Childcare at RIU resorts

Recommended Posts

I know that many of you have/had children attending your wedding. How is the childcare at the resorts? Did the children like it? Also, what about infants?

Do they keep children during the off-site excursions?

I'm trying to decide if we should just pay someones way to help with the kids. I have trust issues (lol) seriously.

Hmm. I don't know about the childcare down there. I think that I remember reading somewhere that they have something during the day for kids that were a certain age range, but because almost all the kids attending my wedding are either over or under that age I forgot. We are kinda all splitting up the kid duty for the trip, but youmight be onto something with the traveling with a designated "kid wrangler".

hmmmm.... Worth looking into.

I am worried about this too. I have a two year old ( or will be 2 when we go) and I have a friend who will have a 4 year old. I want to plan excursions but I don't know how reliable the babysitters are in Jamaica. Maybe one of the grandparents coming will be my babysitters. I'm stressed about it though!

We only had one child in our group- 18 months- and she was too young for the kids club/daycare service they offer. I never saw that many kids at the daycare place, but my room was on the other side of the resort. Its right inbetween the plantation restaurant and the Spa. There is a playground that is fenced in and some picnic tables that are under a cover for shade. I know that's not much help, sorry!

He read everything word for word. The only thing he added was the stuff at the beginning about if anyones knows any reason these 2 cannot be legally wed, speak now or forever hold your peace... and then you may kiss the bride (don't know how i left that out!!) I also didn't put anything in there about Who gives this bride away so he didn't ask that and I felt kinda bad cuz that was my dad's only role in the wedding but I guess the minister thought I might have left that out on purpose. Overall it went fine. I also put our names in bold face everytime they appeared to make sure he called us by the correct names.

You won't get to speak to him ahead of time, so just be sure that everything is written out exactly as you want it said. And the minister gets there like 5 minutes before the start of the ceremony so there isn't really a lot of time for the groom to brief him either.

Which postcard are you referring to? I had one that was the welcome letter on one side and then a timeline on the back and then I had a postcard that was a photo share card.

You can see pics of both in my planning pic thread (link is under my siggy) and I did them both at Vista Print.
