  1. @kaitstr I'm so glad the review was helpful! We ended up with about 50 people total at the wedding. When you're looking at wedding packages offered by the resorts, make sure you look at how many guests the packages account for. For example, the free wedding package is only for like 4 guests. We went with the Caprice package and reserved the Mahoe Bay Steakhouse for the reception. I highly recommend it

  3. This isn't a great thread for answers. Click the link below to go to a much more informative thread about Riu-Montego Bay. We had our wedding there June 23, 2012, and it was awesome. Several girls have posted their reviews on the following thread which are super helpful. Good luck! http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/72216/riu-montego-bay/80#post_1789429
  4. We did one hour, but that hour went by fast!!! If you want to do underwater stuff (not just like....splashing in the surf or getting waist deep) I'd definitely plan on two. It also depends on where you're having your shoot. If you're going off resort, you're going to need to talk to your photographer and see if travel time is included. If you're having the shoot at your resort, it will save some time.
  5. I LOVE this dress! Great choice. It will definitely be light and airy. A belt might be hard to add since it's not a straight waistline, but I think a glitzy headband in your updo would be gorgeous! Add some jewlery and a veil....you'll never be able to tell this was a bridesmaid's dress.
  6. Yup, the WC set up everything. Well...not her exactly. She had some helpers, but it all got set up. I gave her place cards and a seating chart, centerpieces, the guest book, tea lights, and votives. The Caprice package also comes with flower petals that she laid as I walked down the isle and later used on the tables. It also comes with fresh flowers that decorated the gazebo as well as our table. The top is open air, but I totally recommend it. The reception won't start until 6:30 (we were a little late taking photos, so it didn't start till 7). There was a great breeze, though, and there's
  7. You should be! I'm excited for you. We did have to pay a vendor fee. It's $350 to bring in a photographer, and $200 to bring in a DJ. Sometimes, the vendors will split the fees with you. Our photographer had a wedding on Wednesday before ours on Saturday, so she just stayed at the resort as a guest, and the vendor fee was voided.
  8. Thanks Mrlddst! The Dj was $750. He came around 3ish to set up and began playing music at 3:30 for the guests. Wedding was 4-4:30, so he played for that. Then he broke down his whole sound system to take up to the reception and played from 6:20-10:30. He was so great. Videographer is separate. You'd have to talk to your photographer about that one. Stacey works with a videographer who is $200 for the whole thing which I really didn't think was bad, but we ended up not going with that.
  9. Riu Montego Bay Review Hotel: A I would definitely go there again. I. Rooms: - I have heard some complaints about the rooms. We had 46 guests with our group for the wedding, and we had NO problem with the rooms. They had AC, they were plenty big enough, balconies were great, and most of all…we were never in there! We were outside the whole time unless we were getting ready. If I had to be picky…our bed was two beds pushed together which I did have an issue with at first, but it turned out to be, “No problem, Mon!†It was totally a non-issue. II. Food: A - There
  10. After much deliberating...I went right in with my wedding dress, and I'm so happy I did. It was fine! I put the dress in the tub afterwards, and most of the sand fell out. Then I hung it, and it took about two days to dry. Looks fine now. Sorry..no professional shots yet. Just this one so far.
  11. I made my bouquets using $1 calla lily stems from Hobby Lobby, some floral tape, and some orange ribbon. They were super cheap, traveled well, and I couldn't be more happy with them. Sorry...not super great flower shots, but it's the best I have so far lol.
  12. I posted in here when I first found my dress 18 months ago! Here it is on our wedding day. It was style Vivianna by Wtoo dresses.
  13. Here is our cake!!! It turned out so great. It was just buttercream icing. I brought the flowers (bought 1 bunch from Michael's for like $3) and the ribbon (Hobby Lobby) which was leftover from my bouquets. I was very happy with it. Delicious too!!!
  14. Haha that's okay! It's a great tradition, and I'm happy that everyone will be able to partake in it. Pass the journal too so everyone can write in it! I found something else to stick in my bouquet as a replacement. Thanks for keeping the tradition alive!!!! You ladies are amazing.
