    ROR Brides (Riu Ocho Rios)

    Erica, There was nothing really on except regular resort shows (for the exception of Sat. bon fire). There was a small group during our stay in September. What they did is they went to Margaritaville after dinner. It's not far from the resort (maybe 5-7 mins drive)

    ROR Brides (Riu Ocho Rios)

    Hello Ladies, I got married at ROR on the 15th of September. I posted my review (if that's what you want to call that lol) with some pictures. It's in the resort section. Ladies - go in with open mind, relaxed attitute and you will have the best time of your life! I know many ask about the beach party - I think it was worth every penny! I know 2-2.5 hrs doesn't seem like much, but it's the 2 - 2.5 hrs you'll love. You can then hit the disco, and you can alway talk to the dj at the disco to play the style of music you like. Enjoy every moment - like many of past brides said before - the day goes by fast - make sure you take in every minute.

    We had 23 people and we had the beach party. In my opinion.... it's worth the money. With the dj - if this is the price Keisha quoted you - take this email with you. She will try to charge you the new price, but if you say that's not the price you discussed, she'll honour it.

    Hi Ladies... so I have been married now for 12 days!!! Yey. I will post my review and some pics later this week (probably friday when I'm off work). Just like Erica (Soon2BNJersey) said - there is no point of sweating the little stuff. Do bring your emails as keisha does tend to put in prices I've never heard of, but honours the prices she gave you by email. Review to come no later than Sunday.

    Any Brides doing TurboFire???

    I have the program, completed it as well. Yes - you see results! however, if you just exercise and eat whatever you want, you're not going to see it as much. If you follow her plan - you'll starve lol.. i think it's worth the money. Read the booklet that comes with it, you'll get a better handle on food, and follow the program. There are days that ask you to do double workout (two short workouts). I felt to tired sometimes to do both, so I would not do it, and just complete the once I missed at the end of the program. I dropped a bit of weight on it (can't remember now as I get mixed up with Insanity) and a LOT of inches.
  6. Call RBC travel insurance and see if they offer cancellation insurance which covers additional expenses on top of the package; flight/hotel/wedding costs. You may not be able to book this with the online booking engines (sunquest/itravel2000 etc), but you may be able to do it directly with the company. If the don't, go on the vacation search engines; again, sunquest, sunwing whatever else and see what other insurance companies they use and try them.

    Guests paying?

    If you want a frank opinion; I would be offended if I was invited to a wedding (regardless where it was) and I was asked to pay for my dinner. Drinks - no problem as many weddings have a 'money' bar, but not dinner. Perhaps just advising that the transport to and from the island is maybe 50% to 70% of the cost and the guests are responsible to absorb that. Don't mention that is partially to cover for dinner.
  8. These are very pretty, and adds a personal touch as you actually fill in the address secion by pen.
  9. I'd say ours are about $30/bag. We have 21 to date confirmed, and we may have 2-3 more come. This is what we did We have one bag per couple (one per individual traveller) - Drawstring bag: big enough to fit a pair of sneakers, bottle of water, sunscreen etc. We have printed two palm trees on it with our destination and wedding date. No names. Inside the bag: - flip flops (I got everyone's sizes suposedley for a bridal shower game lol) -sunglasses with case (the cloth ones) -womens & men's nail kit -small bottle of sunscreen -hats (off vistaprint); this is for men, as weomen will get a special gift at the ceremony (hand fans - forget the proper name) -candy (random candies packed in a small sack) We may have one toddler come, so we got a water set for him and his own special hat. I think that's about it... might of forgotten something onthe list.. but I think that's it.

    Sombreros and Chanclas

    That's a great evil idea. I have a complainer too, so I might have to ask him to wear the dreadlock jamaican hat lol

    Best Friend/ Maid of Honor drama

    It seems that a lot of brides have this issue with their MOH in the beginning. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones, but my friend who is also getting married this year, has an issue - they are all in arguments over b.s. all the time.
  12. This is really nice. I love your note about the social networks... I wasn't sure how to communicate that across.... kindly and respectfully are the words I was missing. Great job. Can't wait to see the oot/welcome bags
  13. I'm not sure if you have Blacks Photography in the States, but that's one company in Canada I know of that will do it if you go in. I'll be doing my online as that will be my thank you 'card' for those who are coming with us. So it's easier for me to do it ... and it's only about 4.99CAD plus shipping per book of 20 pages.
  14. I'm not sure if the pearls actually have any meaning, but white is purity, cleanliness, and innocence. So maybe that has something to do with it?
