We brought our own vows (attached), but it just seemed obvious when to pour. I just talked through it with my husband so he knew when to start pouring as well.-Did anyone use beach sand? Did you have any problems getting it through customs? We used beach sand as we liked the look of it better than colors. We also loved the idea of having sand from the same beach that we were married on. No problems through customs at all, although, they didn't ask and we didn't specificy. Thanks in advance! 2 more weeks, eek!!! Let me know if you have more questions. Good luck! Sand Ceremony.doc

I would make sure that you specify that you do want rum in your meeting. When I was in planning stages like 6 mths ago, a lot of the brides said to make sure that you specify if you DON'T want rum because otherwise they automatically put it in there. Chandyln asked me if I wanted rum. I prefer to drink my rum so I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't in the cake. Good luck!

I would love to have chocolate cake..*lol* sounds funny in jamaica but I love chocolate cake Our cake was chocolate with like a whipped cream frosting.... Honestly, the cake wasn't even important to us, and it ended up being one of the best desserts that we had when we were there! Just ask Chandlyn in your meeting!
  9. You can actually have rum in the cake that RIU makes... I asked to confirm that we didn't have rum and Chandlyn said that having rum is definitely an option. This is an option even with the free cake.
  10. We went to Tensing Pen for our honeymoon and LOVED it! My review is posted on Tripadvisor. Let me know if you want pics and I will email you. I also have a wedding coordinator (is an American who moved to Jamaica)contact who has done weddings there if you want.
  11. We used the DJ and I brought 3 burned CD's in the order that I wanted them played. At first the DJ seemed a little "annoyed" that he couldn't play whatever music, but he ended up asking me if he could burn copies half-way through! It ended up working out perfectly. We played a lot of Bob Marley in the beginning, but went to some traditional 50's, 60's then to some new top 40 at the end.
  12. We didn't get any of that either, but we did get the ocean suite upgrade. We were even half-expecting the breakfast, but we ended up waking up and meeting family/friends anyways! Maybe you should ask Chandlyn in your meeting about the breakfast?
