it takes a while to be seated at most of the restaurants. I didn't want to have that gamble with so many people.

Hey,

 

Thanks for your answers. I spoke to a Sandals wedding cordinator and had her send me price sheets and such. We are setting up the quick 1 hour reception in the garden for $25pp. She said my butler would have no problem setting up a dinner reservation for 12pp. So hopefully it works, if not they can have a reception and I can just say it was planned that way! haha

Its not to formal since there are only 12 of us but nice and small.

 

Thanks again! Congrats and good luck with your wedding!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
