    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!!

        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. OK 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!
