    How are the locals?

    I was wondering about the Riu Ocho Rios resort. I've heard that the locals are pushy and everything you do someone has their hand out. Did anyone find this and/or did you find the "all inclusive" expensive once you got there and found out there is more money to be spent?

    my riu wedding in ochie

    Quote: Originally Posted by albianstar so i am back the wedding was awesome! Chandlyn was very helpful. We met with her a few days before, i showed her oics of the type of cake and flowers i wanted.. she took those and showed them to the florist and the baker(wjich she outsourced for us) We met quickly the day before for a rehearsal. basically it took 5 mins i just wanted everyone to see where they were going and when,she met me in my room adn escorted me to the beach so i knew excatly what to do. The pastor was great, adn you dont meet him before which is kinda strange. we wrote our own vows which he had no issues reading, he just didnt know what some of the words were like ebb,k and pronounced it wrong- no big deal. the weather was on and off clouds which kept it from getting too hot and it was not windy. We had champane served right afterwards on the beach. then off to pictures, micheal was awesome. we finally got a suite the day before the wedding which was awesome for the bridesmaids and ladies meeting in my room beforehand. als great for the wedding night, which however never did get decorated as promised and we didnt get our breakfast in bed as promised. in all it was great. we paid for the upgraded flowers, champane, isle runner chair covers, private reception in plantation resterant, special menu,steel drum band at ceremony, mento band at the reception and an outsorced cake, extra flowers. also paid extra to have a dvd made and have hte photog stay and extra hour at 90 usd , everything including the caprice package was 4500 usd. i will tryed to post some pics but it wants a url and i couldnt figure it out and got fustrated. so tell me how or look on flickr.com my account is colleen.crummy and the facebook group for riu weddings everyone who is getting married there will have a great wedding!!!

They are hoping to start planning the wedding in May 2009, but her FI's dad is overseas right now so it will depend on when he will return. Thanks! We are also getting marrie i ROR in 2009. April 2009 is when we're planing for. We have to wit for April 2008 to start to look at the pricing, but so far this is what we THINK we want . So far it looks like the last week or April and the hunney moon will be the first week of May 2009. so excitting!

You might want to take his name out of your post if he doesn't want the resort to know that he feels this way ... just a thought. Apart from that though, excellent write up. It'sso hard to tell what to expect from these destination resorts, but the mre couples that talk about what they experience, the easier it is for the rest of us to choose. thank you
  7. Hello All! I've been enjoying all the reads on this forum. It answered alot of questions we have. I do have one questions of my own.... For those of you who have stayed or going to be staying at Riu Ochos Rios, how much was it to stay for a week...roughly...and which month? We went to the travel agent today and got some prices for April 2008 and they quoted us about $2000 (taxes in). Now this is not considering any group discounts or advance booking. We're planning our wedding in April 2009, and since the prices are not out for 2009 yet...it's been hard for us to get an idea of how much it's going to cost our guests. Thanks!! J&R
