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.
        My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

          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://bestdestinati...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.
