I never traveled before on a plane or anything….
I am trying to find a nice resort, To have my wedding at I have been looking at Sandals
Stay for one week, And you get your wedding. But I would like to hear or see of other options 🙂
My budget for this is under 1,000 per person.
all inclusive resort and offer the wedding for nothing. If we stay for 7 days
Thanks in advance for help 🙂

Could you get air and accomodation to sandals in Jamaica for under $1000? I thought Sandals was one of the more expensive all inclusive resorts in jamaica. I guess it depends on the time of year?
I never looked into sandals because i have kids, but their sister resort (beaches) is over $1000 for 1 week per person.

I stayed at Couples Negril and I loved every minute! I don’t know what kind of deals they do for weddings but I did see a few weddings on the beach while I was there.

i don’t think you will be able to stay at a sandals for $1000/week but there are many other nice resorts available in jamaica or dominican republic.
check with the sell off online sites for the best prices.

Also, i attended a wedding in Punta Cana (riu palace punta cana) and it was really nicely done. They have different packages for weddings, and it’s up to you what package to pick, i think the most expensive package is about $3000. I think they also have a free package, but like most, the free package is very basic. We went in April and it cost us about $1500 per person for 1 week, but they have cheaper sister resorts right next door.
I am getting married in Negril, but not at the resort we are staying at as i didn’t like their options but now this means that i will be spending more $ for our wedding.

Just to be honest $1000/person is not sufficient, nor will you find a Sandles resort anywhere even in the middle of July. I set a budget of $1500/person and even then out of the 8 resorts I narrowed it down to only ONE was under $1500/person (in the month of January though). It was the Melia Caribe in Punta Cana and my brother in law got married there over 5 years ago and said it was amazing so I am content with that.
From what I saw Sandles resorts come in over the $2000/person budget

@dominicanbride16: i also had a PP budget of $1500 and it was really hard to meet!
we ended up choosing a budget and family resort (Sunset Beach Resort and Spa – Montego Bay, Jamaica) and it met our criteria. not a 5 star resort, but the wedding department was fabulous and helped us put together a fabulous wedding! they also offered a free wedding package if you stay seven nights, but we paid extra for a private reception. the free part was the ceremony and you could book your dinner for free at one of the a la carte restaurant.
@SaraP2012: I just want to say that we stayed at Couples Negril for our honeymoon for 4 days after being at the first resort for 6 days, and we LOVED it as well!!! gorgeous, relaxing, amazing resort. I can’t say anything about the weddings though since we didn’t do ours there.
