  1. Hello everyone, I am finally getting a few minutes to post on here as the last few weeks of my life have been crazy busy! We were in Jamaica from 4/12-4/23 and had a blast! I LOVE Jamaica. All i can think about is when can i go back! Our Reception for our friends and family was Friday 4/25, literally 36 hours after we got home. That was great as well! For those of you who are a little aprehensive about Chandlyn, dont worry at all. I was getting worried the week before we left as she was not answering any of my emails and we were leaving in like 2 days! We got there on Saturday and went to lunch over at Mamme Bay. Chandlyn was actually in there setting up a dinner table and i went over an introduced myself. She is very nice and professional. We met again on Monday morning and went over everything. She is calm and quiet and whatever you ask of her, she will do with a smile Of course, just my luck, i woke up on my wedding day and it was raining sideways, black clouds and just nasty outside! I freaked out! After talking with my best friend on the phone for 20 mins, i was finally okay. We went and talked to Chandlyn and she said dont worry, hopefully it will clear up. 1:00 came and the rain stopped and the sun started to come out. We were able to have the wedding right on time and it was beautiful! We were upgraded to an amazing room right above the wedding gazebo. The room was huge! Big shower, double sinks, jacuzzi, gorgeous bed, living room and huge balcony overlooking the wedding gazebo on the beach. When we got to the room, i literally had tears in my eyes it was so gorgeous! I will hopefully get some more time to write a full review, but right now i just wanted to share with you as much as i could. We are actually right in the middle of starting a photography business, so i can only share a few pics now. Once our site is up and running i promise i will share all of the pics! My dad who is a professional photographer only took 800 the day of the wedding and 500 on my reception day!!! So, trust me, there will be lots to see of ROR! We also stayed at Breezes Runaway bay for our honeymoon. It was absolutly fabulous! I highly recommend this resort to anyone who is looking to extend their stay after everyone in the wedding goes home. Its quiet, romantic, peaceful and the food is AMAZING! I'll share more pics on this resort as well! Reception at home---- Roostertail Detroit, MI

  7. Hi everyone, I havent posted in a while, but thought i would share some of my shower pictures with all of you. Our shower was March 8th. It turned out so nice! We had such a great time and it was nice to finally sit back and enjoy the day! The theme of the shower was Red Stripe- as you can see A friend of ours owns a Jamaican retsuarant and catered the event for us. Everyone really enjoyed the afternoon and was able to try some food and drinks that they may have never had before. I made all of the decorations myself and got all of the red stripe stuff from a vendor that i use. We also made a 5 gal pitcher of sangria- it was sooo good! sorry the pics are soo big- i dont know how to change that

    April ROR brides with room blocks- HELP!

    Hi Girls, I havent been on the forum in a while, been soo busy with work and wedding plans that i dont have much time to do anything else. We are in the same situation. A few weeks ago we were trying to get the last of our group booked and the hotel is sold out on the 12th- which is my wedding day. I still have 2 people that have not booked yet! One of our couples booked 3 nights at RIU and 3 nights at Sandals. Sandals was over $500 more for the 3 nights than the RIU! Does anyone still have rooms in their block that are not accounted for? Has anyone been able to get a discounted "day pass" rate for wedding guests? thanks!
  9. Hey Heidi- my shower is on March 8th, about one month before the wedding. We are having a couples shower (thrown by my mom and friends of the family). We are having a "red stripe" themed shower with everything thing from a huge bucket of Red Stripe beers, red stripe beer bottle decorations to all Jamaican cuisine from a friend of mine that owns a Jamaican restaurant. we are actually getting together this weekend to finalize the plans.
