    We were married on July 15 at 4 p.m. on the beach with 31 guests attending. I was a little worried when we met with the wedding coordinator Keneika and she asked if we wanted to change it to the morning due to rain in the p.m. We stuck with our time and were happy because it was the best day the whole week! I had also been in contact with her and asked about calla lillies, but she never mentioned they had to be ordered ahead of time! I had a bit of a bridezilla moment, but got over it and picked out a bouquet that was just as beautiful. We brought our own music, which was played perfectly. The entire ceremony was about 15 minutes. Afterwards, we took some pictures with our friends, family and with the photographer. Because there was time in between, we gathered near the Steakhouse by the outside bar for drinks. The wait staff at the Steakhouse sectioned off an area for our group. They even created a "head table!" There were lots of choices for food (fish, beef, chicken). They were even kind enough to divide the champagne for everyone to make a toast as well as the wedding cake so everyone could have a piece (not the tastiest cake I've ever eaten, but it served it's purpose).
    After everyone went home, we took a taxi and spent the second week at Sandals Whitehouse (great food and beautiful!) for some alone time.
    We are very happy we chose this resort and even more happier we chose a destination beach wedding!

        Congrats and thanks for the heads up. Were getting married at Riu Tropical Bay, April 9, 2009. I kinda had my eyes on white calla lillies for both me and my maid of honour!

                    I put them in the post for you, when you get the photobucket code you want to click on the image icon (looks like a postcard with a mountian on it) and insert the code/url, and it will display them for you.

                    Pics are cute but a little small, if you have a chance to resize them at Photobucket that would be great :)
