ROR Brides - September Wedding Weather

Recommended Posts

Ms Wenna, since you, me and KHarrod will be at ROR during the same time you should seriously consider splitting photog's airfare/hotel 3 ways! She has a really good deal on DW, splitting that 3 ways is such a steal! I'm thinking of going with the same photog that KHarrod is using, it saves sooo much $$. Plus her pics are beautiful!! She's done at least one other BDW bride's photos @ ROR and they came out really nicely!

Hi Wenna, It's my understanding that the extra $200 is for an outside photographer only if he/she is from the Jamaica area. Any photog outside of Jamaica can take your pics as long as they staying at the Riu.

Hi ladies,

 

I am considering doing my Sept '09 wedding at ROR. Haven't booked yet, the date I really wanted 9/12 is all booked for the times I wanted (lucky girls :)) I am debating on a wedding during the weekhuh.gif? How far in advance did you guys book? I thought I was on the ball, but you ladies are way ahead! How did the booking/confirmation process go?

I got married on August 25, 2007. Yes, it was hurricane season. During the previous week, Jamaica was hit by Hurricane Dean. My trip was delayed by two days. When we got there, Ocho Rios had a curfew. Everything closed between midnight and 2 am. Plus, the areas that were opened were running on limited electricity. There were plenty of blackouts during that week.

Honestly, August and September in Jamaica is very HOT!!! The temperate can go over 90 degrees. In addition, the weather doesn't cooperate fully, but it is tolerable. It is hurricane season. It will rain for about 5,10, even 20 minutes. It will cool down for a few minutes. Then everything will dry out immediately, because the heat will return.

It all depends on where you are getting married too. If you are getting married by the water, it tends to be cooler. I got married in a tropical garden. LOL, that "ish" was HOT!!!

I have family (husband's and mother's) throughout the island. So, I had the pleasure of experiencing the different temperatures/climates throughout the island i.e., cool Blue Mountains (Mandeville), hot as hell Kingston, to breezy, hot and cool Ochi (St. Marys)!

 

Good Luck!!

Hi msasfraz, I wonder if you would share your weather experience? I have a Sept 09 date booked and would appreciate hearing about your Sept weather experiences.
Thanks, Jess

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
