    TTD on small budget Jamaica

    Have you had any luck finding a photographer for a TTD session? We were married at ROR almost 2 years ago and HATE our pictures. I'm thinking about doing a TTD when we go back in June. I've sent an inquiry to Marcia Roberts to see if she would be interested. The wait begins!
  2. I know i'm a bit late to the party but i wanted to add that we didn't pay for anything with cash. We paid the entire thing by credit card (visa or m/c, can't remember which!) we did have to do 2 separate transactions though. Extras that we paid for are flowers and steel drum band. As for making your own beach reception, i am not sure if you'll have access to power if you do it on your own. The normal area where they set up the beach party is right below a bar and the show stage. THere is easy access to beverages (which they don't want you bringing the glasses on to the beach) but you will hear the shows as well. I would think that hanging out by the pool would be a little quieter but it is further from the open bars.

    ROR Coordinators

    I realize most of you are already married at this point but for anyone else who might end up reading this thread... Don't expect the co-ordinators to contact you. For things like reserving the Plantation or SeaGrape or a pool side reception, send an email as soon as you receive confirmation of your date & time to book those. For everything else, you will take care of that at your meeting at the resort. Try to arrange your meeting with Chandlyn before you leave home, maybe like a week or 2 in advance. If you have any questions ask here first, you will likely get a response MUCH quicker than trying to go through Chandlyn.

    ROR - Jr Suite locations

    When you check in, ask for a room on the inside of the horseshoe, overlooking the pool (these have an ocean view.) The outside rooms can be very noisy because they overlook the show stage or a neighboring bar (with a sideways look off the balcony, you can see the ocean.) You likely won't be able to see a lot of ocean on the 1st level of any room, the higher up you are, the better the view.

    Strange Emails from Lees Tours?

    I got the exact same email this morning... DELETE!

    Weddings at Noon, dinners at 6......

    The time between will fly by, trust me! Our ceremony was at 2pm and i wish we would have had another hour at least to take some more pictures. Our guests mostly sat around at the pool bar and visited (and drank!)

    ROR - Wedding May 8th - RAIN

    We got married at ROR on May 5th last year. The forecast leading up to our trip was rainy too, i warned everyone that i wasn't flying to Jamaica to get married inside so bring an umbrella!! HAHAHA!! Truthfully though, it rained only twice the entire week we were there, once it sprinkled like 12 drops then stopped, the second time, it downpoured for about 20 minutes. It rains a lot more up in the hills but that's far away from where you will be. Have a fantastic time, and if it does happen to rain while you're there, remember, it could be worse! You could be at home, not getting married in mexico! ETA: as you can see in my siggie pic, the skies were blue! This is what it was like for 99.9% of our trip. Here's hoping it's the same for you!
  8. I would do it again for sure! I loved the resort. It's a perfect destination wedding resort! If I were to change anything though, i would have hired a professional photographer rather than having my uncle (who is a professional photographer) do our photography. He missed out on so many special moments and the pictures turned out really crappy and i can't really get mad because he did it for free. I would also be more forceful with chandlyn and nikesha, i feel like they neglected us big time because we were fairly laid back and easy going.

    Jamaiaca Rum Cream!

    Check your liquor stores at home. You should be able to buy the sangster's rum cream there. I've seen it in almost every liquor store I've been in since. (I discover this AFTER lugging homes everal bottles!)

    Help... Riu Brides

    We chose ROR because it was the first to get back to us with availability! Hahaha! Montego Bay wasn't open yet and they were renovating one of the Riu's in Negril. I guess that means we had fewer options then. We really liked the Riu chain. The hotel was beautiful, food was great, service was really good, we all had a great time. I'm sure you'll love any Riu that you choose! I second the advice to look at pictures on TripAdvisor, man, i love that site!
  11. I'm glad you had such a great time. Are you going to post some pictures? I'd love to see what i missed out on!

    ROR brides??

    From my fridge ;-) Try a craft store if your fridge is void of magnets.

    Past ROR Brides... Silly Question....

    if the magnet will hold a few pieces of paper to the refridgerator, it should keep the a/c on!

    Past ROR Brides... Silly Question....

    The magnet we used was about the diameter of nickel. The surface area doesn't matter so much as the strength, a flimsy magnet won't likely work.

    Previous ROR brides... Tipping

I believe the tip I gave to Michael may have not gotten to him. I'll second this advice. Chandlyn's tip stayed nicely in my wallet since she couldn't be bothered to help with our wedding but was in a big hurry to attend another couple's rehearsal instead. We would tip the bartenders and servers $1 here or there, they really seemed to appreciate it. I tipped the salon girls $20 each for mani/pedi/hair/makeup for my MOH and I, they seemed extremely grateful. Tour guides/operators expect to be tipped, they earn very small wages and survive on those tips.
