Recommended Posts

Calling all RIU brides. I am getting married at the RIU, Ocho Rios. on April 12th. . but have no clue what I am doing! I have a 2:00 wedding ceremony and a 6:30 dinner reservation at the Mammee Restaurant. There are 19 of us at the resort. . .but that is all I know! I know nothing about decorations. . .what to do wit hthe guests between the ceremony and reception dinner. . .and I get no responses from Chandlyn. Any words of wisdom out there?

Well...Chandlyn usually takes a few days to get back to all of us. Sometimes maybe a week or so...she has so many of us brides emailing her she probably gets a bit overwhelmed. as it gets closer to your wedding she will respond a lot faster i've heard.

Hello my fellow Chester county resident! Are you snowed in too? We are getting married at the Riu. There have been some great threads about this. If you go up the search and go under Jamaica and search for this, there should be a bunch of options. As far as decorations, you can check out Cali's pics. She just got married there. Oh, and pouchie just got back, and someone else. There is a girl there now getting married, so when she comes back, she might have tons of pics of decorations. As far as Chandlyn goes, I heard that when it is closer to your wedding, she will get back to you sooner. Relax, it will be okay! So far, I have heard nothing but good things about the ROR and weddings.

When I find the link with decorations i will post it for you, but dont stress. Right now just make sure you have everything you need together...bridal gown, and bridal party attire...guest favors...etc... .

Hi... as a 2009 Riu bride I don't have a ton of info for you.

 

But I know there is a whole thread from a while back of people with early ceremony times looking for ideas... http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t8501 (not sure hot to make the link work... but it it doesn't search the Jamaica thread for All RiuOR Noon or Earlier Brides)

 

Also if you look through the major ROR thread there are previous posts on arches, flowers and other decorations. I may have some of the stuff saved so if you want to PM with your email address I can forward you what I have.

 

And like the girls suggested.... look for previous (or soon to be) ROR brides. Everyone is wonderful at posting reviews full of pictures and ideas!

 

Good luck!

Also... I personally don't think you necesarrily need to overly worry about what your guests are going to do between. People can break apart and do what they want... or everyone can go hang out at one of the bars and socialize.

Just A Thought.. My Time Was Scheduled For 1:30, But Some "blessed Soul "made A Post Stating That If You Call Riu In Mexico (which I Think Is The Headquarters) They May Have An Opening For A Later Time. Thank God My Time Is Now 4:00. I Will Try To Find The Number, But Check The Threads. Good Luck.

I originally had the 1:00 slot, but I emailed Carolina (RIU Corporate) and got changed to 2:00. Then, I asked again a few months ago and was able to get the 4:00. So it's worth a shot to contact them to see if anyone has canceled.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
