The only thing I would have differently - get the band for another hour!

    Serena, I think I upgraded the flowers a bit . . . they cost me about $300 to change the bundle on the gazebo, add some greenery to the chairs and upgrade my bouquet (which I loved!). I also paid $5/chair (for the white ones). I think that's all I upgraded. MoKe0506: I think that was the cake included in my package . . . In my opinion, it would have fed about 30 ppl. I just brought a picture down to show Chandlyn.

    ROR - Marriage Certificate

    Yes, you get the marriage register right after signing it. I've been home since April 5th, but still haven't received the certificate in the mail.

Hi, if you check out the thread ROR Pictures, you'll see a picture of my wedding cake, which was part of the free package. It could probably feed 30 ppl! We had 23 people in total, and I think we only ate the top two tiers. No worries! (Print off a picture for your meeting with Chandlyn).

    Question about Catamaran trips...

    Hi there, I recently took a catamaran ride our to Dunns River from the Riu hotel in Ochor Rios. ABout 20 mins in, we stopped to snorkle for about half an hour, and then it probably took another 30 minutes to get to Dunns River from there. Unfortunately I would probably call the waters wavy. Especially when you sail back. I get quite sea sick myself, however I took 1 Bonamine (??) before I left and one on the way back and was fine. Fortunately, each stretch of the ride wasn't that long. Even on on the way back, wasn't more than an hour. Our tour was set up on the beach @ the hotel.

Also, were the gazebo decorations included or did you have to do any upgrades for the tulle and flowers? Do you have anymore ceremony pics that you wouldn't mind posting? I'm curious to see how the positioning is for the bride and groom inside of the gazebo. Thanks for everything! Your looked like you had so much fun!! I believe the decorations like tull and flowers are included but the flowers are birds of paradise. Since I didn't care much for the orange, I just went with some greenery onthe gazebo and on the first row of chairs. I think this cost a little extra. (Bouquet was $159). I'll try to get some pics of the ceremony up in a day or two . . .
  8. Hi Everyone, Got married at the RIU Ocho Rios. Here's a link to my pics. These are all taken by Christopher (a senior photographer of Michael's). Shaw Photo Share We got married at the lagoon gazebo. The white chairs were $5/ea. My bouquet was not part of the Free package and therefore cost an additional $159. It was booked through Chandlyn the day before the wedding. Vanilla cake was fantastic. Reception was at the Seagrape with open bar and a steel band. (Open bar was $10/pers. and Steel band was $250/hr.) Hope this helps.

    SeaGrape Reception Anyone???

    Hello! I just had a small (21 guests) reception at the Seagrape on April 1st. We paid $10/person for the open bar on the beach, and they set up one long table with enough chairs for everyone. There were also a few tiki toches set up halfway to the beach. The Steele Band was the best thing we could have done! We only got them for an hour, but they were fantastic!!! The only thing I'd redo about my day, was to have them play longer!! They were set up next to the bar, and so the dance floor was basically between the bar and the table that was set up. Everyone kicked off their shoes and went dancing! It was awesome! Also, because there were only enough chairs for us on the beach, other hotel guests new it was a private party. I would recommend the seagrape!
