  1. I got married at ROR in Jan 2009 and it was amazing. The day had a few blunders but I didn't really sweat the small stuff so still had a perfect wedding. The resort is gorgeous. It is a very large resort too so if you want to sneak away from guests attending, its really easy to do. The wedding co-ordinator has changed there though so this might be the reason for the negative reviews. I would do your research as you want your day to be as flawless as possible.

    ROR Review; Pic Heavy

    Great review and you looked wonderful. I had the same minister do my wedding in Jan 2009 - he did a wonderful job. Ahhh to be back there again Jamaica was too fun. Glad you had a wonderful time.

    Riu Ocho Rios Wedding

    My review should be in the reviews section under Rio Ocho Rios. My wedding was in Jan 09 but feel free to read if you want There are tons of threads as well...just do a search. congrats and goodluck
  5. I was there in mid Jan and I have thick mid length hair. I found my hair to be frizzy quite frequently. I would take a really good anti frizz styling product along with you for just the regular days there. Depending on how good your hair stylists are and what products they have, it might be do-able. The girls at ROR could do just about anything you wanted without a whole lot of frizz.
  6. We just watched the show and had some drinks. The disco opens at 11 so we went there once the show was over.

    Attn all future ror brides

    That is really disappointing to hear as Chandlyn did a wonderful job with my wedding (with exception of flowers). She just had a way of calming you. It will be interesting to see the upcoming reviews and how things went. Best wishes ladies . I hope your day's are everything you hoped for and this change in co-ordinators doesn't spoil such an important day for you. Try not to stress..

    RIU Ocho Rios Help!

Bring them along with you and check when you have your appointment with the wedding co-ordinator. Everything for us went super smooth and I was worrying for nothing. Try and relax and enjoy your day! It is what it is

    RIU Ocho Rios Help!

    1- Not too sure about music. I brought cd's along with me and they played them for us. I have heard about others bringing ipods and docking stations. 2- We tipped our wait staff as we had 32 people have dinner with us and our photographer as well. We did not tip the wedding co-ordinator as this is her job. Many do though. You do not receive drinks at your dinner unless maybe requested??. If you plan on tipping, I would wait until after the services are complete to do so to make sure you are satisfied. 3- The rain venue is the Mammee bay. I have not seen the set up for this so I am not sure what they do with this to make it weddingish. Hope this helps

    ROR...Elevator?

    There are elevators. I would suggest trying to book your rooms all in the same area. The resort is huge and we did a lot of walking while we were there. The wedding gazebo on the beach is at the opposite end of the resort from the standard rooms. I would say it takes about 10 minutes to walk there.

    QUESTION for ROR brides.....

    Some people do and some don't. I would suggest if you are going to tip either to wait until after everything is complete to make sure you are satisfied with everything. We made the mistake of tipping the photographer prior to receiving our pictures and some of our editing didn't get completed and they were going to have to ship our pictures to us. We only tipped our wait staff..and that was around $40.00.
  12. He took some really great pictures in the Dunns River Falls. Very nice.
  13. Hey If you ladies still come here, just wanted to wish you a very happy 1st anniversary.

    How did you choose the resort?

    I made a list of stuff i was looking for and compared the resorts. I picked ROR due to the fact they had a free wedding package, the wedding co-ordinator was highly recommended on this site, the resort was large so everyone didn't always have to be together, pricing, had several golfers in the group and there was golf close by. I wasn't disappointed with my choice either, the resort was absolutely beautiful.

    Video or more pic hours? - Help!

    I thought the video was a nice thing to have. They include some of your pics in it and it is all put to music with the exception of the ceremony. We had two hours of photo time and found that to be enough. You will also have your guests taking pictures and I found some of them had some great shots too.
