  1. The beach at the Riu Ocho Rios is great! A nice size, and no rocks or coral, just a little seaweed. Crystal clear water! Beautiful!

    ROR Beach Gazebo Warning

    I wouldn't sweat it. We had the beach gazebo last month and didn't even notice the gazebo's condition, and nobody else did either. Also, we realize now that there were the typical "dr. feel goods" at the property line, but the two of us never noticed during the ceremony, and the guests thought it was pretty funny. Not many people can say that they had people selling pot yards away from their nuptuals. With a destination wedding, we definitely found that it's so helpful if you just keep an upbeat attitude and be ready to expect the unexpected! And if you're still sweating the small stuff, just grab another margarita! No worries!
  3. We brought two photogs and had no problems. I would make sure you contact Chandlyn or Nikki before you go, and print out their emails saying it's OK, then keep those with you. We went with the free package, which didn't include photography, so nobody even asked us about it.

  5. I dreaded this same topic! My wedding was November 7th, right at the end of hurricane season. I had read some reviews telling people not to go in Nov. b/c of the rain. However, I wanted 4pm because the lighting is BEAUTIFUL at that time of day, and you're the last wedding of the day, so don't have to rush away. Most of the time we were there, it actually did its rain showers at noonish, not later in the afternoon. Stick with your guns about the 4pm, you won't regret it. Just remember, you can't control the weather so if you go with the mentality of "Jamaica no problem" you will have a fantastic wedding, come sprinkles or sunshine!
  6. I know this might not be the answer that you're looking for, but I wouldn't waste the effort. Everyone speaks english and they use the patois basically when they don't want you to know what they're saying. It sounds like a fairly complicated language, and I think guests would not get much use out of it, in my honest opinion.
  7. I had absolutely no trouble traveling with my dress. No extra charges, and the flight attendants practically worshipped it every time I stepped on board. Even if you do have to fold it, the humidity gets any wrinkles out. All of our guests had irons in their rooms, even though the Riu info says there are none. No worries!

    What's a good bar at ROR?

    Yes, I agree. The Blue Mountain bar area is the best place to meet up. The house band starts playing at about 8, and is fairly loud, so you may want to meet earlier than that. Entertainment starts around 9, so you would want to have all of your meet/greet done by then.
  9. It really freaked me out to look at the calendar and see that the wedding is one month from yesterday! Time flies so fast when wedding-planning. What exactly does Chandlyn contact you about besides reception info? I'm not whether to email her about little details, or to wait until our meeting there? How much detail are you going into with her?
  10. I haven't run across this in a thread yet..but I've been pondering this: If you don't have bridesmaids standing up with you, who do you hand your bouquet to when you need both hands

    ROR steel drum band

    I was also wondering about the steel drums...if you don't have them play at all during the actual ceremony, I assume they still count that into their time? It makes me a little torn that I would be paying for an hour, but if it's a 20 minute ceremony, would actually only have them playing for 40 minutes....
  12. Thank you SO much for posting that map. It's the first time I've seen one on here, and I was wanting to include one with our pre-travel information!
  13. Thank you sooo much, you just crossed one thing off of my list for me! So, did you cut each page into thirds and tie them together? I think that's what the picture shows...but am not 100% sure

    Bonfire at Seagrape reception?

    I've heard a lot of good things about it, but sometimes it seems like it's just there already, and sometimes people have been charged $150. So, if you decide to go with it, be prepared for the extra charge. I know we are going to go with it!
