Hi everyone! My boyfriend of four years proposed on Christmas Eve (about time, Charlie! :P) For a long time I have wanted a Destination Wedding, and after discussing it with both of our parents (we will invite others, but it is most important to us that they are there) they are all on board and ready to go. We are aiming for late 2015.
Has anyone had their DW at Sandals Grande Riviera in Jamaica? I am strongly leaning towards it as it is all inclusive and their very basic wedding package is included if you stay a certain number of nights, and as this is the first time I am making a big trip (I have never left the SE United States!) I am okay with having the wedding and honeymoon in the same place. I just wanted to know if anyone has had their DW there and see if they had pictures/ask their opinion.
This is all so exciting and overwhelming, I don’t even know where to start!

I booked my wedding at sandals negril for July 2014. For us, it was between negril and whitehouse as our TA steered us away from the other sandal resorts for various reasons. So far, everything has gone smoothly with my wedding coordinator. If you don’t want the free wedding, you can take a $500 credit and use that to make your own wedding. My SO and I are eloping, so we chose that option. We also got a butler room! Very exciteD about having our own butler! Good luck planning!
ETA: I’m not sure if this matters to you, but they do not allow outside photographers, they only allow their own snapshot photographers and a small list of “trusted vendors” which were all over 3k lol. I opted to book my own outside photographer. She’s picking us up after the ceremony and taking us around for 3 hours with TTD pics at sunset. I also purchased a small 15 photo package from sandals so I at least have photos from the ceremony itself.
