    Hey girls,

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


    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!

        I have no idea...but did a quick search on trip advisor. Maybe some of these reviews can help? Or maybe you can at least contact the brides from there...

            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!
