Sandals Grande Riviera in Ocho Rios, Jamaica!!! We are staying in one of the private Villas on the resort and I couldn’t be more excited!!!
- All Inclusive, includes accomodations, all food and all drinks (even alcohol), and activities (some add’l activities are extra). It even includes TIPS!!
- Not just adults only but COUPLES ONLY. My preference!!
- Sale included buy 4 nights, get 2 nights free!!! So we are staying 7 days and 6 nights; a full WEEK for what we budgeted for 5 days and 4 nighs!
Well you know I’m the BUDGET BRIDE and of course, saving money and negotiating seems to be the THEME of our wedding. LOL. So here’s what we did…
*Booked the room/accomodations only!! Then booked our flight separately. When booking flight, instead of booking round trip, we ***Booked 1 way to Jamaica and 1 way back from Jamaica to Houston!! Saved him almost $800!!!!!!! If you are traveling international and decide to do this too, be sure to have your passport PRIOR to booking your flight. You can’t book 1 way into the USA from inter’l destinations w/out a passport. You will be asked for your passport ID info during booking.
Now for the hard part…WAITING 4 months!!!

Thats one of the places we are looking at too. Either there or Sandals Royal Plantaion, which is right next door. Royal Plantation is more expensive but has better reviews but Fiance is worried that there wont be any people around our age to mingle with. We went on a cruise that stoped in Ocho Rios a few years ago and promised we would be back on our honeymoon.
Be sure to go to Dunn River Falls, it was amazing 🙂

Oh wheeee! This looks beautiful! You are going to have so much fun. I will look into the flight issue, I thought it’d be more expensive booking one way instead of return.

@bRooklynRocks:Nope. I took my daughter to disney last year in June and it was less expensive to book the flight this way then too. We actually left out on Delta and came back on Airtran. You have to play around with it first to make sure but when it’s worth it, it’s worth it.
@brittanym526:Really? Did you blog/post pics?!!!
@mzlouis2b: Royal Plantation looks amazing too! I don’t think you can lose either way!!
