The main course is sit down and served to everyone. The menu is set at Mammee bay but you can move the reception to the Pool or Beach for a sit down for 50 dollars a head. They photocopy the menu and place it at all the place settings. Hope this helps!

Definitely go for the JBL mini sounddock. even if they dont hook it up to the speakers it can be turned up really loudly.

You said in your review, Michael will not allow the guests to take pictures? did they give you a selection to look at for set up of the gazebo (aka for upgrades, examples you could do)? I dont know if he does it intentionally or not, but my guests complained they couldnt get a picture because him or the other photographer that was there would either step into the shot or always be in the way. They do give you examples of

She baked the cakes here in the US (6 - fruit cakes), then carried them on the plane as carry ons (I had to make her two custom bags to carry them in) Once she got there she did all the fondant and stenciling in her room. She carried 15 pounds of fondant in her suitcase plus all her supplies! We thought they were going to take the fondant thinking it was bomb supplies! Here are some pics of her doing the cake in the room: Shutterfly Shutter

I actually bought my aisle runner from oriental trading and did the monogram myself. The cake oddly enough was made by my mother in her hotel room! She brought all her cake decorating supplies and designed it in the room. The flowers were actually from the free package. they just added white orchids to the list of available bouq
  8. I am back from Jamaica and OMG I am soooo tired! Below is the link to all the pictures thus far: Shutterfly Spirit Airlines - A- I have no real complaints about Spirit except that all the flights were overbooked and since everyone has to pay for their luggage people were carrying two of the largest carry on suitcases, which was painful when you are trying to carry a wedding dress on the plane. Riu Ocho Rios Resort - B The resort is absolutely gorgeous! The open air lobby is a welcome change to a stuffy bus when you get there and it has to be the coolest section of
  9. I would ask them if there are people who booked the date and havent confirmed. People tend to reserve numerous wedding days and the Riu forgets to release them. They can contact the people who have not confirmed (by booking a room) and ask if they will be using that date. But you have to call the main Riu wedding branch not ROR.
  10. When I spoke with the woman who does the booking there she said if you were the only person you can book when you get there, however if it is you and the wedding party then you should probably book ahead. The bonus is that booking ahead I believe you get a percentage off the cost.
  11. You looked beautiful! Congrats and thanks for the detailed review. You actually got me to stress less about my wedding!
  12. Welcome back and congrats! Cant wait to see pictures!
  13. Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous! You look so beautiful!
