Hi ladies! I'm back! And thought I would fill you all in quickly about our trip.
The RUI was amazing. The service was great, and the Jamaican people are wonderful. We were upgrated from our junior suite to a deluxe ( and I mean DELUXE) suite with a jacuzzi on balcony - which was the size on our 20x20 deck at home! Absolutely beautiful room. We were able to keep it for the whole two weeks, but weren't upgraded until tuesday (arrived sunday). We went with the free package. Ended up paying a total of $4000.
$250 - basic price
$350 - steel band at ceremony - a wonderful choice
$350 - dj - reception at seagrape - he was awesome, i did bring 3 cds of our own music - and he did a great job!
$450 - open bar at reception.
Ladies - the Seagrape is the way to go!!! Your in Jamaica - why wouldn't you want your reception on the beach? There was a bonfire down by the water which we had our first dance song to, and it reminded us of home. SO NICE!
$450 - appitizers ater ceremony
$1000 - photos - this was for a total of 3 hours and 156 pictures on cd. Michael was excellent! I love my photo's!
$532 for flowers - bouquets etc.
$800 - upgraded decoration at beach gazebo. They transfered the flowers to our dinner tables and then to tables at reception, then to our room afterwards. perfect!
$50 - upgraded cake - i believe this charge was for the flowers on it.
My opinion on the DISCO - a great place to dance and drink with you friends.
Maybe not so much on your wedding day reception(this is just my opinion, and don't want to hurt anyones feelings). It has no windows. It is a square, with speckelld carpet on the walls and lots of mirrors. There isn't much room for chairs or tables at all. There are bar stools around the bar, but that is it. If you are not getting a drink or dancing, there isn't much room to do anything else.
Beach party Reception
- I wouldn't. I never did stay at the beach to watch the whole entertainment, on the beach party night, but it was very crowed, and not personal if you wanted something special. Maybe if your group was small.....again, just my personal opinion, and trying to help future brides.
If anyone has any questions - bring m' on! or wants to see pictures of something specific let me know, and i can email you pictures.
Now can someone help me get a TTC ticker going? lol.
