Back from our ROR Wedding

Recommended Posts

You're amazing! The whole time I was reading your review I kept thinking "you're better than me". You really showed what it means to be a beautiful bride. It's easy to smile when all is well, but when there's a few bumps, the bridezilla usually comes out.

 

I'm sorry that you were made to feel like your day wasn't important to them, but it was the most important day to the most important people in your life - and that's what counts!

 

Congratulations and all the best to you and your new husband!

You looked beautiful

I'm sorry to hear that things did not go as planned for you.

Did you talk to the Riu at all and let them know of all the blunders that happened?

Maybe they could compensate you some way...it was your wedding day and you did bring a bunch of guests to stay at the hotel? I would look into this.

You were unbelievably accommodating in their mistakes.

If you have more pics, please post!!

congrats!

I agree about your attitude- you handled everything with such grace. I hope they compensate you in some way. That is a lot of mistakes to happen!

Thank you for the review! As much as you think it's in bad taste for the brides to be it's definetly handy! Now I know what to ask for and what to keep an eye out for ;-)

 

You are absolutely gorgeous! I wanna see more pics!!!

I'm glad that you made the best out of that situation and that you still have positive memories from your special day! Frankly, I would not have handled that as well, and I hope this is not a sign of things to come for future weddings. I understand things won't be perfect, but they could've tried a little harder. I hope you get some recourse from Riu.

 

Aside from that, you looked beautiful...congratulations!

I am so sorry to hear that things didn't go as planned. We ran into some of the same issues. She was late to get me and the chocolate cake.... wasn't chocolate at all. They even took it back and asked someone but brought it back to us and said it is chocolate. OKhuh.gif Anyway you did look amazing and you will always have the memories and hey your on the beach in Jamaica what else could you want... I can't wait to see your pictures!!

First of all, congrats! Second, I applaud you for your grace. You really had the right attitude throughout the day, and took things as they came at you. I am sorry things weren't really the way you expected, but you have really helped me to know what to expect as I leave very soon. Thanks for such an honest review!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
