~ I'm back from Riu Negril!!! ~

Recommended Posts

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. smile123.gif

 

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!!

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!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
