  1. I think the free package just covers the "legal" part of it, along with the minister fees...back 2 years ago when we got married we used the free package but paid so much more...we paid ofr white chairs, additional decor, private beach party, speakers......we ended up with 2 grand worth of stuff maybe..we had about 30 people.......I think back then, the basic package was 250? I had great service-and I had booked and requested things about 9 months in advance....and it was worth it..I saw other brides upset that what they wanted their wedding day was already booked up (and it was by me! lol)..a
  2. Hoping you could help me. As a former bride who used this site for my wedding in Jamaica, I thought it would be an excellent site to ask a few questions for a friend of mine. Everyone was so helpful here a couple years ago-just looking through all the threads, I miss being here! LOL So to the point...Shes gets married April 26TH, not too far away...and still hasnt been in contact with a WC...though shes made many attempts through the facebook group, calls, emails....Im pretty sure final payment was suppose to be made 45 days prior? And i DONT believe shes been able to even arrange that yet...y
  3. Ana...so sorry about not answering your questions in time..I havent been on here in awhile!!! Hope everything went smoothly! Im sure it did!
  4. Thanks a lot hockeymom97..... It makes me so sad to think its all over! Its all I can think of since we re back..Im on red tag everyday looking to go back to Jamaica. I miss it so much and its almost been 3 months. We truly had the time of our lives. That day was a dream come true for me, its exactly how I would have wanted my wedidng! I woke up with my groom, went to breakfast...we parted ways and I met up with my girls..had drinks getting ready, laughing the whole time..I chatted with my dad the whole way to the gazebo laughing...we laughed through our vows..and I cri
  5. PLEASE do not wory about choosing this resort. It was by far the best we, and a lot of our gusts have stayed in. Everything about this place was fabulous, i COULDNT GET over how everything was so clean, staff so pleasant, food so good, pools great, beach awesome..I loved it......I still dream about going back.......we'll be going back to Jamaica next year, and i wanna go back to ROR! As for the dress, the above is correct, all your bags are placed in the centre of th elobbyand you place your stickers on them, you re suppose to go about your buniness and let them take your bags. We didnt.

  7. wow--breath taking..I love the phtoshop work done to by the photag.....its all truly amazing, I looked into this for our wedding, I believe a set up cost close to 5 grand when I checked...

  9. I keep trying to post pics...but after reviewing the thread about posting pics, Ive decided to go ahead and join photobucket..Ill post the link when I get all my wedding photos uploaded......I plan to do a wedding album, Jamaica album, along with pics from my shower and stagette.....
  10. Ana, GOOD choice move about the cake! If you click that link inlcluded on my review, I think you ll see a pic of the cake, it was tidy, well put together, looked super cute. And was free. I wish I could upload my pics here lol..just cant....but they re all on the facebook group for RIU Ocho Rios. I think 10-12 people had a little piece.....tops.....But it was certainly big enough to feed out group of 38...DEF WOULD NOT BUY a cake, unless it was something of complete importance to the bride......and to be honest, the grooms father ended putting the cake in the grooms face later that night......
  11. IrishGirlInNY.......In regards to the flowers....Im not sure now...I just knew what I wanted, I wants an off white flower...preferably roses, with some white orchids, cause I had an orchid for my hair......and I found the one I wanted in the upgraded binder....its from the same vendor, the one the resort uses...I just personally didnt like any of the free bouquets...-its kind of over whelming too, cause you re just sitting there with binders full of flowers and have to pick one on spot.......it was great that I KNEW what I wanted, just had to find it....I would not waste my money on flowers fr
  12. Ohhh JennandMike08...PLEASE Dont stress over the small dets.....I know I did, and if I could go back Id change a few things, that would be one of them........and I would have tried to let the feeling go of me trying to control everything! lol Little stuff tho, like decor for the dinner table...I had white lanterns, and brow candle holders, the fake tea lights, flowers...I ordered some from online.....picked out matching stuff at stores, the worried about putting the stuff in other peoples luggage, then trying to tr4ack it all down once we were there, then getting it to Chandlyn, it was t
  13. Hi All! Wow...can't believe my wedding talk and meltdowns are over.....now on to more exciting things-THE HONEYMOON!!!!!! We got married May 6rth 2010 at RIU Ocho Rios. It was fabulous. We went with 38 of our friends and family, so it was the furthest thing from a honeymoon.....we literally had no time alone..ok, maybe when we went to bed, but that was it-and who can blame us-when would we ever get such a big crowd to vacation with? We' didnt book that second week, and we're kind of glad we didn't. We really got tired of the food, and we missed home..(I know I never thought Id w
  14. .....Im not sure how clear that post was lol......it was very odd we had trouble with our ipod originally...you shouldnt bring any cords or hookups or anything, just the ipod and docking station, we have NO idea what went on with ours originally...she said there must have been something wrong with the speakers (our luck).....she had it all plugged in and set up on the side.......once she realized the set up sucked...lol (cause of the crackling) she used another system, where we didnt need the docking station...just like plugging it into the car....lol....it wasnt QUITE as loud as the original
  15. Sweetluna....about the docking station.....it plugged in somewhere around the side of the bar...I honestly dont know, Chandlyn took care of all that...all i done was tell her at the meeting that we had an ipod and docking station. She suggested renting speakers because the entertainment up above is so loud (TRUE....DEF NEEDS SOME SOUND SYSTEM) Sooo....she met us there after the meal, actually she met our friends there to ensure the plug ins were correct...for some reason, our ipod was really crackly...she kept telling me not to worry...next thing knew I saw her coming down over the stairs with
