  1. Pictures of our Wedding are now on Liam's blog - second one down, more photos to be added later. His work is amazing and he did the most incredible job at our wedding at the Riu Ocho Rios. Visit www.appleheadstudio.com and scroll down to Mirelle & James or under categories browse Destination Weddings. p.s. in the last photos I was doing the worm and didnt just trip :0 Mirelle
  2. Hi Liam, I was wondering about that. I couldn't get on there all day. But I found your twitter feed that said it was down as well. I had sent you an e-mail so hopefully you will get it later tonight. Mirelle
  3. Hi Everyone, I am getting married at the Riu Ocho Rios on March 16th of 2011 (will be there from the 12th -19th) and have been looking for a great photographer that was perfect for our Wedding. My sister got married in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Thanksgiving weekend this year and I absolutely fell in love with hers. So, I have asked Liam Hennessey from AppleHead Studio to come down and shoot for our Wedding. He is AMAZING! But its also a very long way to shoot one wedding and he is super busy, so if anyone was looking for someone that same week you should contact Liam if you are havin
  4. Hi! Thanks for all the great info! I have called there once and understand your frustration. I will definitly use your suggestion for flowers as well. Although we are having Destination Weddings, its still nice to plan things. I know I am going to be dealing with the same thing, but you have given me more information than I know I could get out of them. I wish you the very best at your Wedding. I am sure it will be beautiful and I would love to see pictures. Thank you again on behalf of all of us trying to plan at this resort. You have made our lives easier so I really appreciate y
  5. Hi! Â I have decided I want fresh flowers so if it means buying them on my own in town, I will do that. I have not found a photographer yet and I am a little worried...how about you? Â Mirelle
  6. Thank you! I think I made the right choice....its so hard when there is so many! Â Mirelle
  7. Thank you so much for the feedback. I think I will just search out some options online and see what I come up with. The private poolside would be beautiful. When is your wedding? Â Mirelle Â
  8. Hi everyone! Â So we are all booked for our Wedding on March 16th, 2011. Only 7 months left....yikes! I am just looking for some advice regarding receptions at the Riu Ocho Rios. I am curious about whether or not to rent out a private location or if the semi private is a good idea. I want to make sure I get what I want sooner than later because there are quite a few weddings that week. Â My parents have stayed at the resort and my mom was describing a wedding reception she saw that was located on the second floor of a restaurant and it was open air near the ocean. She did not know t
  9. Hi everyone who has suscribed or responded to this thread! I think I have finally found the answer to our problem. And I found the answer somewhere on this forum.... So..Sunquest has a lot of great deals and one of them is that if you book by August 30th of this year (2010) every 11th person travels FREE! I knew this awhile ago but because the cost was $1912.00 per person, James still did not like the price tag. So I found on here some people who were talking about the Sunquest deals and said that instead of them (bride and groom) or anyone else getting their trip free, they applied the

A few of our guests live in BC and after doing some research we discovered it was cheaper for them to just fly into Toronto and then fly out with the remainder of the group! Hope this helps:) Thank you so much for your reply. I wish we lived closer to Toronto because that is where the cost is really getting

The two TAs who seemed a little more willing to help were Travel Counselors and Flight Center. We went with TC b/c they were quicker to respond. As for pricing, we were quoted $1584 + $176 (taxes) for a d

It's relatively inexpensive to fly to PR and you don't even need a passport. I know there are other parts of PR that are supposed to be amazing as well. We just loved Rincon. Just a thought. Although I'd say the food was just alright. So maybe this doesn't help. I'm sure others are having weddings in PR on this forum. Congrats on the engagement! And I am open to anything and I really appreciate the suggestion and will look in
  13. Hello to all the beautiful past, present and future brides! I am really wanting to have my Wedding at the ROR as I love the culture in Jamaica and want nothing more than to return for my wedding. I have worked with quite a few TA's who cannot get me pricing for March 2011 for flight. We would really like to be able to tell people the cost of the trip with EVERYTHING included...taxes, air and accomodations. I have read that some people can do this for a good price and we are looking to not spend more than $1600 -$1700 per person in order to meet the needs of our guest. Is th
  14. Thank you for your replies! The people are on here are amazing and full of helpful tips. I have worked with a few TA's thus far but I really feel like no one is helping me get what I want. I think this forum is going to be the best thing for me, and I have already sent an inquiry on this forum for help from a TA. re: mexico as a destination I have been to Mexico and had a good experience but both of my parents went and became VERY ill and therefore really do not want to return which I can totally understand. So that is where is gets tricky because good food is extremely important
