Hello all

I came across this site during my internet seacrhing and was wondering if anybody could help. My husband and I would like to have a renewal of vows ceremony in Jamaica on July 27th 2011. We would like the ceremony to be in the Montego Bay area and preferably on a beach (as this is where we met). Iam trying to look at all avenues to see what suits our budget best. We estimate around 60 guests- mostly from the UK, US and Jamaica, most of whom will provide their own accommodation and flights. After researching I am trying to figure out our best options:
Hotels- many would like a large number of the wedding guests to stay on site, I feel very reluctant to ask people to stay at a certain hotel when they may find flight/accommodation packages which are significantly cheaper... Does anyone know of a hotel which has a reasonable surcharge for off site guests
Villa- I have enquired about hiring a villa and finding a wedding coordinator to help with the arrangements- however finding a beach front villa/ or one where we could have the ceremony on the beach in Montego Bay has been problematic- Any ideas??
Wedding coordinator- Can anybody recommend any particular service?
Catering- Can anybody recommend any good catering services- that typically serve/provide nomral Jamaican menus i.e. jerk chicken, curry chicken, mutton, goat,rice and peas etc...
DJ- can anybody recommend a DJ who plays Reggae, RnB and soul type music?
Photographer- can anybody reccommend a reasonably priced photographer?

Any additional information/tips would also be useful and very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Chantelle

Congratulations you both. I'm getting married in Montego Bay @ a mansion called Hummingbird Hall. They are doing everything (planning, coordinating, decor, flowers etc) and I feel very relaxed.

Their website is www.hummingbirdhall.com, Michelle is my contact. Best of luck!

Congratulations ladies. I recently got married in March at a small but beautiful hotel in Montego Bay. At the time Called Emerald escape and now Satori Resort and Spa. Couldn't have done it without the help of FirstDance wedding and events. They were easy to work with and took all the stress of planning and searching away as they did everything.They are located in Montego Bay. Visit them at www.firstdanceevents.com or on facebook JA firstdance.

P.s In the photos I am the bride on the horse.

Have you seen the Satori Resort they offer the venue only option?
Sunset Beach resort also offers venue only. NO need for guests to stay on property.
