    Thank you so much for this information. We are getting married at the end of August and my mind is just cluttered with so many decisions to make. We were leaning towards Shadows so it's good to hear some positive feedback about it.

    Our wedding is at 4pm as well. Was there a long delay between the wedding and the reception? What did you do to fill the gap?

    Also, we have 40 people coming so far. Which size cake did you have?

      After the ceremony, we took all of our pictures. Then, we had about an hour until the reception (reception at 6:30) so we hung out at the bar and had some drinks. It truly was perfect timing. I don't suggest planning anything specific for your guests in between ceremony/reception, after all they are on vacation, let them relax!!

      Cake- we had about 30 guests, so we upgraded to the medium size cake for $110. It was a perfect size, but, MAKE SURE YOU TELL THE WAITSTAFF AHEAD OF TIME IF YOU WANT THEM TO SAVE THE REST OF THE CAKE FOR YOU!!!!! Really..... my mom and mom-in-law were so mad cause after the cake was served, they took it away and we didn't get to have any for the next day! You can just tell them that night during dinner or something to make sure they save it!

      Let me know if I can help you more!!

        Thanks Amy. Your information and suggestions has definitely helped. I'm now headed in the right direction.

        I asked Dionne about the cake. She's saying there's only one kind, just different sizes. I was noticing for the ladies getting married at ROR, they seemed to have choices on flavors and decorations. Are the options at Negril just completely different?

          I just had white cake and it tasted great, I don't know what the other options are.
          For the decorations, you can really just tell them what you want it to look like and they'll do it. I didn't bring a cake topper of my own, so I just told the florist to decorate the cake however they wanted and it was much better than anything I could have thought of!!(i used the resort's florist). If you don't have something particular that you want, I'd just tell them your colors and they'll make it pretty!!

                How long did you guest stay and did you feel there were enough activities for them to enjoy?

                    First of all, Congrats! Thanks so much for the review, we are getting married there in May so its VERY helpful. Love your pictures too!

                    I have a question for you regarding the reception. We chose Sir Andrew for dinner and are also having a private reception. Does this mean it is automatically at Sir Andrew? I am just confused as to where the actual private reception will be. We are also having a DJ.

                    Thanks again!
