  1. We had 60 guests and all we paid was the $1000.00. I don't know how we lucked out but they had the bar open for everyone as well. We paid to have the DJ and champagne as extras. At the end of the night we wanted an extra hour so we tipped the DJ and the servers and they let us keep partying.
  2. I used real touch for my wedding and I loved them!! Angels Accents.
  3. Thanks so much, I will pass that info along to her. I am trying to convince her to join the forum. I got married at the ROR in 2008 and this forum saved me.
  4. Could anyone tell me what they thought about the Riu Negril? My sister is trying to decide between getting married at Riu TBP or Riu Negril?? Any comments on the hotels would be great

They don't do the steaming at the resort Chandlyn takes it somewhere in town. My dress and veil looked great when I got it back.

What was your dress made out of (it's sooo pretty!) The dress I wore for TTD was different then my wedding dress. I am having a reception in August so my mom wanted me to wear my dress again. The dress I wore for TTD was made out of Chiffon. It was perfectly fine after. We went inside and washed it in the shower and it looks just as it did before. I thought we would have to throw out our clothes but after we showered everything off they looked good.

Natasha, which suite did you stay in, it looks a lot like MINE! LOL! Ours was 1407! I wish I was back there! I seem to find time to watch the slideshow every day. Our room was 1601 right over top of the beach gazebo. We watched about 15 weddings the first week we were there from our balcony!! I just loved the water and the sand. Definately will be going back for an anniversary. hehehehe

What is the best way? Any suggestions? I just put my flowers in a box wrapped carefully and asked them to put fragile on the box. My flowers were a little bent but I just spent a few minutes freshning them up and they looked great.
  9. OMG!!!! You look amazing. Congrats to you both.

  11. We just tipped the DJ and the guys working at the restaurant and they let us stay an extra hour.
  12. Thank you all for your beautiful compliments!!! I bought my dress here in Canada but the designer is Maggie Sottero. No I didn't pay a breach of contract with Michael. I told him it was a friend doing the pictures and no one bothered us after that.

Can you please give me some details on how things worked with Cora's photography? Did you have one photographer or was there an assistant as well? Did Micheal do some of the shots as well? Did you pay to have the photographer there for the week all inclusive or just down for a couple of days? Thanks in advance - after seeing the results of your pictures I don't think I am giving myself a choice. Also, for the trash the dress - which turned to some sexy pics by the way! It looks like you had a second dress, was that what you planned? Or is that just a slip of some sort? And last question - sorry if I am prying now, can you share how much your flower costs were...I may look at Angels as an option too. Your flowers, dresses and your men!! It all looks amazing~ Thank You!! We had so much fun with everything. I was a basketcase before the wedding but it turned out exactly how I imagined it. Cora was great. We just paid for her one week all inclusive package and she took pictures for us in exchange. No cash exchanged. Our package with Cora included our engagement photos, pictures at our welcome mixer, pictures for the rehersal, pictures the day of the wedding and pictures for TTD.She brought along her assistant/fiance. I didn't have Michael take any pictures we told him a friend was taking our pictures.I did use a second dress for the TTD I am wearing my dress for the reception we are having back here in August so I didn't want to ruin my actual dress. Cora had the extra dress so I just borrowed it. My flowers were about 975.00 in total. I had to have the corsages re-done out here so that cost me an extra $100.00. I think I posted exactly what I got for 975.00 on another thread. That included all the gazebo decorations and flowers for the wedding party. If you have any other questions feel free to ask your not prying I asked a ton of questions too
  14. Quote: Originally Posted by Jamaica08bride Were you able to have your dress steamed? If so, where? I know I've read previous post about whether or not the RIU can steam your dress but I don't remember seeing a final answer. Thanks Yes we had our dresses steamed. I just gave them to Chandlyn and she took them to town to have them steamed. It was $45.00 for my dress and veil.
  15. We had no problems bringing our wedding stuff down. We had both our suitcases packed with wedding decorations and two extra boxes filled with mugs and flowers. They made us open the boxes and show them and they let us go.
  16. I had my reception in the plantation. I didn't get charged for a mic but I paid for a DJ. It is a cordless mic so we did all our speeches at the head table. We did the cake cutting right after dinner and speeches then we did our first dance and mother/father dance. I think you would dance for a bit then pick a fun song about an hour after dinner to do the garder & bouquet toss to.
  17. The price to rent the plantation was $1000.00 for 4 hours. Plus we rented a DJ. I have to say the food was amazing at the plantation. I had the prawns and I could have ate 10 more plates. Our cake was free. I brought the cake topper down with me and Chandlyn decorated it. We had vanilla on top and Chocolate on the bottom. (No Rum) The song playing on the slideshow is David Gray-Be Mine. It was our first dance at the reception.

  19. Quote: Originally Posted by Mich Congratulations! Everything looked amazing. May I ask what issues you had with Angel, as I have also ordered my flowers with her. I ordered wrist corsages and I ended up getting pinned corsages and they were huge, way to big to wear on a women's chest. So I had to take them in to a flower shop here and have them re-done. She also missed one of the grandma's corsages and I didn't get my flowers until 2 days before I left to go to Jamaica. When I told her she missed one she offered no solution so when I took the flowers in to get made into wrist corsages they were so big they took out a flower of each corsage and made me one for the missing corsage so it ended up working out but I had to pay the day before I left to fix it.
  20. I didn't bring any other id besides my passport. Chandlyn didn't ask for anything.
  21. Congrats on being a married woman!!!! I remember watching your wedding from the balcony. It was absolutely beautiful!! It looked like soo much fun to dance on the beach.

  23. Quote: Originally Posted by DLyteful Oh, my goodness. Your whole wedding looked wonderful! You are making me excited. I hope mine turnes out as pretty as yours!!! I have a question for you, how much did it cost to decorate the beach gazebo? Did you like not having a runner? I'm trying to decide if I should have one or not. I brought my own flowers to decorate the gazebo but the tulling was free and I think she offers birds of paradise fowers on each side of the gazebo for free as well. The aisle runner was 45.00 but I didn't want it beacuse we were walking down the aisle with barefeet I wanted to feel the sand on my feet. We had steel drums which was $250.00 at last years price I was quoted and we paid for two chair covers, champagne, dinner at the plantation and a DJ and it cost us $2400.00 US.
  24. Hello Everyone We just arrived back from Riu Ocho Rios on Sunday morning. Our wedding was everything I had ever pictured it would be.It went perfect. If you have any questions please let me know. I have posted the link to our slideshow from the wedding and the day atfer trash the dress. I don't have all the pictures yet but you can pretty much see what the plantation set up looks like and where you can dance. We got married on the beach at the beach gazebo. I brought my own flowers and my own photographer. We had no problems with Michael and did not have to pay a fee. This is the link for our wedding slideshow. Natasha & Dustin
