    What do you guys think about this I plan to have about 20 guests. We are thinking of staying at Riu Ocho Rios so far. I was thinking about having my ceremony and reception offsite at this beautiful place called The Ruins at the Falls. Ruins Jamaica. We could have our ceremony on a deck right in front of the falls and then have a small reception there on one of the decks. Then back to the resort for a quick change and partying in the nightclub. What do you girls think

    Just glancing at the website, it looks like it'll be gorgeous. Just remember to budget for transportation to the ceremony for your guests.

        Wow that does look beautiful, I love the gazebo where you would have dinner! I second that you should check into transportation to ensure all your guests arrive on time. We're honeymooning at the Riu Ocho Rios, it looks awesome!

              I think that sounds like a lovely idea. You could actually save money by hosting it much earlier and serving guests lunch or brunch vs. dinner. I really like the idea of an after party and switching attire.

              happy planning!
