~ 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!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
