Attn Ror Brides....

Recommended Posts

I have read in your posts that several of you had rain on your wedding day. I don't want to travel all that way just to be married inside. How long was the hotel willing to wait, in order for the rain to pass, so you could still do your ceremony outside?

Hi there, I havn't been married yet, but I totaly understand where your coming from! I also didn't pay all that money to get married in teh rain. If I were you, choose the seafed season to travel. I'm going in April, the month with the least rain days. And I gues, if you are the last getting married on that day, it will be ok to wait a while untill it gets dry. Everybody I knew that hav been to Jamaica, told me that if it rains, it only is for about e few minutes or so. So dont worry, you will be fine!

I would not worry about the rain, I have also read a review where it rained all day and they had a beautiful ceremony in mammee restaurant with the ocean in the background and it was sunny again for the beach photos.

I was not a ROR bride, but a Jamaica bride.

 

It did rain on my wedding day. It only lasted about 10 minutes. I got married at 4:00 pm. It does tend to rain later in the afternoon. We only had rain 2 maybe 3 days of our 8 day drip, and it was always 15 minutes or less.

 

Our ceremony was only about 12 minutes, so we had plenty of time. The reason I chose 4, even knowing the chances of rain, was because it was the last wedding of the day. Most brides had at least 30-45 minutes of "wiggle room".

 

Usually, the earlier in the day you get married, the less chance of rain. The showers seem to be between 2-6, as the sun goes down and it cools off.

It did rain on my wedding day!!!

 

The rain there comes and goes, and usually doesnt last long and even on a semi cloudy day it looks great (and is even better for pictures - so says my cousin who was my photog). ROR & Chandlyn really works with you and is really laid back, so if you are willing to wait it out, they will go along with that. My wedding was suppose to be at 12 and we ended up not getting married until 2pm. If it would have been any longer I would have had to wait untill after the next wedding. The next brides time was actually 2. She was going to to hers inside (which is actually open to the beach) but once it cleared the bride changed her mind. So they did mine than hers. We all were pretty laid back so it worked out. I say, dont worry about it and all will be fine.

It rained on my day as well...but it was over so quickly...The forecast even told me it would be raining the entire 2 weeks I was there...it rained, but it only lasted like 15 mins and that wasn't even everyday... You will be fine. I heard one bride postponed her ceremony until the rain passed and it was no problem...

We got stuck with a 12 noon time for our wedding (it's gonna be Hot :) but from what I read showers tend to happen later in the afternoon, so I sold myself on the 12 noon by saying less chance of rain!

You can definitely do your ceremony at Mammee Bay or the Plantation if it rains. You're covered, but the restaurants have no windows so you're technically still outside. You still get that tropical feel since the beach is in the background. You can manuever from your hotel room to Mammee Bay without ever getting wet, but if you do it at the Plantation you'll have to take a quick walk in the rain. We had to move our ceremony in to Mammee Bay because it rained just about ALL day!!! But everything worked out fine. I wouldn't advise using the conference room by the front desk, but that's just personal preference.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
