  2. lol they actually did use them..... for the rain! haha It's really NOT that hot down there... its nice and breezy so I honestly dont think they're really needed... unless it rains
  3. yea it was a REALLY nice resort! Don't worry your guests will thank you for picking this resort. You must be getting soooo excited! When do you leave? What airline are you taking?

I hate it that I can't get any answers anymore. I have alot of guests arriving on different days. I wanted to be able to tell them before hand where to meet for a welcome dinner and since Tina won't respond I can't pre-plan anything. They arranged the welcome dinner like the day before and then had to change the number (add more) the morning of. I wouldnt worry about... it's not hard to set up. THey do it at St. Annes and all

I am preparing for emergency situations as well - I haven't heard from the ROR in a month so I have no idea if we are on file somewhere, where we stand in our plans etc. We have a fall back plan of an off-resort wedding ...just in case I just walked write up to the office door and opened it and walked upstairs and she was there! Everytime. I wouldn't worry.... you'll see her

I brought my IPOD down just in case they didnt have certain songs and I had the DJ control everything. He switched back and forth... he was really good! And it was nice not to have to worry about it.
  7. Hey everyone I got married on June 24 with the new WC..... if you have any questions just let me know!!! I also talked alot about her in my review
  8. Okay so when you check in they have EVERYONES luggage in the main lobby and then they give you stickers to put on your luggage with your room number. I didnt just want to leave my dress in the main lobby with my luggage so I asked them to hang it up in the back and they did and it was fine. We got there around noon. Just asked them to hang it back there for you. If your dress is as big as mine your really not gonna want to walk around with it (it got heavy)
  9. Thanks everyone! I managed to get EVERYTHING down there in 3 suitcases for free lol... thanks to flying with Air Jamaica and 2 bridesmaids. On my way back I put the smaller suitcases into the bigger one so I only had two to travel back with and hubby took one... active duty military gets free checked luggage so it worked out well!
  10. and thank you everyone for the nice comments!

They looooved the resort!!! They kept saying how much nicer it was then all the other resorts they had to stop by on the bus ride from the airport. Dont Worry!!! Just focus on the wedding.

But it sounds like your wedding went well and you didn't have too many problems. Congratulations. yes bring everything! they will work with you and you will get what you want. don't worry about anything. I know it's easier said then done. Everytime you feel stressed jus
  13. Hey ladies just want to let you ROR girls know my review is posted with the details with the new WC.
  14. Okay Girls so this is it.... my Review of my wedding on June 24, 2010 at RIU Ocho Rios. First and foremost, of course I need to thank this forum because not only did you guys help with my planning but you helped me find the most amazing travel agent ever. Maureen is seriously absolutely fantastic. I don’t even know how to begin to thank her for everything she did with getting me and all my crazy family to Jamaica. Every problem that occurred Maureen handled instantly without any question. I even had a family member spontaneously decide to go at the last minute… I mean REALLY last mi
