        Yeah, time is FLYING by and I wish I had an extra month to finish all these last minute details!
        My ceremony is on the beach & my reception dinner is at Mammee Bay. I'm still uncertain about where we're going to "dance the night away". I am thinking about using Seagrape's & having it on the beach. I guess I'll make that last decision once we get there.
        From what the Riu says, Michael is the only photographer authorized to take pics at the Riu, but you may use your own photographer. You have to pay a breach of contract fee, or the photographer must be a guest of your's & stay at the hotel. I am bringing my own.
        As for the cake I'm on the fence about that right now. I may get the cake thats included or I may go with an outside bakery.
        In terms of decorations, all the flowers used for the ceremony, will be brought to Mammee Bay for the reception.
        Hopefully I answered all of your questions. If you need to know anything else just ask away. Also, be sure to go to the Jamaica forum. The info about the ROR & everyone else's plans & recent brides reviews are plentiful. You will find yourself addicted to BDW in no time.

              Yeah, I heard that about the photographer. I'll probably just use him. We're going to marry at the pond and the reception thus far at the Plantation due to the number of "possible" guest. I'll get that together soon. Seagrapes sounds nice, afraid of mosquitoes causing a problem. Should be ok though. I've read several times that the cake was not good, but in Jamaica it's not as important as if you were home. I'm trying to find a o/s bakery. We'll see. Who are you using for the flowers?

                You should be fine with the Plantation. The pics that I've seen of it decorated for weddings is very nice. Had I been having more guests I would probably have used it. And yes, the cake reviews are mixed. Some say its great others not so good. I think one difference is the rum so I'm going to make sure mine is plain, without rum.
                I'm sure you'll be fine with Michael as well. The pics I've seen of his work are good.
