  2. Hey Ladies!!!!!!!!!! I hope all of your wedding planning is coming along great!. I got married last May at the ROR and it was such an AMAZING time. My husband promised me that we would go back to celebrate our 1 year!!! I just wanted to know if anyone has done this before and if the ROR offers anything special to couples returning for their anniversary, such as a room upgrade or anything like that. Please please feel free to message me if you have any questions about the wedding and resort. I was so into the resort and believe me I can answer probably most of your questions!!!! Happy planning and you will NOT be disappointed with the ROR Meghan

I used the photographer from the hotel photo shop. His name was Phillip. He was an amazing photographer and I hope he is still there!!! He captured exactly every photo that I wanted and then some. I am really pleased the way they came out.

  5. Hi everyone! I finally finished my cards and sent them out 1 month after our wedding. We got married on May 14, 2010 at ROR! I created them online via snapfish.com! Hope you like it!
  6. Hi! I was just in Ocho Rios, and we did a few things. If possible, do do do dolphin cove!!! It is a once in a life time experience and everyone will love it. Also we did the Chukka Caribbean Tours zipline a river tubing. The zipline was ok, for it only had 3 platforms tgo to. The tubing was beautiful. Its about 3 miles down the river and the water is nice and refreshing. We did some shoping too in downtown near island village. The taj mahal shopping center has a bunch of the same stores so shop around! Have fun!!

I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do and was hesitant to rent the DJ equipment because I didn't know what that would include. I had copied all my wedding music on all 3!!! But i ultimately just used the cds. I just brought my ipod and laptop along in case of any problems. The equipment is easy to use and they guy that sets it all up shows you how to use it. It includes the speakers and the dj music system.
  10. Thanks everyone for your great ideas!!!!!
  11. Hi everyone. I could not find any posts related to my question. I recently got married on may 14 and I am planning an AHR in august. I was wondering if any one had any good websites for informal invites. I was looking for something like "we tied the knot....please celebrate with us..." Any ideas?? Thanks Meghan
  12. Thanks for the compliments!!!! The flowers are real touch. I tried to spend money on things that I would get the most out of. I went for the real touch only because they matched perfectly, and I could not see spending money on flowers I could not take home. Plus I did not like the choices offered for the free flowers because nothing really matched my colors and you only get a few choices. I would highly recommend real touch flowers because at least you can keep them forever! I got a lot of compliments on them and they photographed very well.
  13. I asked at the front desk and I asked Chandlyn when I had my meeting with her. I was upgraded to the next category room for free. It is also based upon availability. I went during the off season, there was not that many people there. So just speak to the girls, Im sure you will because they upgrade a lot of brides
  14. Hi everyone! Here is my review and if you have any questions at all feel free to PM me and I will answer them to the best of my ability! RIU Ocho RIOS I must first say that the entrance to the resort is something out of a magazine...the drive was lined with towering palm trees, it was just beautiful. Upon pulling up to the lobby, all you can see is the turquoise ocean, it was like "Hello...Welcome to Paradse!" The hotel staff was amazing. From the moment we arrived, we were well taken care of. We arrived on May 11th around 1230pm. We were under the impression that we would have to wait to check in at 3, but our room was indeed ready and we checked in immediately. We were also greeted with delicious rum punch in the lobby. We were upgraded to a HUGE suite with an ocean front room. Our balcony overlooked the gazebo where our ceremony was held. It was amazing. The room smelt a little musty but it wasnt anything too bad. However, if you like using the stairs, use them. The elevators are very very hot and smelly, there isnt any ventilation so the must smell is strong. The food was just excellent. We did not want to get up at 630 am to wait in line for the gourmet restaurants to make reservations. So we dined at the buffet every night. Also, they do have different selections night by night and it is a beautiful restaurant. The entertainment was every night and it was great. There was dancing, comedy, and different acts that went on through out the week. There was always a big crowd, so go early to get a good seat! Our wedding We met with Roxy the second day there and she was fabulous. We went over everything that I had in mind, and believe me, she worked her magic. Everything I had envisioned she put together, it was like she was in my head lol. Seriously, she did a fantastic job. I brought my own decorations to save money, and it looked beautiful. I also did the steel drum band and that was so worth it, it really made the wedding that much better. The ceremony was beautiful but it went by way to fast. My advice is to have someone record it, weather it be professional or just a family member. You are going to want to see it!!! Im glad I did! I had a professional photographer named Phillip and he was a blast. He took some really good shots of us. I highly recommend him Our dinner was at Mammee Bay Steakhouse. The food was excellent. Our waiter Barris, was just awesome. He treated us like we were the only guests in the entire hotel. The cake on the other had was just ok. It tasted as if it were in the freezer for a while...yuck..but the frosting was good lol! I decided to go with the after dinner reception on the beach at the Seagrape bar. We rented the dj equipment and I brought my own music, and that went very smoothly. It was so perfect, I mean we were dancing to our first song underneath the stars and the moon on the beach in Jamaica. It couldn't have been a more perfect day for us. Other stuff and closing We also swam with the dolphins at dolphin cove, shopped in downtown Ocho Rios, and did Chukka Caribe Zip line and river tubing. Everything was so worth it. I have to say that every single penny that we spent was worth it and more. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. It went by way to fast , so enjoy ever moment. I would recommend the ROR to everyone! We are already planning a return for our 1 yr anniversary!! Please contact me with any questions
  15. Hey girls!!! I just wanted to let everyone know that this resort is an A++++++!!!! I am still here and I will be back home Tuesday night so I will post my full review as soon as i get back but in the mean time, anyone planning a destination wedding, THIS IS THE PLACE!!!!!!!!
  16. my husband-to-be has always wanted to see dolphins up close and personal. He has no idea that there is place in Ocho Rios Jamaica called Dolphin Cove. I have booked us a program that lets us swim with the dolphins. I feel that this will be worth more then anything to him!!!! Also, I got him a nice watch, but he will like the swim more!
  17. I would love love love to know too!!!! I just checked the 10 day future cast for the weather in Ocho Rios, and NOTHING but rain and t-storms from now until may 1st. Girls my wedding is on May 14!!! Im going to contact Chandlyn right now and ask, I should have done this a LONG time ago!!!!!

  23. Hey girls!!! I have a question for you. I have approx. 16 ppl so far booked, with 7 rooms. The free wedding pkg is up to 20 ppl WITH 10 rooms booked. The classic pkg only accommodates up top 10 ppl + Bride and groom. Ok, here is my dilemma. I have to book the royal pkg (up to 40) but I was wondering if the wedding department would negotiate a lower price taking into consideration I am almost in between pkgsand will not be needing a larger cake,champagne, ect. Has this ever happened to anyone or has anyone had this same concern Thanks so much everyone!!!
