Please help

Hi all!

We would like to get married in Jamaica April/may 07, however after reading many posts on this site not sure which way to go. Both myself and HTB would like a small wedding, nothing big, have our 2 children coming with us- 9 and 5. Can anyone suggest ideal hotels family orientated, planners etc. Where do I begin..... Do I go through travel agents or independent planner. Does anyone know of independent plannners in Jamaica?

Many thanks



  • We are getting married in Dominican on April 10th, there's just the two of us and his children. We looked at 'Beaches' resorts - Run by Sandals but are family orientated with the same high quality.

    We plumped for a hotel we had been to before as there was a wedding taking place whilst we were there so we had an idea of what to expect. It is 5* all inclusive, which means the kids can do hundreds of activities as part of the price of the holiday.

    We have booked through Thompson, we went in and spent an afternoon talking about dates, accomodation and what kind of ceremony each hotel offers. Some give free weddings, some are really expensive, some offer optional extras and some have pretty complete packages. Shop around and enjoy it!

    Thank you all for your advice and suggestions.

    Clementine, we will certainly look into Thompsons and packages they offer.Good luck with your wedding.

    Jo, thanks for that, We stayed at Mo Bay last year and it was fantastic! hence why we would like to return and marry there next year. My HTB parents live there, so it would be easier for them too travel, my mom and dad included.

    Will check out tripadvisor

    Thanks again
