Newbie needs some HELP!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Melanie and I am new to this forum. My FH and I have decided to get married in Jamaica in Nov. of 2009. We met with our TA yesterday and are torn between ROR or Riu Negril. I've read ALOT of posts about the both and they both look great. We have a group of about 20 going and when we come back we plan on having a big reception so everyone who couldn't come can celebrate with us. I'm trying not to go overboard down in Jamaica as far as cost because the reception alone is costing us about $6000. I will be in my last semester of college, with a baby, and only my FH working so we arn't exactly rollin in the dough so to speak. Any suggestions, comments, concerns would be greatly appriciated.

Hi Melanie!

 

Congrats and welcome to the forum. I'm sure you will find a ton of help here! My advice as a photographer would be to stick to local vendors, vendors that work with the venue aren't necessarily the cheapest, so be sure to shop around a bit.

 

good luck with your planning!!

Welcome to the forum!

 

I can't speak for the RIU, but I just went with the free package and I had a beautiful wedding.

 

I did my own silk flowers and paid a minimal amount to decorate the ceremony site ($250 for fresh flowers and an aisle runner.)

 

I think you can easily stay within your budget if you try. There is still plenty of time and you can shop around to find the best deals.

 

Good Luck and Happy Planning!
